"The overwhelming majority [of audiophiles] have very little knowledge, if any, about the most basic principles and operating characteristics of audio equipment. They often base their purchasing decisions on hearsay, and the preaching of media sages. Unfortunately, because of commercial considerations, much information is rooted in increasing revenue, not in assisting the audiophile. It seems as if the only requirements for becoming an "authority" in the world of audio is a keyboard."

-- Bruce Rozenblit of Transcendent Sound

I have often dreamed of melding a C4S and a GT3 for the ultimate winter rally car.

Sign me up for driving one too!

Having grown up in Montreal with loads of winter snow and not infrequent blizzards, I will take the winter rain in Vancouver any day without complaint. You don't have to shovel it. :)

I've spent time in the winter in Montreal, my absolute favorite city in North America, and can attest to its snowiness. But, I'll personally take snow over a cold rain anytime. Cold weather and rain is absolutely miserable. One of my favorite things is taking  along night walk on a snowy evening.

Ha... snowed in Michigan 2 weeks ago!

Yes, but it's long since melted, which is sad. Not having snow covering the ground in the Midwest in winter is incredibly depressing. The endless shades of black, brown and grey in the lifeless landscape make you want to go home and listen to Neil Young all night while drinking an entire bottle of bourbon and eventually be driven to play Russian Roulette!

I share your pain Doc. The comeback went about as well as Custer's did at The Little Big Horn :(

When the wind chill factor is below -20C, walking outside is anything but a joy. Nor is walking in the dirty slush when the snow melts. I'll take the rain, thank you. Montreal is a great city to visit and I do every summer. But I would never live there again because of the climate and the climate, i.e. the weather and the politics.

I've updated your reference.  Consider this a harsh reminder to expect the unexpected when you clear YT's data repository and it begins thinking for you.
