Thanks....I am just going to keep it simple for now..mostly a blog format:)

the bad thing is that I have a Tascam FW-1082 control surface and I am afraid that if I used one of those keyboard slide out trays, it won't hold the weight of this thing and go crashing right into my keyboard:).......
That tray is pretty heavy duty, its not like a keyboard tray on a cheap computer desk. It should easily hold your 14 pound Tascam controller with no trouble. My concern would be is the tray long enough to hold both your controller and keyboard.
I have the exact same problem where my midi keyboard is at a 90-degree angle from everything else. Seren, I see you do the same thing as well. I've been on the lookout for a desk with a very wide slide-out shelf that would be long and strong enough to accommodate a midi keyboard (instead of a standard computer keyboard).
Has anyone seen such a desk?

Einstein- Yes, she's a bit obsessive-compulsive. One of her medications is supposed to combat that particular malady.
I have a 20 year old daughter who has NEVER had a sip of alcohol, NEVER smoked a cigarette or a joint, never took a drug of any kind, and won't drink anything with caffeine. She'll eat no fat; the only meat she eats is boiled chicken breast without the skin. She'll eat no salt, and no packaged food, just fresh fruits and vegetables (boiled sometimes). She works out everyday at the gym and does pilates everyday at home. She has a job, and is getting A's and B's in college. She's considered to be VERY good looking by all the boys. She's never been in trouble of any kind, never had a traffic ticket, never needed any sort of discipline ever. When she leaves the house she says "'Bye mom, 'bye dad, love you."
And yet I'm STILL stressed about her. She's too perfect. She'a a rigid perfectionist who drives herself too hard to be "the best". As a result, she's often stressed out about some imagined catastrophic failure that she'll never recover from. She can be very moody and snarly. She's on anxiety medication and anti-depressants. She's prone to getting hysterical. I wish she'd just relax a bit and learn to enjoy the simple things.
I don't know where she gets it from, neither me or her mother are that way. It's very ironic that too much of a good thing can actually be a bad thing.
Here's a photo for Brendan Fraser who looks like me... Yep spitting image.
well...at least someone shut the door up there since here in West texas we are finally getting to a high of 60 or so today...YAY!!!....the last few days, barely saw above 32 or so......freezing down here..oh, darren, we so pity those of you in tex-ASS. you have 3 or 4 days every millennium below freezing, you poor boy.
I don't think you'll be laughed out of here, einstein36... in fact I'd guess that most of us will wish you well following your recent male-to-female gender reassignment.
There are several things that seem to have a correlation to problems with the lifespan of burned CDRs.
First, poor quality media. I think some artists and labels, faced with buying CDR media in large quantities for a new release, make the decision to save $30 or $50 on media costs, with the result that a much higher number of copies have gone bad after 5 or 10 years.
Second, stick-on disc labels. There's no dispute that the labels cause problems for slot-load CD players, like in many car players and some laptops (like my Apple Powerbook) due to increasing the effective thickness of the disc. Also, slightly off-center labels create rotational instability (think of your washing machine going out of balance in the spin cycle) and so the discs are more likely to have other problems in playback. I've also heard reports of a sort of "rot" happening on sticker-label discs, though I've heard of this so rarely that I don't know if it's a real thing.
I had three things in mind when I started typing this and have already forgotten what the third thing was...
