"The Lab"

I'm here guys. Things have been up in the air recently. I did my fair share of golfing this summer (trying to get as much in before baby was born). My wife and I had our baby girl. We named her Ivy Win (Chicago Cubs inspired, haha). Shes healthy, but she is very colicky. She cries for hours on end especially in the afternoon, which is when I get home from work. so ya, it's been rough. Even considering, she's still a blessing.

On top of that, in August we got almost 18 inches of rain over the course of two days. It caused major flooding in the land of Cheese and Beer, including my basement (wasn't horrible, but enough to do some damage). in I'm actually starting to get back into the Head-Fi scene.

Speaking of which, here is a link to my most recent review:


Cries for hours you say, seems like you got a new way to test IEM isolation.

As one with a 24 year old and a 19 year old (the oldest one was REALLY colicky), I miss lots of things about them growing up, but the colicky days with the eldest is not one of them!

Guys, it can be a living hell. We already are doing the gripe water and gas drop and it is helping, but it got to the point that she'd cry from 4pm to 10pm. Unreal!

It got so bad a couple times I had to just put her down and walk away. I am taking a medication for anxiety and have even contemplated therapy for it. Good news is it's at least starting to improve, and with how poorly I've handled it my wife is doing a lot of the work.

Remember it well-my daughter reduced a tough as nails, very experienced Russian Baby Sitter ("leave her vit me, Vill be NO PROBLEM) to tears!
Nope, don't miss that one bit!

(as reassurance, it does pass, and my older daughter is a lovely woman now; though she is a bit fussy at times...)

Glad to hear.

The other night I'm holding the baby while she screamed like I was stabbing her to death. I looked at my wife and said "LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE, ONLY 17 3/4 MORE YEARS OF THIS SCHIIT"

Needless to say, she wasn't amused...

Don't know if this helps or hurts, but generally it stops by 3-4 months of age...

Were did you get those rings? I have a HE-400i and a HE-400S on order and some of those rings would be nice. Thanks in advance :)

Found the project for the rings here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1784520
Found someone to print them for me here: https://www.3dhubs.com
My only regret is I didn't find out about 3D Hubs sooner - I live in the middle of nowhere so there's no such thing as a local 3d printer

Nice choice on the chocolate orange.

I do like my chocolate oranges

Funnily enough, I am partial to the odd dog or two.

I had my eye on a good pre-owned second dog at a bargain price on Black-Friday sale.

But on second thoughts, one never really knows what might turn up when that delivery person knocks on your door on Saturday morning! :ksc75smile:

P.S. dog-owners, never give your dog any chocolate as it will likely kill them!
