Take Away Show _ BOMBA ESTEREO
Vimeo doesn’t embed worth a crap in wordpress.com. :/
A music video that’s just people in a beautiful place with their instruments. I don’t understand a word of it, but I don’t think I need to.
A Signet for Markdown
Nice work for fans of Markdown technology which never had a super nice graphic symbolizing it:
In many ways, I wish Markdown was the standard in WordPress. WYSIWYG gets a little tiresome sometimes.
Why 24-bit/192kHz Music is a Waste of Bandwidth
Unless you’re considering sending ultrasonic “death noise” to your recipient… and even then, there’s no guarantee their audio will be able to output it correctly.
Why can’t you buy a heterodyne/parametric array desktop audio system?
This isn’t for your music—this is just for daily communication. Just think of how awesome it will be for video bloggers to be able NOT wear headphones and look like doofuses on Skype. This seems like a massive, untapped market for http://www.holosonics.com.
Bring back payphones with this technology and you’ll never have to touch an unsanitized handset ever again or worry about a missing handset.
I mean, really, kiosk “areas” for advertising your bananas in supermarkets is a really, asinine application of this technology. The only place I’ve ever seen this in the appropriate wild was a public library in Ogden, UT at a public-information station. But add a microphone to the mix and you’ve gotten away from mere pico-broadcasting and made something better.
For you Advogatians who are older, find an estate lawyer and financial planner to help you protect your assets-- because whatever you leave behind without instructions (aka will) will be administered by the State in ways you may not have liked. It isn't expensive to do this, and your family will greatly appreciate not having to grieve and juggle your finances at roughly the same time.
For you Advogatians who are younger, I realize that its somewhat morbid to ask your parents or grandparents about these things and might be uncomfortable doing so but you and your family should consider doing this at least every year because things change-- people die, friendships fade, relations change. And yes, you too also need to find a financial planner to help you protect and grow your assets into the future and as a benefit, doing is sooner rather than later will help you enjoy a better "retirement."
My worst day was last Tuesday, but I still think about him and I have four new reminders of him living in my house now, Mikey, Binkey, Fluffy and Precious; three tuxedo cats and a calico-tabby all with four distinct personalities. The arrangement is temporary as I think they'll eventually move back in with my mother. Otherwise, it has been non-stop phone calls and other reminders about him that have been pretty hard.
Pondering Subversion The ebuild in Gentoo requires neon 0.19.2 but Gentoo provides neon 0.21.3. I don't know how much time I'll spend hammering on it and give up and go with CVS, again. For those who haven't heard much about Subversion, there is a draft book at http://svnbook.red-bean.com/book.pdf. [...] Bummer, the ebuild fails. I've spent enough time on it for today.
New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
