Quote from: Harry on May 03, 2007, 02:08:30 PMNo, he is most certainly not weird, but young and learning.

Quote from: 71 dB on May 03, 2007, 12:55:39 PMSome of you think I am weird but I am very normal compared to this guy. He is active in a Finnish hometheatre forum. I keep his identity secret.- He has a 30" monitor of 4 million pixels for PC and TV programs. He watches it 15 hours a day. He watches the screen from the distance of 1-3 feet using special eye-classes. The rest 9 hours he sleeps, eats etc.- He leaves his apartment rarely. he has put foil in his windows. He can't see out from his apartment. He uses internet cameras to see what kind of weather is outside.- He does not work. He is retired for health reasons. He most probably worked in a TV station as an technician as he knows just about everything about TV technology. He is capable of recognising all kind of errors in picture quality. If even one pixel in the picture is wrong he gets almost an heart failure. - He has only one furniture, bed. He sits on it while watching his 30" monitor. His apartment is totally full of all kind of stuff, disassembled motorbikes, concrete sacks, old TV sets, wood, etc.- He records TV programs with his PCs all the time and watches the recordings in fast forward style. When one harddrive is full he buys a new one and puts the full harddrive in a closet. He has many Terabytes of TV programs in his harddrives. Between about 1980-2000 he used several VHS-recorders and claims to have recorded 200.000 tv-programs using 1000 VHS tapes over and over again. that's about 30 programs per day!- He has irregular bedtimes and he needs to wake up about every 15 minutes in order to start or end a recording. He does not program his PC to do this for him because he does not trust his gear.- He has severe media addiction. He has to record almost all available programs on free channels. This takes all his time and he hopes for the termination of all TV broadcasting so he could have a rest.- He claims that the minimum weight for a subwoofer unit is 300 kg (670 lbs). Otherwise the unit vibrates too much according to his words.- He is planning to build a small sound insulated cabin of concrete with supreme sound system for sound pressure levels up to 150 dBs (!) without bothering the neighbours. Hearing protector is a must inside the cabinet, of course but the bass frequencies would be sensed well with body.- He listens to the same song again and again in loop for many days before changing to a new song. He also claims to be authistic.- When he charges the battery of his cellphone he writes down the date and how many times the battery has been charged.- He can't enjoy nature outdoors. He said he'd need to use a video camera filming outdoors and watch the recording home on his 30" screen in order to enjoy the view.

Quote from: Harry on May 03, 2007, 02:19:30 PMO dear, Elgar my friend, count yourself lucky you are still 36. Out of my perspective you are still a puppy.And that is well meant.
Quote from: dtwilbanks on May 03, 2007, 02:40:43 PMHow Harry sees us.
Quote from: 71 dB on May 03, 2007, 03:23:27 PMDepressing......and this is how we see Harry (or do not see as he is under that CD pile).
Quote from: knight on May 03, 2007, 11:44:50 PM'Eccentric' is a long used euphemism by the British upper class to describe outright raving madness amongst their kind. It covered behaviour that would get the lower orders locked up, pronto.Mike
