The forum is currently experiencing a "registration" attack via automated bots. Some 2500+ registrations got in before I realized what was happening. Put a countermeasure in place and out of the last 600 or so attempts only 7 were registered. Problem is, I haven't found a common trait in the registration info to identify which are real and which are Memorex. I currently have new registrations turned off until I figure out a solution.

Not more than 10 or so know what the Memorex statement is referencing.
Cool.


FB,
Hello.
"Is it real or is it Memorex." I thinking that the 10 or so would be the guys who know what a LP is and still have them.

As one of the youngest of this forum of elders I am familiar with the reference, too....wait. Sorry.

Good luck with the spambots, Wilbur.
I did have some vinyl around for a while, even a couple cassette tapes for a bit, but have no means to play them anymore.

This whole interweb thing is really taking off, eh?!

putting in record players in cars I had to resort to a new gizmo, an '8-track player' to listen to my favorites...

Well I'm not old (so I think) and I've still got tapes and vinyl (just bought a few new vinyl albums in the last few months) and I've still got the tape player and a record player. :cool::cool: just something about the sound of vinyl compared to CD's.......Ian

XM has a station, 'Classic Vinyl' where it's all they play :)

You can hear the swish

Digitally re-mastered to add the swish.....

Heard Mama Cass's Dream a little Dream digitally recently & like the purification of many converted vinyls, they've deleted the buzz from a finger running down the guitar string. Probably done by the same crew that airbrushes & photoshops.

Remember when celebrities were real people & the mistakes added color?
