    well I did it...

    I am now a proud owner of a shiny basically-new parallel-imported in some American Vietnamese dude's backpack one o'these.

    You're one of thousands of Vietnamese iPhone owners
    fixed.

    Back in Christmas, it seems like every of my friends (admittedly a trendier-than-average crowd) and their mothers had or were about to buy one. Costs aren't much, if any higher than US retail price either.

    In a country of over 80 million people, he's in the very trendiest of the population, by definition.

    After resisting wearing a watch for so long, I succumbed. This is my new toy, a Seiko SCVS003:

    Now I need to find a decent strap for it.


    Dude, your hand has neither hair nor veins!

    Nah, I have two systems on my network with single cores. One of which is an old 733Mhz Coppermine, even! Great computer, that. Of course, one of my workstations at work has a dual core Xeon at 3.0 Ghz, and the other has a pair of Quad Core 3.0 Ghz chips. The friggen thing sails. :) On topic post. Just bought this, used Nikkor 18-135 f/3.5-5.6, from a local photog store for $200. Will be my walkabout lens on the D200 until I can upgrade: [​IMG]

    You have two systems on your network with more than a single core though. I don't. I have a computer with a Socket A Thunderbird 1300 and one with a socket 939 Athlon64 3000+...

    You and I both. I still have an ancient AMD XP3500+ single core... Waiting for the Intel Q9450 quad to be released this month for the new build, I can't wait. Already have the rest of the components picked out. I'm going all out with this one, it's going to be a design monster.
