I run a weekly contest on another board and the winner will pick a theme for the challenge that week. At the end of that week the last weeks winner gets to pick a new winner. Due to not everyone participating every week we get a well rounded group of people that come up with decent challenges...
Got tired of all the crap with windows also and bought a macbook 5 years ago. Still works like the day I bought it. Got a 27" iMac in March of this year. I now enjoy being able to get things done instead of upgrading something or figuring out why something isn't working right.
There was a smaller enlarger on Craigslist here for the last year for $17. I don't know if it finally sold after that long or they gave up trying to sell it.
I agree. I have one just like it. It's missing quite a few parts.
