  1. What are you listening to Part the Third

    Disclaiming the anime content, this is an absolutely sparkling power pop song. Al's fault for getting me thinking about Matthew Sweet again.

    I bet he doesn't!
  3. Outdoor GPS/Activity Trackers

    Planning to start doing more hiking and biking. Looking for a multi-activity watch (wrist computer?). A bit of Googling seems to suggest the Garmin Forerunner 935 (cheaper, lighter and anecdotally better GPS performance than the Fenix 5 series). I known some of you here like Suunto as well. Any experiences to share?
  4. Happy Birthday Ian!

    Happy birthday!

    I wish! It was just meant as a palate cleanser. [emoji6]

    Every day this thread strays further from the light of God's love.

    Feels more like Hopkins. Thou art indeed just, Lord, if I contend With thee; but, sir, so what I plead is just. Why do sinners’ ways prosper? and why must Disappointment all I endeavour end? Wert thou my enemy, O thou my friend, How wouldst thou worse, I wonder, than thou dost Defeat, thwart me? Oh, the sots and thralls of lust Do in spare hours more thrive than I that spend, Sir, life upon thy cause.

    That's already ended in disappointment.
  9. Speaker Porn

    Yeah, just noodling. Think I'll have about 6" of free air space behind the desk so could also push any speakers back there on tall stands. Probably a discussion for another thread ...

    Seriously though, those blonde wood OMA Monitors would match my new desk eerily perfectly. They say "mid-field" and boundary reinforcement would likely be an issue with the big woofers, but maybe on risers and about 6-1/2 feet back from my earholes might work?

    When did we change the subject to my sex life?
  12. What are you EATING right now?

    Very lawyerly! How much do I owe you, Al?
  13. Watches

    This is actually a profound strategy for finding contentment in many areas! Sorry about the watch though.
  14. What are you EATING right now?

    This is the correct interpretation. I ate fresh donuts yesterday, but I felt terrible about it, so that's OK.
  15. What are you EATING right now?

    Applaud meat, ignore not meat, deplore dessert.
