Sug, I didn't know you were on Twitter.

I'm sure Big Mike was shtruggling with her incoherent rage emotions when Sundown was talking about Corn Pop and the black kids fascinated with stroking his leg hair. Because that's 100% racial enlightenment.

One is reminded of the classic doctor who episode, robot, long story short unit fires their new fangled beam weapon but instead of vaporizing him it makes her gigantic. Thats what never trumpers are facing today.

Cap’n, not sure if it works in your situation, but Sonos can read my NAS drive with about 500 albums, as well as a TuneIn feed to their near infinite source of stations. I have both a base unit that feeds my main house system as well as two satellite remote speakers. They can sync to each other, or run independently. Never checked to see if it can read a cloud source.

Captain Hate

When Gaylord was irritating me I pretty much gave up on Failure Theater coming up with someone who could do the same thing to the progs, let alone make it much much worse. That's why DJT is an outsider.

Captain Hate

That would probably work, MT, but I don't have WiFi speakers.

they eventually died as a result of his having the coronavirus.

Old Lurker

Boy, Cap'n, as a non-Apple person I cannot tell you how hard it was for me to get my tunes organized into a standard DOS file structure "Music>Artist>Album>Songs" so that I could just open a folder and let it play through. Since I do use iPads and iPods, some use of iTunes was unavoidable to get tunes onto those devices.

The biggest lesson I learned was to never, ever, under any circumstance EVER click on any button that looked or smelled like "Let Apple Organize Your Files"!

Having learned that the hard way with music, I quickly saw the same applied to how Apple likes to mess with the storage of pictures.

I hate them.

CH-

I’m currently researching “Plex”, for those with track addictions. Sonos has a track cap, and you need the Component module (with mandatory Alexa!) to run it through an A/V receiver. I just upgraded my Denon, reluctantly, but now am ecstatic because of the embedded tool sets. Will read the files directly from the network folder, in DOS path form. Will post the link to the unit. Can’t endorse it highly enough.

Captain Hate

OL,

Back when I still used an IBM type PC, I ran everything through iTunes including downloaded files. It had perfect flexibility for whatever I wanted.

WHAT I WANT TO DO SHOULD NOT BE DIFFICULT!

Narciso

Did they import windows vista

Captain Hate

Thanks, Mel.

CH, doesn't answer your question but I know that, at least a few years ago when I looked, there is no android FLAC player.

Heh.
Mine is intermittent fasting that I cap off every day around 2PM with a nice slug of Tillamook toffee, caramel, butter crunch, latte, somethin er other ice cream, thanks to Porch turning me onto it.

Melinda

Alexa can be turned off on the base unit, as there is no mike present until you plug one in. The HEOS app was the clincher for me, after the fact. The AV unit itself is WiFi connected.

https://www.abt.com/product/136199/Denon-7.2-Channel-Full-4K-Ultra-HD-AV-Receiver-With-Amazon-Alexa-Voice-Control-AVRX1600H.html

It has capabilities to handle 2 Active Subwoofers, not Passive (the 0.2 part of 7.2), which isn’t clearly laid out in the literature. And I have none, yet. I’m still at 5.0.

my lips and nipples are a bit red, swollen, and raw.

Ralph, if you check out Meghan McCain's Twitter feed I believe you may find some helpful advice. :)

(Not to make light of the problem...)

Old Lurker

OK Mel. If one wants to feel really really stupid, click on Mel's 12:09 "Denon" link, then click on "Show more features".

Then scan down the list of features and raise your hand if you understand what the hell any of them are.

Whatever was wrong with "Turn the big knob until it clicks then turn it further to make it louder?"

Now get off my lawn.

:-)

jimmyk

I thought "the darkest secrets of the universe" were what the hell the FBI was doing in 2016-17. At least I can't find anything in the NYT about it.

jimmyk

Goes without saying, but the one-minute trip from the bedroom to the coffee pot is a bit less grueling when I haven't taken any sleep meds the night before.

And not to belabor the topic, but another thing about Benadryl is that about 10-15% of the time if I take one, I get a weird opposite effect, like I'm strung out on caffeine and can't sleep to save my life.

Narciso

Sometimes it does take a long time to kick in.

hrtshpdbox

...there is no android FLAC player.

Or Windows, or whatever non-Apple is called.

Manuel Transmission

Sonos does some stuff via BT as well as Ethernet and WiFi so I would think there are ways to tie to phone or computer sourcing. I’ve been in touch with the techies on a couple of issues and they were very helpful.

OL-

After installing it, I’ve had a lot of fun with the old click bait adage, “I wonder what THIS does?”, but it’s always reversible and limited to the unit’s tool set, especially in the HEOS app. Signed up for more free streaming services that I had no idea existed, such as Deezer.

jimmyk

Ok, so this is family-related but touches on some favorite JOM themes: Crazy siblings, TDS, and leftist projection.

For about 20 years my mother has had this handyman to help her with repairs around the house (she's 93 and lives by herself in the house we grew up in). He's never shown the slightest inclination of exploitation or anything, and my mother is extremely wary and suspicious of that sort of thing. As far as I can tell he's a saint.

The only issue is now and then he disappears for a few weeks. He did so recently, and my mother related that prior to the disappearance, he had talked politics, and it turns out he's MAGA, and said things like "Barr is brilliant," etc. My mother didn't really engage, since as noted she hates Trump and everything associated with him. But she was sure this disappearance was because she didn't voice agreement with him.

I said, "Ma, just e-mail him again and say 'I hope everything's ok with you, haven't heard from you in a while,' etc. Sure enough, he wrote back with a warm note and said he'd call her this week.

Meanwhile my brother has decided that this guy is dangerous, and he warned my mother not to contact him again. This after he's been such a help for the last 20 years. Why is he dangerous? Because he said positive things about Barr, Trump, etc. Maybe Qanon, according to my brother. So if she's persuaded by my brother, she'll have no handyman, or have to find someone else and who knows if she can find someone as great as this guy has been.

Windows Media Player and whatever piece of crap Redmond is trying to foist to replace it both support FLAC on Windows. I use VLC or Windows Media Player on Windows, and on Android I use VLC; it supports FLAC, though I mostly use mp3 to allow for more stuff on the disk.

TM: "Trump is pretty sick, or maybe he isn't."

This says, about Windows Media Player (and I'm pretty sure it applies to WinAmp as well):

" WMP 12 isn't compatible with the popular lossless format, FLAC. However, by installing a FLAC codec, you can quickly add support not only in WMP 12 but in any other software that plays music and isn't FLAC-aware."

https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-play-flac-files-in-windows-media-player-12-2438876#:~:text=Windows%20Media%20Player%20(WMP)%2012,media%20player%20built%20into%20Windows.&text=WMP%2012%20isn't%20compatible,isn't%20FLAC%2Daware.

I'm pretty sure you still can't utilize playlists, though, and have to cue up each track one at a time.

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

Per TCs 7:51, I'm guessing he now has a north Rhode Island accent.
Until I read comments in a YouTube yesterday I didn't know RI has (at least) two accents. The north is closer to MA, the south closer to NY.

Dave (in MA)

hrtshpdbox, I must have added the FLAC coded, then. Don't recall. I don't use playlists, so I can't comment on that.

I have my music organized as a directory c:\music with a subdirectory for each artist, and subdirectories for each album, and individual non-album tracks are just placed in the artist directory. I have a copy of C:\music on a NAS connected to my router and I keep them in sync by hand. I don't use "folder" because the operating system has a DIR command, but not a FOL command, and I'm old. 🙂

Dave (in MA)

The NFL has been nagging coaching staffs about not having PPE and fining personnel for non-compliance. The reportedly had a conference call about it over the weekend, so last night at one point Bill Belichick pulled down his mask to reveal... another mask, just like Capt. Rex Kramer (Robert Stack) in Airplane! with his multiple pairs of shades.

This is the guy who bristled about being forced to wear the gear of whatever Chinese-made brand the league was partnering with to the point where he'd show up with the neck ripped open and the sleeves torn off, so the mask-on-mask thing is probably another FU to the league.

Several of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, including Chairman Mark Milley, have moved to quarantine after learning that they were likely exposed to the coronavirus in recent days.

Admiral Charles Ray, vice commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard, tested positive for coronavirus on Monday. Ray experienced symptoms over the weekend, and attended multiple meetings with members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in recent days, CNN reported.

I have an idea for "Empty Chair DAY".

PERHAPS we need to all put out signs - or at least post it on Facebook and Twitter that says:
