    I want to vent some disgust here...

    You know if James had not mentioned his age, I very much doubt that people would be telling him about getting off his high horse, about being rude, about .. being a self-assured individual who thinks for himself. From what I've seen, I think James is going to be quite a successful person. He...

    Any (former) musicians give up their instrument?

    Why don't you bring your proficiency to some tunes of your own making and put them out as an album? It doesn't have to all happen overnight, but it can be an ongoing project. I imagine Paul Simon was in a rut after Simon & Garfunkel and his early solo work, but then turned to African music to...

    Any (former) musicians give up their instrument?

    You too, Zane? I got through that lack-of-interest phase by writing my own tunes. It's a breeze to do today with a soundcard and multitracking software. It helps to have some experience or anecdote to base the tune off of. In my case, I did a guitar tune about an acquaintance of mine who...

    Help appraising a Stratocaster...

    It is not a Squier, and it is in fantastic shape. Looking at the wood, I see good grain and no discontinuities. There is not a scratch on it. Action is fine, no buzzing, intonation is good. Comes with a hard shell case that is also in great shape. Also comes with shoulder strap. I'll try to...

    Help appraising a Stratocaster...

    Hopefully someone on the forum might know something about ascertaining the resale value of a Fender Stratocaster guitar. I got it used from a Strat enthusiast, and it was in fantastic condition, and was improved by some aftermarket parts. It's a Mexican-made Strat (serial MN9.....), "Midnight...

    bandwidth limitation on optical cabling?

    I would suspect that the quality of the optical material used, and the quality of the outer cladding (and therefore the uniformity of the critical angle over the length of the fiber) would play a large role in overall bandwidth capacity. Think of it as a telescope made with finely-machined...

    what is it with the stereotype associated with asians?

    The stereotype is there for good reason. Most of the Asian families in North America came over here either with a good education or a solid work ethic. These families tend to value education more than most (although there are exceptions). I've noticed a lot of Jewish people value education in...

    I hate slugs!

    Ah, the slug. Pounds without the acceleration. I'll stick with kilograms, and let the Imperial people slug it out amongst themselves. Metric is a good thing! Now, excuse me, as I have a show to watch at 9.25 o'clock ;) -JNS

    George Harrison remastered catalog and DVD coming!!

    George Harrison thought so too, Al, but he decided not to change it because it would be meddling with an album already established in the minds of many listeners.

    RP91 Tale of Woe!

    Isn't it funny how we expect electronics to be irreparable once they start acting up (or shutting off)? We've been conditioned by throwaway-electronics! -JNS

    Are all CD players created equal?

    Not unless you want to hear a difference. If you need a simple functional CD player, then anything will do. Remember that this place is filled with people who can hear the color green if they try hard enough. -JNS

    Downbeat clapping

    The bigger the venue, the more sound propagation delays adversely affect the clapping. Everyone can be clapping at the 'right' time, but this is a relative thing since the sound wave to which they are synchronizing is washing over the crowd and thus arriving to different people at different...

    Why are Americans so stubborn about $1 coins?

    I didn't know that the United Statesians used dollar coins. I'm a debit card man myself, but finding $7 worth of change by only having 4 coins still strikes me as a pleasant surprise. Makes me hate pennies even more though. -JNS

    Any insomniacs out there?

    Can't sleep? Try my "Dissociative Thinking" method! In this technique, you actively try and dissociate your thoughts so that you don't lock onto ideas that otherwise would keep you awake. For example, if I am up I might be thinking "Today I worked on this so tomorrow I should work on...

    XLR Balanced Jacks

    XLR balanced cabling is for maintaining signal integrity over long cable runs. Hundreds of feet. If you are not running your cables that far, you probably don't need your cabling to be XLR balanced. -JNS
