    Thanks for explaining why they are limp. I'd want at least ONE hand on the cable just in case... ;)

    The music in the room is spectacular. All the first class speakers are sounding like I remember them. I'm hearing some of the newer ones I bought after the room was cluttered for the first time set up properly.

    I've always had the couch sitting on gliders. I used to turn it years ago. I'm going to go look at when I could. I had Maggies then. I'm going to search for the year they were in the room now...

    Nov. 7th, 2013.
    Surprisingly, the room looks very much the same now... WOW. freaky! It's like there was a "time warp" where I went down to hell and back. weird. I see where things were in the same places after 8 years but I moved them here and there lately. wow...

    The RTA12b's WERE behind the black Oriental screen until yesterday or the day before. I sold 3 big sets of speakers last week and had a lot of space by the Bowflex to play with. I have other speakers behind the Oriental screen sitting in a tall bookcase. I wanted to get to them soon so I moved the RTA12b's away from behind the screen. I moved some other speakers to that open space beside the Bowflex that I hope sell. Moving those speakers over made space on the right side. There are GREAT speakers in the right corner and against the right wall that I want to listen to in the future. The RTA12b's are in front of them, waiting for their turn to sing in this beautiful reclaimed space too.

    I did sell my set of SDA2b's for cheap. Unfortunately the buyer said he got back home in Raleigh and turned them up too loud and he thinks he blew 2 of the mid-woofers. He's supposed to get back to me with more info on what got damaged. I told him I might have a mid-woofer or 2 that I would send him for free like you did for me.
    I'm still waiting for his reply though.
    I might call him tomorrow.

    Great pics! Well done!

    P.S. Since the story tells how the Prodigal Son goes off and lives the high life, before coming back with his money all spent, but full of remorse and contrition. So is he coming back full of remorse and contrition? 🤷‍♂️

    No, that was Prodigal V. 1.0

    This is Prodigal V. 4.0, where our protaganist goes off, prospers, enriches the lives of those around him with his wisdom and humor while those left behind are filled with remorse at their great loss.

    Just wait until Prodigal V. 5.0 comes out !! 😳🇺🇸

    heh -- I was gonna proudly post "No 286s here*"... but... then I remembered an Epson 286 desktop I bought for $20 from my employer at the time (ca. 1991) in a sealed-bid auction. It's in the basement.

    Back in the day, early 80's, I was the proud owner of a Tandy 1000A.
    8086 runnig at a blistering 4.7 Mhz !
    Not just 256k ram but 640k ram !
    And DUAL 5.25" floppies !.
    And you want to talk graphics ? Not your wimpy 4-color IBM CGA but the 16-color Tandy Graphics Adapter (TGA)!
    A software package called "Deskmate" that was actually pretty functional and cool.

    Yep, when compared to the IBM PC Jr theTandy 1000A , not unlike Winamp, really whipped the lhama's a$$ . 😳

    wrong ? I think not !

    darn you, @mrbigbluelight! NOW I am gonna have to go and disinter the one Tandy 'pute downstairs and see if it is a 1000 or a 1000A! :# I do know (i.e., my recollection is) that it uses the... unusual and seldom encountered Intel 80186 processor. Well, OK, wiki-P sez the 80186 was used in the Tandy 2000... so now I am definitely gonna have to disinter the 'pute downstairs. :|

    Speaking of more-or-less-but-not-quite PC clones of the early 80s, my (our) own first "PC" was an AT&T 6300, which was a pretty nice computer for its time. It was an AT&T branded version of an Olivetti (!) PC, used the i8086 processor (true 16 bit), and had proprietary high-res (640 x 400, IIRC) mono graphics that were... pretty good, actually, for scientific graphics. We also had one in the lab, which came in handy (and vice versa). :) It was also, like all Olivetti products, attractive and compact (compared to the original IBM PC, which used the i8088 8/16 bit processor, as y'all likely remember). That one I don't have any more, unbelievable as that might sound! :*

    And our Meandering Minstrel of Mirth with a pic of his magic twanger in further development !

    “The shades of night were falling fast,
    As through an Alpine village passed
    A youth, who bore, 'mid snow and ice
    A banner with the strange device,
    Excelsior !”

    Perchance the sobriauet for his device of wonder ?
    Perhaps, maybe perhaps.
    We minions who have been left behind in the Wastelands may never know
