    Very carefully phrased, because the other one should be killed with FIRE! (Sorry, barrelntrigger).

    Apropos of nothing: has anyone else been having trouble with getting emails from styleforum? Mine just stopped. I guess I should check my spam folders....

    Emails from PM's always come. Daily subscription emails are hit and miss.

    I get one update email about every week and a half. Not that I need it anyway.

    Good stuff my man! On another note, got back from a mini vacation to find 200+ unread posts. Good job guys! I'm glad we are back to posting cool finds. Nothing much from me lately I'm afraid, however I did pick up a super boss Toshiba ghetto blaster. Thing weighs about 30 pounds and originally came with a remote, alas, it was nowhere to be found. I'm going to try to get my computer fixed today, so hopefully I can start posting pics again soon.

    I turned off all subscription emails, they are pointless. I have retained PM emails and I get them almost instantaneously. If you find that you are not receiving them, add the email address "[email protected]" to your contacts list to avoid messages being relegated to the spam folder.

    amazing haul dm7, your finds give me inspiration to get out and thrift, but also make it feel pointless because I know I will never score quite like that!

    Sorry for the double post, I also picked up a POW J Press jacket, fits me pretty well but I've got enough of those as it is so I'm going to offer it up here for cost plus shipping. Pics to come. Also want to give a shout out to TDP, ocoony, 330CK, Horse's_Ass, and everybody else that I've recently done trades/sales with. A pleasure as always, gentlemen. :cheers:

    If I get lucky on the bay [​IMG].
    [​IMG]Wes, impressive as always.
    Thanks, bud. I almost left the Charvet cuz after spending 10 minutes at the tie rack, I felt my brain was melting...

    Hahaha, it's ok, honesty is appreciated. After 30 min. at the GW, I lost my will to thrift. I picked those up only to have something to show for. I'll try to sell it on the bay and maybe some lucky person will burn it for me.

    DM7: As everyone else said, Wow! Epic post - 40k was just icing on the cake! Good to see you're still around!




    These things are $$$$. The bigger and heavier, the better. These are usually the ones with two antennas (Rabbit-ear style). Nice find! Care to share which model it is?
