    Break it out, DJ, that thing is really easy to fly! But like mentioned, after a year of no use, the LiPo battery may be toast, and on that one, to replace it, you have to solder in a new one.

    But it would only cost a few bux to pick up a new one, if you have the soldering capability to solder it in.

    Does your iPad have a USB port? That's how you charge that thing, it comes with a USB charger cable. Probably bright yellow, like the 'coptor.

    Size 13, I had to upsize so I could run Dr Scholl's. You should see how big the slip-ons look in that size, that's the only reason why I'm not rockin the checkered ones.

    I never heard of Vans [shoes] until I read this thread. Are these part of the West Coast culture, or are they bike related?

    ^The high top ones were my jam when I discovered cool comin up. Also had a pair of the Rasta coloured low tops when I was, you know, doing my part for apartheid (No offense, I realise the irony). But you've inspired me Cornfield, gonna pick up a pair of the checkered slip ons. I've always dug those, definitely classic.

    ^^Sweet! I may have to at some point and be proud of my clown feet!

    DJ, any luck with the 'copter?

    Scored two digital cameras today at an estate sale for $5. They were marked at $14 each with half off today and I was gonna gamble 14 bucks that one had to work. I asked the lady at the checkout if they'd been tested, she didn't know and said I could have them both for $5, score! They seem to be in good working order, just need a cable for the Sony so I can transfer images to my PC. I am very excite! Gonna be posting lots more pics. Both are a third of the size of my old one I called "The Brick".

    Yep. It's all about the quality of the pixels, not so much the quantity of the pixels.

    High quantity is great, if the quality is there, too.

    Which tells me maybe I should break out my Sony DCS-S85 4.1 megapixel digital. I happened upon it recently after not using it for 10 years or so. I had assumed it wasn't as good of quality as my newer iPhone 6S which is a 12 megapixel camera, maybe not. I barely used it for a year so itís in like new condition. Itís kind of a pain to download because it uses a memory stick. Itís a point and shoot with a 3X zoom. Thereís no way of adapting a better zoom. It has a Carl Zeiss lense which is a very high quality lense though.

    my music score of the decade(arguably my life)...on indefinite loan to me!
    original 69 pro-reverb amp custom modded along with rare modded pedals by the late great cesar diaz. he is the man behind srv, richards' and clapton's special amps. he built this amp for my good friend who played out of austin in the srv era and has done recordings with double trouble. the amp's had stage time with greats like buddy miles. it is hallowed gear guarded 24/7 by a big german sheperd.

    When I think I may be done crashing it, I have a set of Carbon Fibre blades to try. I hear they sound even more like a real heli.

    The stock blades are plastic.

    this was not today, it was two weeks ago:

    the CEO of my company was going to have me E-cycle two perfectly good but well-used macbook airs.

    i suggested we keep one in my department so i don't have to run back and forth to a register (or use my phone keyboard) to contact vendors via email. no problem, he said.

    the other he let me take home, wipe clean and keep as mine. i quickly configured it to run my itunes via a 2TB external and installed virtual DJ pro version 8 on it in case i ever want to DJ at bars again. having a laptop might also end up being handy on longer trips with the camera--one can slip an SD card into the macbook's slot and there we are.

    the batteries both have plenty of life.

    happy birthday to me!

    I bought this turntable as a basket case for £50. Arm was ripped off and was in two pieces, a foot was missing, it was a real mess.

    Spend £55 on parts, repaired it and sold it for £220.

    Yes, I believe they were too. I sported the high tops back then, with the laces wrapped around the upper part. Not sure if that was just a regional thing or what.

    Speaking of Vans, I found these Old Skool Pros at ROSS for $25, still not sure about the color, tho.

    And this thing today for $2. I'm a sucker for this kind of stuff.

    lol!

    Damn, I've got a tobacco sunburst Les Paul sitting right next to me and a tweed fender amp inches from my foot (it's a reissue from around 1996, transistor with an 8" speaker but I've got a Carvin tube amp in the basement). I really need to play.

    Is Susie back riding?

    Rock on, Mr. Net Wurker, rock on. And happy birthday.

    It's not a very desirable year, looking at the serial number, the third and fourth numbers are 78, which sounds about right. I'm not sure that's how the serial numbers work but that sounds like the right year. The middle piece of maple has some bird's eye figure in it.

    My mother in law's husband ( her 4th ) died last week....he was a terrible person. While we stopped short of throwing confetti and popping champagne, no one here is upset by his passing. His nephew went through his things and took whatever might have been worth anything, which wasn't much, and left the rest of the junk for us to clear out.


    In the mix was this WWII brass field compass ( I think by Wittnauer). Nothing of any real value, but a supremely cool item none the less.

    And MoJo donít jump the shark and write it off so soon on its worth. Have it checked out by at least two reputable war / antique memorabilia firms. You never know, that piece may just be your next down payment on a home.

    Neat little piece there Mojo!

    @net: Sounding better and better, stick with it!


    Well, I'm finally starting to put stuff down on paper again, and I'll need to stick with it if I want anything good to come out of these hands, lol! This is my first sketch in a long time, and Net has suggested I work on some stuff since I'm stuck at home. I figured I'd try out one of the Rapidographs I scored a wile back. I was doing ok then started loosing my patience, made a real mess of the E, lol!

    It's not a serif, don't know what it's called yet. Serifs are at the ends of a stroke (line), not sticking out of the middle.

    You're stuck at home?

    Good job with the Rapidograph, Corn. If it had been me, there would be a big ink blotch toward the end where the pen puked ink all over the place. Probably followed by a lot of wrinkling of paper. And maybe some stabbing.

    Ouch. I got a big chigger bite on one cheek, I'll have to be sure not to scratch it too much.

    Hope it gets better quick (yours, mine's not so bad).

    Iím covered in mosquito bites and have been since mid May. Thereís a bite on my face right below my ear that wouldn't stop bleeding for 3 days. Today itís finally on the mend. But my legs and arms are covered from mowing the lawn two days ago. And yesterday morning I arrived at work at 5:30 am. I noticed a Horsefly flying around my work zone. I didnít have time or the skill to hunt him down and splat him. So Iím going about my work and that sucker bit me right on my lower back 5 minutes into my shift. He split and I didnít see him the rest of the day. So now Iím full of red mosquito bump bites and a large red welt from the Horsefly. Iím one of those people that the mosquitoes and any other biting bug are attracted to. I donít get it, I can attend a BBQ with brothers and sisters and come out of it the next day covered in bites. Yet all 4 of of my siblings with the same blood running through them donít get bothered at all. Iíve tried every repellant out there and they still get me.

    Oops, wrong thread. Back to your best scores.

    One way to read this is that you confused your nuts for a bug bite.

    One nut or two? If the bug got two, heís a skilled bug. Maybe worth catching for any bug competitions.

    Btw, when I said "cheek", I wasn't talking about on my face. Mosquitos will bite me but I have very little reaction to them now-a-days. Horseflys are some mean mothers, haven't had to deal with one of those in years.

    LOL

    And I as well havenít dealt with Horseflies in years. I donít know where this one came from. When I was a kid in upstate N.Y. we used to go camping in the Adirondacks. Swimming in the lakes up there was a painful experience. The Horseflies up there are as big as a half a dollar. Theyíd get you on land but once you entered the water to go swimming for some reason you were even more of a prime target. Weíd scream at each other when we spotted one was buzzing around another. Diving under water gave you a brief moment of relief but it was inevitable theyíd get ya. They donít land sit then bite. They land and bite immediately. Thereís no swatting them off to avoid a bite just waving your arms around in hopes they donít land on you. The welts are painful and huge as you know.

    these little northern california deerflies are pesky little critters, too. their bites leave marks that last for more than a week.

    Pretty sure a male bug has two nuts, just like we do; no skill required. But I'm not going to catch one and spread it's legs to check.

    My wife scored this lil pee shooter at a crafts show after I got a promotion at work. (The promotion requires more HR oriented tasks.). ďWhen someone comes in and really makes you mad, shoot em with this.Ē

    Awesome rubber band gun that holds three bands which I can fire away at people as they scurry out the door. SCORE!

    I think my wife thinks I have a temper...
