    Soldering Irons.

    Yep, soldering irons RULE !

    Soldering irons allow you to do freaky hardware mods that make people look at you funny.

    Of course, the MacGurus RULE becausee they allow people with soldering irons to post thier wierd wacky hardware mods so more people can look at them strange.

    Sounds to me like we might have another fan of Peart, Lifeson and Lee (among others)...am I right Brane?

    Some of you may have already heard me crusade for these machines, but I would put Power Mac 6100s in the category of Things That Do Not Suck. God only knows how many of those machines are holding up an Atlasian amount of responsibility in the form of FTP servers, mail servers, LAN routers, auxiliary work machines, etc etc. I've got two of them.

    Excellent - RUSH - the quintessential Canadian band...Neil, Alex, and Geddy...;=)

    Being a new owner of a used one, I might add - Volvo wagons...they might look like bricks on wheels (http://www.brickboard.com) but this 850 GLT hauls some serious butt on the highway, even when loaded down...

    Yes anarch you would be correct, but I'm actually a bigger fan of Frank Marino & Pat Travers. Must be something about the Great White North, aye Chris?

    Actually Volvo was one of the first auto manufactures to have the balls to put 6 digits(plus tenths) on their odometers. I think that says something.
