I went to a New Year's Eve party in a pub in North London. It was a great night and the DJ had a good selection of tunes... Only problem was that she was using vinyl.

This meant that everytime someone got a little bit too excited near the turntable, jumping up and down to celebrate the arrival of 2007 for example, the record would jump.

I know that there are DJs who swear by vinyl. And I know that mixing vinyl is a different thing all together - although the iPod DJs that I know can blend two iPods together very skillfully. But, honestly, what's the point in vinyl if the slightest knock makes the record skip?
