The Power Of eBay

You might not think that this is very interesting but I'm currently bidding for an item on eBay.
It's interesting for me because it's only the third eBay auction I've been involved in and this time I really want to win.
I really am a late-comer to eBay but I have been a late-comer to all technology all my life. This isn't a bad thing because by the time I'm ready to come on board most of the problems have been ironed out.
The thing is that I really want to get to grips with eBay because I have a few things to sell. I need to buy first to get a ranking then I have a better chance of selling.
So here I am bidding and just about winning. I'm determined that I'll win this one.
I'll let you know how it goes.
Fingers crossed. Wish me luck.

Binaural Audio

This is my completed 'Dummy Head' mic. It's not very attractive but it's practical and will do what I need to. It's basically a sponge football with a piece of dowel stuck through the middle and two tie clip mics mounted on each end of the dowel. The whole thing sits on a desktop mic stand. The total cost including the mics was £51 which isn't bad.
I was going to mount the mics on an old pair of glasses but I was worried about noise as I moved about. This little structure is noise free and pretty stable too.
I'm taking the whole thing to Cornwall to record some beach sounds and stuff. I'll put the recordings online as soon as I get my new PC.

Holiday Nearly

There are 13 days to go until the long drive to Cornwall and a well deserved holiday.
I'm really looking forward to my 2 week holiday and I think it's well deserved too.
I'm preparing a few essentials to take with me and over the next few days I'll tell you all about it.
