Must be an old guy thing.  Small screen, low res.  

Same as you Matt.  

New 'puter in the fall.  Hoping DVD burner prices are sufficiently down by then.  Still running the 333 MHz (w. 584 MB ram).  It works fine, for now, though it was pretty funny to see my wife cursing the machine given that she has a 1.8 G laptop.  Still, my home machine is faster than the one at work.  54 months without defragmenting and counting.  Welcome to the government. :-\

I have two credit cards.  One for my real life and one that is used for paypal and online purchases only.  The latter has a $1000 balance and instructions that it is to go no higher.  Ever.  Limits my liability and the shock value too.

I am very sorry this happened to you.  I have had  "irregular" charges on my card previously.  I don't know what it is like where you are, but in Canada the onus is on the retailer to provide proof of purchase by that user.  Of course, if all charges are online, that could make it tough.  If they were regular fraudulent charges, the sig should tell the story right off.  

Good luck.

Well, have you?  

You go somewhere and you always see the same person.  It may or may not be someone you know or are slightly familiar with.  They are ALWAYS there.  

I had a girlfriend in high school and after we broke up, including after high school, she was just always where I was.  It was downright spooky.  (FTR she broke up with me).  But highschool was a long time ago.  

More recently though, I seem to have found a new "friend".  Where I am, they are never far behind.  Maybe even there before me.  Worse than previously though, I know this person and have had dealings with them.  Now, whatever I do or so, they follow along right behind like a lovesick puppy dog.  It's gone from spooky to downright creepy.  This person has other people watching me, rat's me out when I do something wrong.  I really don't know what to do?  Can you help.

Ah, never mind, I'm just messing with JediMac.  Stay away from those Canadian threads you big weirdo :P ;D

I'm sorry Depmode, I'm old and didn't understand a word you said ;)  Just ask Matt, he'll tell ya ;D  

Sorry fellas, only one sticker left.  Jeez, I even had to open my lowly US carded one so I could see what Luke looked like under there.  Nice figure, it is.  If I find more, I'll let ya know.  

But that would have to be one very big box of cereal.  Now, as for Matt's wife....

BTW, anyone need cubes?  I still have some left.  Waaaaaay too much raisin bran last summer.  Talk about load time.

toypalace (Germany) is the place for these.  Prices are quasi reasonable but shipping is a tad scary for North America.

Vaders helmet display

I didn't find the other display, though they had it before, or the figs themselves.  Cool stuff.

I think Bob and Dale are both working.  Night Owls.  

Presumably those are the kids you speak of.  Junior.

Dang.  Matt's wife didn't make the list.  Color me dissappointed. :o

Hee, hee, another pegger.

Do NOT trust JediMac.  Just a little friendly local advice.

Wha.... me?  I never cause anyone any trouble.  Geez, my llama replacement says it all.

And I am in Winnipeg.  I'm not near anyone or anything. ;D

Belated welcome Cory.  Can't sleep, so might as well be cordial.  

Beware that first name stuff though.  You might get a thread with your name in it then get locked out for a week. ;)

Uh, from 50-99 would be what?   ;D

Hmm, maybe I shouldn't irritate you, lest JediMac impose another sabbatical on me.  

gotta run

The lighting makes it look worse than it is. In the picture, it looks like there is a huge dent above the "RS" in Wars, but in reality, it is just a little bit of a wave in the card.

I think I'll go for the Ewoks next ;) Gotta love fuzzy cannibal bears

Ewoks suck! :P

Collector's Tips / Re: Keeping up with figures

It's all in my mind.  Mwah hahahaha.  Now if that don't scare ya, nothing will.  

I know most everything I have, simply by memory.  There are a few gaps as I traded quite a bit away last year, but still, it's pretty easy to know that POTF2 is complete, carded, except for Darktrooper, who remains a gap.  Too much for one figure, though I suppose it won't really come down in price.  And I suppose I paid just as much for that accursed wedge figure.  

I reckon there are about 150 loose figures and probably a couple of hundred carded.  Somewhere around that number anyway.  

I used to love the checklists at  Wave by wave was pretty neat.  I think Hasbro has done an interesting thing with respect to tracking with the Saga line and numbering the figures (at least on US cards).  The lists here are pretty good and straightforward.  

Must be my age preventing me from using a database 8)

Alas, poor Camaro, I knew him well.  

'68, kind of a pale lime green and only a six but I loved that car and would kill to have it again.  I paid (sit down) a whopping $2500 for it back in 84.  Sold it for $3000.  Boy do I regret that.  If I could find one for under $10K now, I would buy it.  

I like the 67-69 Camaro/Firebird, 64 1/2-68 and 70 Mustangs.  I liked the superbee and a couple of other gas guzzling beasts as well.  Of course, all are classics now and out of my price range.  

Gotta have centerlines on it though.

Oh well.
