Re: Welcome Monchavo

Yes. There's 1/4 bottle in my freezer right now. I thought of you as it was presented to me by an ex girlfriend. We drank it and smoked a Siglo VI over the course of a long and very boozy night. Since then I have returned to it. Do you want to hear my thoughts?

Re: Stolen Items From Baggage

A lot of baggage coming in from Cape Town, Johannesburg and Jakarta to LHR comes in wrapped in several layers of clingfilm. I noticed a luggage carousel last week with someting I thought that was unusual - every single bag was clingfilmed - is the carrier doing it, or is it standard practice at chec...

Re: Welcome Monchavo

Last time I wrote about wine and criticised the poor standard of Australian table wine for sale the UK I was roundly drubbed by a partisan crowd. I'll save my musings on wine for a different forum.

Re: "Gay" or "Not Gay"?

Gerry, Gerry. Do your research. Hitachi and Sony fell out over a number of reasons - they talked for a LONG time. No talking took place around the time of VHS and Beta - DVD was a result of Sony not having a good enough technology at the time to be able to put up a good credible alternative. They d...

Re: "Gay" or "Not Gay"?

f*** lossy compression. I am talking about the iPod as a source for lossless, uncompressed music. .WAV - I made that clear. Defaults? Again - a complete side issue. I'm complaining because you're trashing a product on groundless gripes. If you wanted to gripe about the iPod's closed API, unreplaceab...

Re: "Gay" or "Not Gay"?

Re: "Gay" or "Not Gay"?

jcamp, To put it politely; you're talking out of your arse. The executive summary: You would be hard pressed to distinguish a quality difference between a file played back on a midrange standalone CD player with good interconnects from an iPod with a ripped CD quality 16 bit .Wav (41,000kHz) connect...
