    The kids get the candy on Halloween; the grownups get cupcakes the night before.

    Bought a Casio Palmtronic LD-81 calculator at a flea market today. Works great and its in great condition.

    In case you dont know the specifics, its an old calculator with the early 70's type VDF round tube display.

    EDIT: Lets get one thing straight, they hadn't mastered the fine art of soldering back in 1975. Took it apart for cleaning. All the wires from the battery to pcb came off. And i was wearing my fragile object hand at the time. Bugger all, bring it on!

    I've always been a bit jealous of Barrows (for obvious reasons), but wow!!

    Last thing I've purchased, thanks to gift cards: A cordless hand vacuum. Not exciting but practical!

    Nice, I got some good music off of there recently. Mainly 80's stuff with some Weird Al thrown in :).

    I just got my Manchester City iPhone skin. Which btw fits terribly. At least the front.
    The back is great and the sides are decent.

    I wonder why? One is from 1962, another from 1960 and 2 of her as Barrows.

    Today though, I bought some milk on my way home.

    And by "fire-sale" you mean "getting stolen" and by "laptop" you mean "critical piece of a fucking spaceship".
