    The switch is not electrically connected to anything, it only exists to help you to remember if you've charged the battery. You're supposed to set it so that the red dot shows once it's been...

    Windows XP x64 edition seems to be one of the "not worth bothering with" versions of Windows, like ME and Vista also are. Windows 7 appears to be the better choice on any (?) hardware capable of...

    Yeah, I've heard of "badlines" and the things that people try to do with them.

    My point still stands. The bean counters at the movie studios wouldn't have hesitated to use a slower speed for the sound-on-film standard if they thought they could've gotten away with it. ...

    Because of no VIC-II to contend with? Did anyone ever put the 1541's 6502 to use in a parallel processing situation with the C64's 6510?

    The Commodore 1541 floppy disk drive which came out in 1982 has a 6502 processor clocked at 1 MHz in it. Which is actually slightly faster than the CPU in the PAL version of the C64...

    This is actually a myth. 24 FPS was deemed the lowest speed capable of achieving an acceptable quality optical soundtrack. They would've gone even lower if they could've gotten away with it, just...

    Haha. I did this too! I ended up reinstalling Windows rather than trying to fix things.

    There weren't any notices. Microsoft just starting using SSE2 Instructions in their updates to Windows 7, Embedded Standard 2009 and POSReady 2009 this year, in March for Windows 7 and in August for...

    Apparently since August of this year POSReady 2009 updates require CPUs with SSE2 support. Not a problem if you're careful but it's something that users need to be aware of.

    I should note that if you don't care about the losslessness you can skip or undo the volume scale factor adjustment (MP3Gain) part of the process to get MP3s that any decoder should cope with...

    I'm glad you're interested. My lossless method should be suitable for any two level signal, i.e. anything that switches between maximum positive and negative amplitude. So any phase and frequency...

    We still don't know whether or not you tried the clear CMOS jumper. I'm going to assume you did and it made no difference. It sounds like the motherboard is on the way out, especially as you say...

    I'm sure it'd work fine with my method. As I mentioned before it is possible to encode these sorts of signals using an MP3 encoder in such a way that they are decoded to the exact same signal, i.e....

    You'd be surprised. I've done exactly this with MP3 at bitrates from 56 kbps to 80 kbps with Sinclair ZX Spectrum recordings. Losslessly too, if you know what you're doing...

    I suppose that it was silly for it not to occur to me that it might be a factor. But it's the first time I've ever encountered this sort of thing with VNC, specifically keypresses seemingly not...
