  1. How can one keep them out of the flaked main under the sail cover? Little bitches are driving me nuts.
  2. A number of friends have tried Sleep Number, and have had complaints ranging from mechanical issues to the big one of a hard ridge down the middle of the bed where the two mattresses meet. We just spent a lot of time researching and looking at new mattresses, and ended up buying a Saatva "luxury firm" king. After 4 months, we absolutely love it. Soft enough and gives in all the right places, and firm enough for me. Right amount of "bounce" for the fun times as well. www.saatvamattress.com
  3. Maybe one day, if I ever get decent, a semi-hollow electric or a nice steel string acoustic. I'm good for a while though. The ones you mentioned are nice, though.
  4. Wife gave me a nylon stringed acoustic/electric Breedlove for Christmas, and I'm stumbling through. Having fun, but it's hard putting my classical music training from years ago aside to learn to play from tabs and improvise. I picked up the book, "Guitar Scales in Context" by Joseph Alexander off Amazon. My instructor is impressed by the book so it may be worth looking into. Goes into all the different modes. And from it I can agree with Raked about the minor pentagon is. Oh, and within a month or so of starting, I picked up an Epi Les Paul. Let the addiction begin!
  5. Jethro Tull Thick as a Brick. Bought in '73. Still have it along with every album I've ever owned.
  6. Thanks. The smile cost us.
  7. Thanks guys!
  8. That is a problem. I have the same issue.
  9. Hey folks, haven't been on here in a while. Life has gotten in the way of online forums, it seems. But, can you do a me a solid and sign an online petition? There was a girl murdered at the University of Texas this week. The girl was a close friend and classmate of one of my daughter's close sorority sisters. After she was killed, she was dumped into a creek behind the dorm my daughter lived in last year. Being one who believes she can change her little slice of the world, my daughter Amanda started a change.org petition yesterday to get more emergency telephones installed on the campus and the "West U" area where a lot of students live. I would appreciate it if you all would sign it: https://www.change.org/p/university-...ar-ut-s-campus It costs nothing and might just do some good. Thanks.
  10. Anybody have any experience with these things, such as the one made by NRG Marine: http://www.pyiinc.com/sonihull/ Recent article caught my eye, and it seems like it may be a good idea if it works. A bit spendy though. Of course, we're in warm, fresh water year round.
  11. Happened to a friend a couple of years ago. She had to have abdominal surgery, and had some real problems when the wire perforated her abdomen.
  12. Bye bye warranty. Not always true! It can be removed. Yes I got the R!! Not true on removal. VAG has programmed the ecu to flag any ecu modification, and that flag cannot be reversed or removed by removing the tune. Google TD1 and Volkswagon or Audi: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?5635710-TD1-warranty-flag I know of people who removed the tune before a dealer visit for warranty work, and found themselves without a warranty because of the TD1 flag.
  13. Bye bye warranty.
  14. Congrats!
  15. Dave, I hope you jumped on that car. It's going to be a hell of a ride. The naysayers are all Subbie fans, worried about gas mileage, or other too practical things, all while missing a hell of a lot of fun. I'm currently driving a 450hp Audi RS5 that is a kick in the ass to drive. Who cares if one day it has to go in for a repair.
