  1. I've been doing the same thing Jim! I picked up one from Pioneer that opens up so that disk don't get stuck inside. Works well but man is ripping CDs slow. I've set up a Roon server on my imac since it is on all the time and got a 2 bay RAID 1 harddrive that is networked and is in the closet. Roon is fucking awesome! Love been able to steam music anywhere in the house I want! Planning to replace my Airport Express (ethernet to optical) with the Rasberry Pi + Ropiee (eithernet to USB) that Marc suggested so I can get hires in the music room. Today, I moved around my headphone setups for kicks (one at my desk and one in the music room). Decided that the GS-X mk2 needed to be near its cousin BHSE. Plus, it is a good way to procrastinate grading.
  2. Mastercraft X26 Wakesurfing boat please and then invite me up and then sell it to me for half price when you get tired of it. https://www.mastercraft.com/boat/detail/x26
  3. Thanks so much for the birthday wishes, I’ve successfully made it half way to 90! Spent the day at home not grading exams!!! Actually got time to set up the Roon music server and 6Gb RAID networked storage so that was fun. Yumi and I watched Becoming (about Michelle Obama), ate fajitas, and drank margaritas. So a pretty awesome day!
  4. Thanks! I’ll look into this. I like having one I can manage on my phone so I might go with the Flame Boss.
  5. Nate: I’ve had a Weber Smokey Mountain and they work great if you want to constantly pay attention to them to make sure the temp stays at the right temp, etc. Plus I always found myself cleaning it. If you want charcoal, go with a kamado Grill. My neighbor has a Kamado Joe and it works great. It’s a lot easier to open than the Big Green Egg because of its air lift hinge. They are heavy! That said, I have a Traeger and love the pellet system. I should upgrade the PID. Suggestions from Al or Naaman?
  6. Nevermind, I was confused by Marc's post but get it now.
  7. I never file taxes in April since it is the busiest time of the year for me. Thank goodness I don't eve have to estimate the taxes I owe until July!!!
  8. Wow, their stuff looks amazing! Can’t wait to check them out the next time I’m in Germany (they also seem to have a dealer outside of Austin).
  9. Good choice! I’ve never found a keyboard case I liked so I can’t help you there. Decided to just deal with the weight and got a 16” MBP when I need to type.
  10. Happy belated birthday Jeff!!!
  11. Got to see Sarah McLachlan for the first time tonight. Such a great concert.
  12. Aww, cute! Here are my kitties. They are about 6 months old - we got them in November. They are super loving.
  13. Has anyone heard both the Aeon and Ether flow (closed back)? I have a pair of Aeon closed backs that I enjoy when I need to have closed headphones. I am thinking of trying the Ether flow since hoping it might be a bit more open sounding and neutral.
  14. Made a brisket today and just put it in the cooler. Will be having brisket breakfast tacos tomorrow morning and making brisket tamales with them tomorrow!
  15. Glad you are doing better Jose. That is pretty scary.
