The volume control on my computer. It only has 100 levels - well not even that. The lowest level that plays anything is "6" and that is way too loud for Radio Paradise as background, even if I set the RP web player level as low as it goes.

Incidentally RP is considerably louder than other stuff like Youtube and my other internet radio stations at the same volume setting.
 

i use powered speakers with a volume knob/remote   (edifier 1850)

so the computer level is set at 75-80% or so and i do the tweaking with the speaker volume

i haven't noticed the yt thing versus rp

good luck and good listening

There's a taco truck down by the Shell station that makes really killer 'al pastor', that's not a bad quest either.

Where?
 
At your house...
I mean some place in Glendale.
I think it was near a music store. Small local chain. Wahoo's maybe?

oh. I looked it up. Bigger than local chain lol.

 
I believe it was BBQ at my house. Later on it was dry toast & water. Either way you were the best dinner guest ever. Eventually we graduated to midnight breakfast at Pete’s Kitchen where yours took up a bit more than half the table. 

Then life happened & you were off to your homeland. I miss you more than I can say. I mourn Shiloh with you.  I mourn the distance.

Meanwhile you still haven’t told me where to find those  tacos. Just as well, they wouldn’t taste as sweet without you across the both from me, marveling at how every female in the place - young, old, with their partner or not - become intoxicated by your very spirit.

And horny.
 
Lol. Heck I hope I'm not THAT obvious...

What's the world coming to? Crimes against humanity. Cultural appropriation. And disgusting.

Don't get me started on the restaurant that served me fish tacos with wheat tortillas. 
 
 Standard 2 questions when fish tacos are on the menu are: Corn or flour? grilled or fried?  Fried is iffy, but I'll do it now and then. No corn - I'm ordering something else, and I'm doubtful it will be much good from someone who serves fish tacos on flour tortillas. 

 
The fried fish was actually ok, but overall not the best. I suppose that's what I get for ordering them at a combo American-Nepalese restaurant. I usually order from the Nepalese side of the menu which it pretty good.

Ironically, there is a place in Melbourne that makes better corn tortillas than I've had anywhere in the US

 

A couple of summers ago we went to the Taco Truck Showdown... 130 taco trucks from up and down California's Central Valley. First one I had was stunning. Handmade (corn), everything fresh and from scratch, not sure what the meat was because I just said "surprise me" so could have been carnitas or lengua, can't remember. I would have had more but did you see the part about 130 taco trucks? I wandered around and tried half a dozen more, most were good, delicious, but none were up to the level of the first one. The winner, which against all odds (literally) was one of the 6 I tried, was a greasy carnitas that was over-salty and anything added was added by the customers. So most people were eating it without any salsa, cabbage, nothin'.

So anyway, by scientific review, fewer than 1 in 100 tacos is worth a damn.
 

I hear that 90% of everything is crap. 
 

or made up statistics.
 
Is that a reference to Todd Snider's song?
