Though I'm in the process of trying to get my hands on some LM4562 OpAmps to replace the ones on my card. People have said that it makes a significant improvement to the sound quality

Blah, I hate apartment living. I'm 4 years out of college and when I get back to the states next year I'm definately not gonna waste money on rent, I'll buy a house, invest in it, then sell it for more. Can't wait. Now if only I knew what state my company actually plans on sending me to in 6 months...

My house is well worth over a million, but who cares right? My parents are immigrants and worked really hard. Now i get to enjoy this one million dollar home and they even own their own apartments that get income.
