    It would be great if you could give us an update. Thank you for your efforts. You are a good man.

    Since I added the new metal roof over the existing metal roof on my mobile home, phone and internet reception is crappier than ever. I usually have to sit outside to get reception, and battle the mosquitoes. At least I have a five foot overhang to keep me in the shade.

    Talked to Robert on the phone last night for about an hour. He's fine, getting heath in order, working on his house and hustling up more work in his business.

    Whatever happened to Ken Kantor? I don't remember seeing him around here in quite a while.

    Enjoy,

    Ken was last seen on AK, Feb. 2, 2015.

    I hope I wasn't a factor in his departure. He and I got into a debate regarding ABX blind testing, and whether or not valid science is used when voicing loudspeakers.

    He left shortly after this, IIRC. Botrytis was involved in the debate, if he remembers any of it.

    I think he quit because of getting tired of (essentially) debating how many angels can dance on the head of a pin and whos advanced degree was better than the other guys.

    The same story again and again. I respect such a decision. However there are alternatives instead of leaving the forum forever for such reasons.

    Yeah, you could always just put the people who somehow have annoyed you on ignore and cut off communications with them, while still being able to take advantage of the things you enjoy about AK.

    The ignore feature is great but there are times when someone you ignore shares your interests. Then there can be threads that are of interest to you that can get hard to follow. I only use that example as it happened to me with some cable threads, I ended up leaving for a couple years.

    Any given post by an ignored member can be de-ignored for perusal.

    I periodically read a post by one or another ignored member -- virtually 100% of the time, I am vigorously reminded as to why I'd put the member on "ignore" in the first place. :(

    Something must have happened to him! He just left AK one day, not like him to do that! He's sadly missed!
