Reading is fundamental.

But on a cereal note, that they are combined into one cable makes sense. Unfortunately I still will need to dick around with a tone generator to see what range goes to each component so I can best set up an LC7i unless anyone can recommend a better DAC solution for less.

Thanks all!

I'm guessing he means these symbols:



I couldn't find it in the link TrickerZ posted, but if I had to guess, I'd say it probably signifies a twisted pair.

It's Apple, what do you expect?

I don't mean to be snarky, I mean that like everything else, I assume them to place form over function, putting the phone itself right at the top of the stack so that the experience of opening the box for the first time is maximally awesome.

When I got off the train this morning, people were literally camped out on the sidewalk outside Grand Central.

(There's an iStore inside Grand Central.)

And by "camped," I literally mean that they slept on the street alongside the homeless. They were starting to pile up inside GCT yesterday as I was leaving- there was a brigade of around 50 NYPD cops* and several Army soldiers manning the station.

* = note to Braniac: I walked right past a large group of them, easily within tazing / clubbing range, and none of them assaulted me or attempted to deprive me of my civil liberties in any way. I even had a pocketknife on my person at the time, although I did not wield it at them or threaten them with it.

My wife pre-ordered one last week.

Ship date = sometime in November.

I still don't get the whole camping out to get electronics, Black Fridays, etc. Thankfully the Proletariat serve that amusing role.

A few weeks ago my wife stayed at the Joe Perez's family hotel. She got a few pictures of the lobby workers:

You lie. It is impossible to photograph a duck. All allegedly extant photographs of ducks are, in fact, extremely elaborate oil paintings.



Anecdote:

We finally disposed of an old camera robot today. It was one of three installed in 1995, and had been partially nonfunctional for quite some time. Parts are impossible to come by, and we installed a completely new set of robots earlier in the year, so I finally got tired of this old one taking up space in the basement and arranged for its disposal today.

One of my engineers, who I put in charge of this task, sent the following company-wide email after the deed was done:
It saddens me to inform you that Camera Robotic Pedestal Number 3 was disposed of today.

“Robot 3” had been in storage in the ground floor scenery dock since February of this year. Its base had not functioned for quite some time.

Mr. Tolerico gave a most moving eulogy. Condolences were received from Mr. Zerafa, Mr. Seminerio, Mr. Perez, et al.

Those who wish to pay their final respects may do so until the dumpster is removed.

Elias





I responded thusly:





A good laugh has been had by all.

It's in the alley halfway between 2nd & 3rd ave which connects 41st & 42nd streets in midtown Manhattan.

Come and get it.

How to tell if console gaming sucks:

Is it between 1985 and 1992?
Y: Console gaming does not suck.
N: Console gaming sucks.
