Here's what I've learned so far from this thread:

(1) Apple sucks, or perhaps not.
(2) Audioholics.com sucks, or perhaps not.
(3) Bose sucks.
(4) I may or may not use the term "mundane" incorrectly.

Oh, cool, I've learned that I can put parentheses on both sides of the numbers in a list.

Yup, sounds like an Axiom forum thread-jack to me. ;\)

And to think the whole point was the EP800.

Perhaps you misunderstood my context but I believe I used the word correctly Cam as I consider internet surfing, emailing etc . . . as “practical” and “ordinary” as opposed to the computer uses being discussed by audiosavant and the corresponding advantages of using Apple/Mac over a budget PC.

Cam when I use the word “mundane” the context is almost always the same as when we used it in the SCA. To describe the “real” or as we would say “mundane” world in contrast to the fantasy world of knights in armour. While one could also construe that to mean the “boring” world that would be understanding our use of the word in that context incorrectly.

Or you can just read my short response. Bite Me! ;\) ;\)



Deanster, I knew the context in which you were using it, I just didn't know if you knew the "proper" meaning.

late 15c., from M.Fr. mondain (12c.), from L. mundanus "belonging to the world" (as distinct from the Church), from mundus "universe, world," lit. "clean, elegant"; used as a transl. of Gk. khosmos (see cosmos) in its Pythagorean sense of "the physical universe" (the original sense of the Gk. word was "orderly arrangement"). L. mundus also was used of a woman's "ornaments, dress," and is related to the adj. mundus "clean, elegant" (used of women's dress, etc.). Related: Mundanity.

Etymology

Or you can take my short response- me crashing into your shins with my wheelchair \:D \:D \:D ;\)

You know Cam the one that really use to piss me off was the feminists at UW Madison saying “herstory” instead of “history” because they thought it was a contraction of “his” and “story.” I call people like that educated idiots.

History

P.S. It’s about time for Mark to show up. I think he’s slacking today. ;\)

I've had at least one feminist as a caregiver, who was quite staunch and had rather annoying viewpoints. She snapped at me one day when I said hysterics, referring to elation.

I have a feminist working for me now, and have read a couple articles that she has linked to on her facebook wall. One of them was the most hypocritical, counterproductive thing I have read.

Needless to say, I'm not a huge fan of feminism, but I do love the EP800.

But not as much as you love the Paradigm Signature SUB 25. \:\) Just like a man to juggle multiple love interests.

Isn't he always?

You know what. I had a dream the other night that I was at an electronics show, and met Mark at the Axiom booth. Now that's a random dream!
