    Mail man was just here, dropped off three of four packages I've been waiting for.

    The first was a cheap USB cord with males on both ends, it's strange how hard these are to find in local stores. Wal-Mart used to carry them but now only the extension with male and female lol? Best buy nothing under $30 so I ordered one on eBay for $2.49 free shipping.

    The second a record weight, I know these are a controversial subject but that's not the point of this thread. I love the great packaging, this is the second one of these I have now. Gifted another weight I had to Cooper, a young friend I helped get started in vinyl.

    Also ordered on eBay

    The third item is the most wanted of the four, my AR58s replacement tweeters, only one original was blown but I ordered two replacements to keep them identical.

    From Chris1 on eBay

    I just got this:

    It's the cheapest transistor radio kit I could find on eBay. Less than £4.

    I have an unreasonable fondness for assembling small rubbishy electronic kits.

    Having got a tracking server running for my DofE group, using existing tracker devices (we could no longer afford the service charge), I bought a cheap (£15.69) TK102 tracker. Apart from a curiously poor case (fixed with a few bits of scrap 2mm plasticard from my modelling days of my youth), it works very well. And arrived next day!

    I received two genuine OEM Empire stylus this week.

    Freaks me out that I would ever find original stylus for these great cartridges from the 70’s. They are not worth having without OEM styli.

    The internet has some great benefits. Connecting people, products, information....

    I got a couple of Telefunken E88CC's the other day for my preamp!
    Talk about that Christmas feeling.....what a difference one made. I've been grinning all week and have been listening to music late into the night.
