Don, I'll have some with me.

As for the glue gun? That's one tool I do not have. Also, on a totally unrelated note.....someone had asked if the cabins had a hand mixer for mashed 'taters. I don't think so, I would bring one just in case. I'll bring mine as well.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

Thanks Tom,

Have some on order but I don't think it will be in before I leave. Don't want my TFM-75 going into a shoot out wounded. 8) 8)

Tom.

Do you have a blender, Pat needs one to make her stuffing for the Turkey. I do not want to being one from Canada, I am sure that somebody that is
closer could bring one.

I remember the Coffee grinder, but not a blender. I hope I am wrong.

OO, Caig De-Oxit is a contact/connection cleaner. Don has an issue with the volume pot on his TFM-75. It most likely makes a scratching sound that is audible through the speakers at all volume levels when the knob is either turned up or down. When we pop the top of the unit to gain access to the volume control potentiometer, we'll spray the Caig De-Oxit into it while turning the knob all of the way up and down about 50-60 times. As soon as the chemical solution drys, there will be absolutely no audible noise whatsoever because the contacts will be clean.

Just an update....I found out today that all of the cabins should be equipped with one.

What the fuck?

Oh man, what are we gonna do with this boy James? #-o

4 - NO BOSE. As part of the unspoken rules of Carverfest, anybody who brings BLOSE into the cabins will immediately have to check it in at the door to offer it as a sacrifice to the audio Gods. A ceremony will have to be scheduled to find out when we all can watch it being thrown off the side of the mountain.

I think a good ol' fashioned whoopin' is in order too.

Tom, I think it would be more appropriate to destroy any Bose equipment by fire with a TFM-75~
