Tuesday, November 22, 2005 at 11:17 AM I bought the 1822. Picking it up tomorrow.
Guess I won't be ordering Domino's Pizza for a while... *

Monday, November 21, 2005 at 4:46 PM Ah, dang it.
I wanted to buy myself some DT-100 headphones. *
I went to my local Digital Village store.
I bought some DT-100 headphones.
And a sE2200a microphone.
And a mic stand.
And a mic shield.
Well, it was only 3 times as much as I'd intended to spend!
The worst thing about this? I don't have a mixer with Phantom Power, so I can't use my sE2200a condenser microphone. Meaning I don't need the mic stand. Or mic shield.
Well, obviously as I only originally intended to get the headphones anyway, there's one clearly obvious thing to do.
So... there's a couple of cheap-but-pretty good mixers that have Phantom Power that I've got my eye on:
Behringer EURORACK UB1622FX
Behringer EURORACK UB1832FX (the model up from the 1622)
Of course, I could just return the mic and get a mic that doesn't require phantom power, but a) I'd like a mixer with FX/Aux for an upcoming project and b) I feel I'm somewhat on a roll...
Who needs food anyway?
* For use at Time FM - yes, there are headphones there but they're "well loved" to the extent that not both speakers work at all times, usually inbetween crackling a lot. Whilst that brings back fond memories of the "quality" headphones in my student radio days, I figured that was being outweighed by the fury and annoyance factor due to crackling etc...
So Much To Tell...
Wednesday, November 16, 2005 at 9:00 PM ...and so little time (before Rome starts on BBC 2).
It's been a long, long time since I blogged properly. It seems to be traditional for me to start blogging, do it religiously for a couple of weeks and then stop. I'm SO glad I never started smoking.
So... what's happened since Wednesday the 29th of June? Well, lots. Obviously. Here's some highlights:
That's about up to date (apart from the tens of things I have no doubt forgotten about). Oh and I'm still at Ford. But I suspect you guessed that much :-)
Here's to Level 40!
BLUE SKY IN GAMES!
at 3:28 PM
I mentioned to some guys from Uni (via the not-at-all-massively-geeky-IRC-channel that's set up for us to keep in touch with) that I was so amused by the UK Resistance Blue Skies in Games Campaign that I was going to blog something to Spread The Word.
I don't know, but I *think* they then implied that I hadn't blogged for a while...
[14:54] <Dave> wow!
[14:54] <Dave> that *is* saying something!
[14:54] <russ> blog? UPDATE?!?
[14:54] <Dave> you're last post was a show of compassion for the familes of those on the Titanic iirc, wasn't it?
[14:55] <Dave> with that white "Make Bubonic Plague History" strap across the corner?
[14:56] <Dave> with a comment "Yeah! Nice one!" from email@example.com ?
Anyways, yes, The Blue Sky in Games Campaign gets 100% Endorsement from me. Which means it's got a lot of weight behind it. I really should do some exercise.
HA HA HA HA HA.
Oh and I'll blog properly soon, promise! *
* This may be a promise in the same way that Sony promise any software they install on your PC is benevolent.
