Talking 276 albums!

I finally got around to ripping most of my CD collection to my Zune. I decided to go after it hard core on Saturday and Sunday instead of a little at a time and finish the job. With a moderate amount of compression I added, IMO, a stupid amount of music and still have about 15gigs free. I shouldn't have bothered to compress it at all as I'm sure the next generation Zune or = will have 100+gigs and it will sound better. (Note to self, back up the hard drive tonight.)

I just can't get over how far technology has gone since I was a kid. I still remember 45s and mono record players. I was at my parents last night to help out and my dad just looked at the Zune like it was magic. His idea of high tech is a cheap cell phone. They still don't have a computer in the house even though I've offered to put one in several times. I'm just wondering how much the world will change for my 7 year old and how out of touch I'll be when she is 50. Frack, what am I talking about. I severely doubt I'll be here when she is 50.

Anyway, I'm feeling good about almost unlimited music to go.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Not a bad collection!

I've got 424 in iTunes, about 5226 tracks. Sad thing is I don't listen to 3/4 of it.

That's 'cause you ain't got no taste.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

Sick. I thought i was cool with 2k in tunes.

I ripped the CD's onto my Zune over the weekend also (weird) and i've only put about 7 pages (4 discs each f/b) since my craptop sucks. Still got another 16 pages.

You are like #1 son. He had just under 6000 tracks, plus pictures, plus videos in his 50gig Zune when he ran out of room. He now has the new 80gig Zune.

I used to be a little bit of an audiophile or at least a vacuum tube cork sniffer. I'd track down Japanese or Canadian pressings of all my favorites, 24k remasters and all that. I've got over 1400 CDs in my collection, and I don't think I've bought a new CD in about 5 years...no wait, I bought one CD for a friends band once. So yeah, 1 CD in 5 years.

I got the new 80GB 2nd Gen Zune for X-Mass. While I typically HATE the sound of MP3s, I really enjoy the Zune. PodCasts and Discographies and I have about 8GB left.

I screwed up a setting somewhere though so after I listen to or watch something, the next I sync with the computer it removes the previously viewed/listened to stuff from the Zune! I can't find where to shut that off!

Some IT guy I am.

Thats actually a good idea. I just created a smart playlist in iTunes that'll sync 40 tracks thats never been played and update as I listen.

Man, that is something like 236+ days of non-stop 24/7 music! It is around 7,000 albums. How the heck did you accumulate that much music? I take it, it isn't ripped from CDs.
