Thanks, Fujidude. I have two cassettes waiting for you and am just waiting to see if I can get a few more before sending them to you.

Since I've gotten the cassette deck setup and hooked into my computer, I've finally started getting to making mp3s out of my music tape collection. Thanks to this project.

I've not been paying attention... Great to see all the updates...


Farb, I'll PM you in a few days and we can revisit my collection and see what you still need.


on a slightly related note, if anyone has RED RAT Software on disk that you might be willing to sell for a reasonable price let me know.

Torrent app on Asus router? Sounds interesting... Is there a web page somewhere that shows how it works, etc?


I've a Asus RT-AC68U router dat has a dual core-cpu, 256MB ram and an USB-3 port. It cost a little more than a regular router but it has enough power to act as Media and File server by attaching a USB external disk to it. And it is very easy to install the ASUS download master on it so it can download using Bit Torrent, NZB and aMule protocols without the need for a PC.


Here a YouTube movie showing how it works:





And here a screenshot of the preservation torrents seeding on my router:

Thanks man.. I've always wanted to offload some "functions" off of my pc. So I'm always looking for ways to do that.


My current NAS can run torrent software but it is kinda buggy and adding external drives does not seem to work so well.


I've yet to test it but my router does allow connecting and sharing of a usb drive, but that is it.
