Not quite, the look is "cross-processed" rather than any specific film stock's look.

One-of-a-kind, and can be "upgraded" a number of ways. Like playing an RPG. Only with earphones.

 

I really want to see these go to a diary regular....

 

haha... Thanks for the shout-out; I decided to abandon the project simply because it got too annoying waiting for the company I was working with to get their act together. I also need to pay for a lot of stuff outside of audio. I really hope whoever takes it in the end does something interesting with it though; I'd totally be willing to teach them the ins and outs of making something unique...

A convinience store near me sells these Dorayaki fish things

I stuffed my freezer full of them.

 

Today all I've had to eat is black coffee and ice-cream stuffed fish.  I think I should keep my breakfast and lunch based on these fish, and eat Sichuan, Thai, Jap or Italian for dinner, lifestyle of champions!  (I weigh 69kg)

 

I quit smoking (once more) and feel perfectly fine. 

 

...

 

This is how my portable audio looks right now ...

 

1000

 

Except I want to replace the Teclast X19+ with something else, I bought a SanDisk Clip+ (black) last night and 64 card, except I don't think I'll feel satisfied with the Clip+ sound quality.

 

Sony A, S or F series series come to mind.  Anyone have an idea what else I can use here?, the width has to be less than 56mm. ~ ~ ~

 

 

Inside the amplifier I'm using LT1363 which is my new favorite IC, I love it to death.

Congrats on quitting...again. Ice-cream stuffed fish has me intrigued just after midnight on the coast. Lots of protein?

post #3065 of 21409

Thanks!  It's not easy to quit, it feels like something is 'missing' in your blood, a little, and my resting pulse has gone up, which felt weird...

 

 

The dietary value table (in Vietnamise for some reason) says...

 

Kcal 190

Dudng Carbohyrate 33

Chat beo 6

I said she looks analog, not the film hehe.

  Since Coq de Combat is skilled in IT perhaps he can set up a mIRC server for us, haha.

Actually, I have only two given names/forenames (is any of them more correct than the other?) - Ville Valtteri which would be the finnish counterparts of Vilhelm and Walter. I've also contemplated, since I changed my last name (again, what to use?), to change my first name to Vilhelm. I think it sounds more classic in some way.

English is weird. That's what makes it fun.

And Kiteki, I played Shadowrun on my SNES and you wake up with a bomb in your head and it really scared me because it was the first time I've ever played a game where the impending doom is tied to something happening in real time so yeah lets not play that pretty please?!.

Thank you my friend!

What's your guys' thoughts on how some of the sponsor posters here who come in and answer questions and frankly, advertise their product?

On one hand, I am incredibly wary of shills and promoters. In this audio world there is enough false information even by those with good intentions. I don't really like to have to deal with even more of that.

On the other hand, sometimes they can be really informative and it does make me like the product more a little if there's a person behind the design. Or maybe that's just marketing at work...

On the other hand I think I definitely don't like those people who say "they know a designer" and they act like a middleman. Those guys are annoying.

...oh you're Finnish.  Hmm, by the way, back in the early 2000's did you use lunarstorm?, and if yes, what was your username there? =P

The best place for information on a product is straight from the horses mouth.

Born in österbotten in Finland, but I'm pretty much Swedish now. Have lived here close to 30 years now, and I changed my citizenship after my army duty.

 

LOL, in fact I did. IIRC it was Blauarsch or apop... Also, I used those nicknames on dalnet, efnet and qnet. I was systemerror on helgon, if you ever had that.

I moved to Indonesia around 5 months ago in case you missed that.

I wonder what shadowrun music (chiptune, glitch etc.) sounds like on FXD80's. =D

The most suspenseful and scary game I ever played was on the NES, then I got older and videogames weren't scary anymore. =(

Edit:  I didn't know the story was you wake up with a bomb in your head lol.

 

I see and know all! Actually, you told me you were going to Indonesia that time we met haha. But yes I knew. How's that big change up going for you?

Actually, the game really was quite scary because it was dark and gritty (despite being like, what, 10 pixels?) and had the same effect on me that Akira did when I was young.

Yup, I think I'm no longer in any of their databases. That SystemError is not me, but someone who took my old nickname. But I do however know Systemfel! We started chatting about our nicknames.. I wonder if he remembers me. LOL

 

This was years ago. I unregistered myself from helgon somewhere in 2007 or so I think. Then I re-registered myself under the nickname Idiopatique. Which I, of course, later unregistered. Helgon always was an on/off place for me.

Welp, started another review thread thingy. Trying to keep things short this time around after the whole EX1000 vs XBA-4 thread turned into a dying star and sucked out all my words.
