My neighbour blamed my gravel for making him fall.
But it was his own dumb asphalt!
Can anyone recommend a good digital audio interface for music recording?
I would like something with at least 8 inputs, though I'm also interested in anything cheap even if it has fewer than that.
Mine is a PCI card, but that seems to be old tech now -- and it would be nice to have something that could work over USB, for use with a laptop.
I'll want to use it with Linux, but at this point I'll take recommendations for anything even if you don't know whether there are Linux drivers; I'll do the research and/or take the risks.

It's important to celebrate today's important Supreme Court win. When we wake up tomorrow feeling refreshed, please remember that the "Title VII" that's the subject of today's ruling and the "Title IX" that was in last week's news refer to sections of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Our win is the direct result of vital groundwork from dedicated Black activists, and they still need our help.
Some hope for PTSD: editing memories.

“It seems like we’re on the verge of a dictatorship,” said Ms. Bhatt, who came to Washington to attend college 30 years ago and said she was accustomed to living with the region’s heavily guarded presence. The last week, though, has felt jarringly different.
“After 9/11...you always had the sense that they were protecting you, that the cops were your friends. Now these same men feel like they’re fighting against us.”
"U.S. Security forces hunt down #journalists..."
A partial list of (bad) police actions the past few days.
Please note: I am NOT anti-police, nor anti-government. The point is this: if #police do not restrain themselves, do not obey the law of the land, do not hold themselves accountable, then this is what the world sees. "U.S. Security forces hunt down journalists..."
There are a lot of people who can't let go of misinformation even after it's revealed that their previous information was incorrect. This is why it's so important that factual news be repeated more often than lies. A lie often repeated becomes the reality people live. A society cannot abide with untruths driving policy.
Phone-based scams are becoming increasingly sophisticated and hard for even experts to detect.
If you get a call from a financial institution, the best defense is to hang up and call them back, using a number you look up yourself online.
Meet the Yaybahar, a musical instrument with a decidedly otherworldly flair.
#Spoonerisms are named after a man who kept transposing syllables of words, and often their meanings. His classes in Oxford were often packed with students (even those not his own) hoping to catch him in what they endearingly called a Spoonerism.
