Bye bye MP3: You sucked the life out of music. But vinyl is just as warped

Re: It's 'only' 16 bit and 44.1KHz CD

People always say this but as someone who has done a lot of recording I disagree. Higher frequencies don't seem to add a lot but the difference between 16 and 24 bit has always seemed clearly audible to me. What I do have trouble distinguishing is between a good mp3 and a CD. MP3 is an excellent format, one reason it is so astonishingly popular.

GCHQ's spy death riddle shines light on UK hacker war

most plausible explanation

If you were a hitman, could there be a more showy- off, f*** you, nasty way to kill someone?

"here's someone dead in a bag, with no way they could have got in themselves, and the police are going to fumble around for weeks eventually proving themselves to be totally impotent to find out what happened, how safe do you spies feel now?"

I fail to believe that a maths prodigy, spy, in a safe house, would have invited a random stranger to zip him up in a bag. It strains credibility.

I feel deeply sorry for him and his family, in my view he died for his country in the most horrible of ways and it is terrible the way his name has been blackened. Who among us would want our browsing records to undergo that kind off scrutiny.

How about a bit of sensitivity, el reg?

Stating the obvious

I don't understand.. perhaps I am too "illogical"....why there is so much self righteousness from the pro- nuclear side. OK yes, the world will recover from this, yes, other forms of power also have risks, etc, balance of risks and gains in energy policy...

But to be honest it wasn't very good was it? It's kind of amusing watching people falling over themselves to avoid saying this!
