    The Knuckledragger 3rd Memorial Slow Forum Post

    Police say they have nothing to go on. [emoji6]
  2. There doesn't seem to be one specifically for general chitchat that I could see? Doubtless will be heavily shoveled-upon if in error in this matter. Anyway, nice update of the 13" Macbook -- now Pro -- today I thought. $100 price cut and FireWire makes a comeback, adds LED backlit display, support for 8GB of RAM, and the new uber-permabattery (OK, not unmixed blessing). Also thought $30 for Snow Leopard upgrade was pretty fair. Leaner, faster and (allegedly) fixed fucking finder would be well worth that to me.

    HDTV Suggestions

    Now available, but fortunately not wall-mountable. https://www.lg.com/us/tvs/lg-OLED88Z9PUA-signature-oled-8k-tv I'd be so in at $10K for an 8K, 88" VESA mount panel.

    I'll be interested to see how open market values stack up against the Apple trade-in pricing, which is $600 for an XS Max.

    iPhone 11 Pro Max is a bit of a mouthful but OK, I'm in. I mean, 4-5 hours more battery life -- what? https://www.apple.com/iphone-11-pro/ Upgrade from a comparable (256GB) Xs Max is $649 after trade-in if anyone else might be interested. There's an option to finance at 0% APR for 2 years, which comes to $27.04 a month. Guessing a lot of folks out there will jump on the latter?

    Speaker Porn

    I admit it -- though primarily a headphone guy I enjoy drooling over pictures of beautiful speakers. For the artistry, for the engineering, for the lulz. I would enjoy seeing particularly striking examples you may happen to come across. These really struck me today. New Vienna Acoustics Klimt series. Concentric midrange/tweeter units adjustable for tilt and toe-in. Murata supertweeters. Eton spider-cone woofers. 22Hz - 100kHz. The black one makes me think of Barad-d

    What are you listening to Part the Third

    OK, fired up the BHSE for the first time in months and listened to this new Tool album quite loud and my conclusion was I should get back into this headphone shit.

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Well done Nate!

    Head Case Motorsports

    I’m sorry I must have misheard that gentleman. Didn’t say “starting at $150K” did he? I guess it's a good thing Porsche options are so reliably reasonably priced ... Edit: Specced one out in Dolomite Silver with all the toys and it's pretty sweet but actually North of $185K. Oof.

    What are you listening to Part the Third

    Unless all you have is Kansas and Diana Krall -- and who am I to judge -- that's not particularly random.
  13. I would totally watch a bunch of these movies. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2G9qar-yKw

    Speaking of prog (bit metal). Enjoying the latest King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard -- Infest The Rat's Nest.
