  1. I helped you out here @Kettle Moraine Klipsch and took your post out of an older dead thread and put it here where people will see it. Welcome to the Forum, you will find plenty of Klipsch Fans, audio enthusiasts and generally really good people. You could start by talking about what speakers/system you have and then you will become hooked. Travis
  2. Never works on the former, how do you keep out the latter? Two major vaccines were donated to humanity, but have you every been to the Salk Institute in La Jolla? What he didn't get in profits he surely got in donations.
  3. No. 2, 1.1, 1.5, 2, 3 . . . . Riots have never worked. We had the Maryland Riots thread several years ago, that actually went pretty well for several days. @wvu80 was keeping an eye on those at the time, but they disintegrate. That particular one turned particularly ugly and prompted Chad to post the reminder at the top of the Lounge Section.
  4. He has the AA Crossovers based on the photos in the pdf he attached. Any thoughts?
  5. That could be, I just don't recall seeing any.
  6. So we have the first French study back in March that was rejected (not retracted) that said it was effective (and spurred the media frenzy), then a second French study that said, we tried to repeat first French study and cannot duplicate the results, we find it ineffective. Now we have that Worldwide study that says it is ineffective and they are withdrawing that study? Did I understand that right? That study says ineffective? The Remdesivir studies show that it is effective (in terms of reduced time in hospital vs. placebo), and I am not aware of any of the controlled trials being questioned or withdrawn. Travis
  7. We had a minor spike here in Austin/Travis County, but not near what there has been in San Antonio, Dallas and Houston (Assuming the state figures are accurate).
  8. On the crossover update/refresh if you are a DIY type of guy there are many who can help you on here as what to do. If you are not, and want to keep your Khorns original here is the Klipsch authorized dealer who update them for you. For crossovers that we may no longer have available, you may be able to get them repaired through one of our authorized Heritage Dealers: JEM PERFORMANCE AUDIO (412) 401-6915 https://jemperformanceaudio.com/ 499 Limestone Dr Bethel Park, PA 15102 United States
  9. Welcome to the forums Russell! I'm in Austin also, hope you and yours are safe and doing well. You will get a lot of great responses here. Have you updated your crossovers at all? That's seems to be the big hit for a refreshment. Travis

    Responding to Billy Bob's "confused" reaction: Where on earth can the conversation go (and if fact did, from there)? Cannot speak for the other moderators, but when I see posters begin in the first 4 posts that a thread is sure to go off the tracks, it typically does. I hid several subsequent responses.

    Oh, I would say it was right at about this post here.
  12. That's the rub. China reported some anecdotal success with it early on. That was picked up on in other countries as it spread. There was the pre-publication "study" from France which drew a lot of attention, and also criticism from scientific/medical community which became a political football. That study has since been withdrawn. There was a second limited study in France that said it had "no effect." Another football. In US the position was it looks promising but we need to wait for the gold standard of studies, controlled study, random, with placebo. However, my doctor said that the people in the trenches were reporting some apparent success when their were no other options. His take on it was that the institutional types in ivory towers tend to be "we need to wait for proper study" whereas in the clinical setting when someone continues to decline you are willing to try some things you wouldn't ordinarily do. He is the one who said the best thing I could do was take Vitamin D and zinc (he had Dr. Fauci as his ID professor in medical school). Since then the Remdesivir gold standard US study has come out which shows it is effective. Then you get bogged down in what "success" is in these studies. Reduction in length of hospital stays (Remdesivir), deaths among study participants who are grouped (Remdesivir was deemed to not statistically significant, more analysis was necessary). My take on it is while the studies are carried out to see what is actually safe, effective, etc., if you are a hospital physician you do what you need to do. The other take is that people tend to put way too much stock in media reports of certain things, and really need to go to the source documents. For a time, it seemed to me, people were "in favor" or a medication, or not in favor of something, as an indicator of their support, or non support, of an elected official, medical/drug bureaucrat. If we allow ourselves to get drug into the media spin when making medical decisions, that really is a bad place to be. "I want drug X because _______________ said ____________." doesn't really bode well. Fortunately, as least to my knowledge, none of us have been the position of having to make serious decisions, but if we were, I would hope that the focus would be "I discussed this with my doctor/family member's doctor, he discussed the options, what her experience has been, etc., etc. and based on her advice we decided to do X." I hope I am never in the position of having to make the choice, but based on what I know now, if given the choice of HCQ or Remdesivir I would chose the latter unless my doctor suggested otherwise, in which case I wouldn't hesitate to follow their advice.

  13. I tried to hide all of that, but some of it may still exist, for the reasons you state below: We appreciate that. Being publicly tranded creates a quagmire/minefield as it is. General economy, trends, indexes, are ok, specific stocks or vehicles really can them in a bind. @Jeffrey D. Medwin I seem to recall you worked in Chicago area (BOT?), Art is from that area. Travis
  14. The American College of Cardiology (ACC )has detailed information for its members, and available to the public, including their evidence based protocols and algorithms which I have posted since March. Since you have the background to understand it at a deeper level than most of us I would be interested in seeing what your thoughts were. Travis
  15. Well I suppose it's a virus that causes that so it's marginally on-topic..:)
  16. A virus is non-living. It needs a particularized host to grow.
  17. Yes they closed down a little guy for selling his outside area. Very sad. They started selling a limited runs of Imperal cane sugar Dr Pepper after that.
  18. Welcome to the Forum, someone in here should be able to help with this.
  19. There is no period in Dr Pepper
  20. Oh no, more shortages. I think Texas has it's own Frito Lay plant (lot of Chilli Frito pie to supply) and Budwiser, and Miller, Ford Truck Plant, own beef supply, produce supply, we may import our poultry I dont know. If you run low on Fritos we can mail you some. Oh, and Dr Pepper, we can send you plenty of that too.
  21. Assuming that were true, whose fault is that? More fundamentally, do we want the scientists and doctors to be part of a narrative? Media is driven by sales because it is a business now. It's ratings driven. They all select drama and controversy, in the eyes of their viewer base, in deciding how and what they air or publish. I didn't see Birx shying away from this was a serious outbreak that needed a shutdown. I think what she said on Friday it's every county/state for themselves and we will help them. Her death figures CDC is reporting haven't changed one iota since March, she explained how they use baselines to check their data, how it hit exponential growth, and how they measure if certain restrictions are working. She also said there were a few areas that they could not figure out yet, no decline despite following guidelines. She had no explanation for Maryland and Virginia. I say let er rip, done what we can do.
