I think it is kinda like what happens in a floppy disc except it is a lot floppier.

    All this happens almost as quick as instantaneously... once the tubes warm up.

    I don't know how they do it all nowadays, but the cassettes were a lot more slicker a setup than a record on a record player was.
    Sounds complicated. You old fogey's. Nowadays we just hit a button on the iPhone and it starts recording. Cassette sounds like stone age stuff to me.

    Banjos are kinda stoneageish too, but I think the right banjo music might run a shiver through a trespasser.

    Why not some kind of sign that warns of your mining operation and a possible deadly lead and copper contamination to anyone entering your property without permission?

    This also begs the question: How many of the younger crowd understands the significance of the Banjo music referred to.

    Quite a few I would guess. Far more interwebz memes about Banjo music than cassette players.

    That hurt. <Smile> The cassettes were long before that music. 8-track or the prior 4-track tapes, even fewer understand. For those of us with a few years, we might also remember back when a record player, in the car, was the first selectable music, when the AM radio was still an option. It was many years before even the Muncie (???) 4-track.

    I'm just kidding about the cassettes anyways. I was really the cd generation (I'm either on the very high end of the Millenial age group or a year over it, depending on who defines it). But because I was too cheap to buy cd's, I used to have a cassette ready in the right spot on the tape to record a song I liked when it came on the radio. When I heard the first notes I would dash over to the radio and hit play and record at the same time to catch the song so I could listen to it in my Walkman later on. This was about 5-7 years before Napster. And then my whole world changed...

    This is the sign that ended up nailed to the pine tree out near our road, just after a visit from one of our LHBA friends. The wind blew it down and I better nailed it back up. It is still there and seems to do the job.

    Jumping on the rattlesnake suggestion above.

    Official looking sign: "Rattlesnake deliveries at south gate"

    Handwritten sign: DON'T JUST DROP THEM HERE LIKE YOU DID LAST TIME!

    Does the Log Home Builders Association still sell no trespassing signs?
