Hi from an island in Western Canada.
Hi, my name is Bob, and Frank is my friend here (from Australia) who introduced me to your excellent forums site. :)

I'm Canadian, duh (it's in my title), and I luv everything we create (audio/video). ...Plus paintings, sculptures, photographs, designs, all that creative jazz. :cool:

I also play music (guitars, flutes, harmonicas, pianos) for roughly forty-five years. ...Non-professional.

I built my first loudspeaker when I was sixteen.
And my first r.a.d.i.o. (AM Mono) was given to me by my GrandMa on my sixth birthday.
I bought my first turntable when I was twelve, I think.

Anyway, Music and Cinema have always been my passions in life.
And I took courses at school on some of these disciplines, plus I worked on those disciplines as well.

And I planted over two million trees, mainly on the West Canadian coast.
So I know a thing or two about trees and forests.
Some of my own trees are hundred feet high.

I am much more than that, but for now that would suffice. :)

Have a great weekend everybody,

Hey Bob,

There's a few of us from Van Isle. I'm in the Nanaimo Ladysmith area. You?

An island in Western Canada? Geez man it deserves more than that. :D

450 km of some of the nicest land in the country.

Welcome aboard fellow Canuck.

Ryan, methinks he's down at the bottom in or around that town that starts with a V.

Into the Illuminati?

Hey, Bob, good to see you on board! This island of yours, obviously is one of them places, might have to check it out one of these days .... :)

Thx Canucks, and Aussie Franky mate (he's my bud I was referring to before). :)

My main mansion is in Victoria, and I also have a fishing 'shack' in Mill Bay, and a 'sanctuary' in Duncan area. Plus Mayne Island is another 'refuge'.

By the way, I got trees on the Charlottes (Queen Islands).
Any of you guys who have ever been there?


Now, first thing first! ...You know what I like about your site right from the bat?
...There are NO numbers! ...I just luv it! ...No goddamn post count! :cool:


Now, what else you wanna know? :D

You'll have to come up the mountain and have a listen and see the "lab".

Alright, my turn.

1. How long or how many posts do I need before they go through immediately?
2. About my signature? I looked to sign for one but helas couldn't find anything.
3. There are numbers (post counts); but somehow hidden.
4. I hate any type of reputation system. ...But I'll live.
5. No [Visitor Messages] box?
6. Only 50 PMs allowed?
7. There seems to be some real cool (nice) folks here.
8. Planet10, yes, I am very much into Illuminati. Dave, you're in my town.
9. Ryan, you are my neighbor.
10. Cal, I can tell you have a good sense of humor.
11. Frank, you were right; good bunch here. ...And all from my island too.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone, :)
