2.0 out of 5 stars Sophomore Slump?, 2 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've read about a third of the Discworld books so I'm going back and filling in with the one's I've missed. The first was Equal Rites. Unfortunately, it was the first Terry Pratchett book I was genuinely disappointed with. Plot threads that fizzled out and went nowhere. Half-formed characters. Jumping all over with little sense of place. It was like someone tried to cram a 600 page novel into 300. I titled this "Sophomore Slump" because The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic are really a single story. Did Sir Terry have some trouble figuring out where to go after such a strong start? That's the only explanation I can think of.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hit or Miss Quality, 9 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Most gaming keyboards are pretty ugly. Razer stuff looks nice. They are nice to use, when they work. Take this keyboard for example. It's nice to type on and use for games. The keys feel nice. But the media keys are just flat out broken. They will cause your media player to open over and over. This was supposedly a problem that only happened on an early production run, don't believe it. On the non-mirror version, the coating on the keys rubs off after only a few months of heavy use. Don't buy this keyboard, you will regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's ok, 15 Dec 2011
It looks nice and it works really really well. But I have a few quibbles. I wish the handle was longer. I also don't like the way I have to put the blades in. You unscrew the bottom and the top comes off and it has like this long bolt that passes through the whole handle. It's a bit clunky. I'll probably be on the lookout for something else though. By the way, screw disposables. Seriously, don't waste your money and your face. Despite my complaints, this is waaaay better than ANY disposable face destroyer. This has given me the best shave I've ever had. Better than electric and better than any ridiculous four blade disposable. If you're thinking about trying wet shaving, buy this. You could do worse, much worse.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stupid Fun, 15 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As Mr. Posehn says at the beginning of the album, "take off your thinking caps." This is dumb stoner humour at it's best. If you're looking for clever wordplay and wit, you're looking in the wrong place. But if you appreciate stuff like Cheech & Chong then this is for you.

It's does exactly what is says on the tin! That's far more than many products. I have a limited number of fan connectors on my motherboard so this was perfect for my needs. If you need more power for more fans, buy it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Particularly Useful, 15 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The writing is mildly amusing. However, it's more like a pamphlet than a book and it's certainly not very helpful for moustache enthusiasts. It's not even a good starting point. I'd look elsewhere.

1.0 out of 5 stars Better than the Regular, 15 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is better than the regular Clubman stuff but it's still not that great. I recommend Bounder Moustache Wax from Wax Industries (Google is your friend) over this crud.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a Beast!, 15 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wow, where to start? This case rocks! Easy to work in, looks cool and keeps your hardware cool. If you're wondering if it looks as good in person let me reassure you, it looks even better. But it's big and fairly heavy. If you want something small, out of the way and doesn't draw attention to itself, then this is not the case you want! This is a serious gamer or even workstation case. Plenty of room and good cable management. I would have preferred tool-less card and HDD bays but that's a minor quibble. There are a number of cases in this category and price range, and most of them are excellent. It mainly comes down to the details and style you want. For me, this is the best case I've ever owned.

Don't waste you money or eyes on crappy, dim CFL bulbs. Until LEDs come down in price, your best bet is halogens.

4.0 out of 5 stars Record is (was) Great but Now Redundant, 15 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Buying this is pretty pointless if you already own Reason 5 as you can upgrade to Reason 6 which has all of Record's functionality and more. I won't give it a low score but don't waste your money here.
