    Question about Stevie Ray Vaughan Box Set

    I believe that's the backside/tremolo of his infamously worn-out Fender Stratocaster: From Wiki: For bonus SRV points, check out these great vids: YouTube - Dick Dale & Stevie Ray Vaughan - Pipeline (hq audio) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSjRg...eature=related

    Fiber Optic Home Installation for TV and NET. What to expect?

    Good Thread.. for those of us with "older" homes not having Cat5 run to each room, is running Cat5 to each TV included in the "free installation" ? CRyan - what speed is your switch ? I wouldn't think it's a problem as long as adequate bandwidth is provided. Also ask the installer what the...

    Microwaving Water Dangerous!

    Interesting stuff... I had heard of superheating, but thought it was extremely rare (also thought Alton was merely impressing everyone with his knowledge of arcane cooking theory). Didn't know it was so common an occurrence and can be readily reproduced....

    Idea's for a caribbean vacation

    This may be overblown and certainly not limited to the Caribbean, but research hotspots near your destinations: One example: BASSE-TERRE, Guadeloupe — Tourists stuck at hotels as violent protests swept this Caribbean island began flying out on Thursday after police pulled down barricades on...

    My wife had lasik a few years back. Very quick procedure with no issues (and she is a wimp). Still wears glasses for driving at night because something about the light refractions affect her, but that's it. Prior to the surgery she got seasick constantly, now she handles the boat without...

    What's Your Favorite Live Album and Why?

    These albums frequently get into my rotation: 1) Deep Purple: Made in Japan - All members of the band in their prime and smoking ! Probably over-dubbed, but Ritchie Blackmore's Highway Star solo still sends shivers down my spine.... 2) Lynyrd Skynyrd: One more from the Road - Stevie Gaines...

    *** Official I AM LEGEND Discussion Thread

    Bumping this as it came in my Netflix queue and enjoyed reading the discussion. Totally agree with the CGI comments, plus I haven't seen an ending this bad since the original Blade Runner.... Some of the "alternate ending" links are broken, but this one still works: Must Watch: I Am...

    NFL 2008 Regular Season Discussion Thread

    Great statement.... sad reflection that Pacman, Plexico, etc (ad nauseum) get daily press for their off-field antics, yet the great work of the likes of Dungy get relegated to a few "special interest" segments spattered throughout the year. Just scored tix to the AFC game through a bus tour...

    NFL 2008 Regular Season Discussion Thread

    I also heard Brady's rehab reacted positively to the antibiotics, so if any news to the contrary comes out, please post a link. Achieving an 11-5 record with a backup QB and 14 players on injured reserve is an accomplishment for any team.... but still hurts to miss the Playoffs. Another...

    Land Seizures and Compensation

    I believe the increased tax revenues flowing into the "public" coffers is the rationale.... twisted, but government is hardly logical (or fair).

    NFL 2008 Regular Season Discussion Thread

    What is everyone's feedback on the international games ? (i.e. - the Pats/Bucs game scheduled to be played in UK next year). The glowing comments I have read are from the owners. If I was a Bucs season tix owner, I'd be a bit peeved to lose a home stand. Wonder how the players feel about it...

    150hp outboard motor purchase help?

    Congrats - boating season is almost underway ! What kind of boat ? Don't fret too much about the 11k... at least you're getting an extra 5 knots. A buddy upgraded his Albin 28 from gas to diesel. 40k later he gained about 4 knots.

    150hp outboard motor purchase help?

    Can't offer much of a valid opinion, but my gut says Yamaha. Got a bud with an older Evinrude which runs like a top (I believe a 150), but there is a reason Grady-White designs it's boats for Yamaha. The endurance and sound would overcome the weight and performance factors, imho. What kind of...
