I was joking, I do know what happened. Thed was guerrilla marketing aggressively. I was taking him to task for his performance claims, as I have done for years. I also have been admin\/moderating forums and groups for many years and know that when it's time to drop the hammer on someone you have history (online and in person, in this case) with... have another admin do it. :) Mark and I used to work for the same company and co-reported on a show once, btw.\n\n\nDue to the way Thed has acted toward me in the past, I asked around for someone to accompany me to me as a witness ( I did not want Thed making up any stories about our interaction, something he does, anyway :D) to my third SR show demo and Mark offered. We went to the room but the show barkers disappeared, "gone to lunch", we were told. Both of them, at the same time. Hmmm.... I came back later with one of my business partners and then reported on the exhibit. Post #21, for those interested.\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.avnirvana.com\/threads\/axpona-2017-official-show-report.217\/#post-2214\n\n\nWRT to the comment that the "power conditioner" shouldn't be switched on because the caps take time to drain- that's bullcrap! Anyone who has worked with tube equipment knows that the caps don't drain immediately and that if it's powered when the caps are still charged, no harm will come to it. Discharging them quickly would do more damage to the caps.
