what happened to livejournal? It seems to have completely died in the arse. Everyone used to post almost every day. Methinks the greasy tentacles of facebook have hence reached even this dim corner of the interwebs

Groove OST

Listening to the soundtrack from the rave film "Groove". Not the greatest film, but a marvellous soundtrack. It's one of the few soundtracks the actually captures more than just the essence of the movie. It also captures theme. In this case, going to raves. It starts out fairly light an upbeat, then, instead of getting hard and brain meltingly fast, it gets trancey. It comes as close to the feeling of being at a happy rave as i've seen without actually being there. Once it has you thoroughly in that mindset, it slowly wakes you up and brings you home. ANy true raver worth their salt should hear it. I don't mean listen to it in the background. I mean sit down and listen to it.

Thinking about building a HTPC

Ive been looking all over Whirlpool for info about building a HTPC. After failing to put one together myself as there's so many options, i found this build:

CPU AMD 4850e
Mobo GA-MA78GM-S2H
RAM 2gb
HDD Seagate 1tb SATA
Graphics Onboard
Case Antec NSK2480B
Burner LiteOn SATA


Anyone got an opinion? It's a little over my budget so if I can get it below $600 that'd be great. if possible i'd also like to source my parts from one location but it seems that shit is sold out here and there.

Can someone explain to me how people like aXXo manage to keep high resolution & bitrates on 700mb avi files? Seriously, im trying to back up some of my DVD collection, and I have space constraints. The best I can do on a 700mb limit is about 2/3rds of what some of these guys get. lets say aXXo puts out a movie with 600*340 @ 800bitrate, I can maybe get 480*240 @ 600bitrate for the same file size. what am I missing?

Greetings fellow maniacs!

I've been hunting high and low but to no avail. Does anyone know where I can buy a 4 bay external casing for IDE hard drives that I can plug into my computer via USB? I've got 4 old drives laying about that I want to use as backup. RAID is not needed. Every shop I walk into looks at me like I asked if they stock alien kidneys. Seems IDE is now a foreign word in most computer shops.

anyone with any interest in all things visual should see this. i love this kind of ultra-camp artwork. i especially love anything in that Bauhaus/Deco style (see the Bohn images) that and the old style propaganda posters the Soviet Union turned out

dunno why, but i love these kinds of visual

speaking of propaganda, i grew up with Disney as much as anyone else, so this blew me away. keep in mind, its pro Allies. i'd heard that Disney was for the Nazi's.
