1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    I'm guessing they paid him a large amount of money and he developed and delivered the design for them.

    Sounds familiar somehow? apart from the delivered bit...

    That's not strictly right though is it?

    We paid him to develop the design for Stack

    Maybe the website should read

    ...Achieving true phase accuracy was John Westlake’s main focus, when designing the LINK II with the help of the disgruntled investors in the MDAC2 project and detox....

    And so have I in the following order Hugo 1, Pro-Ject S2 and Teak nt-505. Sold the Hugo. Have been looking at Discrete DAC options lately, but do not like the prices of what I want.

    Just one post. He’s asking haw many people still want a stand-alone detox! Still hasn’t named the company he is working with.

    Why is he asking on FB only?.

    That’s his preferred platform. It’s a closed group which means he can exclude ‘troublemakers’.

    Perhaps the most succinct response was along the lines of “No, concentrate on a single project, the MDAC”.

    I wonder if we’ll have a party when the wait hits ten years?

    I am glad someone has called him out to stop him drifting yet again, he seems determined to come up with other projects that provide him with an excuse to delay the MDAC2. If we have a party, I suggest Berlin.

    Prague would be better - I know a good Indian restaurant + a very, very good brewery/pub. John could pop by with his latest detour in hifi.

    Those who have been following this drama know that there is only one suitable location for the celebration- Munich.

    I suspect one in an alternative universe might be the best bet, one where procrastination was never invented.

    I guess, it is my turn to ask is there any update report anywhere?

    It’s like the myth of Prometheus only instead of having our liver pecked out by an eagle we have to return here to ask about progress.

    Around ten days ago John was off to spend two weeks with the production vendor, so I'll be checking for an update at the end of next week or thereabouts.
