    Calling all New Yorkers - good resource for (indie) concert listings in NY?

    Hey all, I'm going to be staying in New York for 2 or 3 weeks in December, and am excited to check out the music scene when I'm there. Where can I find a comprehensive listing of all the NY concerts? Ticketmaster and LiveNation are pretty much just the big shows, which don't really interest...

    Question: A watch with fixed hands and rotating faces?

    Hey fellow Head-Fiers, I'm looking for a specific watch and so naturally, I came to the all-knowledgeable Head-Fi for answers. I saw this one at the Vancouver Art Gallery a couple years ago, never bought it, and have regretted it since. Here is my description of what it looked like: The...

    Looking for a computer desk similar to this.

    I'm in the market for a computer desk, and these Jerker desks from Ikea look quite nice: minimalist, clean design, open design on the bottom, solid feel, enough space for everything. The only thing I don't like is that it is actually *too* big for me, especially in depth. I want something...

    Any good world map desktop wallpapers?

    So I admit it: I am terrible with geography. I figure the easiest way to fix this is by having a world map for a desktop background. I searched Google and can only find a couple decent political world maps that suits my resolution (1680 x 1050) or over, and when i set them as wallpaper, they are...

    Are there any P2P Sharing programs without spyware?

    Okay, so here's my story. I had been using Kazaa Lite for a while now and ever since I started using it, spyware would start appearing on my computer and I would get pop-ups like crazy, and this eventually led to my whole hard drive needing to be re-formatted. Now I know that the general...

    Email accounts - What do you recommend?

    So I've had my hotmail account for about 2 years now, and I'm starting to wish that there was more storage space than a measly 2 mb. What do you guys use for email, and how much storage space do you get? By the way, I don't want to spend any money for extra storage, I just wanted to know what...

    Matthew Good - 'Weapon'

    I don't know how many USA residents have heard of Matthew Good, but he's very well known in Canada and Germany. It really amazes me that there aren't many Americans who have heard his music. Anyways he's by far the most exciting and interesting musician that I've heard in my life, and I want to...

    ??? Room for Squares ???

    Just picked up John Mayer - 'Room for Squares' the other day on a recommendation from my friend who also is a big fan of Dave Matthews Band, and he said they sound somewhat similar. I'm really enjoying it, and I can see where the comparisons are coming from, but I like the album quite a bit...

    Where to buy the SL-CT570 in Canada...

    Lately all of the new portable CD players seem to be increasingly poor in terms of sound quality, or else too expensive. One of the few options I still have left is the Panasonic SL-CT570. Does anyone know where I might be able to find one of these in Canada?

    Which pcdp is right for me?

    I'm planning on getting a new pcdp within the next half year (so no rush) that I will use with Sony e888's ( I should buy the 888's within a couple months too, hopefully). I don't expect to use an amp with the pcdp, so therefore I would like some decent sound out of the headphone jack with...
