    Five years lost

    Apparently I joined the forum five years ago and didn't remember doing so.

    I must be getting old.

    I cannot find any old posts, so maybe I joined and didn't comment on anything.

    Anyway, I'm here and been into stereo for 40 years or more.

    However I moved six months ago after being in the same house for 27 years, and still have not hooked up my stereo or my TV.

    I guess this shows how far my laptop has gone into supplementing my entertainment needs and habits.

    I'm going to get it hooked up sooner or later, hopefully sooner.

    Oh yea, the new house has a finished walk-out basement, I finally have concrete floors for my equipment and bass needs. This will be my dedicated and acoustically isolated playground. Lots of Mass Loaded Vinyl (MLV) is anticipated.

    Cheers, George/kach22i

    Yep, but it needs a lot of work.

    I have plans for completely rebuilding it, and far from stock.

    Most of the reasons for it not running is all the alterations I've done. undoing 90% is on my agenda.

    You know, I might have figured out why I didn't post here five years ago.

    I did post, except they never showed up and I might have gotten discouraged.

    This happened again just recently, another half dozen posts lost awaiting moderator approval.

    I really don't like writing my guts out only to have it disappear like it never happened.

    Kind of defeats the purpose of having a forum at all, right?
