That makes perfect sense and i will be the first to admit that I didn't read much of the rules in order to keep my welcome. I used to post a lot on Off Topic threads on the taco, but got tired of the endless bickering, the hate of people because they had Faith and all the other trouble that went on at the taco stand. A lot of hate goes a long way.
Can't say I didn't contribute at first, but I quickly learned that only certain topics interested me, history of climbing, books and photographs, both the bird and dog thread and a lot of the humor. I miss a lot of the personalities and at the same time don't care to remember many of them. I am sure I was looked at in the same light.
You have started something here that I didn't think was possible, I hope many people will discover this site and/or lurk and post. I see Mastadon joined. I know he won't speak unless he has something worth sharing.
I will bide my time and maybe grow up to be like my friend Zb and post as often as i want. He is quite the character. I only understand about a third of his diatribes, (I think he likes it that way) and other times I seem to read between the lines like a gypsy woman, the same one that talked to Muddy Waters.
I still burn cd's but I don't understand a ¼ of the technical jargin used. I used to be right in the middle somewhere. The burner you wrote about, will it work on Windows? Is it Free? I can't afford to switch back to vinyl, I still have two functional multi disc players, but I am lazy and usually just put the disc in a DVD player. I miss the clarity of vinyl and analog. My stereo is all analog, so I can get some clarity of sound. (Zb, I have a boom box I would be glad to ship you). It even has a cassette player, but that need a little work)
Thanks for explaining the lock-down.
ZB, if you read this you better cast a vote for me and thanks for posting Emma's picture. My sister painted it for me.
