Re: How do I test my home internet speed?

It might be your computer. In Windows 7, you can check Network I/O using the Resource Monitor. Right-click the taskbar at the bottom of the screen and select Task Manager. On the Performance page, click Resource Monitor. I thought I just posted this information, but I don't see it, so I'll try again.

Re: The Song Fight Excuse List

Suddenly I can go outside without wearing boots.
Kenny Rogers called and wants his song back.

Two Baked Out of My Gourd lyrics threads

Appropriately enough, I guess. :-)

Any simple way to consolidate, or shall I just copy my lyrics to the new one?

Re: 3/14/16 closets

Hillbilly, if you're still reading, that was disgusting. I'm going to assume it came from substance abuse, because you've hinted about that. jb was right to ban you, but don't let it deepen the spiral. If you need help, get help -- OK?

Dec 24, 2015 A warm day in Ottawa

It's sunny and 16C outside (around 61F). The previous record was 46F (1996).

"The temperature typically varies from -9°C to -6°C and is rarely below -18°C or above 2°C."

Re: YOUR DEFINITION MAY VARY...(Meat Grinder Reviews)

Every song in this fight has merit !! no bullshit, I really have enjoyed listening to them ... THANKS for the present !!! JamesOwens ... James this is soooo 'no matter what shape'... I didn't get the reference, even though I was alive and learning to play bass in 1966. Glad I googled it! [youtube]?...

Re: YOUR DEFINITION MAY VARY...(Meat Grinder Reviews)

If I may ask, what is "ambience" and how would one go about using it? I'm actually reduced to recording everything on my iPhone right now (albeit with a analogue/digital interface and condenser mic) so options are limited. . . Ambience is Number Nine on the list of top-rated free plugins at http://...

Re: YOUR DEFINITION MAY VARY...(Meat Grinder Reviews)

Charles and Pierre Etienne : Good rhythmic interplay as always, and tasteful playing on all the instruments. The singing isn't quite as strong as on some other tracks, but given the subject matter, that may just be musical illustration at work. Pretty good composition, nothing spectacular except fo...

Re: YOUR DEFINITION MAY VARY...(Meat Grinder Reviews)

My horses in this particular race: Repair My Heart and And Counting . The first one didn't do anything for me, and I honestly don't see what it had to do with the title. I guess you had to be there. I liked the second one. If the title had anything remotely to do with jungles, I would consider it a...

. . . Or lyrics at all, for that matter. . . That's true, but in my experience, if a fight has an instrumental entry, at least one reviewer will treat the entry as disqualified. And I understand why. Decent lyrics are at least half the battle. Besides, if the song has no words, what connects it to ...

That would be the song title.

As others have noted in the past, the rules don't require you to use the song title. You just have to be inspired by the title; and as I recall, Fluffy mentioned being inspired.

Some juicy entries in this fight. Watch out for Sockpuppet, Inflatable Vegetables, and Omega Unstroppable -- unless, of course, Charlie plays guitar takes it in an upset win.

Re: You Mean We Do Reviews? (You Mean The World)

Berkeley Social Scene -- I like all the individual parts -- especially the bass -- but somehow this isn't coming together for me; it seems to drag a bit, as if it's just going through the motions. The arrangement is clear, maybe even a little sparse. Charles and Pierre Etienne -- The rhythmic synco...

I too was inspired, and will be in with something a little weird. The recording is pretty much done, but I might add a thing or two.
