Your Old CD Collection Is Dying

jaymz666 rip them (329 comments)

Two years ago I ripped (to FLAC) about 1000 CDs my wife and I had collected since the early 90s.
The only ones that wouldn't rip were the ones that had deep scratches on them. We still have the CDs in our posession and still buy new ones and rip them to FLAC when they come into the house.

Seems like a sound plan, they are backed up and uploaded to Google Music, too, so we can listen to them anywhere

jaymz666 Re:seems like a back door (566 comments)

Your job may have no workers available, sure

But OS and middleware administrators, coders, there are plenty of in the USA. The salaries are depressed for local workers because of the plethora of H1B imports

To getting two H1Bs for the price of one!

These are already being abused by tech companies to force lower wages on those already legally in the USA, be they citizens or resident aliens, this will make it worse.

If you factor in contractors then you need to factor in all the extra benefits of salaried workers. Such as 401k matches, medical insurance premiums, the other half of social security, etc.

Can a court order you to delete a facebook account?

jaymz666 jaymz666 writes  |  about 2 years ago

jaymz666 (34050) writes "Can a court really order you to delete a Facebook account?
When Asher initially appeared in court after the July 20 accident, the judge told her to delete her Facebook account, Kittinger said. Asher did not take it seriously, and was charged with contempt of court when the judge learned her Facebook page was still active.

Seems like a big over reach."
