Tak TOQ-130?

Posted By Tinchi Lee

the front page of anacortes says

"Takahashi has announced a short-focal-length 5" refractor, the TOQ-130. To be on our waiting list, click here"

is there any further info to this scope? i was looking at a FSQ-106 but maybe i should hold on for a while.

Good daily driver/scope hauler?

Posted By Tinchi Lee

superb handling, great fuel economy, quick on its feet, and reasonable price. what more could i ask for?

i only have one garage space and wonder if it would be a good for carrying a smallish dob (10" portaball), 2 people, and an observing chair. kind of pushing it a bit, but i can only have one car... :S how "livable" would it be as a daily driver?

auto tranny is an $3300 option... better learn how to drive stick wink

Dream Cars You May Actually Buy

Posted By Tinchi Lee

Instead of dreaming about Koenigseggs or Paganis, I prefer cars that are within reasonable reach of typical budgets, maybe with some serious stretching. I am the most interested in:

low-end: Mitsubishi Evo 10
mid-end: BMW Z4-M Coupe or Porsche Cayman (S or non-S)
hi-end: Noble M15 (if it comes to the US)

in fact when it comes time to trade-in my current car, the mitsu, bimmer and porsche would definitely be on my shopping list.

what's on YOUR list?

Re: University censorship

Jim Babcock said:

It is nothing new to conservatives that Columbia University and other liberal institutions censor anyone that strays from the strict socialist dogma of the modern Democrat Party.{820DDE24-39CE-439B-AB09-1758E183E11F}

But CU allowing Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to speak is even worse. From what I have read, the University has decided to lock the press and anyone who may disrupt his speech out. Looks like another opportunity for security to use their stun guns. smile

Anyone who thinks that Universities and liberals are about diversity and open mindedness, must be... well a liberal. wink

IMO he should suddenly and mysteriously get deathly ill or disappear just as he lands on American soil.

as a double-degree alum of Columbia, i feel obliged to refute your charges.

the minuteman fiasco was a blunder to the school's reputation for free speech. however, the students involved had been reprimanded appropriately. (i'm sure some would disagree, but anything less than capital punishment wouldn't satisfy them anyway).

and that's EXACTLY why anyone who may disrupt the ahmandinejad (sp?) speech should be locked out. Columbia does not need another allegation of censoring the speakers.

kudos to Columbia for giving ahmandinejad a chance to speak, however unagreeable many may find.

THAT is the core of free speech, don't you think?


ps: if you dig deep enough, you can find charges of censorship everywhere
