Coming from you, I'm really flattered. You probably don't remember me, but a number of years back, I had the honor and pleasure of attending one of your getogethers.
It was all VAC front end, LS9s, some prototype stats, and Danny was demoing his V1s and Dodd battery powered gear downstairs. It's safe to say that the "bar" was strapped to a rocket and fired into the sun that day. I only hope to end up with a room like that some day.
