Happy New Year

Every year is tinged with gladness and sadness - some more than others. Personally, I have done some wonderful things for others, and they for me. A high was assisting in an operation which ultimately helped a deaf child to hear, via a cochlear implant. My music training camps have launched many young hopefuls to find their mojo.

There were many other highs, but also some lows - not for me, but for many of the families whom I counselled after losing everything to fire or flood, or who had to simply walk off their land due to drought. It's weird, but what I do is attempt to make others bear the brunt of their destiny easier and, mostly, I enjoy it - not the angst, but providing help. I have also set up a music foundation which had helped many to follow their dreams.

Recently, Karma smacked me in the face. I learnt, for the second time, that I had cancer. Awkward, not desirable, but, as we say in Australia, "****** happens". After the initial "OMG" moment, I took stock of my life. Things changed. It is a little more difficult to swallow, and my beloved red wine is a no no. (bugger). However, I have the love and support of my beautiful kids, and, with a lot of meditation (I don't do chemo) life will proceed until it doesn't.

Sorry for the maudlin. I have been a part of this forum since (about) 2000, and I would love to make it to 2020 (at least). I hope I have helped some, and also empathised with some of you who needed it. We are here because we love good music. I have spent a goodly amount of money on amazing sound systems, and since discovering Ots, it has been an integral part of my music systems ever since. I love it, I promote it at every opportunity, and I recommend that you all do the same.

All this preamle is to wish every one on this forum at least on great opportunity in 2018, AKA Happy New Year.

Sending positive thoughts to you Milky, as a good friend of mine Mike Peters from The Alarm said, each time he was diagnosed (3 times now) ...

You can please some of the people some of the time, all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, but you can never please all of the people all of the time.

Belated Happy New Year! May 2018 be a great year, though so far it's off to a very cold start, I have about 19 Inches of snow on the ground and single digit temps around the Lake Erie area.

My thoughts also go out to you Milky, what ever you did for bout #1 I pray will work for you with #2, take care.
Just an ordinary average guy, who built an ordinary average computer, and uses it to play some ordinary average music, using a very extraordinary and extremely above average software called OtsAV. Which gives an ordinary average person, some extraordinary and  better than average multimedia enjoyment, to supplement an otherwise ordinary average lifestyle.
