The Daily Ping

P is for Ping. That's good enough for me.

Do you have the audacity?!

When I first tried Audacity, the open source, cross-platform audio editor, it was still in its early stages. While it was pretty darn good for a free application, it was still pretty buggy and it crashed a lot. Now, though, it’s come quite a distance and is a worthy contender to similar shareware audio editors. With VST plug-in capability coming any day, decent built-in effects, a familiar user interface, and basic multi-tracking capability, Audacity is pretty impressive for a download that costs only a few minutes of your time. You can also save directly to MP3 format if you download lame_enc.dll separately (for licensing reasons, it couldn’t be included in the base Audacity installation).

Of all the downloads available at Sourceforge, this is one of the few I keep a daily eye on for developments.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
