OK guys I'm a bit behind. Had a call from our friends from Arizona and they are over for a visit.

So I am tidying & vacuuming instead of cutting & glueing Wish they had told me before they left - I'm in love with the ipad mini and the exchange rate is such I could have gotten a discounted one!

Depending on the time they go home tonight I may be able to get some paper cut up.

Um James? You show U.K., your friends are coming over from Arizona, and they are leaving tonight? Man, you're a brutal host. Remind me not to visit during speaker building season.

BTW I would LOVE to have you for a speaker building session I could introduce you to the local ale...........

I always use the fortuitous $/ ratio to stock up. She works for an airline so they get tickets at random times and take whatever random opportunities are available to visit his family as he's a Sussex local boy.

We call him Forrest Gump - he runs lots and goes for a 10-15 mile trot for the hell of it He came in 15th in the 2011 Brighton Marathon at 2:45:30, 2nd in the veteren mens group 45-49 (beaten by a pro club runner). He gets sent running shoes by various companies becasue the trails he runs in the desert are ideal for 'extreme testing'! He loves coming home to run in the rain

Oh and Cal, dont forget to bring an Apple product........and I don't mean cider

Would your 180? multicells fit in the overhead?

Need a bigger plane. I could bring the 288 tweeters though. They're only 20lbs. a pop.

Thats hand luggage then!!

I used to take ALL my camera gear in the overhead. One bag designed to fit in the little frame measurement thingy had 2 pro bodies, 5 lenses from 12mm-400mm, a Mamiya 6x7 medium format body, 1 lens, 2 film backs, 1 polaroid back, 2 flashes, a tripod, my 17" macbook pro and an external hard drive.

It was a struggle to stand up straight and look like it was light

Haha!
I did the same thing on the way back from visiting my sister in Australia.
The hand luggage did actually weigh more than the bags I put in the cargo hold.
was a bit of a struggle to stand straight and trying to look like it was really light.

When I visit my mother in Berlin I put my stuff in a huge bag that doesn't weigh anything but due to its size it goes on the plane last and comes out first on a separate carousel. I usually leave the airport when the other passengers are still waiting for their luggage to come through!

Ok this is proving harder than expected.

I'm cutting matte board first and getting accurate marks for cutting is going to have to be done on a rounded up by mm basis. In order to get a close to uniform as I can I'll make one guide from matte board and then use that as a template to cut cartridge paper. If this works I think I'll see about getting a metal/plastic template laser/cnc cut (for accuracy) with my final horn design

This is what I'm using for the test

rounded from centre distances (mm)
