Eee, I remember buying the first CD release when it was "only twenty years ago today"
I've said this before on other sites, but I like it, so I'll say it again. "Vinyl is the Instagram of Audio". Except, with vinyl once you've chosen your stylus/cartridge/arm/turntable, it as if you've chosen to apply a single Instagram filter to all your future photos with only minor tweaks being available to you. Either way, the end result bears little resemblance to the source material (of course, with vinyl, even the source is pre-filtered). I think I may have stretched the metaphor a bit far, but, hey, I got it back on the photography topic.
I can't emphasise enough how important this is. I live an Shanghai which is one of the most polluted cities around. Recently I noticed that my Macbook would sometimes die under load and that even at idle, the cpu temp was between 80ºC and 90ºC. Initially I thought it was the extra load driving my newly acquired 27" Cinema display causing the extra heat. However I stripped it down and removed all of the accumulated dust from the fan exhaust. The results were immediate and impressive. Now at idle, the cpu temp sits between 55ºC and 65ºC Even under load, it rarely tops 85ºC, its previous idle temperature.
