    Transfering Vinyl to Digital, I Need A Deck

    Yeah, it will be in a carpeted basement so it will be pretty stable. Thanks for the advice and the other suggestions. I'll look for those as well.

    Transfering Vinyl to Digital, I Need A Deck

    Hmm. In that case I'm going to try for this Kenwood. Judging from what it has been going for on eBay I've got a fight on my hands. If this falls through, do you guy have any other suggestions. I looked in a suggestion thread that someone posted and I really couldn't find any of the model...

    Transfering Vinyl to Digital, I Need A Deck

    It's been a long time since I've posted here, but I need help. My father has quite a few vinyls that he can't find on CD. He want's me to transfer them over. I was looking at one of those USB decks but I have only found that they are rubbish. So, I'm left with getting a decent deck but I...

    Ferrari Enzo pics

    What camera and lens are you using, very good combo and great shots. Very nice auto show, I wonder where it was, it had a lot of nice cars. Kind of odd to see an SRT-4 and RSX in the mix with the other cars, but they still very nice cars.

    Writing Instruments

    I prefer typing but if I have to use a writing instrument I use either a .5mm mechanical pencil or my favorite pen, the Uni-Ball Vision Elite.

    DSL Speeds

    With my DSL I get 648kbit downstream and 256kbit upstream 160kbits is rather slow for DSL. It could be the fact that you have an old router or firmware, it also might be the fact that your DSL provider doesn't offer higher speeds, or perhaps a combination of the two. The best thing to do would...

    If you're feelin' a bit bummed right now

    I'm not really new here, but I don't post a lot, but I do read a lot of posts and I hope things work out for you Tube. I guess I can somehow relate. When I was 18 I contracted a chronic disease called Chron's Disease. At the time I didn't know what I had and I've always been the type of...

    N64 Experts - Expansion Pack

    The expansion pack should come with a gray plastic tool to remove the old pack, if you don't have that a screw driver or something similar would work. Really all you have to do is take the sticker off the jumper pack, pull it out, put the expansion pack in, and you're done. It is quite simple.

    Pc woes

    There is one I used to use called Trouble Shooter. It is a bootable DOS disk. It is kind of old and I don't know how accurate it is with newer hardware. I'll look around for some newer ones for you. One problem is that I don't know of a program to test the power supply. You can always use a...

    Pc woes

    Just remember that you might have a bad memory controller on the motherboard. Most harware caused reboots can usually be related to the power supply, processor, motherboard, and system memory. So don't rule any of those out. I would test them all.

    I find the view of most vegans to be silly. I have met some that don't eat meat because it simply makes them sick or they don't like meat. That I can perfectly understand, but not eating meat because it wrong to eat meat is plain stupid. Do they think that cows are simply put here as natures...
