No. He's dead.
Well.......the OP, if we look back, DID start a thread called...
Old Guys and Technology
You're aware that he was a raging alcoholic who died at 39, right? OTOH, I agree with his sentiments...
Welcome to The Gear Page.
Yeah and for an almost 70 year old retiree on a pension, I'm sure you'd recommend a Lakland bass and an Ampeg
He started playing three years ago as a gift to himself after beating liver cancer.
The MFX was a gift from me to encourage him, and placate my stepmom who was losing sleep while he practiced.
Lighten up Francis... Never heard a bass player joke before?
Not a bass player. I'm a guitar player and I sensed that you hadn't genuflected while typing your joke.
do you play your guitar in everyday situations and annoy the living crap out of people around you?
wait, that probably describes half the gigs I play so nevermind ;-)
What qualifies as "tech"? Where do you draw the line?
Electricity? Indoor plumbing? Landline phone?
Sticks are cool, but if you shape or sharpen one end, I’m out.
If I need to I do, but if I want to well . . . stand aside youngins'.
I built my mom a pc after my dad died like 20 yrs. ago. Built her three actually and spent time showing her how to get "tech support" locally as we lived in different states. When it got tough for her to go up and down stairs I get her a Netbook like mine and she used it till she passed at 83.
Systems I've lived through -
Win7, 8 and now 10
OS Tiger, Lion and now El Capitan - (my iMac will be 11yrs old this year)
I think I'm good for a while - I like fixing guitars.
One of my great-aunts has a phone that allowed her to call out, but nobody else could call in. Drove my family nuts, but that was how she wanted it.
VIC 20 came out in 1980. And when did the 80s become “40 years ago now”?
It’s “Twitter”, and nobody has really had a MySpace account for years.
Young guys, go to the forest and sit under a tree for a few hours without "your device". You're welcome.
JCL and COBOL for this old geezer. Y2K was a very busy time for me.
1) I wish that I knew how to use Instagram, but it eludes me.
2) I had to chuckle when I saw that zztomato had liked a posted by zzmoore.
I had a RK combo when they first came out.
Select your tubes and rectifier type per channel with 4 channels. Fender (ch1), Vox (ch2), Marshall (ch3), Boogie hi-gain (ch4). Life was simpler then.
Great amp, but I got tired of humping around a 100lb tank.
A very large chunk of my students take weekly quizzes and exams on their smart phones. I don't recommend it, but they do it anyway.
