    Still no word. Order status still "in production"...

    So I got the cancellation email:cry. I called to see when they would process my refund and the CSR told me my order was still active and would ship on the 12th...When you go to the link in the confirmation email does it still say "in production" or "canceled" ?

    I purchased this pack for my trip to the Bahamas!

    Purchased the black one from REI, paid $129.00 for it.
    Pack arrived and had the $64.95 price tag on it, I called and they refunded the difference

    I can say it is quite nice. It is a rear loading photo carrier with room in the front to hold a laptop/books etc. Comes with small random pockets to hold memory cards, snacks, etc. At the top of the pack there are two compartments, one that is fleece lined (good for sunglasses or ipod)
    and one that has a mesh zippered pocket and a removable pouch with a clear window.

    The photo compartment is fully padded with a flap that covers it.
    (makes for changing lenses inside the pack quite nice)
    The foam carrier has velcro dividers that can be moved around to make your own sized compartments.
    With it being rear loading it makes it impossible for sticky fingers to unzip the back of it and take out your photo equip.

    I used it as a carry on with all my equipment and wallet,passports, magazines,
    sweater, etc.

    It will hold a good amount of gear and protect it fairly well.
    It has a sternum and waist strap.
    Numerous external straps to attach tripods, monopods, ski poles, etc.

    Has a Burton logo on the back, does not scream steal me!
    Very incognito, looks just like a regular pack.

    It will not fit tall people very well, 6 footers and above.
    (waist strap would ride on your stomach)

    I give it a A+ !!!

    Deal: refurbished iMac
    In case you didn't know, Apple just lowered the price on the older iMac refurbs to a great price.

    I bought a 24" Core2 Duo 2.16ghz iMac for $1,199, free shipping. I am quite pleased with it. The best part is the screen: this is a 24" S-IPS monitor and it is amazing. Also note that in this white, 2006 model it is NOT glossy, so even better.

    I upgraded the memory to 3GB (bought it from, not Apple). It runs Lightroom, PS CS3 and Windows under VMWare Fusion without breaking a sweat (yes, all at the same time)

    DEAL!!! Canon Pro 9000
    I was having trouble with my Epson R1800, and the wife and I went into Best Buy to get an el cheapo printer so she could print her financial aid paper work. We walked around looking at HP, Canon, Epson etc... you know the $59 type of printer. Well we looked at the ink prices for these el cheapos, and we were SHOCKED! A $60 printer requires $50 ink!!! Disgusted we walk towards the front of the store and I spotted the Canon Pro 9000, sarcastically I said to Stacey, "let's just get that one!" expecting to see close to $500 for the price. Stacey responded OKAY let's! I looked at the tag and my mouth fell open! The Pro 9000 was on clearance for $198!!!!! clap.gifthumb.gifclap.gif :ivar wings.gif I could not believe it! There was a printer new in the box below the display, so I snatched it up, stared at it in disbelief, ASKED an employee if this was right.... Then just about RAN to the check out counter with the printer in my arms!!!

    I checked online, and the printer is on sale at Best for just over $400, but you have to call your local store and see if they have the same promo I got, if they do, RUN TO BEST BUY!!!!

    Okay... gotta go to bed, but I am going to have fun playing and printing tomorrow, if there is ANY INK LEFT when I get home from work! clap.gifclap.gifwings.gifwings.gif

    Deal: Seagate Barracuda 1TB = $150
    Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 1TB Hard Drive - 7200RPM, 32MB, SATA-300, OEM

    Tiger Direct - Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD

    I get Tiger Direct's email with all there deals and saw this one. That's 15 cents a gig! I remember when it was about 2 bucks a gig.

    It's OEM so probably doesn't come with any cables or anything but it has a 30 day guarantee from Tiger Direct and I believe a 5 year warranty from Seagate.

    I don't know if this is a super great deal or not as I'm not in the market for a hdd right now so I haven' been comparing but thought somebody might could use a 1 TB drive for 150 bucks.

    Cameras: Nikon D200 w/grip, Nikon D70, Samsung NV11
    Lenses: Nikkor 50mm f/1.8, Nikkor 17-80mm f/3.5-4, Nikkor 70-300mm f/3.5-5.6, Lensbaby 2.0
    Accessories: Nikon SB-800, (2X) Old Flash Units, (4X) Poverty Wizards, GF Lightsphere, (3X) Lightstand and umbrella, Sandisk Extreme III 4.0 GB, Sandisk Ultra II 2.0 GB, Transcend 1.0 GB

    1TB for $150 is a smoking deal, but I just worry about storing that much info on one drive, I probably would have bought that one if they were offering it when I purchased my 500GB. I will buy another 500 GB when this fills up and prices should drop even more so I might still come out spending the same amount.

    For those of you with a Costco Card, they usually have a 500gb Western Digital for $119 all the time and sometimes it is cheaper with a coupon.
