It will be!

The diyAudio forums have been a vital source of support and information about the Tubelab SE and the Simple SE. The only problem has been the fact that this information has been scattered across hundreds of threads, making things somewhat hard to find. This results in multiple threads discussing essentially the same question.

I get email, lots of email. Sometimes I get 20 to 50 emails a day. I have a full time engineering job that often has me at work until 7 or 8 PM. Tubelab email is forbidden at work. It has become impossible to answer all of the email even if I do nothing else. Much of the email asks the same questions, often "how do I order a board?"

It is no secret that my web site can't keep up with constantly changing things like the current parts lists for my boards. Microsoft's (and most web hosting companies) recent decision to discontinue support for the ancient Front Page Extensions (which my site needs) has crippled my web site and prevented my posting of the Simple P-P manual or any changes to the web site that alters its navigational structure.

The operators of diyAudio have offered me this space for the Tubelab forum for a reasonable fee, so I have agreed to try it for a period of one year. This forum will be here for 2010. If it helps the organization of Tubelab or reduces my workload, it will continue.

It is my plan to move much of the Tubelab support and dynamic information to this forum. Many current Tubelab related threads in the tube forum may move here. Many of the topics that generate the most email will get threads here. The Tubelab web site is currently being rebuilt in a different web authoring program. It will be smaller and simpler than the current site at first, but I have a lot of new information that hasn't been posted, like the Simple P-P.

Neat. How can we help with the process? Can threads be easily moved from the Tubes / Valves forum into the Tubelab forum? Should there be some kind of sticky at the top of the Tubelab forum where we can paste links to threads we think should be moved?

How can people be encouraged to stop posting new Tubelab related threads in the Tubes / Valves forum, and put them here instead?

The operators of diyAudio and maybe some of the moderators are the only ones who can do this. Jason (the guy who runs the place) has asked me for a list of the threads to move. I have not even had the time to start searching the forums to find the pertinent threads. So, you (collectively) can help. I am going to start a thread that asks for suggestions. Please list the threads that you want moved and I will compile the list and forward it on. Conversely if there are any threads that you strongly believe should NOT be moved here, let be know too.

I am supposed to have the ability to post into the sticky area at the top of my forum and basic moderator capability over it, but I don't yet. Then, I haven't paid for it yet! For now we can use the new thread. Once the move has occurred, I will purge the thread.

It is here:

I have put links to this forum on my web page. There will be links added to the assembly manual of all of the PC boards with the next update. I will post a reminder thread to the tubes section and update it periodically.

I don't suggest or expect to migrate all of my activities to this forum. Just the activities related to supporting the PC boards and building amplifiers with them. The Tubes / Valves forum is a valuable place for information exchange and developing new ideas.


I have been blessed with the ability to visualize a circuit in my head and build it with out even drawing a schematic. To many peoples amazement they usually work. This goes for simple tube amps, and complex things like cell phones. It is probably why I still have my job, but unfortunately it doesn't extend to web design, software, or even simple organizational skills.

This forum is no exception. I am trying this as an experiment for one year. It is an attempt at simplifying the chaos that my web site has become and to reduce my email time by moving much of the support here. I really want to have more tube time, and less computer time!


If you have any suggestions for the forum or the web site, feel free to post them here.
