    what to replace CD changer with?

    I have an older Pioneer 100 disc changer, but its starting to wear out. Rather than just replace it I was wondering about storing my music electronically and having it sent to the amp.

    looking for a nice writing pen

    I just got back from Japan where I bought enough letter writing sets to last until HD DVD becomes obsolete and now I would like a nice pen to write with. Nothing as fancy as a Mont Blanc (are they really worth the money), just a good pen to write with. What are the big names in pens?

    I'm suddenly in the market for new table saw, hopefully soon. Can anyone recommend one or point me to a table saw review online? I've seen table saw shootouts in magazines, but never bought them because I didn't need a saw then, but I do now. jeremy

    anybody else get Mario Kart?

    Its not a huge leap up from 64, but a good game still. I've only played the single player mode so far. The character switching does add to the game, mostly because the characters are no longer tied to their specific cart. The tracks are fun and more three dimensional than ever before. I just...
