Who's he?
11/08/08 at 04:52:57
 
Just stoppin' in to say Hi. Been away for a while. Lots been goin on.

Got the car smashed back in April. Wife and I were sitting at stoplight when some dude not paying attention in the oncoming lanes crossed the line and hit us relatively head-on at ~40mph. We got messed up pretty good. Got a new car, out of it, though! Still hasslin with insurance. Picked myself up a bike, 2001 Buell Blast; lovin it.

Marriage has gotten quite rocky, divorce on the horizon. Oh well, crap happens, eh? No kids, yet, so it wouldn't be a terribly difficult process.

Ain't got to do really anything with speakers. I competed locally in SPL soundoffs, all 1st places with a Digital Designs 9515 with two M1a's (150.1db in the Suzuki Reno, NO treatments) then switched to a 3515 with the PG X600.1 and got a 146.9db on the dash.

Working hard, drawing for an architect. Draw Wal-Mart, Sams Club, 7-11, Papa Bellos, Autozone, Pollo Campero, working to get Target, etc.

Ah well, I'll try to stop in more often.

Jet-Lee,

Welcome back!

Sorry to hear about the accident, and the rockiness.  Personally, I hope the rockiness can be straightened out; I think living married is the best way to be, and working through difficulties makes a bond that is unreal.

I've been retired six months now, have a wonderful girlfriend I'm very serious about, and have more time for listening and reading and watching dvds and blu-rays than I ever thought I would. I'm happy.

Please inject some new life into this place. Smiley

Wow,
this kind of feels like a class reunion lol

Jet, sorry to hear of your troubles buddy. My wife and I went through hospital stays, loss of businesses, loss of family, and eventually a bankruptcy. Lon is right. If it can be worked out, life is more comfortable. Of course, we are behind you no matter what happens man.

Good job on the SPL runs! I wish I still had the enthusiasm (and funds lol) to play with that sport. Sometimes I really miss that world.

Lee, Lon, and Gex,

The four of us have been through a lot and we always manage to come back here and meet. It's a shame we aren't closer in proximity. I would love for us to get together over a drink sometime and tell our stories. (audio and others).

Good to hear from everyone. Hope all is well with you guys as well.

Take care,
Robert

Nice to see some familiar faces. This place isn't anywhere near as active as it used to be.

Marriage went from rocky to a rock wall; it ain't happenin' no more.

You all heard that tale of the guy who thinks his wife is cheating on him, late nights with the girls, dropped off around corner, blah blah blah. Then in the end, he hides behind his motorcycle and finds an oil leak and asks if that something he can fix himself or take it to the dealer?

Well, that's about the story of my life. Only now, the bike's fixed and put up for the winter, and she's "progressed" in her "friendships". Well f*** that, I'm gone.

Now I'm having panic and anxiety attacks. I say AND because they're two different attacks for me. Anxiety is where my entire gets very hot and it feels itchy all over, under my skin, shortness of breath, rapid (more) heart beat, lasts about 5-10 minutes. The panic attacks are different; it feels like someone just punched halfway through my chest, heart feels to stop, dizzy, cold, can't breathe, only lasts a few seconds.

I'm a freaking emotional train wreck.

But, put on a smile and go to work everyday!  :D

Sorry to hear about.

Time heals. After the  three years or so I had before my wife's death I felt as if nothing would ever be bright and shiny for me.  But within seven months the sun started shining and now I'm applying sunscreen.  Keep your chin up, I know you can. . . .

Hey Jet,

From someone who has been down that road, don't hold on to it by yourself.  Seek a support group in your area.  It helps to share the load.

musgofasa your post made me homesick. Like my long lost brothers.
It certainly would be nice to get together and relax and listen to tunes and tell stories
Adrian! long time no hear. I guess I should be one to talk eh?

Panic attack Hah let me tell you about Panic attacks well I remember one day when ( just kidding) Ya been there once for too long.

You gotta roll with it and feed your body good food can't stress that enough. I made some lifestyle and attitude changes and life seems simpler somehow. It takes much more effort to grind me into the ground. LOL
Can't lie dude! life can really suck, I just seem to have more fun with it.
Your quality of life can be reflected in the people you surround yourself with and your in good company here.

I don't hang out much because other things take precedent now. I also have some really sweet equipment from oply baffled. I do not want for anything. but I miss building HMMM I think I have a pic somewhere of my latest invention that lee and musgofasa might get a kick out of. I guess I did build something in the last year.

I know most of you will see the Decware in it. It goes under the rear Van seat and is tight against the floor and the energy is transmitted right into the van body. It works fantastic! surprised myself even. It uses a ten inch sub
My wife would not allow to me to use any cabin space and I didn't. I left it raw because I doubted that it would work but it did.

Nice dropping a note to you all.
Lee and all of you for that matter feel free to drop me a line/PM anytime

Hey Gex!
I wondered what you ended up doing in that van lol

It is good to see everyone. Since Steve split the forum, I can't get into the audio side and this side has been really slow. I can only log into this side at home and since I spend the whole day on a computer, well ya know.

JUst finished my HDTs yesterday and finished running all the new cabling for my HT. Good times here!

Take care everyone!

Well guys, turns out it's not panic attacks like they originally thought. The anxiety attacks I've had for years, no doubt. But this....is something else, still.

I've had 3 ultra sounds, 2 EKG's, 2 x-rays, a heart monitor and a stress test. This last visit (yesterday) I was given a shot of steroids. Chest doesn't hurt as much, at all, but I'm more afraid that this will only subdue the symptoms, not fix the cause. Next in line is heart cath and MRI's.

I could care less about a marriage at this point in time, I'm more concerned with keeping my own butt alive.

Bad outlook? Sure, whatever. My priorities have changed over the last couple weeks.

Hope you all take care.

Yikes Jet!

Sounds like an episode of "House".

Hope they get it straightened out man. I know how medical scares can put things in perspective. Take care of yourself first and let us know how it goes.

Take care buddy,
Robert

Well, I've had a lot of opportunity to learn a lot more about medical matters than I wish. . . .

One thing I've learned is that things are not always what they appear and are not always what some physicians think they are at first.  And that things aren't always THE WORST they can be.

It would not at ALL surprise me if the diagnosis, when finally reached and treatment begins, is not as scary as one might fear!

Here's hoping!
