Wow. This gets better with every update. The clear cast effect is perfect for the cockpit. I really like the look you were able to achieve. Is this the method that you intend to use for other pats of the ship that have panels with multicolored lights? Great stuff. Keeps those updates coming. :)

Yeah it's been about the same for me too. I stop several times a week at the local Targets and can't find a thing. I have had a $50 giftcard since my birthday in January that I've only managed to use up halfway... It is just so hard to find anything these days at retail.

I've considering ordering cases online but with the OT and PT mixed waves doesn't work for me. I only collect OT nowadays and would have to try and sell nearly half of every case I'd buy. And with money being what it is for me lately, I just can't afford to do that.

Nice work Travis. It sure feels good to come in under budget. :)

I SHATTERED my $1500 goal for the year. Instead of spending money I ended up going nearly $2000 under budget and making $489 back on the year. That's the first time I've ever done that since I started collecting back in '96 and '97. I don't know that I can repeat it, but I'm sure glad to have done that well. I probably would have been a bit harder if OT Vintage stuff wasn't hard to come by around me earlier in the year. I was tight on budget the last few months of 2010 so I did end up passing on a few items I really would have liked to have picked up, like the Target Hoth Battlepacks. But in the end I wound up picking up most everything I really wanted this year. :)

Man things sure changed for me between January of last year and the end of December. For 2010 I had set a goal of  spending $1500 or less for the year... I ended up making $289. I doubt I'll be able to duplicate that this year but I think I can probably keep my number under $1000 for 2011. And with the way the Vintage figures have been distributed I don't think that'll be a problem at all for me. :)

wow!  that is pretty cool!  One thing though about uverse and me...  I live in a neighborhood.  Uverse is available for those that live on the south side of the hood and not to me on the north...  I have made a bunch of calls/emails requests for that to be fixed/helped over the years and nothing.

Hopefully comcast will step up and do this too.

Or Comcast can just piss off. I hate that company. They have a virtual monopoly here in Denver, we have no other cable choice. >:(

This is the second year in a row I've had to miss the draft and have the computer draft for me. And this is also the second year in a row in which I got a high draft seed. And just like I did last year I wound up with two, maybe three players that I would have picked on me team. Is it too early to throw in the towel on the season?  ::)

I think this may be what you are looking for

there are more here

Newegg rocks.

Thanks smash. I found one a little later last night. I did a little reading on Cnet and decided on this one. We'll see how it works.

We sell an HDMI switcher from Phillips at WalMart, with more models found online.

But why would I want to buy anything from Wal-Mart?

I have a bit of a dilemma... I have a slightly older HDTV. I bought it about 3-4 years ago and it has been a great TV to me. I've never had any problems with it and it works perfectly. I'm moving next week and I'm finally going to be using it in the family room as my entertainment TV. Here's the catch, because the TV is older it only has one HDMI port. This was never a problem before, I've never needed to connect more than one HDMI capable device. Now I have 3, my Xbox, my PS3, and the HD DVR. I don't want to have to ghetto it up and physically switch the cable every time I want to use a different device, and I can't necessarily afford a new TV. So here's my question, does anyone know of any kind of splitter exists so I can can use all three devices at the same time? I found some but they seem to work the other way. They have one input and four outputs, i.e. one Xbox that can be played on four TV screens, not four devices on the one TV. Even that splitter was like $125.

Has anyone one else run into this issue? Does anyone know of any good and reliable HDMI switchers?

After selling off $660 worth of Star Wars stuff in the last week I decided to go ahead and preorder the new 360S Halo Reach Special edition today. I traded in a few games to get an extra $72 to put towards it. Hopefully I'll be able to sell the copy of the game that comes with it, seeing as how I decided to preorder the Legendary Edition of the game as well...

Has anyone used the Hard Drive transfer kit? I was wanting to transfer all of my stuff from my old Xbox to the current one but I'm not quite sure what the best way to do so would be. The guy at Gamestop was saying that you can buy the kit, use it, then return it. For some reason I didn't trust he knew exactly what he was talking about though.
