  1. I'm intersted in tagging along for a 3-day AT trip through penn.
  2. Hello Head-case. It is with great happiness that I type some more about my pen. As you can see, I have had this pen for a bit over a year now, and have used it daily. I did some reversible mods to it (sort of) which I reversed and am actually pretty happy with the pen's overall performance - out of the box! My previously mentioned concerns about the finish of the pen were largely unfounded. The finish has held up QUITE nicely - it did indeed get a little shiny (and has *still* not gotten uniform...) but has not scratched through, except right at the tip where the pen has been dropped onto the floor countless times. I was also concerned about the pocket clip, and it has stood up well. I recently started clipping the pen into my man-satchel, so the clip is getting used, and it is holding up well. As previously mentioned I put a few standard parker refills in the pen. They fit without modifications if you are careful to align everything well. I started with a few refills salvaged from free pens you get at trade shows.... This was a mistake & I am happy to say that there are worse refills than the Goliath . Then I had the pen using a Quink refil for a few weeks. This was a HUGE mistake, as the Quink is verry non-waterfast, and a few drops of water erased some work I was working on at work. Oops. I reverted to the OEM goliath cartridge. The cartridge is still a bit on the "stiff" side, but for a cartridge that has run for basically a full year I gotta give it some credit. Please make no mistake, I am anxiously awaiting the day it finally fucking dies so I can put a Fischer refill in without being wasteful but I'm not so disgusted that I cant use this one up. All in all, I am happy with this purchase. My only complaint is that the Goliath cartridge lasts too long, and is not bad enough to just throw away. Even it has its merits.
  3. Nothing like this would ever happen on postjack's forum. PS: thread of the year.
  4. Happened last year too... I wonder if this will become a strategic weight saving method
  5. I started jumping rope in an effort to get fit(er) but its not going as well as I had hoped. I keep skipping workouts.
  6. Happy Birthday Ben!
  7. How is it that we have gone this long without a thread for puns? Was it oversight, or simply good taste? I thought this kickstarter campaign was a little fishy and wanted to share with you: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2078545510/the-salmon-leather-project
  8. http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/tubes-valves/160312-balance-ccs-long-tailed-pairs.html The only thing that matters to AC balance is the matching of the plate resistors, and that you have a tail-CCS. DC balance is subject to tube parameters, but who cares in a cap coupled circuit?
  9. One time, a long time ago, Al asked why little spikes sometimes appeared on his ice cubes. While the question was answered to everyone's satisfaction at the time, I thought this video may be interesting. http://www.iflscience.com/chemistry/why-do-spikes-form-ice-cubes
  10. Remember Rule 5. You will get it done. Just ride up and down your driveway a bunch.
  11. Happy Birthday Brent!
  12. Happy Birthday Chris!
  13. Thanks everyone! I had a great birthday.
  14. You can probably figure out a replacement battery without tooo much work. No idea what it *needs* but are there any markings on the battery? Google that. If you can figure out what voltage the battery was, and dont mind having something kind of ugly, it should not be too hard to find a not-quite-drop-in replacement that works perfectly.
