Have you ever used the SR-60s? I'm curious about the i.

No, I haven't. All I know about the differences are what I've read.

i've always loved grados, but never found them very comfortable.  i know they sell different shaped pads and whatnot, but my sony eggos sound awesome and feel like ear muffs, so i've never had much reason try out the other options.

I heard comfort might be a problem, so I went to a bit of effort and fiddled with the head-strap, etc. It's early days, but I've gone through a few 3+ hour sessions without a problem, given that I'm taking care about how I put them on. The design does allow my ears to breathe, though, which is a pleasant change from the closed-back types I've been wearing as a rule.

I taped a podcast over the holiday and got a chance to try out the Grados. I have to say, I was totally sold. I like the in-ear style better for blocking out noise, but I will probably be investing in a pair of these for those times when that's impractical whenever I have money.

The nice thing about Grados is that you can pay what you want and get the appropriate level of quality. A couple years ago I upgraded from the 60s to the 125s.

I'm probably not going to be buying new headphones any time too soon, but just out of curiosity - where/how did you acquire yours, GI?

Over the internet, from Hi-Stands. It's a little under twice the price it would be in the US.

help anyone?

i downloaded a 650MB (ish) .exe file which is supposedly a mod pack for S.T.A.L.K.E.R., that videogame i keep banging on about. when i double click it, all that happens is that the "address" bar in the folder window slowly starts to fill up green (i think this is windows 7's equivalent of the spinning egg timer). it never gets there. i can continue using other programs but that folder just hangs, and then when i kill it via task manager it takes the start menu with it and i have to ctrl+alt+del to restart the machine. right-clicking on the file has a similar effect. i just tried to single left click it and then press delete on my keyboard and the same thing happened for a couple of minutes before a "preparing to recycle" dialog box popped up. it's supposed to have estimated time left etc but just says "calculating" and its progress bar remains empty. the folder icon is flashing green to tell me it's not frozen and i can select other items in the folder and all that, but it's just not deleting.

how do i get this file off my computer?

i'm using windows 7 home premium 64 bit, if that makes a difference to the diagnosis.

Try deleting it from a command-line instead of Explorer, how are your command-line skills?

non-existant. i know how to type "msconfig" in the command bar and that's pretty much it.

the people on the steam forums for the game helped me out - the problem was that microsoft security essentials was trying to unpack and scan the file before letting it do anything, and failing to do so. turning off real time protection allowed me to delete the file without incident.

so i guess your advice probably would have worked had my skills been up to it, because the command probably wouldn't have worried about asking MSE to check anything while it ran.

MS Word finally pissed me off enough that I sorted through its options and turned off spell-checking.  I don't make spelling mistakes, but I was somewhat apprehensive that it would also turn off that auto-typo-fixing-jigger, which is still pretty handy.  It didn't.

I feel like I've cast off the shackles of a thousand-year oppression.

Hey dudes, I downloaded an audiobook that must've been ripped incorrectly, because all of the files have mpg4 extensions, i.e. they're being recognized as video files. iTunes won't touch it. Windows Media Player will open them, but that's it. How do I change the file extensions to .mp3 so I can listen to them on my ipod?

Why not open them in a player that does work and then save them as mp3s?

Yeah, that works in WMP. Any way of doing it as a batch process? I've got 310 files here.

In a fit of boredom, I installed Snow Leopard on my mini. After I un-fucked the DNS settings, it appears to be working, but I haven't actually tried anything yet.

And the one thing I miss about my old apartment was the fact that it was small enough to run a wired network.

Can you post updates as things happen? The bloke bought it, but we've been too scared to install it until we know what it's going to fuck up (he works remotely so can't take too many chances), and he hasn't had time to do all the research yet. Lazyweb strikes again.

Okay, here's the deal:

I have a 2008-vintage cheapo mac mini (1.87 ghz model) that I'm using as my test case and upgrading from Leopard. I did an upgrade install and so far, I haven't lost data or had anything fuck up too incredibly. (Knock on wood.)

Thus far, there have been two issues. Issue #1 is that in the wireless network section, it kept the old DNS settings from the previous install which, despite the fact that they were for the same router, fucked my internet. I deleted the one DNS setting and rebooted and it filled in the blanks after that. There's also a few updates for it already (I think it's up to 10.6.2 by now.)

Issue #2 is a pretty esoteric one, but basically I'm pretty sure Snow Leopard's new HDTV settings have broken 24p output from SwitchResX. Since the mini is a media player, I have it customed to output 24 frame material to the TV as 24 frame so the motion is nice and smooth (like a blu-ray disc), but I'm pretty sure that's broken and I'm stuck at 60 fps again. But that's probably not something that will be a problem for you.

So, overall, it's pretty okay. I have yet to try and run the programs that I'm worried about (Old Ableton, CS2), but everything seems to be working fine otherwise. No big jump in power or anything, but it's not like the mini is that much of a powerhouse to begin with. If Ableton opens fine, I'll probably install it on my work laptop.

Yeah, the TV thing isn't an issue for me at all, so it sounds like it might be a goer. Thanks!

Try it out, back up beforehand if possible.

Does anybody know of any utilities that figure out where all your free space has gone? I have a 128 gig hard drive on my laptop and for some reason, it's filled up to almost the top. I don't keep any work on it, I don't keep any iTunes files or any other media on it, it's really supposed to be email, applications, and OSX only and while I have some big applications (CS2, Final Cut, etc.), 100 gigs worth of applications seems like quite a lot.
