The Official AHTO "Cool Stuff" Thread :) (56k warning)
1 Attachment(s)
Heya!! The swamp has a long continuing thread called "Very Good Things." basically people talk about/post pics about stuff they have, and new stuff they bought... I like checking them out, its sort alike the "LFN Shopping Channel" because you might see something you like and go and check it out, whether it be a game, t-shirt, cd anything !!!

Lemme go first :)

I have had an awesome week... I got a PSP a few days ago, which was partly due to selling my pocket pc and some bday cash :) So didnt pay any extra for it. Ive ebayed a 1 gig memstick. Im quite pleased as its a Japanese version PSP, which means its got the higher quality Sharp LCD screen and is region free for all games, meaning I can get asian/Usa imports for games that may not be released her for months, if at all :) I got a cool USB cradle/charger for it which is very handy.

To top that off, I renewed my compy lease a cpl of days ago so picked up my new compy and gave my laptop back... Because I got a deskie this time : I could maximise my $$$ so got one that ran:
*AMD Athlon 64 bit, running xp pro
*1024 DDR RAM,
*120 gig HDD,
*ALL mulitimedia drives known to man : sd, xd, memsticks, CF, firewire port etc
*Dual layered DVDRW with lightscribe
*geforce 256mb..will upgrade as reqd :p
and my fave :
*19" phillips LCD flatscreen monitor.... Ive been using 15" until now, and the difference is bewildering...

the amazing thing is Im actually paying less for this deskie than for the laptop...damn those things are expensive :(

see pic below

Im interested to see other ppls stuff though :)

Ah yes! I often check out the "very good things thread" though I never posted in it. Glad you "imported" it. hehe

By the way, you might want to add "256k warning" to the thread title, as I'm sure people will post many pictures!(and some of them quite large, too)

Anywho, I recently bought a the SyncMaster 930b monitor by Samsung.
Heres link to best buy (where I bought it)
SyncMaster 930b

I also just bought this the other day!
Wacom Intuos3 Tablet
So look out Holowan. I might just have some new robes comming soon!

TheOssusKeeper 09-23-2005 12:19 AM

I got a Dell Dimension 4600:
P4 2.8 GHz
2 HDD, one 40 gig and one 80 gig
GeForce FX 5200 128mb
Standard DVD
Standard CD burner
Dell Flat panel 19" monitor

it's nothing spectacular, but it does any thing I want it to do...

I am going to do some upgrades eventually, like putting a P4 3.6 GHz cpu in and upgrading the Vid. card and changing out the mobo for a little more flexibility and add more memory...

Astrotoy7 09-23-2005 12:21 AM

Im not a mod locally so cant do the 56k thang in the title....perhaps Darth333, chainz or sithy can indulge us ??

[edit] thanks!!


Jeff 09-23-2005 01:36 PM

Here's a Chad Johnson Jersey I got recently
Though not bought recently, here's my desk set-up, where I spend a lot of time at.

Here's all the star wars figures I found the other day from back when I was like 3rd grade or so. Well not the TPM ones, I was about 11 when that came out.
My mom hid them in the basement pretty well, took me a while to find them all. Actually, I didn't find them all. I'm still missing probably around 10-12 figures at least. But I couldn't find them anywhere. I'm considering getting back into the figure collecting.

Renegade Angel 09-23-2005 04:14 PM

I got a plasma tv and a TiVo! WOOT!

ET Warrior 09-23-2005 04:21 PM

*falls over laughing*

Astro must be rich... must be nice. Japanese PSP, sounds neat, I hope you can read it!

Dont really have anything super cool to show off. I do have a modded keyboard. I saded off all the letters and then wrote the Japanese kana in the places where they show up on the standard jis keyboard. Its also sharpie-coloured pink. :D

If I could find a place that sells japanese keyboards that are 80$ Id buy one...

90SK 09-23-2005 06:02 PM

Aww, look at his cute puppy face! That's priceless.

No richness involved Aash :) I sold my pocket pc for slightly more than I paid for the psp. With the left over $$ I put it into 1 gb memstick duo :) The pc is a lease, Ive just updated it, so it doesnt really belong to me until the end of the lease ;)

sithy, there actually is a "pet pics" thread somewhere on p2 or 3 :) But cute corgi. Queen Lizzy is also a huge corgi fan :)

O_O Who told?

My Star Wars micro-machine collection:

My Lego collection (there are a few model tanks in the picture, those are actually my father's):

My old teddy bear, that survived 18 years in my possession:

My favorite Transformer toy:

Bob Lion54 09-24-2005 10:19 PM

Nice collection. I had the micromachines when I was younger.

The wing fell off the Tie Fighter, though..... I tried super glue, no joy. I tried Epoxy, it melted!

Epoxy+plastic= bad!

REDJOHNNYMIKE 09-25-2005 12:40 AM

As an ex-conosiuer, I have to ask you how many of those lego sets you've actually deconstructed and played with, many appear to be original construction, either that or mine have been in storage to long:D

My personal favez were the old west.

Astrotoy7 09-25-2005 02:20 AM

Being a fan of the novels featuring Drizzt Do'Urden(see av and siggy!!) I was quite excited to learn that they are *finally* making a graphic novel of the *awesome* Dark Elf Trilogy, where we read about Drizzts birth, training and exile, and those evil drow elves :)

I have pre-ordered a signed copy from the authors website, check it out if interested(scroll down page a little)

Those are mostly the original set. I've deconstructed them long ago but to make them pretty and nice on a shelf, I've reconstructed all of them.
Only the bottom shelf contains original creations which is a few houses and a ship.

Jeff 09-25-2005 04:53 PM

I got the 500th figure today at K-Mart. I got lucky, it was the last one. I'm basically just starting to get back into figure collecting, so I'm wondering whether I should open this or not... Anyways, here's a pic of it. I know the glare makes it look bad, but it really looks sweet ;)

Jeff 10-21-2005 10:34 PM

Nobody's posted their new stuff for a while!

Just watched it. Great movie :)

Bob Lion54 01-31-2006 03:43 PM

My latest purchase! So far I've watched all of season 1 and I'm up to episode 12 in season 2. I haven't been able to watch it sinse they played it on TNT. Now I watch it when ever I want!


Darth InSidious 01-31-2006 06:09 PM

My latest purchase was "Doctor Who: City of Death" on DVD. I don't have a picture, but it was ab-so-lutely worth it! Douglas Adams at his best :D

Commander Obi-Wan 01-31-2006 06:57 PM

Great Movies. Watched them many times.

ChAiNz.2da 02-03-2006 05:31 AM
