Friend, Male, 65, from India

Friend

I think I missed Monday. Is it too late for my weekly "What day IS it?" status update? Feb 12, 2018

        I could not forget the Goons! Spike Milligan was one of the Great Grand-daddies of surrealistic British humour.

        Born in the early 1950s, protocol required me to be in bed by 6pm. Even when I became a High Court Judge! (see Python). But I was allowed to listen to the, ahem, wireless until quite late, and started enjoying BBC radio drama, as well as the comedies, when I was five or six.

        When I was permitted to stay up with the parents and the TV, I frequently preferred the radio. My reason... the pictures were better!

        Thanks @Bill-P. Probably my lazy answer will be to replace the Senn foam.

        In an ideal world, if I was to undertake a moddification, the aim would be to achieve a more balanced sound, but I don't have balanced hearing. Actually, I found the HD600s pretty "balanced" even before my hearing took another turn for the worse.

        My favourite is Aukey, but the vote for Anker is noted and the recommendation appreciated. I have Aukey QuickCharge chargers in the house and car, and quite a few of their cables.

        I'm no cable guy, but hey, we now live in a world where many old USB cables won't even charge a modern phone.

        The Macbook Pro I have is all USB-C/Thunderbolt 3. I bought a whole mess of adapters after I bought the laptop. That being said, it's kind interesting to be able to charge my laptop and smartphone with the same cable.........if I used Android......

        Palemoon is not able to use many of the old FF extensions, but I won't need classic theme restorer as it is committed to not changing to the the recent FF look anyway. I suspect the resources are stronger.

        Which will continue if the developer has an unfortunate encounter with a bus? Which is more likely to get updates as more web dangers unfold? Important questions.

        I switched to Chrome a while back for several reasons. One is no active flash updates as those are done automatically on Chrome’s end (and I was previously using VMware desktop emulator quite a bit on iPad and Chrome is just plain better for that), another is that it runs lighter and feels quicker. I will prob give the new FF a try though.

        Hopefully we can find & settle on a fast, properly-supported & worthy-enough Fork... before the final ESR v52 comes out, I think by June 26th(?), as that's when the Official Security/Patch Support gets dropped permanently. *Sigh* :(

        You want to sell both? :)

        Even if it didn't end in a deal, that is a conversation I would want to have, at least. I now keep my eye on the HD800 prices online. If the deal you took advantage of came up again, I'd snap it up.

        The ironic part is "neutral" is bullshit. Its about as obtainable as the speed of light or absolute zero...

        ...Then if you found "neutral" (which you can't), 6 months of the aging process would take your ears out of it.

        It accommodates my ears like Senhnheiser sent somebody to measure them /and,/ in our climate, it is a lot cooler than the HD600s.

        For music, HD800 rules, even with my limited amplification.

        For speech, it sounds astonishingly real, but, like with certain female vocals, there is a little bite that causes some fatigue. Odd, as I probably can't hear much at 6K anyway.

        True. He must have been compulsive about cutting or biting them.

        Could well be. He uses music well in his videos, which are extremely well made. I know that YouTube can be a dangerous place for copyright stuff.

        Sad, though... really like it! The opening is a simple melody. The later part shows development and combinations. Don't know the technical terms.

        Safe and dry out west here. Lots of local flooding, roads being washed away, some small tornado damage... We had a minor emergency when our router/switch got fried in a power outage and we lost the internet! On a more serious note, there are a lot of people seriously impacted by this storm and I wish safety for them all.

        It has been intermittently unavailable recently, probably due to heavy traffic.
