        VentMode: fucking idiots everywhere. Do my bi-weekly Costco run; they're out of TP and goddamned hand soap. How much handsoap can you possibly use in a month? 2 months? 3 months? Goddamned "low information" idiots.

      SA2X installed, to split XLR between XLR for the Af and Isomax for the T4. Hopefully nervosa stays dead for a while.

        Last week the ambassador complained that the Chinese Community in Milan is viewed badly by the locals.

        But when they had a 48hr shootout in the streets they wanted us to just let it ride.

        The British Guardian newspaper's restaurant critic, this week, is begging people to go to their local Chinese restaurants again. Business has fallen through the floor, because, hey, Chinese people are dangerous. British people are stupid. And yes, I am one.

        @Thad E Ginathom the thing is, it's probably Chinese people who are staying away from the restaurants. Listening to my family back in Australia, the Chinese communities are freaking out way more than anyone else (maybe memories of SARS), avoiding their usual social and retail areas.

        Oh the XLR out sounds better.

        Its not world changing but it is noticeable, as soon as Bifrost 2 freed up the trafos I briefly compared SE to converted XLR and was sold.

        I'm just dragging my feet because its yet more expense, I'm not much of a gear cycler and I'd like to be done with the core setup.

        Yep xlrs and trannies into a lyr3 with clear was like i got a much higher tier amp. But my speakers have prio cause they still sound much better. For a moment i was considering a T4 but i guess a switch box is a better and cost effective solution. But as you said to keep poring money into this hobby can get tiring, something to be said for just enjoying music and forgetting about gear.

        In Hawaii we call those Okinawan sweet potatoes. Taro is used in the making of poi.

        Besides taro, might be ube? It's a root crop people hereabouts often use in sweet desserts.

        Alternatively there actually are purple potatoes, the change in pigment owing to high concentrations of anthocyanin (googled it, idk about crops). Not sure if these'd be any sweeter than regular taters though.

        If you didn't keep so many receipts in there, it wouldn't be so ugly. Consider a slimmer, sleeker option and folks wouldn't hate it so much.

        19Mbps to 67Mpbs. Apparently the local cabs really don't like Broadcom VDSL modems.
