USB Flash Drive Life Varies Up To 10 Times

Murphy Murph Re:Flash MP3 player (192 comments)

As a MP3 player the Cowon A3's audio quality blows the iPOD right out of the water

Do you have objective numbers to back up that claim, like perhaps some RMAA tests? Or are you acting no better than the subjectivist audiophools who spend thousands on power cables?

Columbus

Murphy Murph Murphy Murph writes  |  more than 9 years ago

I am going to start adding every Slashdot user who is a Columbus Ohio resident to my friends list.

I just like using the little green ball as an attention grabber when browsing comments.

Driving

Murphy Murph Murphy Murph writes  |  more than 9 years ago

Background info: I'm a land surveyor.

I'm getting tired of driving 200+ miles every work day. I only live 7 miles from my office, but lord knows my project manager can't maintain any relationship long enough to keep us busy with in-town work.

Reasons I shouldn't gripe:
It's not my vehicle.
It's not an uncomfortable vehicle (2004 Silverado 2500HD.)
I'm not paying for fuel.
I get paid while driving.
It's arguably easier to be in the truck 3 hours a day than spend those three hours outside in wet and cold Ohio winters.
I have NPR in the truck.
My boss could be forcing me to stay out of town instead of driving. (But that would require him to plan more than a day ahead.)

BUT the driving sure does wear on me. I take Adderall for my ADD and I STILL want to fall asleep.

Anonymous cowards

Murphy Murph Murphy Murph writes  |  more than 9 years ago

I really hate it when moderators mod down an anonymous coward's post regardless of it's content.

I don't like AC posts, and I ignore them as a rule. Slashdot has a fine tool for me to ignore AC posts with (I just set them as -5) and it seems like such a waste of mod points to mod an AC down unless somebody else has already modded the post up. It's not like you can make the score -2 so you don't see it when browsing at -1.
