Speaking of that, did you know that there were computers in the Graden
of Eden? Yep - Eve had an Apple in one hand and a Wang in the other.
(That joke won't mean anything to the younger crowd, but the older
people here will get it.)

I thought you said Apple makes "excellent software". Quicktime is not
excellent software. I rank it just one notch above Real Networks junk. And I
thought the internet standard for video would be MPEG.
Most of the media content I've seen is either Real or WMA. I don't have
Quicktime on my PC and it's been years since I've hit a site that requires
it. I think you're mistaken about it being "*the* Internet standard"
Nero has a great editor with it too. I've been digitizing many of my old
1960's and 1970's LP records and "45's". The click/pop and noise filters
Nero has does a very good job at "restoring" the quality of the music. It's
not 100% digital quality, but good enough. Some come close. It sure beats
99 cents a pop to buy all that music again!
While this is O/T, speaking of digitizing LP's James, you reminded me of a
great piece of hardware/software I bought from ADS Tech, called DVD Express
which enables conversion of your old VHS videos to DVD format. It's amazing!
I've converted all the kids' graduation videos and other family videos to
DVD. If you don't already have it or something similar, you may want to
check it out at:
Great thanks StingRay! I have already transferred most of the VHS home
movies I had to DVD's a while back using a self-contained JVC dubbing unit
to make the DVD "masters". I then using NERO to burn DVD copies of those
masters to give to each of the kids...but those wee just straight copies,
I then did some experimenting with doing compilations for the fun of it. It
sure did suck up a fair amount of the 120GB disk drive I had upgraded to
though, that's for sure! I had about 106GB "free" after I had "ghosted" a
image of my old 20GB drive to it and did the swap. After playing a few days
with DVD compilations, I was down to about 50GB free. <whew!>
now if you were a hacker would you hack the system where few will get
affected or the one where many will be affected. only reason Mac/UNIX are
considered safer is because so few (comparatively) people use them.
