    The price will be whatever he thinks he can charge. Given the fact that people continue to pay dearly for his stuff, it's not hard to imagine what side of the scale they will start at. Personally I just don't care to listen to the man any more. He changes his tune faster than a politician who just got caught rogering the intern on camera.

    If and that's a BIG if he makes something that is worth the money and in my price range that's actually unique and all I'll consider it. Till then I'm tuning out.

    Yeah, remember when having a beard meant you were a big, tough, burly man? Now it seems to say Does this make me look less metrosexual?

    I've had a beard for 40+ years. I've shaved twice... 40 years ago for my wedding and 30 years ago for a part time job. Both times I realized in days, it was a mistake! I have a harder time figuring out, everyone with the perpetual 3 days growth and looking like they need a shave... either grow it or shave it!

    I was referring to the 20 something kids who wear Ambercrombie clothes, including the skinny jeans of course, deck shoes, and appear otherwise completely hairless sporting a fresh manicure. Ya gotta remember I live near LA so it is surely the new hip thing.

    It is THE look for our New Media department at work.

    There have been a few valid points made on the thread ... A cut could have been made about the ~125 page mark as one marker where something along the subject topic was addressed ...but then valid news was followed up by hare news ... Don't think it really matters as no lose of life occurred to my knowledge..

    You can thank Ted Turner for the illusion of 24\7 news ...

    I'll add one more thing on threads ...I'm sure Coffee, if no one else, is aware of some of the numbers about his site, such as thread count... This thread might have as many as ~20 topics in it other than the subject line. If those topics were brought to light in the proper place, maybe they in turn might generate new topics and new threads ... This all helps drive the web site in a positive manner and promotes it in a much better light ... ESP the business side. Takes self-discipline or jail-time for many to follow rules \ laws. Had enough of the latter so the former is easy for me follow, usually. And of course I had a job or 2 where email was big and it was essential to understand the subject matter of the email and response accordingly and only accordingly....
