5.0 out of 5 stars A Product that Performs as it is Advertised, August 3, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I must say that this rug does indeed do its job. I have a FD-8 hi-hat foot pedal, a KD-7 kick-drum (old stuff, I know). However, as stated earlier, the rug does its job --- these two items that moved -- now do not move.
I bought the rug only about 2 to 3 weeks ago. So, 'we' shall see about durability. I will not be taking the drums or the rug anywhere. However, if I was playing out, this rug (and the included bag would be valued accessories to be brought to the job.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bought the 'gun metal' case for a Galaxy S5. Also puchased the Power add Tempered Glass protector.
The case has contributed to the value of the phone. Really makes the phone sturdy (despite some 'reports' of the lack sturdiness of the S5.

While some bulk is added, the phone is not unwieldy to handle or put in my pocket.
let's face it--good protection of a cell phone will add some bulk.

The cable came quickly and is doing its job. And the price was more than the right price.
I highly recommend Mediabridge cables.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Place to Start the Programming "Game", August 3, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book is a great place to start the programming game.

OK, there is no code. However, the author does clearly state that his intent is to show a 'system' that worked for him working to become a C# programmer.

It does seem that some things are 'obvious'--However, having the steps written to 'hard copy' gives the feel of one being able to sojourn from the start of programming (C# in this case) to becoming a 'journeyman' in dealing with C#...

I am at step 1. I do have a 'pet project'. I will attempt to 'execute' using the 'system' outlined in the book.

All-in-all, I do feel the author gives solid guideposts to anyone wishing to become a C# programmer. And really, the steps in the book can be applied to any language...

5.0 out of 5 stars This Purchase was a Sentimental Purchase, July 29, 2013

I have seen the videos (on LIfetime).. However, the stories are compelling enough to want to revisit from time to time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Good Memory From the 70s, July 4, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Was introduced to this song by a local band in Lancaster, PA (I believe Custer's Last Stand).
-->Thanks Tim Miller for your drumming!!

After hearing the band play this, I immediately went out and bought the 45rpm.
Of course, like many of us, the 'borrowed' 45 was 'lost' many years ago.

I nearly 'forgotten' about this gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the Melody and the 'Noise' of the Recording, July 4, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As a nascent drummer at the time of the release of the song (back in the '70s), I did get to see this song performed live by the band at that time. I was quite impressed by Floyd Sneed's drumming. I realize that the song does have more than 'quite a bit' going on. But, for me, that was the 'beauty' of the song--the 'noise'....

Of course, I 'lost' the borrowed 45rpm record long ago. I had been looking for the original recording. And it seems that thanks to the Internet/Amazon/YouTube it is indeed very possible to 'recover' those 'borrowed' 45rpm records.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works as Expected -- Since January 2013, May 14, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have had this product since January 2013. To date the item has performed very well.
I have a 17" Dell Studio-1747 -- A machine that can get quite warm.
With the three fans running at full speed, the machine has remained quite cool.
I don't play games (that may show a difference).
But, I will run virtual machines (2) and the machine still stays quite cool.

For, now the cooler does perform as advertised.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Does Work!, March 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Installed the network March 15, 2013.

I did find that I had to read the instructions.
-->Perhaps, I did not wait long enough to have the "Extended network" establish itself.

There are now 5 bars of signal in the living room and beyond (the "beyond" area was a complete dead spot.

Admittedly, I did not set up 'Advanced Security' on the "Extended network" as of yet. "Coming soon"....

To date, very happy that no other wires had to be run or any other 'complicated' thing had to be performed.
-->We have just one breaker box for the house.
-->Everything is on one floor
-->The router and the PLE400 is located about 80 feet away from the PLW400 (on the floor [hidden]).

To date, no issues... The two Mac users in the house can now connect in their formerly 'dead spot' areas and get great speed.
