I got the bump e-mail last night for this thread, but my fabulous cable modem service went out right afterward. Since I am no longer intoxicated, I shall refuse further comment.... for at least another hour or two

Yeah, it is a fun thread.....

If your display is out of calibration, just have a few beers. Once the beer googles are on, everything looks good!!!

I helped out a forum member who needed calibration of his plasma:

turns out he lives 2 minutes away from me and is a wine connoisseur with an impressive wine cellar: in return for my help, he turned me on to some excellent Merlot's and Cab's

Funny, though I have determined his display seems to require recalibration every week

please take the high road in every post:do not respond to or quote a problematic post: report it

hey mark! FDOFLMAO!

i'm thinking of introducing the wine & vine PQ enhancement system.

designed for one evenings use to gradually improve your PQ! after full installation, PQ improves until you pass out on the couch.

i assume you're available for a beta - test?

Thanks Kipp for making it fun again to visit this forum. We really needed some humor and that " don't worry be happy" type of vibe around here for a change( and you can tell that by the number of veiws to this thread).

I'm a bad mutha ( Shut yo mouth)...I'm just talking about HDTV

That is great to hear.... BTW, check out Black Opel cab/merlot blend. Very inexpensive. I highly recommend it. 1998 and 2000 were great years. The 2001 that still can be found is wonderful too.

Mark,
I am requesting that you perform many upon many tests just to confirm your results are accurate.

The Jones soda/vodka combo (while tasty) ended up being way too sugary for having skipped breakfast, so balancing it by scarfing down some leftover egg fried rice. Considering either Rolling Rock or Campari with soda water for the next beverage.

Grand Marnier Snifters in the HT.

The meal was incredible. The wines were superb. Everyone was satiated and inebriated when we settled into the HT for a few selected scenes. As good as all the precedants were, the highlight of the evening was the HT. The "OOOHHH's" and "AAAHHH's" at the PQ and image size exceeded the exclamations of excellence for the food and wine.

The friends are gone and I'm ready for bed. Yet, here I am, "Cruising the AVS Forum while intoxicated..."
