  1. Are you so... distracted... that you can't see the difference between liking/disliking a person, and calling out their rude and malicious behavior ? And there is a shitload of that around here, recent past and just now, to call out ! And after all, that kind of behavior is what this thread of yours is about.
  2. Hey, I was attacked, and had to defend my reputation against lies. What would you do ? And then you join in on the trashing I've never quite figured out where the hell you're coming from, but I never liked what you've had to say about this forum and its members. Happy to formally Ignore you now...
  3. Even the Grateful Dead stuff? C'mon. He voted down JERRY? Of course not, that's just Scott's usual paranoid exaggeration. Yes, I did Down vote a number of his posts, for (IMO) rude behavior and ridiculous statements, in 'open' threads. So what, I get my share too. Is he too much of a snowflake to take it ? And the 'stalking' thing is just a damn lie ! For well over a year, I have refused to click into any posts, in any thread started by wsgscot or esldude, much less post. I might see snippets in Unread Content, through. To be honest, I did break my rule a week back in one of his 'troll trap' threads to add a link to a DAC review by G. Graves, I'd just seen and thought was a very good candidate for testing the question the thread posed. I made no comments and he totally misunderstood it, since he wasn't really interested in the question, but how he could control the outcome of the thread. Then later in the thread, DJ Soundfuck, posted so big a boo-boo, I couldn't resist the temptation to call him on it. Yeah, my bad, I guess. I've meant to PM Scott explaining all this, but didn't get around to it til just now, when it became unavoidable. All just tawdry shit move on... P.S. he has done his share of stalking of me BTW, adding a bunch of distracta-posts to those of esldude's in one situation.
  4. Huh ? And here I thought you had me on 'Ignore' and thus it was a question for all. But since you ask, Yes, I do. Two of them involve you blasting me with 3 or 4 clearly OT replies, one right after I started a new thread expressly stating the type of content desired in it. Oh, sure, you can claim plausible deniability, but the pattern is clear, and you've been around this place long enough (but not quite longer then me) to develop a finely tuned ability to go right up to the line, without crossing it, to survive without being banned. And that point is known by more then just me.
  5. Anyone else notice a flurry of silly, OT, distracting, posts following one that might be a little unsettling to those 'Righteous' keepers of the objectivist, pseudo-scientific, flames ?
  6. Atoms vs bits, and Waaaaaaay Off Topic ! Please take it somewhere else.
  7. Exactly... What I see you saying here is that it is better for the audiophile (and more of a scientific attitude IMO) to be open minded about these reports. There is no need to judge them true/false immediately (or ever), and throw away good data. Collect all this data to get smarter. Some may lead to problems or improvements, some may just be due to wishful thinking, and most will probably remain undecided. Being able to hold contradictory information in ones head, is a skill well worth cultivating if one wants to be truly 'scientific'. This reminds me of subscribing to a small cheap weekly magazine called "Science News" a couple of decades back. It had maybe a dozen pages filled with small articles (some just paragraphs). The articles were just little reports of this study, or that study, and what they might imply in their particular field. Just data really, a digestible stream of it, week by week. The wonder of it was that as time passed, I could see different studies of the same/similar thing with differing results, none definitive, but together they painted a picture of the evolving nature of scientific thought, based on multiple views of all kinds of evidence, Throwing away any evidence, 'subjective' or not, is foolish and clearly unscientific !
  8. Could you just leave it playing at a very low level ? (or muted, depending on where you control volume) At least temporarily, until you have a fix, to cut the hassle. I usually leave my system running 24/7 with a streaming www radio station. More for my convenience, but there are reports of better SQ with a continuously playing system.
  9. I knew there was something about you that I liked ! Great quote I remember that situation playing out on these pages years ago. and it revolved around a posted picture of him. I can't say I know everything about it, but my strong take-away from back then is he descended into an almost pathological fit of paranoia (I was shocked), talking all kinds of wild 'what-if's', and refusing to let it go, which is probably why that myth still hangs around
  10. Fair enough, but I was trying to make a point. And since you bring it up, the CA Terms of Service IS your concern, IIRC

    Audirvana Plus 2.6

    Here are some A+ questions, some simple, some not, I’d like to get cleared up before making some changes. I have to ask some as I can’t recall exactly from all the past posts I may, or may not, have seen And some issues/problems that may have an answer, or not ? Questions: 1) Does A+ 3.x still support iTunes integration ? 2) Does any v2.x version have the ‘dial home for a license check’ functionality that caused a lot of upset a while back ? 3) Does the intermittent dropout problem get solved, or improved, between (my current) v2.5.4 and the ‘latest’ v2.6.8 ? Problems: 4) I do not have the A+ preference setting ‘iTunes Play Position Control’ disabled, yet I can’t move the play position from within iTunes, or in the A+ UI, out of the loaded part of the memory load bar, which may sound reasonable, except that this worked just fine in A+ 1.5, and I made extensive use of it for track ratings during my new music check-in process. And why have a Preferences setting if it’s ignored ? 5) My iTunes window shrinks to one half size if it’s displaying when the monitor (HDTV) is turned off, then back on (which I usually do once or twice a day). A real PITA ! I can Quit A+, and it still occurs. But then, the problem did start about the time I upgraded from v1.5 to v2.5, and it is still installed, even if not running. Could it have to do with an iTunes optimization preference setting ? (see signature for s/w versions…) TIA !
