  1. Been a while since I've posted. My memory has faded. Thought you were retired years ago. Either way congrats. Interested in some items on your list.
  2. Allergies? That's what the GM at the restaurant told me he had. Can't eat any shellfish. Told me that he's part of a national seafood buyer group. It will be at least 4 years before the U.S. has a sufficient crab biomass to resume Alaskan crab fishing. Basically the entire biomass couldn't find cold enough water to survive, so they all went deeper, then walked off a cliff, and ultimately fell down into a deep trench where they all imploded due to extreme water pressure. Sucks to be a crab!
  3. 3 pounds of Bairdi
  4. 8th row seats to the show tonight. I've been waiting 4 years for this.
  5. Mr. Bug Goes Two Town (1941) It took 700 people 10 months to make this fully animated feature length film. Cost was $1,000,000 1941 dollars (not adjusted for inflation). This was the second and last animated feature from Paramount Pictures. I'm one of only like 100 very fortunate people in the world who have this on blu-ray. It's a straight scan off of the original film elements of a Technicolor print. Very glad to have watched it.
  6. Just received this brand new sealed still in it's original shipping box EVGA 3080ti FTW3. Going to build a HTPC using this. Intended use is for MADVR 4K dynamic tone mapping, external video processing, transcoding, and some gaming. This is for content consumed in my dedicated home theater. I have a very nice projector and screen, and I've seen first hand others who have had great success in using a similar setup. It should be a big leap for me on the video side of things, and a lot less expensive than other routes I could've taken instead. The additional complications will iron themselves out over time, and this will give me the greatest flexibility going forward.
  7. WTB: OPPO 103, 103D, 105, 105D, 203 LMN when you blow the dust off.
  8. Unlike before, It all gets reported in 2023, so you just lost your cover. Only you don't have to pay under 20K, like before.
  9. The Forte III replacement has a logo on the dustcap. That logo will end up 22.5 degrees out of level due to the mounting pattern alignment not being the same between those models. The fitment is not exactly the same either. Some material from the Klipsch Forte II cabinet will need to be removed. Also, the replacement will not fit flush like the original, due to the basket being slightly thicker. The parts department may or may not return your request for parts, a known issue. The availability of used parts on the market is currently zero, but it has been this way for many years. The passive radiator is the most commonly requested replacement part for these speakers. There has never been a direct replacement program put into place since these products went out of production decades ago. What parts were available were swept up a long time ago. If anyone wants to say any of these things are not true, please back up your comments with proof, or better yet, measurements and inventory levels.
  10. @Chief bonehead said: "Chorus iii……I’ll put it on my to do list" Have our prayers been answered? Only time will tell for sure. Either way, I think it's time for a revival. Of this thread, at the very least.
