    Did I burn out a motherboard? I can't remember!:D

    I did so many builds around 2011 that I had an entire room filled with computers. I had to put some in storage just to save on the electrical bill, and then sadly I spent the next 5 years pillaging them for parts because I really didn't see a need to build a new one. I am however looking at a new build quite soon, and I think I'm going with AMD Ryzen 7 1700. So yes, I'm still here!

    LOL, ddp. I am close enough to the border to be considered a Canadian, and I do like my Canadian neighbors. You are friendly.

    It's from 1904, and self abuse aside, might be made compulsory wear for Hollywood Producers, ex-Sports Doctors etc.

    For it to work on the Sports Doctors it's going to need matching mitts.

    What system, hear what? Then again I suspect some of us have hearing aids by now so they might not be hearing so well. So what did you build? I built a new system about 8 or 9 months ago.

    @permiggs - Hi Permiggs, Jerry here … I was one of the old school lot and a senior member quite a few years ago but drifted away; there were just too many jerks always starting arguments. I had posted mostly in the home theater and receivers section. I must admit, we did have some fun discussions and the site was jumping in those days. I remember you writing about your dad being a big fan of Mario Lanza who, even after all these years, was still something of a big name in what was then my home town of Philadelphia before I retired (Lanza was a Philly native). I recognize some of the names; some of the old crowd are still here … glad to see that you are!
