I'm just a bit of a neat freak and noticed a few too many pieces of debris on my floor than I'd like. I hand picked most of them but I'm sure there are more buggers I need a vacuum to get.

I am this way, too (NF). And sometimes end up trying my best not to disturb others. But going to bed without addressing things sometimes wouldn't allow me to sleep. A battle soon erupts inside my head: To clean or not to clean?

Seeing my friend's smudgy tablet screen, I rem1embered a dream that there was a maid (in obligatory french maid costume) cleaning all of my electronic trinkets last night. I am now disappointed..

Ardgedee, I've haven't really thought about it before, but recently I have started noticing that there are actually quite a few IT pro companies and firms that still creates their own websites as static web pages as opposed to dynamic web applications of sorts. Is this a (new) trend of going back to basic HTML (with some client side scripting as a maximum) when other technologies aren't needed, or is it just me that have missed this altogether or what's the deal here? I was told, some several moons ago, that (completely) static sites are things of the past and that we are headed towards a more dynamic and a semantic web altogether, even though I couldn't quite understand why more complex technologies would be needed if it's a just a static presentation site. But as was the case with Neo, I swallowed that pill with no apparent afterthought and took it for truth. 

 

Is it a case of using the right tools for the right job, or is there some other outerwordly wizardry going on here that came with the introduction of HTML 5? I'm thinking that since you're in the business, you might actually have an insight on these trends.

 

I haven't conducted any sort of studies on this, just so you know. It's just that whenever I look at some companies websites, quite a few of them are actually just plain HTML with a script. It seems to me as there's no server side applications more than what's obviously needed to host these files.

It's quite possibly because people dislike having to navigate dynamic(flash or html) web pages. The parkerpen website is one such target for hatred for such things. Dynamic is fine, so long as it doesn't get in the way.

True enough. At least for some cases. Whether it's actually easier to navigate static or dynamic web pages is more a question about the implementation rather than the philosophy behind it. Having a dynamic web site shouldn't automatically complicate things for the end user, but a complex site "architecture" (or whatever it's called in engrish) most probably would.

 

I just kind of loosely took as a truth back then some years ago that static web sites was slowly going to turn into server side generated, complex to code, pages even for the smallest things, yet I think it's turning out to be the other way around. Companies that have some sort of a function with the web site more than just showing their products off (logging in, selling stuff, management systems and so on) kind of have to use some sort of server side scripting/coding and a more or less complex backend behind it all, while companies that are just presenting themselves seem to just have a flat site with some eyecandy scripting (I'll count that as still being somewhat static since it doesn't actually change any content).

Went to make some coffee this morning, and sudden I'm thinking about enemas. Thanks, Magick Man!

 

 

The best part of waking up.... is Folgers up the butt.

Sigh. On a side note, a peculiar situation at work has lead me to having to work night time for a few weeks. Basically, I'll come home past bedtime for the rest of the family, and as a direct result, I'll basically be seeing my wife at weekends only since she'll be going to her job before I get up in the morning. Not exactly looking forward to it, but since their idiotic system is built that way, I can't really do any work on the current databases until the rest of the workplace has gone home.

 

Oh, and no, I don't get any kind of extra for doing this. I just get to sacrifice my family time for the job.

 

Fortunately it's just for a few weeks, so I guess there's really no need to complain - however, this is a step towards a direction I'm not entirely happy to take even though I recognize the purpose of taking it.

I don't actually drink Folgers, by the way. It probably is best used for enemas.

Admittedly, if I was forced to take coffee enemas in the morning, I'd probably wake up pretty efficiently.

What makes this amp so unique is that is uses transformers to increase signal voltage rather than tubes and resistors. The designer made two of them. A head-fi buddy of mine is getting the blue acrylic one, whereas I'm getting the metal and wood one.

d'OH! I was just reading ecp audio's capacitor reviews last week. How could I miss that?

Please do let us know how they sound.

If I had the manual dexterity in the morning to safely prepare coffee enemas, I would already be awake enough to not need them.

If the cable being more expensive, heck, or even half the price of the headphone, I don't view that as worth it IMO. But, with that said, I'm still open to hearing things out, just that there's a much better way to change sound than through cables.

I clearly agree that there are far better ways to improve sound. For me, cable upgrades are the last step. They're the 4-5% remaining to a perfect system unless it poses a great nuisance like Hifiman's silver cables which are extemely stiff, very long, very microphonic and tangles more than a terrified child for example. If that's the case then you're free to upgrade it.

Today was quite a nice day, I went to my local Jaben again, tried the brand new harman/kardon CL headphone which I found it quite surprising, better than the Bower and Wilkins P5. Tried the Momentums in which I like but it's a shame that the treble is so shelved down.
I also talked with Nico also known as "TheMiddleSky" in Head-fi who works at Jaben. I asked him
a kind of rethorical question when they were installing those extremely large and thick custom AC cables to the Bakoon amp and the Calyx Femto DAC, it was "what would happen if those cables were plugged in to another electronic devices for example a TV" he said "it'll make the colours much better" then I said "yeah, it'll transform a 1080p monitor to 4K".
I also learned that Mike from Headfonia lives just 5 minutes away from Jaben which is quite interesting. And he will also borrow those Bakoon amps for an upcoming review.

He'll have some of the boards available too, if you ever feel like DIY-ing one.

Gotta work in pairs!
