Re: A link that will send PC enthusiasts back to 1999...

This brings back memories. Back then I was dual booting 98 and 2000 on a passively cooled P3. I used to wonder why the big heatsink on the side of the processor cartridge got so much hotter when it was running Win98.

Re: What are you listening to RIGHT NOW?

DVD-Audio is the digital format that puts to rest the old-timers' claim that analog is b...

The Beatles - Love, which I just ripped from DVD-Audio and converted to 5.1ch 96/24 FLAC files. I normally don't listen to 5.1 music, but this is just insane. I can't believe how well mixed this is.
