  1. There're too many pictures of Nagras in this video not to have this on Nagra Stories. I'll bet there is a good story behind everyone of these scenes. I'd like to know what Goldie Hawn was smiling about? At some point I bookmarked this and came across the bookmark last night. I'm not sure where I got this from. But its a pretty interesting site. http://jwsound.weebly.com/cas-slideshow.html
  2. Thank you James Bull, for taking the time to give my Post Index idea some thought and for you to come up with some workable ideas. With your suggestions today in a earlier pvt message I was able to set up my Quick Post Index on page one of this thread. Thanks to you, now, at any time, from any page, whether signed in or not, I can click the back arrow and access the clickable index on page one. The back arrow looks like this << It's in the page number section at the top and bottom of every page and looks like this << PREV 17 18 19 20 Hit the back arrow and it brings you to the index. From there, one click in the index brings you right to the post you wanted to see again. Example: Where are the pictures to the Nagra SN copy? Click the Back arrow, Click The Nagra SN (Copy) in the index. It works well on a laptop or desktop, but for a cell phone It gets a little condensed and jumbled because I don’t have it in a single list or column, but it still works.
  3. Thats amazing James, I never thought you could dial in the exact post like that. Now I wonder, could there be a way to put certain separate post links under one Index in the signature?
  4. Thanks David, I didn't know about that feature. You're right all my posts are right there where you said they would be. The problem is my posts are usually only in my thread. As you can see by this sample below, It would be much harder for me to go thru 8 pages worth of posts without any pictures to go by, all posts below have the same title and I would have to start reading each one to find what its about. Now if I posted in many different threads as most of you do, It would be definitely easier searching the way you just said because you would look for the title of the thread. But in my sample below they all have the same title almost all 8 pages- Nagra Stories - so I have to read past the title on each one. For remembering when I posted about a certain recorder, forget that, its all a blur to me, If you knew how many times I searched up and down the pages of my thread looking for something. It's just like looking for a tool or something around the house. You think you just saw it but can't find it anywhere. You think you just posted it but it ends up not being where you thought it was. That is why I made the list. Try searching for this without looking at my list The Fake Nagra SN post, (not my post) lets take a look at that SN copy again. That was not that long ago, what page should you click on to see the pictures again? Use my list its very simple you get what you want right away. You know its on Nagra stories but guessing and choosing a page and scrolling thru all the posts takes a lot of time. Try it, you'll see what I mean.
  5. It's just a picture of a list. The list shows what page number the post is on. I use it as a quick way to find something. You have to do it manually. Say I want to see "A Special gift" - it's on page 14, post 333. You have to close out the index, go to the top or bottom of this thread, click on page 14 and scroll down to post 333. Otherwise I would have no idea where it is. I would just guess where it is and go page by page, post by post until I find it. Now it narrows it down, I have something to go by. Since page 17 is the earliest page at the top of this thread, you have to click on page 17 then page 14, then scroll down to post 333. That would be great if I could have each story a clickable link to the page. But I'm pretty sure that can't be done from a picture. I guess I can include the url in the index to copy and paste into the browser. That would bring you right to the page but impossible to bring you to the correct post number. I was just happy to be able to figure out how to get it into my signature as a clickable link named JBond Post Index
  6. I was tired of trying to find a certain post or topic of mine. I would have to click on a half dozen pages and scroll up and down to find the post I was looking for. So for myself, I made a directory of where everything was that I posted. I had the list on my computer's homepage now for awhile. Today, I thought it would be better to incorporate the list into my signature in case anyone else wanted to find something. I hope it works. It works for me.
  7. At least now with Jwsound everyone can still be in touch. Not face to face but still have the conversation. Not the same, but in many ways even better. Clearly ahicomputer's pictures brought some good memories back for you and Philip. It would've all been a distant memory or not even remembered at all If you didn't make this convenient place to connect, discuss and remember.
  8. I see now I should have thought a little more before writing. I took (we serviced) but read as (we service). I guess at first glance the two pictures in the middle could look like today (people wise). I thought wow, they have a booming Nagra service factory there, even the girl is into it. But now, after a little slap of reality from Jeff, I think I’m back to normal. Yes of course, how can there be that many old Nagras being serviced at once in 2016? Most of them being III’s, even an old DH speaker next to the Nagra III in the back. I guess I just wanted to believe people are still working on Nagras. Thanks Jeff for the slap side the head, I needed it. Now I’m back in 2017, not the 70's Reminds me of this Seinfeld episode when this guy says (they're all chickens) (Those are all old pictures).
  9. Welcome to Jwsound, glad you found us. Great pictures, are these all older pictures or are some current pictures? I can't tell. I would say the one with the older Cadillac is and the Nagra booth is. But are the pictures with the repairs current? If so thats great you're still servicing Nagras. Its scary though seeing that Nagra III about to take a shower. I wonder whatever happened to all those Nagra posters? Post more pictures if you have them. Thanks for posting
  10. MarkC To be honest I think the bronzed lid hides the true beauty of the Nagra. You should try and find a clear lid especially for the Harvey mod Nagra.
  11. Philip The fact of “who you guys are" has always been a big deal for me since day one on Jwsound, as I have stated many times before in this thread. I’m proud to be posting and learning in the same forum as such accomplished, famous people as yourselves. Of course it's a big deal for you guys. I just meant you may be more accustomed to the fact of seeing your name in credits. I’m still amazed everyday when I look up what you all have accomplished. I don’t always get the chance to fit my thoughts about it into a post like last night, without sounding all giddy and mushy as I probably do right now. So it's not said much. But just know, I’m your biggest fan. Especially you “old” Nagra guys. (Not that you're old) the Nagra is. Where the hell is the smiley face when you need it? Scott That was the next question I was going to ask. Which machine was used? Now when I show my collection I can point to my Nagra IV-S and say Risky Business and many other movies were recorded on a machine just like this one. Risky Business - sound mixer Scott Smith. Just one of so many over the years. Very impressed Scott. As I am with Jeff, Philip and everyone else on this site. You all have so much to be proud of.
  12. My wife and I just watched the end of Risky Business. My wife says "can you believe this movie is 34 years old." I said the sound for that movie was recorded on a Nagra. "Oh really?" she says. "How do you know that." Because that's what was used back then. I said the soundman is most likely someone on Jwsound. I quickly looked up IMDB and saw sound mixer Scott Smith. I said it's Scott Smith - he just posted on my thread last week. See, right there. How about that she's says Then we waited patiently for the credits. There he is. I said the movie forever has his name on it. No big deal for you guys but we thought it was pretty cool.
  13. trant, If you mean in person? I’m 3,000 miles from you, Not sure you want to see it that bad. Any member can always reach me thru Jwsound, that would be the first step. Thank you Sir for your comment, I truly appreciate it. I’ll post a current full picture soon. Also I haven’t forgotten MarkC, I'll answer you also.
  14. Please don't tell me this is what you're talking about, Did a small Nagra replace this? This had to be used for something else, right! http://www.ebay.com/itm/Magna-Tech-magnetic-film-audio-recorder-/252220110407?hash=item3ab97d7647:g:s4AAAOSwZ1lWdwrk
