I can't stand ignorant consumers. Examples: the Bose crowd, the iPod crowd (occasionally forgivable,) the television crowd, the iTunes everyone, etc.

I was trying to give advice about buying headphones to people I know, but they insist on blindly believing Bose makes "the best products." Then they proceed to insult me for thinking otherwise and trying to help. Very discouraging.

No matter how many times I've done it, Final Fantasy VII PC is unbelievably annoying to get running in XP with the high resolution 1280x1024 patch and PSF music patch.

Once it's done, it's the definitive experience, except for lesser quality movies and movie sound/music than in the original Playstation version. Game sounds are also lower quality, mere recordings.

If only Final Fantasy VII for PS3...

Just a note for anyone who is thinking of doing this, do NOT, I repeat, do NOT run with spoons. I broke my wrist after dropping and slipping on the spoon and now its really hard to type.

Just a heads up guys, they're plotting against us.

Wow, tracking down Ys music is a pain in the butt. This is just for one game, too!

Falcom originally released Ys I & II Eternal with 44.1 kHz WAVs. There's a soundtrack for that release that fades out instead of cutting off abruptly (for looping.)

Later Falcom realized that the music in the Ys I portion wasn't arranged very well. They released a "Limited Edition" Ys I & II Complete which is exactly the same as the above except for newly arranged, superior music for the Ys I portion!... Except 22.05 kHz WAVs! WHY???

There's no CD-quality version of that music.
There's an Ys I & Ys II Eternal - Unpublished Music album that has music that's different still.

I'm torrenting the older version of Ys Eternal now for the music because I can't find a working torrent of the OST. A couple seeders and 1.65 GB. Hope it finishes.

Scratch what I said about no existing CD-quality version.

Ys Complete contains the redone new Ys I music, 44.1 kHz WAV. Confusing, eh? I just downloaded it.

I suppose there were multiple versions of varying quality that had different versions of the music as well.

Stupid Falcom. Sweet music, though.

I've been extremely busy with homework, work (I get paid at least), and about twice every other week (often less), Spore. Tomorrow I have a very very big assignment due. Sadly, it didn't occur to until last week that I probably should have worked on this in increments. Now I have to type up the entire thing for my class tomorrow. Not fun.

What is fun is that I bought a cheapo $10 ocarina. So far, I've taught myself how to play Jingle Bells, the ABCs, and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (yes, I realize that those last 2 are the same thing...). It only has 10 holes (one for the mouth, one for the sound, 2 on the bottom, and 6 on top), so it doesn't have much of a range. I'm hoping I can teach myself some Zelda stuff, but I'm inclined to think that the range just isn't enough. That won't stop me from trying though (but homework will:( ).

Just thought I'd mention all the "fun" I've been having while I've disappeared. Mouser X over and out.

I play the ocarina, and getting better all the time, to quote a post a few pages back:

Original Post







I am spending about 415 ($597) on my next ocarina order from Focalink.

I'll then have a triple which will give me the max range that any ocarina company has ever made.

Obviously I have learnt some zelda songs, but a 8 hole ocarina might not be able to play all zelda songs, but it might be able to play cut down versions of some. 8 holes should give at least 8 diatonic notes, assuming it is tuned well and that it has 8 diatonic notes and not tuned in half steps (Not that I know an Ocarina like that - thats not to say that Ocarinas have to be diatonic) All of my Ocarinas (Only 3 right now =/) are fully chromatic. My Alto C is A4-F6, My Soprano C is A5-F7, and my Double Alto C is A4-C7.

Zeldas Lullaby is imposible on an 8 hole though, unless you only want to do the beginning 3 notes like you play on OoT.
