I think I found out another issue with this update : Sandboxie (latest V3) refused to work until after I uninstalled this patch. Found that on Sandboxie user forum.

(Obviously) not if you want to use the files directly, though - like large .WIM files for Windows installs, or HD .MKVs for playback on a media thingamajigAll USB sticks come formatted as FAT. But FAT can't store large multi-gigabyte files. Does anyone see any problems with formatting a disk in NTFS? I can't come up with a reason not to...you can always use an archiver like winrar that can split big files into chunks of 4GB max. And keep the FAT32 format.-superboyac (November 19, 2012, 12:36 PM)-MerleOne (November 19, 2012, 02:09 PM)
I've used NTFS-formatted pendrives for a while, and they work fine (as fine as those unrealiable POSs go, anyway). Only trouble I've run into is that NTFS is read-only on OSX, so you can't use it to get data from loose-wristed coworkers :-)-f0dder (November 19, 2012, 02:16 PM)

Nice find. BTW, I don't understand the computation for "7" : 9-sqrt(9)+ ? = 7, what is actually the ?-MerleOne (November 12, 2012, 11:03 AM)
Reading that would be "point nine bar". Some mathematical notations are used differently in different situations. I believe that they mean "ad infinitum" there. So:
nine minus root nine plus point nine bar = 9 - 3 + 0.999999999999999999999... = 7
Math is just wonky sometimes with odd symbol usage. I generally think of "bar" as meaning absolute value or ad infinitum for several digits, with dot being used for 1.-Renegade (November 12, 2012, 11:15 AM)
1979. The Shadows and Light Tour. Here's Joni Mitchell in a performance of her song Free Man in Paris accompanied by Pat Metheny, Lyle Mays, Michael Brecker, Don Alias, and (the much missed) Jaco Pastorius on bass.
With a band lineup like that nothing further needs be said.-40hz (November 02, 2012, 08:32 AM)
Don't know if anybody is into classic Berlin School electronic music. But I think Michael Hoenig's 1977 LP Departure from the Northern Wasteland is still one of the best - if not the best - that genre ever produced. (With apologies to all the Tangerine Dream and Ashra fans out there.)
Pleasant and listenable. The perfect "for headphones" meditation or background music.
It was released with two different covers. (I prefer the one with the balloons myself. )
This "video" is just an audio track. You'll have to let your brain generate its own images for this one. Bon Voyage!-40hz (October 18, 2012, 06:16 AM)
Here's an interesting one from both a musical and a historical perspective.
Back in the early 70s, the ABC network hosted a marvelous concert as part of their "Wide World (fill in the blank)" network brand. In this particular instance it was the Wide World in Concert series, and the performance was Cat Stevens and his 1973 Moon and Star concert.
Note: the audio quality leaves a lot to be desired since it's dubbed off analog video and suffers from the limitations of 70s era recording technology. Not that it really matters. Cat Stevens packs more musical inventiveness and creativity into the seventeen and a half minutes of "Foreigner" than most songwriters generate in their entire career.

Hmmm... no, but maybe this will do?-Edvard (October 31, 2012, 11:08 AM)
