I noticed most of my threads are me asking questions...so i decided that this is were i will be posting ALL my random ass questions :D ... By "Random ass questions" I mean questions that can be answered in a sentance or two (at least to me it seems like they could be)...Questions about Life, School, Work, Anime, etc... Multiple answers would be awesome :D We all have different opinions\views\beliefs\levels of stupidity so a variety of answers is certain ;)

So to begin i have some questions I NEED answers to...

#1) How can i convert .ogg audio to .aac in MeGui?

#2) If you are fluent in Japanese, do the openings & endings of anime not sound as cool? For example, Death Note OP1 sounds AWESOME!!...idk jap i just love the way it sounds :3...But the lyrics suck :/

#3) How long can you free fall for when going skydiving?

1) You know, maybe I'm crazy, but I don't like to use MeGUI for encoding audio. I tend to use other software, like Audacity (which, incidentally, is great for editing audio as well).

2) I'm not Japanese, nor do I understand it fully, but I'm sure OPs/EDs are just as cool (perhaps moreso, since they can inherently understand them). I mean, why would studios put so much effort into them if they were generally unappreciated? ;)

3) Depends on how high up you start skydiving.

:rolleyes:

OPs and EDs sometimes seem more corny with cliched lyrics then the subs suggest. Though my Japanese is not that good, so it could be just my bad Japanese.

Yeah, I've had a few translators tell me straight-out that a lot of OPs/EDs just don't make any sense (and so are a pain to translate).

I thought I had come across bizarre, almost gibberish sounding songs before as well, like just all lexical with no structure comes to mind. I just attributed it to shitty Japanese skills.

#3) How long can you free fall for when going skydiving?

[it may depend on how high your jump is ..]

The record for the longest freefall is a 4 minutes and 55 seconds wingsuit jump. Also I think 4000m feet is around the highest you can jump from without oxygen. And termianal volicy for people is about 190km/h, you need say 800m for the parachute to fully inflate, but that is all i know from random.

programmable buttons are more often then not a gimmick. Except for some serious MMORPG players. One friend has awesome keyboard for lots of money and uses none of the extras, another has the same one but uses all the button macros for spell casting and what not.

I would save money and get a normal keyboard as well.

That said my not lots of buttons keyboard is selling for not much cheaper then the g110.

This is what I have

I agree I just have a nice looking keyboard without all the gimmicks, well the only gimmick it has is the touch sensitive pause/play, stop, fast forward, rewind, and sound buttons.

that being said, it is a lovely keyboard, and it goes with my system

Well that is a pretty cool keyboard. Though I would get a lycosa, goes of the illuminated keys. I love illuminated keys!

If I wanted to get a gaming keyboard, with a few, but not over the top programmable keys,I most prob get something like the, Razor Black widow, MS Sidewinder X4. Logitech's just do not look as good, maybe if the G105 was a shaped like the G110, that would be ok, the G110 + models just got to much shit. Even the G105 button layout a long the top make it look too 'busy'. The Razor Deathstalker is pretty fancy, looks ok. But I will never really use the app buttons, or trackpad, again to many buttons.

So! I recommend not getting a keyboard with not lots of buttons, but rather get a more standard layout like lighteningblade's Razor Arctosa, or the prettier Lycosa. Or the Logitech one I have, the wireless version looks shit, ugly shape.

That keyboard you have looks like a mac keyboard (so it has flat keys), seems like it will be horrible to type with? if a mac keyboard anything to go by.

The mac key boards are a little too small, and the keys are too flat, thought, I like there design. My keyboard looks flat, but it is a rather clever illusion. It is flatter than most, but the keys have a good push depth, but also... light, I find it very comfortable type fast and game.

The photos on amazon does not show you what it really looks like, it makes it look flat as! I will post some picks to show you what it actually looks like.

Edit: Here we go, taken on phone!

Now a little closer:

And this shows you that the keys are good, not like the mac.

Zach's keyboard does look sexy B) However, I think ill go with the g110...only $50 and has purple :3...also... I think the programable buttons can be programed to open programs...confirmation?...also... the lighting in your house is ugly :P Stop being a vamipre and open dem curtains boy :[

5) I wanna get a expansion card wifi thing for my build. So it'll be wifi enabled. In case I need to move it and ethernet is not an option... Any suggestions\reccomendations? All of the ones I saw on newegg had almost no huevos :/

Yeah the keys can be set to open a program or programs, you can even write your own .exe and set it to open that so it can do a whole heap of shit, also it can run a string of key strokes and mouse clicks, etc etc (being what is mostly used by gamers).

Lighting in house is ugly? It is night time, and I much prefer the soft yellow, ambient light I have for my bedroom. It is enough to read in with no strain on the eyes, illuminated the room to see everything clearly, while not being to bright, white or reducing the intensity of my computer monitor.


WiFi card...Something like this, has many eggs and appears to be good.

I have one of those keyboards as well, Zach, but I primarily use this awesome mechanical keyboard because I'm crazy.
