    Have you thought about investing in solar panels?

    (I'm trying to be #7, I hope that's obvious.)

    If that’s your website, the bad news is you are spending too much time here. :p

    I'm #9 for sure.

    But even though I've been playing for 55 years I still suck.

    Those six personality types are half the reason that discussion forums are fun in the first place.

    I guess I qualify as #2. But details are soooo important...

    Well, I'm obviously a #10.

    Don't mess with me, man!

    I was on one of TDPRI's sister websites for less than a week before the ugly side of it came out and I've never been back. I couldn't even close my member account because the 'contact webmaster' email kept bouncing. :rolleyes:

    My favorites didn't get a category, not sure if the list is short or I just like freaks.
    Certainly no category for me, now that I figured out tech questions don't want tech answers.

    Q: How do I adjust the bias on my tube amp?

    A: With the amp on, change the bias resistor until the current draw is where it should be.

    Caveat: Don't get electrocuted by the 400v on some wires.

    I can’t understand the threads; “I don’t like non-guitar related subject which I’ve never tried and not interested in”.

    Also, BREATHE!

    Number 11: the Grammar/Spelling Cop. They need SOME reason to justify that ill-advised English degree, even if they have to torment you to do it, by gum!!! “Dictionary and thesaurus, please.” Respond deferentially and keep your hands calmly on the keyboard during the duration of the stop.

    Yesterday about half past lunch time I was driving back to work in heavy tourist traffic.
    Trying to turn into the side street my job is on, the bumper to bumper traffic on the main street stopped to let me turn in, but at the end of that side street was a car sitting in the wrong lane, just sitting like they had parked there.
    Tourists this season, who didn't get last years vacation, seem to have forgotten how to drive out of town.
    Can you understand that?

    I sort of can?
    Yet, I really can't understand why going on vacation makes the rules of the road not apply?

    So as all these cars were stopped, AND, there was a break in the pedestrians zombie hordes, I turned onto the street that car had blocked the end of, and into a parking space on the opposite side, placing my passenger window right next to their passenger window, and turned to see the two horrified looks on driver and passenger.

    Being half past lunch and generally frustrated, I blurted out: DO YOU HAVE HALF A BRAIN?

    Can you understand my frustrated lack of filter?
    I sort of can, but prefer to not be an ass in public.
