    So I'm reading the Wall Street Journal's Weekend section for Friday, 1/4/02, and there's an article about home theaters entitiled "Now Playing -- In the Basement". And suddenly I hit this paragraph:
    The rest of the article is pretty interesting, but unfortunately I can't provide a link. AFAIK, online access to WSJ stories is limited to subscribers.

    If RAF's home theater setup "only" cost $35K then my home theater only cost me one dollar! [​IMG]
    $35K wouldn't cover the cost of his software, let alone the equipment and the room!
    Me thinks someone left a "1" off before that 3! [​IMG]

    The article focuses on basic hardware setups, so I'm sure the figure wasn't meant to include software.

    Robert gets a little ink and everyone gets excited. My name is printed in the paper 2-3 times a month and noone cares. Obviously you guys don't read the Police Briefs section. [​IMG]

    RAF, if you are looking for an usher, and you pay over $50,000 a year for that job, give me a holler.

    Some comments from the "media star:" [​IMG]
    Ryan,
    Sorry, but that's why I have grandchildren! [​IMG] And now with five grandkids, I'm set for quite a number of years.
    Thanks for all the kind words. I think that the article has to help spread the word about HT. Packy has already informed my that there seems to be a bit of increased activity here due to it, and that's a good thing.
    Keep those cards and letters coming.

    That's too bad, Scooter. I thought she had your phone number. Whatever. The Scooterplex would have been another nice angle to the story.
