I want to convert some vinyl records to digital format. My old CD Spin Doctor won't work with Mac system 10.8, Mountain Lion. Is there another program I can buy that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I don't want to buy one of those turntables that converts analog recordings to CD. I'm certain the computer will do a fine job of that. Maybe Roxio will update their software someday, but I'm not that patient.2 AnswersSoftware8 years ago
My real question is, who's going to pay for them? With the present attitude toward raising taxes, who is going to pay the wages of the guards, the training, the guns, the ammunition and the liability insurance? I live in a city of about a million people. We have well over 100 public schools all of which have many avenues of access to the campus, so they'd each need more than one guard per campus. Having the principal armed faces the same problems of getting to the site of a disturbance and getting the rest of his job done. I suppose if the NRA is going to pay for this in every town and city in the US, I'm ready to go on board and back the proposal.

Would you gasp out of surprise, but like anyway any politician who said that all politicians, state or national, in an effort to help balance the budgets, take a 25% pay cut, accept no fringe benefits and reduce the size of their staff.
Now, back to what might really happen.4 AnswersPolitics9 years ago
Many years ago, I inherited a rifle and a handgun from my grandfather. I have little opportunity to use them and cleaned them and put them away. I found the ammunition for both. It is quite old. Is it dangerous? How can I dispose of it safely?3 AnswersHunting10 years ago

This started a few weeks ago. Sometimes, I turn on my iMac, not the Intel version but just before that, and the little loudspeaker on the menu bar is gone, and none of the sound on anything works. Sometimes, I turn on the computer and all is well with the world. Is this something I can fix myself, and how do I do it?1 AnswerDesktops1 decade ago
I looked in the King James Version. It says, "thou shalt not kill." The Revised Standard Version also uses the word "kill". The New English Bible and the New International Version use the word "murder". Some people have told me that the Bible should be taken literally word for word. If that is so, then killing and murdering are the same thing. If I drop my hammer off the roof and it hits my neighbor on the head and he dies, I've murdered him. If they don't mean the same thing, then one of the Bibles is wrong. If it is wrong here, how do I know it's right anywhere else? How do I know which Bible is right? Will a newer translation come along in a few years that will make all previous Bibles incorrect.
I know they could all be wrong, but they can't all be right. How can a person know, if knowing is possible at all?16 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago
Years ago a radio station in the area would play a recording of Burt Reynolds singing something. I think it was called "Let's Do Something Cheap and Insensitive" or something like that. Does anybody know the real name of this song so I can start a search for a copy of it.1 AnswerCelebrities1 decade ago
