My Internets are cranky. The OTC cure, use mobile H data.

CHAPTER I
Cable Modem and Network Status
Thunder, rain and possible tornado weather plus a consumer grade Cisco Cable Modem failure hit at the same time, relatively speaking. The Cisco modem went back to its maker. New modem is a ARRIS WBM760 that has a normal User Interface. Cisco added the Suit Design It Feature -- no UI for displaying modem status.

My Audio Did Not Seem Quite Right! Test Tool Time!

I have a chicken wire and patch cord audio system. Three different make, model and year speakers. Well, they seemed to have lost the edge they once had. Flat was, well too flat and the bass was rumble city.

The fix is simple use a calibrated source. THX

The image you see is deliberately posted because I think it is a silly thing for the source to require folks to do. Easier to just suck the video out of the net and park it on you private account in the Caymans.

Sucks! You cannot trust compressed audio in a rinky-dink flash server. All the range is squished

out!

[-------------------------- The Right Stuff --------------------------]

Therefore use this from THX via HD

Test separation and low notes

But what the hell is one click to get audio that will tell you your speakers suck.

P.S.
"Why"
Sweaty, pushy, choking Why God, Why?
Pushy, steamy, crowds Why God, Why?
What have I done to deserve this red horror? 
Surrounded on all sides with the Hell of crowds Like a poe character, 
I'm wordy and alone Why God, Why?  
Smelly, sweaty, icky Why God, Why?
Crowds, icky, choking Why God, Why?  
What have I done to deserve this red disaster that is my life? 
Surrounded on all sides with the Hell of crowds Like a poe character, 
I'm wordy and alone Why God, Why?  
What have I done to deserve this red misery? 
Surrounded on all sides with the Hell of crowds Like a poe character, 
I'm wordy and alone Why God, Why?  
Why God, Why? 
Why God, Why? 
Why God, Why? 
Why God, Why?
 
And a second one to be sure I formatted text right.

"I Think"

I Think crashing are really a huge problem
I Think dying are too much on my mind
I Think bleeding have got a lot to do with why the world sucks
But what can you do?

Like a teal rain, beating down on me
Like a Bacon line, which won't let go of my brain
Like Nancy's ass, it is in my head
Blame it on traffic
Blame it on traffic
Blame it on traffic

I Think screaming are gonna drive us all crazy
And broken make me feel like a child
I Think shattered will eventually be the downfall of civilization
But what can you do? I said what can you do?

Like a teal rain, beating down on me
Like a Bacon line, which won't let go of my brain
Like Nancy's ass, it is in my head
Blame it on traffic
Blame it on traffic
Blame it on traffic

Like a teal rain, beating down on me
Like Nancy's smile, cruel and cold
Like Bacon's ass, it is in my head
Blame it on traffic
Blame it on traffic
Blame it on traffic
