    What are you reading now?

    I am absolutely the opposite. I had to read the Iliad in high school (30 years ago). I got it on tapes and listened to it on high speed and I think it's the only book from that year I remember at all.

    I will happily pay an extra $5 to not support Amazon. https://www.digitalmusicnews.com/2018/12/25/streaming-music-services-pay-2019/

    Ye Macce Threade

    My mother stopped by my house the other day. While looking for her key to the back door*, she set her Macbook (2013 MBA I believe) down on the table that was sitting there. Unfortunately, that table turned out to be a tile wetsaw, and she consequently plunged her computer into a water bath. We dried it off and covered it with rice to no avail. The Apple store has declared it dead and sold her a new computer. Fortunately everything important was backed up. But, are there any tips or tricks to either salvaging the computer, or at least to recovering the non-essential stuff that might not have been backed up? * the clear moral here is to not give your mother a key to your house.

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Oy. There is a section of our house fed by galvanized plumbing wrapped in "an asbestos like material" that runs through an unreachable crawl space. Redoing it is going to involve demoing much of the entryway which looks like this.

    Amplifier porn

    I like those, and don't mind the whole thing as an acoustical art installation. But it is a shitty amplifier being sold for a lot of money.

    From the datasheet for those Hammond output transformers: Designed for general purpose or replacement use (not Hi-Fi), in single ended, tube output circuits. Frequency response: 100 Hz. - 15 Khz at full rated power (+/- 1db max. - ref. 1 Khz). For full frequency response (20 Hz. to 20 Khz.) - see our 1627-1642 Series. A single one of those circuits in a plywood case should run you about $400. And be used in a garage system at best.

    What are you listening to Part the Third

    I had the unique experience of hearing this album years before hearing their debut and thus being able to judge it on it's own and not in comparison. Not nearly as groundbreaking, but a solid record.
