    One thing that TH has that would help is a vibrant marketplace. How can we grow that?

    Well, I can certainly make changes to the software end of things. The thing is, however, it doesn't make a big difference how good the site is if nobody uses it. That's the thing about forums: there must needs be a critical mass of users before it becomes steadily trafficked. We are far from that point.

    But, I mean, from a software standpoint, I'm a very good developer. I could make a better site than Reverb. Yes, I said that. But, I am confident in my abilities ;). However, the question usually comes down to: how should I spend my time? Software takes a lot of that.

    I just got my new Adams custom A1 genII recently - been having some super fun practice sessions getting to know this one!

    Do away with Electoral College, and we'll have a true democracy, which is defined by two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner.

    I'm not convinced a "true democracy" is the answer.

    I seem to remember studying this in school at one point. We read a book where the author described Republicanism as the virtuous form of government, while absolute democracy was the antithesis. Can't remember the author, now. Wish I did.

  • RE: First gig today

    I'm grateful just to get out of the house, sometimes. Yesterday, I was bogged down with stress and some buddies invited me to go fishing. Didn't catch anything, but it was such a relief to just leave the house for one hour.

    I learned, recently, that a "heart attack" is different from "cardiac arrest." There are some cyclists who have died from cardiac arrest while riding too hard. It's not like their arteries were clogged with gunk (they were pros, so they obviously ate well), but they, unfortunately pushed their bodies too hard and, just like that, they died.

    I just got back from a ride where I pushed myself too hard. I'm learning how to be more cautious and know my limits. Got to be safe out there!

    NO ! But, I bet you could tell some really interesting stories to youngsters of what and what not to do before considering the taking of vows.

    Yeah. Don't get married.

    Sorry, but I couldn't disagree more.

    My husband likes being married to another musician, and so do I. No one asking “Why do you practice all the time? Why aren’t you spending time with me?”. We both got sick of that in previous relationships! The only time in our marriage we’ve ever argued is when we have to share a practice space, so we’ve made sure the rest of our houses have had enough room for us each to have our own practice rooms. We’re coming up on 22yrs, so I guess it’s worked pretty well! 😁
