  1. https://www.pcmag.com/news/350-usb-stick-that-claims-to-block-5g-is-actually-a-6-generic-thumb-drive "The 5GBioShield makes it possible, thanks to a uniquely applied process of quantum nano-layer technology, to balance the imbalanced electric oscillations arising from all electric fog induced by all devices such as: laptops, cordless phones, wlan, tablets, etc....brings balance into the field at the atomic and cellular level restoring balanced effects to all harmful (ionized and non-ionized) radiation." So I guess if I wore whilst CAT scanned, the film would be blank? With a few substitutions here and there, this could be ad copy for capacitors, speaker cables, power cords, magic beans, you name it.
  2. I get the Nat Geo, I will look for this, thanks.
  3. Win 10 is garbage, one of those bad releases of Windows MS just can't fix fast enough. It's mantra is "Not Responding"
  4. Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of Mt St Helens erupting with a violence not experienced in the United States in modern times. One estimate was a force of 24 megatons, which is larger than any weapon the US ever tested in the atmosphere. Although I was not a witness, I do remember the incredible sunsets of the rest of the year as the ash cloud circled the globe.I recall sitting in McElroys restaurant in Biloxi, looking out over the Mississippi Sound, and the ever-changing layers of color as the sun went down. Let us also remember all who lost their lives in the eruption. I think especially of David Johnson, the volcanologist yelling "Vancouver! Vancouver! This is it!" into his ham radio, and Harry Truman, the irascible keeper of the Spirit Lake Lodge. Yesterday I played Alan Hovhaness's Symphony No. 50, "Mount Saint Helens". This is my favorite work by Hovhaness. I don't listen to the final movement very often, but when I do it is a stirring experience on a powerful system (Klipsch, of course). Gerard Schwarz and the Seattle symphony have recorded this and I hope to hear it in person someday.
  5. New Orleans, from the 15th floor of an office building in the central business district, the Crescent City Connection (CCC) bridges in the distance.
  6. Atlanta, one chilly winter night in 2007
  7. My departed friend Joel, whose camera I was borrowing when I took this picture, referred to this as a "Jesus sky". The lines in it appeared after several years. I guess the original file is partly corrupted. Shot with a Nikon digital camera sometime in the early 2000s
  8. (Not reply to Chris's post about Art Dudley and Jeff Bagby; my condolences to their families and friends.) Since this thread keeps going on and on, I finally decided to speak up and post my question about that review. The review uncovered some significant resonances in the front panel, which should be the place most prone to resonance, since it is the outer wall of the highest-pressure section of the bass horn. What I haven't seen (maybe I missed it) is any comment from Roy. One would think that of all panels this would be the most heavily braced. If memory serves, the central brace was not added to the back of the front panel until the 70s; if I'm off a decade I won't be embarrassed. Maybe, like a lot of things that show up in measurements, it is deemed to have no audible significance?
