I left this last line in to show everyone whom Mark was addressing in
particular in case anyone deleted this message previously.  Frankly, Mark, 
find your comments idiotic and hurtful.  If I don't want to get involved in
a particular topic I don't bother responding.  I'm hurt bad enough that I
was accused of saying something I did not say.  But even those I responded
to were light-hearted about the whole thing.  The above, however, is
inexcusable.  One of the points of having these chats involves debating &
controversy at times (and a little humor doesn't hurt if it's done 
I howled at Tim Nelson & especially Rich's messages).  If you think a
subject is too boring for you, delete the messages on your inbox and forget
about the whole thing.  Why must some people need to be taken by the hand?

Even as a joke, what is the point of this whole "invented" B.S.?  What does
that have to do with what we've been discussing?  You still don't 
what "innovation" means, even after a dictionary quote, but I said I wasn't
going to dwell on the subject anymore.  This after I thanked you publicly
for your earlier advice.

Oh, and to respond to that advice:  I was looking for a way to retain the
original stereo signal from the GR-33; I already have a TC G-Major to 
a new one.  I don't particularly go for Digitech other than the Whammy, but
would have been willing to buy something if it did the job I wanted.  My
personal taste, so, please, nobody bombard me with disagreements.  I'm not

And my advice to anyone here who obviously enjoys attacking people:  Read
messages a second time or so before you assume someone's insulting you.  If
you don't understand something, let them know.  I didn't join this chat 
to be a villain!

I want to believe that anyone who spends a lot of time working with and
discussing technology has at least a fairly high intelligence quotient.
This should include common sense.  It amazes me how many Wile E. Coyotes
there are out there.

Last time, this time for sure (mainly to punish you, Mark):
I did not attack the entire looping universe.  I made a comparison 
downloading sites by a few people who labelled their work "Soundscapes" and
noted they sounded more like Frippertronics.
I NEVER EVER said Robert Fripp (or anyone, for that matter) invented the
looping system (or anyTHING, for that matter).
The only thing I erred was misspelling Hedewa7 and I've already apologized.

Now, please, everyone:  GROW UP.  And try to show and understanding when
reading & communicating.

Good night all,
