...More exposition please, perhaps with links?

 

And if you mean antivirus, I already have ESET, so I should be good.

Geez so demanding...

Anyways a rant on antivirus suites - 

 IMO they are just a overblown suite of firewall/configuration/active monitors/scanners/toolsets and cruft that obfuscates and cuts out the essential part of security - diligence. Secure your connection, encrypt your machine through the tried and true means. Common sense should not be put aside just because one has a one-fits-all-does-everything suite. Have proper permissions in place. Keep track of network activity (Snort, wireshark, nmap, etc). Keep essential files encrypted. KEEP YOUR CONNECTION SECURE (referrer control, always know what you're connecting to) The consumerist sense of "security" that the mainstream touts nowadays takes on a completely different paradigm from what people consider to be security out in the real world. Not to mention if common sense is used, there aren't as many threats out there that they'd like you to think. Honestly something simplistic like a proper firewall in place and some MS Essentials if a windows box is necessary is fine. If everyone is really out to get one's boring old personal desktop they really have nothing better to do then. 

 

Anyways....just use any old Linux Distro, slap it onto a LiveCD and boot it up. Backtrack http://www.backtrack-linux.org/, or just a snapshot of any system with ClamAV on is fine. I would personally use Backtrack as I could use it for other purposes as well. Or SUSEStudio, since modules.

Hey, thanks. 

Just went for the second ride of the year today.  Was 27F out and we are supposed to get snow Sunday.  I ride year round as long as I get get to the street and there is'nt too much ice in the road.  Coldest ride I have had was -13F, should have taken the sled(snowmobile) instead.

here here...and dont click on links in emails or open files you are not expecting.  A little bit of paranoia is good when it comes to links and attachments...and especially pop ups, i hate that wehn that happens...I have had to fix too many co-workers machines due to inattentiveness when pop ups come up on their computer and they think is okay to click on them...

Do people still do that nowadays? I remember it being rampant in the early parts of this decade (can't say I'm not guilty of it) but by now it's really more of an urban myth than not, right? 

For that matter do people still send malware links nowadays?

But honestly people, that goes beyond common sense. Common sense is checking the URL validity and cookies and scripts and referrers. Anyone that clicks on an unknown link/attachment in this day and age should really rethink their place on the evolutionary ladder.

Good is hard to quantify. Preference in terms of sound (sound signature), comfort, isolation (if used portably), etc?

 

Also the question itself...this is head-fi of course we'd know a pair of good headphones :P

Creative Aurvana Live or Shure SRH440 or Grado SR80i are the usual suspects, but it depends on what kind of sound signature you like and what music genres you'll be listening to with them.

As an audiophile-in-training, I'm not exactly sure what I would prefer. What are some of the things that you prefer when looking for headphones?

I'll look into those. The genres that I listen to is mainly classic rock, indie, jpop, and vocaloid stuff.

Bass quantity/quality, midrange quantity/quality, etc. Just emphasis on the frequency range (or lack thereof) that I might happen to prefer. However you would want the sound to be presented. Technical performance like soundstaging (how large the uhm...stage size is), imaging/positioning (how accurately they position each aspect of the sound relative to the recording), transient speeds (how they keep up with note pacing), note presentation/decay (how long the notes last for), etc.

 

As an example, would personally would go for something linear, tight impact, fast, extreme clarity and transparent, smooth but acceptably emphasized treble.

 

Closed-back or open-backed is another issue. Would also be useful to point out how you'd use them (at home, on-the-go). 

 

Anyways, the CALs! Mice mentioned would be a fine starting block point (wtf's a block).

Okay, well that's all I can help you with. >_<

I'm not good at recommending < $300 headphones since my first 'hifi' headphone was $300 MSRP. I'm going to give a random shot in the dark and say the SRH440 might be a better choice for you of the 3 listed. *or not as Twin already mentioned*

SRH440 is more tank-like in build quality though compared to the Creative Aurvana Live.
