  1. the only thing missing is a sign:
  2. Do you have a kill switch on the car? If they can't break in they can alternatively steal the vehicle and drive it someplace and dismantle the cage and the car.
  3. this quoted scenario is playing out a lot here in nyc and the jersey suburbs. very high and in some cases very unequal property taxes. and tough commutes even if you do live in one of the four outer boroughs. quality of life and quality of family life are supremely important issues that are linked directly to dual income earners with children. is there ever a do-able ideal situation or is always bite the bullet and make do?? as far as making do is concerned i would recommend setting time aside--weekly--to calmly and rationally discuss finances--avoiding flashpoint acrimony is key. the most common arguments between spouses are about money. having a long and short term game plan that both camps are in agreement with and keeping up to date with, helps avoid the flashpoint scenario that happens in those instances when it became necessary to discuss an issue. discussing the money thing makes dealing with it routine, just another thing to do and makes joint decisions less stressful. not easier, sometimes, just less stressful.
  4. Dear Diary: I sure hope MozeGear releases a battery version of the MiniPapi soon.
  5. and if it ain't a brick don't break it. these machines are truly classics. there is always work for the recorders to do. seems like just yesterday when they first hit the market. my oh my how time flies when you're getting old.
  6. Do you keep them (or something similar) at hand in your kit or generally, always within reach? Wear them at concerts regardless of sticking out in a crowd?
  7. a small rubber band that loops around both knobs?? it might be helpful to get a tone generator that has an output that is a reliable amount of db to test the input of each unit and see how innacurate, or not, the meters are. i have been told that any xlr split lowers db by -6, generally. the output of the audioroot should be delivering solid line level but perhaps the 5 pin out is chopping off -6 or more. a member who is more knowledgeable should jump in and clarify. what exactly is generating the rest of the difference can be sorted out one way or another. because of instances like this i was, at one point, seriously considering buying an RDL PT-AMG2: http://www.rdlnet.com/product.php?page=1 for instances such as this but i never did. now i want one again just to play around with.
  8. VER

    the rental prices are subsidized and/or offset by the other business they do. if you get requests via email to do work with any rental house's equipment (other than extra equipment you are budgeting and billing for) that you send a well prepared response that you can copy and paste into any email reply (strong bullet points) that states the very good reasons you will only work with your own equipment. it will save time/money rather than getting into a back and forth about it. if they want to argue about it say goodbye to them. and learn to live without them and their jobs.
  9. hello mfrs if there is rado approved radomax, radomad or a radomadmax on the horizon sign me up for one. i enjoy reading his opinions on design and functionality of equipment.

  11. nobody has changed the basic structure of the government since the u.s. constitution was ratified in 1788. there seems to be no conspiracy at hand in this election. maybe the best explanation of what occurred in this election is here: http://www.edisonresearch.com/hidden-group-won-election-trump-exit-poll-analysis-edison-research/
  12. you are incorrect about the usa being a democracy. the usa is a federal republic and a representative democracy. a democracy and a representative democracy are not the same thing.
  13. Lol we needed The Senator to instigate, moderate and antagonize on this thread.
  14. I don't know about the concrete mob, but the state and the city do purchase a lot of concrete for road and sidewalk rebuilding.
