Went to LA decom last night. Pretty cool, more thump music than i care for, but some great piano and later tech/jazz with a live trumpet.

I was struck by the sense that there was a uniform for a lot of people.

Whiskey anyone?

There are some free editors that will allow you to convert to other formats (mp3, Flac, Ogg Vorbis, etc.) and back to cd format. In the process you can adjust the volume level of the recording. Can't think of any in mac format right off the top of my head though. But they are out there.

Had a pair of Swiss gals visit our camp in '97 in absolutely authentic dirndls. That was a good year for dirndls, as I recall.

Whu.... huh?

Looks like what may work, and is free is:

Wait, is this is response to the Red Bull comment? Because Red Bull is Austrian. Of course, that's dirndl country, too, of course.
Now, Innsbruck, Innsbruck is a place I wouldn't want to fly in and out of. I"m sure I've said this before, but it's a classic hanging or u-shaped valley, and those walls are steep. Seeing a plane try to fly out of there is something! Go to Munchen and take a bus.

It's a Thai/Austrian collaboration.

Austrian entrepreneur Dietrich Mateschitz was inspired by a pre-existing energy drink named Krating Daeng (Thai: กระทิงแดง, Thai pronunciation: [kràtʰiŋ dɛːŋ]), which was first invented and sold in Thailand

there's a lot of good rescources on line, about those.......I've had issues with them, too.
catalytic, in some cases are very efficient at using propane, and "re-burners" let off little to no CO. but, still gotta be so careful in an enclosed space.

Well this one has not been used for some time I think. There are old wasps nests in the vents. But I am told that there is not much to them and should not be too much to fix. Fortunately got some OT this week so should be able to get it done.
