Does Mr. Carver ever visit this site?

Seeing how this is a site all about Bob Carver's companies and his products and how some of you know him personally, does anyone know if he ever visits this site and has posted on it?
I'd be really interested to hear his take on his past products, the current Sunfire products, and his views on the audio market in general, both nowadays and in the future.
On the Buell enthusiasts site, it's always rumoured that Erik Buell is one of the anonymous posters but nobody knows for sure except for the administrators. I'm pretty sure that some of them are his, though.
Just a thought. If I'm overstepping my bounds, please delete this post.

Re: Does Mr. Carver ever visit this site?

The people here that know him personally have invited him to Carverfest. I think it would be quite likely that he checks this place out. I would like to see him smile when he reads how much we enjoy the Carver products that were made his way. We also won't trade them for anything.

Re: Does Mr. Carver ever visit this site?

From what I have heard, and been told, he is basically computer illiterate, and has never visited the forum.
I have tried to get him to visit the forum, and post, but it has never happened yet.
He has his own user name, (that I set up for him) and he's never bothered to logged in.

I personally find it a little insulting, that no one form Carver ever bothers to visit, help, share anything on here.

Most people that have anything to do with Carver, seem to like to use the forum to promote items/services, but never bother to take the time to contribute at all. That annoys me.
Whatever you do in life will be insignificant, but it's very important that you do it... because nobody else will.

No, to answer your question. Few member actually know him personally.

If part of his job at Elan is to promote the product, this would be the place for it. Free advertising delivered to the faithful.
An interview or a company-approved essay would really go a long way here and fall on very receptive ears. Pardon the pun.

Re: Does Mr. Carver ever visit this site?

As with some artists/creative geniuses, perhaps he has no interest or fondness for past accomplisments and prefers to look only ahead. How could it be possible that such a technical wiz be computer "illiterate" , seems kinda contradictory to me! :-k gdb

Not everyone can be like Tony Stark. [-X

I suspect Bob Carver may be like many geniuses- superior in his field and falling short in another. After all, he is just a human! O:)

Re: Does Mr. Carver ever visit this site?

I've known many bright people (my dad for one; schooled in engineering and medicine) who are quite talented in their fields, yet not all that handy with computers. I still have to help them with their computer problems whenever I'm in town! ;-)

Re: Does Mr. Carver ever visit this site?

I have seen him logged in to the forum on 2 occasions since his first (and only) post, both around 3AM my time.

Re: Does Mr. Carver ever visit this site?

I work anywhere from 10 to 14 hours a day, 7 days a week and often have 10 or 15 minutes to kill while I wait for something to finish, so I'm often on at that time of the day. Since I also suffer from chronic insomnia, I often only get to sleep sometimes after 6AM before getting back to work at 8:30AM, so yeah, I'm on here pretty much all the time. I need a life.

Sounds more to me that you need a vacation. Long one at that.
