5/2     What's the best (free+batch mode) MP3 to WMA converter out there? I'm
        keeping my MP3s but I want to convert to WMA so that my entire
        collection will fit in my player
        \_ May I ask why you want WMA?  If it's just bitrate, you can transcode
           to a lower-bitrate MP3, and if you pick a good encoder (such as
           LAME with the right settings) the quality will be better than a
           same-bitrate WMA.  For Windows I like RazorLAME for batch processing
           with a nice GUI. -dgies.

        \_ The bride is connected to all the big power people in the area.  I
           wonder if it's a money thing.
           \_ I wonder that as well, although I can't imagine any amount

              of money would be worth the promise of your life to that

5/3     The difference between Tony Blair and Dubya's town hall meetings:
        Late last week, at one of his ritual grillings - this time at the BBC
        television program "Question Time" - the audience booed when he
        appeared and then became even more hostile. "That is a lie! You lied
        to this country, and that is why we can't support you!" shouted one
        young man, accusing Blair of exaggerating the intelligence about
        Saddam Hussein's threat to the world. "What new stealth taxes do you
        intend to introduce first?" asked another. "Mr. Blair, I think you're
        very lucky that we have a weak opposition at the moment," said a
        third, in possibly the kindest remark of the half-hour session.
        "Right, I take [it] that's not a compliment," a perspiring Blair
        answered meekly. In his pour-your-heart-out style, Blair readily
        admits that the wear and tear on him has been "relentless."
        \_ I think this is less of a Bush/Blair contrast than a US/UK contrast.
           \_ You're wrong.  Blair doesn't screen his "town hall" audiences.
              Try getting in to a Bush town-hall when you drive up with a
              "Bring the troops home" bumper sticker.  We the people may be
              partly to blame, with our star-struck attitude toward people
              on the TV, but I think the change came from the top.  Our
              politicians have come to think they don't have to answer to us.
              That's why we have packaged "debates" where the candidates can't
              TALK TO EACH OTHER.  That's why you're not allowed in to a
              "public" meeting with YOUR OWN PRESIDENT if they don't like your
              t-shirt.  This is not in US tradition, though it does feel like
              it's slowly becoming US character.  And that's really depressing
              and sad.
              \_ Labour town hall meetings like that are very likely planned
                 to let Tony take some abuse.  It makes him look better if he
                 sits there looking contrite and sheepish for a bit while
                 people lay into him.  E'ist had a good point--they called
                 them "cathartic".  -John
                 \_ The point is you'll never see someone on national TV
                    telling Dubya "That is a lie!  You lied to this country,
                    and that is why we can't support you.  You dumb monkey!"
                    \_ That's because the election rules are so way different,
                       as is parliamentary seat allocation and third-party
                       presence.  Not saying it's better of worse, but yeah,
                       I'd like to see that on national TV.  -John
        \_ Yeah, but in the United States we get to have guns, so who cares?
          \_ but you can't have bullets..
        \_ Well, we've become a lot more meek since the 70s. People are less
           vocal and are less likely to question the government. We no longer
           show caskets of soldiers, soldiers getting shot in the head,
           and soldiers committing war crimes. We no longer take weeds
           in quantities close to the 70s, and we no longer light up incents
           and peppers. We no longer draw peace sign and instead prefer
           putting on SUPPORT OUR TROOPS stickers that you can buy from
           supermarkets. We no longer have Woodstock, with public figures
           and children's idols singing how they hate the war. 911 has turned
           people to be mindless lemmings, the way Neo Republicans want them to.
           \_ I take it you've only studied late war/post war history in
           \_ The Vietnam War was pretty popular only two years after
              we started committing troops, too. Just wait till the
              Iraq War drags on as long....
           \_ That's nice how you tie rampant drug use as a good thing
              with 9/11 making us slaves. I guess you served with honor.
              \_ BUD DAY thinks your troll fu is weak.

5/3  Dell 20.1" monitor for only $561.
        WSXGA+ resolution (1680 x 1050). Good deal?
        \_ 20" monitor at that low resolution sounds awful to me.
           \_ That's not low, and the monitor is pretty good. I've got
              two. What I wonder is why most people care about a
              widescreen instead of the 2001FP.
              \_ I used both, I like the wide screen much better for a
                 variety of reasons. In fact, I can hardly think of any
                 reason to ever use 4:3 again. -chiry
           \_ Actually, a 20" at any higher resolution is probably
              aweful to use because the pixels are too small to be
              viewed comfortably.  Yes you can increase your font, but
              at least on Windows not everything sizes up nicely, such
              as web pages. What size and resolution do you currently
           \_ My laptop is SXGA (1400x1050) and I use it 90 degrees so that
              I don't have to scroll to the bottom as often. Also it is a
              natural size to read 2 column technical PDFs, which I do
              most of the time.
              \_ On its side?  Oh gawd.
        \_ i bought the monitor a month or so ago for $505+tax. since then
           i've seen deals selling it for ~$425+tax. i like it because it has
           composite and s-video hookups. Also, what resolution do you expect
           on a 20" monitor? Apple's 20" display has the same res.
        \_ Can I plug this into my Mac Mini?
        \_ I should've bought it when it was on sale for $380 a few weeks ago!
        \_ Dont buy it. Wait. I know someone with it, the dimensions suck.
           Wait for price to come down on a more traditional dimensions 1600x1200
           or 1920x
           Wait for price to come down on a more traditional dimensions
           1600x1200 or 1920x
        \_ I say no at that price. That's not a particularly rare deal. And
           I got that monitor and returned it... I was not impressed with it.
           I think it's better to aim for a bit bigger one. I'm pretty picky
           about LCDs though.
        \_ No, not a good deal.  It has been significantly cheaper.

              hate McDonalds.  They really are evil.

        \_ Jack in Box
        \_ Wendys
           \_ I'm NOT going there because they donate a significant amount of
              money to Republicans. Ditto with Walmart and Dell
              \_ On the other hand, the employ a lot of Democrats. I
                 wonder if anyone has ever looked at how much money
                 employees of a company donate versus the company itself.
                 That is, let us say that Bill Gates donates to
                 Republicans, but Paul Allen donates to Democrats while at
                 the same time MSFT itself donates to Greens. Even "red"
                 companies might support "blue" candidates or causes on
                 the whole.
                 \_ Heh, "[Wendys] employ[s] a lot of Democrats." I like
                    that. Seems like that would be true of a lot of fast
                    food joints though.
                    \_ I'd think that any large company would employ large

                 \_ Church's is that good?  I had heard to was dangerous
                    to your health.  Probably a rumor started by KFC. I'll
                    have to try it next time I'm in Oakland.
                    \_ It's not really that good, although it is not bad.
                       I mean, come on, it's fried chicken, it almost has to
                       be at least somewhat good.
                    \_ Church's IS GOOD, except it is as greasy as... grease.
                       Like Homer Simpson says, grease=tasty=good.
                    \_ Church's is dangerous to your health, but what does
                       that have to do with anything?  You almost have to have
                       a blatant disregard for your health if you post on this

5/3     So long, stock options:

           This is from a system administrator at Yahoo, so it is

        "Beijing Concensus": China out-maneuvering politically and
        diplomatically inept Bush-led US.       - Chicom Troll
        \_ "Japanese have not behaved perfectly, but they have apologized
           several times for their wartime aggression."
           Also, my reading of the article is that, politically, China has
           been clumsy, or at least, average.
           been clumsy.
           Saying they're better than Dubya isn't saying much.
           \_ Alright. Not to agree with chicom troll, but I have to.  Sure,
              China is acting politically, and certainly the great leap
              forward killed more Chinese than the Japanese did.  Neither of
              those negate the virtue or lack thereof of Japan's actions.
              Again, I ask you[motd], what would the reaction be if Germany
              changed their textbooks to play down the atrocities committed
              during WW2? What would the reaction be if the German president
              visited and paid his respects to national cemeteries where Nazi
              commanders were buried? -nivra
           \_ this kind of statement really angers me.  Japan never
              issue formal apology in writing.  Japan, as a government,
              never address the issues such as "comfort women."  Company
              profited from the war, and active participation of war crimes
              never set up a trust fund for its behavior. And, more
              importantly, much of Chinese national treasure were taken
              by Japan Imperial Army and never gotten returned.  Much of
              these treasure are sitting in Tokyo's Imperial Palace today.
              Chinese wanted to search the Imperial Palace but it was denied
              by American.  If Japan is not interested in the seat in the
              security consoul in UN, Japan would NEVER issue some of those
              half-hearted apologies at first place.
              Then again, Japan could never get away with any of these crime
              without American's backing.  (Unit 731, and its largest
              biological / chemical warfare in history of mankind... example)
              Most Chinese don't realize that half of the blame lies upon
              \_ So where's all your righteous indignation over the atrocities
                 committed against the Chinese people by the Chinese communist
                 government?  Unlike the pre-war Japanese government, those

                 bother you?
                 \_ Separate issues, the Japanese really should just issue a
                    written apology and get it over with.  That said, the
                    whole "IT USA FAULT!" thing is horseshit, and you might
                    ask where the Chinese apologies for illegal intervention

        \_ Perhaps the mainstream media felt stung by CBS/Rather memo-gate
           and thought a new memo with text like this was definitely forged
           and/or easily dismissed by right-wing commentators as the biased
           perspective of a Labour Party staffer.
           "C reported on his recent talks in Washington. There was a
           perceptible shift in attitude. Military action was now seen as
           inevitable. Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action,
           justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD.
           But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the
           policy. The NSC had no patience with the UN route, and no
           enthusiasm for publishing material on the Iraqi regime's record.
           There was little discussion in Washington of the aftermath after
           military action."

        \_ doesn't LA rank like #45 nationally in freeway meters/capita?
           IOW, the reason the traffic sucks is because there aren't enough
           freeways, and there are too many people.

              people, where there is less traffic. Oh yeah, all of them.

              not more freeways. But if you live there and you want to

                 \_ Average commutes are far shorter in NYC or London.
                    Why is that? Because most people live nearer their

                    anything about Athens, so you might have me there.
                    Yeah, lots of places are making LA-style mistakes.
                    That is nothing to be happy about.
           \_ I blame LA traffic on illegal immigrants driving jalopies (which
              by the way account for 1/3 of the cars you see on freeways) that
              break down, esp. during traffic hours. -illegal immigrant troll

              Harmless" was signed by Adams when he visited Cody's.  I don't
              remember the books well enough to remember what vaguely was
              called plot, but I thought the movie did a good job of tying the
              jokes together with an actual plot.  The account of the whale was
              spot on, and the guide was great. -op
              \_ No, nothing about this movie was "great."  It failed utterly
                 to work as a movie, and worst of all it wasn't even funny.
                 I cracked a few smiles but never once laughed.  Standard
                 Hollywood pap.  I suppose you're going to run right out and
                 catch "The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl In 3D" that
                 was advertised before the show?
                 \_ So, do you have any argument other than "was not!"?
                    \_ I don't need one.  The movie makes Ishtar look decent.
           \_ Them's what makes horse races.
           \_ Having talked to many people, I see a strong correlation between
              people who loved/hated it and people who didn't read/read the
              book. It's like the Berkeley phenomenon, where grad students
              from 3rd world countries thought the quality of Berkeley housing
              was decent, whereas grad students from average American
              suburbs thought it was total trash.
              \_ My dataset includes seven people. All liked the movie. Five had
                 read (and loved) the books. FWIW. -- ulysses
              \- I dunno about that generalization ... i think plenty of "3rd
                 world grad students" come from the "servant employing  class"
                 while plenty of moneyed americans live in coop slime. --psb
                 \_ Yeah.  Cloyne towards the end of a semester could make one
                    pine for the third world.

                    \_ Amusingly, I left Cloyne after 3 semesters for a third
                       world country (and it was an improvement). -emarkp
              \_ Well, I for one loved the books, and I thought the movie was
                 pretty decent. Definitely not "worse than Episode II". But
                 not classic either. Funny, but could've been funnier.
           \_ Or maybe it just sorta
              \_ I think that actually hits it right on the head.  I enjoyed
                 the bits I couldn't quote verbatim best because they were
                 different and, yes, I thought funny.  I enjoyed the movie
                 quite a bit while watching, though afterwards I realized
                 that the bits they added/changed often weren't thought through
                 very well.  I mean.. not that DNA's stuff was always completely
                 thought through, but he usually provided explanations later.
