Home again.  Didn't get the network/wi-fi finished at the school, have to go back again Thursday.

Sampson monitors are here, hopefully I can get them set up tomorrow and test them out on a mix I need to do.  They look good...

I can relate, Smurf.  Yesterday I made it 10-12 miles at 20mph before I turned around and came back.  Icy ruts pulling the car all over, and twice pulled me onto the center line with semi's coming the other way.  Scary...

Sampson monitors are supposed to be here UPS tomorrow sometime.  I have to go do a network job at a school, so I won't get to try them out till Wednesday.  But I have some mixing to do, so I'll let y'all know how they work...

Crazy snow storm today.  Going to have to plow, shovel, and scoop.  And probably again tomorrow...  >:(

I know, right?  I used to climb right in there.  Not anymore.

Two years ago I had to pull the exhaust manifold and some other things just to get to the back 3 plugs on one of the cars just to do a tuneup.

I hear ya Joom...our old 1/2 tons you could climb in beside the engine and almost close the hood,,, now you have to almost remove the motor to change a fan belt lol

I've got a pile of tools and testers that weren't even thought of 50 years ago.  Aside from basic drive train axle stuff, you have to start with an OBD tester just to know what might be going on.

I've always said I'd love to have a 1965 'anything' in good shape to fix up and drive...

Things have definitely changed a lot from back in the day of simple carburetors and distributors with points, Buster.  I could fix most things on the road with a few tools.  Not any more...

You guys are doing well. The 1st car I owned I took out the engine and gearbox, removed all the parts, had the engine o'hauled, put it all back in, re-timed it and drove it away. The new truck, I can't name a single thing under the hood.

And yeah, garage and pole barn, both full of motorcycles and dirt bikes, mowers, and a ton of other crap.  Been promising myself to clean them out for a long time and give myself a work area...

Same here, Red.  Back in the 70's before I got into computers I was a licensed mechanic, and I still refuse to pay somebody else to do what I can do.  Most of the time...

I'm with you Joom. I do all our car maintenance, have a 3 car garage and can't park a single car in it.  :/

Only -2 here today, not too cold.  But just finished 3 hours laying on ice doing a front end alignment on one of the cars.  That got cold.  Really need to clean out the garage...

Oh, don't say that, G.  I've been blaming bad monitors for bad sounding tunes...  ::)

OK so we didn't get a dog but if we had, we'd have called him Gopher.


Cottonwood sang and wrote the perfect lyrics. Thanks to Way2 for stepping up last minute with some vocals on it.


Gentlemen, it was a pleasure 8)

Thanks Joom.

I'll need to check it out properly when I've got my laptop out and eveything plugged in.

If you have any questions on anything, Kev, just holler...

You should be able to do it in your "Recording Devices", Kev.  Right click on your webcam mic and temporarily "Disable" it, and make sure your regular mic is enabled.  You get there by right-clicking on the speaker in your system tray, or by choosing "Sound" from your Control Panel.  If you're doing something that involves more than that, let me know...
Thanks Joom.

Still, I like the sound of this Streetjelly thing.  Looks like a decent site and I checked out some of the people streaming over the weekend.  A good mix!  :)

I couldn't find an option for changing the audio source in my webcam software.

Turn off webcam mic, and use your good one?

Sorry, Kev, I'm sure you knew that...  ;D

I couldn't find an option for changing the audio source in my webcam software.  However, I will give things a go Wednesday evening which is the next time I'm properly at home.  If I can use my condenser that'd be ideal.
