I was kind of suprised that the largest range was 'more
than 10 gigs'...I think I've got around 33 or 34.
Whenever I buy a new CD, I rip it even before adding it
to my database.
Why? Because I'm lazy. I don't want to switch CDs
10 times an hour just to get the combination of songs
I want to listen to while I'm coding.
Nor do I want to
carry the CDs between all the different rooms where I
want to listen to music.
Heh. I cheated... I counted my husband's MP3 collection
(I think he ripped most of a 200 CD collection), because,
well, it's at my home, isn't it? :) I must confess though:
my hearing is bad enough that I can't hear the difference
between 256k and 96k, so most of mine are done at 96k.
I picked 10GB+ because I backup every mp3 I ever tap my hand on! Is it a dirty thing? I dont think so. When they will lower the prices, and I can see the musicians really get the money, I will buy more CDs. But no more explanation I just love music. :-)
I have ~4.5 gigs at work, but less than 100 megs at
home. I rip them at work and then put winamp in shuffle
mode on the entire directory tree. It keeps the mind
stimulated by playing completely different songs back to
