Before there was THE BIG IDEA, there was a little one ....... "in here" ?

In the beginning - a thought "it just was",

(but in it's long journey - it got BIGGER "because") ?

Title:
In the beginning - a thought "it just was", 
(but in it's long journey - it got BIGGER "because");
?

In the beginning, there was an simple idea,
It was very subtle, quiet and "full of fear";
:
Yet it began to build up, becoming at long last,
ON A BIG IDEA (my page) - yet disappeared fast.
?

Where did it go - this creator's page, he did scream,
For he never gave it a thought (as it would seem);
:
That the idea he'd built upon this earlier website.?
Had simply vanished (during an upgrade) one night.
!

And thus - after much anguish, search and thought,
Everything written, had apparently become naught;
:
However in searching - "this showcase" ? He did find.
And so a poem he wrote (& he hopes you don't mind);
:

As nowhere in here, no matter wherever he searched,
He couldn't discover "any other profiles", to research;
?
Until he realised - that none of them can ever be seen.
Until they too discover, only a showcase “will redeem”;
:

So once again the creator/s (whoever) can thus now be found
Be they musician, painter, decorator, or a miner underground;
.
As until you can "showcase", by writing a little ditty (or story),
Your old profile will remain lost - under a cloud of past glory;
!

So, please remember to check out - who wrote "this strange poem".
Because I wrote it, so that I can still (maybe) become well known;
:
Merry Christmas for 2015, to past and present, (at The Big Idea),
May you have a safe and extremely satisfying: “brand new year”

UPDATE: The same goes now, for all at the BIG IDEA
EIGHT YEARS have past & we're at the end of the 2,023 year.
 

Technical Information: 

Just a thought in 1965 (that began "another small idea"), 
Which could easily outgrow itself (if helped by someone in here);
:
An old analogue "surround sound system", 
That completely alters one's understanding of "musical atmosphere";

As it is - simplicity itself, even though it's quite complex,
Taking two channel stereo (info) into many multiple channels, (oh yes);
:
Which could alter the way everyone "plays with their sound",
Earning good profits for other New Zealanders (I must confess);
:

Why pay big overseas consortiums, to deprive you of your money,
For an inferior sound (which is) created “virtually”?;
:
When a few New Zealander entrepreneurs, with visions for success,
Could assist another one, to “set everyone's music totally free”;
:
If a twelve year old boy, in an "old cow byre" (in 1965),
Could make sweet music - with NO SWEET SPOT in it's way;
:
& Who has tested and made these (by hand) over the years;
Plus has made a few videos on YouTube - “just so he could say”;
:

I can make these by hand, with no (special) highly technical "digital" knowledge,
Or even the funds to even make very many;

But when you hear the "resultant surround", 
Playing your favourite music in a way - you never thought "it could sound";
?
Then if you realise, what a profit could be had,
Manufacturing this in New Zealand, and selling units = WORLDWIDE;
:
You'll thank me for creating this showcase of knowledge here,
Instead of forgetting all about it, by letting my old profile ? HIDE.
 

Purchase Details: 

Many a prototype "has been built, tested or sold",
But production for lots of .. well that's currently: ON HOLD;
:
Until an investor, or 10, we can now find,
To "start manufacturing" (to stop all of you - going out of your mind).!
:
Because a small thought, that has slowly grown,
That's taken me from 1965 until 2015 (just) FIFTY YEARS,

Cannot be progressed at a faster rate, until "business minds alike",
GET THEMSELVES - INTO MY GEARS.!

However, in the meantime, a USA audio amplifier manufacturer,
Whom I did find, who intends to come back (to NZ) some day;
:
To assist "Waitaki Sound Technologies Limited New Zealand",
Become the vehicle for employing many, “on full pay”;
:
Which is why - we are currently progressing slowly along,
Tinkering with this, modifying that - and recreating a song.!

Utilising a URL-TLD "with our initials": www.WSTLNZ.com/xpa150a.htm ;
Until they come back, (I hope it's not long, but sadly also I think they won't return).

Check out my "attached picture", taken in 2014, at Roxburgh (NZ) 
A far few years ago, of the "2 people" (on the above ^ USA website);
!
Oh yes - it's starting to make sense .. of what I have written,
(over the back fence) as that's also "me there" in 2014 - on the RIGHT;
.
However - one also acknowledges, it's not possible to lift that same picture
(from their website), as it has been deliberately "copyright" hidden;
:
With a flip-over cover - of it's rear "heat-sink" side,
Thus MY PICTURE we took in my yard, it's genuine; IT IS A GIVEN
.

Thus yes - I know that you thought it was "maybe just a joke",
To hear all about analogue surround sound, by this “very old bloke”;
:
But it's what I haven't told you - which is more to the point,
As there's more (to this story) - than could be put into any weird joke;
:
As it's not just music, nor instruments we restructure & remake,
Or recycled products & wire clips, or even our fully patented “hinge for a gate”;
:
But all the other weird inventions & modified musical things,
Which others pass over, instead of re-using & recycling, the things I make:
!

With over 14 TLD specific URL's, and 20 WordPress blogs, (plus many twitters as well)
- it's easy to Find us as QUIX©™1999 via "WSTLNZ" (um) anywhere:

Just "FIND" us (when searching for) - any of our old websites out there
“QUIX - NZ / Hinge Services Central”, yes it's still there (somewhere);

Because a QUICK-FIX (QUIX) has never been easier,
Than putting it everywhere around the www (Weird Wonderful Web) 4U2C.
?
Creating "multiple blogsites" (on any of our TLD, top level URL's)
Simply by placing "our.name" or Initials (in search boxes) = just 4 "thee".!

As wow that's me (eh).!!!! As well as "those 2" - in the U-S (of A).
Oh & (plus the AMP too) http://www.quimperelectronic.com/xpa150a.htm


& Visual Pics (um OK): 
Try watching our (1965) TEN WAY, instant VU meter board via:

Yeah, nah not very good.
But what can one do, with just an old Nokia 6120 Classic phone
That just happened to have a MONO on-board (almost useless) Video Camera


FOR EVERYONE ELSE - who couldn't care less?
I think you are all K_RAY_Z (to not investigate old-school)
So here's an old song (Inter-mixed) Just 4U.!!!!
