Got to order about $60 worth of parts to get the other 3 working right. Then they go up for sale.

And the amp will see an 8 ohm load as it was supposed to instead of a 4 ohm load as it actually was the way it came from the factory.

Just finished rewiring one of the monitor cabinets correctly and it works MUCH better now. As in the control actually controls the tweeter.

Think I will look at them again tomorrow and hit the sack tonight…

Not sure if it is just late or if the manufacturer (Sonic) screwed up or what. Doesn\’t look like they have been rewired.

Have 4 monitor speaker cabinets and the 3 I have checked have the tweeter control wired to control woofer AND tweeter. I don\’t understand.

Heading back out in a few to check some more places and to go get some wood for the table tops for the flea market tables.

Made a few good buys this morning. Got 4 pa speaker cabinets, some glass, light fixtures, box of cloth and other bits, but no books.

Getting a late start. Fixing to eat and then head out to the yard sales.

Trying the new Wordpress 2.8 Beta2

And so far it looks really good. It adds the ability to add themes without having to use ftp to upload them which is a real step forward. Will have to play with it a bit more to see what else has changed. So far +++ though…

Update: Seems a LOT faster too…

Jim Reed Books – Birmingham, Alabama

If you’re ever in Birmingham (or anywhere close), love books and wandering around junk/antique shops then Reed Books is a MUST visit! Located at 2021 Third Avenue North, Birmingham, AL. I gotta get back over that way just to visit once again and see what’s new (old). ;-)

The Machine Stops by E.M. Forster

Below, you will find the complete text of The Machine Stops by E.M. Forster which was first published in the Oxford and Cambridge Review in 1909. The wikipedia page is at, and a movie based on the story is available at the IMDb at IMDb: Out of This World : “The Machine Stops”.

Quite an interesting story, and more so when you keep in mind that it was written (come Thursday, January 1, 2009) a hundred years ago! Enjoy!

Alabama Airsoft Forum is no longer at

The Alabama Airsoft Forum is no longer at located at due to excessive bandwidth requirements and no assistance from the forum members toward offsetting hosting costs.  While we were hosting the games there was some money coming in from the airsoft folks so this wasn’t a big deal.  However, it has now been months since the games were played here and I can no longer afford to continue supporting the increasing forum traffic, so I shut it down 2 weeks ago and have now removed the subdomain and forum redirect completely.  Since I am still getting hits from people trying to find the forum I am posting this link.  Please bookmark it.

The new site is located at Alabama Airsoft Forum.

Rocket stove Monday

By Dave, July 7, 2008 8:02 pm

Got out this morning and moved the plants from the back room outside. Should have done it 3 months ago, but… Went out back and cleared an area just outside the back porch and set a couple of 8 inch cement blocks. Added a couple of more on top of the first two and then a couple of solid 4 inchers on top of them. Gathered a pile of bricks and put them on top of the blocks. Dug a pile of red clay and shoveled it into the wheelbarrow then added an equal amount of ash from the stove from last winter. Mixed it up and chopped up most of the lumps and then added enough water to make a stiff mud. Filled the inside of of the bricks leaving an area for the twigs at the bottom which was filled with a wine bottle. Plastered the inside of the top stack until there was a hole about the size of a wine bottle and inserted it. Went in too easy so took it back out and added a bit more and reinserted it. Packed the mud down a bit and removed both the bottles and finished the inside by hand. Will let it dry for a day or so and then build a fire and fix any cracks. Looks like it will work just fine. Will add a grill to the top to place the pot on to cook in. Cat got a bunch of pix of the mudding part of the building that I will try to get posted asap. For now am going to water the plants out front and then read a bit. Till tomorrow… ;-)

Sunday and tired of the errors

By Dave, July 6, 2008 10:56 pm

Am going to make a move soon. Am tired of the crap service I get from the current hosting company who I will name as soon as I move the sites.

Been another mostly nothing day. Hoping tomorrow will be better. Till then… ;-)

Got up and fixed an apple pie this morning and went to the folks house for lunch. Twas all good. Pie was fair. Will try it again with a bit different mixture. Came back and doctored places I had broken out from exposure to cat dander/hair. Downloaded the pix from last night and got them up. Been sitting in front of the computer and catching up on the feeds since. Guess we’ll get out and about a bit tomorrow and see what is available at the local yard sales. Till tomorrow… ;-)

Jacksonville Alabama July 3rd 2008 Fireworks Display

These are the best pictures of the lot of 80 or so that I took. Cat also got a batch which I’ll get and upload soon. These were taken from our ringside seats in the old Edward’s pecan orchard which is about a quarter mile to the north of the college baseball field where the fireworks were launched from. Pictures are below the fold. Enjoy.

Just in from the Jacksonville Fireworks Show

By Dave, July 3, 2008 10:18 pm

Was quite a nice display this year. Seems like we have missed it the past couple of years. Went to a get together at the old Edward’s farm pecan orchard which is across from the college where they were shot off. Was quite a spread of assorted foods and I ate a bit too much for comfort, but had to try a little of everything. The fireworks started a bit later than they were posted as starting but once they got going was a solid 12 to 15 minutes of activity. Cat and I both took pictures. Not sure how many of them will turn out. I paged through the ones I took and it looks like there are a fair number of decent shots. Will download them to the computer either later tonight or some time tomorrow and get them up and online.

For now am gonna sit back and try to digest a bit prior to going to bed. Got some apples to make a pie with to take to the folks for lunch tomorrow. Going to try a recipe from Normandy Apple Pie that sounds both easy and quite good. Am planning on doing it in the 12 inch dutch oven rather than in the stove so will see how it works out. Till tomorrow… ;-)
