    TV: digital cable or satellite?

    I have DirecTV. About 5 years ago I had the opportunity to go satellite and I took it. I have never had any regrets. Our local cable company was really bad back then. We did miss the local stations. Now we can get them for an extra cost. I've had far less problems with DirecTV than I ever had...

    So, Where Do You Hang out the Most on the Forum?

    I have never tried the view new posts function. I usually start out at the lounge. I spend most my my time there. I will check out the sub forums and the music forum. I need to spend more time in the amplification forum.

    HDCD list

    Just got the ZZ Top - Eliminator Collectors Edition CD/DVD. There is no mention of HDCD anywhere in the material, packaging or on the disc. But the CD does light up the HDCD light on my Arcam. BTW, the post above about 20 bit files is very interesting. Nice post newsjunkie356! Ho Ho...

    How did you make your home more comfortable?

    I used to have a recliner. It took up too much space and cluttered up the room. Now all I have is a couch loveseat set. They are deep enough to lay on comfortably and have cushy arm rests. Combined with a large strudy coffee table I find this to be much better than a recliner. I throw a pillow...

    Do you own a digital camera that you Love? or hate? I'd like to know

    I have a Canon 20D that I like very well. I had a Nikon Coolpix 8800 that was very good for what it was. When I am able to upgrade again I will go with another Canon. Maybe the 5D or whatever replaces it in the next couple years.

    Just recieved my Bunn My Cafe' Pod Brewer. I need a lawn mower and a new vacuum, but I can't use either of those without a cup of coffee, so I started with the coffee maker.

    Photo-Fi: Do you shoot in RAW or JPEG?

    I shoot in both. My Canon 20D has the option of both. Every photo is taken in both RAW and jpeg. I get six photos each time I press the shutter release. Three different exposure levels in both RAW and jpeg. In preview on my computer jpeg loads faster so I can go through all my photos...

    Match and Normalize functions.

    I use mpTrim. It doesn't seem to degrade my mp3s. I have the free version and my only complaint is that it won't work on longer songs (I think 6 minutes is the max length). I will have to purchase the program to do longer songs and batch processing.

    coffee online

    I have purchased coffee from ravensbrew several times. I always had a good experience with them. If I still had my French press and a grinder I would order from them now. Having neither of those items, I just buy Costa Rican Peaberry from and make one cup at a time.

    Your thoughts on 100% Non-Smoking Hotels?....

    I stay at a 100% non smoking hotel every other day. It has been that way since they built it. It's nice in that the rooms don't stink, but I find it a pain to have to go down from the third floor to the outdoors to smoke. I very seldom get a room on the first floor because those are held for the...
