Home consumer market CDs are very susceptible to scratches and other degradations. I generally use Sony, but have also used Memorex and TDK. I'm pretty careful with them, and I'm lucky if they last...

Storage is so cheap now it might make sense to save everything in a lossless format and then convert what you want to take with you to mp3 or whatever. I fit 2700 songs of varying lengths, including...

Yes, I agree, people do bad things and try to pretend that the law or the norms of society will protect them. Sometimes they even reach into the past to justify their actions.

What does this mean? And what does it have to do with anything I've written?



Refuting what I perceive to be inaccuracies and evasions in posts is hardly "bitching on an online forum."

Your examples--the Aztecs, the Spartans--don't really apply to what I'm saying. For example, if by some magic you were transported to the time of the Aztecs, would you suddenly feel that human...

The "morals" of exploiting children haven't changed; society's attitude towards exploiting children changed. What was wrong in the 1920s is just as wrong today. Many people considered it immoral...

This is an absurd argument. In ancient times, if an Egyptian was caught defacing public property, he (or she) was killed. Period.



Are you trying to argue that because a lumberman a hundred...

With Pipe and Book in Lake Placid has a large selection of old topos. I got the 1953 Marcy quad and a cut-down 1903 one for $20.

They're not on the web and the selection changes a lot.

I apologize for getting overheated. But how do you respond to someone who says that strip mining is better for the Adirondacks than a club dedicated to conservation?

Or is it better to let...

Calling Pataki a crook does nothing to improve your faulty logic. Let's try to figure out what you're actually saying: Owning land to strip mine it, causing gaping wounds on the landscape,...

Why don't you go tell Governor Pataki that he's not allowed to own waterfront land on Lake Champlain in Essex while you're at it?

In fact, why should anyone be allowed to own anything? It's just...

I apologize if I over-reacted to a very small portion of your trip report. I guess I get frustrated trying to defend what is one of the most hiker-friendly private clubs in the Adirondacks.

You don't have to be a member to stay at the clubhouse. In fact, most members don't stay there at all.

Interesting observation. How do you know they were club members, and not Keene Valley locals, who were not delighted to see you on the road? And how exactly did you want them to respond to you?
