more Pro Suckage

Let me put this to you dear readers simply; smaller is never better.

Bigger is pretty much always better. Extra is always a plus and bonus is never viewed in anything but the most positive terms.

"lite", "nano", "mini", "Jr." are all LESS THEN something that probably came before it.

If I wanted something edited, truncated, sawed off or shrunk I would have to hand in my "Proud To Be An American" card and hop over the border into Canada.

So next time some weenie in a sales job tries and con you with the virtues of the improved tininess of something, tell em you want it big, loud and full of action because that's what makes life worth living.

Fuck you, I want the atomic bomb!

next please

After installing Pro Tools LE 8.O into my new Mac Pro I discovered that 2 Gigs of RAM was not enough to keep my mouse from spazzing out. The joy was only exacerbated by the lovely inspection of my new MBox2 Pro which feels like it was made by not just cheap but retarded Chinese slave labor.

I give up.

4 more gigs coming whenever the fuck the shipper decides to get around to it. Meanwhile I'll enjoy the speediness of the improved Ethernet speed and download some zombie porn.

it's not pro

1. If it's made entirely out of plastic
2. If it can't be serviced
3. If it's designed to take up very little space in your dorm room

This is is the first installment of what I imagine will be an ongoing bitch fest over turning a new computer into a usable recording device.

Enjoy my pain.
