Re: Triwa's Skultuna III

Not for me I'm afraid. The strap does not have enough holes and I like the last hole no farther than 1/4 inch from the tip anyway :lol:

And here I thought my car has decent gas mileage at 38 city and 50 highway... The 4runner is way cooler though! :grin:

There’s a channel here that’s been running a lot of anime. Unusual for an old guy maybe, but some of it’s really good. “Spirited Away”, “Howl’s Moving Castle”,and “Cowboy Bebop” for starters.
I've seen "Spirited Away", of course. Thanks for the other two.

"Your Name" is really great.

Re: Laptop with Windows 7; asking for your thoughts, advise, recommendations

Why do you specifically want windows 7? Beyond the limiting your choice of laptops it’s not a fantastic system IMHO. After checking out the windows 10 tutorials on youtube. I'd like to stay with something I'm accustomed to, basic straight forward. ... :grin: As someone who yearned for the return of...

Re: Laptop with Windows 7; asking for your thoughts, advise, recommendations

The first one looks great. Full HD display + an SSD and a good CPU are the most important criteria.
The second one is a higher end laptop, perhaps a little older and its SSD is on the small side but if the warranty is OK then it may be a good choice as well.
Don't get a laptop without an SSD.

Windows Defender in Windows 10 is the best version they ever made. Some reviews say it is on par with the others.

Re: New Bulgari Octo l’Originale Solotempo

Chrono is nice. Agree with the LW comparison. For some reason that Ti look of the Finissimo and Solotempo really appeals. Problem is I don’t know really anything about the brand as a watchmaker, just as a luxury group. Something about buying a watch from a company that’s a watchmaker first and fore...

This is clearly a joke. Just look at the size of the crown hidden inside the CG and how close it is to the bezel - it looks completely unusable.

Re: Help needed with potential buyer

^^^^ This is why I am thinking that it might be better if the buyer paid as G&S instead of F&F. PayPal itself states that when using G&S the transaction is "Covered by PayPal Buyer and Seller Protection". That of course would not protect the buyer against someone using a stolen account but PayPal co...
