That's cool Joe. Can I trademark something like Humbly Bumbly?

Yea mun, no one even has it so it's all yours! Last I looked you can do it yourself for the fee of $325. All you have to do is fill out the form. Oh, and you will also need some proof of usage, something that shows the word used on your product or a label. Note that at 5 years and 10 years you will have do this all over again to renew it and prove it's still in use.

Be the sage.

I'm going to trade mark the name "Giggidy Giggidy" for my cables. Very stiff and great performance!

Slightly off topic but I thought I would post here rather than start a new thread.

With speaker wire, what is the preference to make up a thickness. Say I want to achieve a 14awg thickness, is it better to use more strands that are less in diameter or fewer strands that are thicker in diameter?

Quagmire would recommend one strand which is thicker

Very funny!

I was thinking that something a little more "limp" may work better!

And who are these "people" can you please elaborate.

Yes, but he can call himself a salesman!!

I Guess the cheap $1.00 solder isnt audio grade. I still won't be able to understand what Bono is saying regardless.
