Well got all the extra bits stripped off the computer. Cleaned the CPU heatsink and added the 5450. Started it up installed ubuntu and everything is running smooth. Netflix runs with chrome installed and plays smoothly. I think Im going to try and find some more DDR2 ram as I only have 1.5GB in this right now.
On the way home last night I spotted a computer sitting on the curb and picked it up. It's an older HP but seems to function fine. The HDD may be going out as it is rather loud. I have been wanting to build a HTPC / home server for a while now. I think this may provide a good base but could use some input. About 90% Netflix / Hulu / ABC / NBC / ect. I have a few .mkv movies also. File server is just for central storage outright speed isn't that important. (Yes its...
What speed are your cards? Can't go faster than what they are capable of.What are your current speeds?What connections do you have available? USB2, USB3, FireWire, ect. ?
You are correct on stain, its a liquid applied to color the wood.Veneer is a very thin slice (think paper thin) of a wood that is glued to the surface of whatever you are making. Generally veneers are used to cover the end grain of a plywood which already has the face veneered. This continues the veneer to all sides and hides the underlying plywood. Or to cover the surface of the work piece with a more beautiful/exotic lumber which would be otherwise cost prohibitive. ...
My opinion on UV filters is not to use them, don't add another layer of glass to the equation, unless you know you will be in a sandy or otherwise dusty environment and the font element of your lens moves in the barrel or for other reasons could use some additional sealing.As for protection from bumps I don't think they are the best idea. If the filter breaks it is going to put shards of glass behind the filter (in between your filter and the front element) which you then...
I run a setup like this. My receiver has speaker on/off settings in the setup options. You tell it what speakers are connected and it adjusts accordingly. Check your manual for your receiver and I would assume it has something similar. After that setup is done you will need to change to a surround sound setting (assuming your running two channel now). After that you should get the proper signals to each channel.
My statement about the general public stands true. Most don't spend the money for 'hi-fi' or would even care about the minute differences that are revealed. I know very few people who will sit down and listen to music, actually listen to it.
The point I was trying to make was it was not likely the file format but rather difference in the path from source recording to end user that each file made. Your title states the thread is about file format. I did read your entire post (twice actually) before responding. However, people focus to much on file format and not enough on the path from instrument to final delivered file.As I said in my first post, convert the flac to the same file format and quality of the...
You are looking at two different source files here. Therefore the FLAC vs. XXX is irrelevant. Take you FLAC file and convert to the 'lossy' codec of your choice and take another listen. I bet you won't hear a difference if the quality is kept above a certain threshold. The mastering or "remastering/optimizing for itunes" (whatever they call it) is likely the difference you are hearing. These days a lot of music is messed with prior to providing it to the end user. ...
Whats your ambient temperature? What is your vcore at load and idle? I have ambients between 70-80F and get similar values for idle and load temperatures.
