Just wanted to update that there is a screaming good deal on this monitor from Amazon right now @ $699.99 for prime members (link). If my order wasn't arriving tomorrow from Dell I'd definitely buy from amazon due to faster shipping and no-hassle returns.

This price isn't going to last so if anyone wants to join me in 34" curved goodness, now's the time.

EDIT: less than 10 minutes later, deal is dead

These Ray Ban's, never going to purchase sunglasses that aren't polarized. Difference is night is day.

Also: can someone teach me to hyperlink. I wanted to link these into the word Ray Ban's.

Think it's [ url="www.blah blah .com"] words [/url ] or something similar, sans spaces. Should have a button for it on your chat bar. Or quote someone who's done a link to see

Select the words you want to turn into a link, and hit the earth icon with a chain link in front of it, then paste in the link.

Ok, I thought it was something like that, but all the coding on the page was throwing me off and the preview didn't look like it was working. Thanks guys.

Re: What's the best thing you bought recently?

Couple of things I got at auction recently. On the left is the high value of the 1930's Graf Zepplin airmail set. It was issued during the depression when $2.60 was a lot of money, so not a lot of them were sold. Not really rare, but fairly expensive, especially in this nice a condition.

On the right a much rarer item - the stamp is worth about a penny or so, even though it was issued in the 1870's - but the KKK cancellation makes it a valuable item. At that time the KKK wasn't the completely racist outfit it became, more of a Rotary club/charity organization. The postmaster in a small town in Penn. made his own cancelling device as a sort of advertisement for his organization

Re: What's the best thing you bought recently?

First thing I could think of is this Gerber knife.

I don't think I could break it if I tried my hardest. I've actually used it to saw branches in half, used it on camping and rafting trips, it's just overall a beast. It's obviously better if you sharpen it on a whetstone, but it has a mini built in sharpener on the sheath for the smooth part of the blade that doesn't work that bad. Haven't had to use the butt of it to "egress from a helicopter" yet though. And the lashing holes to turn it into a spear are pretty LOL, because you're probably in Lord of the Flies if you're having to do that. If I don't lose it though, I don't think I'll need another camping knife.

Re: What's the best thing you bought recently?

Tumi crossbody bag that I bought at an outlet for $110. I use it for carrying headphones, phone charger, advil, lotion, snacks, money, etc. mostly when playing live poker.

number of pockets, durability, and trackability (you can register it at the Tumi website) were the sellers for me.


and I'm just gonna throw this in the thread even though it doesn't come out till next month because it's going to be good:

T-fal Electric Kettle

As something I use everyday I've gotten my money's worth and more. I love this thing. For only $28 it is definitely the most quality of life increase per dollar.

Re: What's the best thing you bought recently?

JL,

the ringer chainmail looks pretty great.


movieman,

i own two sleep masks. one that is similar to the one JL recommends, but worse i guess, so i may get that one. i also have the tempur sleep mask. this is a bit of a different style, it's much warmer and it sits on your eyes more. i prefer this style more but it wouldn't be suitable for a warm bedroom. anyway i've basically abandoned both as they always ended up off my head in the night unless i went super tight with the strap and hurt my ears.


nuggetz,

thx for the kenji reminder!

Clamcase for my iPad mini.

http://clamcase.com

Protects (have dropped it a couple of times, no damage) and turns it into a small laptop. Full keyboard, I'm rarely on my desktop anymore now, I do everything on my iPad with this thing attached. Literally use it every day and it's hands down the best peripheral I've ever purchased for an Apple product.

Damn, JL listing everything he ever bought, right down to some dried chickpeas!

Which is better, the ringer chainmail or the lodge scrapers? I'm cleaning cast iron.

Re: What's the best thing you bought recently?

i'd imagine the ringer is definitely better, though it's more expensive if that's an issue. those scrapers are back down to $5 now, i think they were $7 when i posted.
