Oh, right. I'll drink some more Kool-Aid -- that should clear it right up.

(I didn't get a chance to break for lunch today, so I had a piece of chocolate and peanut butter cake from the break room. I feel like I've been chugging Kool-Aid...)

How many times do we have to explain this to you people? All analog formats have infinite resolution. This has been proven. Eight-track cartridges and answering-machine microcassettes can attack decay better than a fucking electric toothbrush.
