    I found myself with a fairly large, non-transferable, credit, and a coupon, after a price adjustment on an engagement ring, so I bought the current limited edition Bulova Lunar. I've never owned a black watch, and it's a bit large, but I like the look and the features, so I'm hoping this will make a good weekend watch.

    I have a balanced SQ that KG fixed. It belonged to Headphone Addict. It really sounds very good, but the split volume pots is a pain.

    I’d just buy whatever watch you like best.

    My uncle contacted me out of the blue, this week. Apparently, in the mid-60s, my father owned a Universal Geneve, which he traded to his younger brother (my uncle, and the only one of five siblings still living) for something that my uncle can't remember, after my dad bought the GMT Master. My uncle wore the watch for years, but stuck it in a drawer after buying his first Rolex in the early 80s. He apparently recently found the watch in said drawer, going through things after finally retiring, and is sending it to me. I assume it's a Polerouter, of some kind, but I really have no idea. I'll report back when I have it, which should be next week. I'm sure it will need a full service. I'm excited.
  6. And now what did you do TODAY?

    Thanks guys! And yes, that other Oxford would be quite a commute.
  7. And now what did you do TODAY?

    If they drive to Ohio, sure! That really sucks, CJ. It sounds to me like the cop just wanted to make his/her job as easy as possible. Depending on what the fines/insurance issues are, it might be worthwhile hiring a traffic attorney.
  8. And now what did you do TODAY?

    Miami seems to be one of those places where people stay for decades, and I'm sure Oxford itself is a big part of it. I'm excited. I'm less excited about the moving process, but I have a while before I need to worry about that.
  9. And now what did you do TODAY?

    Miami in Ohio, in my case. The position is the General Technology Manager for the bookstore system (Miami U is one of the few public schools to still have an independent bookstore, and it pretty much takes care of all non-departmental repairs, along with distance learning, educational tech, new-technology, campus-wide).

    Thanks guys!
  11. And now what did you do TODAY?

    It's not something that I've quite done yet, as the official offer won't be until next week, but I have accepted a position at Miami University. It's a pretty perfect fit for my background and education, I'll be visible to the whole campus and, unlike so many academic staff positions, it has a built-in growth path. It's nice being the first choice, instead of the second, for once. It will be a bit of a commute to get from Cincinnati to Oxford, but I imagine that we'll move there fairly soon (Oxford is a beautiful semi-rural town, and Miami's campus and the city of Oxford itself are regularly rated as some of the best places to work and best places to live, in the entire USA, with Forbes having rated Oxford as the very best college-town on more than one occasion). I'm pretty excited.
  12. And now what did you do TODAY?

    Oh, he seems to like me a lot.
  13. And now what did you do TODAY?

    I spent a lot of time with the five year old whom I hope to be worthy of being the step-father to.
  14. Happy Birthday Gene!

    Happy birthday, Gene!
  15. Is this a good deal?

    I have mostly used Crucial and OWC SSDs. A solid state drive makes a massive difference.
