  1. Happy birthday Dusty! Have a superb day! And just for you, some Dusty Chalk
  2. The analog thread.

    I've heard the YG Anats at length in an ex-friend's home. They sounded stunning.
  3. RIP some fuck or another

    Jeeze RIP Gord
  4. The Knuckledragger 3rd Memorial Slow Forum Post

    I copied this to my brother in law. He said "I actually witnessed a guy try this on a Stag Day I was co-hosting a couple of years ago (yes, in Denmark they last all day and all night). We were on Islands Brygge esplanade in the middle of a wonderful, warm, sunny and surprisingly dry afternoon and it “seemed like a good idea at the time”. Two major flaws in his plan, though. 1. He used an espadrille instead of a shoe and 2. He tried to get the cork out in one huge hit. Result? Smashed bottle of wine + glass embedded in espadrille inner sole lining = dickhead goes barefoot all day + no wine until a visit to a local shop"
  5. The ultimate DIY? A Stax SRM-T2!

    Wow - well done digging that out! I'd lost track of the years that had passed since I built my T2
  6. And now what did you do TODAY?

    Cats have simple rules. Meow cuddle me. Meow let me out. Meow feed me. And that is about the limit of their vocabulary and needs. The 3am madness seems to stop once they get a bit older - at least that was the case with ours. Granted there is another level of dialog comprising purrs and chirps, and a particular type of meow which means "I've caught something, and I want to bring it inside and give it to you"; as if we need yet another mangled rodent or frog.

  10. And now what did you do TODAY?

    Wow - you go away for a week or two and there is so much to catch up with! California burns. Bloody hell, what a mess. So many dead, so much destruction. Cats, Jacob? What prompted that? I'd have thought you were a dog person. We got our two back from the cattery after our time away and they are going though the cycle "I want to be out, I want to be in, I want to be out...." repeat maybe ten times until they settle back in. Here, the remains of hurricane Ophelia came across the Atlantic and went mainly through Ireland and Scotland yesterday. 100mph wind. Three dead and widespread damage. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-41627442 . A bit gusty where we live, but we are 400 miles South of the route, so we're OK.
  11. Power switch recommendation

    For some reason that reminded me of this http://www.darwinawards.com/legends/legends1998-10.html

  13. Happy Birthday Steve!

    Have a great one Steve!
  14. Audiophile Chairs

    This is mine. Looks kind of funky by comparison with the mega-chairs on this list - but there was a reason for choosing it. First off, it is comfortable - it supports your lower back and fits like you are being hugged. Second it is easy to move out into the listenening position from where it sits out of the way (where it is when I just took this photo. And finally, and most importantly, it puts your head in the air, with no obstruction behind your ears. So you don't have the back of a chair behind your ears modifying the acoustics.
  15. Happy Birthday Jim!

    Happy birthday!
