    I picked up a couple of sets of NOS original Carver speaker badges a few weeks back. I am only going to use one set, so I would like to offer up the other set on here. 50 posts required and just say "I'm in". We'll let this run until next Sunday March 30. Thanks Joe

    Some of you already know that i'm a marine engineer, and work on a norwegian purse seiner/trawler. This video is actually from the boat where i work, it was made for promoting the possibilities, and encouraging young students to chose an education in fishery.

    I've been back at work for about 14 days now, the first trip went quite good, we had good weather for most of the 12 days trip, but the fishing was a bit slow though. A couple of days ago we were back in Norway unloading our catch of 1860 tonnes of blue whiting. Now we're on our way back out towards the fishing grounds west of Ireland, it's a four day long trip each way. Hopefully the fishing will be a bit better this trip, most of all i hope for good weather.. Here's a picture taken from the bridge a couple of years ago.

    I didn't have to think about this for more than 2 seconds.... "Time" Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day Fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town Waiting for someone or something to show you the way Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today And then one day you find ten years have got behind you No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun And you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking Racing around to come up behind you again The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older Shorter of breath and one day closer to death Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say Home, home again I like to be here when I can When I come home cold and tired It's good to warm my bones beside the fire Far away, across the field The tolling of the iron bell Calls the faithful to their knees To hear the softly spoken magic spell

    Vacuum Tube Valley VSAC 2003 Show Report Only at the VSAC - 1900 volts, dazzling filaments, and the engine-room smell of ozone. Now that the kiddies have gone to bed, I can show you the real VSAC, real-life scenes you'll never see at any CES or Stereophile show. Yes folks, that's 1900 volts behind the yellow crime-scene tape, so no kids, cats or Stereophile reviewers allowed here. The only thing missing is a Jacobs Ladder - zaaaap - snap - zaaaap - snap - and the Bride of Frankenstein. As you can imagine, when Josh Stippich (Electronluv) got these monsters up and running, word spread through the Friday crowd like wildfire. "Have you seen what Josh did this time?" "The GM100's are unbelievable!" Many show-goers were speechless when they saw them light up - I certainly was. To give sense of scale, the GM100 transmitter tubes are two-and-half feet high, and about 8 inches around. Did I mention they were bright? Word from the floor was both the GM100 amps and Gary Dahl's Aurora's (which have Josh's copper top plates) sounded excellent with the new Electronluv horns, with the Aurora filling in while Josh and his father worked out ways to power up the GM100 amps without immediately taking out the hotel-room circuit breaker. The eventual solution was to power each amp from its own room - yes, this amp was powered by the room next door.

    Thanks for all the fish! Do you have a stereo system on your ship?
