What's the deal with Ebay and Paypal these days?
I was just bumped into managed payments by eBay. I had no choice, but remarkably, after I was in managed payments the proceeds of one of my sales wound up in PayPal. As long as I get paid in the end, I suppose it works but clearly, funds were avai...

Karousel is a home run 
Can anyone recommend a printable label for vacuum tube boxes?
A brother p touch is very versatile. Once you get one you’ll be exploring “what can I label next?”

What did your system look like 30 years ago?
How many of us still has any of the gear we had 30 years ago?I still have my zerostat, but that’s about it. I’ve owned my turntable 23 years now- so my oldest piece of gear is a Marantz tuner. That’s either late 60’s or early 70’s (is there a Mara...

@mapman I remember the Harvey store on 17 quite well. It was on the northbound side and was pretty close where there’s now a Tesla dealer. I used to work in Hackensack so I passed Harvey 2X a day. Bought stuff from them over the years too! There a...
