  1. My general attitude them is in regards to the Mac computers themselves. Overpriced and a nightmare in a windows domain and server environment.
  2. I had a Razr, that was a great phone. I beat the snot out of it and it just kept working.
  3. I despise Apple but until they stop making the iPhone I'll probably be slinging that around. It's reliable, relatively safe, has VPN right off the bat and works great with network diagnostic tools/VNC/VMware/RDP/etc. Company provides my phone so I don't really think about how overpriced they may be. There are perks to some of the other makers but I just need the phone to run flawlessly and perform the above applications with no hiccups. As far as the phablets, I just can't do them. Too large to fit comfortably in my pockets with a protective case, and I'm not wearing a clip on my belt. I look at them as mainly purse phones, they're so large that I think it looks a little ridiculous when these tiny women slap them up to their ear. This is all my opinion, if you like other makers or a phablet it doesn't make a difference to me. Use what works for you.
  4. Pelham Blue SG with small pick guard, ebony board, Lyre vibrola, Classic 57s and no robot tuners. If they came out with a P90 version in Invernesse Green as well I'd end up with two SGs this year. I'll probably just have to go to a luthier and have them built since Gibson doesn't give 2 shits about what their customers want. We'll just get more "tasteful burst" LPs and "relic'd" guitars.
  5. That sounded fantastic, very tempting. I'm seeing them in the mid $400 range, not a terrible price.
  6. It's been a while since I've seen it, but wasn't the park ran off of a Unix system?
  7. One that shouldn't be adjusting a truss rod in the first place.
  8. ^ Did you expect anything different? Courtney has been making a living off his corpse for how many years now?
  9. Excellent, I'm really looking forward to getting one of them. I've been good, working a lot and bought a house so I have very little time to play or relax. Plus the girlfriend is pushing for a ring... You know how that is.
  10. Let me know when you have some of those Rangemasters finished, Dub. I'd like to pair it up with the AC30.
  11. My 2 cents: go try out as many as you can and pick the one that you find is the easiest to use vs. features, apps and price that appeal to you. I'm far from being a programmer, but as an IT guy who takes care of a small/medium business chain and all the evils that entails I love both the Microsoft Surface and Apple iPad. I get to set up and play with all the toys before they make their way to the users in the company, and for what I do either one works extremely well. iPads work great for working on VMs, servers, and dialing into the VPN on the road to work on issues within the company. 4G capabilities make it even easier for working from the road, as hot spotting off my phone can be difficult with the amount of calls I get per day knocking me off. The Surface on the other hand is superb for those used to Microsoft PCs, and you can treat it exactly as such. On any given day I'm happy with either. I will say that even though I get to use expensive things at work, for personal use I get as much performance as possible for as little money I can spend. If you can find something with good specs for 1/3 to 1/4 the price of the top of the line equipment you will end up better off IMO, as you can upgrade 3-4 times for the same cost and will end up with something that performs exponentially better by the time you get to your 3rd or 4th replacement.
  12. Wait, you're on ILF too? I messaged Dub there a couple months back but I never got a response. He's a good guy hope he comes back around soon.
  13. I'd take one if I could justify dropping coin like that.
  14. Yep! All 5 wires that run through conduit in the hinge to the license plate lights had broken from use/old age and were causing a short. Some cramped quarters soldering in there, but it went perfectly.
  15. I just spent a couple hours out in the sun splicing and soldering wires in the trunk of my old Mercedes... wasn't exactly the fun kind of DIY..
  16. I don't have any photos but a lot of family members were musicians. Mom played violin, my grandfather (her father) played drums, violin and accordian in local bands. Never got to meet him as he died of a heart attack when my mother was twelve. My great uncle Archie is one hell of an accordian player. On my father's side my grandfather played piano, organ, and harmonica, my uncle is an outstanding bass player, and my cousin is a superb piano player. He played for GW Bush at the white house, he's now a lawyer at a firm in Paris and plays quite regularly there.
  17. MKII Tonebender I'm currently working on, have to drill out the enclosure a bit to fit the pots then I'll be ready to wire it up and give it a go.
  18. That looks sick man. You're making me want to try my hand at it, I'd probably butcher the damn thing.
  19. That's already pretty sick looking, coming together quickly!
  20. That's a pretty bit of Lumber there, Searcy. It'll look great With that grain showing through.
