I wonder if the gentleman in question has attended any anti-war rallies lately.....

Ultima 8 Circuit boards.

Posted By Tony Aguire

Anyone know what the currant draw on the Ultima 8 circuit board would be without the drive motor running. Just curious, looking at a mod to allow the PEC to retain its memory after being shut off. Thanks All

Attached is a picture of My wife and our new "Baby". She is an 80% Timberwolf female F3. Ah the joys of parent-hood! She seems like she will be pretty happy-go-lucky. Likely might be named Venus, but we are looking at other alternatives.

Excitement in the house!
Ordered a set of Williams Optics Binoviewers from ATWB...can't wait to try them out on the C8. Any suggestions on getting the most out of these?

No more SUV'S?

Well, almost
GM announced today that they will be "reviewing" the Humvee model lineup with one outcome being completely discontinuing the lineup. Apparently, high gas pices are to blame. De-ja-vu 1970's anyone?

Can't we all just get along?

Posted By Tony Aguire

Right, Left.....Conservative, liberal....Keep reading all sorts of posts, some pretty caustic. It seems like politics has boiled down to us against them. Problem is is we are them, and them is us. We are all AMERICANS.....We are fighting ourselves. And all the while we are being taken over bit by bit by foreign interests and nations. China will practically own us pretty soon, the way things are going. Try calling any sort of customer service rep without talking to some one in a timezone more than 4 hours away. Buying some thing made in America anymore requires a trip to a specialty store....

What the heck is going on?

I am not a whacko isolationist, I just love my country and hate to see it's identity being lost amid infighting and globalization.

Ya know what I am sayin' ?

How dirty is TO dirty

Posted By Tony Aguire

I have had my C8 for 6 years now. So far, I have only blown off the corrector twice with compressed air. Well, I was looking down the optical tube and am noticing some dust on the mirror, and the corrector is dirty again. When I bought the scope (used) from Photon Instraments in Mesa, Warren had cleaned it up before I took it home. Is there a hard and fast rule as far as how often one should open up the tube and clean up inside?

The DEBATE...not much of one.

Posted By Tony Aguire

First theses guys had to be prompted several times to address eachother. Lots of stuttering, halting speach. Not much substance (to my ears anyway). I guess I expected more. I really came away with an overwhelming sense that these guys are actually scared of eachother. :S

Obama '08

Posted By Tony Aguire

This may take some of your time. But how anyone with a decent conscience can vote for this guy is beyond me.

Epecially after his little slip near the end of the first video, it is quite obvious this guy has a very hard time telling the truth.....
