Hey, Happy New Year there, Paul!. It's 0730 on New Years day here. I was on call last night, so there was no partying for me. Had to go and pull the Mains fuse on a house last night, where the people had the stereo turned way up and locked all the doors in the house. The police and the neighbours were sick of the noise, so off went the stereo, the lights, everything!. This was at 0200 this morning, but apart from that, I think that it was pretty quiet over here, no drunken riots for a change. Anyone make any New Years resolutions last night?. I gave up making them years ago. I don't go back to work until Monday, so I'm just going to sit back and put my feet up, until then, I think. Take care everyone.

Sven, Everything went quiet, after the fuse was removed, much to the relief of most of the street. If anyone had have emerged from the building, they probably would have been arrested. But everybody just went back to bed, me included. How you can run a stereo at that volume for 6-7 hours and not burn out the power amp, is beyond me. The fuse is still in the back of my truck and I'll be going to put it back in later today, when hopefully everyone has "come down" after thier little party. Sven, in your last posting, you mentioned "Cattle pens?", I thought that New York City was zoned Urban, not Rural!

I just started a New Years' thread over in the General section thinking I was first this year. Ah, behind again ...
Not much exciting for me this year, just some relaxing with friends.
Happy New Years to all!
Here's a link to info on Celebration in Times Square New York City. The Ball Fact Sheet has some interesting info and a PDF file showing some construction specs: http://www.timessquarebid.org/new_year/
