"What can I say, I live in the past."

So do I, but not musically, which is why I gave up on commercial radio. Noncommercial radio still has some hope adn then there's online radio.

Speaking of old data books

In the first comment of this article (December 10), I mentioned Home-Made Digital Clock Keeps on Ticking. Well someone just e-mailed me to say that he built two clocks with the MM531x series clock chips and he still has the data book. He wrote:

"I have the 1977 National Semiconductor MOS/LSI databook on the shelf behind me, the MM5316 data runs from page 1-9 thru page 1-13. Paper is somewhat yellowed with age."

I thought about buying one of those turntables to digitize my vinyl recordings, then realized that the unit would outlive its usefulness and besides, I really didn;t want ot listen to the music anyway.

What do you do with the turntable once you've digitized all your vinyl recordings? It kind of has a limitee usefulness after that.

Indeed. It is sitting on a bookshelf. I offered it to other members of my family who also have extensive LP collections, but none were as enthusiastic about the idea. Still it wasn't that expensive (less than $200) and I went into the project with the knowledge that its usefulness was limited.

I use Audacity on my XP dn Win7 computers. The Win7 version stopped recording from the microphone input. No idea why. I switched to plugging my phone into a batter-operated voice recorder, then transfer the mp3 output to my PC. It's great for recording interviews.

The older version of Audacity on my XP laptop works perfectly. I often use it to record streaming audio.

Quite possibly it was the excellent Audacity audio editor.



It definitely was Audacity. Thanks.

"It didn't come with any softyware (because of copyright issues) but pointed me at public domain software (I don't remeber the name offhand) That worked well."

Quite possibly it was the excellent Audacity audio editor.

You could get the spine cut off at a book binder place.

Interesting point. The problem would have been that I would have had to take hundreds of books to the bookbinder place and then bring them back in pieces, to say nothing of the costs. Still it's idea to keep in mind.
