BEST PRACTICES: Write down what inputs on your soundcard are what (microphone, headphones, line in, line out, etc). You can usually tell which is which when looking at a brand new card, but they are usually etched into the metal — very low contrast. Once you get some wires blocking your view, and your computer is moved/wired in somewhere without good lighting — A label like the ones at the bottom can save you a world of leaning, unwiring, computer moving, and lower back pain. The top label is harddrive cylinders, heads, etc. Fortunately with SATA and even EIDE, we don’t have to deal with that hell anymore.

computer case, labels.

While visiting family in western PA in October 2009 we popped into northern West Virginia to check out some state parks, including Cooper Rock, Valley Falls, and Blackwater Falls. WV is really an underrated state – it is very scenic – great waterfalls, vistas, rolling hills and big rivers – if you have a chance, check it out!
