    I'm bummed. I just broke my Leatherman. I'm glad it has that 25 year warranty.
    I am surprised at such a sudden deterioration in a woman whose only ailment was a lazy anus.

    I'm bummed because the bearing in the tuning shaft of my FM tuner has ceased to roll smoothly and now it's like trying to turn an old squeaky crank that hasn't turned since 1869. I'm also doubly bummed that the bolt holding the flywheel sheared off when I tried to remove it. I am also triply bummed as well since the bearings are solidly sealed and there wasn't anything I could do about it anyway short of replacing it and I don't have a donor.

    Oh, that sucks. I love Yamaha audio gear. Got me a CR-600 "Natural Sound" receiver in the living room.

    Not using the amp section, I run a little T-Class amp to the speakers.

    Know anybody in Phoenix? http://phoenix.craigslist.org/cph/ele/1616466018.html

    I sold an 811A amplifier that I accidently spilled bong water on the finals. It loaded into a cantenna, it worked fine. I warned the guy to get some sort of 'soft start'. He couldn't wait to play with his new toy. Guess what he did? I suppose inrush current is not on the new General class exam question pool. :homer:

    I was going to do that.
    I have to install a rectifier first. Not really a big deal but a surprise none the less.
