    Wow, I'm REALLY late to the party on this one... I've been way too busy lately to even think about using a computer.

    Thanks for the gifts Tass! The spork will come in handy when I get back into backpacking, and I'm wanting to try some Lego Jell-O shots. Lamb, I hear, is a fantastic book, and you have expedited my reading of it :)
    JZL says thanks for this.

    So apparently Amazon spends any gift credit you ahve on every purchase you make until it's gone. SO I spent my SS gift on renting John Dies at the End, buying the book (AGAIN thanks ex-gf for stealing my copy), and the rest went towards a bluray player for my parents.

    I was really wanting to save it and use it for some upcoming movies, but oh well. I appreciate it again, Kain. How's the box coming along?

    Ah... that's too bad about spending it at once, but well, you got some neat stuff.

    The box is awesome. I tried to assemble it. to see how it was done, but still no soldering tool, so I can't activate it.

    I got my SS the second part of his gift, I just have to remove it from a room that is full of lead based paint. Please wash before use (I'm not joking about the lead paint).

    Hahaha! I'm so nervous excited. ;) I'll be safe, and I promise not to sue when the testicular anthrax kicks in.

    You really made my Christmas with that adapter, man. I've been using it pretty regularly to retrofit my old lenses to the digital with fantastic results. <3

    Awesome SMERSH I've got the same one, and plan on using it for the same thing. I'm working on getting a kegerator built right now, but once its done I'll start my homebrew adventure.

    Yeah the last boil over two different electric burners causing my stovetop to bend was uh... Less than ideal.

    Also, I need to figure out a "fell off a truck" deal for a kegerator. Bottling is going to get old quick.

    That's the problem I'm having with getting my kegerator built. My grandparents had an old fridge that would have been perfect but they changed their minds and decided they wanted to keep it, so now I'm stuck surfing craigslist for a decent deal.

    I'm really close to just saying screw it, and buying a true tdd-3 or the beverage aire dd50.

    Those old fridges are getting harder and harder to find. What with the financial incentives and the power company buy-backs that are happening.
