Re: Downton Abbey '14 season

We have seen the entire season including the Christmas special. It has it's ups and downs (no pun intended) but overall it's not terrible in my opinion. Fellowes is is planning a new production and so season 5 is supposed to be the last -- which makes sense to me. I still say Season 2 was my favour...

Im a big fan, along with many others, of evernote http://www.evernote.com/about/download/iphone/ clive I agree. It is multi-platform so you can also download the desktop client and have your notes pretty much everywhere. What if you got a bluetooth keyboard? It'd make it easier to type notes into y...

Long time no see, fellas! Well, I've been a hardcore Android user since the G1. Last week I upgraded (or downgraded depending on your point of view) to an iPhone 4S. Yes, I loved the customization Android offered but where it falls short, in my opinion, is build quality from the various manufacturer...

Wait for the iPad.
Doubtful. The iPad is a jack of all trades and master of none. The kindle is purpose built for this.

There's also a clothing store, Robert R. Bailey I believe, that carries pretty much the entire T&H line and some Vulfixes. I seem to recall they're on Louisiana.

I second the recommendation for Model Pharmacy (for the chile stew and the shave goods) 8)

I have a love/hate relationship with my Pearl. Some days I love the Suretype but on other days it's a pain. Mainly my issue is with words that are not in the dictionary or when trying to use abbreviations. But when typing common words it is quick and easy. The plus side is its size. Very pocket frie...

What you are referring to with "Repeating-Magazine Cutthroats" is the Feather Razor which is much less lame than a shavette, it even comes with an Injector-type loader. It is inevitable that you will try a real straight one day so just stop defending the shavette. It is a piss-poor excuse for a str...

You could get an alldata diy subscription but its really not worth it if you don't work on your vehicle yourself all that often. It's about $28/year.

Good luck everyone.
