Years Riding: Longer than most of you have been alive. And I'm still slow.
How you found us: The voices in my head told me to come here
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.
