    That's what she said! :#






















    C'mon, man, you can't tee 'em up like that and think I'm not gonna swat 'em down the fairway!



    Sounds like a good time, fellas! I'm still hoping someone - with some awesome gear! - will do something similar in the Twin Cities.

    Also, remember...pics or it didn't happen!

    Heh -- I decided to conduct a subwoofer test with Kid Rock's Cowboy last night. It was awesome.

    On topic, unfortunately, I've got stuffs I've got to do in NH on the 19th. They're good stuffs, but still that NH/IL thing is the bugbear, you know? :neutral:

    Yeah, that's how it worked. Hoping for best; wife's allergies/asthma is raging and I don't fancy leaving her home all day with the boys if she's not doing better by then. Fingers crossed.

    I truly thought about driving up for this just to meet & hang out with you Aaron! I off the 17th and could grab a room in Iowa on Friday and make it to Rockford on Saturday but I tore my ankle muscle last Saturday night :(

    I think it is not possible for now :'( It would have been fracking so cool to finally meet you Brother. Thanks for all you done for me and some day I find way of meeting You and your brother Rich and all those in you neighborhood :) p.s. if you ever sell your mainframe from Bottlehead keep me in mine okay ;)

    Sucks but that is what life throws us! then he move on and deal with those moments!

    Well....P00P!

    Just cut the leg off - then your ankle won't matter any more!

    I’ll revise my will and leave the Mainline to you.

    Maybe sometime when it warms up make the trip and we’ll go visit brother Rich.

    So to all you house wives, and grandma's at Thanksgiving, please be careful not to tear a calf muscle while in the kitchen :/

    I'll take responsibility for Tony using Allen. I used it in his and my conversation.

    Those of us that remember the RAS page (remember groups? Another casualty of Vanilla) just call him A2.

    I was a late add to the RAS and actually don't fully understand the origins of 'A2'!

    ...takes deep bow...

    I AM THE A2!!!

    There was already an "A" - another Aaron. So when I came on board a name change was required and "A" became A1. I took 2nd place...

    Thanks for the offer.

    It would have been easy to pop up to Rockford from St. Charles and put some faces to the personalities but I'm off to Colorado for Thanksgiving.

    I got my DAC parts. Can I use your solder station while I'm there? :D

    Never mind, my wife said that would be rude. :o
