Blogger support and post signing

If you haven't noticed, my posts are signed by "snapped synapses". This is a problem when you have multiple blogs with bogger, they are all signed by the same entity. I find this unacceptable. The folks at google help desk seem somewhat blasee about the whole affiar. The two blogs are on different subjects entiredly and were meant to be used for different purposes.

I have been looking at other blogging systems, specificially WordPress. I have started writing Rrecord Jacket Historian posts at and will likely move that to my own machine hosted myself so these kind of support issues just will never exist.

You wrote "Music cannot be digital, music can only be analogue by its very nature. Digital
expressions of music by definition leave out huge amounts of the original
expression and thus are not even a recording of the original expression."

What about music which was authored and
created digitally?

You make a good point. I have also re-evaluated some of my opinions since I wrote that as well.

True enough, "digital" music cannot be heard, it must be transformed into an analogue signal.

Next, hearing a recording, no matter how good or had is always an illusion -- especially stereo or surround sound. It attempts to re-create the acoustic of the original recording space in an alternate one, one which the engineer cannot predict. This is true for all recorded music, digitally recorded or not.

Now, digital music has artificially built-in hard wired limits. Recorded at 44.1 or 48 Khrz allows a precisely defined sound collumn. You, perchance can hear outside that range, and there are recorded sounds, you are just out of luck.

Right now I'm not willing to say weather or not digital sound is good bad or if it is an improvement or not. One thing however, is certain, each recording medium (tape, vinyl, etc ... ) or method (digital or analogue) has its own sound. This is very subtle and most people will not hear it. Any who do hear it will likely hear it in a one to one comparison with another recording.

Still, for me, the most important link in the chain that the consumer can control is the speakers with which he listens to the music. That is why I will never purchase speakers without hearing them. No spec sheet or response curve can predict how a speaker will sound TO YOU. I happen to listen using Mission 753's, I chose those on hearing them. Later models of Missions do not compare even though their frequency response is in theory better. To my ear they are harsh sounding.

Have I clarified anything or have I muddied the waters more? Sound recording is a very subjective thing.
