  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. hello, Fellow Babies,

    I've been dealing with Windows OS for years. The only thing I can say --

    I loved the movie Jurassic Park, and I/m so glad they didn't screw it up by trying to add a 3-D effects. That is so cheesy! But of all the CGI and special effects, I found the hardest to swallow was that, in the story line, Lex Murphy ( Ariana Richards) could bring the park under control and save the day with a Windows NT3.X.

    It's been a while since I've seen it, but wasn't the park ran off of a Unix system?

  4. Jeff! I've been thinking about you. How are you?!


    Sure thing I'll let you know when I have some built. Currently working out the powdercoating details with my buddy. After that is worked out it should move pretty fast

    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.

  5. 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.

  6. Yeah, he's MIA at I Love Fuzz as well. He has a couple of pedals listed still on Reverb, but they've been there awhile. I sent him a message on there just now.

    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.

  7. The extra grand must be be because they include the HS case now...


    I hope they come back down to earth in 2016. I was really hoping for a pelham sg with lyre this year (I'm sure many, many others would like to see them hit the market) and I've been looking at semi-hollows but I'll either go used or look to a different maker.

  8. If they're the stock tubes it's a good idea to replace them anyways, the stock ruby's are garbage. I really like the tung sol reissue 12AX7's and the JJ el84's are decent but I want to try something different in the power section of my HWAC30.
