re: Has album art/packaging lost its importance to the album? - DrewTheEngineer
I agree with the sentiments in post. I was born in '72, so growing up, I bought vinyl, cassettes, and CD's. I would like to add that I miss all the liner notes and lyrics that you would get in some albums. I can remember, for example, running out to buy Metallica's Black Album on CD when it c...

OT Runners: help me diagnose a foot ailment - DrewTheEngineer
For the past few years, whenever I try to run (or walk a few miles for that matter), I get a sharp pain on the side of my right foot. The pain starts just below my right ankle and will gradually spread along the side of my foot. Even if I go a few months without running/walking, the pain will co...

MacBook pro storage recommendations - DrewTheEngineer
Looking at picking up a refurbished MacBook pro (circa mid-2105) with the "256 PCIe-based flash storage" option. I've never owned a Mac, so I'm wondering what the minimum drive space needs to be. My current Dell laptop has a 512 drive, but I only use about half of it. I would primarily be doing...

Deducting computer and software costs for an LLC - DrewTheEngineer
I have a small LLC (outside of my main employment) which produces an income of less than $2000 per year for software development. I've been using an old laptop purchased before the LLC was formed, but I' thinking of buying a new one and expensing the costs. Since I'm not very good at tax research,...

re: Any way to improve performance of a new laptop? - DrewTheEngineer
If the hard drive is not an SSD, then consider getting one first. My Dell laptop basically has the same processor and memory as yours, but the factory hard drive significantly hampered it. After I put in an SSD, it run much much faster. ...
