The leather looks like great quality, and I can't wait to break them out. The gold eyelets and lace tips are a very nice touch, as is the pebble grain. Oh, what a fun thread to have stumbled upon, and congrats on your new boots, ArliHawk. I fondly remember DMs, which were popular not...
Firstly, congratulations on your Pentax and welcome to the wonderful world of DSLR photography. I trust that you're enjoying it!! If it's high quality you want, see: Adorama http://www.adorama.com/ It's where the pros and serious amateurs go, and have for years (depending on what you want to spend of course). If you're like most starting out, you're likely capturing a ton of images, which adds up in printing costs (I hear you). If so and don't want to spend a lot of...

It's great seeing people applying modern logic to traditions that in some cases are hundreds of years old. Agreed.

Sonick, with all due respect, your question is a thorny one; crossing jurisdictional boundaries by taking music online subjects you to a multitude of laws on the matter. Honestly, seek out legal advice. For general informational purposes only (and in no way rendering legal or any advice), many online are operating under the mistaken belief that there is a non-commercial use exception which allows them to upload/download works, but which belief is untrue: basically,...

Also, see the bolded. What do those even mean without their counterpoints ( ')'). That matter doesn't concern yourself, it having seemingly been resolved, but I thank you for your concern. As to what you are referencing, your prior comment was in...

So many beautiful time pieces here, just brings tears to my eyes! Hmmm, been collecting for some time now also, but my favorite pieces these days seem to be my Rolex Oyster Royalite, c. 1940s (my IWC Portofino is my daily wearer currently). On weekends, I enjoy my vintage WWII Rolex Skyrocket (shockproof, military dial) which I inherited from my father (along with his gold Air King). Otherwise, I’ll put on my vintage Tudor Oyster Air Lion (by Rolex), c. 1950 (jet-black...

That was my whole point, JT (and I am exceptionally well brushed up on the law of cyberspace, having said what was needed, thus avoiding any such chop fest, both here and for all time, which I for one do not engage in, nor do I find amusing. Trust that will be the end of it, but feel free...
