  1. I am fortunate. Military TriCare covered my family for ~ $500 / year I turned 65 I now have Medicare primary and TriCare for life for me. The family is still covered under TriCare Prime at the same cost of ~$500 / year My Medicare premium has a $57.80 surcharge due to my income. I was paying ~$42.00 for the family. After my 65th birthday I now pay $244.40 per month for the same coverage. So my birthday cost me $200 a month.
  2. My understanding of the RCA input "dummy plugs" were used to prevent EMI / RFI introduction into the open ports most commonly any open phono inputs. Analogous to the 75 ohm termination caps used on open cable TV splitter ports. http://www.cardas.com/protective_caps.php


    It snowed last night... 8:00 am: I made a snowman. 8:10 - A feminist passed by and asked me why I didn't make a snow woman. 8:15 - So, I made a snow woman. 8:17 - My feminist neighbor complained about the snow woman's voluptuous chest saying it objectified snow women everywhere. 8:20 - The gay couple living nearby threw a hissy fit and moaned it could have been two snow men instead. 8:22 - The transgender man..women...person asked why I didn't just make one snow person with detachable parts. 8:25 - The vegans at the end of the lane complained about the carrot nose, as veggies are food and not to decorate snow figures with. 8:28 - I was being called a racist because the snow couple is white. 8:31 - The middle eastern gent across the road demanded the snow woman be covered up . 8:40 - The Police arrived saying someone had been offended. 8:42 - The feminist neighbor complained again that the broomstick of the snow woman needed to be removed because it depicted women in a domestic role. 8:43 - The council equality officer arrived and threatened me with eviction. 8:45 - TV news crew from CBC showed up. I was asked if I know the difference between snowmen and snow-women? I replied "Snowballs" and am now called a sexist. 9:00 - I was on the News as a suspected terrorist, racist, homophobe sensibility offender, bent on stirring up trouble during difficult weather. 9:10 - I was asked if I have any accomplices. My children were taken by social services. 9:29 - Far left protesters offended by everything marched down the street demanding for me to be arrested. By noon it all melted Moral: There is no moral to this story. It is what we have become, all because of snowflakes.
  4. Please I need the $$! I found an all night box repair shop and paid $100 to get it fixed. They swear that you'll never notice but I wanted to be honest.
  5. Oh no, I lied the box is damaged. I'll put it on the bus tomorrow from work
  6. I bought this thing from a forum member quite some time ago and it has been taking up space in my office floor because it has excellent cosmetics so I didn't want it to go to attic or garage. I am considering my Sansui integrated and tuner since they have not been used as game room audio since my son became an AGGIE but those would not be free.
  7. You have a PM with my UPS account shipping info
  8. Michael, I have an Outlaw 990 (non-HDMI) prepro in the factory box you can have. I bought it thinking I would get another multi-channel amp for the game room; never did. It's yours if you want. I did hook it up and it works fine. Manuals, remote, etc.
  9. Am I missing something here? Klipsch H had risers not stands. Raised this high off the floor would greatly reduce what bass Heresy speakers have. Unless used for surrounds the stands would have zero additional value.
  10. Are the tags still in place? If so the finish code will be on them.
  11. The 69 Z/28 RS package had the hideaway headlights. Cowl induction and rear spoiler were options, headers and traction bars came uninstalled in the trunk. Available, but rare, was the cross ram 2 x 4bbl intake.
  12. It is simply amazing how much HP (and RPM) can be extracted with modern technology. Pencil drilling dual 465 CFM Holley carb throttle plates to get the idle RPM below the transition circuit was an exercise that I did not enjoy since the car was my only daily driver to work.
