    You'll know it when you feel it.

    @lightman1 = IGNORE.......

    What's your address?

    1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

    Hurry, bring lawyers guns and money. B)

    What, no strippers? You got to bring those.

    Some things go without saying, @lightman1 knows to always have strippers tag along.

    He did come off as a man's man. ;)

    Met @Lightstar1 and @EndersShadow last Saturday. Good guys, (may be a stretch for the notorious @lightman1 ) >:)

    YMMV? The first M is what gets me? Usually there's an R in that position.

    DAC = digital analog converter
    Pre/pro = preamp processor

    JBH - Jesse's beautiful hair

    Would like to buy some hair product?

    No need, my hair is perfect.



    Critic Steve Simels said (approvingly) of this album when it was released: "It'll kill your house plants." High praise indeed.

    I'll always call myself a Noob and without JBH and a truckload DS to help create the NAS, this hobby wouldn't have been anywhere near as cool as it has turned into...and then of course, none of it would be happening at all it it weren't for the PAF!! Some great folks here, that's for sure!

    Realizing full well that none of all y'all care... but... I have absolutely no idea what the sentence fragment above means.

  • Trigger = low voltage/amperage signal used to turn remote components on/off.

    Triggered = emotional meltdown experienced by less-stout persons when met with any statement beyond "Hello".
