Proffski you need to get out more and get a life. The mags called what hifi sound and VISION  MOTD is VISION if i am not mistaken.  

Well, this sounds like it is going to be good for those who love it. I hope that you will keep us updated, especially if there is going to be any 50th anniversary celebrations happening.

 

New technologies mean that there are going to be more people who can read favorite sports than there ever were in the past.
