  1. A flat from a key, now THAT takes talent! I'd say "well done," but it's kinda the opposite. For me, I managed to pick up a fairly large bolt, once, straight into the center of the tread. It couldn't have been more perfectly aligned. Oops.
  2. A HUGE congrats to Zach! Well earned and deserved. It was your postings about Zack that showed me that this was a community, not just an audio group, before I joined. Keep the updates coming, and give him our best wishes. I, too, am really glad to see you back. As long as you are okay, the reasons are completely okay. I can completely understand your reasons, and I hope the break helped. Try to keep things fun, as much as you can - you care enough that it can easily get to even the best. Thank you for coming back - your quiet voice of reason, and sage info mean a lot to us. I hope you've shaken the flu, and made many a competing car dealership jealous.
  3. I guess enough good beer will make anything palatable...?
  4. Ouch - hope things are better for you now. Try to make up for the (painfully) missed celebrations.
  5. @zumbini , you and Zack are welcome to it. 😀 To me, that rates below the level of those weird coloured ketchups they had for kids a few years back. BTW, nice to see you back - you had played such a key roll here, and while I'm sure you were enjoying a much needed break from things, you were definitely missed, especially by those of us with much to learn. Oh @#$%, who am I kidding - the truth is I was beginning to worry, and thinking of asking if anyone knew that you were okay. Glad to see you seem to be fine.😌
  6. And if you don't, you have Heinz's Yuk-Yuk sauce. 😛
  7. Truth in marketting!!!!
  8. You can also keep an eye on Craigslist, Facebok Marketplace, and US Audio Mart for offerings local to you. That said, a unit that has passed through the hands of someone like @kve777 is going to be better than brand new, and you can know the service was done right.
  9. Welcome @Signal Man - there's both a wealth of knowledge (aside from Yours Truly) and a wealth of encouragement into the Carver, and general good audio world (this time, including myself). Take a bit of time - a great C1 that meets your desires will likely appear. Yes, shipping can be a killer. If you think the numbers you saw were bad, some of us are in other countries. I'd take your costs in a heartbeat! 😁
  10. Now we need to Photoshop "The Carver Site" onto her sash.
  11. Congrats, on making it through another wild spin around the sun! Make sure you live it up, and enjoy the music!
  12. Another year older, and deeper in ... bad jokes! Go live it up!!!!!!!
  13. Does anyone have any decent copies of old Carver Ads that could be used in whole or part? Another option might be some good front pictures of some of the equipment. I have to admit the Carver Money Pit will be hard to top. Absolutely spot on, Rich!
  14. That's like when you see a monster RV towing a smarcar for local runarounds, right?
  15. Incredible pictures, Mark - you could not have staged them better. Good for you getting out, and checking out the event. Yes, that beast probably felt like nothing else in the train world, because it is like nothing else. It's great to see they have one of those behemoths back in operation, again. I can't imagine how many moving parts there must be on that thing - all of which need copious amounts of grease, oil or other lubricants - constantly.
