Good Grief! It's been a horribly busy day here. Good news is the day has gone fast and it hasn't been anything bad happening. Bad news is that I'm pooped!

Picked up Maisy's new meds at lunch. She is SO looking forward to her slimmer self.

Ok Cruzer. You love electronics. I need an inexpensive stereo system for work that will get good radio reception (typical office building), has a remote for quick MUTE, and has a small footprint. Ideas?

Ms. Daj,

Do people still listen to the radio?

I suggest hooking up some speakers and a wireless mouse to an Internet-connected computer, and playing an Internet simulcast of a radio station.

Do you want a CD or cassette player or anything other than radio?

I don't know about where daj is, but streaming audio got banned where I was working, because it potentially takes up too much bandwidth.

They've banned it here because it was eating up too much bandwidth. Don't blame them. I figured it was coming.

I hate that. There is no happy medium for how long you need to keep data. I know some of the files on my server are from 1995 and probably not necessary but we have lots of stuff from 2000 and beyond and who knows if we still need it or not.

One of my primary jobs involved updating files from 1986 on. I have all the electronic stuff, I never get rid of that, it's the papers (mostly notes from meetings) that I don't think I have anymore.

Preferred but not required

Low enough that if it gets stolen I won't be mad.

I'm don't listen to a lot of music. I play it in the background to block out the sound of the loud lady in the next office talking on the phone and the perisistent cougher down the hall.

Nope, earbuds don't work because I have to grab the phone a lot (hence the mute remote control). I bought this small one figuring I'd use the earbuds but it just doesn't work well with my job. It has an external speaker too but if I'm going to use a speaker, I'd rather a bit better quality. The TV reception ain't bad though. Might use it on dog walks.

Hmmmm, the iLives have a better review than the one Coby review I could find. Hmmmmmmm. I thought I might have to go stereo system to get a remote. I had no idea that "boombox" style ones had remotes. Thanks Az!

Table-top radio. Might be the way to go. I may have to go by Fry's and/or Walmart and listen to some.

We, er I mean Santa, got one for daughter at Sears, er the North Pole for Christmas. It's a Sony and sounds okay, but I'm not an audio-guru, so it could very well sound quite crappy.
