Busy day today, again. Good thing I've got my mp3's on the stereo! Last night I updated my mp3 server control system to do better error checking and to play entire directories (rather than just single tracks). I found a new fun use for it, too. We had some company over (my cool aunt and uncle) and without telling them, I started playing tracks from a sound-effects CD that I had ripped. Because I use esd for doing music mixing, I could seamlessly layer sounds on top of each other - and soon they were hearing 2 people having sex in a babbling brook. With a toilet flushing in the distance. I could add sound effects to the conversation as fast as I could scroll the iPAQ! We had a great laugh. I gotta get myself some more sound effects... Anyone know of a good spot on the net, or have any good CDs to recommend? I got my current set from a CD in the bargain bin called "Backgrounds for Telephone Calls and Sound effects for Answering Machines". Well worth the $5 spent in entertainment yesterday...
