Remember last time they changed this? The new one... it's going to take some getting used to.

What Happens If You Copy An Audio File While You're Playing It?

Nothing? Can it affect quality of the copy? Can issues occur?

Does it depend on the player - if it caches the file while you're playing - and as such you actually don't copy the same file that's playing? Or is there a difference in audio files compared to other files, in that certain portions of the file can be copied at the same time as certain other portions are played, and so the transfer fetches the portions not currently in play until the transfer is complete, seemingly entirely unaffected by playback?

Is it a software or a hardware thing? Did copying audio files in use work with DOS. or even Windows XP?

And does it depend on the format? Can you copy some but not others? MP3 seems to work, haven't tried WAV, FLAC, APE, M4A....

Internet didn't have the answer for this, so I'm just leaving the open question here.

If you have the answer, do tell.

Downloading A File...

Infinity Download Time/Zero Transfer Rate

It is downloading though...

HAPPY CAPS LOCK DAY!

MAKE THE WORLD KNOW THAT IT'S A DAY TO CELEBRATE! OR JUST MAKE IT SEEM LIKE YOU'RE ANGRY EVEN IF YOU'RE NOT!

OR BE AS ANGRY AS YOU WANT CAUSE NO ONE KNOWS YOU ARE TODAY IF THEY DO KNOW WHAT DAY IT IS! HUZZAH!

PERSONALLY I'M TOTALLY OK. EVERYTHING'S GREAT. REALLY.

HAVE A GOOD ONE!

The Opera Problem

A while back I switched from FireFox to Opera, as the former was just getting slower and slower (Read: More and more bloated and incapable of running properly on somewhat dated hardware), and for a while it's been great but...

Lately pages start loading forever. And they do load forever. Every new tab I open loads forever. Sometimes one tab works, and I can send a reply or similar if that's what I'm currently typing out, but all tabs after that just load forever, forever, forever...

I close the browser and restart it.

Sometimes that works, sometimes it doesn't. If it doesn't I then open the task manager and kill the process manually, and then restart it again, and so it works again.

It's a fine browser otherwise - even if I'm still not a huge fan of the bookmarks/history being locked to a side panel - but this one thing is a bit of a bother. Don't really want to move all the way to Chrome though, even if they are both based on the same engine now.

Trying to keep personal integrity at least somewhat intact but this is turning into a real soap Opera.

Flash Player Recommendations

The Flash Player Uninstall Recommendation Window

Recommending me to uninstall the player from my computer entirely huh.

Adobe's been planning to shut down Flash at the end of the year for some time now, and the main browsers have all agreed to comply and remove support for the plugin as well, but for some reason I didn't figure they'd do anything about the locally installed version.

I'm keeping this though. Unless they force an uninstall. If so maybe the best solution's to install an older version with updates turned off, as to keep things like this from happening on their own.

Considering how forcibly Microsoft update things these days I do wonder how Adobe will handle this when the time comes though, hopefully they'll choose a softer approach; at least give the user the option to keep going with their software forever if they really want to...
