    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

    Hell of a driver. Hell of a personality. RIP Niki.

    I left my first ever nice watch -- a Rolex Datejust -- in an open locker at the Washington DC YMCA overnight before I realized I'd lost it. I fucking sprinted back down there from my apartment the next morning and it was a GOOD feeling opening that little door and finding it still inside!

    The commonality here is inadequate TVs.

    What are you Grilling now?

    OK I'm notoriously not that price sensitive but, yeah, that's nuts.

    Proper HC haul, that! How much were they willing to deal on the Hestan grill? I'm ... just curious.

    The only way that would ever have been in doubt is if there was a mattress company called Matte Black?

    This is what we have and it's the best I've ever slept on. Think it's one of the sprung models. They have a store on the Peninsula if you want to try out. https://www.thenaturalmattressstore.com

    My old investment banking boss told me that a monogrammed cuff in finance is like a teardrop tattoo in prison. You know the dude's a stone cold killer. 😉

  16. 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.
