Ho,

if there would a trophy for the first being back exist, I would have catched it, too. But being the first time to this meet and catch a trophy, wow, that ist a good start.
Thank you all guys for this wonderful day. I talked with many Empeggers and all are very nice.
So for you folks who had to stay at home: Yes, very sad, you missed something!

I am happy, but really tired, it's 3 a.m. here and now I go to bed. But I will sleep with a bright smile...

Rolf

What a great meet! I really am glad I decided to attend, I'm sure steve agrees as well. I've got my Rio Receiver working and also put my translucent buttons in. I think steve has already got V3 on his player!

Thanks a lot Rob, you did a cracking job and bent over backwards to help Steve and myself get there and back. We'll definately be back next year. This time with a car (hopefully take back some trophys! )...

No. You misunderstand. I was commenting about SonicBlue and the 2002 date. I am not bitter about it.

I am still hoping that it will appear in the beta section of the empeg.com "Latest Software" section eventually.

Given the photo (and someone does need a bit of focus or a capture of the file directly), it is still in alpha right now. Beta I am willing to deal with. Alpha is a little too cutting edge for me. The thought of uploading 140GB of data chills me somehow.

What's the point of naming an empeg "lab rat" if you aren't willing to run alpha software on it? That would seem to be the whole point...

I'd totally run alpha software, just to see what the new stuff looks like.

LabRat is specifically for my own experiments, typically trying out new hardware and drives. At the moment, that machine is my cloning master - my normal unit for this (hermit) is substituting for my car/office machine (traveller) that is on loan as a demonstration unit.

If I start doing anything that might involve data corruption, I would propagate that to the other players. Not that I wouldn't want to try it out, as long as I didn't risk blowing away all of my music copies in the process. I am currently building a fourth unit specifically for loan / demo purposes (unnamed as yet), but that is currently undergoing some hardware enhancements to bring it up to spec.

Kind of moot, though - the software is not up on the empeg site.

Hi folks,

Further to Andy's post, I'd like to thank Rob and the team for such an excellent meet.

I have fired up my freshly unpacked empeg and it works a treat. I do believe that I'm the luckiest man alive. There are now no excuses for me to lurk around in the sidelines.

Cheers,
Steve

Steve, are you the one with the 3.0 alpha 3 that they were talking about earlier?

So, you got a new empeg at the meet? Is this your first? If so, welcome! Yes, you are the luckiest man alive, along with all the other empeg owners (unless they are female, who rank as being the luckiest women alive).

Hi,

I wanna also say thanks to everybody to be there and share some great time together.....

Special thanks to Rob for all organisation stuff and giving me the red fascia...

Special thanks also to everyone giving me the votes to get the second price for the best professional installation.

I was never thinking about that, to get a trophy on my first empeg meeting.

Yes, definately a great thank you to all that showed up this year!

Also a very big thank you to Rob and Merrigan for putting up with us (hopefully your neighbours won't be too mad for too long...), and an extra one to Merrigan for providing the delicious Saturday lunch buffet and the accessories to the BBQ.

As the two years in a row Best Self Install winner I just didn't know what to say at the time, but: it means a lot to me that people liked it enough to vote for it. There were a lot of good installs to choose between, I know I had a hard time to cast my vote... (and no, I didn't vote for myself ) Thank you!

I'd also like to say a special thanks to Patrick (aka God) who, as always, gave a great presentation ("...so I had to develop this" [digging into a bag for another little electronic gizmo] ). For you that weren't there: a system for stereoscopic remote viewing, ultimately intended to go into a RC plane, giving you the "in-cockpit view" of the world, with superimposed display of aircraft attitude and some instrument readings.
The technology demonstrator (RC monster truck) was impressive - and fun!

Ditto on the thanks! Rob and the gang did a great job. If you missed it this year, start planning now for next year. Rob S. deserves many, many thanks and the earned title of "Cat Herder" for keeping folks moving in the right direction all weekend. Thanks Rob. We are not worthy!
