    You sure we didn't bump somewhere back in the day?

    Hmm yeah I think your right, I was the one with the aluminum Baseball bat, my friends had the chains or black gas pipes, it had to be in a very dark alley for sure. We were just playing baseball, might be that you were the Ball?

  7. A Bit of a migraine here so the prescription is to not look away from the dot, ..The dot? umm which one? the red or the blue

    do prescription 4 times a day until migraine subsides....

    there is no guarantee this will help and may have side effects, is best taken with several adult beverages on an empty stomach...

  9. I should post here once in a while, or at least until ya'll kick me out :)

    Cables...Coffee....Cycles (?Lunar?) and Cocktails (Neat bird) wow what a line up that is.

    I thunk it over today and since I was working on something related to the title here, figured I would share... poor souls

    Working on things here (the system) and notice someone in this place was humming and just wouldn't shut up! I mean I like music n all but I do get tired of the monastic single note single tone hummmmmmmm, at least put some rhythm to it!

    Yep, I was hearing that dreadful noise of some "CABLE" or loose connection hum in the system. Dreadful thing since I have been doing a LOT of rewiring and arranging of things. Couple days ago had an amp go Pop, well more like "BOOOMMM" of course right as I was turning a switch knob, causing all kinds of fear of "What did I just do??" Just a timing thing though as the amp power filter decided to short out at that very moment. Or.. the extra hum, a symptom? or coincidence? The hum was the worst of course on the phono setting so unplug the phono box should indicate if that is the root. Still some hum, but nowhere near as bad. Decided it was time to replace my lost shorting plugs and get into it. Shorted the inputs and absolute silence, so the amp repair was fine. Back to the issue then, and started going backwards along the lines feeding the amp, one section at a time with the shorting plugs. This was a good thing to do as it sounds out the cables for any degradation from use over the years. With each step replacing cables one at a time and one switch box, the hum was beginning to become bearable maybe, until I checked and tightened the grounding wing nuts at the turntables, and blown off my feet from the very loud (Full volume) radio station, at least it was playing ZZ Tops but a boot load of hum in it as well. I tell ya when I find this guy that's humming, gonna hang'im upside down by his GO &%^$ ....

    Removed the ground from the wing nut to find almost silence, yeah a bit of hum but at full volume it being almost inaudible, I am happy with that, as it almost definitely and pretty sure is a hum of induction of lengthy cables... until I went to get a "Coffee" Remember the title?, and as I poured the coffee, the BLAST of at least 120 decibel hum, coffee everywhere now, running (2 canes) to the volume control I forgot to turn down. The Heresies faired ok fine through it (Whew) and the tremors ceased a few hours later. Waited for the cops to show up but I guess they were not interested.

    Tomorrow is another day, and I will tackle this fella insisting on humming monotone at me, and I shall ship the remains to @Abomb to feed his awfully cute pet he acquired while on vacation. Yes that's right... fresh meat!

    I know I've got that number she wrote down somewhere.

    @Dave1291 Wait my friend, no no no, STOP trust me we can save you here. Ya got friends, we do not cost as much as that neck anchor. You can spin anything you want without the hassle of being told to play something different!! Or "TURN IT DOWN!!!" And lest we forget... the approval thing, being told no that it is TOO expensive.... and add to that the guilt about not getting those new shoes the week before (Really expensive ones) that she said she needed!!

    ... Stick with us and enjoy your tunes!!

  11. Hey George: @MicroMara

    I am sorry that the rehab was not enough, and that surgery is required. As Dave made reference of it is pretty much SOP, and yep they have a lot of MINIMAL ways to get things done. Doing each part separately makes the best sense.

    You have us crazy Grey haired old men here and some Red Heads I hear that are Rooting and cheering for you. You have friends and we will just have to plan a few spin parties with you while you do the recovery part.

    And ABomb is right, the Nurses are that best source of information.

    Get well soon

    cause I'm salivating! 

    Salivation: Is a symptom of a need that will have to be fed and if ignored will cause other negative symptoms such as vinyl throwing, needle ripping and sticking ones fingers into the A/C receptacles.  I suggest @Dave1291 to get the system fired up and rather quickly.. it IS detrimental to your health otherwise.
