Where'd that guy go to? He was a good sort.
I've seen him around Ozbargain, though can't recall a recent post.

 

P'raps he's just busy.

 

He's fine and busy, plus he's just doing less and less computery stuff these days.

+ $15 each for six pairs of undies, delivered

+ Comfortable fabric, snug fit with Aussie measurements

+ Colours match images, haven't faded or shrunk after one wash

+ Noticeably drier than regular cotton

+ Stitching seems very good, as does the elastic

 

- Label on waistband has infuriatingly scratchy corners (tediously removed with thread unpicker, they're great now)

- Packaging is non-recyclable plastic

 

Overall, I would definitely order these again when my regular pairs wear out.

Tedious and fiddly. Why they thought these were needed is beyond me.

Well I finally did it, I bought a new ALIENWARE W560630AU M17XR5 Laptop from JB HiFi, they had the 15% off, so $2547 and was a bargain.

 

Problem is I'm still in the Pilbara's red desert until Thursday night and the misses picked it up and its sitting in my office, I want it NOW, told the kids that they can play with the box as long as they don't crush it.

When I get home I'm kickin the misses out to the couch and I'm going to sleep with it. :)

No offense, but I fail to see how purchasing anything alienware sells can constitute a bargain.

I looked at Vemon, Razor, Asus, Alienware, and decided to buy the Alienware for various reasons . First my HP (Hot Plate) turned into a BBQ, Build quality, new tech, warranty and good support and could walk into a store and physically pick it up and have a real look at it which is what I did before flying away. 15% off was cool.

 

There all expensive machines and I need a strong built chassis machine as I travelle remote bush for work. Weight and price I can compromise on but I would like know why you think that its not a bargain and what would have been a better choice. There are reviews on PC Tech but no top ten 2013 shoot outs for gaming laptops.

I need to practice in a way that costs me less in parts and downtime. Works well with my controller which is great.

I'm guessing he works out bush so he cant lug a desktop or something out on site.

 

 

I've done about 2 months total up on site living on camp this year and I can tell you now I missed just being able to open up a game and relax instead of just sitting on my macbook air the entire not or drinking like the rest of the guys do after 12 hour days and going to the gym.

I am glad I didn't pay full price for that when I got mine.

 

$25 with free shipping + other sims like Reflex and RealFlight included. :D

I'm not saying its not a good purchase. But its damn expensive for what it is. With the explanation given by him above I can understand why he would purchase such a machine however.

My plans are for stuff like 0.8 to 1.6mm wall square steel tube, angle iron and Aluminium extrusion. type things. Hopefully more accurate/cleaner cuts than the recipro saw, or angle grinder.

 

There are reviews of people using it to cut stiock up to 15mm which I think is an impressive feat for a cordless tool.
