    drunk co-worker

    I have a little work related issue that lately has been really bothering me. My managing partner keeps on calling me at home when he is totally drunk and gets all philosophical on me. He also criticizes my work. He even criticizes me personally for decisions that were made above my head...

    issues with work

    Lately some things at work have been really bothering me. I am not sure if its just me or if it really is an issue. I am currently the highest paid person. I do most of the work and initiate the ideas. I am pretty much the brains of the operation. Problem is some of the ideas I have...

    Cancelling extended car warrantee?

    Last week I traded in my 02 Mustang LX for a 2004 Hyundai Sonata. I don't regret it one little bit. The Sonata is more comfortable and is faster and might just even handle better then my Mustang. It is also the first car I have ever owned that has zero defects out of the factory. I usually...

    Hyundai Sonata

    I have been passively looking for a new car over the last month. My 2002 Ford Mustang has had a lot of issues and the dealers have not been real good about fixing it. The latest problem is the engine is pinging badly. No matter what octane I use. After visiting several dealers and having the...

    Sherwood RD-7108 died

    Today I started watching Die Another Day on my secondary system that uses a Sherwood RD-7108 receiver. I have always liked this receiver because I thought it sounded pretty good and was a great bang for the buck. Only paid $129 for it almost 2 years ago. Unfortunately it went out with a bang...

    A few weeks ago I ordered a complete Wharfedale set. Everything I ordered was on backorder. Almost everything is in and the DFS surround speakers should be in Tuesday. I did receive an e-mail saying the Powercube 12 has been recalled. Apparently they have a really high defect rate and...

    order online and then....nothing

    I ordered some new speakers last Friday early in the morning. Within minutes of placing the order I got a confirmation e-mail about placing the order. They informed me in the e-mail that they will send another e-mail with the tracking information. I am usually a little bit cautious so I...

    Good Guys and Klipsch Synergy series?

    I have noticed that every Synergy Series speaker model being sold at goodguys.com is now out of stock. I know they will no longer be selling them but I did not realize it would be this soon. Best Buy will not start selling them until Memorial Day. Will the Good Guys get more in or is this it?

    Thinking of Wharfedale

    I was thinking about ordering the Wharfedale Zaldek speaker line that Best Buy is currently selling. Problem is the way these speakers are marketed and very little information on them I just can't justify it at this time. They are being marketed as a loud rock and roll PA style speaker. The...

    At Best buy the have 2 DVD's for $20 special. From the add I thought all $14.99 titles were part of this special. But according to the fine print only the titles shown are part of this offer.

    New Panasonic Player at Costco

    Tonight at Costco I noticed some Panasonic players sitting on a pallet. It was up high on shelf but I thought the boxes said DVD-S35S. On the floor they still had some RP32's. I thought I heard someplace that the new models will be coming out in February and March. Perhaps Panasonic has...

    street date for new Panasonic players?

    I already have an RP82 and an RP62. I am very curious on how the 2003 models will perform. I am sure others are as well. Depending on my needs I might be one of the first to buy one. But only if one of my DVD players stops working altogether.

    My local Best Buy is out of RP62's

    At a price of $129 they were all sold out at my Local Best Buy. I asked one of the salesman if they plan to get any more and they said the next batch will be the new model. Of coarse he could not say exactly when. I wonder if Panasonic is going to release the 2003 models here very soon...

    This is the second order in 2 weeks that was late from DVDEmpire. First it was xXx and now Signs. xXx was 3 days late. I am thinking about canceling all future orders and just go to Best Buy. One of the only advantages to ordering online was getting them a day early or street date. This...
