I got almost 100 mini-discs full of beats, mixes, & music I've transferred from vinyl, this thing was ahead of it's time, better than a cd-burner if you ask me, making mixes with it was waaayyy better than recording to cassette; I just wished I had waited for the model with digital out on it, cause burning music from mini-disc to cd was a pain.
Anyway I've been having tons of trouble with it for the past few years but the deck finally stopped working earlier this year, the last thing I used to record with it was the beats off my beat-tape I put out last year.

I only do 2-3 days a week so I'm not as dedicated as I could be. My current job we do a type of programming but the platform is company specific. What I'm trying to learn now are the basics and we'll see where it goes
I'm also down a bit of a Minidisc hole myself. I had one back in high school and loved it, but then I found out last year that people were putting out limited edition releases on MD like they do on cassette. I copped a player off eBay and have been buying albums on the format since then.
Now I have two portables (Sony MZ-707 and Sony MZ-E75) and like 15 albums lol.
