    ^^still putting in the 65 hour work week. Have 2 more years to go and I have 50 years working full time, then I retire. I think that is long enough.

    As long as you enjoy it, it's cool.
    I enjoy some aspects of working, but not others -- I was happy to retire a bit early, and I hope the economy will permit me to stay that way.

    As a (part time) process development consultant, now I get to have all the fun (attacking and helping to solve real problems) with a minimal amount of the drudgery (hiring/firing, performance management, budgeting, preparing dashboards). And it pays, actually, really well on a per hour basis.

    I like to say that being a consultant (in my business) is like being a grandparent. We get to have all of the fun, but we have very little of the dirty work to do.

    The tubes are sold! LOL
    "Appreciation of audio is a completely subjective human experience. Measurements can provide a measure of insight, but are no substitute for human judgment. Why are we looking to reduce a subjective experience to objective criteria anyway? The subtleties of music and audio reproduction are for those who appreciate it.

    I can neither confirm or deny Jesse's involvement with this thread, but as shocking as him buying an Emotiva product would be, that is not the case here. Such an action would have resulted in a cataclysmic quantum singularity, wiping out the entire universe, as well as their parallel counterparts.


    Nice try though.

    Well put! You just might want to try selling that as a new program to Hulu or even Netflix.
