Just to give u an idea how full my desk is and the surroundings..my apologies for the mess and the bad quality of piccs (i made them with my ipad 3 biggrin.gif
 

 

You just need to organize a little better ;)  Do you have any storage bins for the stuff on the desk?  My "office"/laboratory was basically a junk room until my wife kicked my ass into chucking 60% of it, and getting some stackable plastic bins (with pull out drawers) that fit in the closet, into which went cables, hard drives, computer parts, et al.  Opened that room right up.  Hell, I even put a plant in there ;)

I've been using Macs for over 6 years. Never once have I used ALAC. It's been exclusively MP3 and FLAC. All you need is Audirvana. Clementine if you want to build a FLAC library. I keep music on external hard drive and then use Audirvana to play off my hard drive. I like it more than Amarra. Really efficient as well. Also it supports cue files and other stuff.

As long as we don't mention the H E - 5 0 0 s (<-- don't want someone to see this post accidentally, if they're searching for the actual cans ;))  it's all good.  One could make the argument that the listening environment is every bit as important as amping them properly.  Of course, were one to make such an argument, they should be prepared for merciless, and well-deserved, ridicule.  Thus, I am not making said argument :D

Maybe the guy who makes Toxic cables can branch out a bit.  Branch out?  This is all becoming a tad woodsy for me.

Well its an useful insect repellent, but the wood is actually quite popular in furniture due to its colour! I would not recommend using Tamboti as firewood though, it will leave you nauseous and in some cases worse than that. Its sap can be used to stone fish.. :veryevil:

Extreme makeover? I love that show and how they help people..well..i have to admit..because of my superwoman the rest of house is supertidy..only my, as my wife calls it, pc corner is hectic to say the least.. Rest of house is dust, dirt and moist free and smells good..if it wasnt i couldnt ever do the extreme opengrill mod i had on my he500 biggrin.gif

Damn..that insect repellent reason is perfect..as in the summer we get almost eaten alive by bloodsucking musquitos.. On some nights i kill at least 25 with my insect killing electrical powered (upgraded!) yellow tennis racket. biggrin.gif Its one heck of a game i play then..i smash around like crazy..hehehe

Here's an interesting use.  I can imagine cups with that.
