    Pioneer Elite VSX-35TX dying?

    I had my receiver on today (like any other day) with the TV going. I went outside for a bit and came in to some awful noise. It's hard to describe, but it was garbled noise coming from the speakers and it wasn't constant. It came in spurts. I tried all the various inputs of my receiver. I tried...

    Replace/Install self-propel drive belt on Honda mower?

    Update -- I ordered the parts and worked on the mower yesterday. I put a new set of mulching blades on as well as a new drive belt. The new blade works really well -- it just purrs through the thick grass. The belt on the other hand ... As soon as I engaged the self-propel lever, the belt...

    --The Hemorrhaging Keyboards-- When I was in college, we had several intramural team names. My favorite was "Sharif and Some White People".

    Replace/Install self-propel drive belt on Honda mower?

    I've got a Honda self-propelled mower, but the belt that connects the motor to the wheels slipped off (and is now missing after a move). How hard is it to install a new one? I've never done mower maintenance before, so I don't want to get started and then end up making things worse -- the mower...

    Cold Coffee Question

    I can't seem to find the link, but I've seen a new small thermos recently. What makes this thermos special is that it has a two chambers -- one large central chamber where the bulk of the coffee is kept hot; the other is around the edge, allowing a small portion to cool to a temperature...

    What to call this? Interpretive juggling?

    Pretty cool. I'd like to see the same routine, but with chainsaws.

    Mixing parts of music on my pc.

    Essentially, you're trying to do what the very first DJ did -- extend the breaks to create a new flow of music (albeit digitally instead of using turntables and a mixer). Just keep toying around with the programs and you should figure it out. There may be tutorials either online or in bookstores...

    Mixing parts of music on my pc.

    Andrew is right on. I hadn't heard of tracker software, but like he says, it depends on how large these portions of songs are that you'd like to mix. If you're cutting short samples, then use a sequencer or tracker. If you're looking to mix larger portions of songs together like a DJ would, but...

    Can anyone tell me where this sound byte is from?

    You're probably thinking of Battle Without Honor or Humanity - Tomoyasu Hotei. If that was the portion sampled, the tempo and pitch have been altered.

    Mixing parts of music on my pc.

    So is a "tracker" a simplified sequencer? I'd recommend software like Fruity Loops, Reason, Ableton Live, Cubase, ... I'm sure there are free ones, too. I just haven't looked into it.
