    The L3 is a single feed (not single ended) differential tube amp. The T4 is a parafeed differential hybrid amp. The T5 will be, if it every gets done, a more powerful version of the T4 that also does away with the parafeed cap. The T4 was designed to be less expensive by reducing the power and by eliminating a bunch of assembly labor. But within its output limits I think it is 98% of the quality of the other amps. There are of course a few things you can do with a higher budget, but they are mostly gild on a lily.

    It's kind of the very definition of being Ikea-looking. https://www.fastcompany.com/3063312/poaeng-the-little-known-history-of-ikeas-most-famous-chair

    I am not really a fan of Crate & Barrel, but I think they got this chair just right. It is not too expensive, and it is very comfortable. Compared to other Z Chair knockoffs, the proportions are good. Short of finding something actually from the middle of last century, that would be my go to.

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Congratulations on the new kitten. Sorry to hear about the other news. The best thing you can do with that cardboard carrier is to throw it out - cats can break out of them, and they can run faster than you can. The book below is recommended.
  9. Windows 10 has antivirus built in and it works fine. Malwarebytes is good for other sorts of malware. Probably more important is locking the system down. There are a lot of default settings to disable, but once done it seems to be relatively OK.

    19V Linear PSU for PC

    Very few, if any, components in a computer run off of 19V. There are doubtless myriad switchers throughout. What is the benefit of a linear supply here?

    An interesting soccer stat - scoring second is better than scoring first: https://web.archive.org/web/20080829180544/https://www.salon.com/sports/col/kaufman/2006/06/30/friday/index.html https://www.salon.com/2007/05/24/thursday_252/ https://www.salon.com/2006/06/22/thursday_209/
