MS has stopped developing the platform. That's OK with me; there are probably enough units built and unsold to last the rest of my life.

I liked the bits concerning Ken Burns and Frank Zappa.

I just bought a new laptop a few weeks ago to get immersed in the whole Windows 10 experience. My Windows phone is my first Win 10 device, and I like how it shares my calendar with my desktop. When I am doing a job on-site I'll put it in the calendar and it will be there when I do the billing on my desktop. The new laptop is meant to replace my home desktop and occasional work. I just returned from a week in DC and I love this laptop. It has a 14" touch screen,, it's light and the battery lasts all day. Bakery technology has really advanced in the last few years. I can fold the screen flat and it becomes a tablet. When I want to type I can unfold it and have a keyboard, and can still scroll the screen with a swipe of the finger. And I am going to put my stuff in "the cloud".

Thanks for sharing that. I'm going to try to make one of the shows, but the closest one is the day after Thanksgiving family weekend.

I did see them at the Chicago Amphitheater from the first row of the first balcony about the time of Larks Tongue in Aspic (mid-seventies) and it was fantastic.

Yeah, I forgot they let you buy them before they get them.

Have the specs for the 2018 Thunderbird been posted? Curious if it'll have the mini switches and exposed pole pickups like the 2015 model on the Gibson site?

Looks like CME bought more Gibson excess inventory.

Congrats on the bass, John. Can't beat that deal.

That deal can be beat by at least 10%. :mrgreen:

I think he would have more luck if he sweetens the deal by $100. P basses are a bit more in demand than EBs.

I  also own a 4 and 5 string 2014 EB bass. The red one I bought new, the gold 5 string I found on TB and my offer was accepted. If I didn't have these I would have bought one of the newer ones, I like it's features a lot.

Not that I needed another bass having recently received the Jack Casady 20th Anniversary bass. I need to start selling some I'm running out of space.

It was me. I made an offer, they emailed a counter which I accepted.

Actually, it wasn't me. They called me back and said someone on reverb.com paid before me, but he said they had more coming.
