I don't play vidja games anymore, but when i did, i drymountin hated the term "try-hard". Anyone that ever used that term needs their mouth drop-kicked to death. That's the stupidest term i've ever heard. Apparently tryin to win a game is a bad thing or somethin...? Don't know what made this pop into my head all the sudden after a few years, but it did, so i wanted to share my thoughts. Carry on.

The replacement price for struts/shocks on my 4Runner. Original labor quote to install such parts = $352 - after 3 more phone calls with questions about the labor charge...labor charge dropped to $253. I'm pretty sure that Enrique (service guy) now knows that I am not an idiot.

Well, all 4 shocks/struts are getting replaced. Original quote $575...got the price down to $468 installed w/current Monroe rebate. I'm getting premium grade for the same price as standards. Not bad...

Our roads, here in Tucson, are AWFUL...no money to repair them.

Give flattening first a whirl. Might be a best practice.

Or just put it in with the back of the print facing out.

I've put prints (that were shipped to me rolled normally) into my Itoya still a little curly after flattening for a while, and in about three weeks they were perfectly flat.

Deal with enough scuffs and chubby rubs and that won't be a peeve anymore.

Yes. People's obsession is kinda gettin a bit sad to me. His work is badass and all, but he's not a god lol. And not everything he does is a homerun like some make out.

International Ebay bidders that don't read your description which implicitly states your shipping method, win the auction, ask for a different shipping method and want it sent to a different location, then say you can cancel the item if you want. Oh! Thanks!
