Happy birthday!

Buy yourself a shiny new 939 for your 39th birthday ;-)

Or a 775 con-roe[TM] or a 65nm AMD.

Congrats, you've consecutively sucked at dying for 39 straight years! Horay for not dying for that long! Can't say the same for myself.

Why don't you look "really" happy? Reason I ask is because it's a happy time and you don't seem really "happy".

Yeah, but I refuse to install it!!! Sometimes original code is best...Yes, Now iAgree with you. (I've got 22-23 years to go until I'm outdated). But I've Heard that God had Bundled that Patch Fix with "Genuine Advantage Validation" Add-on. So It Might Give you some Trouble passing that check :p 
May 21, 2006 7:03:42 PM

Oh, I was stoked... It was early morn, before I had finished my coffee, and less than 3 months after Katrina took out my 2 story workshop in the back yard, lost most of my valuable tools and equipment, and two rooms damaged in my house...

BTW, I couldn't help noticing you're using a Dell keyboard on that sweet rig. What gives? :lol: 


It's just a keyboard. I'm using an HP keyboard and mouse on my sweet (I wish) rig (at least it's better than yours :p ). As of right now, Rich only has 364 days left of being 30-something. I hope I'm never that old.

You refuse to install it because it's the "Genuine Advantage" crap, and they'll find out that your OS is pirated :) . Happy day-after-birthday

Happy B Day Rich.

I've heard at 40, life starts... but I could be wrong. :oops: 

I'm only 2 years from 40.

Sorry to read of your property lost on Katrina.

Happy Birthday Rich !!!
Stick with the hardware, cake is overrated.
May 21, 2006 10:32:32 PM

Do you know how outdated you would be if you were a computer? You must have Vacuum tubes under that hat! :twisted:

J/K. Happy Late Birthday. Have a great year.

Hehe, unlike some other posters, his head is'nt the vacuum tube :lol:

Happy B-Day dude!! Have fun. :tongue:
May 22, 2006 9:38:51 PM

Don't knock Vacuum Tubes! Invented in 1904, still the best way of getting something louder. Nothing like 'em! I'd like to see a PC that's still the peak of it's field 100 years later.

From what I am told by my musician friends, there is nothing better at sound amplification.

Even for stereo systems (as opposed to live music amplification) the high end tube amplification is extremely good. And expensive. For rock guitar, I still am a Marshall fan. 60 watts, 2x12", Strat = killer!
May 22, 2006 9:52:16 PM

Uhhm, you lost me at expensive stereo = good.
May 22, 2006 10:01:35 PM

TSL60? As far as Marshall's go I only really like JTM45 (Plexi and Bluesbreaker) and I'm quite partial to those 70's Master Volume JMPs.

Expensive stereo doesn't always mean good. But it does help a lot of the time.

I like that plexi too. And yes, TSL60. I still love'm. Not sure my neighbors always have.

Tubes in home audio gear pretty much either means expensive or lovingly maintained old gear. I grew up helping my father assemble Dyna kits and other tube gear. Nowadays, Manley, for example, is really excellent gear but even if I could afford it, I'm not sure I would buy it. Sorta like quad SLI. I do have an Audio Research tube preamp but am not even using it now. A Musical Fidelity A308cr took its place...

Uhh, it was a joke?

I am not an audiophile and my Panasonic 5.1 Home Theater system is good enough for me.

I'm not an audiophile either. Just a music lover.
