iTunes idiot needs some help
Thanks for all the info, very much appreciated! I'll experiment and see how it goes, I'd rather do that now than before I end up ripping all my WAV files to the HD. Thanks again folks, Jeff

Hi Hector,I searched the archives here and on the iPod lounge before posting this. I'm sure this can be done...I figure 400 Cd's @ at an average of 600mb each will take up about 240gb of disk space on my hard drives, to shrink the files to fit on ...

Agon Members at CES

CES Rumors
Elgordo,Not to mention the Adult Entertainment Show runs at the same time as CES. Maybe that's where Marco et al bumped into their playmates who ultimately absconded the lads' extremely-broken-in undergarments? 
Are you bored to tears with the topics lately?
How about another thread on "Jaw-dropping power cords"? There's the common-sense theory that if you have some well designed, beefy power supplies then the power cord makes no difference at all. There's the school of thought that sez a power cord i... 
Worst mismatches in equipment: your warnings
