    20 Things Iíve Learned as a Developer

    20 Things Iíve Learned
    as a Developer

    [meant to be all in good fun]

    1. This vs That threads are pointless every time, except for a laugh.
    2. Craig Sharmat is the nicest guy you will ever meet. (I would say similar of Frank, Joseph Burrell and Tom Hopkins)
    3. V.I. gets hacked, and threads disappear. N.S. gets interesting, and threads disappear.
    4. More GigaBytes will not make you happy.
    5. Ok, more GigaBytes will make you happy, until your credit card statement arrives.
    6. All sample developers have some form, no matter how slight, of a mental illness. (including, but not limited to, paranoia, bipolar disorder, and/or world domination tendencies)
    7. Styxx will have another 500 posts by the time I finish typing this.
    8. Recording dry is better.
    9. Nothing makes me prouder than when someone posts a piece theyíve made with my samples.
    10. Developers work really really really hard on their libraries; so cut them some slack if one sample out of 50,000 has an issue. They will fix it for you if you kindly bring it to their attention.
    11. Recording in a hall is better.
    12. Almost every developer has more than one alias on the boards; some even have conversations with themselves/their multiple aliases. (see #6)
    13. The people doing the most interesting things are also the people getting the least amount of attention.
    14. Most of us will never feel like we already have everything we need to make great music, but if only we had that one last library due out next month, that would do it!
    15. Group Buys are the worst idea since invading Iraq.
    16. The ďHollywoodĒ sound doesnít exist, unless someone with only 3 posts is giving their expert opinion on the differences between EW and VSL.
    17. Thereís no pleasing Simon Ravn.
    18. Did you instantly notice that all the comments mentioning developerís mental health were numbered with multiples of six (including this one )? If so, maybe you should be a developer too!
    19. Size does, in fact, matter.
    20. Size does, in fact, matter. [whoa, I thought we would have eliminated the machine gun effect by í06!?!]

    this thread is too interesting for NS therefor that damn samurai might come along and destroy it.

    ....."8-Recording dry is better"........"11-Recording in a hall is better"...

    Who usually wins when you sit around having this argument with yourself?

    I don't know. I've been working with this sampled VI, but recently ordered that one, and the CD is in the mail. I'm thinking it shuould be a big improvement. But for those of you who own both this and that, which one is better? Do they blend well together?

    Thanks for brightening my morning with such wit.
