Buddha, dude, I'd much rather visit you and hang for half a day to talk about audio and related matters. At least you're a normal person.
But "Buddha" is a fake name! How do you know he'll be at home when you knock on the door? Geeez, Ethan! Is this your attempt to wienny out of this whole affair? Much safer to visit someone who can't hear any better than you, eh?
Ethan, you and the Lesser Buddha both wish to portray me as some "desperate" soul. Get over yourself, guys! You started this thread, Ethan, all you have to do is live up to what you said you were going to do without turning this into a steel cage match. Do you have to greet Frog as if he were along lost friend? No. But there is no reason you cannot treat him as someone you might like to get to know. It's very basic, Winer, just don't start the whole affair with a chip on your shoulder. Just don't act like an eight year old. Oh, yeah, yeah, that makes me sound so "desperate", doesn't it? I don't know, Winer, I'm seeing you as maybe 5'2". You and "LB" are, as we say in Texas, "All hat and no cattle".
All you have to do is live up to your word and not turn this into a grudge match and things will be "depserately" OK. All LB has to do is stop being a world class jerk just because he feels he can.
