Welcome.

You should be fine if you want to drop on by. The last few times a few of us were up till past midnight. Most started leaving around 9-10pm. Looking forward to meeting to meeting you and any new comers.

Agreed! Would love to hear/see how your theater is now!

No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

Marc, Please move me up your list to "Attendies" Note: Ivan refers to me as "Classic Carl" (Perhaps because I have been around for 3/4 of a Century - perhaps because I got on board before the other Carl?

I'm guilty of starting those nicknames, using Coca-Cola nomenclature to separate the two Carls: New Carl and Classic Carl. Not age related, just who was with our group first.

Marc, if you have room for one more, I'd like to attend.

Yeah, I remember that Sanjay. Almost as good a memory is you coming to the Halloween GTG dressed as Robin. Ever since then, any time I see a Batman movie, etc., I can't help thinking how much better it would be had they included you in your Robin costume along with whomever was playing Batman. I honestly believe that you would have been considered Oscar or Emmy material had you been included in the movie, etc. Your were that GOOD!

I cannot make the October 1 meet for the best possible excuse - spending my wedding anniversary at the Mission Inn in Riverside.

But I will be there on the 28th! Is that going to be a costume party?

I have been dialing everything in for the GTG and then…

We were forced to evacuate this afternoon. It went from the fire being nowhere near us to almost on top of us in 40 mins. We were barely able to grab our animals (3 cats & 1 large dog) before the smoke got too thick to breathe comfortably. (No, I didn't save the Lyngdorf!)

The 11:00 news said no homes were lost so I'm hoping we can proceed Oct. 1. The view just may be a little charred.

Just to jog your memory, later that year you came to another one of our meets at the testing lab for Sound & Vision magazine. You mentioned that you were bringing a friend (happy surprise for us that your friend turned out to be video guru Joe Kane, who gave us a sneak peak at some of the test material in his upcoming Blu-ray).

Marc, I hope all is well with you and your family.

I could still see the fire burning on the other side of the 91 on my way to work this morning. Eastbound 91 looked like a parking lot.
