What You Did With Your Last Laptop?

While watching Cracking Open: Acer Aspire S3, a thought came in mind that what Bill Detwiler's did with his last laptop and I think this is the best place to ask the same with Junkies and Gurus.

I gave it to my 2 years daughter...she is using it as a toy :)

So if I understand your post correctly

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to my job is in audio . . .

You wake up to Black Sabbath playing at 78 instead of 33.3 and it's at Audio Assault Levels.

Good to wake up and See God every morning isn't it?

only an uber loud setup

No harm in baiting him a little, is there?

by AnsuGisalas In reply to ...off to the races

But then Black Sabbath is probably too heavy for his tastes

J/G... Just goading

A Sub isn't required if you set things up properly

I would use the NB as a PreAmp feeding a smallish Power Amp of something like 800 W per Chanel and then position a pair of AR9 Speakers about half an inch from each ear with a Minimal Load through the Amp's Main Potentiometer.

Never fails to wake the intended person or for that matter anyone within half a mile.

"I can use it during the day

by CharlieSpencer In reply to my job is in audio . . .

Ah, I see now; you're using it for more than just an alarm clock.

What's the purpose of the blank .MP3 files? Doesn't playing them just make no sound at all, or white noise at best?

I usually wake up ten minutes before my alarm. It's mostly for the cat's benefit, so he knows it is now acceptable for him to begin whining for his breakfast. Prior to the alarm going off, he gets sprayed with water if he complains.

are to be played before the actual tunes start

when the blank mp3 files end that's when the "alarm" goes off

- bed time
- boot laptop
- open media player
- need' to get up in 7 hours
- start playing blank mp3 that will play for 7 hours
- next track on the playlist is what wakes you up (and those are usually .wav files)
- the blank MP3 files are 17MB each (as .wav they'd be over 600MB each)
