Re: Killed by lighting?
"Yes I can tell the difference, depending on what it's connected to."
Me too, but I really can't tell the difference when travelling at speed on Her Majesty's carriageways, despite a posh Bose system...although I expect the V6 engine doesn't help.
Colour me odd, but a CD rip to FLAC to the music server and then a script / batch job / Foobar to convert to MP3 on a handful of USB sticks for the car. That's worked for me for nearly a decade ... and not an Apple in sight, apart from braeburns.
Oh, and I can legally leave the original CDs to the kids in my will ...
