dude you could pass the technician's ham license with a couple hour's studying. it'd probably take you less than a day to learn the material for the general. I bet you know most of it already--you'd only have to learn the regulation-related stuff.

    Interested.

Duly noted.

The bells already have an intrinsic long ring to them (because if we remember a damper pedal on the piano, when pressed, lets the strings vibrate and die out naturally since it lifts the felts, whereas when it isn't pressed the felts will shorten the die-out time). Shortening their ring sounds terrible--you can do so by regulating the instrument poorly and it's just awful.

If you click on the text that lets you see who shared/circle-dotted a comment, then click 'discuss', the textbox appears for a second and then disappears. If you close the "shared" text, you can click 'discuss' and the textbox appears as normal.

Let's do Tonic on Post St in SF

Shouldn't be too hard for you to get to, and I think an acquaintance of mine bartends there on Thursdays.

See you 8ish!

Thursday evening? Dinner or drinks?
