I don't want to rant today.

I would like you to hear Hugo Chavez interview on Democracy Now instead, either audio or video. WOW!!!

There's also links to a longer Chavez speech (64mb) in NY. Learn about what politics can really be like. Can you imagine a government that focusses on helping people rather than helping businesses? Where the focus is on helping and healing vs profiteering and warmongering? Chavez also touches on Robertson's assassination threat and the upcoming oil crisis.

Damn, I ranted.

I'm back up and running my new system.
based on amd athlon 4000+

I have to say it was quite the educational experience learning about each of the parts that I eventually chose.

what an overall pain in the ass to put together but it started on first try.

Travis 'Bush is my Bitch'
Click on "Bush is my Bitch" link. Funniest part are the last few lines.

At MacWorld, Jobs intro'd new Macs running on Intel chips. Yawn. They run fast, and basically look the same. The only thing about it for me is it makes my 2005 Powerbook into an old piece of shit. :(

One thing that blew me away is how few Mac users use any KB shortcuts.

Some other new goodies at the event, like new software & toys. I bought an Oxygen 8 from the Guitar Ctr booth to replace my aging & large Alesis keyboard. Had problems with latency on the PC, I bet the Mac is faster.

Getting better at Ableton Live, so might as well have a good device to trigger. Going to have to learn some more advanced Mac sound editing software, I guess.

Plus have the evolution U-16. Would've preferred the newer 'X' version (of course), but it's a good box. Highly rec a midi-knob box messing w/Midi automation in music software.

Anyone else making music want to discuss music setups?
