    And that whole Keynesian thing....
    Incur debt (which you mentioned)
    Print more money
    Raise taxes

    Wait, that only works in the unreal world of gubment side economics.

    *For individuals, one is unwise and others the gubment frowns on when someone else gets in on their action.

    I’m hoping that’s it, but I hate working on PCBs.
    I won’t say it’s not out there, but a few months ago I spent an hour scouring the net and didn’t find one, with a possible exception of someone charging for them. I’m not opposed to paying, just decided I didn’t want to do the work myself. Assuming they even had it.

  7. So the video finally came out from the jazz workshop I did in August. My drummer friend Paul Mackisoc had called me up and said "We should go jam for a week!"
    My song choice was Four on Six (starts about 6:40)

    Thunderbird Thursday already?! :jawdrop:



    I guess this week, it'll be the last bass standing (or will be the last one, once the others are sold :facepalm: ):

  11. Well over 20 years ago, lightning struck the utility pole at the corner of my property and it wiped the eproms and singed the circuit boards in a bunch of electronics in our home. Cordless phones, vcr's and most notably, the garage door opener. It's weird that it only damaged certain things and left other electronics alone.

    It was dark out and I was standing in our unlit bedroom when the strike occurred. The crack was so loud that I'm sure I came off the ground about 2 feet and the entire room lit up in the bright whiteness of 5,000 watts of halogen lighting. So glad it wasn't a direct hit to the house.

    Were you all in the house when it happened, Miles?
     
  12. Can't hit a like on that post... sorry to hear it and hope you get through whatever you're dealing with without needing to unload your TBirds. :(

    I hope things straighten out and in the future other birds find their way to you.

  17. Thanks Mike! I thought the room would be boomy, being a barn. It was a really nice place to spend a week playing.
     
  18. Thanks Donny! It’s got a voice for sure. Would you say it sounds like the real thing?

    Sounds better than a Ric! If my Ric sounded like that, I would have kept it! What strings were you using? I'd like to go back and listen again with earbuds it sounded so good. But tell those cats in the front to cool it and let the bass have more space!:D
