Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
I would imagine Ferrari’s aren’t selling very well right now, but hey, dreams are free. Click the pic above for the Ferrari California website, configurator, wallpapers, etc.
They are selling, believe me!!!
Is it appropriate to be posting pictures of wished for expensive automobiles in the current economic climate?
I think not.
Dear Down and Out,
I will never be able to afford one, no matter what economic climate. So yes, a car enthusiast should be able to appreciate a Ferrari any time.
If you want to be upset, be upset over http://jalopnik.com/391696/1961-ferrari-250-gt-california-sells-for-10976000-setting-world-record-as-most-expensive-car-ever.
The reason I posted this to start with is because I was watching Ferris Bueller's Day Off which has a replica 1961 Ferrari 250 GT in it. After looking up some information I discovered the new California website. Looks like a pretty cool car to me.
Although i am single i have been thinking about a Valentines present for myself.
Sometimes i play as a DJ at parties at work or for friends, and Numark has just released a MIDI-based controller for MixMeister Fusion DJ software:
Shiny hardware with blinkenlights in different colours and everything, and the reviews seem positive even though its too big to fit in a 19" rack.
I have used the software with a laptop for a couple of years and it works really well after a bit of practising.
If you have 2 soundcards you can "preview" the next song when playing live (i like the sound from M-Audios USB-based soundcards, they sound way better than the integrated sound-chip in a laptop and have less distortion when connected to a PA-system).
Basic demonstration of the hardware:
