Something good happened to me pertaining to eBay today which was nice. I've been trying to remove a forced dash out of my username for years now, and it finally let me. :D Every time I've tried to it's given me an error of "Your username can only include letters, numerals, periods, asterisks, underscores or dashes" or "Please provide a valid username." I've gone around and around with customer support over it, and the last time after being elevated to a higher tier of support was told that my new username was too similar to the old one which is why I couldn't change it. I accepted that reason as I had no other choice, and gave up. Today I was in my account settings, and on a whim I clicked edit next to my username, took the dash out, and clicked save not expecting anything, and it took it. :shock:

Reminds me of a somewhat humorous thing I read a while back, real or not, don't know, but amusing.

A teacher, always struggling to pronounce student's names, had a new African-American student, who's name was La-a.
Teacher: Is it Lay-uh, Lahah??
Mother: No, it's La-DASH-a, the dash don't be silent! :lol: :roll:


Of course, in your case, LG, I'm assuming that the dash do indeed be silent! :lol: :lol:

Ha! I remember reading about that somewhere as well! :lol: I can't remember though if it was meant as satire or actually happened.

Oh, and have been excited about attending my first RC pulling competition tomorrow, and rained out. This is actually the third time this event has been rained out, so it may not be in the cards.

While looking through the stash a couple of days ago, my 80% complete Double Dare caught my eye, so a rainy weekend may be just what it needed. :mrgreen:

If you read the below, how much do you think you would be paying for a chassis if you pre-ordered it :?:

The way it is worded, $75, but I wouldn't order one unless I was prepared to pay $110 :lol: I suspect the intent was to ask for $35 up front and $75 when it is completed. There is enough bad grammar on the doc to convince me that English is not their first language.

$35 preorder which implies another $40 at time of fulfillment for a total of $75 for the chassis plate. If you need a nose or motor plate to go with it, that would be an additional $25 - $30. As Colt points out, there's enough bad grammar and poor wording that I wouldn't do anything without contacting them for verification of all prices and fees for what you're ordering.

I have had this, relatively inexpensive, table top drill press for probably about 20 years or so. I just realized, or have long since forgotten, that it is adjustable speed. :shock: I actually discovered this by looking at FBMP for a replacement (with multiple speeds), and stumbled across the same one I had, but showed a pic of the multi groove sheaves! :lol: I guess I will keep her, and give her a little refresh.

That looks like Jet brand, great brand, worth keeping if it's in decent shape. 8)
