I'm not a huge fan of them, but for what they do, they do pretty well. I'm still debating if I really want that Orange Tiny Terror or not for Christmas... $500-600 is quite a bit of my Christmas money...

Great sound for an inexpensive solid-state amp--but to each his own, of course... I do hear a lot of players who also own tube amps say: "I just play the Line 6 now."

Of course each person has to play what they like instead of listening to others. That being said though, its definitely good considering how much you pay for it.

I've been eyeballing the Canon digital rebel- they're down to ~$450 these days, which would leave more cash to use on other things.

Well, I managed to break my Konica/Minolta A2 over the holidays (westfw's law: don't buy a camera that so expensive that you're afraid to use it), so that provided the excuse to buy the canon DSLR I've been thinking about. Got a Rebel XTi with default lens from amazon; I'm thinking that self-cleaning sensor might be important. In theory i can put my old olympus OM/1 lenses on this (in full manual mode, of course.) I'll let y'all know how that works out. The camera arrived today. I can tell I'm going to miss some of the A2 features. But now at least I can try to fix the A2 without being camera-less... (The XTi also uses the same batteries as my canon video camera. A nice coincidence!)

Bhphotovideo.com and Cameta.com are both highly reputable, well priced stores. I've also heard good things about beach camera. I bought my D50 from Cameta.

My wife's sister, my sister-in-law, is a bit of a strange bird. I never know exactly what kind of "reception" I will get from her. She is my wife's younger sister, and the "baby" of the family, in more ways then one, despite having raised 3 children...*rambling fades into the distance* LOL

Buck got a rubber chicken for hanukkah, and stole a bunch of wrapping paper this morning.

Our Maltese was going crazy tearing up wrapping paper this morning. Our other dog got a bone and he was content for a while just eating it.

It was so funny, I had some paper at my feet, he walked up real slowly...sniffed it, snatched it, and ran! Then when my brother threw a balled up piece of paper, he left his little pile, ran to get it, and came back to start tearing up his new supply.

But what if we replaced your house with a series of tubes? We could have a bowl in one corner of food, and a bottle sticking in with water. Then, there could be a wheel for you to exercise on, and a tower for you to sleep in. Maybe we'll insulate it with some nice shredded newspaper, or maybe some wood chips?

Something like this:

Hey, as long as I have my tools, a source for parts, and some electricity (oh and my books !), I would be happy :-) Just don't expect me to move my nest every few days by stuffing it in my mouth cheeks LOL

That could be arranged, I'll just have to grab an extra main piece while I'm at the pet store, an extension cord, too.

Ooo good, let's see, it must power a cirucular saw, a hand-drill, my work bench with the soldering irons on them, oh I can't forget my 60 A electric welder :-) I have enough books to start a small, science and philosophy library too so the library will have to be rather substantial.

Ok, so i'll get a power strip, and three main units.

Could you get a UPS for the computer too ? The power strip, if well grounded should be ok, for everything else though (and if you could wire the computer system on a separate ground, that would be super) LOL
