The last time I actually built something with a DAC in it (an external FM synthesis project box for the C64 long after it was dead everywhere but Bulgaria) was 1993, and that had a 4x or 8x oversampling DAC even then. Think it was $6 for a single chip "over the counter"... in bulk even then they were probably $2.

The things you play with when one of your buddies was in second year electrical engineering.

According to Wikipdia, "a cult is a group of people devoted to beliefs and goals which are not held by the majority of society, often religious in nature. Its marginal status may come about either due to its novel belief system or due to idiosyncratic practices that cause the surrounding culture to regard it as far outside the mainstream."

Do you mean to say that because the majority of society believes modern CD players read digital bits differently, depending on manufacturer, when the disagreeing minority believes the majority is mistaken, this equates to cult-like behavior?

Don't even start, he'll have you burned at the stake for being a witch.

Geez, Peter, while you had that dictionary out, should have looked up "Charismatic"! I ain't it. It ain't me. *G*

My horrorscope is right on though...

Pisces (Feb 23 - Mar 22)
You are a pioneer type and think most people are d!ckheads. You are quick to reprimand, impatient and full of advice. You do nothing but p!ss-off everyone you come in contact with. You are a pr!ck.

I really enjoyed this one...

Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)
You are the artistic type and have a difficult time dealing with reality. If you are a male you are probably queer. Chances for employment and monetary gain are nil. Most Libra women are whores. All Libras die of venereal disease.




So...I'm gay, unemployed, broke, will die of venereal disease *and* can't deal with reality?

If you say so.

Looks like I don't fair much better

"Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 22)
You are the worst of the lot. You are shrewd in business and cannot be trusted. You shall achieve the pinnacle of success because of your total lack of ethics. You are the perfect son-of-a-bitch. Most Scorpios are murdered."
