Re: Wot band does your prog collection start with?

Re: Footy

Opinions are like arseholes; everybody's got one, so here's my arsehole... This young England team was fine when teams were backing off of us. When we were "allowed" to boss the game we did. When we were put under constant pressure we folded. There was no plan B, no real leaders, and therefore no Wo...

Re: Vibrating CD player casing

A heavy(ish) granite/marble worktop saver from Amazon etc. would do the job too, and perhaps look nicer As Fretless said, decoupling might also work, although I believe the CXC ...

Re: Audio Addicts (ex The Audio Forum)

I feel that the phrase "pride of ownership" should not form such a major part of the desire to own, or not, a source component. Give me a Pi that sounds great over an average CD player that looks terrific every day. My equivalent to "pride of ownership" comes from knowing I built my streamer, hacked...

Re: First (quizzer)
