Nope, these aren't cordless... No idea what they'd cost. How much dancing are you planning to do while wearing headphones, anyway?


Also... do you happen to know when/where the first Sarajevo link-up was?

Most certainly.

Wonder if I'll be at 57,000 by next weekend.

Ah, OK, I thought you'd said yours were. I was thinking cordless would be damn handy for when I'm cooking or doing dishes or whatever, but reviews seem to indicate that cordless don't have quite the same sound quality and are fairly expensive. I want to make sure I get good headphones, though, so I'm doing a bit of looking first before buying.

Uhh ... I DID. Might've been at one of the Italian concerts in early July 1993.

We'd already established that... But they played five different places in Italy and I don't want to have to DL all those shows ... u2gigs.com and Wikipedia have both phailed us...

OK, the earliest Sarajevo satellite link-up in my "Sarajevo" file is 18 July 1993, Bologna. I think it's the first but let me just make 100% sure of that.

Yeah, I think Bologna was first. It sounds right anyway. I'd have to dig up a bunch of DVDs to see if it's on anything earlier, but I'm pretty sure I would have copied anything earlier to my "Sarajevo" file (I was going to make a CD of the link-ups for a lecturer I had, since Eastern Europe was one of his fields, but the sound quality was shit and I never got around to it).

I do? Do I have to go dig up my data DVDs? Because I'm happy sitting here, you know.

you fail because you didn't even KNEW it was Bologna... and you're supposed to be our walking U2 encyclopedia?


at least I knew the place, just not the date... and it would be faster to check on the sarajevo documentary..
