That reminds me...........someone that I know has a birthday today. Great.......one more thing for him to get depresses about.
Oh well, not my problem.
Anyway, yes, it seems that our minor revolt had some effect on that other place. Amazing, isn't it??? So, I guess it has all been worth it.
We could use more members. Contributing members. Useful content is always in need. I think it is safe to say that the direction that we are heading that we will not have to worry that this place will deteriorate to a car audio hangout. Or a place that the unscrupulous will come to peddle their dreck. Maybe having someone as frightening as me for head mod scares them off. In which case, I may be stuck with this position for quite some time.
Anyway, we seem to be strongly oriented in the area of solid-state. Not much inroads into speakers or tube gear. Having an active speaker area would be nice, but until and unless we attract some fairly knowledgeable people in that area, we will have to hobble along the way we are.
The only thing that I find disappointing is that some of the people who pushed strongly for this have seemed to fallen off of the face of the earth. A few are lucky: they found jobs that take all of their free time. Some others have just flaked out on us, and yes, I fell let let down. (Seems to be the norm these days.........."friends" who claim that they will help flaking out. I have experienced similar problems with my business. The end result is that audio becomes less fun with each passing day. So, I have said this before, do not do this for a living. You will come to wish that you hadn't.)
But thanks to all of you who have stuck it out and have not bailed on us. Time will tell if it was all worthwhile. So far, it has been. But it can always be better.
