  • Different cds rip to different file sizes?

    I have been ripping my cds to my ps3 in 320 mp3 format for a long time now but just noticed that some store bought cds of similar length rip to much different file sizes. For example Biohazard - State Of The World Address @ 57'33'' rips to 54MB and Black Sabbath - 13 @ 53'33" rips to 123MB. My guess is cd production quality but... show more

My guess is cd production quality but i can't find any immediate notes to this in a google search. If this is the case, by how much and how often do bought cds vary and if not, then what is the reason for the different file sizes. Also if they are starting off at different quality then how come they don't rip down to the same quality if all i am suppose to be getting is 320 mp3 as the final ripped product?

  • Philips clipper and shaver charger swapability?

One of them has 120-240V --- 50/60Hz - 9W and the other, the newer one has 120-240V --- 50/60Hz - 7.5W as there input rating. So how are these input ratings and their variance in wattage determined and can I safely charge both shaver and clipper with either charger?

  • Can a hot water tank empty faster than it fills?

    I was having a shower with the immersion heater still on when i thought that maybe the tank could empty faster than it could fill and damage the heating element....i guess mine is ok because the mains pressure is good and the shower is not very strong but then there are showers with pumps attached, could this happen to one of them?

  • Playstation looping playing album?

    Is there a way to stop albums looping and playing start to finish over and over the way they are as default on the ps3. If i pick an album to play it plays untill it gets to the end and then it automatically starts the album from the beginning again, so i would like an option to stop this and only let the album play once.

    Why are most air vents located at the top of a wall and also trickle vents on windows are located at the top of the window. I have a window with no room on the frame to install a trickle vent at the top and can only install one in the middle, will it not function as required if i do so?
