| O-T Lounge|| My first ebay case - would you be happy with this resolution? - Gaston on 5/21/13 at 2:00 pm|
I bought a 'jambox' off of ebay. I researched it thoroughly, and most at the price I paid, 130, were factory refurbed and it said so on the box. This one said new and the name implied some sort of tech sales with a ton of positive feedback.
The jambox wasn't new, but appeared to be some sort of d...

| O-T Lounge|| Anyone have a TDK 2 or 3 speaker 'boombox'? - Gaston on 5/9/13 at 11:44 am|
Thinking of pulling the trigger but some of the reviews scare me. Electronics that have firmware updates seem nutty to me, outside of a phone or something you'd already be hooking up to a computer. They seem pretty cool for an iPod hookup. I'm looking for something to listen to outside and I like...
| Outdoor Board|| Are plastic Yaks repairable? - Gaston on 5/6/13 at 10:02 am|
I took out the yak this weekend for the kids but it was nothing more than a big plastic anchor. One end's busted pretty good. Got it home and noticed some damage, so I picked at a piece and it came right off. Now it's got a giant hole in it. Think the garbage man will pick this up? Should I jus...
| Food and Drink Board|| Being an American about espresso... - Gaston on 5/2/13 at 12:47 pm|
So funny that you can get a giant cup of espresso here. A triple espresso from PJ's is surprisingly huge. This would be 14 shots in France. I'm going to swill this back and be weird as frick all afternoon.
I feel bad when I go to a proper restaurant with an espresso machine and order a doubl...
| O-T Lounge|| iPhone 4 modification gone wrong. - Gaston on 4/29/13 at 8:40 pm|
Broke the sonofabitching glass installing the clear back on an iPhone 4S. This one was hard to find with the apple logo and real glass. For some reason the metal pin that held the last one on was broken off inside the phone and I cracked the new glass trying to get it to sit flush. Oh well. Off ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Dinner at NOLA last Friday...impressions. - Gaston on 4/29/13 at 10:28 am|
Nutty place. Seemed to be on a wait all night, but at least 1/3 of the tables weren't seated. I guess a hundred dollar handshake does really work.
They ran out of the bottle of red we chose after the first one, I didn't check the bill to see if the one the waitress selected for us was really th...

Took it apart and removed the back glass pieces...replaced them with bamboo inserts.

| O-T Lounge|| Anyone else take their iPhone 5 apart? - Gaston on 4/16/13 at 3:42 pm|
I have a question I can't quench with the internet...I took my phone apart last night to install bamboo back inserts but I only got 1/2 way with it.
I broke the phone down in a million, it seemed, pieces and pried the bottom glass part off. I removed all of the adhesive and put the bamboo bottom...
| Outdoor Board|| Can y'all help me find magazines? - Gaston on 4/16/13 at 10:15 am|
Who knew they were this goddamn expensive? I've searched the sites I know and can't find anything under $30 a piece for 10 shot and $40 a piece for 12.
I'll buy used, IDGAF. I have a p2000 357sig, but I can use USP compact magazines and I can use .40 caliber ones as well. That's what makes me ...

Have a few filets I was going to cook for dinner, looking for ideas...
I always like crispy edges to my fish, preparations I've liked we're called bronzed. Not sure if Grouper's right for that, like a puppy drum, or if I could pull it off even. I have a good broiler, getting some crisp under it...

I'm sure they're close to Germany, but...poof. I'd probably give the sport up if I couldn't pack a better chute....

Authentic Brie flavor? TF does that mean? The texture is crap compared to Brie and the flavor wasn't that close either. I'm gonna have to choke a bitch if this ends up in my jambon brie french bread sandwich again. Is this th...

| Food and Drink Board|| 'Unsweetened' Tea - how can we get rid of that word? - Gaston on 4/5/13 at 11:10 am|
Unsweetened? There's sweet tea and there's tea, why on earth do I get asked if I'd like unsweetened tea when I ask for tea? If I wanted sweet tea you'd think I'd just ask for it?
As a matter of fact why does coffee have to be 'black' coffee if I just want it the way it came out of the damn ma...

| Outdoor Board|| Pistol storage in a range bag? - Gaston on 4/4/13 at 3:50 pm|
I don't have a lot of stuff for my pistol so I was thinking of getting a small range bag to store it all together.
FIREClean bottle, Boresnake, Otis brush set, silicon towel, glasses and ear plugs...and ammo. Figure I could just keep it all in one spot, just worried about the pistol being stored...

on the component parts of any pistol, including the P series pistols, and is not recommended."
Is this just legalese? It's right out my operators manual. I thought those hot rounds, assuming they're just referring to 9mm, had the same chamber pressures as my 357sig? I wonder what other stresses...

What do you think?

I ordered some colored glass ones from China and the adhesive from Canada, but I'm not sure how to get the old ones off. Can't find a tutorial. Anyone pried theirs off? I broke the bottom one and I figure I'll just change both, to orange. I'll have to figure out how to get the camera lens and th...
