Hey, do what you do
On a completely unrelated note, I saw a guy driving around at midnight a few nights ago, with his headlights off and his Bose Triports on. Durrr? That's a guy who shouldn't do what he does IMO.
Oh, and if someone could point me to a guide on "how to use this forum" (i.e. editing profile, deleting lists, adding sigs... things of that nature) I would appreciate it as well. It doesn't have to necessarily be on this site, but whatever engine/application this particular forum uses.
First off, Welcome to Head-Fi, and sorry about your wallet!
Mad props to reading the entire thread, how long did that take? I only got to the hundredth page before posting, I believe. You also probably read my posts, so you'd know I'm not deeply $ invested yet, but I've enjoyed the research. And we all do like spending money on out audio, even if we don't always make the most logical choices Still not sure if I'm keeping or selling my accidental V-MODAs.
As for how to use this forum? Um, I think there is a sticky post about that, but here's some general tips: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Multi-quote: lower right hand buttons on a post for reply methods, I never got the multi-quote button to work on my iPad, so I write a reply to each quoted message, then copy-paste the whole thing with code into a previous post by invoking an edit. That's my effort to reduce my tendency to spam -_-
Subscriptions: there's a button to subscribe to a thread without posting, but if you do post it's added automatically. You can check your Subscriptions for updates by clicking the labeled link at the top-right of any forum page next to the search bar. The subscriptions page remembers which tab you were last looking at, so I leave it on Threads.
Signatures: next to the subscriptions link is a link with your username. Click that and scroll down down until you see the field to enter something about you. Most people list their gear for bragging rights but also so others know where you're coming from, and I put my music prefs there too. Contributers such as Mad Lust Envy, NamelessPFG, and ClieOS have their guides linked in their sigs to save people time in finding their guides and reviews.
Hope that helps!
PS: for NamelessPFG and everybody else I've bugged, I've discovered that Windows 7 Pro should be my go-to choice because the 32-bit Win XP emulation is more comprehensive than the Home version's backwards compatability. I may have to hold off on it till I'm ready to install my "final" CPU for this computer build since the cheaper OEM version ties itself to the MoBo & CPU after 3 days.
