    Clearly you should have been an astrophysicist. Time speeding up, or is it slowing down?
  2. I'm sure I know that episode of Father Ted you have in mind - something to do with Cows as I recall. Congratulations on the birth of your heir.

    best class d amp

    Check out Wyred4Sound. Reputable and popular American manufacturer. They make Class D Amplifiers. I have a few of their products, though not an amp, and am impressed.

    A BIG ASK! - Help Required

    My style: I would send him an email stating the bare facts and asking his input. Be extremely polite, do not directly threaten, and end with something like ... 'may I get back to you again in about a week?' So a sort of one step at a time approach. As 'haggis says he may well shift the blame but wait and see.

    Any experiences/photos of veneering to share?

    There is no way I would be veneering £1000 boxes. I wonder if a little wood filler would do. I have worked a lot with recycled timber and fillers just do the job. One curious thing is that is is not actually necessary to find the perfect match. I have a table in my office where I have actually used a dark filler (think something like faux mahogany) on a light coloured timber (kauri). As an aside, and I'm not sure this would work for speakers, I saw someone restore a wooden table with bright coloured fillers; bottle green and scarlet. It made a real feature of the of the 'defects'. Another person used a black filler and that looked good too.
