Easier to mount and dismount when wearing a skirt. Duh. It looks a bit off with the three pairs of stays on the rear: chain, seat, and brake stays? Sweet bike though. Nice saddle and grips. Brooks? edit: Looks like I'm a few days late for my sarcasm about the skirt to be appreciated lol...

Two tickets to see The National Chorale perform Carl Orff's Carmina Burana at Lincoln Center.

Just offered myself a digitization of some of my CD collection (sent 250 CDs to getDigital)

That's the first step before getting a Sonos system

What does getDigital do that you couldn't with some basic software?

100+ hours of manipulating CDs to rip MP3s. Something I would never actually do

Ripping a CD into MP3s takes a matter of minutes (I just did a 65 minute album in 5 minutes, including putting the CD in and opening the program). 250 CDs x 5 minutes each equals 1250 minutes, or about 21 hrs give or take. Which I would do in between surfing SF. Are they using a lossless format or just a standard MP3? What do they charge for this?

OK you're right Brian. Let's say that I just like to spend my money on useless purchases. I'm kind of stupid like that

I did it myself and I wish I went the route that you took.

If you've got more money than time, congrats. I aspire to such a situation myself.

It takes me 15 min to open the case, rip the CD, check that all track info is correct, put back in case. That's 4 CDs per hour. They charge $1.49 per CD. Yes, unsurprisingly, I do value my time a bit more than $5.96 per hour. Especially my free time

I'll do it and only charge you 1.25 per

Right now I'd do it myself but I should've turned my Dad on to that.

I just bought a VPI HW16.5 record cleaning machine for my growing vinyl collection.
