XenForo does not allow me to edit posts larger than a paragraph on mobile. This is why I rarely update loaner positions on original posts. Sep 22, 2018 at 5:21 AM

        A paragraph is an arbitrary length, but loaner posts always cause this.

        This has had me screaming bloody murder. But I just discovered that it is bound to the cursor, not the last paragraph. So editing text should be doable, if cumbersome, but using the toolbar won’t be for anything too far down.

        It’s about the most useful my iphone’s 3D touch has been..

        Using the dumb editor seems to negate the issue, too.

        I heard this happened at Taco Bell. The baby was first said to be almost here 3 years ago, then announced to be arriving 11 months ago, should be here by late October, is the latest report.

        I'd like to make my side chick pregnant, but I flew to China to source the sperm and, after extended foreplay, everything went wrong at the last minute. Might come in October.

      My Mimby has started making a bad wind chime sounding distortion in left channel. Other DACs do not. Suggestions?

        @Mystic @atomicbob Thanks. Rebooting helps significantly. The distortion goes away completely, but a lesser version comes back after a bit occasionally. The lesser version (still just the left channel) will go away when I cycle the source button, but the wind chime distortion will not. Perhaps it's time to email @schiit.

        Cool! I just picked up the DigiOne player myself a few weeks ago and am very impressed with its sound. Also impressed how easy it is to install the Roon Bridge and get that working seamlessly with Roon (first time trying Roon myself).

        Dr. John Young presented at our AES section a few years back. Many of our members utilized his services until he moved to Western Washington University where he teaches audiology. Anyone trained by him might be very good.

      LF Thunderbolt 3 dock with >= 130W of power delivery through TB3 port. Any suggestions?
      1. Torq
        Torq
        Pretty sure that TB3 *ports* are limited to 100 W of power delivery. Docks can supply more than that for graphics cards, etc, but not over the cable.

        Hmm. The Dell TB16-240W quotes up to 130w over their cable for their laptops. Other TB/ USB devices are stated at 60w. Was wondering if there were any others up there. I’ll probably just do a two cable solution if I run into issues.
        Jul 6, 2018
      3. Torq

        That’s because Dell are leveraging the “vendor specific alternate power modes” part of the USB-C PD spec (rather than it being something Thunderbolt 3 specific). That 130w is only available using a specific cable and into devices that specifically support Dell’s alternate power mode (likely just a subset of their own laptops).

        Three questions to ask about any political candidate: 1) Is X competent? = Can X do the job well? 2) Can X win? 3) Is X ethical? I seldom get to asking whether the person agrees with me.

        There are some impressive technicalities, but the FR is screwed. Very metallic harmonics on vocals. Recessed fundamentals on vocals. Awkwardly boosted bass, nice impact, but not very linear not cohesive.

        How are the ergonomics? I haven’t tried anything from 64 Audio, but next to the currrent gen universal ‘CIEMs’ like PP8, the shells look whack.

        I thought the trios were better balanced than the fourte, but something about the sound was too diffuse and not focused enough. I don't know about technicalities but i have a feeling the pp8 will come out ahead.
