    A storm hit New England and I have no power, heat, internet etc. I am at a friend's house in another town now. If any one has sent me an Email inquiry about the VTA amps in the past two days it may not have been answered ? I may be out of power for a week they tell me ..

    Hope you took a ST-120 with you.
    In addition to great audio,
    they make a wonderful space heater.

    Seriously though, take care and hope you get home soon.

    Well I finally got power back now on Saturday (11/5/11) ... 6 1/2 days with no electricity. The were only two GOOD things that happened during this time ... 1. It was fairly warm here in New England for this time of the year and I didn't have to worry about my pipes freezing ... 2. My wife and I stayed at my mother-in-law's house who doesn't have internet service - BUT - fortunately the fellow across the street has an unsecured wireless internet router. I was able to use my laptop computer to hop onto his wireless system (without his knowlege) and send and receive Email.

    Glad you got your power back. There’s always the gas generator option. You’ll need at least 2000 watts so you can play your M-125s loud enough to drown out the noise of the generator.

    The worst thing is that even if you have power, the cable/phone service is usually down so you still don’t have an internet connection.

    Wow Bob,
    I was the recipient of one of those illicit email sent with barrowed bandwidth. I hope homeland security does not take us away. I would truly hate the waterboard I'm, sure.
    Thank you for all the effort you have made for us all. I'm happy you aren't freezing way up there.
