    It is the most fun to play, and certainly the prettiest one I have.

    Cupcake? Heresy? Pony? 4 stacks of plexi?

    I'll take eastern Lake Ontario weather over just about anywhere else's weather. Less rain, less snow, less wind, zero tornadoes.

    Patriotic/veteran shirts

    Having someone is Walmart pop out say,"May I help you?" would never happen, so you don't expect it online.

    Patriotic/veteran shirts

    I get misdirects on MLP often, but only on mobile. I open a new tab and close the hijacked one. I'm not going to bother the front desk with it...

    Help with PC

    I didn't have issues with my first Dell laptop until extreme old age caught up with it (12 years) but found used parts on eBay. My current Dell had to go back but it was a three day turn around.

    Help with PC

    I don't expect support from them for cheap, used hardware. They took over IBM's PC business, and in fact we're building IBMs before that, and so was Acer. Side note, did you ever have to negotiate the IBM website? Freaking vast. Google was faster, would take you the page you wanted.

    Help with PC

    I have bought two refurbished Lenovos, a laptop and a desktop and neither have had issues so far. The laptop was bought two years ago, the desktop about six months ago. For $300 CAD each, why not?

    Who's Who in Tube Amps

    Update for my first real Marshall in 30 years: Used 2525C Mini Jubilee Combo. I'd post a pic but Android doesn't make that easy. Picture in your mind a 20" x 20" silver box with knobs on the chrome panel and a Marshall logo on the grill cloth.

    Marshall DSL series question

    I have the DSL1HR and the Blackstar HT-1R. I like them both, and I bought the Blackstar for a stupid low price from Cosmo Music. The Mk II is cheaper than the discontinued Mk I. They are similar amps except the HT has some solid state preamp gain, I believe. I replaced V1 in the DSL with a 12AT7...

    Cupcake? Heresy? Pony? 4 stacks of plexi?

    It was just there. Picked it up and had a look. No marks on it, probably 8 lbs and a bit, slim profile neck, locking Grovers. In my money it was $1500, but a new Standard here is $3300 and up. Here, it's a good deal.

    Cupcake? Heresy? Pony? 4 stacks of plexi?

    Is $1100 US for a 2016 LP Standard a good price? There was a lovely cherry sunburst one at L&M when I bought the amp. I don't want it, just wondering.
