Add the pictures to the list.
Maybe a historical timeline of the evolution process will eventually develop.

Re: United said he could change the flight back to 8:25 AM for only $1019 US.
One of my business associates went through a similar problem with United just recently. Thinking he could get an earlier flight home he drove from Milwaukee to Chicago. They charged him an extra $375 because he didn't fly the whole route (Milwaukee/Chicago/Vancouver). He ended up leaving Chicago on the same late flight. Look's like all these airlines in bankruptcy protection are trying to recoup their losses?

Well, if anyone else honors us with a visit, the staff has requested that you have Bridgman drive you up. His wonderful dogs made our Friday even more fun!

Chess, Tharkun was commenting that your photo essay was the most definitive. He knew his way around even though it was his first time there!

It was so fun having Tharkun and Bridgman check out our chamber, take part in experiments, do blind listening, and make passionate cases for new products. We loved the visit! Real80sMan was able to join us for half the day too, which was great fun. Always neat to put faces to the names.

Next up is Toronto Hi-Fi to see the chamber, but then we're open! Come by sled!

With all the "room" isues I'm having, I'd like to make the trip just to hear the speakers in an anechoic chamber!

I haven't had time to post a proper report, but I have to thank Amie, Ian, Tom and the rest of the Axiom crew for their wonderful hospitality. It was a very informative *and* a very enjoyable day.

Listening tests are hard. I have no idea why people volunteer for them

My dogs and I will be forever grateful for allowing them to spend the evening curled up in the back of Amie's Jeep with the engine running and the heater on high, nice and warm on a really cold night, while we were dining in the restaurant.

The dogs spent most of the day in Axiom's front office. Every few minutes you would hear the door open, followed by ferocious barking and growling, followed by a loud "awww" and the sound of the new arrival talking baby talk to the dogs. I don't even want to THINK about what the day cost Axiom in terms of lost productivity. The dogs pretty much shut down the front office and probably didn't help customer support levels either

Wow... I think of crime as being pretty low in NH, but I couldn't imagine leaving my engine running while in a restaurant.

Oh, wait. I just remembered that one of your dogs looked positively evil... I'm sure no one went near the Jeep!

You and Dennis have to report when you can!

It's a REALLY nice area, although I agree every locale has its share of lowlifes. I can't think of a nicer place to live or to run a business.

Arrived back home about midnight last night, so was a bit late this morning in getting to the puter. But then I had a problem when I connected the camera to the puter to upload pictures. Seems I just had some of the USB ports on the MB die. Just know getting it working again now.
I had good intentions of taking lots of pics, but since I had left the camera and bateries in Johns jeep for hours, when I took it into the Axiom office it did not want to work. Since John and I were kept very busy with the tour, some testing, and talking about many things, the camera was never checked again. So after being at Axiom for about 12 hours, I managed to leave without one picture.
Now this could have been some new electronic deveice that had been installed at the Axiom door, disabling all cameras, or could be just the California camera did not like the cold.....not sure which.
I will need some time to compose a report of the day at Axiom, but wish to thank Amie for arranging such an interesting and entertaing day for John and I. Other than being to short of a visit, it was more than worth the travel to meet every one at Axiom, and spend time with the people I had come to know so well over the puter and phone.
Ian and Amie are so good at making one feel like part of the family, that once there one does not want to leave. I want to thank all at Axiom, and John as well for giving me shelter and his company. This was a great trip and wouldl like to return again, great people, great food, and more fun than I have had in a long time.

You know, it didn't even cross my mind until you brought it up here? Wow, I am bushed!

Dennis, you really should come and stay longer. I know there were a bunch of rooms you wanted to spend a longer time in - the machine shop . . . the woodshop . . . learning to program CNC code to speed your reno along . . .
