I forget who it is that has the friend with one, but you'll surely hear about it here.. He diarized about it a long time ago.. One of those TX blokes, IIRC.

Anyway, bob, crashy-crashy bang bang ? Maybe if you'd bought a real sound card with real MIDI inputs, real MIDI cables 'n'whatnot, you wouldn't have such problems.. At least it isn't blue screening on you yet..  Or is it, since you're asking about system restore etc..

And the caller into NPR was spot on.. Is KoS a phd/doc/lawyer ? Isn't the lawyer blog that /. links to all the time (about DRM in the courts) run by some rabbid nutso woman with no law degree ?  What quals does KoS have ? He only makes a living off it while folks buy his shit or comment on his board. Like our esteemed MNS cutting on boingo boingo's scene whores Xeni and Cory (and why I give johnny 'name dropper' shit here, since he's not around enough to be a regular), self-referential stardome attracts bugs and moths, not butterflys.. Stop consuming..

DKos has a law degree by Bob Abooey (2.00 / 0) #7 Mon Apr 03, 2006 at 10:54:54 AM EST
At least that's what he said. I don't doubt it, he comes off as a fairly bright guy, in some respects. I think he's got some sort of complex though as he was talking up all the money he's making off DKos, says he bought a house in Berkley and doesn't need a regular job and stuff like that. He makes some good points about the problems within the Democratic party, stuff like not having a platform and other obvious things like that, but I don't need to read no book to know that.

re: No, Windows has yet to crash on me, and there's nothing wrong with the sound card, at least as far as I can tell. (You don't need midi inputs on your sound card cause midi is just data anyways although that's a confusing point at first) Most of the crashes have happened when I'm not recording or playing back audio anyways, which leads me to wonder if it's not a driver issue. I think that's a standard response to people when their stuff is crashing. But who knows, having the latest driver is always good I suppose, I don't know jack about this driver stuff.

Woah someone has a bug in their ass by cam (2.00 / 0) #11 Mon Apr 03, 2006 at 11:48:17 AM EST
These sites have wider recognition because they have large audiences. I prefer that these people get recognition over someone that happened to land a job at a mass-media outlet.

System restore by blixco (2.00 / 0) #2 Mon Apr 03, 2006 at 10:40:03 AM EST
works pretty darn well, actually, assuming you have clean system retore points.

What's a clean system restore point???

Hopefully by blixco (2.00 / 0) #5 Mon Apr 03, 2006 at 10:48:38 AM EST
in your list of system restore points, there is one that isn't screwed by whatever it is you are restoring from.  In other words: a restore point that isn't affected by your software.

There will be at least one.

I always 'do a shelf search' for myself by DesiredUsername (2.00 / 0) #3 Mon Apr 03, 2006 at 10:42:52 AM EST
And unless it's a big fine, I just stick it in the return box like I just then brought it back.

I do the reverse of this, by garlic (4.00 / 1) #8 Mon Apr 03, 2006 at 10:57:47 AM EST
and shelf things that are going to get me big fines and tell them that I've already returned it.

That's whack by Bob Abooey (2.00 / 0) #10 Mon Apr 03, 2006 at 11:19:29 AM EST
You could end up paying to replace the item as opposed to paying a fine. The maximum late fee for DVD's is only $7, much cheaper than the cost to replace a 4 DVD set.

not when I tell them it's on the shelf. by garlic (2.00 / 0) #12 Mon Apr 03, 2006 at 11:52:34 AM EST
Plus, this is at the same library that submitted me to a collection agency because I forgot to return a book.

Yeah but by Bob Abooey (2.00 / 0) #9 Mon Apr 03, 2006 at 10:59:26 AM EST
I wasn't going to pay the fine cause it wasn't late, and if I did this high tech shelf search myself there's no way for me to prove that I didn't just bring it back. Not that I could prove it anyways but you'd have to be some kind of looooonatic to cram a late item on the shelf and pretend that you brought it back on time and they screwed up and didn't scan it.

Anyways, I win in the end. Bob Abooey 1, The Man 0.

OTOH, unfairly fined by DesiredUsername (2.00 / 0) #13 Mon Apr 03, 2006 at 01:39:15 PM EST
OTOH, I never begrudge Monet given to the library. I suppose if my librarians were big crabs all the time (*cough*AMHERST*cough*) I might be more a stickler.

Way to stand up for the Man Bob by georgeha (4.00 / 1) #6 Mon Apr 03, 2006 at 10:52:18 AM EST
because you know those libraries will just waste that money on liberalist stuff for people to poor to buy or rent their own stuff.


anyone who would call in by MillMan (2.00 / 0) #14 Mon Apr 03, 2006 at 04:23:28 PM EST
to yell at dkos is by definition a blogger wishing he was making as much money as dkos is.

Everybody still hates me in this city and I hate everybody.

That wasn't really the point by Bob Abooey (2.00 / 0) #15 Tue Apr 04, 2006 at 04:23:10 AM EST
DKos's book is basically talking about how the Internet/bloggin is changing the nature of politics. The caller stated that it wasn't because most people who blog aren't any more qualified/informed than the average putz in the local coffee shop, which is a valid point. That doesn't mean they don't have something interesting to say, but speaks more to the fact that while they may be interesting they may not know their arse from a hole in the ground.

That was a point that DKos missed as he got defensive and started to go on about how the "top" bloggers are lawyers and doctors and blah blah blah.

Warmest regards,
