Default Can't believe what's here

I was searching the web for amplifier construction information when this site popped up. Wow! I can’t believe how many knowledgeable people are out there, and willing to share their experience with the rest of us.

I have a background in Electronics, and worked for a couple of years as an Audio Engineer. But that was a while ago, and there’s a lot of stuff I want to re-learn. I look forward to hearing from many of you while I do that, and hope I can contribute in some way.

Cheers, BC

Guinness Smiley - way to go!

That you again Harry? Found a job selling scopes, I see. Good.
I could need a better one. Any good prices on a Tek?

Harry is clever. He did fool me, again! Christer, do you have "Fingerspitzgefüle" (was it right) for our friend and how he is writing?

Well, I wasn't 100% sure in this case, I must admit, but the
enthusiastic introduction sounded a bit ironic and artificial,
possibly reflecting how Harry perceives many members of
the forum (just guessing here). What convinced me was the
occupation. Sounded like his kind of humour to add that little
hint. He is amusing himself, adding little hints here and there.
He seem to have a passion for film themes. Don't know it there
is any such here, though.

OK, rather good.

I have got nice private messages from "him" claiming that he is going to do other things and leave us alone. Can we believe that? I hope so.

Default Guinness? Harry?

I can tell you with 100% certainty that he would never touch it. Even if his life depended on it.

Me......that is a different story.

So unless Harry has another new nom de plume just to tweak me, I suggest that you guys might want to stop looking under every rock for a Commie. Or is that a rat?

It should be obvious what motif his new aliases are. You paranoid guys are going to end up looking like a fool if you keep up the witch hunt.

Which probably helps to make whatever point he was trying to make.

So......who is going to apologize to all the newbies you guys accidentally run off?

Commie? Rat? Never crossed my mind, but you know the guy,
so you should know, I guess.

That is not at all what I think. With his previous aliases, before
we know it was him hiding behind, he probably wanted to
prove something. With his latest aliases, I think it is just a game.
He gives us some hints and wants to see how long he can post
before somebody finds out it is him again. Why do I bother to
stop him? Well, I don't really. I have just happened to be the first
one to find out it is (most likely) Harry in two recent cases. I have
missed others. Maybe I am all wrong here. you know him, so
you should know, perhaps, if I am misinterpreting him entirely.
The Harry Haller I know from postings in this forum seems to
be clever guy with a good sense of humour, not someone who
would starts a large-scale plot with several different aliases
misbehaving. It would be interesting to hear his own view of
why he did what he did.

I deliberately wrote my first post in this thread in a way that
should not put anybody off, if I was mistaken. A real newcomer
would only have been puzzled or confused, and asked what
I meant.

Hi Guys,

I don't know who Harry is, and I don't know what you're all arguing about.

I DO sell scopes for a living, but I don't think this is the right time to say which ones. The natives don't feel too friendly.

I'd like to join this group. Sorry if I offended you by sounding too enthusiastic.

I'm going to post an amplifier question to the appropriate forum. If I get flamed, I'll retire and leave you all to it.

And yes, I do like Guinness.
