Home Music Servers - a HiFi Ipod in Living Rooms: Listen to Your CD and MP3 Collection Everywhere in the Home

Tags:
(Posted on Jul 25, 2017 at 12:37PM by Frank Hornsby)
Home music servers deliver this and more – the kids can play their CDs on their computers at the same time as a different selection is playing in the living room. Alternatively, all players can be synchronised, laying the same track everywhere.

There are several competing systems on the market, most follow the principle of having one machine which holds all the music, and one or more music players networked to it which plug into a home audio system.

Sonos – Two rooms from $999
Sonos make a system which will play music stored on PC/Mac folders or a standalone network drive and play out to any number of zones, connected either via WiFi or wired Ethernet. Although a computer is needed to configure the system, it is not needed while playing the music as long as the music storage and Sonos system is switched on.
The entry level system is a two-room base system. This includes an amplified “Zone Player 120” which can drive loudspeakers directly and an unamplified “Zone Player 90” which is designed to work with an existing hifi system in a different room. A remote control is provided which has a screen to allow flexible selection of tracks – this connects to Sonos via the WiFi network. Sonos can be extended with more players and more remote controls, and can synchronize players for seamless audio between rooms.

Logitech Squeezebox (was Slim Devices) from $240
Squeezebox uses a PC running its (free) software as a server, so it needs the PC to be running when playing music, though the player is of course networked, either via WiFi or wired ethernet. The Squeezebox Classic is the cheapest entry level player, and one server can run a number of players, which can be synchronised or play independently in a similar way to the Sonos.

Installing the server and configuring it is a little bit more tricky than the other systems, since the server has to be loaded onto the user’s computer. Unlike NaimNet and Sonos, this is therefore not under Logitech’s control and therefore interfacing problems can arise in some cases. The product works well when set up right. Logitech make a range of players, from the Duet where the display is in the remote control and the player is a display-free black box, to the $2000 Transporter high-end player.

NaimNet £3200 (UK price)
From established high end British hifi manufacturer Naim Audio, NaimNet is a standalone server which can stream to other parts of the system. The entry level product is the NS01 server which holds music on an internal hard disk (about 600CDs capacity) and can rip CDs using the local CD drive as well as playing music from other networked sources. The player can display the interface on a TV, PC or attached PC screen.

Ripping the CD Collection
All require the user to copy the music from their CDs to the system hard disk, or place an existing MP3 collection on the server. Customers of music bought from Apple Itunes are generally out of luck. The digital rights management and proprietary nature of Itunes prevents use of purchased songs on other systems.

The best sound quality is had from ripping CDs, either using Itunes or preferably something like Exact Audio Copy, and keeping the audio as uncompressed WAVs or losslessly compressed FLAC files. Lossless compression only reduces file size about 40% but does not throw away any information.

Ripping CDs is a tedious job, and ripping to an uncompressed format futureproofs is work. It is possible to fetch album, artist and track names automatically from Internet databases which reduces the tedium and makes the music database searchable by album, artist, song title and sometimes genre or album year.

Music Servers – Home Audio for the Ipod Generation
The Ipod showed the way and gave listeners the convenience of their entire music collection at their fingertips. Networked music servers do this for the home stereo, with a great improvement in sound quality. The market is still fluid, and to some extent the ease of setting up is inversely proportional to price in the systems reviewed. Logitech makes the system cheaper but the cost is having to install the software on the customer’s PC. Sonos and NaimNet take this variable under their own control, easing installation.

Any networked music system is only as good as the network – the author’s experience is in a residential area where more than 5 other wifi networks can be seen then the audio can stutter on playback. Wired Ethernet removes this uncertainty, though it is still best to avoid the very cheapest wired network switches for reliability.

A Monk for the post of UP CM- Another Modi game in Uttar Pradesh

Tags:
(Posted on Apr 12, 2017 at 01:44AM by Frank Hornsby)

Narendra Modi, the current Prime Minister of India was elected in 2014. Since his election as the Prime Minister, there have been 15 state elections in the country, out of which Modi's party (Bharatiya Janata Party - BJP) has won in 8 states. After winning in those states, the party has chosen relatively new faces for the post of chief minister. In the recent Uttar Pradesh State Elections, the BJP defeated the competitive parties in a historic margin, winning in 312 out of 403 constituencies.


Apart from this sensational victory, the BJP has got the people's attention for a completely different reason now. None of the newly elected MLA's have been selected as the chief minister of the state. The BJP has felt that none of the 312 MLA's are fit enough for the post. The more surprising fact here is that the nominee for the 'Chief Minister' post and one of the Deputy Chief Ministers are Members of Parliament, the other Deputy Chief Minister being Mayor of the state's capital Lucknow. None of these 3 people contested in the 2017 Uttar Pradesh state election.  


The nominee for the Chief Minister of UP is Mr. Yogi Adhithyanadh, his deputies are M.P Kesav Mauriya and Lucknow Mayor Dinesh Sharma. Modi's plans to develop the country on all margins were in his own terms and conditions. His recent demonetisation move and his various efforts in creating a digital India have all added partial support to his own 'swaraj'. But, the appointment of a religious advocate as a Chief Minister under Modi has created resentment in the hearts of various opposition parties and the people of Uttar Pradesh.


BJP is a party that is filled with concepts and idols of "hindutva". Yogi has been one of the most important people of this slot. 44 year old Yogi, pronounced himself a nun, several years ago. He has been elected as the M.P five times from Gorakpur. He is also the head of Gorakpur Mutt. He has also been the constant favourite of R.S.S leaders. But he has not always been in a smooth relationship with the BJP. Tamil News website Vikatan pointed out that, when BJP national leaders dominate the whole of India, Yogi has been dominating the whole of Gorakpur. Vikatan went on to add that Yogi decided who should serve what posts in the party, who should contest in the state and parliamentary elections from Gorakpur.


Yogi has threatened several times that he will leave the BJP. But R.S.S leaders stopped him from doing so. Yogi doesn't care about what the party says. He acts according to his wish. in 2010, BJP asked its M.P's to support the bill for reservation of women in state assemblies and the parliament. But Yogi opposed the bill. Though a part of BJP, Yogi has his own party called 'Hindu Yuva Vahini'. Saving cows in the name of religion, stopping 'Love Jigath' - all these have been done by his men carrying sticks and walking on the roads.

This party has been responsible for converting 5000 people from other castes to Hinduism. He vowed to make Uttar Pradesh the Hindu empire. He changed the name of Miya Bazaar to Maya Bazaar. Urdu Bazaar became Hindi Bazaar. Ali Nagar became Arya Nagar. Modi, who has appointed new faces as Chief Minsters in other states has chosen Yogi in Uttar Pradesh. Why?


Uttar Pradesh has 80 parliamentary constituencies, out of which BJP won 71 in 2014. Uttar Pradesh was the main reason for BJP to win the 2014 elections. Advocation of the Hindu religion only made this victory possible. So, Modi may look to repeat the process under Yogi, at the cost of other religion people's freedom. With the parliamentary elections just 2 years away, the appointment of Yogi seems to have better prospects for BJP to advocate Hinduism and win in 2019 too.

Political Analysts expect much more drama from the Uttar Pradesh State.

Short but the Best Packing Tips List before the Big Trip

Tags:
(Posted on Feb 13, 2017 at 12:23AM by Frank Hornsby)
Most people hate packing so much they will do everything to make it almost the last thing they do before the big trip. All the stuff you are going to need and the fact that you also need to put everything in a way that you will be able to close luggage afterward, really makes this job not so pleasant. To make this duty at least a little bit more fun and easier – bellow you will find some tips. It might help you out in the long journey of packaging and in the long journey of yours too!
         i.            Start packing early
Wanted to hear it or not, but you should start packing early for the best result. Open your luggage and leave it like that 3 or 4 days before you are leaving. This way, every time you pass it, you can put everything you are going to need during the trip - and as soon as you remember about things you need to pack for yourself. After that, you can forget about it and do other more important stuff – like learn how to be more productive!
       ii.            Roll your clothing rather than fold it
Since packing means a lot of work trying to pack all clothing you wish, you can pack everything you want and still save space if you roll your clothing. It instantly gifts you a lot of space in small luggage. Of course, probably the most efficient way how to pack your clothing is to combine both rolling and folding (as some experts suggest). Especially since some clothes can’t be rolled as they do get all wrinkly. Thankfully, there are always some tips how to master this technique
     iii.            Pack your swimsuit
No matter where you are going – always pack one of your swimsuits too. You don’t really know what can happen and where exactly you can end up. You can travel to Alaska but you can be suddenly invited to a hot tub party, and you will have to say no just because you don’t have a swimsuit! Avoid that and have the best time just because of this small item in your luggage. With it, you will never miss a chance to swim in the ocean or attend a pool party in some foreign country.
     iv.            Use various space savers
You can also pack everything you want to if you use various space savers like compression bags with or packing boxes. It will let you contain all stuff more organized, and it just looks cool too. It is always worth to invest in it since you can use it not only while traveling but also after it while maintaining your closet. In fact, it is just the right time to start looking for such stuff and buying it! Amazon has those space savers, and you should definitely shop there right now.
       v.            Pack with a list
Finally, you can make your packing a lot more effective if you just use a list! A few days before the trip, just sit down for a while and write down every item you wish to have with you on a voyage. After it – leave the list for a day or two to sink in. Maybe after some time, you will remember some stuff you need too – then write it down as well. You will always pack everything you need for your trip by doing this! 

Smart things that will make you smart in reality

(Posted on Jan 11, 2017 at 11:56PM by Frank Hornsby)
You have always wanted to be in the smart list of everyone who is around you. However, it has not been possible for quite some time because you know that it is extremely difficult for you to determine what is the best alternative available to you and how can you achieve this particular objective.
 To help you get out of the confusion zone, we have some effective tips to be shared. Check them below.
 
1. Change your regular home into a smart home
With so many smart products available in the market, it should not be difficult for you to choose some of the best smart home products available in the market and purchase them as soon as possible in order to find satisfaction while you are making the transformation for your home from a regular home into a smart home. This is one of the most effective tips that help everyone, and you should try it as soon as possible.
 
2. Change your job
If you are simply working for money, remember that money will not be a part of you forever. Money is one of the most important things that will help us in every possible way, and we will be in a position to determine how can we achieve this objective and what is the best way in which we can do it. Remember that while working, if you are not satisfied with the job role you have been given, you will not be the best for the job and you will not be in a position to give your hundred percent to it. Change your job and do something that will give you peace and satisfaction.
 
3. Travel the world
You might consider this to be a funny thing because according to you it might not be a smart option but traveling the world is one of the tasks that will make you think a lot. Remember that you are not only thinking about the place you are planning to visit but also a number of things that are attached to the place. At the same time, you also have to determine what can be possibly be done in order to achieve your objectives and return home safely. So, this is not a task for an average person but the smart ones only.
 
4. Take up a creative hobby
With a Creative hobby, you are bound to think about things the way you should think about them. It will always give you a creative option to make necessary changes and do the thing others are doing in a different way. When you start considering this option seriously, you will also realize the fact that it will change your life for the good and make you feel smarter.

Tips to look good

(Posted on Jan 8, 2017 at 11:36PM by Frank Hornsby)
There are so many ways in which you can look good, and some of the most important points that will help you create an amazing impression in front of others are noted below.
 
1. Focus on your hair
Your hair will make an impression on others looking at you even before they come in close contact with you. This means you have an opportunity to impress them even before you have communicated with them. Understand this point because Hair Care is one of the least taken care of options by men. In the case of women, they take a lot of care for their hair and things work for them. Men should start following women in this case.
 
2. Lose weight
Losing weight might not be the most important thing for you because you think that you are good with what nature has given you. Franky, this is the worst excuse you can give yourself because nature did not give you anything specifically to make you put on weight unnecessarily. It has been your choice and your decisions that have led to an increase in your weight. So, it is time for you to start losing weight selfishly because it will help you create a positive impression in front of others.
To lose weight, you can even use the mental power that will be effective in your case.
 
3. Focus on your face
In the case of women, it is slightly easy to achieve this objective because there are many ways to which one can apply makeup and get rid of the issue instantly. In the case of men, this again is a complicated task because they will first have to determine whether a particular look suits them or not. For example, if you are sporting a beard, does it really look good on you or you are just doing it because others are sporting a beard. Focus on your face and things will definitely fall in place.
 
4. Choose the right clothing
Choosing the right clothing is often considered to be a difficult task for people, and if you realize this point as soon as we have noted it here, it means that you have not been in a position to choose the right clothing for yourself at different events. So, go and spend some time in this direction and you will soon realize that your decisions will make others feel positive or negative simply because of the choice of clothing you have made.
If you have had any issues with your clothing in the past, 2017 is this right here for you to start looking for the right type of clothing and make sure that you are not only focusing on the right type of clothing but also determining whether you are constantly choosing the right options or not.

Don’t be a Story-Weaver… Be a writer

Tags:
(Posted on Nov 21, 2016 at 02:41AM by Frank Hornsby)
If you want to write well, it is important to be sure that you not only get down and start writing what is on your mind. That is good, but that makes you a story-weaver and not a writer.

With this, your focus should be on points that will cultivate writer habits in you and make you an actual writer.
 
1.    Work on the proofreading skills: To be a writer, you need to proofread your novel before you give it to a professional to work on it. This means that you need to learn the basic before you actually start writing. At the same time, it is important to be sure that you not only proofread your novel but everything you read. Reading an article in a magazine? Proofread it! Reading a blog post? Proofread it! Of course, the results of the same are to be kept with you only. Don’t share it with the authors. Do it just to improve the skill and not to show off your expertise.

Remember – you can be wrong too!
2.    Participate in contests: There are so many contests going on for writers. Participate in some of them, and you might find yourself improving with every entry. There are many contests, and you can target those which suit your genre, style, and cater to your time restrictions. You definitely don’t want to participate to be disappointed, right? So, make sure you have enough time to write, revise, edit and be satisfied with the entry.

3.    Take time off to write: If you seriously want to write, you should make it a point to look for a place that will cater to your needs and accordingly keep you happy with the time you get to write and write as much as you want. With plans to run away to a new destination, you should make sure that you not only choose the right place but even the right hotel. You do not want to pay an exorbitant price for the atmosphere you want to build. So, start looking for amazing hotels that are offering rooms at a reasonable price.
Also, it is important to understand that inspiration is even a factor that should be considered. If the location selected is not inspirational, you'll be disappointed by the time spent at the place because you might end up paying a considerable price for nothing!

4.    Read novels written by famous authors in the genre you wish to grow: Reading novels written by your favorite author isn’t enough. You need to read novels written by other others too so that you get the necessary dose of inspiration and learn different ways in which the same thing can be said.

5.    Accept criticism: If someone is criticizing your work, you need to accept it with a smile on your face. Grins won’t help, but the ability to learn from the piece of criticism will definitely help. So, make a sensible choice and accept criticism
