I don't know what it is like in the USA but I increasingly see people wearing animal onesies for fun in public in Sydney now. I think Sydney is transitioning to a onesie / frozen yogurt based economy.

Man you and your strange Yahoo auctions. Do you want my Westone ADV? I'm going to return it since I just finished my review.

Here is the grainy iPhone photo of my outfit for the day for all those who demanded pics. It did happen.




Onesies are surprisingly warm and practical <3

Lol. Incoming Lachy likes a thing?

I didn't like my onesie. It left pink fluff everywhere. D:

What's a onesie? I really need to get out more tongue.gif I just tried Froyo like a month ago......

How much is the ADV?  Nevermind, reading your review, it really isn't my thing biggrin.gif Anyways Yahoo Auctions is addicting. Especially the fact that it  hasn't harmed my wallet yet tongue_smile.gif

I have to be honest, and I hope I don't offend anyone - I would be careful with "programming" as a career choice. The vast bulk of software development is done outside of the USA & Europe - mostly in India, China & the countries of the former Soviet Union. There is also a recent rise in "near-shore" (near to the USA) development in Central & South America (eg Costa Rica). I talk to tier 1 & 2 IT consulting houses and enterprise software vendors every week - and ALL of them are using off-shore or near-shore resources for their SW development. Sure, there is still plenty of SW being written in the US & Europe, but I think you will find that SW developed in the West is either at smaller, younger shops that have not yet become large enough to use off-shore resources (and are therefore riskier bets) or the SW is not product related - it tends to be written by engineers or other specialists and is used as just one tool to solve a larger problem. In those cases, the company is not hiring a "programmer" or "software developer", they are hiring an engineer or system analyst that also knows how to write some software. Of course, I'm over-generalizing - but this is what I generally see.

I often tell my younger employees: Don't tie yourself to a technology, or a specific company's products or a specific software language. Only do that if you are willing to be a consultant that travels wherever expertise in that specific technology is needed - and then you better hope that your chosen technology never becomes obsolete. I think it is much better to be on the functional side of the game than the technical. If you understand how the money flows through the ERP system, or how the many moving parts in a complex supply chain come together, or how to optimize the throughput of a robotic assembly system with minimum errors - then regardless of what specific brand, system or language is used - you will be useful to the company - and in fact, you will likely be involved in determining what new technology will best meet the company's needs. On the other hand, if you are a specialist in programming a specific robotic controller - then if the company switches to a different controller that uses a completely different methodology, then you have to hope that the company doesn't just dump you and hire a specialist in the new system - (hint, which one do you think a corporation concerned with maximum efficiency at lowest cost will do?) The guy who makes the money is not the guy that has a hammer - it is the guy that knows where to tell the guy with the hammer to make the hit to get the company running!

Sorry - I'm slipping (again) into mentor mode - I bore my employees all the time with this stuff... redface.gif I wish more universities talked about these things - but unless the instructor has actually spent many years in industry, they simply don't have the experience to pass on to their students.

Thanks for more advice. As a side, I hope you don't mind I shared a few of your words with my friends on Facebook.

Agreed. For what it is, it's a damn good phone still but somehow hard to describe what's to like about it. It feels hollistically pleasing.
In the process of processing your ADV review, a_rec, since I'm interested in it. I'll tell you later if I'm still interested in it. Hoping it's more subbass thumper than midbass, but judging from all the proposed usage scenario, it'll be more likely the latter than the former bass.

Gummed up mids is a no go.

Really should get my hands on the FXD80 Z though.

So after having been with a mechanical keyboard at work for about... 8 months?... I took the opportunity to buy one for myself at home as well. I can't imagine *ever* going back to anything else but mechanical ones. I bought the Corsair K70 one with red backlights because it fits well with my red desk.

Once I get them trust me when I say the thread probably won't be able to shut me up for the next week, especially if I really like them etysmile.giftongue.gif

Thanks bro. The typing experience is, simply put, outstanding.

Breaking news, it takes a heck of a lot of doing but Westone Star Tips can be used on the Flat-4's.

Early findings:

 

  • I'm shocked the rubber center bores on the tips didn't tear when I was finally able to force them to stretch around the IEM's nozzle.
  • Seal seems to be good and comfort seems to be very good.
  • Insertion, the SUI's seem to stick out of my ears more and at a 90 degree angle. Think along the lines of the neck bolts on Frankenstein's monster.
  • Sound, seems to be on par, maybe slightly better, in comparison to the dual flange tips I was using. I originally was using a Meelectronics triple flange tip that I modded by snipping the top flange off.
  • Soundstage might be a tiny smidgen compressed, not sure, I need to A/B the other tips I was using to make a decision on that.
  • Sound seems to be far better when compared to using Comply or tri flange tips. With Comply's the soundstage seems to be noticeably compressed an mids take a hit. With tri flanges soundstage is compressed a lot and everything sounds like crap
  • Lower treble/upper mids seems to be unaffected and I'm still getting sibilance from bad recordings. On some music it can still get pretty bad.
  • Still lots of air between instruments
