Top 10 Ways to Upgrade Your Music-Listening Experience
A few things from the article to address: For PC users, Mediamonkey is almost without rival for organizing your files. It tags album art and other metadata straight from Amazon. One click. Even if you prefer to use another player, at least try MM as an organizer. Secondly, the suggestion of a USB DAC is spot-on. Fine - three things: Get some actual speakers. Also, there is no shame in using lossless or lossy.

How to (Legally) Boost Your Music Library Without Spending a Dime Free yes but I don't think that'd constitute legal compared to the methods in the article. There are (arguably) easier ways to go about doing this, and such action is quite dubious legally. I'm not preaching to you, just sayin... It's really no better than pirating music directly. Russia: Envisioning the “Cloud Democracy” Utopia Cloud Democracy [ru] is the title of the new book written by Leonid Volkov [ru] and Fyodor Krasheninnikov [ru], two political bloggers from the Urals region of Russia. Cloud Democracy addresses a wide audience of readers “who, despite everything, believe in progress and democracy” and displays the authors’ vision on how a system of ‘future’ democratic governance can be built with the help of online tools. The preface of the book says [ru]: We believe, that we witness the new era in the history of mankind – the era of limitless direct communications, which would enable the existence of fair, transparent, and just political system.

Man, am I a geek to be so excited about this.... you have no idea. THE greatest software this guitar player has ever come across is a wonderful package called "Transcribe!".

I had a former co-worker who was somewhere on the Aspergers/Autism spectrum and couldn't pick up on subtle cues. He would be standing in my office talking to me as I collected materials, shut down my computer, picked up things, stood up, and walked to my door and stood in the hallway — and he would still keep talking to me. ("At" me might be more accurate.) I finally learned that I just had to be polite but direct: "I'm sorry, but right now I have to go to a meeting," or "I'm in the middle of something right now — can we talk a bit later?"
