It's less of an issue.  For instance, could you have a slot in your closed storefront where a customer could just fill out an order form and slip it in, to be processed afterwards?  It's not so straightforward - there's quite a bit of debate on the matter.  Some see it as OK since you are not involved in any transaction on the sabbath.  If someone wants to shove an order in that's their business.  Others see that as a workaround of the issue - closed means closed basically.  (Either way, according to the second reason, they would still be involved in other Jew's transgression as even using a computer in the first place is a problem.)

 

Strictly speaking, Orthodox Jews are not even allowed to talk business on the Sabbath.  (In fact, one popular Sabbath song specifically points out how "thinking about it is okay, as is matchmaking.")

Same with the server if they let it take orders and wait on them.  No money changes hands and they're at home doing nothing

 

Or maybe it's just that the stick-to-the-letter-not-the-spirit sort of thing isn't as popular as I've been lead to believe.

OT Continuation... (Click to show)

 

I order from B&H mon-thurs, and adorama friday-sun (and on jewish holidays).

 

I find the sabbath thing ridiculous, but they seem to care about it (and found some way to reconcile it for themselves), so more power to them. 

 

 

Found earlier today - referring to USB cables:

I have an Angel cable (full solid 100% silver w/ FEP air-tube) from Audioquest and it is worth every penny.  These cables have their own sound signatures and are very, very distinctive. The difference is huge. Diamond (for USB) is a very good one too.  Be glad those only run around 700 USD. I paid nearly double, $1200 for my Angel.  If you have some money to spare be prepared to spend at least 200 or more if you want nice butter low end details and moderate highs.  If you want more and crisper highs (better treble extensions) with more details the solid silver is the key.

I wish I owned a Genesis haha. I spent a couple of months just browsing a genesis coupe forum, so I know quite a lot about it. That 3.8 engine sounds amazing. 
Unfortunately Puerto Rican GCs don't come with a LSD, even on the Track model. Which sucks, considering we have to pay more for it.
Gencoupe.com?
Well the 3.8 sounds amazing with that single exit exhaust :) Looks a little ricey though

John Quincy Adams.

 

We need a line of presidential headphones now.  The Washington, Jackson, Lincoln, and Teddy Roosevelt models will be the highlights for sure.

The Cleveland and Taft would be bass heavy and ponderous... I'd take the Truman bargain model though - the buck stops there. 

post #191 of 624

Off the top of my head:

 

D2000  by Taft - for bloated bass

ibuds by Hoover - they suck!

Monoprice by FDR -  the newest deal

ED10 by Eisenhower - I like treble spike

DT1350 portables by JFK - great for outdoor use, on trains or grassy knolls

HD700 by George Washington - we didn't chop down the treble peak

 

I wonder who Polk would endorse?

 

Jefferson thinks it doesn't matter which headphones you pick as all headphones are created to be equalized.

post #192 of 624

RS220 by Lincoln - The Great Emancipator.  From cables.

LCD-2 by Teddy Roosevelt - Speak softly and carry a big stick

DT48 by Jackson - Tough as Old Hickory

LCD-2r1 (final batch) by Harrison - Dead on Arrival

HD25-1 II by Taylor - Old Rough and Ready

 

Help me fill in the blank here.

Audio Technica by Clinton - define "neutral"

Audeze by GW Bush - mission accomplished 

HD650 by Wilson - Aggresive sound?  Bah!

JH13's by the combined facial hair of chester arthur and martin van buren - awesome
