    Well,... actually I've seem them all. Just now
    Here is one somewhere around the Oregon Washington border.

    Here is another version of Paul.. not in Minnesota.

    Not exactly road side.. but world's largest / longest Garlic braid...

    Welcome to the obsession! If you have an Android phone try c:geo. Locus Pro is also a nice option as well that can be used for more than just caching.

    You may want to look into Ram Mounts. http://www.rammount.com/

    I use my android phone with c:geo.
    1.) GSAK can export Garmin POI file or you use can use a Nuvi macro.

    http://gsak.net/board/MacroIndex.php ( search for nuvi )
    2.) GSAK can also export Lowrance USR format. ExpertGPS also supports Lowrance.

    Page 169 of the HDS Gen3 manual mentions GPX format as well as the ability to export/import waypoints

    So I imagine it's entirely possible to accomplish what you're asking.

    I have this printer. http://www.amazon.com/Brother-HL-2270DW-Compact-Wireless-Networking/dp/B00450DVDY
    It's pretty much the staple of durability & reliability. It just works. A friend has the non-duplex version which was being strong for nearly a decade. Drivers are simple and the thing works in Linux which is a plus.
    The non-duplex version can easily be found under $100. Toner is around $45. You can cover the level sensor on the toner and get a few hundred more prints.
    The duplex version goes on sale around $120 occasionally.

    I have used the laser RITR. It really does not work in an inkjet printer. Other than that I can't speak to the inkjet version of this paper.

    I replaced the Topic feed with the Post Feed. I think that is more inline with the expectations.
    For me personally I just click the New Content button up top.

  11. Team Four Paw added a post in a topic Renting a camera lens   

    HCE did camera rentals when they first opened. They no longer do rentals unfortunately.

    I haven't rented any lenses. A quick search yeilded a few places in town. One of which is located at I-10 and Bingle. You could walk in and get a feel for them.
    Their rates seem reasonable. Seeing as their so close to the office I may go over their during lunch and check them out myself.

    It does not look like that for me in Chrome or IE. The images are not skewed in anyway.
    I would dheck your browser zoom or start disabling browser plugins.

    Picture of log was fine to me too. The preview was not readable but clicking on image gave me the full size.
