    I feel like Tony Soprano's nephew, whose sense of self-worth rose several notches when he saw his name in the papers along with the other mafia bosses.

    That's the funny part, it wasn't anything original, or anything that I thought up [​IMG]
    They have an article on using laser pointers to align speakers, and quoted one of my posts on the Audio Asylum on this topic. I was talking about using a cheap key-chain pointer to do this, by taping it to something flat like a cassette tape in order to remove alignment errors in the laser. AFAIK, this is fairly old information - I know I read it somewhere on the net, quite possibly right here on HTF.
    Oh well, I got a kick out of it. If nothing else, it's a testimonial to how much time I spend online... I wonder how impressed my manager would be [​IMG]

    Talk about flat surfaces... I epoxied a laser pointer to my SPL meter and etched a mini-protractor on one side for checking angles. It's like an all-in-one home theater tool. [​IMG] I should take a picture of it sometime...
    Congrats Saurav!

    Hi Saurav --
    Did you know ahead of time that they were going to use you as a source? Did they ask permission to quote you? Was just curious. I think it's pretty cool. [​IMG]

    Someone did email me and ask, but I thought it was yet another person opening his "Home Theater Tips and Tweaks" page. I had no idea it was for Stereophile [​IMG]

    I once got a letter published in ICE magazine regarding an ELP remaster that had dropped adding the lyrics to Brain Salad Surgery, a problem btw that still exists even with the lastest remasters from Sanctuary. [​IMG]

    Just a couple of months ago, one of our moderators...Jay, got a letter to the editor published. Seems like it mentioned HTF, or at least the on-line community. I can't remember what it was about, specifically, but another one of our family is famous [​IMG]
