So I got some aluminum stock yesterday and a little mill bit and made myself a spacer. The combination of the spacer and just a little bit out of the motorbox and I had an engine hanging where it is supposed to be. I need to clean the edges of the spacer up a little bit but anyone see anything that doesn't look right?
Jacob, what size skis were you using for the 72 extra? And I got to read the magic words today "out for delivery"

I just went through the post reorg to the inner reorg within a reorg.

So, I know how you feel.

LOL, I just did "Meet and Greets" with my team and all of the new teams that we were supposed to be working with. Now we will quietly scurry away and reshuffle again since some key folks turned in their resignations.

I bought the Du-Bro 826's, they work great, the spring isn't super strong but does the job for sure! I'll bring them to the field on the 6th just in case we can't get it cleared. Here is the link for them... http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0006O4HUY

Nice Job on your AJ! Looks Great!

So the Xoom Comes out today at a whopping $1079 Price tag with a 2 yr contract!!! OUTRAGEOUS!

http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2380808,00.asp

To those thinking about purchasing please do not, we should stand against the price gouging that is going on in the tablet world.

You can get a 104" AJ for less than that!!!!

$599 for the tablet with WiFi.... seems reasonable to me. Its the verizon service at $20 per month is cheaper than what I pay on my DroidX. Seems like a good deal to me...... but I will not be buying one :-)

My iTouch is starting to kick the bucket and I look at the cost difference between a touch and ipad and it doesn't make sense to pay the extra difference. Especially with the availability of networks and the fact that I don't see throwing a tablet in my pocket to listen to tunes while I'm flying. Now some man-pris with the extra big pockets might make a good ipad holder
