Will give you an idea of what I have.

If there is anything you need clarification of, just ask.
No software is for sale.

This is Urgent!!!!
Give me a realistic offer. I'll have a full price list in a week.

Just thought I would ask here first since you guys all know who I am.

LEX

Edit: In about a week (maybe by Friday), anyone interested will go through my attorney for sale and transfer.

Lex,

The link you give goes to the last page of the thread..... at least for me.

This link goes to the page that shows all the pix of your studio/components.
http://www.soundsonline-forums.com/showthread.php?t=5230

Sounds like some pretty bad news, and I'm very sad to hear it, though I don't know the full extent.

I'm going to shoot you a PM of something a friend of mine went through and a very important aspect of how he handled it that helped him A LOT.

Good luck,
-Paul

I cleaned out some of my inbox for room.

I am disassembling as we speak. My goal is to have everything photographed with discritions. by Friday afternoon.

All will be put in a PDF.
I am getting ride of 4 of the AMD slave Shuttle systems. I'd like to keep them complete (no parting).

The only thing that will be missing will be the installed libraries. They are all Xp32 SP2.
More details on that a the end of the week.

I fixed it. It iwas because I set the forum to show the newest post first, so the original post is on the last page.

Hope everything is fine... RE: the sale, you could also post it over at the Gearsluz classifieds as well since there are folks over there who would be interested....just an idea.

Gear slutz is a good idea. Your hardware will go faster there.

LEX
04-01-2009, 10:19 PM
I will, but only once in the hands of my attorney.

That is why I started here. You guys know me. Thought I would offer up and see what can go quicker.

Once it is with my attorney, I am not going to be involved in the sale anymore.

Its 11:59 PST here in LA.

Gotcha! April Fools!

I didn't think I'd get a bite, so I had to play it further. I didn't think it would work.
I didn't get as many as I wanted.

Everything is fine and thanks for being concerned. Sorry if anyone got over paniced or got to into it and started emailing people.

I was having some troubles with SD2 Pro Disk, but it was the DVD drive. So I was waiting on library transfer over the network.
SD2 Pro won't find the samples though.

LOL!

Thanks for playing! I think I may have played too late! Most probably expected it.

Ha ha - that's a good one LEX. Reading just page one, got me a little worried - sounded very much like a bankruptcy / going out of business sale. I would have put in a bid for the speakers btw.

You mean you had to sell your organs to pay for your studio equipment? That's terrible, Allan! The economic recession must have hit you really hard... :p

Thanks. I guess you guys would have put me to work. :)

Might have been fun. I'll keep that in mind. Only one need. Gotta be able to bring my dog Frank.

I think you would probably want to reconsider the porta potty.

I probably would have destroyed any and all use of Studio 3.
If you move it outside, trees will die and your neighbors will move. You'd probably have to consider renting a wind machine to blow it AWAY from the studio, or the paint will peel!

Can't believe I got so many so late in the day. My only April Fool's that ever worked.

Still can't get SD2 Pro for find the samples. :(

Yeah yeah - listen to you. Yesterday you said, "I would have gotten more if...." lol.

What!? You cant make SD2 find the samples? Even with the latest version that was released?! Its almost fool proof. (oh - wait!) :D

In my garage waiting to be cleaned and waxed(Zaino'ed) I don't use wax. Project Weekend!

Though, this year is a BIG, BIG cleaning. Takes 2 days. I will be sanding the clear coat to remove minor scratches on the car.

The Vette has one of the hardest and thickest clear coats in the world. So it really takes time to sand down.
That will be a Memorial DAy weekend task.

If you really want to treat your car right buy some FW-1. I know a guy that works at the race track that sells it and uses it on formula 1 cars. Its quite amazing and leaves a finish like no other. Problem is its better than any wax. If you put a car cover on your car it will keep sliding off.

Well, unfortunately, it isn't as good as it seems. Not like Zaino.
The difference is, wax covers. Zaino bonds with the paint and protects it.

This is why after 3 years, people ask me if I just bought it.

Also, with wax, I have to worry about "staining" the seals if I over wax. Not with Zaino. It doesn't stain.

I cover the car. It is like glass. Though I have a double cover that is cut specifically for the car. 600 dollar cover.
1 does half what I need. The other does the rest. No one made a cover that did it all.

Just think of its fit like this. A wet suit for the car.

Unless it is this:

Not going back to wax. Plus at 13k, well.

ACtually, if it is waxed, it is 13k. He has some really rare carnuba wax that wardens harder than concrete.
But he is the only one who has it.

Guess if you have a Bugatti, you can afford it. At 12k just to replace the tires.

There are plenty of things you can sell. Blood, sperm/eggs, hair ...

I also heard that nude models for artists can make some big bucks. The lowest rate I've heard for one is $50/hour ...
