Amazing SH Forums milestones: What do 100,000 and 25,000,000 have in common?

    Congrats SHTV!

    Seriously the best thing about the Interweb--and the ONLY the Lonely Place I go on it!

    I have a love/hate relationship with this space, cyber and all. I Hate that I love it sooo0000 damned much. So much information about music and so many great posts and posters, with so many music insights, info, clues, and subtle (and KN ot) psychological profiles.

    It really is a a very special place--kudos to those who keep it alive and afloat
    .

    My problem with it really is my own, though I note many h-ear suffer from the same audio affliction, namely being addicted to this site!!! Sandy Denny wrote "Who Knows Where The Time Goes" and I know WHERE it goes when I'm on here.... away fast. Too fast. Could easily sign on in the morning and skip breaking my fast and my glasses and move on from there, thread to thread, and before I know'd it, BAM, its 4am%pm. Lights OUT!!

    Another day done and dusted, and another day "wasted" on the Hoffman Forums. I mean sure, I learnt a lot more about music and shared sum of my knowledge and opinions too, but really, that time mite oft been spent drinking bitters in German Overalls practicing my ANGlow-sized Queen's Impglish Grammar Mask Classes.

    So you see, I got this SHTV addictkion bad, and so I make myself a flightless risky self imp posed exile after thirty daze in this hole assuming eye newt the right pebble to write to anyhow.

    Yesah, a great place to fart about in cyber space to talk all about the music you love and the times gone by...

    Someday, I'll maybe mosey on by some motivational musick group about mindfulness an moderation and mid tempo rockers.

    PtSd: I been here 4 months, 2 months, on 2 months off.... such is the scale of my Hoffman SAddiction...

    Genesis of Nauga - I just Googled this, and will admit I once thought it was entirely a man-made material (sort of like nylon is)

    "The Nauga, a colorful, horned, happy-looking creature native to the island of Sumatra, was once hunted to near-extinction. They were hunted for sport, but more often for their smooth and durable leather-like hide – Naugahyde, as it's generally known."

    But when I Google for an image of the Nauga animal. didn't get anything but images resembling the Forum's favorite critter :(

    So, is the Nauga more like a Unicorn?

    No, definitely not. The Unicorn is cuter to me as my favourite animal is the horse & a unicorn is a horse with a horn on. My favourite mythological creatures are unicorns, Pegasus & Sleipnir. Pegasus is the flying horse & Sleipnir is the 8-legged horse of Odin's. Unicorns are from Scottish mythology, Pegasus is from Greek mythology & Sleipnir from Norse mythology obviously.

    You know I'm equine-crazy. That influences what I like. I forgot to mention I like centaurs too.

    I’m old enough to remember the print advertising campaign that was done for the “rollout” of this wonderful new product.

    Never knew about the "Nauga" creature but Zappa references naugahyde a couple of times and I used to have a pair of Goodmans speakers with a sort of naugahyde covering. :)

    I'm here most days and have learned a lot and am grateful for this resource and community.

    One wish is that there was a forum category for sound quality. I know that's what Music Corner started as, but very few of the threads there are about sound quality. I would welcome a category dedicated to sound quality / best pressings.

    Learned who Steve Hoffman is, and his contribution to the Music Industry(although apparently some Music Artists do not care about how their Music actually sounds). Anyways, if a fire and I can only grab a few CDs, the 4 Doors DCC CDs would be among the first ones I save.

    Learned that this place is not good for my Bank Account and Music Budget, and that is just on Music, as still need to complete my Components/System, which will need to wait until one more surgery to try and fix pain from damaged nerves.

    Also, learned that I package CDs I sell here, better than Amazon and ImportCDs in most cases. I learned about Grading and do my Best when grading my own Used CDs, using a Bright Light Source to identify any marks or scratches not visible under regular room lighting.

    Learned about Good Mastering and although not related, DR Average and the Start of the Loudness Wars around 1994/1995, which was the same time period of my Favorite Years(1994-1997) for New Albums based on my CD Collection:realmad:.

    Learned about Early CD Versions of Albums and Pre-Emphasis on some of them.

    Learned about Pressing Plants(The Good, The Bad and The Ugly).

    Learned that if I had a question, that several members here are glad to take the time to reply to my PMs.

    Oh, and I discovered this Great Psychedelic-Rock Song from a Prior Post by another Member soon after I joined this Forum:
