Nice. I need to see an ENT...I have enlarged turbinates as far as I can tell. I can't survive just breathing through my nose most of the time...I can't get enough air :|
Matt: I researched this surgery quite extensively .... Dr. Robert Capasso - considered by some as one of the top five ENTs in the world (Check his medical journal articles on the subject) is at Stanford. I had him perform this procedure as well as two others on me in 2011.
I live is the Central Valley, where every known pollen seems prevalent, and I breathe so much better.
Read up on the turbinate reduction.... most docs just fry your turbinates and then if you get caught out in cold weather or snow country you can feel like you have a perpetual brain freeze going. Feel free to PM me if you would like to talk with someone who did extensive research before having this done. The procedure is in theory "simple" but the level of post op success is highly dependent on the surgeon's technique and skill.
Overdue for update. Installing new exhaust Saturday, then will fire up and final tune.
If no rain Saturday, I hope to drive it home from Modesto.
Helping one of the Big Three film a new truck commercial this weekend up in the Sequoias for an overseas market. Involves "specially trained squirrels" - that's all I can say.
Real squirrel actors involved. They do some sort of tricks. Whatever these furry critters do during their comedy routine, the truck manufacturer is paying BIG bucks to film it in my County.
One of my work duties at the County is assisting with film production. When this lovely party in the back woods above snowline is all over, I'll try to post a link. And hopefully, once said squirrels are gone next week , I can post a real update and report on if the truck is finally a reliable runner.
So, after all this great advice, it has been determined that the fuel line was clogged, so the pump was screaming. Tank pulled, cleaned and lined. New filter. Will fire it up this weekend and see if all is well.
When I worked as a manufacturer's rep for MTX and Rockford-Fosgate and attended CES shows and sound offs, we used to send a ringer around and challenge other speaker reps to show us how low their setups would go.
When you found a hick with a big swinging dick, we'd send in someone and ask if they could play a favorite song and see how their setup sounded.
That's when the shill would ask someone to play a "Flem and the BB's" Cd at extreme volume, and watch a nice Cerwin Vega or other vanity speaker setup cough up a shredded cone trying to hold a 15 hz note that snuck on them with the volume maxed out....
Focal and Dynaudio gear is awesome. So are Morel woofers.
It's hard to beat a top end woofer with a three inch voice coil installed in an acoustically engineered enclosure, even with 1,000 watts.
