    OK guys maybe see you in a month.
  2. KLF-30 instead of CF-4. Win or lose?

    You probably have had the CF-4 for long enough that they are boring. No matter how good it is, the same thing gets boring over time. I could take them off your hands.

    Buddy II have only known you for a week or so, but I ca assure you that you blew past eccentric decades ago. I know weirdos because I am one, and I'm not entirely sure that you have not passed that too. How about crackpot or fruitcake?
  4. Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    I agree but not because of the weather. OK that was mean. But yeah you get about 50 and we get about 40. But you get hurricanes and that really is cheating. Should not count. I had no idea you got that much. And the humidity, plus it is in Texas, and plus it is Houston. Why does anyone live there?
  5. Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    Get one of their subwoofers. That will cure you.
  6. CF-4 Incoming!

    Np @Lateral_Line you are not too later. A few others here kidnapped me and held an intervention, as in "what part of scam do you not understand." Then again, even if was never delivered, I at least would have an imaginary CF-4. On the good side, my new Arizona friend has decided to sell me his pair of CF-4 version 1 speakers after all. And he is for real.

    We would love a handful of nice days. In 2016-2017, over a span of 178 days, Seattle had 123 with rain or snow, 149 with more than 70 percent cloud cover, and just nine -- that's nine, as in two more than a week -- with less than 30 percent cloud cover. Of course on average we have 308 cloudy days per year. Of course, that is offset by the rain. From October 2017 through April 2017, we got 44.67 inches of rain, not that anyone noticed. But really, out summers are gorgeous.

    I don't want attention. I do want information and help. My singular goal is to learn. I want to learn how speaker work on a physical level, I want to learn how to build a good subwoofer, I want to learn if I can accomplish something by doing things differently, I want to learn if Chinese companies make decent audio equipment, I want to learn about box and tube enclosures for subwoofers, but I also want to learn and infinite baffle and open baffle subwoofers, I want to learn if a much larger subwoofer would do the bass what larger woofers did for my audio in general. I don't want attention in the sense that I so not care what anyone else thinks about me. That was something that my father ingrained in my when I was in junior high (middle school). One day, he said to me, "Son, you are a weirdo. You always have been a weirdo and you always will be a weirdo. The question is whether you are going to be a happy weirdo or a miserable one. And that depends on one thing, whether you care what other people think about you. Because if you care, you are giving them power, and since you are weirdo, they are going to use that power against you." It tool me a while, but I do not recall caring what anyone thought about me unless I decided to. I care what my wife thinks about everything, including me, and I care what my kids think, although they would deny it. I care what a very few of my friends think, and beyond that, I just don't give a ****. That does not mean that I don't care about people because I do. It just means that I define myself and I am not going to let anyone else do it. So I don't think that you are rude, and I am not offended. I think about what people say, and I adjust my behavior if I think that I should. I am sorry that my posts have affected you that way, and while part of me wants to say then don't read it, another part says that maybe you have a point and I should adjust things. By the way. looking at the list of posts that I started, I see this for February 2/28 Optoma Projectors 2/17 Dilemma about subwoofers 2/10 Followup on subwoofers 2/8 Crazy idea for subwoofers 2/8 Would this work (subwoofers) 2/4 Garage Sale 2/3 Integra question I don't know if that is too many or not. Now, if you look at January, I was a complete mess. And people told me privately and publicly that I was overdoing it. When looked back at it, I had to agree. I probably could have put all the subwoofer stuff in a single post. I thought I had reasons for new posts, but I don't even remember what they were, so I think I will try to avoid that. I probably do post more than most here but that is because I am at my computer around 16 hours a day, and when something comes in I read it. Bottom line is that I will consider your post and took it as a comment meant to help me.

    In Seattle we have wet and dry. From November to May we probably see the sun 30 days in a typical year. From June through October, we have amazing weather and during summer the sun sun does not set until after 10. Little known fact: during the baseball season, Seattle gets less rain than any Major League baseball city outside of California and Arizona. It is than nice here. Of course, when it gets dark at 4:30 in December, I never remember how good the summer was.

    I do not see a question mark in there. But you are right. Here especially I ask questions without knowing the answer, and I break the rule at trial all the time. Besides, we may think we know the answer but quite often we don't. Wouldn't you agree?

    Yes they can. In ping pong.

    Houston we have a problem. WVU80 rambled on about 9 different basketball teams and not once did he mention the mightiest, most storied team that brings tenacity and overwhlming force to the court, and yes I mean Kansas. He plainly has lost his mind, or been putting something in all that coffee. Kansas for the win.

    Excellent point, and if I attended by proxy with a case of whiskey, I assume I would be one of the spirits and therefore present.
  14. Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    I rarely ask a question if I do not know the answer. First rule for lawyers.

    Or one that is down. It is knocking on the door when no one is home. AS few things you can try. First if you know the IP address, try to browse to the site with it instead of the name. That will bypass name servers and some other potential problems. Second you can ping the site to see if it responds. It is better to ping the IP address instead of the name, but use what you have. Only do it once or twice (the name and the IP address for example). If you and bunch of other people kept pinging the site, it could effectively by a DDos (Distributed Denial of Service). If they were trying to fix things, that would be singularly unhelpful.
