1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    It's big but not giant. Size approx. XL. I'm 6' 1", 185# and it fits me in the sleeves, and is about 7" from the floor when I wear it so it's relatively long. Shoulders are a tad big on me, but not like it's a fitted garment. Came from the rich people estate sale and has some bits of damage but I didn't care. No tags anywhere, I'd assume silk and probably MTO given the other bespoke stuff they had. Available if anyone's gotta have it.

    Discount day! Not 10% of retail but pretty close after you consider how low the Canadian dollar is compared to USD. I had a $1500 car repair bill yesterday, so I can't offer straight proxy on these, but if any thread regulars are interested PM and we can work something out.

    WTF. I just moved my vintage Kenwood receiver from one room to another, hooked up the speakers & turntable and now have a loud hum outta one channel. I guess I hosed that receiver. I even tried fixing it (e.g.: I smacked it). So in the last week or two - turntable hosed, receiver hosed, vinyl hosed.

    That chair lift reminds of that scene from the movie Gremlins.

    I've been waiting for some big hits from year-end donations, but it's been really really dry around here. I've found some fun, quirky things and lots of fodder (won't bore you with the latter). My fave things from the past week...

    Vintage Velva-Sheen. So weird. I love it.

    Vintage Banana Republic bomber. Glorious patina.

    Complete in box. Totally AWESOME. Blast from my past and my 4 year old enjoys playing it.

    Waiting for someone to tell you how you won't ever get $200 for a Patagonia fleece now.

    Wait what?! Haha nice! All this time I thought Fueco was smoking ditch weed - no idea Patagonia could do that well. Nice flip!

    Could be a connection issue. Whenever I move AV components around, something always gets fucked up. It's best to completely rewire everything considering how cheap speaker wire is.

    Though if it's a loud hum, it's probably something inside going bad. I usually get soft hums or pops and cracks when it's a minor fixable issue.

    Is it a plug with a ground? Try setting it up where it was. There's a chance there's noise being introduced from that particular outlet.

    ^^^ my first thought as well. dirty power. in certain rooms my own amp acts up.

    if the plug doesn't have a third prong you could try simply flipping it 180 and re-plugging it in as well.

    Thanks gents...I always properly ground before turning anything on...and if a hum I check the ground. Nope - loud obnoxious hum like one of the pots has gone bad. Got it at GW so no harm no foul, and have a few other receivers on hand. Sell for "parts/repair" most likely. But that silver face with VU meter was nice to look at. Oh well....

    Potato pic optical illusion. Looks like a large potato in the bag to me (or a rock), but it's just the bag, which is obvious at higher magnification.
