At the time, I thought the betamax was better, but I was young, so I can't be sure now. I wanted the betamax because I heard you could record copy after copy of a tape, and the quality wouldn't degrade over generations. I never did really copy anything, though!

actually, the beta format IS better than the vhs format according to some people in the broadcast industry i knew before. vhs just got the upper hand in the united states and japan that's why beta didn't fly off. kinda like sony's minidisc in the 90s...

The videodisc player came in the mail today. I hooked it up and it rules!

I bought a sterling card case at Tiffany & Co. in NYC right after meeting Vaclav.

I was plagued by the unprofessional habit of forgetting my business cards when attending meetings, and this was the only cure. I got one in a pattern that matches my money clip. It is currently being engraved at Tiffany in Ginza.

ummm... I had sorted the disks alphabetically, and the one on top was Airplane. So that went in first. Then The Karate Kid, Then Logans Run, now The Beastmaster.

damn damn damn!!!!!!!

I had an opportunity to buy a Jaquet Droz Tonneau GMT... one of the most gorgeous watches for (well) under 10k I've ever seen. I am soooooooooooooo pissed someone else snatched it before I could buy... the buyer left his number on the forum but it was Sunday and I felt bad calling him, so I waited and heard the tragic news... I'll never see one of these watches again probably...

On TImezone? Nice looking watch. Better luck next time. Can't you put up a WTB post? Maybe you'll be lucky.

Was it some sort of one-off or just a rare edition? I don't really know (my taste in watches is more little plebeian and dare I say it practical - and I don't have the money for that stuff )

I hope it wasn't a one off... although JD does make one offs.
