  1. I replied by email. I’ll keep the forum apprised.
  2. Recalling Spencer Davis reminds me of Steve Winwood, a one time bandmate to SD. My millennial nephew, Matt, was headed to a concert. My brother asked his son who he was going to see. Matt said Eric Clapton and that “some guy named Steve Winwood was the opening act.” My brother informed Matt that Steve Winwood is not “some guy” and he doesn’t “open” for anybody. He explained that Clapton and Winwood are peers, despite the disparity in fame and commercial success. When he returned from the concert, he understood my brother’s comments and agreed that Winwood was more than “some guy.”
  3. I love Dynaco, at least I did before Tyco ruined it. GLWS.

    Jokes?

    To discourage tailgating, the car in my avatar had a spring loaded rocker switch on the transmission tunnel that could activate the brake lights, including a CHMSL in the roll bar, without applying the brakes. I think Flammable’s approach is more effective.

    That is a flamethrower. Note the spark plug used to ignite unburned fuel. That would be quite spectacular at night. If you’re a passenger in Flammable, you are in flammable, does that make you inflammable?
  6. Congratulations Chuck on 15 years. Inquiring minds want to know what you plan to do with all those letters “D” you’ve stockpiled by skipping them when they are supposed to be included. I’m certain you used to know what to do with them.
  7. A t-nut is clearly visible in the attached photo posted earlier by OP. Also clearly illustrated is the fact that the motor board has more plies than basic plywood (used in H2 motorboard below) although it is difficult to count the plies to see if it is consistent with the 13+ plies I have observed in my BB.
  8. Thai goes to the runner . . . or so they say.

    He might be one of those blind persons who uses echo location.
  10. I believe Jim @jimjimbo deserves some of the credit for recommending, and selling, the h/k 630. Happy to encourage you to relieve Jim of one of his excellent h/k x30s. Glad you are enjoying the combination.
  11. What are those Dave? How close are you to Hinkley? They didn’t all get the social distancing memo about using every other post.
  12. Thank you for posting this. It does bring back memories. Where did you locate it? Are there more like this available? There were several duplicate pages which threw off the numbering. An ad from Klipsch & Associates is on page 190 of the magazine, which due to the redundant pages is at page 197 of 215 of the link. What is an inflation adjustment from 1957 to 2020? Even without a specific multiplier, those 1957 prices seem high. For example, $525 for a Sony Superscope R2R was a lot of money in 1957.
  13. Mine was returned today. I corrected the address and put on a fresh stamp. it’ll go into the mail on Monday.
  14. Voting? Yes. Judicial rulings? No.
  15. Best wishes to you Moray James.
  16. Mostly, I feel it is a difference of opinion, rather than “bad law.” In my experience, for the most part, the judges I have been before were conscientious, hard working and principled, which is not to say that I always agreed with them Judges are not infallible. Differences of opinion are not uncommon. The several layers of appeal are testament to the ability of different judges to reach different results. The fact that the U. S. Supreme Court doe not always reach a unanimous decision demonstrates that even at the highest level there can be honest disagreements.
  17. I clerked for two Circuit Court judges. One would review the law, including my research and memoranda, and the he would make a decision. He stated, if I’m wrong, the Court of Appeals will tell me so. The other judge would also review the law and my research memoranda, before agonizing over his decision. He was paralyzed by the fear of being wrong. He was unable to make a decision, which is a fatal flaw in a judge. Failing to decide is always wrong. Deciding based on the facts and the law provides a chance to be correct. As the better judge said, the Court of Appeals will let you know if it disagrees.

    A uterus is a homing device.
  19. Do you have any of those Ford Navistar diesels that are the subject of a class action suit and individual lawsuits?
  20. Here is an example of the way @moray james described above. You avoid raising the speaker 10”. As Bruce described, the ports are 4” diameter by 7” long.
  21. I use mine to power “Supered” HIPs. A TPA3118 “Wiener” class D amp powers my DIY Fostex 103 bass reflex single drivers. While both sound very good, the TPA3255EVM sounds better than the 3118 on the same speakers. Some of the difference could be attributable to the higher power of the 3255.
  22. At 6:20 AM EDT, looking south in Southeastern Michigan, Mars is bright in the western sky. Venus is bright in the eastern sky.
  23. It was common in the old days for future, or current, TV stars to turn up on shows like Perry Mason, Twilight Zone, etc. The list of stars in T-Zone episodes is immense.
