so doing this project this month, this year, was a no-go. i got one track finished and a bass loop for another track that was 2/3 done (would’ve needed another loop i think, and then just put together) and 2 other half-finished tracks and that’s about as far as i got. also included in this… Continue reading rpm: we do not have liftoff
one song down. updated (finished) version of North Korea called North Korea II (of all things). added some jello biafra samples and synth to the original track. it was intended to have a sax solo with it, but sax is sort of out of the question (unfortunately) for this project since a lot of what… Continue reading rpm update
i didn’t post yesterday, but the follow up is:i moved the home folder to my other partition, which i cleared, and reinstalled. everything is working now. a lot of stuff i had before was still there, and a lot isn’t. i spent much of yesterday’s at home time running various installs and updates and more… Continue reading back in the saddle

[more=there’s a lot more posted behind this link, but it’s kinda geeky, so be forewarned…there’s pretty screenshots tho.] the good: amaroK amaroK is a multimedia player (altho, thus far i’ve only used it for music). it works much the same way my ampache-powered page does. you create… Continue reading amarok rocks my world. cedega, not so much.
