"So, exactly how much pr0n could you view on a Model 30 ? Or did it take that long to generate one ascii image?"
Ha! This was in the days of the stash of a certain type of magazine in a colleague's desk, some of which featured a young lady who used to be a secretary in our department.
I’ve recently cottoned on to the fact that all the “we’re calling about your accident” calls I get are automated, so I have a little fun now. Admittedly you do get some funny looks in the office when you are overheard saying something like “would that be the one involving a cheese grater and my lacerated penis”.
Well, it’s something to do, innit.
People who have better things to spend their money on.
My 32" in our reasonably large living room is plenty large enough, I can see enough detail from my usual viewing location. In fact I find those who have 60" screens on the wall of their tiny Victorian terrace or modern starter home utterly ridiculous and you end up with a cricked neck watching them because they require a viewing angle of nearly 45 degrees.
In fact most people I know don't have anything above about 36".
It doesn't make the programs any less shit either way.
"Where I want a copy for my portable, I get a download. Sadly free, illegal ones mainly (sorry industry, but you don't have the content)"
So, they don't have the content. But you like a song enough to download it but not to pay for it?
You may delight in "sticking it to the man", but you're also sticking it to the artist as well.
I think if that were a problem inherent with USB interfaces that there wouldn't be so many available. Certainly never experienced audio dropout on any I have tried. My overiding impression of audio interfaces over the years is that often the interface type is less relevant than the quality of the drivers. I get a similar level of performance with my Focusrite Saffire 6 USB that I used to achieve with a Terratec Phase 24 Firewire.
Presumably you missed the bit about using an iFrame to automatically make the call, not requiring the user to click on anything. Perhaps your dogs could teach you to read thoroughly?
Certainly it's easy enough to cancel an unwanted call, but the point is that it should not be possible to initiate a call unbidden in the first place.
Sound On Sound ran an article on forensic audio back in January, including ENF:
The clock accuracy in even cheap digital recording devices is way more accurate than would be required to record mains frequency with the precision needed.
