I know this is completely off topic and apologize, but I see your from Buffalo kneadle and I'm curious as to which college you work at. I live in Amherst and work at the University of Buffalo. I'm not a college professor though, just a lowly state worker.

Been there, done that. I know exactly what you mean. The more you define things the more people point out exceptions. It's better to have a looser definition - then nobody can pin you to it!

I am a professor of Old Testament at Concordia Seminary at Brock University; that's in St. Catharines Ontario. Small potatoes, but I deal with GRADUATE students who cavil over every stinking detail. And if you've ever looked at the Old Testament/Hebrew scriptures, it's got a lot of details! Augh!

By the way, I just moved here this summer. I really like Buffalo-Niagara. It is a pleasant place to live if I could not continue in my beloved St. Louis.

Oh, and to return us to the regularly scheduled programming of this thread, there's an electronics store about a mile from my house in Riverside: American Electronics (?) I'm heading there today to see what they've got.

Is there a DIY club or something less formal in Buffalo?

I'm also somewhat of a newcomer to the area and haven't met any persons or groups as interested in DIY home audio as I am.

If you ever happen to find any be sure to let me know, I'll do the same.

kneadle,

I noticed the other day that your location had changed form St Louis to Buffalo. Welcome to the western part of NY. Now if we could only find an audio group/venue in Syracuse we could meet half way.

My cup runneth over! I didn't know that I was near Clifton Park. It seems that my move to Buffalo was closer to one pole of the tri-pole DIY universe.

Those poles are: Somewhere west of Toronto, somewhere in Northern Europe, and somewhere in Eastern Australia...

Anyway, I'm being silly. The area is rich with DIYers. I went to that electronics store on Vulcan here in the northwestern corner of the city. Its name is actually Radio Equipment Corporation, and it is AWESOME. The only thing they didn't have was a variac, which is why I went. So I bought a set of alligator clips and promised to come back.

Transistors, capacitors, resistors, shrink tubing--shrink tape--pots, switches, used drivers, kits, and a whole warehouse besides. Oh! It was magnificent!

Wow...I'm flush with excitement. I need to finish up my current full range speaker project and get on with my BrianGT Gainclone with its Nuuklear reactor preamp.

Willikers!

Dave
