“Forgiveness means letting go of the hope for a better past” (Surya Das)
It is my theory that playing songs loud helps to get them unstuck from my head. Well, at least sometimes. It certainly took a couple of attempts with this one! Good thing Shuwen had to leave the house for a dentist appointment. 😉
Another July 1st has passed, and I missed to add the “runniversary” post! This year, it’s the 6th one. Even though I haven’t kept up the routine of running every other day that I initially pursued when I began running, on July 1st, 2017: I’m still running, and more or less regularly. 🙂
Shuwen brought some funny & fancy single serve drip coffee portions back from her trip to Taiwan. I had never seen something like this before! It works surprisingly well and is fun to make.
It’s been a week or so with my new speaker setup and I can honestly say that I’m very pleased. I added ferrite cores to the cables and they did in fact reduce the slight humming (which was not very audible to begin with) to a point where it doesn’t bother me. I’m not standing there with one ear two inches away from the speakers. 😅 It’s a non issue at this point.
Yesterday, the subwoofer arrived and 😱 that is really, really a lot of bass! Way more than what is necessary, when at its default settings! I went back & forth with the various settings and switches on both the subwoofer and the monitors and I think I’ve found a useful combination now.
My replacement speaker has arrived two days ago and luckily, it passed the sine wave test tone challenge. The speakers also do not make any sounds that they should not make. Almost!
The good news: I am actually able to hear when a speaker makes a sound that it is not supposed to make. And with this, you may already have guessed the bad news: the speaker drama continues. I’m hearing something that I should not hear. In one of my new speakers, of course. It’s “I can’t believe this is happening reloaded.” 😖
