....when a person starts a thread about a problem they are having, if they would describe what they are working on.  Just saying that "I am working on a Model XYZ and it is weak on one channel" does not give much information.  Would it not be better to state something like" I am working on an ACME model XYZ Super Whizzbang AM-FM Stereo receiver, circa 1965.  It has been fully recapped, resistors checked and changed, bias checked, tubes tested and the quad of 6550's replaced.  I am running a pair of ACME Super Boom speakers with 4" tweeters and 18" woofers.  This unit appears to be weak on the left channel"  like that.  This way, anyone desiring to respond to the post will not feel like an idiot giving advice how to fix a tv when the OP is actually working on a stereo.  Everyone reading the post will know what is going on and can learn and/or follow along.  Lots of times, I don't even know what a Model XYZ is.  What say you all?

(Note. ACME is the registered trademard of the Roadrunner and Wiley Coyote and cannot be used, copied or broadcast without the express written permission of the Roadrunner. Good luck getting that.)

That would be a good topic for a sticky note.

While we're on the subject, I have a radio that ain't working right. Can you tell me what I gotta do to fix it? Thanks!

Seriously though, yeah, I try to give all that background stuff, but sometimes I forget something, too.

Hmm. Mention it to Mezlaw. I'll bet if he's got time, he'll do it for you.

Andy Griffith and a young Corporal Klinger (jamie Farr). I had never seen that movie. Thanks for sharing, 75. That's kinda what I am talking about. I will run this by MR MEZ, Bill. Thanks.

If you do make up a sticky along that line, "Before you post a question, read this" could make a good title. That movie was released in 1958. Farr had already appeared in "Blackboard Jungle" in 1955, credited as Jameel Farrah.

I posted a plea to MR MEZ on the moderator's board. I might see could I rent that movie. I would look nice on an old B & W tv set.

Another great movie was "They call me Mr. Tibbs".
Or, a great color one was "To Sir, with Love".That one was done in late sities. That's why I mention that it was filmed in color.
