Re: Tell a joke

I just got off the phone with a friend who lives in North Dakota. He said that since early this morning the snow has been nearly waist high and is still falling. The temperature is dropping way below zero and the north wind is increasing. His wife has done nothing but look through the kitchen window...

Re: ~The Wealth of Nations, Bk 5, by Adam Smith - kd

Grrr! I recorded section 13 a couple of nights ago and went to do the proofing this evening. That's when I noticed that there was a very noticeable and constant buzzing all through the recording due to my not unplugging my laptop. (I have to have it unplugged or else, well, or else there is a consta...

Re: Samson vs. Yeti

Well, I had almost decided on purchasing the Yeti when I came across the Audio Technica AT2020 . These two mics have been flip flopping in the #1 and #2 spots on Amazon for condenser microphones. Both are similarly priced. The main differences I can see are: -The Yeti has a headphone jack while the ...

Re: Contest help!

Are you asking about the Blogging for Books program in general? I believe it can be any book published by WaterBrook Multnomah published at any time. They have a list of books from which you can choose one to have them send to you for review. I'm not sure, but I think for this particular contest you...

Re: my pauses are tooooo long ?

But while I'm listening, I try to determine if a longer or shorter pause is needed between sentences/paragraphs. Makes my editing time much lo...

Re: Samson vs. Yeti

Thanks for the responses. I'm leaning more toward the Yeti than the Samson but still have a little while before purchasing. Thanks again!
