    Happy birthday, Al.
  2. RIP some fuck or another

    I'll try to keep that in mind for the next time he dies. Poor bastard.

  8. Hearing Protection Recommendations needed

    Searched for this topic, and hate to drag an old thread, but I'm finding that as I age, it's becoming more and more important to protect my hearing. Too many places are just ridiculously loud these days. Anyway, on the Ety site, I found this new gizmo to be quite interesting: https://www.etymotic.com/consumer/hearing-protection/mp915.html My guess is that their second generation attempt at this particular product/technology will be the time to jump in, whenever that might be. But there is a lot of good feedback so I'm tempted... and I've spent $299 more foolishly. Could just order several of the ER-20 XS. Last time (several years ago now), I ordered 5 sets of the ER-20, and think I gave most of them away. Where the last pair or two are is anyone's guess...
  9. And now what did you do TODAY?

    Thanks, Craig! Next time for sure. We have an office in London now, so it was an easy stop over for a couple of days. On my way to Monte Carlo in the morning for more meetings on Monday and Tuesday. The human circus was quite good. They could all be Olympic athletes.
  10. And now what did you do TODAY?

    In London, heading to Royal Albert Hall to see Bob Dylan, no The Who, no... Cirque Du Soleil - Ovo.
  11. RIP some fuck or another

    Jo Jo White, 71. RIP. He was an athlete who I admired and by all accounts a good man as well. Rock Chalk Jayhawks. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/16/obituaries/jo-jo-white-dead-boston-celtics.html
  12. RIP some fuck or another

    I hate shit like this, but it happens, I guess. At least he was doing what he loved. RIP, Doc Halladay. Way too young: http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2017/11/07/roy-halladay-former-mlb-star-killed-in-plane-crash-off-florida.html
  13. RIP some fuck or another

    Thanks, Dusty. I hadn't really thought of it that way, at least in terms of rewinding and wondering why I didn't pick up on any signs. But like in your experience with your co-worker, there really weren't any signs. His wife was with him all night and she didn't pick up on anything. You're also right in that the proximity in time somehow makes it hit closer to home, and oddly eerie (for lack of a better word) in some way. It doesn't seem fair, but I guess that has never been a guarantee.
  14. RIP some fuck or another

    Thanks, Gary. Haven't seen you two forever! Hope you're keeping well. I wasn't especially close with Bill, but did have a lot of respect for him. It's just so odd that it happened right after his class reunion when he was out having a good time catching up with people and laughing about old times. I'm dumbfounded though. He was just standing around chatting with people, stone sober, not exerting himself in any way... I've already got an appointment with my cardiologist for Monday of next week when I get back to Cayman. Probably time for another prostate exam as well.
  15. New Magnepan 30.7!

    Interesting. Thanks for sharing. Essentially, it's a new design so really 30.1 but called 30.7 to run parallel to the 20.7. For a big room, they could be a lot of fun.
