trouble is they don't necessarily take everything... Apart from compact flash and type 2 microdrive there are the various permutations of memory stick, memory stick pro, memory stick duo, magic gate and the permutations thereof, we now have mini sd and micro mmc to cater for (even more adaptors) as well as the full sized versions, let alone xd and the pretty obsolete smart media. Now we have transflash which is smaller than mini sd! I have sat in internet cafes next to people who brought along their own firewire and cardbus readers who could not download their data because they did not have the relevant slot or socket on the pc.

Hi Rikki,
it was a waste of time coming back judging from another thread
Hope things are all back to normal after hubby's long health troubles, and all the best for the New Year and future. Take care.

Hi Rikki and Alec,
I hope that you both had a great Christmas and that 2005 will be a better year than 2004 (Hope springs eternal).

Alec - your presence here on the forum is never a waste of time. The last go around is just an example of what you have to expect when dealing with thousands of people, some of which just like to "shoot from the hip".
Best Regards to all,
Walt

Hi Walt, all the best to you too. We'll see what Frankfurt brings in April - maybe the next tyros - but certainly not what would have been the fantastic KN8000

Hiya Alec
Great to have you back on this forum - I wonder what you've been busy getting to the bottom of and writing about for all our benefit, these past few months....something Yamaha related I'll be bound...?

Hi Alec,
you being back would never be a waste of time.
Hubby finally got out of hospital in August ( after seven months ) and he's finally on the mend.

Things are not quite back to normal, I actually sold my kn7. Don't think I ever got over the shock that there wouldn't be a KN8000. During all those months sitting round the hospital I became interested in computers , software synths & using OMB as a realtime arranger. I midied to my piano. I remembered having a conversation with you about what the future may hold ( just after the shock announcement about Technics). I ust jumped on the bandwagon early.

The one thing I really miss though, is the chit chat & the members on the Technics forum.

best wishes
Rikki

HI ALEC,
welcome back to the forum.
I don't think you have ever wasted your time here. I emphatically state that there is not a member in this forum, including this writer that has not learned something from you and the books you have published.
I know we have not always agreed but I certainly respect your tremendous knowledge and hope you will stay with us once again. We have a lot of newibes to teach and a few that already think they know it all to ALSO teach
Best to you and yours,

Hopefully you'll look into the Ketron stand to see if
there are any new SD or something coming up as well.

Really nice to see some of the "oldies" at the forum again

Happy playing.
