  1. Jim, I was going to argue that it's quite possible that it could belong to a married gay couple. Then I noticed the plywood speaker and component plinths. Not possible!

  3. listening to "Standin' in the Rain" so much growing up, probably made me eventually move to Washington... two minute and seven second intro for a 4:19 song -- crazy

  4. Ha. Thanks all for your help. In the end I went with a Magrette Regattare Tiki for a decent price in comparison to the other final choices. New Zealand Post, US Customs, and the local Post Office did everything they could to get it to me by 2024, but it arrived a couple days ago. A little too big, a little too heavy, but uncomplicated.

  5. I never noticed that, I love vocal songs with ~> 50% instrumental. Great album. I listened to The Jungle quite a bit. “And they danced!...”. Jeff Lynne is a brilliant producer. Me: Hum —first album in over 22 years! Shoegaze heaven. https://humband.bandcamp.com/releases

  15. No Boot Camp on Apple silicon for now: https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2020/06/heres-whats-happening-to-boot-camp-amid-the-apple-silicon-transition/ The Verge writes that Microsoft has not given out a Windows 10 ARM license (yet) and virtualization like Fusion or Parallels might take a while: https://www.theverge.com/2020/6/24/21302213/apple-silicon-mac-arm-windows-support-boot-camp We'll have wait to see if this means Apple will offer both CPU options, e.g., iMacs with ARM or Intel processors.

  16. Jim - don’t know if this will help for future integration but I wanted to correct myself, my sub crossover is a little lower than I had stated, currently at ~75hz. Alerion is spec’d down to 70hz.

  17. Electric fuel pump. Fortunately I didn't have to drop the tank, but I did have to take out the entire back seat and trunk liner, then work through an access hole that some galaxy brain at GM made about half an inch too small for the pump and locking ring to fit through.

  21. Once again I'm just blown away by what is possible in these flagship gaming titles. The technical mastery, storytelling brilliance, art, design, music and attention to even the smallest of details all comes together to create an experience that just can't be had in other artistic mediums. What a ride The Last of Us 2 was. I came in skeptical that the game could have the impact of its predecessor, but the developers, in my opinion, have delivered a very fitting sequel to the beloved if controversial, original game. The emotional impacts were as compelling as anything I've played. To m

  23. Just discovered it today, myself. Was searching for all versions of “Push the Sky Away” on Tidal and ran across two covers (in addition to the original and several live versions). Loved it, listened to the rest of the album. Love how they translated “Red Right Hand” to a lullaby. The rest didn’t need as much work to make it less rocky. Love how melodic the source material is, their versions really bring that out. Now listening to Endless River because of a certain discussion on Facebook.

  32. Donald Brinegar Singers, Celebration Collection Yes, really. The lead singer of Al1ce shared privately with me that she sings on here, so I gave it a serious listen and it's so peaceful and soothing and perfectly sung I can't help but love it.

  34. I managed to get my kgsshv project done without creating some big mess and spark, and I want to thank KG for his design , Birgir and many member here for their generous contributions. oyaide L/i50 OFC is used as umbilical cords but is not shown here. later on a L/R balance control will be installed. The power and the amplifying section is about the same size so they can be stacked together. The heat sink size is less than ideal and it runs so hot that I can barely touch. My IR thermometer reads 47 oc but I think it is inaccurate due to the shiny appearance of the heatsink. But then I t

  35. When on call and doing water sports the smart watch works much better than a cellphone. Also for other things like trials I like it more than putting the phone in an arm band simply because I can look down and see if it's a call I can ignore. The water park and many of the places around the lake also take nfc payments so no wallet needed either. Depending on the activity I am not above double fisting it.

  36. I think that we're nearing the day of an integrated traditional watch with truly essential smart functions. I just need notifications on my wrist, I don't need or want to make calls or take the battery life hit that it brings. I get that there is a market for that, I'm just not it. I know I'm a broken record but until Apple gets me a week of run time without a charger I'm not a buyer. I charge my Garmin so infrequently I hardly think about it. I don't want another daily or every other day charging ritual. If we some how get a bonus this year it'll likely go into upgrading the Fenix as the HR

  37. Sometimes you have to learn to love something less expensive... I had the same reaction to a Swatch Royal Blue Rebel (SUOS702) while on vacation. I've learned that sometimes you find something (or someone) perfect and you'll regret not acting for the rest of your life. The relationship was consummated immediately. 😍
