• XM Satellite

    From Spaceman Spiff to All on Saturday, January 01, 2005 19:05:42
    Anyone else out here getting into XM Satellite Radio.
    I am going on year No.2 and just picked up the Roady Remote control and Home mounting system.

    I have the audio line run to my mixing board and then main ouptut from the board into my computer so I can record the songs to MP3's using Cool Edit.

    They have been playing awesome stuff this week. I must have recorded Deep Tracks non-stop this weekend. :)

    I bought my brother an XM Roady 2 for his vehicle, I got him hooked :) Commercial Free radio....And when traveling across country, you never have to change freqs to find a new channel.

    The new Roady 2 seems pretty cool, it was only $92 at Wal-Mart and it has a built in FM Modulator so you don't have to hard wire it into you car stereo unless you want to.

    I picked up my son a Motorola 256 Meg MP3 Player and added a 1 Gig SD card he can hold about 300 songs. I know it's not an I-POD, but this will never have a hard drive to crap out and he can buy additional memory cards or just swap the music off the computer. The motrola came with an arm band holder so he can use it while running, no disc to skip and it also has a built in radio. The unit plays Audible Audio, MP3, and WMA files. He likes it.
    So many cool toys out there. :)

    Yes. I have XM in the car, as I drive several hours a day. I LOVE it. Deep Tracks rocks. Have you heard Tom Petty's Buried Treasure? I found it interesting too!

    And the little buggers deserve what they get...stealing away our jobs.
    That's right, they want to take our jobs by working in sweat shops, screw'em then let them work for dirt. When they finally rise up and start demanding good working conditions and a good wage, then they will have to compete with other civilized countries.

    What were these sweat shops workers doing before they decided to work in a sweat shop? Let'em go back to that if it is so bad and we'll bring the tech job back to the civilized world.

    Dam bleeding heart liberals everywhere you go. And how much made in the USA stuff is in your home? Maybe we should get them out of the sweat shop, up the American taxes and have the USA give them another handout.

    No No! Your right... I feel terrible...but before I smash my Roady 2....where are your facts coming from that this unit was made in a "SWEAT SHOP"?
    To be honest, I did not find any sweat on my unit. It was very dry and did not smell of persperation or body oder.

    Oh wait, I have to talk to my illegal imigrant yard workers and then tell Lolita the illegal imigrant maid to wash my back. I will continue this conversation later.

    Yeah, deep tracks is awesome...I haven;t caught all of the Tom Petty stuff, I need to start reading the XM Newsletter they send me in email more...they keep you up on special events coming up.

    I haven't listened to so much music since I was in School back in the 70's.

    I have a streaming server set up at the house, so I can generally listen wherever there's an internet connection, and for the road I've had an indash mp3 player in the car for a few years now.

    I havent had any experience with XM. I'd think if you were someone in the car all the time (trucker, salesman) it'd be great. But for your every day person, Im not so sure if itd be that good. I have a Sirius-ready reciever in my car but never had an inkling to subscribe. Sell me on it. :)

    You can try it for a couple months, XM is only $9.99/month and you can pay by the month and cancle if you don't like it.

    Sirus is a couple bucks more a month, but you already have the radio. Treat yourself to a month. If you don't like it, cancel the service. Worst you will be out $12.

    Wow.... I was just joking man... Chill a little.. I don't know if your product was mad in a sweatshop or not, But I Do not like the way Wal-Mart conducts their business, They say that they "Buy USA whenever they can" But have you actually seen anything there "Made in the USA"? Then they drive prices so low that they give LOCAL business no other option than to shut down. BTW don't call be a fucking liberal just because I have a certian opinion on something.

    That sounds almost like it could be an advertising slogan...

    either way.. it's sad.. very very sad.. and infectious

    "What do you mean?"
    "You've gotta giggle like a girl. Half now, and half when we reach Daldaar."

    Perhaps you should follow your own advice and not jump to conclusions so readily, as you did in response to the 'gay' posts. I too was kidding and anyone who followed the thread should've gotten the joke.

    meaning high pitched and squealing like a pig i guess.. don't you remember back when you were in high school and you could hear the girls giggle either in the hallway or on the way past the boys/girls rest rooms? or the locker rooms

    And the little buggers deserve what they get...stealing away our jobs. That's right, they want to take our jobs by working in sweat shops, screw then let them work for dirt. When they finally rise up and start demandin working conditions and a good wage, then they will have to compete with o civilized countries.

    What were these sweat shops workers doing before they decided to work in sweat shop? Let'em go back to that if it is so bad and we'll bring the te back to the civilized world.

    Dam bleeding heart liberals everywhere you go. And how much made in the U stuff is in your home? Maybe we should get them out of the sweat shop, up American taxes and have the USA give them another handout.

    No No! Your right... I feel terrible...but before I smash my Roady 2....w are your facts coming from that this unit was made in a "SWEAT SHOP"?
    To be honest, I did not find any sweat on my unit. It was very dry and di smell of persperation or body oder.

    Oh wait, I have to talk to my illegal imigrant yard workers and then tell Lolita the illegal imigrant maid to wash my back. I will continue this conversation later.



    Wow.... I was just joking man... Chill a little.. I don't know if your produ was mad in a sweatshop or not, But I Do not like the way Wal-Mart conducts their business, They say that they "Buy USA whenever they can" But have you actually seen anything there "Made in the USA"? Then they drive prices so lo that they give LOCAL business no other option than to shut down. BTW don't c be a fucking liberal just because I have a certian opinion on something.



    :) Alrighty.

    My work here is done!

    You can say that because you have one near you!

    I spent the afternoon with two women who were planning a trip of over
    2,000 miles so they can go to a Walmart. And you know something? If I
    had the $800-ish for the plane ticket, I'd go too!



    I got one up the street Angus, what do you need? 89Cent shampoo...a new Mr. Wilson ball? (Humour on an island take off joke insinuating you are like Tom Hanks in Castaway living on your island) Seriously, you get us rum and we'll send you cheap merchandise from China.

    I don't think we are allowed to send Large Capacity hard Drives out of the country though. I believe our government is affraid terrorist may use them to calculate how to do something aweful like design an A bomb. Shhhh...don't tell them but things like hard drives and fast computers are already made and available out of our country....come to think of it, wasn't the first A-Bomb made by guys who did not have computers....any way I degress

    These ladies will spend two to three full days in Walmart, and sign a
    contract with a freight company to get the stuff home in one or more 'barrels'.

    There are several thriving businesses around here that will deliver you an empty 'barrel' in Florida, then pick it up again and ship it to your house here. I think it's $96 per 'barrel', including tghe price of the 'barrel' itself.

    The two women in question are only going for six days, travelling up on
    the first day and back on the sixth, so I doubt they will need more than three, possibly four 'barrels'.

    You can try it for a couple months, XM is only $9.99/month and you can pay b the month and cancle if you don't like it.

    What about the antenna? do I wire something up to my roof, to use it as the antenna? guessing there is some similar service over here on this side of the world, but might not be. I do work with sattys, and alot of times they focus their beams on one spot. Australia is below me, so I might be able to find a few good radio stations off of their sattys, but if their beams are focused just on australia, then i'll be outa the picture. no idea on it for japan...

    this is the part that really sucks living in japan.. I REALLY need to learn their language.

    I think I have 4 Wal-marts within a 30 minute drive. That number might be lo though. I might have missed a couple.

    Yea nearest one for me is Korea.

    think there is one in Tokyo also, but there are MAC (space Available) flights to korea that are free for me...

    Still would have to update my wifes visa (really should do that) and then get together the money for a car rental there, license? and hotel fare....

    I might put in for leave sometime this year to go.

    years i took it. the damn school wouldn't let me quit. um gym.. i usually skipped it so i could go have a *cough cough* smoke. so i pretty much failed all my classes with 30's or lower grades.. but i had a 90 average in earth science and i think around a 80 to 90 average in history..

    Know I've asked this, but have no idea even what to google on this one.

    You can access the messages just like a newsgroup. You have to configure your newsreader or even Outlook Express's Newsreader to access the BBS you are telnetting into. You can read all messages and reply and use the Spell checker.

    walmart for the most part is like a typical virus.. just keeps spreading around and infecting everyone with low prices

    The Evil MBR Has Spoken

    Blame the American's, French, and English for starting this trend...

    Learning about this in my American History book... timeframe is around 1800

    and it's all three... not just one. they all did it.

    Walmart is just the next step in the whole thing, and it's the Industrial Revolution that started this trend...

    bla bla bla.. history, i know.

    Kusho

    The next big step in corporate America is to start exporting CEO jobs, Jez why are we paying our CEO's $128,000,000.00 a year saleries when we could get someone just as smart from outside the US to do the job for $50,000 a year.

    Now that would save the stock holders a bundle!

    What comes round goes round...

    Wow.... I was just joking man... Chill a little.. I don't know if your pr was mad in a sweatshop or not, But I Do not like the way Wal-Mart conduct their business, They say that they "Buy USA whenever they can" But have y actually seen anything there "Made in the USA"? Then they drive prices so that they give LOCAL business no other option than to shut down. BTW don' be a fucking liberal just because I have a certian opinion on something.

    Do the local buisnesses offer medical insurance for all of their workers? Retirement?

    Advancement? Equil Oppertunity Employment??

    2 sides to that coin....


    Yeah I know man.. Like I said.. I was just joking.. My sister works at walmart.. She has stock options, Just got a $800 dollar bonus.. They tak egood care of her.. But they did put a few mom and pop stores out of business.

    Yea nearest one for me is Korea.

    think there is one in Tokyo also, but there are MAC (space Available) flight to korea that are free for me...

    Still would have to update my wifes visa (really should do that) and then ge together the money for a car rental there, license? and hotel fare....

    I might put in for leave sometime this year to go.

    Maybe I'll just open my own. Any investors out there?


    Japanese car parts are freaking crazy expensive.

    and think theres like 1 auto store thats about the size of 3 stateside atm h on this whole island, and they want like $600 for a freaking remanufactured power steering pump...

    So shut the hell up on walmart. I LOVE the concept.

    You wouldn't want to work in a factory anyway.. that's the point, and why t all moved.


    That's all we have here is factories this is the "Carpet capital of the world" but no I don't work in a facory but I have.

    You *can* reply. If you're referring to NNTP, you just need to configure outlook to use your BBS username and password for the NNTP sessions. If you're using SMTP, just configure outlook to use your BBS usernamd and password and check the box "Allow authetnicated users to relay" in the Synchronet mail server configuration dialog.

    You can access the messages just like a newsgroup. You have to configure you newsreader or even Outlook Express's Newsreader to access the BBS you are telnetting into. You can read all messages and reply and use the Spell check

    Okay, how do I set that portion up. When I asked before I was told I
    was retarded, and that wasn't possible.

    (That newsreaders weren't capable of replying)

    The newsreader portion is easy, go to "Tools" "Accounts" then select the
    "News" tab. Click on the "Add" select "News" and follow the prompts.
    When it asks for the news server, either put your local IP <if its
    yours> or the DNS name of the BBS or your ISP's newsgroup server,
    such as news.bellsouth.net that you want to connect to. When you run it,
    it'll ask you if you want to pull down the list of newsgroups available,
    do so, and pick and choose. The one problem I have seen is that when
    you "Reply" to or create a new message, its posted to "All". I think
    Duce or someone had a fix or work around for that, and since I haven't
    tried it in some time, it may have been fixed in the 3.12 version, but I
    don't know for sure.

    Hope that helps.

    i want a mini fridge in my computer room.. but i come to realize that i don't even need the big one i have in the kitchen. i always eat out and rarely eat at home..

    if you look in my fridge right now.. all you'll see is a pitcher of ice
    water. about 6 cartons of smokes.. and of course that 12 pack of beer

    I think it was the scene where he is ranting about the nature of mankind and god.

    And it was Half Sister....that part didn't bother me....that led into the part where he said, "What about love?" She says or was itPachino who said "love is over rated, chemically no different than eating lots of chocolate.

    I think Wal-Mart put a hurting on K-Mart, but from what I see in Pennsylvania, business is thriving everywhere. Some of the Mom & Pops needed to go under, they were gouging he people.

    And as far as buying everthing at Wal-Mart...well a lot of what they sell is junk as far as hardware like shower heads...plumbing stuff I am much better off going to a Sears hardware or local hardware store, thought they are getting heavy competition from Lowes and Home Depot.

    I miss Hechingers and Builders Square.
    I still try to buy USA when buying tools.
    Made in China tools just are poor quality tools.
    My Grinding Wheel is a Delta made in Pittsburg. Great piece of equipment.
    My Drill Press, a Guardian made in Illinois....
    My handtools...mostly USA made Craftsman.
    About half my HAM radios were made in the USA.
    My guitars and amps...Made in the USA
    My Toilet..and American Standard, plumbing fixtures...USA
    I believe even my washer and dryer, fridge and stove are USA made
    I am not sure about my Dish Washer....
    My Ford Explorer was made in the USA....my wife drives the Honda...:(
    but at least it has American made tires.
    My BBS software was made in the USA. :)
    I keep trying to go USA...but it is getting harder all the time.

    Anybody remember Harrison Ford in the Mosquito Coast....he was digging through the junk yard looking for an American made piece of refridgerator door insulation. LOL
