    Are you a gear-snob?

    Definitely not a gear snob here.


    Nice gear is nice. 


    But it doesn't make bad music good and it never will.

      I agree with that 100%

    No.  I never have been.  And I just don't have time for that crap or anybody who's really into that.

      My reverse gear snobbery extends to my computer, as well.


      While I once spent new car money on a computer (OK, Yugo money, anyhow; my second, back in 1988), while my current life pretty much revolves around my computer (I work for a living on it; I make music on it; I edit vids on it; I get virtually all my electronic entertainment and edification on it (or my tablet or phone).


      So... is it some fire-breathing, overclocked, water-cooled rocket ship?


      Hardly.


      It's a refurbed Dell, single core, beater P4 (HT) that cost $343 before tax and shipping. (I added monitor big drives,  FW, memory, etc, of coruse.)  


      It does what I need and it does it, overall, pretty darn well.*


       


      *Flash issues notwithstanding. For the last year and change, various problems with Adobe's Flash have kept me hopping from browser to browser for Flash content. I don't know if it's especially bad on XP or what, but I have to say my contempt for Adobe just keeps solidifying.

        You can't claim gear is really retro-cool unless all the diodes are cat-whisker galena crystals.   :cat: (damn - what a lame set of emoticons!)
