I've been using a freeware DOS music program for several years called Impulse Tracker. It's just about the only thing I enjoy using and I love it to bits. So when my dad bought me a new computer for a graduation cum birthday present expressly to make music on, i was overjoyed. Sadly I have had this computer for a year and i haven't been able to make a track since! The program runs very slowly and the sound is really hissy and horrible. On some other music programs, the computer comes up with an error about latency, which i assume links to this. Also I can't record anything from my CD player or microphone, no matter how much i fuck around with the sound settings. These problems also sometimes happen when I play DVDs - the sound is really hissy and granular ad often i have to turn the speakers right up to hear anything. What's going on?!!

Dog latin, are your speakers plugged into the correct port, is the internal volume on the computer turned up. Try plugging the sound out from your computer through an amp. It sounds like the on the hiss front is caused by too low sound levels amplified up really far. It may ofcourse be a duff soundcard.

Stereo playback quality is far more important than lots of inputs (I won't be using it for multi-track recording) or 5.1 capability. An S/PDIF I/O would be nice, as would some bundled analysis/DSP software (Cool Edit, Sound Forge, etc). Are the ones with breakout boxes the only ones guaranteed to be low noise?

ed, yeh it's all plugged in corretically and I run my sound through a stereo amp anyway. the hiss only happens when there's sound playing and only when i do certain things like play DVDs. So when people are talking it sounds like "Yeahscchhhhhh I knowhhhhh..." and there's a quiet digital crackle. It sounds even worse when I play it through Impulse Tracker. I'm surprised by how few outputs there are on the soundcard - there are three sockets - SPK, LIN and MIC. I can't work out whether LIN is line out or line in so I just use SPK.I never know the specs on my computer but it's running Windows ME with summat called C-Media Wave Device as the mixer. what other info might you need?

Daria: apologies if this is patronisingly obvious and that was an example of a much more general case, but what if you specify the colour as a hex code, i.e. background-color: #FFFFFF? But Netscape 4.x is really not good with CSS; I've seen that scrunching problem many times and apart from doing a drastically simplified NS stylesheet - no messing with floating or "position:"s either absolute or relative and half my paddings and margins removed, ugh! - I never found a way round it. I have had problems like the first too but can't remember how or whether I fixed it.
Quick hacky way to do extra styles for IE without bothering with any JS or server-side client checking: the line of CSS "@IMPORT url(ie-styles.css);" will work in IE but not in Netscape - I don't remember which way other browsers behave - so you can put your basic styles in one stylesheet and add an import line in it for the IE stuff.
Unfortunately if you're doing anything very fancy with DHTML and CSS I have a nasty feeling you may have to do a cutdown version for Netscape users. Having said that, I too did some work for a university campus with a lot of stubborn NS4.x users and didn't actually have to do anything too drastic apart from the trick above.
Disclaimer: I don't know too much DHTML myself, and for my previous jobs it's been fine to settle for less than perfection in order to meet deadlines. I was also lucky enough to be the most knowledgeable about HTML of anyone there, frightening though that is considering my ineptitude, so if I said something wouldn't work then nobody else would contradict me. There are some fancy pieces of DHTML out there that work fine in Netscape, so maybe I just don't know enough. But from the CSS end Netscape is definitely a mess, even newer versions than 4.
Dog Latin: Impulse Tracker doesn't like Windows very much, unfortunately. IT3 has now reached beta stage, but it's taken a very long time to get that far, so who knows if it'll ever really happen? Besides, I am rather suspicious of it because Pulse is no longer on the coding team. I have a feeling that the finished product, if it arrives, will turn out different enough in feel to IT that I won't get used to it but still be a long way behind a lot of its current rivals (from Buzz and Psycle in the based-on-trackers arena to all the expensive professional stuff out there). My disappointment with Sk@le (basically Fasttracker 2 remade for Windows) and Renoise makes me wary.
About IT: use the MPU401 drivers if they work at all! Try it S19 and hope it will autodetect; if not, look for the settings in control panel and try specifying them manually. I think this is the closest IT can come to using your modern soundcard to full effect. Unfortunately this doesn't always seem to work even with cards that should be MPU401-compatible. It works now and autodetects on my SB Live but I remember last time I tried it didn't. I have no idea why this might have changed. Unfortunately I can't get any further because of memory and graphics mode problems. I used to get around that with a boot disk but with XP I'm not sure there's anything I can do. I'll try later.
IT's sound drivers are out of date and your modern soundcard's backwards compatibility with cards that existed when it was written is probably a bit dodgy. This could mean that the driver autodetect selects isn't the best - try choosing some others, if you haven't done so - or that you have to use a driver much worse than your card is capable of. On my SB Live the SB Pro driver works but isn't the one autodetect selects and the SB16 and SB AWE (both better soundcards than the Pro) drivers won't work at all, so by default I'd end up using the SB2 drivers. I had a Soundblaster 2 a decade ago. I don't want my computer to sound like that now.
What kind of soundcard do you have? My motherboard has onboard sound but I found it too noisy to use. I don't think it's that the chip itself is that bad, though it's obviously fairly cheap; it's more that it picks up so much interference from other board activity. If you're using a sound chip built into your motherboard I recommend not doing so. If you're using a separate soundcard, try rearranging your card slots so that the soundcard is in the furthest slot from the main section of the motherboard and not immediately next to any other cards.
One last thing: I believe Modplug tracker will read and write (not 100% identically to IT but it sounds fine most of the time) .IT files and can be set up so that the command codes and keyboard layout are as IT's was. I can't stand Modplug personally, so I can't confirm that, nor do I particularly recommend it. I just thought it might be worth a look since it was designed for Windows and will use your card's Windows sound drivers.
Apologies for such a long post when I suspect none of this will be any help to either of you. I may write boring and badly phrased posts like the above but I'm not really much good at techy things.

I don’t understand the original question but if you just want to back up your old backup disk, just plug it and the new drive (formatted as AFS) into your MacBook and copy the files over.

k forgive me for asking this, but there's a huge chance I already have in the past ten years but...
Problem: iCloud drive space = tinyphone drive space / mac drive space / portable HDs = plenty o'spacedropbox space - ok but not that big
getting tired of deleting random photos from my phone to stop hitting the 5 GB limit but I refuse to pay for more cloud space when I have so many other options and my phone itself is like 256gb now
using my own backup HDs and iPhoto, I assume - and maybe something like Dropbox or Google Photos which I didn't realize was available until now - what's the best to have a reliable and/or accessible backup source of photos so i don't get nagged by Apple all the time?
current guess: create a separate library in iPhoto that isn't the "main" library, it gets no iCloud sync. back that up with Dropbox/Google/Time Machine/whatevs

Can a kindred spirit help me out here? I've a folder on a Mac 10.10.x that I share with all other colleagues in our network (every user can read & write). Is it possible to apply a setting that any file added to said folder, also receives the file permissions changed to 'read/write everyone'? I get a lot of wetransfer files from third parties, and wetransfer seems to give files a 'read only' permission, or permits it just for the user who downloaded the file. What I want is: if I save that file to the shared folder, the permission should automatically be set so that everyone can read/write (aka work with) it.
Is this possible?

i recently bought a brand new Dell to replace my old 2012 Windows 7 Asus. It's proved nothing but useless since I got it out the box. I get intermittent lagging/freezing whihc happens every few minutes. File Explorer menus often take several seconds to load up when being accessed from my external HD, even if there are only a few files in the folder. When I'm using Serato, the wave animations are juddery and hard to look at. Never had anything like this with my old laptop which is significantly lower spec.
I've tried to get Dell to help me but all they've done is run a few stress tests and asked me to try it on Safe Mode for a day (as if I've got loads of time on my hands to do this).
It's been a few weeks and I've spent most of my free time trying to diagnose issues and work out whether the problem is to do with the computer, whether it's down to external devices, following online optimisation guides (a lot of the settings and options in these guides appear to have been hidden by Dell in my version of Windows), and now I'm at the end of my tether.
I've asked Dell if they would be able to refund me, and they've said I'm past my cooling period. I'm sure I can argue that much of the cooling period has involved me trying to fix the problems inherent since unboxing the machine, but I would really rather just get to the root of the issue.
Anyone else experienced this kind of thing before I start kicking off properly at them?
