  1. Incredible! Really good it went so well for you. 👍 I have 2 degenerated discs - c1/C2 and c4/c5. No numbing issues normally, but good to hear replacements can be done with great success. Thanks for sharing!!!! When I saw the title, I thought about a spinal disc, but then thought Nah, gotta be a hard drive issue.🤔
  2. Sounds tasty! We have all but the cherries and will try that in the morning🤔 If we’ll be entertaining, Ill put a small 8 quart cooler (or 2) in the freezer the night before. For the festivities, this has been the most popular concoction: Blender 1/3 full of ice 1/3 cup of tequila (I usually use Cuervo Gold) 1/3 cup of sweet n sour mix 1/3 can of crushed pineapple 2-3 good scoops of pineapple sherbet blend until smooth repeat until cooler is full use a ladle to serve and enjoy! The pre-frozen cooler will keep this frozen for hours. And keeps me from being enslaved to the kitchen.
  3. Yea, risk is through the roof! Get some perspective - cashiers have a riskier job than you. You guys are so misunderstood! The fans - who work in hospitals, supermarkets, etc. really should be more understanding. Unbelieveable!
  4. Ya know, that’s a funny thing to think about! My wife and I have the good fortune of working from home and we both work in healthcare. Our kids are working too. Our lives haven’t changed much, except we don’t see the kids often. I have enough projects to do to keep me busy long past my natural life expectancy, so boredom isn’t an issue. But we have found ourselves getting a bit edgy. Not at each other, not at anything really. Its just a case of each day being like the last. The gloomy, chilly weather here isn’t helping either. Sometimes we will go for a drive if the sun is shining, just to get out. And we talk.
  5. Fortunately my wife and I both work from home and have, so far, been largely unaffected by the lockdown. Although we’re getting a bit buggy, and just take a drive in the country to get out of the house occasionally.
  6. For Ladies Only. Next... recognize these? Sorry ‘bout the small pic...

    +1 Ive been through the “commodity” thought process myself in healthcare. imho, much of what he says is true about MANY industries.

  9. Welcome back Tomcatcrew! So here’s the thing...nobody comes here to “thin the herd” so to speak. I came to this site looking for guidance in servicing the c-1 and m1.0t I’ve had since new. That was a bit over 10 years ago. I was guided alright. The C-1has been BillD modded and the m1.0t has been upgraded to mkII Opt II. Both performed by me. OCCD came with my membership. I didn’t ask, nobody told me. Amp count is up to, uh, let’s see, 8. A couple preamps. ALSIII’s, one receiver. And that’s just the Carver stuff I’ve accumulated. As has been stated, swap gear in and through different configurations. Let your ears judge. You already have the hard part done - you own the gear. Have fun!
  10. Pretty good! here’s one band who was ahead of their time...
  11. We watched this recently too. 90 minutes well spent!
  12. I agree with the above statements regarding trust and management. I have been working from a home office for 5 or 6 years now. There are a LOT fewer distractions in my home office than I had with an office at the hospital. My wife has been with her current employer nearly a year and has been working from home for around 5 months now. Her office is upstairs, mine is in the basement aka my Subterranean Lair. Her employer is very happy with her performance numbers, my manager has known me for a long long time and knows I take care of business. My productivity numbers I’m sure reflect this as well. Leadership - real leadership - will know who’s up to the task and will let the team do what they do best. I share the hope that this will serve as a wake up call to businesses everywhere. What we do in an office ACN be done in any office. It doesn’t matter where the office is. With this, the COVID-19 scare really hasn’t affected us at all.
  13. Well, it looks like I missed a lot during the past week. Ed, I wish I were nearby so I could work with you on this project. Sounds like a blast! I have some designs in mind for modifying my als3’s but nothing like what you’re undertaking. It looks like you have some expertise on tap already. The only thing I could offer would be to suggest active crossovers. ...just a thought...
  14. Hi EdNeck and welcome to the site! I have a pair of ALS III’s (not +). The crossovers are original, the ribbons have been rebuilt and I have installed Infinity Perfect 10 subwoofers in the base boxes. I read your post last night and was wondering a few things: 1) Are you restoring a pair of ALS III’s or perhaps a pair of ALS Silvers? 2) do you have crossovers already and need them replaced/repaired? 3) what ribbon tweeter are you planning to install next to the original ribbons? 4) did I completely misread your original post?🤪
  15. Have an awesome Happy Birthday Barry!
