  1. My thoughts and prayers are with you, the boys and all who knew and loved him.

     

    I’m so glad I got to spend some time talking to him a few weeks ago. He was an incredible human being. He will be missed.

    I feel this way very often, especially when called upon to handle matters like this for our Klipsch friends. So many people we’ve met and grown very fond of...seeing them once or twice a year.

    I’m honored to call each of you my friend.

    Losses like this are difficult at best.

  4. Interesting story from his sister:

    Sitting in Kirby’s pandemic office and remembering all that he was. Just want to give a little insight. When the pandemic hit he moved from a highrise in downtown Dallas to his garage. His obsession with Klipsch speakers started in high school , and upon graduation from college they wanted to hire him. Kirby didn’t want to move to Hope, but that didn’t stop his love. When he wanted to begin teaching his boys about money he did it through the buying and selling of speakers. He has been all over the country and sent everyone he knows scouting for speakers. Stephanie finally put her foot down and moved him to the garage, with only a few left in the house. He was always trying to gift everyone with a set of Klipsch speakers. So the man cave began as he continued to teach his boys about music and finances. During this last year he conducted business all over the US from this space always making time to jam for awhile in between. I thought it was perfect for Stephanie to suggest donations to the Klipsch Museum. This garage tells a lot about many things that brought him joy.

  5. It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of long time Klipsch fan and forum member Kirby Smith. Many of you had the opportunity to meet him personally at past Pilgrimage events.

     

    Kirby passed away Friday 3/5/21 after a skiing accident at Big Sky in Montana. Kirby was 60 years old. Kirby died from blunt force trauma suffered during the accident. He was wearing a helmet.

     

    His family has requested that in lieu of flowers donations be made to the Klipsch Museum of Audio History. We are honored that his family has chosen our organization to receive these proceeds. These donations will be directed to our building fund per discussions with his family.

     

    I will attempt to post details on his memorial service later today.

  6. I’ve remained quiet in a lot of this. I have a few things to say. After 42 years of being married to DTEL I can say with complete confidence that if he gets angry about something it’s usually justified.

    As far as posts being arbitrary, all of us have other careers, jobs, businesses and personal responsibilities. There is absolutely no way we can moderate every single post. Trust me, I tried.

    This forum is not a democracy. It is wholly and owned and controlled by Klipsch. The moderators here serve at their pleasure, with no compensation whatsoever. If you are unhappy with the way one or more of us moderate please feel free to contact Chad with your complaints or suggestions. He’s our boss.

    Better yet, if you feel you can assist with moderating please feel free to PM one of us. We will be happy to discuss the duties and responsibilities that come along with the “title”

    For those of you that don’t realize it, we hide a lot of threads, even more comments to try to keep a topic on course. It becomes increasingly difficult when one or more of us can be here in a daily basis. It’s like herding cats. We turn our backs and well, y’all become feral. It’s really ridiculous.

    Each of us have our shortcomings when it comes to moderation. For example, I don’t catch some of the sly innuendos that some of you use regarding politics and insults. I just don’t operate on that level. Therefore I dibt always catch those types of posts. That’s why generally we moderate as a group. No one is ever put on moderated posts or banned without a thorough vetting between moderators.

    Bottom line is that you are grown *ss men doing grown *ss things, try acting like it. Follow the few simple rules.

  7. Interrupting your regularly scheduled program. There is an active shooter reported at the Naval Air Station in Corpus Christi TX. Our very own [mention]USNRET [/mention] is employed at that facility. Prayers for all.

  8. and the people said "Amen!"
     
    Seriously, my big stubby fingers have a hard time typing on the small keyboard of a large for my pocket phone. The voice dictating function works ok but after I press send it looks like a dummy wrote it without any punctuation at all. I still insist that phones are for talking.
     
    customer service representative or human being please doesn't work as well with phone defense systems as it did twenty years ago. Entities still try to route you to go away!
     
    Sign of the times Mr Man.

    The key to using the voice dictation function is to insert the words comma, question mark, period etc where you would normally use them in written language.

    For example: How are you today question mark.
    Will translate to: How are you today?

    Hope that helps!!!

  9. Had 3 years to build them back up.
     
    (I know that's not your quote, Sput.)

    Even if the stockpile was replenished the responsibility lies with the states.

  10. I guess you must have missed the part in the terms of service about whining, bitching and moaning…

    Maybe some of you should refresh yourselves with the “friendly reminder” posted by Chad at the top of the lounge section. You should be grateful the mods are trying to go the extra mile on this thread. cc1cfd327a05e203b3cb33edce48a07e.jpg

  11. Bitter has absolutely nothing to do with it.  It's called reality.  Something that many here refuse to acknowledge.
     
     

    The reality is that what is done darkness always comes to light. That’s beginning to happen, but sadly a very minuscule number of folks here will never admit their beliefs were with the dark side. It’s a pity really. The bitterness, disrespect and anger will continue no matter what darkness is exposed because some will refuse to see the truth no matter what.

  12. Exactly right... to Mar-a-Lago

    Of course it does silly boy. How sad for you to be so bitter.

    When you donate your paycheck you have to make up for it some way.

  13. I don't believe that is happening. Is that happening? And if so, what would be the point?
     
    People who are symptomatic and admitted are tested. If they test positive, they should be coded for COVID-19. I don't think anyone could get away with falsifying that kind of data, at least not for long. That's the problem with conspiracy theories -- it requires that people keep their mouths shut -- and they rarely can.

    FOLLOW THE MONEY!!!!!

  14. I suppose, but only if your stated premise is true.  Why do medical professionals wear masks around sick patients?

    This is why they wear N95 masks along with other PPE.

    But unless they already have it, they are increasing their own odds of contracting it and creating a larger  source of infection Jeff, soo that is a bad thing right ??
     
    Roger

    In my particular case it’s a very bad thing since I’m in one of the vulnerable groups. It’s very frustrating that when I positively must go out that I’m expected to wear a mask that increases my odds of becoming infected.

  16. If all those other people are protecting me by wearing masks, that's a good thing, right?

    It’s a good thing for you.
