  1. Thanks, Oriel. Sounds like a real problem. Any suggestions on transformers or possible solutions? He's paranoid about frying his Mac and other electronics....and I don't know enough about transformers to help him.
  2. I've got a family member getting ready to spend a year or two in Seoul. He's been advised to pick up a couple of converters in the US before he leaves. Seems a couple of his colleagues picked up a unit or two that were of suspect quality which led to some equipment damage. Anyone here have some top flight units they'd recommend? I'll confess to knowing nothing about the converters, what's out there or what's good. Thanks in advance. Hope things are well with the Head Case gang!
  3. Code or no code, I still prefer 8" rise. My house my choice. Call me a rebel. n_maher...the comment about hygienist....are you in dentistry?
  4. swt is spot on although I prefer an 8" rise. I also add a horizontal support to the picture above....then again, I tend to go overboard with most projects.
  5. Forget Linksys. Grab an Airport Extreme or Express. Much better to work with. Had both and there's no comparison. Btw, tkam is correct. When you restart/reset your network, you need to power the modem up before the router. Also, be aware of your configuration as to which of the units is assigning the IP. Is your router going to fill that role or are you going to let it act as a bridge? Just something to think about.
  6. Like lostonetr I've also had a time or two where I regretted the purchase of Logitech gear. I have been wondering how I could put my extra SB3 to good use and a bedroom rig or perhaps a small setup in the living area next to the kitchen would seemed likely, but dac, amp, speakers, headphones, etc. Nothing seemed 'right'. If this plays out well, it might solve the problem. Then again maybe something like the AudioEngine line with the SB3 is a better option. Likely similar money involved. Interesting.
  7. Well, the Mac wouldn't be the only use. I'm still interested in putting a little nightstand rig together using the Squeezebox so the Duet won't be in the mix.
  8. I do wish I could be convinced a portable amp(even with the onboard dac) was anything more than an extravagant toy. It would be great to think I could get a Pico in MacBook Pro silver and have it serve as my office setup. I know I won't use it with my iPod/E500. Never have felt amping IEMs gave enough improvement to justify the cost and headache of carrying a portable amp. Still, this Pico intrigues me.
  9. Got up....had a thermos of coffee....worked my ass off...then gave Uncle Sam his share after paying 70% overhead. Life sucks sometimes.
  10. Personally, I use the Transporter/Squeezebox to play FLAC on a network, external HD when I'm listening to my speakers. The MBP holds AAC @224 for the ipod. Of course, I can also play my iTunes AAC through the PS3 if I wanted the convenience of using the iTunes interface. So far the PS3 won't support FLAC, but I'm hopeful that's coming. Conversion of FLAC to AAC is with Max. Used Toast for a time, but the PS3 just wouldn't play the Toast version so I went with Max and it's been smooth sailing since.

  12. One of those elongated bowls with that super duper power flush mechanism? Love those things. Have yet to stop one up.
  13. Beautiful day here so I had some coffee on the deck then went down and spent the day on the jetskis and boat. Came back up and grilled some steaks. All in all a good day.
  14. Not english...not pig latin....maybe wiki will help translate.
