    ~$240, from 1st-Line Equipment. Could have gone conical burr or flat burr, but at this price point, the conical is supposed to be more consistent and forgiving. Much below this price point, and shot pull times are pretty much a matter of luck. The next step up is a big one, with the Mazzers starting at around $600 or so.

    Some almost-impossible-to-find NOS ThinkPad parts for a custom build that I'm working on...priceless.

    Ordered heating oil, 225 gallons at $2.35/gallon...

    Filled up the tank on my Explorer. 17 or so gallons at $2.29/gallon...

    A carton of Marlboro Black 100's...$57.something...

    Tolls to Brooklyn where I'll be for the next few days...$10 or so...

    Payday better come soon...:rolleyes:

    Wow, that's pretty expensive (for the cigs)!. Highest I've seen here is around $30-something for a carton, with average being $20-something and even $10-something (though I guess those are crap?). Though we also don't have very high tobacco taxes here...

    Wow, I can't even get them for much if any less than $50 a carton on the reservation, and its tax free there. They used to be $40 a carton but the store owners decided to match all of the other local prices.

    Well, in most of the "civilized" societies alcohol, cigarettes and petrol/gasoline are government's favourite cash cows...
