Favorite Thing about This Time of Year


Recommended Posts

Golf, as well as Star Trek: Bridge Crew just released for HTC Vive/Oculus on PC, so finally, FINALLY! I can command a starship with 3 of my closest (or completely unknown) friends. It really feels like i'm on the bridge of a Starfleet flagship. (I have a chair that feels very much like a Trek Captains chair looks like it would)

It used to be, here in South Florida, that summer meant the tourists went home & we would get the courses to ourselves. Plus the rates drop. But here in Miami? There's no noticeable difference. It's still too many people in too small of an area & Miami does not have enough courses to serve the population. Many have closed & made into (more valuable) homes. 

The bright side? I am three hours from Key West. Go do the Duval Crawl!

Already bought water and canned food. Don't wait till people get crazy, right?

I agree.   I have a cousin that is severely affected by Harvey in Houston.   She was forced to evacuate.

Pros of this time of year:

End of summer means start of golf season for me. :-)

Also, "Labor Day" sales! Just bought two Alto TX-215 15" woofer 1100W self powered speakers and a Harbinger 2218S 18" 1500W from Guitar Center Live Audio. Clean. 3700 Watts of D-class power. I hooked up my projector and got awesome roaring movie theater quality sound with a 15 foot wide projection. Had to get a mixer to run XBR to the speakers. 1/4" jacks had way too much hum. XBR brought that down to about 80dB or more SN. Which was attributable to the HDMI projector ground connection. The distortion meter shows that the quality is past where normal people can hear. It's no Mirage OMD-28, but they are really hearty speakers I can even use outside.


The big downside is the kids are going back to school again. Going to miss the impromptu golf and other things my son and I do together now that he's off to University. I still have a daughter, but she's less "impromptu" than my son. We need to plan everything ahead.

Things I don't really miss is that Costco is gearing up for Christmas already?!?

The leaves, apples, pumpkins, and the empty golf courses on Sunday afternoons thanks to the NFL games.  The downside is that I know my golf season will be over in several weeks.

    • Two pros playing, and it was safer to be in the fairway they were playing rather than a parallel fairway.
    • A GEARS-that costs as much as a well outfitted SUV-is hardly something the average people can buy. Dude-I am with EriK - your responses have been highly disappointing. Manufacturers have missed things before. They are not always chasing what is best but what they can sell. This makes sense to me and I see what your friend is saying @iacas. I think the GCQuad will shoe dynamic lie angle-right? Yes-appears so: What We Measure | Foresight Sports Precision, Not Guesswork How We Measure Foresight Sports launch monitors use a combination of infrared object tracking and high-speed...
    • I don’t believe he ever said that.  He can defend himself, but I’m pretty sure he was simply saying improvements might be made with further research in this area as technology advances. Please don’t resort to hyperbole in the absence of valid points.
    • Hmmm. Actually it would be more accurate to say the FBI has been using DNA for years, but now average people can buy the same tools and use them to solve crimes at home. Not saying don't use GEARS for any number of swing investigations. It will provide information to the average golfer they otherwise would never have access to. But the idea that all the shaft and club OEMs have completely missed the mark on the idea of lie angle is far fetched.
    • How badly did Bryson play to lose 5&3 in a 12-hole match? He lost five of nine holes.
