The Resistance ~ Muse

5.0 out of 5 stars Muse - The Resistance, 18 Dec 2009
Eat your heart out Rachmaninoff and Chopin!
This is a great album and the live performace of Muse at the NIA in Birmingham, where they played most of the numbers, was total sensory overload stuff. The best performance of any kind that I have ever been to - so maybe that influences my rating of the CD!!! Get to see them.

There are very few books on this topic and so it's not hard for it to be one of the better ones - which it probably is.
I liked the way it started but it soon departs from offering knowledge in "bite-sized" chunks and assumes you will want to learn by following examples that are unnecessarily lengthy or complex. Like a lot of experts Matt seems to find difficulty in putting himself in the shoes of his (less expert) readers. Inch by inch lifes a synch. A mile at a time life's a swine!
I have to say that it wasn't long before I reverted to looking for tutorials and examples on the web which, whilst few and far between, were nonetheless more helpful.

Western Digital Caviar Blue  500GB SATAII  16MB Ca&hellip by Western Digital

At 10 pence per gigabyte you can't really complain!

I have an existing Seagate drive that is beginning to make unnerving rattling sounds and so I have installed this Caviar drive and activated the backup software that comes free within the Vista control panel to do a daily update copy of all my files.

When the Seagate does finally fall of its perch I will set up a pair of 500GB drives in a Raid 1 configuration but the thought of doing this now and having to re-install all my software before I really have to is just too much!

The Caviar drive installed easily, runs quietly and, so far, "does exactly what it says on the tin." Time will tell!
