        You mean on SBAF? Or other websites? Because I have my ad blockers disabled on SBAF and don't see any. Could be a browser hijack on your end if so.

        Got my current job thru LinkedIn (5.5 yrs ago now). Probably depends on your field: in geosciences, organizations with vacancies advertise there and recruiters use it. A lot of noise these days though - be discerning about accepting connection requests.

        I've been signed up for maybe 20 years and not received a lot of shit, but do get a few odd requests to link. Then again, I have pretty much had a non profile since retired. Oh and I locked down privacy stuff so only connections can email. I guess I would be opening the floodgates if un-privatizing

        So tired this morning from staying up past 2 a.m. (NY time). Great game. I am partial but USA really deserved this one. US had Canada on their heels most of third period and OT but just couldn't get past Canada's goalie (who was amazing). I hate shootouts but glad we won.

      Need better free VST EQ for Foobar- TDR Nova is clipping with very mild bass shelf
      1. Taverius
        Taverius
        Sounds like you want an EQ that automatically drops input volume to create headroom, but I'm pretty sure all the good ones expect you to set headroom manually? Atomicbob's crossover stack starts with a volume reduction for that exact reason.

      If most adult male ears are 65mm+ top to bottom, why are most over ear headphones smaller?

        I feel extremely lucky because my 2 favourite headphones, the HD650 (70mm) and the SR-007 (66mm height in the EP-007 pads) are a bit taller and wider than my ears (65mm) :D

        I used to read the same reviews over and over on a piece of gear an still not understood what it sounded like. Then I would finally get or hear this gear, then a few days go back those same reviews and think, "Exactly!"
