I'm glad they don't make cab-overs anymore. The new 4200-9000i series trucks, 2005-up with the Diamond Logics systems are fun to work with. I had an 05 7500i with the new DT500 in the shop, 6 miles on it!!!! and a bad IDM (Injector drive module). I love my plug-n-play laptop. The engine room had to send me a new blank IDM. I downloaded the new software, and she fired right up....Saved the dealership ALOT of hassle.

I know what ya mean Duffer. Last summer I had the liberty of rebuilding a 1979 International winch truck that had a 9 liter V8 in it, and I also had to rebuild the hydravac brake system on it. That thing was so old most of the parts were obsolete, and I had to make several trips to San Antonio to get the parts I needed. Took me almost a month to finish it up.

B-3s are incredible. One of the best keyboard sounds for a rock n' roll context. Do you use a complete setup with a rotary speaker?



And for myself:

Playing guitar
Listening to music
Video games
Watching movies with my wife

Of the couple people that mentioned paintball here, how "in to it" are you? Recball, woodsball, tournaments? What (is any) markers do you have?

Nice, I used to play speedball/tournies too. Never got a chance to play at skyball, but I played in the MR Series out west here for a couple years. Had many guns, Impulse Visions, cockers, and the like.

I grew out of it too, and it'* just too expensive for someone in University.
