Icon6 Re: Your Favorite Equipment & Software

I'm totally new at the torrent hobby but have learned vast amounts about things in the past month. Here's my basic equipment:

Computer:
Home built desktop with AMD Dual Core 5800
2GB memory
DVD-RW etc
250GB drive (with only 80GB left in 4 months! I'll be getting an external soon)
Windows Vista Premium (some things are great, some things suck. XP is better)

Router: Linksys WGS54G Wireless (yes the stock admin login has been changed) I use the trigger on port function instead of using a specific port each time for torrents.

Software: (I'm in the process of trying free utilities)
uTorrent 1.75 (I tried Azareus but didn't care for it, I don't want a HTTP window to open while I'm downloading)

Nero 8 Suite for Wave editing etc.

MediaMonkey V2.55: (this is way better for setting up and retagging MP3's and other formats then most things I've tried. I liked it so much I bought the lifetime license/updates version). This will automatically convert a FLAC file into MP3 as it loads music into my portable device too.

Walkman type device(Ha! I'm a product born in the early sixties so I call all iPod related devices Walkmans): iRiver CLIX 2GB generation 1. I also have a utility that will convert AVi into the right size to play on CLIX.

VLC media player V0.8.6: Vista/WMP V11 checks for codecs and won't play if it decides somethings not right. No worries with VLC.

Stereo Equipment: Some 4 year old Sony desktop thing. I can patch a line into the digital input of my soundcard to convert tapes into a wave file.

Re: Your Favorite Equipment & Software

I am in love with...

Monitor:
ViewSonic VG920

Programming editor:
UltraEdit

Devel soft:
Ruby on Rails

Amplifier:
Yamaha AX-496 (Love the pure-direct switch, thus no eq & no pre-amp)

My dog:
pictured above.

Not much in love with the speakers:
Technics SBLX 90 (yes, they are huge but lack a little on the hi freqs).

EDIT: for completeness.

Cassette deck:
Technics RS TR232

Cd player:
Kenwood

Dvd player:
A generic one that I love to replace every year.

Dvd recorder:
Another generic which I don't want to replace in the near future.

What are NS-10s? Yamaha speakers?
Because, I tried some (before going Technics) and they pretty sucked: all in all, muffled (or muddy?) sound.

Forgot to add...

Proudly, NOT an owner of a home theatre.
Sadly, around here is almost impossible to get a decent stereo amp.

Ok, thank you.

Yep. Note: They have nothing but the name in common with the Yamaha NS-1000.

My 24 inch widescreen Syncmaster 244T. 8bit, professional grade monitor. No off axis problems, beautiful colors, PIP, HD compliant, multiple inputs, landscape or portrait mode.

My Klipsch V2-400's. First THX certified computer speakers. They may not be the best anymore but they still rock. 400 watt's babeee.

My Klipsch iGroove's. Makes my iPod sound spectacular at work. And I can crank it loud enough to piss off a construction site.

And another favorite, Peggle. It's like fucking crack. Damn you PopCap.

Re: Your Favorite Equipment & Software

I've got a bunch of gear that I'll post when I'm drunk and posting.

In the mean time, the absolute best piece of technology to come along for me in the last few years is the DVR. Oh my god how that has transformed my life. I never realized there were soooo many shows that I would be interested in! And I can watch them twice as fast!

DVR is great.
