It's easy to read, except for being in the wrong order. Clairol for the disguise, the gun for the hit. Here's the fixed post.

386,000€ worth



Dunno when this was taken but the front lawn is covered with nice lush grass now and there are small hedges along the chain-link fence.

Lam wouldn't accept the garage but I doubt that it'll see anything with a bigger engine than a lawnmower.

Still not sure when the moving-in date is.

Yep, for Gigabit Ethernet. I ran ~250 feet of outdoor CAT6 in the backyard.

Oh I also purchased a MobileMe renewal a few days ago for A$120.

Which is now free.

And Apple won't give me a refund until sometime "in the (US?) Fall".

I would appreciate that- Thanks. I'm especially interested how much more it can hold- ie power adapter, headphones, wallet, etc.

Today I got a bunch of Blu-ray discs because Blockbuster Canada is liquidating its stores at 50% off.
I also ordered a S.M.S.L SA-S3 stereo amplifier. This is about as bare bones as consumer amplifiers get:





It's for the basement TV to use with my laptop and the wall speakers.
If I like the amp, I may get one for the iMac with a pair of bookshelf speakers or something.

Where did you pick that amp up? I am looking for exactly that same thing.

eBay. Look for "Class-T" or "Tripath" amp, or search for one of the following chips:

TA2024: 2 x 15 Watts (4 Ohms), 2 x 10 Watts (8 Ohms)
TA2020: 2 x 20 Watts (4 Ohms), 2 x 12 Watts (8 Ohms)
TA2021: 2 x 25 Watts (4 Ohms), 2 x 14 Watts (8 Ohms) (or else maybe the same specs as TA2020 depending on what you read)

There are also other ones like TA2022 and TK2050 which are much higher powered... and much more expensive.

Some online audio shops also have them, esp. under the "Topping" or "S.M.S.L" brands. It's a lot cheaper on eBay, and I ordered the S.M.S.L SA-S3 (TA2021) from some random Chinese eBayer, but places like this have them:

Tripath T-Amp 2021 Topping
Topping Tripath T Amp 20 2020 Chip Class T

Note that most of the eBay listing don't include the power adapter (12V 5A), which adds about $10-20 to the price.

Perhaps you keep fuel in the longer chamber and the flame is enhanced by the reflector at the end.

I got the bag yesterday and really like it. It's very small and wasn't designed to carry much more than an iPad and then anything less than an inch thick.


You can see that there only around an inch between the iPad compartment and the front of the bag. There are small compartments for phones and pens.



The 11" MacBook Air is too long for the case. It will close but it wasn't made for it.

Dude, you should have bought a women's handbag instead. They can fit whole warehouses full of crap into those things.
