So, 99% of all board game money sucks. The last 1%? It sucks somewhat less.

I want high quality replacements. I want hundreds of thousands of dollars of near-banknote-quality bills... they should probably NOT be made with Crane's US currency quality paper, or at least not with the red and blue security threads, or the mylar strip. A watermark would be nice.

They should be artistically designed, perhaps using design elements from many famous games, or maybe just abstract art.

Does anything even CLOSE to this exist?

Does anyone want to make it exist? :)

During a normal day at work, I expect to receive audio input from:
iPod, personal cell, work cell (==desk phone), work PC (VOIP is popular here), and personal laptop.
I expect to send audio (speak in to. :) the middle 3 of those, and maybe all of the last 4.

WHY is there no desktop mixing console that deals with the proliferation of devices - more so, that handles both input AND output?

(If I'm wrong, PLEASE let me know.)

(I could deal with a 4-way mixer, if need be.)

(I thought I'd posted about this here before, but going over my last year of posts (<90) seems to show that I haven't.)

This struck me a few days ago. I don't know why it took so long to sink in.

1 fullest-length CD ~= 700MB
10 = 7GB
100 = 70 GB
1000 = 700 GB
2000 = 1.4 TB
http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20080710-seagate-breaks-terabyte-barrier-with-new-1-5tb-hard-drive.html
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148337
http://www.lse.org/~jailbait/cds.html

$400 (2 drives + raid1 case) = mirror copy of ALL OF MY CDs,
uncompressed.

I love the future, but I still want my flying car!

(Yes, I know the drives format to about 1.3TB, and I know I'm ignoring
various binary vs decimal conversions and lots of rounding, but not all
my cds are full length, and I don't have 2000, anyway, only 1500.)

Does anyone have an mp3 of Weekend-Only World, by T.J. Burnside-Clapp?

I have it on tape someplace, and I have her hand-written original lyrics someplace, too...
but neither of them are easily findable, and even if I find the tape, it's hard to play it.

Thanks...
