So here we go! I want to have one last meet to showcase Ken's amazing knowledge for all to see and especially want to dedicate this meet to all of the KICK ASS people from the AVS CRT Forum that I have met over the years.

It has been one hell of a ride and an AWESOME ride at that! I'm looking right now at Saturday, June 23rd so all who would like to come hang for a day to bring the family back together once again please feel free to announce your presence!

I'm a bit tired right now just returning from meeting all of the absolute fine folk out at the east coast Zilla meet and need sleep as I have to work in the morning but will post more soon!

Just requested the time off leading up to it, I'll try to get there a head of time to help you out if needed, I'm not missing this one bro. When your brain is in better shape let me know some of the hotels in the area.

I would also like to make this. Cliff, I must admit. As blatant and brash as you come across on the forum, I found you to be a rather pleasant person to be around. Much to my surprise. I actually enjoyed your company.

You're just a straight-up down to earth kind of guy. My kind of peeps..

It's all about the performance... Got Marquee!

As I said on some other thread, if you're holding a meet and there's 1/2 the turnout that there was this past weekend, I'm COMING EAST!

Let's see how many people will be there for this one..

I'll bring back bacon and some maple syrup. We'll pour it on the beavers and that will make for a real Canadian party!

Nah, no RS1. I just want to kind of go out with a big BANG!

After the meet, I will be settling down for a long time from both the forum and HT.

Curt, on a serious note if you come you've got to bring me some maple wine . I can't buy the darn stuff here in the U.S., and my stock ran out!

Someday maybe I'll actually WATCH my projector...

Cliff, I might be able to do it one more time. Be nice to see the difference tween the Zilla and the stack. If I can make it, I'll bring something good.

Absinthe is very good stuff. I've never tried it, but a morning radio show drank some while doing an interview. Funny as hell! I think it's available at www.thegreenfairy.com

edit: yep, that's it. Legal to boot, and that site is legit.

Interesting. Absinthe has been illegal in many countries for nearly a century -- it had the reputation that it could give great "visions" but it supposedly could also rot your brain, cause criminal behavior, etc. But apparently that was a "reefer madness"-type scaremongering. Now the ban has been lifted in most countries (except the US, where it's illegal to sell, but not to possess or consume??), and you can once again buy "real" Absinthe. Hmm, might have to give it a try...

Best of luck to you, but that stuff is seriously bad. I wouldn't touch absinthe with Dave's mouth

Someday maybe I'll actually WATCH my projector...

That's the reputation, but apparently it is not true. Maybe the reported ill effects came from impure alcohol or other adulterations, but basic absinthe itself is no more dangerous or psychotropic than any other similar alcoholic drink. A PubMed article referenced by the Wikipedia absinthe entry says "commercially manufactured absinthe appears to not cause detrimental health effects other than those encountered in common alcoholism."

So it shouldn't hurt you, but it won't produce any results other than a good rip-roaring drunk. Oh well.

Cliff,

If you have the room, I'd love to come and see Arli's handy work and see the difference from the blend last time. I'm amazed at the awesome picture quality on such a big screen.
