    Got some cash and new small storage shed for the yard to get some junk out of the garage.

    By the time you buy the nomar stuff for the Harbor Freight rig it's not that much more and it's actually made in the good ole USA!!

    I'm getting tired of doing it on the floor with irons.

    i found the deal 3 weeks go that had the 6hr unit, with the wireless router, bundled with a flash drive that had CA virus suite, Open Windows (emulates all the MS Office software, exactly)..., and a bunch of other software preloaded...
    http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4338342&csid=_22

    sweet unit... no cd rom tho, and am having fits copying software.... the Stick works as a copy medium, but Garmin software ain't likin it at all... biotch garmen anyway...
    I think they sold those all out....bummer....I got one.
    I paid $400 earlier this year for a tower system with awesome M/B, and mega hd... XP, nothing else, and this has twice the storage as that one...
    and fits my tank bag... go figure.:eek1 :eek1

    If you are seriously having issues with your DSL please let me know via PM exactly what is happening. Is it ETIR (Every time it rains) or is it more often then that. How far are you from the central office? Are you serviced with buried service or by overhead lines? I will need your name and billing phone number and an alternate contact # IE cell.. Sorry I can only help if you are a VERIZON customer. PM I might be able to help you out:thumb

    MoB - The Pentax I got through Woot went to my daughter and hubby - at my wife's suggestion. Their Kodak digital (tried to warn them) died an early death, so they were without.

    Was a good deal all the way around and glad I had it on hand.

    I am always at a loss when I see those deals on how many to buy...
    you can buy up to 3 at a time , but you can't ever go back after you buy and get more... I was tempted to buy 3, and sell off the extras, they'd go in a second at that price for sure...
    When Dona saw it, and I was showing her the features, she got PISSED because it was soo sweet, and had so many features along with quality that the Fugi I bought her 4 years ago (for $500) didn't have... technology marches on.... hell, the mini-laptop she just got me blows away my new tower system (8 months old), AND my "portable work$tation Dell" from work... on storage, features and neat-ability.... just doesn't have a cd-rom to load programs... arggg.... been loading mem-stick and transferring stuff that way, but some software (garmin) simply refuses, and needs the cd drive... oh well
    Now trying to figger out this damn wireless router, and install it so I can network, and pull from the tower's cd unit to the mini.... freaking rocket science to understand... and I missed that day at the Vo-Ed school....:shog
