Giveaway of the Day - MP3 Music Editor

June 3, 2009

MP3 Music Editor is an audio editor for Windows, with visual editing function and various practical features, allowing you to perform as many operations with audio data as you want.

When you open an audio file with MP3 Music Editor, it displays a waveform window, in which you could filter, apply various audio effects - with more than 20 sound effects and 6 filters provided, you could easily enhance the quality of the sound files.


This is a nice little program for those who want nothing more than to convert files and maybe clean them up a little. The UI, and menus are simple and uncomplicated, easy to use.

It does not hog system resources, or cause glitches under Windows XP sp3. I've converted a few wav files to MP3 and they sound pretty good.

This program will also record from the internet, those like radio shows and radio music.

This is supposed to rip CDs too, but I haven't tried that function yet.

This also has a clean up function if you have any old cassette tapes or LPs laying around that you want to archive.

All in all, it's pretty decent for a free program.

Linux and Mac users may want to try Audacity, I've had Audacity for a while. I guess I figured just about everyone knows about Audacity. It's a pretty decent program also. It's open source, and has a ton of features and several different plugins for different things.

Squeeeee!!!! I'm back in business. I really like the the buttons on this keyboard, they have a very good feel. They're not too mushy or too hard. But I'm a key pounder so adjust your perceptions accordingly:) OMG I have a working mouse !!!!!!!!!!  I thought I'd lose my mind before They delivered my stuff.

That's the good news.

My mouse started acting wonky too. It's a good thing I can read the universal mail and ordered a mouse as well. It was bad enough dealing with this damned on screen keyboard, but then he mouse seemed to lose its mind yesterday, and started darting all over the place, going everywhere but where I want it. But knowing my luck they won't be delivered until late today. I'm ready to pull my hair out.

Well this probably doesn't look like any great shakes to some of y'all, but by damn it's a big leap forward for me.

They're just practice pages mind. Not anything complicated yet.

I've been playing with spacing, and font sizes, and colors. I got my index page for my website set up, and some folders. I've linked a second page to the first. I did all this by hand, no html editors, or what have you.

I'm kinda proud of it. I've never dome anything like this before. LOL, I can copy and paste with the best of them though, heh.

Okay, okay so here's the link:


If any of you see a mistake when you view the page source, please let me know:)

The Hunt For Gollum

Awesome excellence, this is an incredible short film, made by fans, just watch it, is all I can say.

This fan made film is just awesome. I mean awesome. I just watched it. It's 40 or so minutes long.

The fantastic creations fans are capable of, doesn't faze me anymore.

When I found fannish things on the internet for the first time years ago, I was blown away by the talented group of people that make up the many branches of fandom, no matter what flag they flew over their particular fannish demesne on the internet.

And since that time, I have had the pleasure of watching fandom grow, and expand to cover just about every area of creative endeavors imaginable.

Icons, banners, pictures, drawings, writing, videos. And now, a short film based on a major motion picture has been made, that is a jewel in the crown of fandom.

I sincerely believe that it would behoove the television, music, and movie industries to make use of the talented fans that have an abiding love for their particular flavor of fandom. These industries are ignoring a pool of talent that can refresh and revitalize their stale, tired old ideas.

Local Network Cookbook:
A Recipe for Launching a Local Broadband Wireless Network


The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act includes $7.2 billion in stimulus funding for broadband deployment in unserved and underserved communities. This funding will be distributed by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) and the Rural Utilities Service (RUS) over the next 12 months. NTIA is an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce; RUS is an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. A summary of federal broadband stimulus funding can be found at: http://www.baller.com/pdfs/Baller_Herbst_Stimulus_2-19-09.pdf

Most of this federal broadband stimulus funding is earmarked for nonprofit organizations and government entities. Commercial providers must receive special permission from the director of NTIA. It is not yet clear whether RUS will adopt this funding approach. Grant application windows are expected in June, November, and May, 2010. These are approximate dates until an official request for proposal (RFP) is issued.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for local nonprofit organizations -- especially community media centers -- to become Internet service providers and begin developing new revenue streams. It's also an historic opportunity for advocates of Internet Freedom. The proliferation of community-based, broadband networks would be a huge step toward creating the critical "third pipe" alternative to the cable/telco duopoly, thereby generating market pressure to force the major carriers to restore “net neutrality” protections for broadband users.

The broadband stimulus opportunity opens the door to a vision for a new Jeffersonian Internet comprised of a “network-of-grassroots-networks” where civil liberties and quality journalism are valued over Wall Street business models.

"Local Network Cookbook: A Recipe for Launching a Local Broadband Wireless Network" is aimed at helping nonprofit organizations -- especially those already using digital technologies -- move quickly to plan and submit a broadband stimulus funding proposal for one of the three application windows.

The rest is at the link up there. There's also a PDF file copy at the very bottom of the page as well as contact info:) If you're in any way interested in starting up your own broadband carrier service, then this can help. I hope you knoe someone that can use this info:)

Stop Time Warner's Internet Penalty

Time Warner Cable has decided that the less Internet you get, the better.

Just as Americans are suffering economically, the cable giant is trying to squeeze us even further, forcing customers to pay a steep penalty for exceeding an absurdly low monthly limit on Internet use. Better Internet access is a centerpiece of America's economic recovery plan. Time Warner's penalty is designed to pad the company's profits at its customers’ expense.

Please visit the URL below to join me in calling on Congress to stop Time Warner's unfair Internet penalty:
