I always had a thing for the pretty ones too. My opening line in a pub
became: "Can I buy you a house?"
But 3rd time is a charm and the fact she's 18 years younger keeps me
on my toes in all aspects. And yes, I am bragging. <G>

Robatoy is living large I suppose..."
You suck beyond the red line on the Suck-O-Meter!

Ahh yes, a different era, same Prine. He's grown a lot. Especially
since that cancer scare. Like Woody Allen (I think) said: Death is
nature's way of saying HOWDY!
Scared the fuck out of Prine. He's been a clean livin' boy as of late.
Maybe a wee nip from the cask during a concert.
Now he sings about Old Dogs, Children and Watermelon Wine.... and that
is JUST the kind of music I listen to in order to calm my impatience
when I'm reading through all these CNC software manuals and shit.
I'm not very familiar with his personal drama, I've found it difficult
to keep up with actors/musicians/this year's models while confronted
with the need to survive, etc. Did so when young, but you know how it
goes... Sorry to hear of his problems though. Kinda lost interest in
music after losing a huge vinyl collection. Sadly, haven't bought but
a couple CDs in decades. Snagged a few odd bits from YouTube - poor
fidelity but enough to remind one of past glories. Latest listen after
Prine was Tom Waits "God's Away on Business". What a card.
"I'd sell your heart to the junk-man baby
For a buck, for a buck!
If you're looking for someone
To pull you out of that ditch
You're out of luck, you're out of luck.
The ship is sinking, there's a leak,
There's a leak In the boiler room,
The poor, the lame, the blind
Who are the ones left in charge?
Killers, thieves and Lawyers.
God's away, God's away,
God's away On Business. Business."
I guess it sounds better than it looks on paper...
As for the CNC stuff, if you were a bit closer, I might could help you
out. Used to design computer boards when it was impossible to afford
to buy this stuff, and the market was slim. One of the attachments
for this thing: http://www.thevideodoc.com/pelectr2.htm
was a CNC Gerber plot PC board drilling machine. Designed the software
and translator as well as the hardware. It is a hand wired IBM PC ISA
bus card - obviously a prototype. The constant desire to move around
in an attempt to avoid creepy politicos caused me to abandon such
projects, and the stuff has since become much more prevalent. Still
mess with CAD a bit, along with 3DStudioMax - just for kicks. Could
have made a bunch of money early on, but now there are a lot of well
funded and organized players to compete with. Ah, well - what did I
expect from people who make $1600 a day from the taxpayers till?
Honesty? LOL Believe it or not, I used to think circuits were fun.
So did I. Designed many cross overs, some very complex but all
analogue. I used to gobble down the transfer functions like they were
food. I had some pretty beefy boards made to carry the current and a
lot of point to point wiring.
I still prefer a solid stereo set-up over 5 channel any day.
All built by hand back in ~1984. Complete fluke that it survived the
great arson of Christmas '88. 280W/ch @8ohms, 500w @4ohms - if you've
got the AC wiring, breakers, and driver coils for it. Still sounds
better than anything since. Picked up a nice Yamaha rack mount studio
amp a while back, but not as clean. The Sony 5.1 120w/ch amp on the BS
sounds like it's constipated, as do most, but it has a remote. Guess
which is active. Zobel is your friend... What with the WW stuff I've
considered building a new set of speakers as these are 30 years old,
but as I get older it seems pointless / frivolous - like the WW stuff
isn't at this point. Dig a big hole, throw the stuff on top of me, and
cover. Maybe some future archeologist will make some sense of it all.
Well, heck Swingman. If I have to be original, I'm outta luck.
And you well know that when you're senile you repeat yourself.
The wayback machine scares even me with this:
Usenet before Al's Internet proliferated.
Just before the adventure into the insanity known as Florida.
Whole bunch of crap still there under various nom de plumes.
Much younger, better looking, better eyes, and less the misanthrope.
You get a big gold star - at least you were paying attention.
Where shall I stick it? ;-)
