    Any New Year's resolutions?

    Have any New Year's resolutions you'd like to share? Mine are 3840 x 2160 pixels, and 24 bits/96KHz.

    Mine will be an HDR year. But I may give up most media ( except music ) about 1/3 of the way through, for health reasons.

    I'm reolved to never have a New Year's resolution.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    My last New Year's resolution was to never have any more New Year's resolutions. I've actually stuck to it.

    That's generally been mine, but I'd like to loose a little weight and exercise more consistently.

    My daughter made a resolution to floss more often, because that's one she might actually keep. Seems solid.

    My New Year's Resolution is to be a little less resolute this year.

    that's the easiest to keep, and I it managed every time.

    that is one that I (really) should actually take and try to stick to it, but I'm always a pessimistic bugger.
    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicts to complete nutcases.

    Not really a new years resolution but more a general one: to continue to reduce my ecological footprint.

    My resolution is to stop day dreaming about gutting my nation's political "leaders" like trout, be more positive, get constructively involved in fomenting change, finally get over my irrational, prolonged grief at the passing of David Allen, listen to more Gong/D.A. and try to be more ebullient like the Divided Alien.

    I've always found trying to get more exercise an exercise in futility.

    My resolution is to thin out my music collection and spend more time listening. I’ve increased listening time quite a bit this but I’ve realized there’s a lot of stuff I don’t need to hang onto.

    And I want to read more this year.

    That's mine, too; start selling all those "pretty good" albums, and completist albums, and albums that the critics say I have to have, and albums that I inexplicably used to like, etc. etc. etc.

    More like a waste of my precious present time.... But this could buy me "free" time in my later years.

    I've done that for decades (in my search for shelf space) so there isn't all that much that doesn't deserve to be there, but it could be time to do another clean-up.
