    A Call For Humor!

    Well, no. Mebbe a melange of hollandaise. As they say in the classics "Das machine is nicht fur gefingerpoken und mittengrabben. Ist easy schnappen der springenwerk, blowenfusen und corkenpoppen mit spitzensparken. Ist nicht fur gewerken by das dummkopfen. Das rubbernecken sightseeren keepen...

    For those of you that are around 50 YO and over - do you think about death?

    Hhmm, I'll concoct a diy allegory (if that's what it is) ; Imagine each of us, when born, start out as if we're in our very own bucket being swung around by life itself. Each year our 'string' gets a little longer between us and 'life'. Hang in there with me; you all know that when you swing a...

    Asimov Foundation

    Someone put me right, but I vaguely remember Hollywood was going to have a crack at 'Rama'. That'd be so cool.

    Life without tone controls etc.

    Occasionally my wife points out, quite rightly, that I am being very unbalanced and a complete knob. Hence I conclude that I most certainly need both balance control and some knobs to adjust my room presence ;)

    High resolution audio vs. CD: A null-test

    sorry, that is right. It's hard to think of english as the lowest form of the germanic languages but there you go. https://lrc.la.utexas.edu/eieol/engol

    How did software development become so hard (Windows)???

    Indeed, wipe and re-image is the quickest solution to bring user happiness back on track *provided* [and I'm talking within an enterprise setup] user and data storage are separated entities. Still annoys me that I can re-image an equivalent sized Linux in ~3 minutes, sometimes less than 2...

    Nice Op Amp article in 'Silicon Chip' mag

    Hi all, just got my latest dose of 'Silicon Chip' magazine. In the August edition there's 'The history of Op Amps'; "Harold S. Black's discovery of negative feedback paved the way for the development of operational amplifiers, which are widely used in all sorts of electronic devices, especially...

    Is audiophilia a symptom of something undiscovered in audiophiles?

    Hhhmm, following on from the guitar post; I play guitar regularly, but can't come at 'collecting' them. After all, I can only play one at a time AND I'll only be able to play the same way with the same chord shapes and riffs. However, I *really* like the look of some guitars and admit to...

    Oh the wonders of the Interwebs; I've just fallen into a bunch of Russian stuff. Here's the first one: Valeriy Stepanov Fusion Project. Unreal. Hope you've got a spare hour :-)
