What have you just bought?

Rate this question

Question

I've seen this thread at another certain forum, and it was semi interesting just to see what people were spending their money on (not bagels, coffee etc), whether it be new audio gear, photography gear, engine parts etc.

Well i bought this lense a week or two ago on ebay, the buyer wanted a cheque so it took a bit longer, but sent it via specia delivery ^_^ although i wasnt home, and the oaf forgot to leave the card to tell me he had attempted to deliver it. Anyway, I got it this morning, worth every penny. It was 46 pounds plus 10 for delivery. I bid a bit late so in the end im just glad i got it. It really is in mint condition :lol::lol:

Try to keep it to things costing more than 40 dollars or 20 quid :lol:

I wonder which 'other forum' that would be? :rolleyes:

Any way, I bought some pretty coloured rubber bands yesterday, so I could attach my remote control to the side of my NW-HD5. I have a blue silicone skin for it, and the blue band works great! Pretty exciting, eh? and only cost 99p for a big bag ;)

Hmm. Let's see.

Bought a whole bunch of supplies for making custom headphone cables as well as a few microphone caps a couple weeks back to make a set of binaurals.

Bought a whole bunch of engine parts to rebuild my rotary, along with all the balancing and machining of said parts, shooting for 9000 RPM redline.

Bought a motorized digital focuser for my telescope from JMI.

Bought another NH1 for a christmas present for my sister.

Music.

Headphones.

My wallet is in pain, but what the hell, you can't take the money with you when you're dead! :D

Hey hey Greg,

I bought a coffee on my way to work this morning, haha! :P I'm lucky as I can't get the coffee-time-management-situation under control as I'm getting ready for work...so at 6:30 am I simply go through the drive-through coffee shop down the street and can drink most of it on the drive to work, lol.

Okay, in all seriousness, as much as consumerism is cool, I'm going to branch out and say that I did another beach clean-up this past weekend. And once I was done cleaning up the crap on the shore I immediately went out on a mission to purchase the movie: American Movie, one of my all-time favorites. I owned it before but somehow lost it in a loan to a friend?/or, simply lost it. Anyways, great film...

Best,

blu

A Geforce 6800. Only €140,- with shipping. Probably the last videocard upgrade in my beloved dual Xeon workstation... (it's AGP and fast cards don't come in AGP flavors anymore).

Hey Greg,

Here's the official site, click on the synopsis at the bottom... American Movie

Oh, and I havn't seen The Constant Gardner...any good?

Recently though, I've not had much time to go to the theater to watch a movie but will probably see the new one out with Jennifer Aniston and Clive Owens. Have you seen her movie The Good Girl by chance? That one is excellent and totally worth a rent. I also really appreciate Clive Owen but have only seen him in Closer...another excellent movie.

Best,

blu

Hmm not really a just bought more like a couple weeks ago, but kind of inline with the "exam" mention above (but a lot more expensive)

$325 in Ontario Law school application fees ($175 + $75 per school) Application for 2006 entry.

plus ~$140 in LSAT registration fees.

School, even when trying to get in, definitely ain't cheap!

Anyway someone wish me luck!

Wow, them's some expensive hoses! Are those just silicone replacements for the factory rad/heater hoses?

IPB ImageIPB ImageIPB ImageIPB Image

^_^ Yeh OEM style replacements, they're pretty insane; the Temp specs are most impressive. Effectively the car (engine) could go 'complete meltdown' and these hoses would survive! Not to worry, Samco has the experience and R&D in F1.

All Samco Sport hoses are manufactured by hand using steel or aluminium mandrels. The mandrels represent the inside shape of the hose. It is because we have to manufacture the mandrels first (and they are expensive) that we cannot make one-off hoses economically.

[ oh, MDX -- Good Luck! ]

Nice, I could use a set of those hoses for my RX7. Hose clamps or something come in the box or are you reusing OEM hardware?

Shipping out the irons from my motor for machining in a few days. Tack on another $500 to the engine rebuild cost.

Which RX do you have? FB or FC3S?

:blink: Had to get all new clamps as well (worm drive). Samco does not recommend the 'perforated' ones. These below are really nice!

Electro Zinc Coated Clamp with rolled edges.

Clamping Range: 1.25" (32mm) to 1.75" (44mm)

Very high quality, made in Sweden. Excellent clamping force.

FC3S. I see they have the turbo coolant hoses which should work just fine on the non-turbo. I'm pretty sure they're routed the same way in the engine bay.

Wanted to stock up just a few blank MDs but ended up buying a pack of 80 pc. :lol: instead, used through ebay for just €40 incl. shipping. This is what i call a good price. With their theoretically possible one million re-write cycles they should still last for quite a while. ^_^
