Re: Kim, how's the weather in Perth?

Oh man, I've been thinking of this poor girl all day! Her wages at the TV station, doing the weather report, must be awful - I noticed her underwear has many holes.

Perhaps we should pass the hat to purchase some new underwear for the poor lass.

Re: Kim, how's the weather in Perth?

Oh, I didn't know the full story.

When the Tsun shines, the heat index goes up. Way up.

Thanks for that, Kim. Think I'll go whittle a guitar neck.

Tasmanian bushfires

I saw the horrific images of the Tasmanian bushfire and just wanted to express my hope that somehow it comes under control before more damage is done or lives lost.

Re: Designing an Experimental Guitar

... for speakers without a port, you need drivers with much softer cones, or that spongy bit around the edge of the speaker cone can be softer and allow greater "throw" because the trapped air inside the enclosure stiffens it up by adding resistance to movement of the cone as a whole. It kinda boun...

If the depth of the pool is the same all over, it will not sound very good, as this will induce a standing wave.
