    There is quite a lot of bullshit though. Can't really deny that. But that's true of everything these days.

    I guess that anyone who goes to the trouble we do to assemble a hi-fi system, considered as 'fit' to reproduce recorded music, "nerdy" is arguably an apt description.

    However, I'm still not comfortable with that word, as it conjures up images of a buck-toothed, big-eared bespectacled geek, with lank unkept hair, BO issues and dreadful dress sense, still living with his mother in Manchester, with no friends and penchant for buggery....

    ....all the things I'm NOT and DON'T!

    Having met you I would only rank you as slightly odd. Actually, maybe a bit odder than that. Who else would be nuts enough to organise MiBO???

    Likeable though. Yes - very likeably slightly odd+

    I have a lot of stuff delivered to work and quiet often whip my valves out to show the girls in the office. They smile weakly and just think I'm a nasty old man.

    Why is it that claiming innocence to all of this makes me suspect that in fact you might actually behind the scenes be quite guilty?

    I'm guilty of converting normal people into absolute Apogee nutcases.

    Ha - funnily enough, the mental picture I'd formed in my head was one of you!
