    Default TUMBLEWEEDS. DEEP SPACE RADIO NOISE. ETC.

    Ahh me.

    Been going to MM's FB shithole.

    "Mixermania".

    It's a fucking intellectual vacuum.

    Yes. I spelled it right.

    It will suck both your brains, and your will to live, out through your eyes.

    I dubbed it "Purple Place MKII".

    Which is being NICE about it.

    OK.

    I'm done.

    We can keep meeting HERE if anybody gives a fuck.

    'Cause I kinda still do.

    Which is becoming somewhat problematic.

    Apparently.

    XOXOX

    I'm here on an hourly basis. Yes - I'm diagnosed. It's a bit lonely. The place, that is.

    I'm still here on a regular basis - the window opens whenever I boot Firefox.

    It's kinda quiet though - annoyingly quiet.

    Could use a good Slipperman rant or two to liven the place up.

    I still can't access the FB page, not that I use FB for much beyond band promo these days.

    The inability to quote posts on FB makes it nearly impossible to carry on a meaningful multi-person conversation except in real time and I refuse to allow myself to be glued to a FB page. I do use the private (private?) messaging some.

    I'm with you

    I know he wants to drum up "traffic", but the level of discourse there just makes me hate everyone...not as much as you do, but almost

    It's like I'm a music lover and they're all Donald Fagen (or Boris Becker, or whatever the other perp's name is)

    You mean Donald Fagen on a Hondo 80-s guitar through a Line 6 Spyder micked with an SM-57 into an Art Tube VLA through a Soundblaster listening via Zachry all weather speakers?

    Still there too and as much as I wish there were more people involved in the forum, I'm glad it's not like the FB page. That thing is just what slippy said it is... and worse.
    Great, quick or cheap. Pick two
    It's vintage only if it works. Otherwise it's just an old piece of junk !

    It was kinda funny when Mixerman warned his buddies not to just come to Mixermania to hawk their wares when he presumably set it up so he could hawk his.

    Is it supposed to be ostensibly about discussing audio? It would take a while to discuss all the reasons that this is a superior platform for that.

    For starters FB is like a primitive 15 year old message board except with the ability to link to stuff. No bold or italics or smilies (unless you pay extra, probably) and half the stuff that shows up on my newsfeed I'm unable to like or comment on without friending whomever it was shared from due to FB's insidious design. No spaces between paragraphs, anything longer than a few lines is hidden and shit jumps around so if you follow a link you can't find your way back to where you were.

    I've known about bacon since I was a child. Only on FB is it newsworthy.

    Just because you have the ability to announce to the world that you are about to take a nap doesn't mean you should.

    Also I'm tempted to myth bust all the factually incorrect memes that I notice, which is most of them, but I don't have time for that.

    I could go on... and I probably will.

    Back to the OP

    Just back from Mixermania where a couple of people made purple place comments.

    Slipperman made a herculean effort to politely explain the futility of chasing your tail as you tumble down a rabbit hole...

    only to be completely ignored

    I like this place, am here every day and do my best to contribute, um, for better or worse....
    I havnt bothered to check out the Facebook thing yet.

    I probably will, at some point, but I probably won't frequent it. The purple place is available if what I decide I want is post count, and I basically never bother with it.

    Still, a little more traffic wouldn't kill me.
    I'd invite people, but I know very few engineers IRL.

    I try to check for new posts here most days. I've pretty much quit going anywhere else. I just don't have a lot to contribute most of the time.

    I take it to be some kind of barometer as to how bad the Facebork thing is going, when Aardy posts over here earlier this month...his first post on the forum since about September 2013.

    http://thewombforums.com/showthread....948#post434948

    Of course - being a post from Aardy - it made the usual lack of sense, and was filled with the vitriol and bad manners we've come to expect from a deluded Habs fan.

    I still check in here every day as things pop up that I can learn from, and if a subject comes into my field of experience or - dare I say it - expertise, then I can share whatever insights I may have gleaned over the years.

    Or abuse.

    I'll do that all day long.



    Cheers,
    Tim

    I visit here because it's an oasis of civility and I learn stuff. I'm still puzzling over JJ's latest teaser.
    And if I think it's too quiet, all I have to do is walk across John's lawn...

    Kind of a shitstorm of entropy out there now.

    If there can be such a thing.

    I guess not.

    Anyhoo.

    Fuck it.

    We gotta do something.

    It truly sucks right now.

    I joined the fbook group. I don't think I really have much to contribute there, but I don't have much to contribute here either, so we'll see.
