Was this, perhaps, the worst tv show of the 80s?

Did I watch that show? I think I may have. And why are you over 11,000 posts now? Showoff.

11000? That's the funny thing you appreciate tonight. Not funny at all. ;\)

I think it's no small wonder that I had never seen or heard of Small Wonder.

Now that the neighbors are back,
I have time to post this (true) story entitled
"As close to an Urban Legend as you can get."

This scene happened Yesterday (Saturday night). Someone from work was at my place to have a listen (guy looking for TV then some audio; not sure he came to the right place as his total budget is about 2000$ for everything). Anyhow.

He tells me he likes it dark for music. So I open the light in another (so we can still see something), but shut everything off in the living room.

As the music flows, he is impressed and everything, but that is not the point of the story. At some point he decides to compliment me on my power meters:

Him: "Great power meters you got there Master!" (I added the master, but I am certain he meant it that way).
Me: "What?"

He then proceeds to lower the volume and repeats the queston:
Him: "Great power meters you got there!"
Me: "What? No, I can hear you, I just don't undertand what you mean."

Him: "Sorry, I don't know all the tech jargon. I used to, but it's all so complicated now with new stuff and all."
Me: "Yeah, I know. The more they try to simplify, they get it worse..."

Him: "He he he. Nice meters, though"
Me: "What?"

Him: "The meters! Cool stuff!"

Me: "Yes, thanks! Er... what?"


Him: "Oh! Er... You know... The thing that goes up and down."
Me: "Huh?"

Him: "Aaahh! You know what I mean. The thing like in iTunes. You know. When you want to 'see' the music."
Me: "Visualizers?"

Him: "Maybe. Not sure. Is that what you called them?"
Me: "What who calls what?"

Him: "The thing! The thing that goes with the power."
Me: "..."

He then bends forward and points to the the "thing that goes up and down".
Him: "THAT! How to you call THAT in proper 'technical' terms?"
Me (very slowly): "An Ethernet switch..."

Him: "F**k!" (the guy is an IT technician and spends half his days with those devices; he just never realized that Ethernet is now an integral part of a sound system nowadays and I just happen to have TWO switches in my rack, both with 5 ports connected, which could be misinterpreted as stereo power level meters in the dark).

Just thought I would share this as we laughed a heck of a lot when it happened (and it was longer than this edited version! \:\) ).

At least now he'll know the next time he wants to compliment someone on their meters in the dark.
