    Hey old friends/computer geeks. heh remember me? Its been about a year since I touched a computer or done anything "geeky".

    I'm gonna try to get back into computers but I've lost EVERYTHING that I once knew (wasn't much) but you know...

    GOnna try though........just lettin you guys know. :(

    gonna read some of my old threads and hit it up on the tweaktown website and read some reviews. I rememember the last few things I was doing was I was gonna try out linux and I was getting into C++. I doubt if I can even install a hard drive now!

    lol guys I didn't actually go WITHOUT a computer. I ment...

    I haven't "touched" it as in well you know "touched" it.. You know played with its insides? Or tweaked the software? Fixed something that wasn't broken just ot make it better? You know the deal.

    I used to have my computer always tip top shape and now its running HORRIBLE! I'm constnatly getting all sorta of banner ads and my PC is just like any other joe smith's (no offense to a joe smith) computer.

    I just recently got into having two jobs and still going to HS (senior year) that and I recently picked up body building and nutrition so between all that I haven't had time dedicated to being a "geek" .

    Its now thanks giving I"m gonna spend hours on end (like I used to) reading up on reviews and stuff at various websites being an active poster of the tweaktown forums. And FORMATTING MY COMPUTER! I used to format every 4-6 months to keep everything running efficiently haven't done that since last november!

    By the way....what happened to my post count?? lol jk...just showing you how long I've been gone for..

    Heheh you kind of sound like me. I think the all-out computer geek stage was a faze, but I am still interested and mess with computers. Now I lift weights usually mon, wed, fri, and run 4 miles usually on tues, and thurs. Too much computer definetly isn't good, and it took me a while to realize it. I gotta get ready for wrestling season this year, and whoop some ASS! I kind of realised that although the computer is fun there are better things to do like drink booze, and smoke weed :D Happy thanksgiving to all! And welcome back dude!

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.
