4.0 out of 5 stars Great guide for the uninitiated, November 14, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My wife needed a book to use as a teaching tool for high school students. This book offers an easy to read, step by step guide for using GIMP. I've been using GIMP for years and am impressed by the book's clarity and ease of use. Highly recommended for beginners.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Chair, November 14, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We bought this chair to replace an decrepit task char that was falling apart. It's great. If you've never used an exercise ball as a chair before, I recommend trying that before purchasing. Otherwise, the chair is great. Well built, rolls smoothly, highly adjustable. Had an issue where the base was defective, but the company shipped out a replacement right away.

4.0 out of 5 stars They're sticks, they glow. Awesome., November 14, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These worked as expected. Bought them for a Halloween party to use in pumpkins. I didn't want to use candles in 20 kids' pumpkins, so I thought that they might be a good option. They were bright for glowsticks, but not really bright enough to use one stick in a pumpkin. If you added a couple, it worked better. Anyway, kids had fun and they were long lasting--I had one glowing for over 24 hours (albeit dimly by that time).

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't set and forget this timer, it might fail!, November 14, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Incredibly disappointed in the longevity of this timer. Bought it at the beginning of the season to replace an old timer which had started leaking. Turned it on as we were headed out of town for a one-night trip, came back the next day to find my garden flooded and swampy. Just stopped working. For something that should be set it and forget it--it's a problem when it doesn't work!

4.0 out of 5 stars Where there's smoke..., June 11, 2009
I bought these smoke detectors because they have the lithium batteries included. I like the idea of not having to change out the batteries for long periods of time. I would have gone with the type you wire into your home electricity, but the locations I needed to place the detectors were not conducive to hard-wiring. They seem to work ok. Haven't had to really use them yet...knock on wood.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comfy Coccyx Cushion, June 11, 2009
This cushion is perfect for a big guy like myself. I threw my back out and this cushion made sitting in my cube on my ancient office chair bearable. I flipped it over so the blue side is up...Doesn't call as much attention to itself that way.

Agent18 Diamond Kit Silicone Case for Zune 4/8/16 GB (Black)

5.0 out of 5 stars Versatile case, June 11, 2009
This is a great zune case. I like that it is really 2 cases in 1. It has a silicone case that holds the zune and can be carried/pocketed. That silicone case also slides securely into the arm band making it a good way to carry your zune at the gym. The only drawback I have is that since the case covers the thumb pad, it reduces the sensitivity of it which can make scrolling difficult.

= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I bought this for my wife because she loves word search puzzles. She loves it and takes it whenever we go on a trip. The biggest drawback is the sound fx, but otherwise it's great. The multiple games it comes with are fun too. She also thinks it's helped her improve her scrabble score.
