    I’m just glad I joined while it was still a cool place to be a part of even if it was short lived.. I still have a few sets of Ben’s silver cables as well.. Good Times...

    Just over 10 years for me, three temporary bans, a hand full of warnings, I still survived... LOL !!!!

    Darla was a cop down in Florida who was on here......oh, maybe about 5 or 6 years ago. Very friendly and stood out for having a nice system and being the second "consistently" posting woman besides our fixture, Cathy.

    Last I heard, she had roommate issues and then *poof*.

    You know, the part of Florida that consumes the state called Florida?....Yeah, that part of Florida.

    Give or take about 600 miles or so?

    I am so glad I remember things like this. It's very important to future generations. You can thank me later.

    I remember when we all had titles next to our post count and usernames. There were no avitars back then. When you got to a certain post count, you got to make up your own "title."

    Darla was great. She had an all Von Schweikert HT setup. That was some good stuff.

    You were a lot nicer in 2014 when I had RTi10s, Tom.
    You'd have helped me stalk someone back then.

    She was a bit more than her roommate........

    IIRC, toward the end, they were quite estranged and stuck living in a house together in which they were upside down on a mortgage and could not sell.
