    I tried to do this....but as far as the mic port on my STX was concerned, the guitar barely existed. Turns out with no amplification they output a pathetically weak signal
    But it works great when fed into an audio interface and THEN into the microphone jack, or directly from the audio interface into the PC itself. Lots of amping!

    Also Delt isn't exactly a guitar guy :P

    Yeah my bass worked (i think because it's active), but direct playback was impossible. There was like a half-second delay. So i couldn't hear what I was playing.

    I had that delay as well when using my Line 6 Pod XT but I was under the expression that the Xonar would actually fix it. Haven't given it a go yet though. Then again I don't see how DAC would be any different (it's usb interface like my Pod XT). For me it's a moot point nevertheless since I can just plug my headphones to the Pod itself and then plug that to the PC via USB and just record. There's some delay but I can't hear it since I'm not listening to the PC realtime.

    And, as Xuvial said, since there's no amping nor any sound effects or processing the output is not only gonna sound weak but also very plain. No gain, distortion, nothing. Pretty hard to play like that. That's why you ultimately want a digital amp modeler to make it sound better.

    The D1can't, however Deltrus's unit can do it. And you're right, it did sound really bland x'D

    Oh, yeah I haven't found a way around that either. Even the slightest amount of delay really screws with being able to play properly.

    Meh, the disadvantage of a 'good' speakerset and a DAC is you realise how pisspoor most recordings are...

    Really comes down to how much a given musical artist, for example, cares about how their music sounds. I can say that Dream Theater is one who cares a lot and 99.5% of their stuff sounds crystal clear. The only time it gets a little rough is when they go to extreme highs at high volume.

    I don't know if anything was sent to my contacts, no one said anything. But I've been with Yahoo for almost a decade now... wow. I'm pretty comfortable. Beta tester, unlimited storage, all the good stuff! ;D

    Heh, Death Magnetic anyone? :'')

    Also, indeed DT's albums sound nice. Never get tired of that 6string bass, much like Karnivool. It just sounds divine.

    If your account was affected they would have auto-reseted your password. Anyway it wasn't hacking on yahoo per se since the attack took place on third party site afaik? So take some common precautions for password protection and you should be safe.

    Yeah, i think the term 'hacking' gets used too loosely. I don't think a person actively went after your personal account to send a few spam. This looks more like a automatic hijack/keylog of your account.

    The only reason I noticed I was hacked is when I was at work, my other email emailed my work email. It look at it and was like "wtf is this?". Though the person did email my contact list, yahoo did lock my account right fast after that.

    You sending an email to your entire contactlist from another country is a nice telltale sign usually : )

    The guy says 10MB. Also, just look at the engineering that went into that thing. It was designed to do one thing, and it does that one thing brilliantly and simply. A truly amazing and beautiful piece of design.

    It was later confirmed to be a bit bigger like 2-4gb I think. Anyway, such an awesome "little" thing indeed.

    Thermalright Silver Arrow. Probably even harder to find then a NH-D14 though.
