    As a frequent participant in Civil War re-enactments, I enjoy the opportunity to don clothes made out of wool and fire my 1861 Springfield replica. What I also enjoy is no cell phone, no iPad… no electronics at all… Call it nostalgic, but it’s attractive to escape to this simpler life. Note, however, that simpler does not necessarily mean easier. It’s fun to cook over an open fire, and the food always tastes great, but it’s also a lot more… View this post

    When it comes to the upkeep of sound and A/V systems, I suspect that we often confuse or misuse the terms maintenance, service, repair, replacement and other related words. My definitions: Maintenance – General care and cleaning done at regular intervals that helps equipment and systems last longer and continue performing at their best. Service – More comprehensive than maintenance, this is usually performed by a trained professional with the purpose of addressing minor performance issues before they become worse.… View this post
