If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

-----Now we are talking real audio, transistors and ditital just can not reproduce piano and pipe organs as well as tubes. I do like that they are using class A biasing on the finals you get a much cleaner sound with no crossover distortion, just that class A is so limited in its output power. Every thing in life is a trade off.

Vacume tubes made computers then they switched to solid state transisters. Then the Sys Admin died ....... or did she?

I still remember waiting for those things to warm up, so I could listen to our stereo. No I am not an old guy, just grew up poor.

MoMan is right. I especially love true tube guitar amplifiers. And old Fender combo amp from the 60's has the best tone in the world.

I think she is still alive, and is teaming up with Martha Stewart and they are going to turn to good and at the last second come and save the geeks from the Prarie Dogs with their pack of Black footed Ferret's

Sounds good to me, so hurry up Nitrozac and Snaggy, when is the next AY2K? [Roll Eyes]

Actually, this sounds just like an AY2K plotline. [Eek!]

Sorry, I just need to point out one of my mistakes. It's not a "Pack" of Ferrets it's a business of ferrets.

Sorry for any confusion about this.
