    Why should we use a specific image host?

    It's not that we condemn certain image hosts, but imgur.com works a lot better than most - which is why it is often recommended. Unfortunately, imageshack have been bloated with ads recently, as well as very slow loading times.

    But you are free to use whatever host you prefer, as long as you follow the forum rules and guidelines.

    So I ordered the Intel i5 2500k to go with my second computer. It'll arrive to my door tomorrow apparently. Hope to get more pictures and updates on it as things proceed. :U

    I don't like sig references. That suggests it's always going to be there. ;_;

    I don't think my friends on the book of face know I have a computer. (Yes. The irony is not lost on me)



    And I've just discovered .flac. I like. I have about 3400GiB free HDD-space that I need to fill.

    What's annoying is that now that you like .flac, you will never find much music recorded in it

    I don't have a car, and it should work on my Samsung Galaxy SII. Will have to try later.

    depending on how Apple's icloud and match systems work, you could take any music in your collection (legal or not), match it, and re-download it as .AAC and convert it to .FLAC

    btw, as i understand it, with the matching system, its $25 a year or so, but this is second hand, i haven't tried it myself

    That's why you convert it to ALAC, grab an iPhone/iPod and direct connect it to your car stereo. ALAC = FLAC.

    And you def. can find FLAC around, it's not that scarce. Almost all my music is in FLAC. FLAC/ALAC is just a ripped CD.

    when not on iTunes, i would say roughly 90% of music is mp3, i have found a few FLAC versions of noisia and pendulum, but not much else

    Eurgh, iTunes.
    Even if I had not made the decision not to buy such devices, iTunes alone would have kept me away.
