because it reminds people of the wild baby-pinching days of their youth.

Looking for a good program to monitor data usage on my computer

  • day by day usage a must
  • preferably able to see how much each user used each day
  • set start/end points of the month before allowance gets reset
  • would be good if it could also give a run down of the usage via laptop which is connected wirelessly, without having to change the firmware on the modem router.


cheers

I've just seen that appear on my laptop... "consider replacing your battery" WHAT!? serious? I have a ASUS K40IN it should be around a year old now I use it pretty much every day... but like really should I? like its always plugged in except for maybe 1-2 hours 4 times a week. But I've noted that last night the battery lasted MAYBE 1 hour...? it was kinda cold when I started it would it affect it?

Perhaps the "Rokario Bandwidth Monitor" I've had it a couple years ago on my desktop for when we didn't have unlimited download I don't know if it exactly what you want but it shows day by day data download/upload, they have probably upgraded it since I used and maybe the Pro has what you need.  So just thought I'd let you know

A year and all that time running the battery should pretty much suffice to eat through it, especially if you charge it often or forget that ti's connected to the charger for too long.
I suggest buying a new one.

having a battery at 100% charge all time time lowers its life more than if it gets drained down then charged back up. if you're plugged in to a wall all week pull the battery out and don't use it.

Nope. As long as the battery's connected it uses the battery.

The computer trickle charges to keep the battery at 100%

Do iPhone games work on iPod Touch as well? Or are those two completely different platforms with different games for them?

Yes, it's the same operating system and platform and app store.

Of course remember that any requirements for a camera or whatever else the iPhone has that the touch doesnt won't be able to be used

While we are talking about the iPhone/iTouch, what are your favourite apps?

My ipod's dead right now so I can't name any, but I get most of my games from freeappaday.com and freegameoftheday.com. They each have apps that have direct access to the site, so you can get 2 free apps a day straight from your ipod.
4 out of 5 times they're shitty shovelware titles, but I've gotten some great games so far.

I like music a lot, so I always look for higher-quality downloads (in FLAC format for example). Problem is - FLACs take up a TON of disk space. I never owned a good stereo system or a pair of badass headphones (but I plan to get them at some point), so I can't tell much difference between Mp3 and lossless formats.
So my question is:

How much better is FLAC compared to 320kbs MP3? Is it really worth getting FLACs if I really like the music, or is 320kbs MP3 almost just as good? Also, which is better - 320kbs VBR or CBR?

you shouldn't be able to notice any difference really. Best quality VBR (V0) will be theoretically worse than 320 CBR, but you might not hear a difference here either. Compare them both and see which one is enough for you ;)
If you REALLY love your flacs though, i'd just get another terabyte of space... HDDs aren't all that expensive these days.
