The woodchuck saw his shadow ... if that means 6 more weeks of this weather, I'm all for it.  Been 70 - 80 almost all "winter'.

 

  I've been complaining to the wife, for some time,  about the invasive/intrusive nature of technology today....

...she will prolly think I've gone off my rocker when she starts seeing tube amps instead of SS.

 

Your weather sounds wonderful right now to me. Wednesday is was 52, this morning we had a -12 windchill :o

I hope winter is only 6 more weeks. Of course, Phil is only 39% correct.

so, on a completely different topic, something you may find interesting at my place of work.  that I heard happened recently.  I do tier 2 IT support for a large company.  I'm working on the phone with a guy I know, working on this one problem.  I get an email from central help desk that there is a widespread issue company wide, locking out accounts company wide.  teams are engaged, working the issue.  additional resources are being added to the help(less) desk to help with the call volume.

 

so, with some back & forth with other folks, I finally get my guy fixed.  while I'm finishing up with him, I get a follow up to the earlier issue:

SUMMARY: Approximately 500 user accounts were unintentionally disabled last night.... Root cause has been identified and addressed....

 

think anyone in the outer reaches like me will ever hear "the real story"?  I wish.  can you say Oops?   

 

I just thought I'd share that.  :D

That must be a well populated area for Alaska , the whole state has less than 1 million. I would love to go there some day.

I encourage everyone to add Alaska to their bucket list.  It's beautiful and worth the visit!

I ground 8 cups worth of coffee on to my counter this morning. Forgot to swap out the portafilter holder for the standard bin. The dog was looking in that general direction with his head sideways. I looked and thought s#!t I should just go back to bed.

 Sounds like you needed that coffee.

these Guatemala beans are nice. Not good describing flavor/s ... but, seems more sweet than the Kenya AB

 

 

preface - being new to all of this

casual observation ...

specifically to Heritage speakers

It looks as though the preferred amplification designs are from the era the speakers were designed - with a few improvements

 

that [theory] put forth

 I might have an old  [70's vintage] Sansui receiver. I say "might" because it would be at my sister's...  would it be worth pursuing?

It been a LONG time since I have seen it. It isn't a straight amp. I know it's a receiver and I think it came home from VietNam with my bro-in-law. That about as much as I know atm. I'll need to talk to my sis.

 

@Tarheel

It could be a game changer, some of the 9000 series receivers are very highly regarded.

saw a commercial that starts with "Successful people tend to have one thing in common. They read"

 

 any idea what they are selling?

   AUDIO BOOKS

and conclude the ad with

"Listening is the new reading"

 

I think we are in serious trouble

Morning Gents (can I use this for both sexes?) Up and at 'em. Couple cups down, gotta get outside and finish moving some drain line and 5 surface drains. Stupid me I originally put the drains too close to the back of a retaining wall. When they're moved it'll be much better and landscaping chores can continue. Later.....

Quite a score......hope it is all working as it should.  The grease in the Teac pinch rollers tends to harden if not used regularly.
