Jack, Excellent summary ... and VERY funny curse. And I REALLY would love to do a DBT between a pair of Paradigm Studio 60's/100 V.3, Axiom M-80's, and the RS-1K's (sans powered woofer, so really 850's) ... What I am hearing from the M22-ti's tells me this contest would be GOOD.

Amie ? You here ? ...

Yes, James, I'm ashamed to say I get carried away when it comes to this person. He can be found on many forums, under different names. He has been banned at most of them, only to return with a new pseudonym, but unfortunately with the same posting style. It is suspected that he is connected to the retail end of the audio business. Regardless, it is known he will relentlessly attack any, and all, who champion internet only companies (IOC), like Axiom. And when you defend one, he accuses YOU of (pardon my French, but I'm quoting) "pimping" for IOCs. He has little interest in logic, reason, accuracy or courtesy. He's one of those guys who will make no sense, and then unilaterally declare himself the winner of the argument. He likes to describe himself, when feeling challenged, as "your worse nightmare." He is, far and away, the most offensive poster I've ever come across, but the only "nightmare" is in his own mind.

My all time favorite, and the first of several bannings he received on HTF, stemmed from a claim about SVS. He supposedly had owned a PC-Ultra which he said he purchased used. The problem was, his "used PC-Ultra", according to him, was purchased about one full month BEFORE SVS actually started selling NEW PC-Ultras...

I have no doubt. I was not trying to complain in anyway. You are always such a gentleman that for someone to get you to the point that you react that way, well he must really go far beyond the realm of super-duper-mondo-prince. And by prince I really mean pr1ck.

Wow, I do the good thing and take a day off (and will over the week-end as well) to help a friend paint his freshly dry-walled, under construction home on Seneca Lake (one of the Finger Lakes) and what am I greeted with - FU6. That's just not right.

If anything, Jack's description was too charitable. This guy is a serious head case. All that is BAD about Al Gore's interenet.

In reply to:

Do you think Edward Weston found this pepper in Henry Moore's garden?? Ha, ha.




Interesting that you would mention Henry Moore, and then the next picture posted would be very Georgia O'Keefe inspired. Taking an art class in high school I sculpted a piece that was inspired by them both. I personally really like the end result I came up with, but most of my friends just look at it and ask, "what the hell is that?"

(btw...did anyone else get that Henry Moore reference?)

...and yes...that's one sexy bell pepper.

No...there's nothing dirty about it. It's really beautiful. Ms. O'Keefe had to put up with all that "dirty" talk as well. You're in good company.

The only inspiration behind it, was the fact that all we had in the studio was 2 week old flowers. I had to shoot them really tight to avoid the brown spots.
Its 1 in a series of 12 that I shot for my GFs birthday gift, when I was too broke to buy the real thing.

1/24th octave and 1/3rd octave in room pink noise graphs have been posted for the VP-150 on AVS. These graphs were taken at 60 degrees off axis ....
