    What to do with old CDs?

    Sorry Terry, but you are mistaking my mocking tone for a defensive one. Not so, I thought I made it clear I was relaxed about the issue and really couldn't give a hoot about the legal technicalities. I have nothing to fear and nothing to be ashamed of. I'm just having a chuckle at you guys and the predictable circular conversation between hand-wringers and know it alls about a relative non issue. Just my take on things, don't read too much into it. Oh and I think you have me confused with someone else, I never commented on second hand sellers. NB most of you guys ignored the cue from Sir Zingers to dive into a more interesting topic of morals and personal ethics. Still going round that same roundabout...... [emoji848] Enjoy

    Indeedery. I am comfortable in the fact that I spend a significant amount on buying music, which more than assauges any guilt I should feel about participating in any *perceived* wrong doing. I am awesome because I still buy music[emoji445][emoji108]

    I'm pretty relaxed with my position. Anybody need a massage?

    Morality is a very subjective concept

    What Cartridge Re-tips have you done?

    Another good point. I would hope that the technician provides new specifications to the client.

    What Cartridge Re-tips have you done?

    Good point, but a lot of folks like to “upgrade" their carts with a better stylus/cantilever. Denon dl103 variants spring to mind.

    So possession is *still!* 9/10s of the law. The law is stupid in the sense that there are scenarios that it would support a thief.......not that a modern thief would bother stealing anyone's worthless CDs. Seriously, if I paid $30 for a CD back in the day and eventually dispose of it virtually free, I couldn't give a rats arse about the law. As far as I'm concerned, I still own the fcuking music! From another angle, if I have possession of a vinyl record, I have no hesitation to help myself (if I could be bothered) to the files from whatever source I can obtain it for free. Again, if I paid good money for the LP, I own the music! Some of you may have a dim view of my attitude, and have a raft of legal and moral reasons why it is wrong..... but I couldn't care less.

    Cigar confession

    Cuban and a Lonsdale. A perfectly proportioned stick. A mild and nuanced smoke, well suited to the wine and in between a meal of roast pork and the dessert of rice pudding. I have a Partagas serie E #2 tubo lined up for tomorrow. Some say these are a suitable alternative to a Behike. It will be my first so I am looking forward to it!

    Fonseca #1 with a 2004 Lindemans riesling. Lovely!
