Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

I had the pleasure of working with Vint Cerf, this morning. Of all the celebrities, dignitaries, and generally famous people I get to meet in my job, there are usually, very few that can make me feel as uneducated as I felt this morning. He's a very nice guy, though, and a joy to watch engage a larg...

Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

Been looking at photos of the Boston area during yesterday's storm . A few photos in there of cars that people were attempting to drive through flooded streets and had to abandon. How stubborn or stupid do you need to be to think that your Dodge Challenger can handle 3 ft of water? There should be ...

I'd be nearly on my 16th, but I did not join the forums until 2006 if I recall. I could look it up... but I'm too old and lazy.

Re: My home theater is sounding weird

Almost certainly got switched in to one of the various large hall / cinema modes that receivers have. I wish they'd just stop adding those "features". They *never* sound good in any context. :o "I want my receiver to make it sound like we're watching this movie in a place that's acou...

Re: My home theater is sounding weird

My recommendations: If caused by Window, try adding some curtains or blinds. Thick curtains will work better. Adjust the angle of speakers now that you have a different acoustic footprint. On the Receiver side, as others have stated, you may want to check the sound mode. Many effects processing mode...

Jeez, what a process!

Can I mention here, just how much I despise Photobucket?

All of the pictures are restored and hosted through Flickr, for now. Hopefully, I won't run into the same bandwidth issues through Flickr.

1968 Mustang, J-code, with a front bench seat. Only 17 ever built. She's my pride and joy, but I may have to sell her soon, given my current housing dilemma.
