  1. [ubuntu] Re: Rippng CD to MP3 gives abnormally low bitrate

    I think they are being reported incorrectly. I have a buttload of cd that were ripped into a VBR format, and a lot of them will report abnormally low bit rates, but if you listen to the files it's...
  2. Re: Need help rescuing data from laptop HDD

    You can access the windows files you need if you do a live boot via USB/CD. The Ubuntu live cd works fine. You won't have to do anything to make the USB work. Just go into places on the menu after...
  3. Poll: Re: When did you move to Linux as your Primary system

    November of '09. My desktop took a dump, so I was forced to use the laptop for a while. My 10 year old was basically the only person who used it for the past year and a half, so you know it was...

    Poll: Re: Filter-bottle-tap

    I've got a filter hooked up to my fridge at home.
    At work, there's a tap drinking fountain that tastes pretty good if you let it run for a few seconds.
    I definitely prefer the taste of the...
  5. Re: The Office: Who will replace Michael Scott?

    I actually hope they just end it after this season.
    I don't think moving some one else up from within would work. Michael Scott was a horrible boss, Dwight would be just as bad, but he'd probably...

    Poll: Re: How Big is Your Music Collection?

    I have about 50Gb and growing. I don't have any idea how many CDs I have, but I've ripped about 2/3rds of them (All that I listen to regularly). Maybe about 10 albums were digital downloads.

    Re: Know what sucks... Gettings a job.

    It sounds like you were an excellent boss. People like you are easy to work for, and I wish there were more like you. A lot of managers need to remember to treat people like people, and not like a...

    Re: Know what sucks... Gettings a job.

    Although, I'm not the OP, I've been following this thread. I posted earlier that I've been out of work for a year and a half.

    I got a job today!!! I'm so relieved. Not the money I want to start...

    Re: The computer guy, pain or gain?

    Thankfully, all of my friends who always needed help have finally learned to fix their own stuff.
    I have one cousin who will call for help every now and again. Because she doesn't call that often,...
  11. Re: Favorite music player that isn't an iPod?

    I cast a vote for the Sansa lines, like the Fuze & the Clip.
    I have a Fuze, and it works well with Linux. It also has a SDHC card slot, so you can add up to 32GB of memory. RockBox is also...

    [ubuntu] Re: digital and analog audio

    Ahh, I see. I'm still stuck in the 20th century with my equipment, so I don't know much about HDMI. The only tip I can give is to download alsamixer if you don't have it already (available in the...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Ripping CD's with tracks that blend together

    Give RipperX a spin. It is not nearly as geeky as GRIP. Simple to set up.
    The only problem I had with it is that it quit tagging any track after #10 for some reason, and only on one computer. ...

    [ubuntu] Re: Song tagging utility

    See at the end of each field, there is a little selector box there. Click that to ensure that the changes will be made to all of the selected files. Then click on save.
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Ripping CD's with tracks that blend together

    One tip I can give is to make sure you use a ripper that uses LAME. LAME seems to do a better job at gapless ripping. I used RipperX in the past, until it started acting weird, then I switched to...

    [ubuntu] Re: digital and analog audio

    I don't know about the HDMI, but I can help you with the line out sound. That should be pretty easy.

    First you have to buy a 1/4" to RCA plug adaptor. The 1/4" plug end looks like a headphone...

    Re: The "Audacity is brilliant" thread!

    I agree. I use it to digitize vinyl and cassettes so I can put them on Cds or my MP3 player. Audacity works better than a music studio program I purchased a few years ago.

    My favorite part is...

    Re: Why would I Over Clock my Sempron ?

    Why not overclock it? Because it is so "wimpy", it is a perfect chip to try to squeeze every bit out of it you can.
    I say see what it'll take.
