Attended an amazing string trio performance of the Goldberg Variations tonight, and this performance was referenced as one of the inspirations.

I love records but, as someone who studied electronics I've always found some of the pro-vinyl theorism nauseating to listen to. Lately, I've been hearing a lot of these folks talk about vinyl having a wider dynamic range than CDs. This article identifies so many of the vinyl positives that are driven by vinyl's limitations, and many of the CD's negatives that are driven by the CD's lack of limitations. 
Vinyl advocates like Neil Young and Jack White contend that an LP's analog playback produces honest, authentic sound, while digital formats like the CD ...

So it finally came down to Visio not being an option. My first reaction to this was to try something sad and simply sketch out all my screen designs in Word, which was in two words: eventually awful. Inkspace has been doing a good job for me. I wish I'd found it a year ago.  
Inkscape is professional quality vector graphics software which runs on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
