1. I’m in the final stages of ripping my CD collection, after which I’m going to sell the entire lot at work. All that music adds up to about 150 gigs when compressed to 224kps mp3. The new external hard drive sitting atop my pc will hold all that plus more. Gone will be the […]
I’m in the middle of another one of those hell weeks. This is that kind of week where I work Saturday and Sunday at Amoeba, then Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday from ten in the morning till 11:30 at night. I have Thursday off because I’ve got to go see the doctor about the high hemoglobin levels […]
