Whatever you do in life will be insignificant, but it's very important that you do it... because nobody else will.

Good judgment comes from experience,but experience usually comes from bad judgment.

The best thing is to learn from others that have mastered the one thing you need to learn!

I would tell you to go to hell but I already work there and I don't want to see your ugly face every day!

Ain't that just PURDY!!! 8)
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

Dave/James

The system looks great, bet it sounds better.

With all those tubes, no central heating will be required to keep warm.

Or in your case the central air is going to have to work extra hard to keep cool.

You sure you don't want to lug that to CF again this year? :-s
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.
