Some people confuse it with an on-guitar whammy bar, a rod that you can use to loosen and tighten strings on a guitar to make the pitch fluctuate.

I got a new set of tires for my truck. Shortly after I got a black Wii. Next on the list is another 1 or 2 terabyte hard drive for 'backup' purposes.

Go with the 2tb. Price per gig is usually lower that way, and you'll be surprised how quickly a terabyte fills when doing 'backups'. Need pics or description for the tires and what truck you're mounting them on!

I have about 60 backups on the one TB drive downstairs and it's less than 30% full. Anyway the games run from 1 gig to 8 gigs and the usb software I use is limited to 500 games.

The tires went on a 1990 Ford Ranger. I don't remember what brand they were, Big O had a buy 2 get 2 deal. My old tires were falling apart and I figured that since these have a 3 year warranty they should last a little while.

oh no, I seem to have caused everyone to break out the rulers... My geek cock isn't as big as you guys (my laptop only has a 280 gig). I only have a single TB hard drive but it's connected to a device that is not supposed to be able to use a hard drive.

JW Blue is some pretty high dollar stuff for a blend.

I like the collection on the right side of the pic:
Puffs
Spool of thread
playing card
power strip
green and black usb thing
batteries from duracell and energizer
visa card
2 SD cards
more playing cards
Craftsman slotted screwdriver
point-and-shoot camera
perfume?
crayons
a white device with a clip?
white canister of some kind
a red plastic package... not sure what that is.
can tab
bag that says jungle


I bought more root beer and vanilla ice cream. It keeps me busy when I'm thirsty without getting me in trouble.

With the digital storage, it wouldn't be so bad, but HD video takes a lot of space.

btw, the mario shirt kicks ass

I've only ever had one mouse, a Microsoft Explorer, and it's 12 years old now, the paint job has worn through in places and the feet are down to the stumps, but it soldiers on without a bother on it. It just fits my hand so well, and I'm completely lost without 5 buttons.

I've tried a few other ones over the years, but never found anything that comes close.

In the end I decided to get another one the same, The original style had been withdrawn years ago and ended up buying an Explorer 3, It was crap, lightweight, too small, buttons were in awkward places and the plastic was cheap and looked brittle. Couldn't get on with it at all and gave it away at the end of a week.

Then, having a browse around ebay, I found a 'brand new' original - 99p

Arrived this morning

Top one.

ebay is the new jumble sale.

The thing was worth every penny during my recent car trip. It was very nice to be able to explore the area, knowing that I could get back to the hotel from wherever I happened to end up.

As for the sig, its really is amazing. From Wikipedia:

The theoretical capacity of a Boeing 747 filled with Blu-Ray discs is 595,520,000 Gigabits, resulting in a 37,034.826 Gb/s flight from New York to Los Angeles.

And they just used the cargo hold capacity for that estimate. Imagine if they filled the passenger area as well!

That's got to be left over from like the 80's or something, I remember talking to my brother about a pickup load of floppy disks replacing computer connectivity by phone.

Ping We didn't even know about ping yet. The truck would have been full of the entire contents of fidonet and usenet. With a 300 baud modem, the truck was probably quicker.

On an east to west data migration (and vice versa) we figured it would be cheaper and faster to use the pickup.

You could send an email in those days, but it might take 2 days to get there.

I don't think our thinking took us that far and the calculations were done after splitting a 6 pack, but I guess you'd have to consider such things.

Nobody has bought anything really cool since Atmo bought his blackstar on May 20th. I bought an ice cream from ice cream dude.

I've been thinking about building a new computer, but haven't.

I bought some old fashioned movie posters off ebay. They were some surprisingly nice giclee prints for $13 each. That's hardly worth mentioning. The vendor is artsnotdead. They aren't typical posters. Nice heavy papered giclee prints.

I got Gone with the Wind, Forbidden Planet, a couple Bond films, Psycho, Vertigo and some others.

Still that doesn't bring us in to the cool range for mention in this illustrious forum. Nor can I even think of anything I really want to buy that would fall into the cool range.

None of us bought anything cool in a month. Does this speak to the economy? Global warming? Al Gore groping his massage therapist? I'm not sure.

It is disconcerting though.

The first time I ever saw the quote about the tapes on the highway was in an old networking book.


The last thing I bought was new brake shoes and drums for the rear wheels. My mechanic said that the noises I was hearing was more than just the pads.

I've used this guy for years and trust that he wasn't selling me something I don't need.

Here are a couple examples. Creature from the Black Lagoon was cool too.

I thought the business was interesting too. I think these are probably public domain or at least cheaply licensed images. They sell axis and allies propaganda posters too.



Perfect for the bathroom

From the seller rating, it looks like this does well. Armed with a giclee printer, some public domain imagery and an ebay account, it looks like these guys found a way to print money. These would be very suitable to frame.

I didn't dig up a photo here, but the James Bond posters like "Dr. No" bear looking at because the art is so neat.

What made me look up some of this stuff was a Red Robin restaurant. I was having lunch with my brother and noticed I had seen a lot of the framed art as public domain images on the internet. How to decorate without spending any real money.

I really liked the Charlie Chaplin poster below too. Stagecoach with John Wayne was another keeper. It seems to me that you were involved in doing some print work for school. I was thinking that some of the aviation photos over at internet archive would make really neat posters. How can you beat a B-29 for visual interest?

One poster I had printed a while back was the 1933 New York skyline @ 40X30 inches. A public domain image I scanned from a library book. I'm not as happy with the printing quality, so I'm sort of in search of a better printer.

One thing I did was a picture of Daisy, which I had a poster printed for that would fit a large used frame I got from the thrift store. Looks like a million bucks, but wasn't $20. A can of 3M photo stickum stuff is your friend when trying to stick posters in frames. $16 bucks a can. Yikes! It's probably a lifetime supply. It's this spray stuff that doesn't penetrate anything, but just gives you a tacky adhesive to get the angle on the dangle right. Sticky enough to keep buckles and bubbles out. Not so sticky you can't reposition.

OK. I put together something pretty good. A new computer. I used a Phenom II 1055T X6 chip. This processor is nominally 2.8 Ghz, but I've overclocked at 3.8 Ghz with a moderate aftermarket fan.

Motherboard: Asus M4A78T-E
Graphics: 9800GT
System drive: Raid 0: 2X Toshiba 1TB drive.
Backup: 2 X 250GB SATA I Western Digital (parts box)
OS: Vista 32 (I had it)
RAM: DDR3 1333Mhz
Liteon BD drive.

http://www.amazon.com/Toolless-Atx-M...8184577&sr=8-2

This is the plain black case I stuck the whole mess in. BTW this is a killer case. I figured that the snap together design would rattle or something. Nope. Beauty! The chassis feet suck, but I usually end up putting better feet on machines I build anyway.

I think I could go to 4.2 Ghz, but I only have a 450 watt supply and 60C is hot enough. Surprisingly "Cool and Quiet" still works, so lightweight (anything but x264 encoding) applications hardly heat the machine at all. It runs virtualbox really well and an Ubuntu installation runs so nice (including 2 and 3D accelerated graphics) you'd never know you were running a virtual machine.

It's fa....ast.....

My DVR computer smoked it's power supply All fixed now $36 later

The small niggling annoyance is fans that don't spin.

I found out you can't overclock the Phenom to 3.8 Ghz in a 90 degree room. Had to back off to 3.4. At that rate, it's probably only 8X faster than the PVR box and 10X faster than my laptop.

I had this thing up to 4 Ghz, but it gets too hot in about 5 minutes, even in a 60 degree room.

I'd say this thread is proof that consumerism has tanked, but what the hell do I know.

Last thing I bought was because I had to, not because I wanted.

My Pioneer HDJ-1000's finally broke; this model has a history of breaking. So, I replaced them with Shure SRH750DJ cans. The Shure's are more comfortable than the HDJ's and the quality of Shure's drivers sound a little better. However, the true test will come tonight when they actually have to preform...
