That's like taking all of the niche forums and topics (vogons, VCF, EEVBlog Forum, VSF, gearslutz, geekhack etc etc etc) and rolling it all into one with each member on here knowing all of these topics and switching between them nonchalantly on the fly. I've never in my life switched from discussing OS/400 to DX7s and JV-1080s, nor did I think it was possible.
Lets roll over some of my other hobbies while we're at it:
Cars (I do all the work on my Miata)
parkour (I suck at it though as I'm the only tracer within 30 miles)
I speak three languages besides English: Chinese, Japanese and some Portugeuse
My Miata smells like petrol today because I replaced the fuel pump. FML.
So yeah, I'm a varied interest man.

I think the IMFC even needs the elusive -12V ISA rail, which I have no idea how it differs from "+12v" as they're both... 12v. I like that red screen, it's almost like it was deliberately chosen to be the opposite of the MT-32.
Nice! I have a PSR-36, PSS-470, and my DX7 currently. I want a PSR-32, a few early analog Casios, and the Yamaha MK-100.
I did pick up a BOSS-532 mixer recently. Nice, for a mixer that uses SmartMedia.
