I have a friends who is into amateur DJing and the whole rave scene . The software he uses is

* Fruity Loops Mixing Tracks only for Windows I guess

* Traktor DJ Studio For Mac/Win

In addition to Geta Boshi's recommendations (and taken with a grain of salt, because I don't actually do this stuff)...

Ableton Live is considered the top-end, but like any powerful software, can be hard to use. Many use or get started on on lower-end software that makes producing things a bit easier.

Mixxx, KraMixer, and Zulu are free. PCDJ (which a friend of mine swears by) and VirtualDJ also have good reputations and have demos available. There are more out there you can find with clever searching.

Try any of them, or try all of them. Different people have different wants or needs, so each piece of software fills a niche. Don't hesitate to try working with programs that aren't made for live mixing, either. Some people start better by "building" mixes, and others start better by learning to do it "real-time". Just see what works for you.

Once you have the audio down, then you can worry about the cash-consuming technical elements in being a "VJ".

Googled it up and two sites gave smiliar results

* Parchment paper

* Lettuce

Quote:
Another helpful hint is not to allow the food to come in contact with the steamer and you won't have sticking, or rancidity. Use a bed of lettuce or other fresh leaves, or parchment paper


Lot of helpful Tips

Quote:
You can place the food directly upon the slots, or over lettuce or parchment paper to avoid sticking.

I personally would go with Lettuce leaves ^o^

Yeah pretty much the same thing . As your in netherlands you could buy it from Lidl Supermarket. Heard its lot cheaper there and as your not baking so shape wont be a question, so you dont have to go for pre cuts .

I'm somewhat guessing you can't since it's an unsuported format by microsoft, as far as I can tell.

Other than MP3, does Microsoft media software support any container formats not invented in Redmond like AVI or WM*?

After their experience with MP3, I suspect they'll be extremely slow to support any formats they don't control.

basically, if a media format doesn't come with digitally-crippled-mangling (DRM), Microsoft is going to pretend it doesn't exist mostly (but not consistently).

When animals escape from the zoo, they are frequently put down with tranquilizers rather than lethal force (at least, this used to be the case). Why do the police not give other humans the same consideration?

Tranquilizers are, unfortunately, not really less-than-lethal force. Animals die from being tranquilized quite often.

Many feel that giving police an "only possibly lethal" force might encourage an officer to use that force in occasions where lethal force would not absolutely be justified or, at the very least, provoke lawsuits accusing such in cases where a person was permanently injured or killed by such force.

You see this today with stun-guns and other "less than lethal force" methods which contain the slight possibility of doing greater harm than intended.

aye... the Taser mismanagement is a prime example of operational laziness at work that leads to tragedy. Bit of trouble? Meh, just taze 'em, the package says its risk-free and requires much less brain power than talking him down.

... hey he stopped breathing. ...

Well, there's nothing perfect about less-than-lethal...People wanted less-than-lethal, so companies introduced tasers...Now we find out they can be lethal, but it's not like they kill all the time...If the cops are trying to subdue someone where lives aren't at steak (Steak? Stake, damn I'm hungry), would you rather the cops taser them, or have a hollow-point .45 ACP or 9mm Para put into them instead?

"Don't taze my, bro!"

I'm not sure if this is possible and i'm not sure if it's already asked but here it goes...

Is it possible to allow another user to edit my post? I mean with moderator's permission and suches.

No. Editing posts is one of the user group dependent options. Normal users cannot nominate other users to edit their posts. Such a function does not exist. Staff can edit your posts, but they do not need your permission to do so because it is an ability granted by being a member of the moderator user group.

I would like to comment further on what NightWish said. Basically in order to be able to "nominate" a user to edit your posts it would require constantly altering the core structure of the database... (require N addition columns to be added to the database assuming a non normalized structure. Or creation of very complex O-M (or would that be N-M) relationships. In other words it would be too impractical to do so.

Oh, just think about it as a another version of the contacts system and you could say the bulk of it has already been done.

There are 3 ways...
  • You and the other user become part of a certain user group with the ability to edit each other's post. Although I'm not sure if it's posible to give you the ability to edit each others post with outh the ability to edit posts in other groups; if it was I can't see it as a strain on the system.

  • The other user is nominated to a group which has the ability to edit posts in your user group.

  • You give the other user your login details. (I believe this is prohibited by the rules, either applying to you or the other person)

Q. Why do you need such a ability to begin with?

I don't know if I'm just cynical, but if any user could freely have the ability to edit another user's post, the first thing that came to mind is that I could see a horrible case of "Disregard that" gone awry... >_<
