How long ago? You might be able to take it back for a refund and buy this one instead, helping BT in the process. :yes:

Since we are using this thread as a seller's market, does anyone also want a slightly used ink printer for like $50?

It stands for MPEG Layer 3.

MPEG itself is an acronym for Moving Picture Experts Group.

MP3 is a way of encoding the audio for a video so that it takes up as little space as possible but is still of an acceptable enough higher quality.

It is usually combined with a video-only portion encoded in MPEG1, MPEG2, or MPEG4 algorithm to form a complete video/audio sequence.

MPEG1 was the original video encoding algorithm and many videos are still encoded with it. It specifies a normal video resolution of 320 x 240 or 352 x 288 and a max bitrate of 1.1 Mbps.

MPEG2 is the main format used on those commercial DVD movies you buy. It specifies a normal video resolution of 720 x 480 (16:9 anamorphic widescreen) and a max bitrate of 10 Mbps.

MPEG4 was designed for Internet online video streaming. It is also frequently used in portable media players (like the iPod or Creative Zen).

Actually, I just thought it was a great deal. I'm going to get at least one of these little flash drives and wanted to share the deal. I haven't seen a 2 gigger for this cheap anywhere else.

For selling stuff directly, I set up the free classified section. I know nobody looks in there now, but that's because there are no ads & there are no ads because nobody looks there. Someone has to get it started. Got something you want to sell? Put a free ad in the Free Classified section. If we need more/new categories, let me know and I'll add them.

$50 is a bit for a used printer. You can almost get a new one for that these days. Sad really, it cost more to buy the ink cartridges, than it does to buy a whole new printer these days.

The ink is definitely overpriced.

They (HP, Epson, Canon) take like maybe $3 worth of ink and plastic and sell it for up 10 times that much. :unsure:

Database programs tend to be the hardest to learn of the main 'office' apps. Especially that scripting language.

Is this flash drive reliable and will it hold 1.7 gigs?????
