  1. I can't  believe it's been so long.

  2. What is the current market price for a gently used Case Pro 100 with .40 dies?
  3. Ignorant PC Person Here, How do I tell if it is Firewire 800 or 400? I distracted the wife momentarily and got to her baby. Upder Applications/Utilities/System Profiler/Hardware/Firewire (whew!) I found this information? Looks to me like Firewire 800 (highlighted), but what do I know? I know 800 is backwards compatible, but if she can handle 800, that's the way I want to go. FireWire Bus: Maximum Speed: Up to 800 Mb/sec OEM SATA Device 00: Manufacturer: OWC Model: 0x0 GUID: 0x30E007E01D011C Maximum Speed: Up to 400 Mb/sec Connection Speed: Up to 400 Mb/sec Sub-units: OEM SATA Device 00 Unit: Unit Software Version: 0x10483 Unit Spec ID: 0x609E Firmware Revision: 0x110 Product Revision Level: Sub-units: OEM SATA Device 00 SBP-LUN: Capacity: 232.89 GB Removable Media: Yes BSD Name: disk2 Mac OS 9 Drivers: Yes Partition Map Type: APM (Apple Partition Map) S.M.A.R.T. status: Not Supported Volumes: BACKUP #2: Capacity: 232.76 GB Available: 71.34 GB Writable: Yes File System: Journaled HFS+ BSD Name: disk2s10 Mount Point: /Volumes/BACKUP #2 Unknown Device: Manufacturer: Unknown Model: Unknown Maximum Speed: Up to 400 Mb/sec Connection Speed: Unknown
  4. My wife is the Mac user in our household. She wants an external hard drive. I know nothing about Mac hard drives. She works on a G5 which is a few years old. I think that she can connect USB 2.0 or firewire. Where should I look? What do I need to know? What questions am I not asking?? I'm lost here....
  5. So, I've got a high schoold reunion coming up (don't ask how many years). In high school I was the annual/newspaper photographer. I have around 7000, 35 mm B&W negatives that I would like to scan. The purpose being to sell copies of the pictures on a web site before & after the reunion (Huzzah Capitalism!). I've got the web stuff covered, but I need an idea of a scanner that can do a really good job with a fairly high, in my estimation, throughput -- I've got until October to do this. I will want to scan at a relatively high resolution so that people can make decent prints from the scans. Any hardware suggestions that will not totally destroy my savings? Drum scanners are out, I think as too expensive. So I'm thinking a flat bed.
  6. Now, if they made that in King Size......I might need one.
  7. Somewhat related: I hate it that after 25 years I involuntarily cringe every time a car pulls up on a perpendicular street to my right when I'm going down the road. Total, involuntary response left over from a bad accident many moons ago. Intellectually, I'm over it, but down deep I fear I will never recover.
  8. And those trees in the window. I bet they aren't real either.
  9. A 1952 Willys Aero 4 door sedan. Built like a tank. Stylish as a potatoe.
  10. I've still got several full sleeves left from the last primer shortage. As soon as they become abundant again, I'm buying more.
  11. I'm a'having Spam for dinner.

    They are vampires sucking out blood.
  13. My mother-in-law is a disposophobe (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compulsive_hoarding). It became abundantly clear when we found about 700 plastic Redi-whip containers in one of her storage sheds. When asked she said that she might need one some day.....Her house is not totally crammed full, but you better be careful opening a closet door....
