You buying from Hamman's ?

If you are, I hope it's not from a smous called Derek.

If it is you'll have to phone him tommorow to find out its Friday, then on Friday again to hear it's monday, then on Monday you'll phone again and hear that it's Wednesday, then again to ...


Other than that I got good service from them.


Awesome about the bike !

You are gonna take a camera with when you pick it up so that someone can capture your toothy grin while accepting the keys ?

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

Do you perhaps have too much time on your hands?  :lol:
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

Coool !

What do you do ?

I sold a SansAmp GT2 to David (Works at Marshall Music/ Music Connection) a couple of years ago. I think he was involved with 6of9 at that stage...

Yip - just hobby at the moment.
Play in our church band - lead and rhythm and the 'stand-in drummer' in case the regular drummer isn't available.

Very cool !


Sorry 'bout the hijack.
