Re: Analogue Synth Reccomendations

Without knowing your budget, it's really hard to make a recommendation. There's a lot of ground between a Monotron and a Buchla.

If you are willing to get your hands dirty, you can *build* your own modular. Check out musicfromouterspace.com, and see my sig for a couple of project logs.

I lived in Austin for 45 years -- just moved to Rhode Island this summer. Let me know if you end up heading there, I will be glad to rant about things you must see/do/eat.

Re: SQL Question...

re: SP My dislike about SQL Server in particular is that everyone seems to want crazy-complicated T-SQL scripts for stuff that should really be done with a scripting language making DB calls instead. I don't know why this is more prevalent in SQL Server environments than others, but that's my anecdo...

Re: SQL Question...

Especialy handy if you work with a framework that doesnt generate the schema for you While we're talking religion, I recommend the OP generate his own schemas until he finally reaches the point where he says "If I have to generate another schema I'll shoot someone." If you can't do it manually, you...

Re: SQL Question...

Yeah, as I mentioned in my post, if you're in financial, you're pretty much Oracle. I don't hate Oracle, it's just overkill most of the time. If you know it's a 100% Microsoft workplace, SQL Server can make great sense. Hell, *Access* makes great sense in a lot of those situations :) @H2 I spent one...

Re: SQL Question...

trouble is with mysql is that not many people use it in industrial strength applications You mean, like Facebook? The Fortune 50 (not 500, 50) that I work for is almost exclusively a MySQL shop. Unless you *know* that the company you work at (or want to work at) is an Oracle shop (financial service...

Re: coffee drinkers ?

I've since replaced the small iRoast roaster with a much larger Behmor 1600 that allows me to roast almost a pound at a time.

Re: SQL Question...

Oh Cygwin, how I hate thee. :) I was really happy when the whole "VM" thing took off, so I could easily have a proper Linux box in my Windows environment. Just to finish up a thought for the OP: Using mysqldump is a fantastic way to learn a lot about how to correctly model a database. If you're work...

Re: SQL Question...

The best way to learn it is to get VMWare, or Parallels, or whatever virtual machine environment you want. Download a turnkey LAMP image (http://www.turnkeylinux.org/lampstack). Boot that puppy up and start playing. This way, you're using SQL in the context you're most likely to IRL -- in an Apache ...

Re: 2xmonitor support: wishful thinking?

I think that, were it in there, it would have been shouted from the rooftops by now.

So yes, sadly, it's probably wishful thinking.

Re: Need expert advice on audio interface.....

I recently got the HS80s when my old Tannoys finally blew up. These things sound fantastic, and have no need at all for the subwoofer (at least in my room). I can make the whole house resonate with my Little Phatty... The monitors are the ultimate interface between the machine and the listener. If y...

Re: analogue synth purchase help!

With your budget, I'd grab an Analog Four as well. You can stack tracks until they release polyphony. :) If you must have poly, look at the Mopho x4.
