“Forget this world and all its troubles and if possible its multitudinous Charlatans–everything in short but the Enchantress of Numbers.”
― Charles Babbage
“If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery–isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.”
— Charles Bukowski (Factotum)
The grand experiment of combining the two side-by-side stereo systems continues. Still waiting on the second Schiit amplifier. The initial setup with the new-to-the-house Yamaha receiver with pre-outs is functional. Now pulling wires for extending a second zone for the office basketball TV (Go Lakers!). Once the second amplifier shows up we can shorten the wires and encapsulate them.
The new todo list is as follows:
Install new dishwasherDone
- new Guibo bush on the 128
- new center bearing support on the 128
- implement new home-theater amp to eliminate double stereo
- Trip to IKEA
Deport virtulized XP machine from my world.First test tomorrow
- Implement UnRAID and Plex all the things.
I designed a simple friction fit clamp to serve the purpose of holding two pair of Ed’s Horns together and to bolt the Heil AMT-1 tweeter.
