Listen in, listen Ian!
Pevsner guides, so I went and got some today. They didn't have the North London one, instead I got the guides for the City, Westminster and Manchester and south-east Lancashire. Mmm, tasty books.Blackwells are currently doing a 3 for 2 offer on |
Right, technical questions:
1. When I have earphones plugged into my laptop, it doesn't cut the sound from the speakers, although the earphones do work. I'm sure it used to cut the speakers, and I hope it did or I've annoyed lots of people on trains this year. Is this likely to be a hardware or operating system issue? And if it's OS, well, does anyone know why it might have started doing this in Ubuntu 7.10?
2. I have an amp that I got from hoshuteki that has my CD player, my record player and my computer plugged into it. The computer seems to be sending output to it at a much lower level than the other bits. Might this have anything to do with the input on the amp I chose for the computer? I chose to use the CBL/SAT one as there isn't one that says "Computer". Or do computers just send a quiter signal, and I'll have to mess with the volume every time I change the input?
