  1. To me they seem a little rough cosmetically for that price. I'm sure they sound great.

    F22 Raptor

    Very cool.

    F22 Raptor

    The YF-22 was developed by Lockheed/Boeing/General Dynamics (GD) for the Airforce's ATF (Advanced Tactical Fighter) competition. I was a young engineer at GD in the mid to late 80's and I worked on the ATF program while supporting F-16 production at GD's Fort Worth plant (Air Force Plant #4). I had already left GD by the time the YF-22 was selected as the winner against the Northrup/McDonnell Douglas YF-23 in the early 90's. Eventually, Lockheed bought the Fort Worth aircraft production business from GD. As great as the F-16 was, the design and manufacturing processes for the YF-22 were a generation more advanced, with much more composite material in the airframe.

    Jokes?

    A can of r-134a to recharge the A/C system?
  5. Congratulations! https://www.cnet.com/news/the-klipsch-reference-premiere-600m-is-the-audiophiliac-speaker-of-the-year/
  6. I had Hair on cassette tape when I was 10 years old (1970). Had my parents listened to it, I would not have had it for very long. I also saw Mars through my little 3" reflector telescope that year. I was much more impressed by Saturn.

    What I Got Today!

    Nice. Looks perfect for outdoor seating for a SWAG-West 😉
  8. OK thanks. What did that set you back ($) if you don't mind me asking?
  9. What all was done on your H/K 430s to restore them? I have two H/K 430s. One, I use on a regular basis with my Khorns for causal listening or tuning in to FM radio. I don't think it sounds quite as good as it did when I got it 15 years ago, and it was not restored then.
  10. In 1980, as a part of an engineering student conference, I toured the Shiva fusion reactor facility at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. I think they were at about 1% of net energy gain then. I would have thought then, that 40 years later we would have achieved sustained net energy gain, and maybe even commercial fusion power generation.
  11. Mars is very bright tonight, brighter than Jupiter. The current magnitude of Mars is -2.62 (JPL). The current magnitude of Jupiter is -2.28 (JPL).
  12. Not THAT adventurous!
  13. I don't have a pool heater. I figure, when the weather is right to swim, it's time to swim. When it's not, it's not. It's also one less thing I need to maintain LOL.
  14. The water was quite refreshing.
