I finally went and fetched my electric guitar from my parents house, and discovered that it's a lot easier to record directly with my computer than I remembered! Woo! I've been warned that the high output impedance of the guitar will muddy the sound somewhat, since it's going straight into a microphone jack that has a preamp behind it, and obviously I'd get a much better sound with an amp, a cabinet, and a decent microphone - but for now, I can use my laptop as an effects pedal and direct that into Audacity, and record music without annoying the neighbours!

November was the first month I can remember, or have record for, that I drank fewer than one alcoholic drink per day. That is a good thing. I want to maintain that for December.

See, I reckon I could do that. Up until Christmas day at least. The 30 I'd drink on that day wouldn't balance out too well.

Use the line input of your sound card if it has one, it'll clear up the tone and reduce noise significantly. Or if you want to spend money you can buy a direct input USB cable which costs like $10 at most.

I speed-wrote a paper, and it was GOOD! At least, for speed-writing standards.

I am super-awesomely productive when I go to the coffeeshop. I'm not sure why, but I waste a lot less time around the internet here than at home.

Thanks for the advice! I don't have a line-in (at least, not unless it's masquerading as the mic jack) - and I couldn't find a decent USB direct input for less than $50 - maybe I wasn't looking hard enough?

I guess I was a bit optimistic with my price guess :| Well, I have this cable here http://www.amazon.com/Guitar-Bass-Cable ... itar+cable which according to the Amazon reviews is not great and has latency issues which I circumvent by using ASIO4All, but that has its own set of issues, one of them being that it uses your sound card exclusively and that it has sound quality issues sometimes, which might be a bigger inconvinence to you since you don't have a physical amp. And if you're looking for virtual amplification software I recommend you buy or otherwise obtain Peavey's Revalver.

This all assumes you use Windows, if you have OS X you'll probably experience less latency issues since its audio system is less of a clusterfuck than Windows'. YMMV though.

I'm on Linux at the moment, and having quite a good time with Rakarrack and Jack. That cable does look like it could be very useful though, so thank you for that! I also do have a physical amp, but I live in a shared building, so disturbing the neighbours would be a problem.

Truly awesome!

I remember the dark times when they stopped selling Kit-Kat in Brazil. *shudder*. It's back now, since 2010 or 2011, I guess.

On the awesome note: my last two days at work were more productive than the last week and a half. So, maybe my vacations are not in so terrible danger.

thats a curiosity in itself- if its so wildly popular (in other countries), why hasn't it been introduced to the mainstream united states market?

Nope, he and his companion were in a rush. My friends and I were on our way back to our hotel from a karaoke bar when he brushed my shoulder. I immediately recognized him and my friends and I went back to try to find him (he was really booking it). We only caught up to him because he momentarily stopped to look at his phone. I think he was trying to find a specific bar or something. We only had enough time to say hello and get the fistbumps in and then he was gone.

It's not an intentional safe queen. He just can't get ahold of the components to fire it like he used to. And living in NYS, who knows if he'll even be able to before too long.

Yep! I haven't frozen to death yet.

By pure chance I ended up seeing Flogging Molly tonight, and I accidentally ended up in the pit. I smell like beer and sweat, I have bruises all over, and my mind is free for the first time in weeks.
