    Okay, we did music awhile back and I ended up w/ some nice albums from the effort. Soo ... top 5 movies (this has been brought on by the post-alleycat movie talk + drinking session awhile back).

    I'll stick to documentaries, since that's what I watch the most of:

    1. A Certain Kind of Death - http://imdb.com/title/tt0342180/
    2. Baraka - http://imdb.com/title/tt0103767/
    3. The Fog of War - http://imdb.com/title/tt0317910/
    4. Murderball - http://imdb.com/title/tt0436613/
    5. One Day in September - http://imdb.com/title/tt0230591/

    Point: PAC bags are more durable due to the fact that the tarp liner is sandwiched between a layer of Cordura and nylon.

    Counterpoint: The layer of tarp liner is actually thinner than what's used in other bags due to weight concerns ... and thus cracks, deteriorates, etc. just as quickly but isn't visible.

    Discuss.

    3 layers are still better than 2? Still my favorite but many others are very close.

    On an unrelated topic...I need some help from the computer savvy folks here.
    Firstly I have an old computer at home that has a bunch of music (4 gigs) that I want to transfer on to my machine at work. Easy? Hard? Just put the drive in? Help?
    Secondly a friend of mine gave me an old Mac laptop..Powerbook G3. I know very little of Mac...even less than P.C. which is very little. If it is not hopelessly outdated software wise I would like to start messing with it. Any Mac guys give me some insight?

    s'easy. rip the hard drive out, set the jumpers onto slave, pop it into the new comp using the same ATA cable as the existing primary hard drive is...and start it up!

    bang. 2 hard drives. trasnfer, or use the other one for storage.

    The powerbook G3 will probably fine if you want to use it for MP3s, word processing and internet I'll check up to what version of operating system it can run. As for transfering music Boro has it exactly right, it should be super easy.

    yea. when I got my bag from Reba, she told me an extra layer of Cordura would be way too heavy cause the tarp liner she uses is much thicker than Pac's. but then again... you already knew that...


    and cavernmech, you can always try to transfer stuff through your ipod or external DVD burner and throw all your music onto a DVD.
    or just do the harddrive swapping thing.
    physics hertz.

    Follow up on the powerbook, check out this website for a good overview of the powerbook and you can officially run up 10.2 of OS x i think I have those cds kicking around somewhere, if I do I'll try to bring them by before the end of the week.

    Your counterpoint is a lil off. The 3-layer liner actually doesn't deteriorate as quickly as an exposed liner. The protective layering better supports the scrim of the liner and helps prevent creasing which is how the cracks begin.

    I bought a 15 tooth cog from Cavern bike yesterday ( thanks for putting it on the rim Sir Kieth) Big change over the 16 tooth cog plus a friend from work is giving me his Dad''s old Italian racing bike with alot of rust he said but maybe it'll be restorable I think he said it was a Melain ( bad spelling)

    He was happier before it happened, but he'll be alright, taking a month off or so.

    I like the exposed tarp on the inside of my bags. It looks cool and provides a nice contrast, but its also super easy to wipe clean and nothing ever gets caught on it. Plus Sam told me that UTW does cheap tarp replacements down the line if they wear out. So try getting tahini sauce off the inside of your cordura with a napkin! Go Tarp!

    keith, you must have a usb connection on your pc. i can come by tomorrow morning with my external hard drive and we can transfer your nudie pics/illegally downloaded mp3s and whatnot to your mac. i'm mac/linux at work so maybe we can take a looksie at the laptop as well.

    Yeah, that's the one thing I really like about my timbuk2 bag. The (optional) waterproof liner feels super durable and it's really easy to clean up.

    ps. shiznaz: I still have your sunglasses. let me know if you want me to just drop them in your mailbox or something.
