    random noises on 1212m

    #1 i'm getting random static on my computer audio, and it's most definitely coming from my sound card. basically, only some of the time for short periods of time, i would get a faint buzzing in the background, which then disappears back to nothing. so far, i found no pattern on why it would...

    If you drink soda, what is your favorite tasting "chill"?

    freezer's the best, although i tend not to leave it in there for too long. if i do, the soda will freeze over and could lose a whole ton of carbonation if opened. icing it won't give it that iced effect, but it sure isn't cold enough for my tastes. i say that anything that comes in a can and...

    suggestion for a cheap pocket knife for...

    wow... that's small. well, since everyone's saying "knives are cool", i'm going to add my $.02 for knives: for $30, CRKT makes a decent bunch, as does Gerber. not only do they function well, they look pretty cool too. or if you're willing to go uh... $100-120 over budget, get the...

    suggestion for a cheap pocket knife for...

    don't forget to look up gerber as well. i got a gerber multitool, and that thing is pretty robust. the blade is useless, though, as are any blades in any multitool. the scissors portion is stiff and does an extremely good job of cutting pretty much anything. and the squirt is essentially the...

    who spent less than 20 bucks after joining head-fi and why?????

    if i all of a sudden make a new screen name and start posting, would that count as spending less than $20 after joining? I'm not sure what the total running tally is for me at all, especially since i've sold a lot of things and have made some modifications to my equipment. for example, i...

    Safe listening level

    well, you could be super obsessive about it like i am and get an SPL meter from your local radio shack. otherwise, you can do a simple trick to keep at safe listening levels (assuming your environment is relatively quiet). turn your cans/speakers all the way down. then turn them up until you can...
