MP3’s on Punch Cards, Bluetooth Car Hacks, and Jack Bauer

Some fun nerd facts for you on this gloomy Wednesday morning in Homer, Alaska (where is the fucking sun?)

  1. How many punch cards would it take to represent a 3–minute MP3 file?  40,960 (or 5’ 9” of punch cards – two inches shorter than Jack Bauer). 
  2. Can I listen to your conversation in your car and or talk to you if you have a bluetooth enabled car?  Um – yes.
  3. Is Jack Bauer going to be on 24 this season?  Looks like it! (and thank god he’ll have a new girlfriend).

Which does Brad care most about: 1, 2, or 3?  I wonder if Jack is going to use the cool bluetooth car hack in the upcoming season.

    Some time on your hands this morning? Hehe

    Hmmm…. we’re having “the usual” summer Boulder weather – threats of thunderstorms in the afternoon. Just enough rain to make water spots on the dust on vehicles! Bring the rain back with you next month – we need it!

  • Jack Bauer is the man!!! After last season ended I was hoping he’d come back. It’s cool to hear that you’re a big fan too.

  • They should bring back Terri from the dead – she was hotter than the last GFs.

    We found this blog entry very interesting so we’ve added a Trackback to it on our site.

  • In one of the comment sectors of a blog which was itself commenting on the ‘punch-card’ item, the computation was discussed that
    “a 30 minute wedding video that I shot recently for a friend is equivalent to just under 100 million punch cards, in particular, it would be 89,910,000 cards. That’s 45,000 boxes of cards. If each box is 3 1/4″ high, the stack of boxes would top 2.3 miles (== 12187.5 feet, or 146,250 inches, not counting for gravitational compression of the lower boxes of cards). They would not fit in the trunk of my car.”

    My only comment would be ‘I wonder what sort of car he drives?’
