Two entirely unrelated questions!!
1.Why do DVDs play so quietly on my computer?
I use Windows XP if that matters. No matter what program I play DVDs through, PowerDVD or Windows Media, and no matter if they're the actual DVDs or DVD files I ripped through DVDShrink, I always have to turn my speakers up WAY loud for them to be decently audible. Then I always forget to turn it back down and later my computer screams
YOU'VE GOT MAIL!!
... and I wet myself. So if anyone knows any ways I can make DVDs play louder... let me know and save me some changes of underwear.
ETA I should mention that I I turn up everything I know how to turn up, I'm just wondering if I'm missing something. I turn up the DVD program, the main volume of the computer, and all the sub-controls like Video, CD Audio, etc. I've also had this same problem with 2 different sets of speakers, so it's not them... Really this sounds pretty hopeless ;)
2. Why am I working this summer?
Well, I'm working to give me something to do other than watching reruns on TV, sleeping too much, and eating recreationally. But I'm working like 30 hours/week (which I might drop to 20) at $6.50/hour and I have no real need for this money. I mean I have kind of a general idea of "I'm earning my own money so when I buy clothes or order takeout over this summer or at school next year, it's no longer my Dad's money, who is already paying my college tuition." It's more fun though to have a specific goal in mind. What should I save up for? Or what philosophy should I tell myself to justify my job?
