And here is a slight diversion from our Solar battery company Zenaji. (Its related to surround as the battery powers the surround system!)

We had comply to approvals etc on many things including the strength of the wall mountings and we had to demonstrate that the mounts could support the battery plus 3 times its weight. It gets sent to TUV in China for approval. We suggested a "human" weight - my ever charming 6 feet 6 son the batteries designer Max.

We only employ really ugly female staff or everyone gets distracted (but she is super smart). It was done on the side of my house that is set to get 90 solar panels on the roof!!

Cannot resist this one.

I was assisting our new and really good marketing crew Jen and Roy today in Geelong a town near Melbourne set up and do a demo of our Y4 surround sound system. As you guys might know we do not use the center channel band aid - we have our patented SST system that just uses 4 speakers.

In the demo we had 5 people in the room arranged across the room left to right. The (boring bloody) tennis was on the TV with a central commentators voice. I asked everyone to close their eyes and point to the commentator.

Everyone pointed to the center! Even though they were across the room.

It was just a nice image - I should have taken a photo!

They all agreed that they had no preferred seated position in the room

Dear All

Had a day in the hospital yesterday having my third dose of heart surgery to burn out electrical cross pathways in various chambers of my ticker. I have had various flavours of arrhythmia's since the age of 17. I remember going into hospital at around 21 years of age with my ticker doing 240 bpm for 12 hrs, being a muscle bound youth in a heart ward surrounded by a bunch of old guys! I remember hearing the nurses whisper around the corner - he have a look at this guy. These days I am one of the old guys!!!

Anyway as you get older the problem usually gets worse and I had to go in for my third yesterday for atrial fibrillation, it really is nasty when it hits you and feels like a fish flopping around in your chest. Turns out I am the poster boy for this condition being an ex runner, current bike rider, current weight lifter and being above 6 feet 1 (strange I know).

Its really is just a horrible day full of indignities like getting your nuts shaved (starting to like the feel!), waiting around for hours before you are escorted to "the slab", then you get there and there are 8 people in the room and the machine that goes "ping". Then you are slid onto the slab (6 people in my case being 116 kg), then the joy of the prep where they wack the covers off and paint your glory and more importantly your crutch. They get to the heart via the large artery in your crutch. For just once in my life I would appreciate not getting "medical shrinkage" but no, happened again, my 7 inches reduced to say 7 mm of flaccid shame. (oh just to make everyone happy the actual average is 5.08 inches- not the mythical 6).

Then its 2.5 hrs awake live on line as the quacks do their radio ablation thing- you do feel the burning sensations. First time I did it, I had cyro ablation, that is different as you feel cold freeze head aches and hiccups occasionally. Oh, do the radio version it really is safer as the larger diameter of the cyro probe can cause blood clots as happened to me first time

Then comes the really fun part of the day there 4 - 5 hrs lying flat motionless whilst clamping down on the cut artery in your crutch, with the nurses checking out your shame every 30 minutes or so. Its agony and you are busting for a piss towards the end.

Any way I was wheel chaired out at 7.00pm and I am back at work today with a noticeable limp with a black and blue crutch.

Later this year a new partial knee for lefty, then I will be perfect in every way

Dunno what this has got to do with surround

I am that tough
With apologies, after a slight modification, sung to the tune of a well known song!

"Can't Tie me Chucky Down, Sport"

There's an old Australian stockman lying, trying.
He gets himself up onto one elbow and 'e turns to his mates,
who are all gathered around and 'e says:

Get on with it you slackers..............

Hoping all goes well for you this year. As long as you don't end up with one of those blood clots in your lungs, you should be ok. Remember, if get short of breath, go immediately to the ER as that is the sign of a blood clot in your lungs. About 30-40% of people with undiagnosed clots die within 1 month. I waited about 3-4 weeks thinking it wasn't anything to worry about ( the male ego thing) and they told me I just made it in time to the doctors office. I was in a hospital room within 15 minutes of getting the CT scan showing the large blood clot in my right lung. I can't believe you went back to work that soon.


Thanks for all you do for the audio world. I think we all agree that you should be more highly compensated for your work.

Hey Hobie1dog
On the first cryro ablation when the blood clot traveled to my lungs, it was miserable for 2 months whereupon it finally became part of my lungs- now fine but was on daily injections of blood thinners for a month. Nasty experience but lucky it did not travel to the heart or brain.

Looking forwards to getting new partial knee on lefty, since the righty replacement I have been 2 cm taller on that side (So I wear a lift in my left shoe to not look like the leaning tower of Pisa). If you are a runner- stop now, I was not that smart.

Have I told you how much I hate "Doctors" and the arrogant medical world?

Glad you're well enough to post to the forum. 20 years ago I had angioplasty where they went in that artery in my leg, as you describe. Unblocked 2 arteries, 1 that was 80% blocked and a second that was 90%. Like you, the bruising was spectacular, and turned into a rainbow of color before fading away. Happiest bruise I ever received!

Get well soon, sir.
