Default Re: Anti-piracy or anti-customer ?

Thanks for "clarifying" that!

So, why not not get on to something more interesting and tell us what '09 has in store for you; and show us some baby pis as well!

It is still tempting though. You can pick records up for a song these days.
Vinyl actually went nowhere, is loved by many, and has seen a recent resurgence. Pearl Jam has sent out an exclusive vinyl christmas single to club members every year since the 90s. Every major Hip Hop and Punk release EVER* has come out on Vinyl. A resurgence in the last few years has led to new heights of demand for new releases and re-issues, but nobody knows if the growth will last or if this is just short term trend in what was already a speciality market. Whatever the future, this a great time for vinyl, lots of great stuff being produced.

I agree with this. There's nothing "inferior" about it.
Something else in particular I consider special about the sound of vinyl is that whole eras of music were recorded with the intention the listener would hear it played from a turntable.

If you didn't have me on ignore, you'd see that we've actually agreed on something. Shock horror.
