Right ok, I am not sure what parts you are reading but ah and um is most certainly not my only response. I guess it’s a habit of mine. I write like I speak, I tend to type out the spaces in my train of thought. Perhaps it’s a bad habit, some people like it.
I would say too that my posts are typically rather long, well beyond um or ah. Quite verbose actually. In fact I would say that last post of blurbus de cradoo, that I would probably not have even read myself LOL. Although it is kinda interesting. Um, alright, I would have read it anyways, too curious not to.
The long story post area was clearly marked as such and no one forced you to read it. It was separated from the rest of the dribble for just such a reason, so you would have a choice to read it or tune it out. It was labeled off subject etc. after all. It even had an arrow pointing to it so no one would miss the bit about it being off topic and a bit of blather on something that happened to me. It was wrongly marked as a rant (rants are usually anger based and my post was not based on anger), it was really a story about something stupid that happened to me on the way to the forum LOL. It was sparked by the whole unpaid labor thing. I do not know what emotion I would assign to it, but anger is not one of them. Weirdness, or disgust in fellow man would be closer. ‘Weirgust’, there I am adding that to my dictionary.
A critique of my particular writing style does not help things either. Why you are personally offended by it, I am not sure. Are you a high school English teacher perhaps? Humm…
As to the Roon problem, I do not think you understand, the software (Roon) cannot find any devices including system, core, etc. nothing, it is a blank page. Again it says it cannot find any hardware devices. That does not mean just the Mytek, it means, Mac’s CoreAudio, the Roon Core, the Midi control, Nothing, Zero. It does not remember one piece of audio hardware on the machine. It (Roon) has ‘forgotten’ them all. Just from closing the program and opening it up again.
It has nothing to do with the Mytek there are no problems with the Brooklyn DAC+ It works impeccably in all my other programs. This is a Roon software problem. Not a cable. Not a DAC’s firmware. It is the Roon’s software entirely. I would bet my left one on it. This thing has more bugs than a forest. The whole jiggle the cable while standing on your head and rubbing your tummy, is not going to work here.
Sorry, I do appreciate your attempts to help however.
I am also sorry you are offended by the way I write. I am told by my professors that I have a wonderful style of writing. They enjoy reading my essays and papers. I don’t think they would say so if it wasn’t true. I don’t know any professors who give out praise to butter up a student (maybe they think I will donate a wing or something LOL). Oh and before you think you have some young kid you can push around, I have returned to college quite late in life.
Anyway I suppose there is no actual fix for this problem. The programmers probably all work on Windows and so they would not be fazed by a reboot. Whereas in Apple land a reboot is like being kicked in the nether regions. I suppose they will eventually release a build that addresses how the program deals with the actuation/acuzation and release of the hardware.
