Has it yet occurred to you that all this stuff just might be a load of completely made up nonsense that uses words from physics jargon in contexts where they mean nothing?

has it occurred to you that the same could be said for anything you say? :P

Samples/Kontakt

Okay guys I have another quick question to you guys that use big sample libraries. Is there any downside to installing the 100gb of kontakt and battery samples on an external harddrive? I don't tend to use sampled instruments that much anyways, so it seems better to just keep it on an external for when I need it rather than clog up my laptop's hdd.

Weirdness

I know there are other PC gamers here... I wanna know if what just happened to me has ever happened to anyone else...

A few days ago, I noticed my PC started running really, really slow... Like every 3 seconds it would freeze up for a second, and it was doing this constantly. At first I suspected 1 of 2 things... And update I did to Flash, or a Windows Update, because I did both of those the morning of the day it started happening.

So I defragged my computer, ran virus scans with 2 different programs, defrag was long overdue, but wasn't the cause, and neither virus scan came up with anything at all.

So today, I ran the defrag again just... I dunno, because... And I noticed it got hung up on a file in my Team Fortress 2 folder... Then it dawned on me that it always seemed to get real bad when I tried opening Steam... So bad, that Steam would crash or it'd take like 10 min to open. And so I decided to try something, I opened up steam... it crashed, opened it up again, taking like 5 min, then I very slowly went to my library and deleted Team Fortress 2.

The second TF2 was uninstalled... my computer was fine, and I haven't had a problem since.

The only time I ever have Steam open is when I'm playing a game I own on Steam... and I haven't played TF2 in ages. Any idea why what should have been a completely idle file would have been screwing with my PC so much? And anyone else ever have something like this happen before?

I was scared it was a hardware failure...

If the library doesn't require key registration then only problem is slower loading time, maybe. But it would be fine with key registration too. Just don't change the library folder's locations once you installed, auto searching in Kontakt is painful. All my EastWest libraries are on a external removable hdd.

Well I mean the NI installer gives me an option to pick a different and I've heard of people running it on external drives before. So maybe I'll just give it a shot and if it doesn't work for me, I'll just put em on my hdd

This is almost definitely a bad sector on your hard drive. Every time the computer attempts to access it, everything hangs on it and will continue to hang on it for about 15 minutes, because that's what the timeout is on the file operation for some insane reason. My brother once had a similar problem, but instead of being annoying, it was a critical system file accessed during login, so his computer would boot up and then freeze for no apparent reason.

You should look into getting a tool for fixing bad sectors and run that (and by "fix" it just prevents the bad sector from being accessed). Everything should return to normal after that.

So... 2 questions...

Does that mean my HDD is going bad? I didn't get this thing all that long ago. Or is it a software problem?
and..
Why would my PC be accessing the TF2 folder when I'm not only not playing the game... but I don't even have Steam open? I mean... If I had Steam open at least, it would probably be updating the game from time to time... but when it's not open, there's literally 0 reason for my PC to be wanting to access that location. Unless it's due to some tech mumbo jumbo I don't understand.

Technically, yes, but a bad sector is just a risk thing, so the older an HDD gets, the higher the chance of a sector going bad. The thing is, the risk of a sector going bad for a new HDD isn't zero, its just really, really unlikely, so for all I know your hard drive got hit by a cosmic ray.

I honestly have no idea, but I also wouldn't be surprised if it was still somehow causing problems. I've seen too much crazy shit to put anything past windows. It could be that there are multiple bad sectors, in which case my answer to the above question changes into "why on earth would your new HDD be having multiple bad sectors?"

Basically, if there was just one bad sector, it was probably a fluke. If your new HDD actually has multiple bad sectors, panic (and buy a new hard drive from a different manufacturer).

Wow the date was great! We all had a blast and the girl I was with was very interesting to talk to. She is from China and knows very little about music, but she is eager to learn. I am taking her to a Jazz Bar later this week with her friend and my friend again for some relaxing and chill food and music. Then we will check out the downtown area. So far so good! Who knows, this may turn into something. We will certainly be friends, if anything!

Awesome man, good for you! If she wants to learn about what you're into it definitely means she's interested in you.

Sounds almost too good to be true though, she might have a dick.

Well, apparently she has a boyfriend back in China. *ahhh man* I am not going to make ANY moves at all, including asking her out on an official date. Im not the type to corrupt relationships, noooo sir. Right now I want to make it as casual as possible. And you know what? I like it to be casual. If anything, her friend is actually into me. Plus, her other friend plays the piano like I do and wants to meet me. If I keep it up and stay myself while remaining confident, I will make a great impression, great friends, and may meet someone to start a relationship with.There are many possibilities here. Im not looking to ruin a relationship, nor am necessarily looking to start one...

Simply put, I'm not worrying about it. We are going to a Jazz bar later and drinking. If she ends up making a move on me I'm bringing up her relationship, but she came off as being a very dedicated and sweet girl, so I doubt that will happen. I respect her for that.

Whatever happens, happens. Im having fun either way! Man I can't wait to introduce these chinese girls to Jazz lol. They have never heard it before... nor have they ever heard electronic music. Good God. MUSICAL SCORE.

That's a great attitude to have :)
Hope you'll have lots of fun! :D

And now that we're talking about girls..
There's this super cute girl at my school and she sings in a band.. i've been interested in her from day one, but i never really had an opportunity to talk to her. And yesterday, out of nothing, she added me on Facebook and today while walking to the train station i got to talk to her.. she asked me if i have a girlfriend (which i don't) and i asked her if she has a boyfriend (she doesn't).
How cool :3

Facebook is a great way to talk to people. You should talk to her on Facebook and get to know her a bit. Then, when the time is right, ask her out to eat somewhere, grab a cup of coffee, you know, stuff like that. Im using facebook to get to know girls, clients, business partners, and friends. Its a great tool and less awkward than texting, in my opinion. Good luck square :D

Although Facebook can be a useful tool, i still prefer to get to know people face-to-face. I don't really use facebook chat.
Either way, she gonna be mine >:-D And thanks ^___^

Man, I can't stand that shit. I even deleted my Facebook account because of the whole fakeness.

Don't get me wrong, I love instant messaging for talking with close friends, but if I was trying to kick it off with a chick I had just met, I'd have to do it face to face. I mean, if chatting online is your ONLY option, then yes, go for it. But to miss the opportunities to talk face to face, and to only talk to them online, I find quite cowardly and never as satisfactory.

And one thing that can be very annoying, is that text can never be interpreted the right way. With close friends that know you, this is alright. However, what you type may come across as something totally different to someone who does not know you very well.

I have learned how to create megaman style toms and such in famitracker, but by god I got the idea of trying to emulate the protoman whistle but I just can't! im so hard pressed on this for some reason. I mean, if im going to practice some stuff I may as well practice on a simple jingle right?

AAAAARGH! I have screwed around with the arpegio and pitch but to no avail! Then again I don't know what 1-15 does anyway soo...
