Hey, I resemble that remark (except the cargo shorts, thankfully... and at some point the PT will just be a few strands coming out of the back of my neck with recession).

Besides, see my sub-subject above... I have a euro module now, too (should inoculate me against further aging... that and watching The Walking Dead).

cargo pants are superior pants with superior capabilities to your inferior unterpants

unterpants... lol.

Make that two euro modules... just received my $60 shipped .mix.

It's so cute(!) and indeed does have a dotcom power header, as I was wondering about in another thread.

Received secret info that the E330 can do 15V bipolar and that there is at least one MOTM to euro adapter in the wild for powering ER at 15V bi.

Some 5U tech is apparently just in hiding.

The one time I went to knobcon I wore cargo shorts and no-one noticed.

Of course I was the only one with a big-ass 5U modular there.

Kinda looks like paults... I'd take cargos over a lady purse any day (sorry, that's not even a man bag).

Actually, I'd probably wear over-pocketed lower garments if I had any... tend to go for minimal attire: jeans, solid-color tees with no images or words, etc.

I do wear socks with sandals on occasion for extra 5U street cred, though.

Oh, I also have a real-deal photojournalist's vest... hardly ever wear it anymore, but it does have lots of pockets (actually used to use it for live sound/recording jobs).

Euro-Negan update: $25 shipped EMW CV/Trigger module arriving tomorrow and vintage ASys modules early next week (all for my euro-CP project, and therefore on-topic).

I've decided CP will probably outlive full-height 5U like post-atomic cockroaches.

Lastly, I hear big asses are in... which is good (I don't have one, but have been told I am one).

You need to get back for 2018! I felt weird being the only non-vendor with a 5U system last year.

I wore cargo pants through 2013, but I feel like my liberal arts degree and complete lack of engineering/electrician knowledge excludes me from the 5U Club for life. :lol:
