Re: More fun refurbishing audio stuff

From what I've heard, I suspect that this would definitely be worth the effort. The EPI speakers had/have a good reputation for natural sound. As I understand it, their design philosophy was to stick with a very simple crossover mechanism (often just a simple high-pass capacitor for the tweeter) an...

Re: More fun refurbishing audio stuff

Evaluating whether I'm going to refurb a pair of these: http://www.humanspeakers.com/e/epi200.htm

EPI 200, they include a Tweeter & an 8" Mid/woofer, and a 12" passive radiator on the bottom.

I already have a pair of 'Really Big Ol' Speakers!!!', but another pair wouldn't hurt.

Re: More Stuff

It's been my experience, reading up on this stuff in old time'y 'How to live in the Wilderness' books,; you'll want to dress them down right away, esp getting the glands away from the meat- causes a flavour difference otherwise. Said to be esp true of things like Cougar/Mountain Lion. "Don't Eat Rar...

Re: Schtupid Email Scams

Oh Nozz! I'm being rejected by NetFlix! The links click back an vk.cc domain... Funny thing, besides not having a Netflix account myself (family does, but I digress), I've taken note of the almost complete lack of SPAM recently either showing up in the SPAM folder itself or like this one, the In box.

Re: Older pictures?

Here is (a work in progress) list of the 'eXtra' Wapsi pictures I've been able to glean. Since I'm currently in a Bandwidth limited situation, the actual uploading will need a day or two. If it's possible to keep this going through at least the end of this coming weekend, that would be a kindness. T...

PS- One of the local theaters was revived by an HP Heir and plays any manner of Old Film. The current program is entitled: 80 Years Ago in This Theatre: The Films of 1939 Now, granted, that's 20 years after the end of WWI, but still- it's what the generation who endured, and their offspring, would h...

I’m on the road right now and don’t use it everyday, but the first thing I thought of was ‘lock the Task Bar’, even though it doesn’t do what it used to... I’ll dig around this evening.

I’d certainly appreciate it if I could get in on this. While I have some parked on Ext Hard Drive(s), I know I lost a good chunk to misfortune this year.

Re: Brave Browser review

I've tried Brave in the past, but not recently. I'll try it again, and one thing to consider is that the 'layers of the onion', that is- built up install/patches/'just real life' can often cause a broken situation that a clean install will never see. It's going to be a while until I see for myself, ...
