    theres a lot of very specific rules to this one...nice job!

    It seems like the intention behind them all is for the submissions to be like little audio advertisements/postcards for our imaginary festival, am I correct?

    sounds. good. -Joanna Geralyn

    You could definitely make it that way if you want, but just think of it as another soundscape dare. smile
    What would I hear if I were to be in a festival of your making?
    I hope the too many restrictions are not too restrictive!

    I am unsure if I will be able to enter my audio port I think is going and mixing isn't to much fun when you have to keep messing with the cord of your headphones yet you KNOW you headphones work fine...

    My newer laptop is not as good as my previous one when it comes to the built in soundcard.
    One of the things it has done in the past was that it simply wound not recognize when something was plugged into the headphones port.
    Saving my work and rebooting always solved the problem. But it is annoying when it happens.

    hmmmm..... erm..... I forgot...

    If its the same problem I had, an electrician/computerguy with a little bit of soldering skill can repair it fairly easy.
    I did it myself a few times now(common problem on consumer electronics).
    Probebly there isnt a good soldering connetion between the jack and the cirquitboard.
    On a lot of connections they dont use a lot of lead, on "not moving" parts this is no problem, but when there is a load on the connetion the solder breaks.
    This gives connection problems off course, but is easy to fix.
    A small soldering iron and some soldering lead is all you need.
    (they dont use lead any more but I dont know an other name)
    On a laptop this isnt so easy probebly, but on a normal computer its a 10/20min fix.
    All you have to find is the broken connection and re-solder it, adding a litlle lead to avoid futere problems.
    Like I said you need some skill for this, but it doesnt have to be expensive to fix.

    Record all the crap you can!! doesnt matter if it sounds like shit.

    I had a similar problem with the power cord input on a laptop a few years ago. if one pushed the power cord in a little too forcefully, the connection on the circuit board snapped. I had it repaired once and then it happened again immediately.

    If thats the case, there is a major design fault, the connector should not be held in place just by the solder on the connection, but should have some kind of reinforcement.
    The repair guy should have noticed this and give you the advice to change this.
    If you repair something, but you dont solve the problem that coused it in the first place, its going to break again sooner or later........ (considering murphy's law probebly sooner)
