My wife has borrowed all my recording stuff for the next month (console, music pc, monitors, mics etc) as she is training some people in radio production and producing a radio play. She took the stuff late last week but told me it was only for a few days - this morning she says it will be until early November mad.gif . Can't argue as we need the cashflow.

She's very kindly left me with a mini mp3 recorder and her Sony laptop - it can edit mp3s and wav files so that's one thing smile.gif but not a fair swop. She really needs to invest some cash in her own setup.

Last time she did a course I ended up having to sort out pc audio at the last moment as her (so called) pc tech hadn't done the job properly sad.gif . I'm expecting this to happen again - already know one bodge that he's done this time. He gets paid and I get the grief from a stressed out wife rolleyes.gif . I really don't want him near my pc either - last time he got his hands on it I had to do a system restore to undo his mess and reseat a lot of the internal pci cards because he had been messing about inside it mad.gif blink.gif .

Oh well the money will be good.

Cheers,
Tony

Believe or not Matt he's worse blink.gif - partly because he *thinks* he is really good with computers when he isn't so he's positively dangerous rolleyes.gif .

(Like he's so good he's filled his hard disc to bursting with downloads to the point where there is no room for the swop file and so his pc crawls along. He once fitted a new motherboard, new ram and cpu because he thought that his pc had died - it hadn't, the video card was powered intermittently through a dodgy molex so he had a black screen but didn't know to listen for the POST messages that clearly demonstrated that his mobo was ok. laugh.gif. It's his answer to everything - new mobo wink.gif )

BTW the head pc tech in my School at my UK Uni is actually a qualified time served bricky and has no background at all in pcs or networks rolleyes.gif . Lucky for him many of the staff are so pc illiterate that they need help finding the power switch so he does fine laugh.gif . I like our techs - good for a laugh and nice guys to drink with (they also have the key to the stationary cupboard tongue.gif ).

Cheers,
Tony

It is amaizing how many PC techs around are like that. Alot of companys will hire just about anyone! there usual way of fixing things is to just "re-install" the OS or do a slap dash job at installing compontents.

Ive always been one for fine tuneing a pc to perform well - as opposed to just replacing or upgradeing smile.gif My PC is a few years old now, but i can gaurentee it perorms alot better than anything youll find in PC world today because i take the time to tweek and maintain it correctly.


Sorry i AM rambleing laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

I should get out more as well though Matt smile.gif

Wife's out working and I've just spent the last three hours watching football and drinking beer with my daughter (well ok she didn't drink any beer blink.gif ). Maybe I'll pop up the road to my neighbour's illegal bar with the little 'un for some fresh air wink.gif .

Cheers,
Tony
