Spending money on something that's worth pennies, literally pennies, and not making your own unlimited supply:

http://cansofbeans.tumblr.com/post/59612351399/making-nib-pens-tutorial-review

Been doing that for a few years now, off one roll of trimmer line that cost $9, if I'd paid for the actual Wacom nibs I'd have spent a thousand bucks.

My craigslist is so bad for drives it's not funny. Everyone wants more than retail. And I can't afford the $65/$85 for a new 2TB/3TB.
I just put in an offer for $40 on someone's 2TB FAEX (they're asking $89 but it's been up a month). If I don't get it I don't know what I'll do. Finishing this encode will let me clear up 30GB of source DVDs, but adding 6GB of encodes to the pile isn't helping.

Provided I couldn't save it, I guess I'd buy a Yamaha TRBX 305, and use the rest for a halfway decent envelope filter. The 505 would cost about $500, but it actually doesn't sound as good as the 305.
