Sometimes I've come across some epic comments from people on the forums which, if I've had the space, I've put in my signature for a while.  Regrettably, I've run out of room to put a couple of other links I want in there, so I'm going to put them in a thread instead.  If you've found any other excellent ones yourself, please do post them.

I don't like the sound signatures of many headphones, mostly because they add extra bass flavoring. Still, I know why they do that (consumers prefer it) and it doesn't bother me. But the K-701 has a really noticeable flaw in the mids. AKG knows this, too, which is why they lowered the price. If it was actually any good, they'd be able to get the MSRP of $500 or so, especially in light of the outbreak of kilobuck headphones. Further, AKG hasn't addressed the problem. Instead of updating the drivers, they put out a fluorescent green version. How cute.

In response to a 300W soldering iron...
 
Quote from nikongod:
With this post you have stirred a great desire in me. As I gaze longingly on such a fine tool I can but imagine the instantanous melting of solder in the joining of even large gauge wires and vaporization of small parts. It makes my nipples stiffen, and my desk may soon tip as a result of my growing desire but I can not overt my gaze from this tool. OOOOOOOH. Perhaps the worst part of finding this thing I so badly want is also finding it so readily available and willing to be touched and held firmly in my hand. Perhaps some day it will be mine, until then I will have to make do with simply looking shyly from afar and knowing that I have an inadequate regulated Weller 40W at home. Despite the fact that my own tool is more than adequate for the joining of smaller parts it no longer seems like enough. What should I do if I want to solder a 16ga wire to a tube socket? Would my dinky little weller be able to handle it? Would it just cough and sputter feebly on the floor while a man with a real tool could finish the job? I banish these thoughts! How I curse you sanity and practicality! were you not to have stepped in and remind me I dont need something so outstandingly awesome I would own such a tool now. Some day one of you sanity or practicality will leave me and I will take this tool into my home, and we will solder together to consummate our union.
