    That's very nice, health to wear. I have a black leather one, not a custom though, just store bought. I really like it, but I don't think I would suit brown much.

    Cue the lens envy! Actually screw that, you have a D5000... Cue the camera envy :D Nice purchase :thumb:

    Mmmm, I love that "this is the fastest computer I've ever owned/used" feeling :D The last time I was able to say that was earlier this year, I'm gonna have to change that by the end of Janurary. I'm geting slightly addicted to upgrades :p

    Looks interesting. I've wanted to try one since I first saw them but I am a firmly grounded Logitech man. Between my G5(s) and G500 my gaming mouse needs are well and truly taken care for, otherwise I'd buy one and give it a go for a while.

    That's my free time for the next few years filled.

    I'm still trying to find a good Teach Yourself Finnish book.

    No niin, tervetuloa helvettin!

    I'm half finnish and been speaking it since I was child. Even did a year in school and a year in the army over there, grammar is still a pain in the a*** D

    Best of luck!

    I listen to a lot of Finnish music and it would be nice to be able to understand some of the lyrics (eventually) without needing to resort to hunting through the internet for good translations. I get the feeling it could take me quite some time but I won't give up :worried:.

    I also like the sound of the lanuage itself for some reason. No idea why though.

    EDIT: I also like the challenge.

    EDIT 2: Thanks to those wishing me luck. I think I will need it.

    Th bit of finnish I know is pretty muhc limited to song lyrics and music:
    I know:
    Teräsbetoni (spelling might be all f***ed) means something to the tune of "Steel concrete"
    and that "Taivas lyö Tulta" (again... spelling?) is something like "The sky strikes fire"

    The problem with Finnish is that it's pretty much compleely unlike anything european - I speak fluent english, German, understand dutch moderately well, speak a bit of Spanish, portugues and french.
    When I see it in writing, I can SORTOF make out bits of swedish and norwegian... but finnish is just weird to me...

    Good luck.

    :D How is it after extended use if you don't mind me asking? Like say...is it easy to clean or 'de-clutter'. I'm planning to have my 3 19" monitors on here plus a Logitech G25 wheel clamped on.

    I went out for a couple of beers and I came back with a bottle of Distillers Edition Talisker.

    Distilled in 98, bottled in 09.

    Finnish music is quite likely the best thing ever made in Finnish. Well, it is for sure if you ask me. And feel free to just drop me a PM if you can't understand something :)

    Grats for getting it 100% right ;)

    But yeah enough with the OT now, have a great.. night, evening, morning, what ever the heck it is right now.
