        Indeed, Cap'n. It's still way too noisy here. I still don't who many of these people are, what their knowledge level and experience is, and what their preferences are. And, believe me, I've tried.

        Has referral put on the table already? Gives some responsibility to a Friend who puts forward a new member candidate. Guys from Mongolia and Estonia would have probably been left out originally, though.

        Apple used to be okay. Thing is all the hipsters and climate awareness sheeple still fall for shiny Apple products with planned obsolescence awaiting them and fashion products that have a short life-span.

        It boggles my mind. "Look how shiny!" "Save the planet!"

        Yet another thing about Apple I didn't know: that they are supposed to score environment points?

        Plainly, though, there's a lot I don't know about Apple kit, because it doesn't interest me. How, for instance, does it score on repairability?

        He’s garnered quite a few votes of people that voted for his father, the fringes of society, and minorities/refugees that reap the benefits of the welfare/social assistance system. While Veterans that have served are left homeless and without support. He knows who to target for votes, that’s about all he’s good for.

        There's a reason I left Canada. I love Toronto, but in the job interviews there, I always got this sense of "oh, you little yellow person" while the elite ruled from their secret underground lair under the Toronto City Hall dome. Hard to explain, just a sense. I actually felt London was more of a meritocracy, like the US. Except with much less working and living space.

        I can one-up you. Semi-private (grey) organisations that operate in public functions but have no or little obligation to report to anyone. In NL alone these organisations are a source of many issues. At worst they receive partial funding from the tax-payer. They are fun...

        For the guy thats aligned a few carts and understands VTA, I don't see how the SOL is much different than many other high end TTs, except the price. I seem to remember the Linn Sondek being one that was a pain to dial in correctly. But I haven't set up a TT since the mid 90s when I set up a SOTA for a buddy.
