What A.net Threads Can Lead To...

Thu Apr 06, 2006 8:48 am

the "one hour past midnight random thread"!

I've just read through this thread... Macs Run Windows XP - Official (by RichardPrice Apr 5 2006 in Non Aviation)
And just had a look through the danish apple store... just to look... they had a nice offer on an iBook G4 12''... decided to get the 80 gb ultra ATA harddrive instead of the standard 40 GB one as well...

And thus, I've just completed my life's most expensive impulsive act...  Wink

Has anyone else been brought to do something impulsive/random/stupid after reading an a.net thread?

Naw, i don't care about that!!

I'm pretty tired of Windows, and my laptop is absolutely f00ked, so I did need another one... when I saw that offer on an iBook, I decided to go for Mac... I love the little, spiffy 12'' iBook... wanted one for ages... Big grin

and now the random things we say or do are just absolutely priceless!

I think my most expensive impulse buy from an a.net thread was maybe a CD or two. However, I have made purchases based on information provided from a combination of many a.net threads, namely from within the photog forum  Smile

yes, I often book some "random trip".. flying to TLV in july (after surfing on anet), decided to go spontaneously to LON in March, and once in a while, after some good discussions, bought a book in the Web on a topic I wanted to learn more (my latest: a theoretical reader on development, anthro and post-modernism Big grin )

How can you guys/girls afford to take those random flights so frequently? I mean, Europe isn't exactly the cheapest place to live and flying trans-Atlantic or Europe-Asia is no cheap affair either.

The railroad pays good money. I worked for CN Rail here in Canada over the summer and took home over $16K for 14 weeks work. The only drawback is being on the road for 6 weeks at a time, living in hotels, eating restaurant food, long hours 90-120 hrs/week and all sorts of wierd shifts in remote areas.

If I were single, I'd reconsider it again but it provided me with the funds to see the UK for 2 months and thats about it (I'm still amazing at how expensive things are over there; everything is double the price in the UK)
