    I'm not much of a cross-stitcher....

    ....but that chart makes me want to build ST-characters w. beads! You know, the kind you melt together with an iron... perhaps even the tiny ones; then I could make each character small enough to make ear rings from them :bolian:

    I bought a Condo last weekend. Pretty crazy when I think about it.

    I needed a composite cable with 3.5 mm jacks at both ends.

    I know: who needs a composite cable these days? :lol:

    But I really needed it to plug my media-player into a wireless transmission-device (instead of drilling holes in the floor and pulling a cable from the living room into the cellar (and sometimes further: into the yard)), you see both devices only have that small hole and both devices came with 3.5 mm jack to RCA-connector-cables.

    The guy in the store couldn't even tell me if the cable I needed even existed! -Instead he sold me a couple of these:

    I saved a bit though - the tv, I'm connecting this way, is only mono so I only needed two couplers :lol:

    My newest purchase is a part for the shower to stop it from leaking.

    My new place just new that I was going to own it and decided to wait until the day after I signed the title and deed before breaking. :p

    ^ awesome. I wouldn't be surprised if Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory has a shirt like that.

    I would rather make these things myself than buying them. That said, I did find the site of another trekkie on-line (it's amazing what you can find on-line!) who'd already pulled numerous soundbites from Trek and had them there free to download...

    The only part of the sound environment on my pad that wasn't trek, the incoming text-message-sound, was changed to the TNG door chime this week!

    Since my pad is a Nokia I find it only natural to use the so-called 'futurized' version of the Nokia-tune as my ringtone ;)

    The last time I had a tone like that, it went off in public and I got laughed at. We'll see if things are any different this time around.
