    The Journey begins

    The Black Cat arrived to day, seems everythingís there, I got an old PC out of the loft to use. I was panicking because I remember there needing to be a LTP port serial port then I remembered that this came with one that plus into the a PCI slot.. pheww, then it turns out the old machine had a serial port after all .. bonus !
    Luckily Iím working from home today and heard the 16 tonner , turbo charging up the hill of our street, because he was lost , they had given him the wrong address.. so after he had gone past twice I stood at the end of the driveway and sure enough he gunned it down the street and pulled over to ask me directions, I asked him who it was for, and that turned out to be me. Anyway after a tirade of expletives and generally bringing the parentage of his dispatcher into question, he got out of the cab, looked at his paperwork and said .. do you have a folk lift ? I said what the fook for ? he said it says here its 500 kgs.. I said it says Goodyear on my tyres, but it fooking hasnít been..! so he drew back the curtains and I said it would have to be made out of plutonium to way that much.. he agreed and we humped of the wagon and into the shed.

    My mate is a joiner and he has all the tools to build a work bench, luckily for me he lives next door :) I get him ďfilmsĒ and he helps me make stuff. So we will be building that next week. I hope to get the miller up and running before I start messing with the base plate.. after that I will make a Perspex box a. to stop cutting going everywhere and B. for my personal safety lol ..then I will make a sound proof box with all the speaker sound proofing materials I have for the compressor and vacuum pump. Thatís as far forward I thinkÖ.

    S1's I bought them at a car boot sale off some angry looking women who said they were her ex-husbands ..and didnít work.. I got them home thinking.. What the hell could go wrong with them.. ? I mean speakers arenít rocket science. And when I took out the post panels the crossoverís had been snipped! Guess he thought she would just give them back to him, but hey his loss my gain a bit of wire and solder and they were off and running.. I was going to set my daughter up with a system in her room with them, but she would just piss all the street off every night so I have them in the workshop.. Besides I like to hear good music .. the QED P300 and all the other stuff ..I was given because it wasnít working.. most where simple fixes , I have an Arcam 350 in a box on the floor just needing a new toroid.. amazing the things people just give away lol
