    Help no cutter!

    Ohhhhh... That's just... That's just wrong. *grin* BWS

    Punch or Cut

    I v-cut everything. Every once in a great while, a cigar will be tight, and it will get a 2nd v-cut, which produces an x-cut. Works pretty well. Am coming to the anecdotal conclusion that v-cutting rather than guillotining cigars extends one's cigar enjoyment by some as-yet-unknown number of...

    Some Serious Friction on the Slippery Slope

    Well, not that this will help your productivity, but for about $100/year, you could see if IT will block an ssh connection. In semi-english, offers secure tunneling subscriptions. This enables you to surf sites using their proxy servers - since the traffic is encrypted from end...

    In all my years of smoking...

    I must be doing something wrong :). Easily 90% of my cigars make it down to 0.5" +/- 0.25" with the aid of a modified alligator clip. Will start paying attention. I use the clip to avoid charred fingers. Often the best part of a cigar for me starts with 2" or 1" to go. If it's good from...

    Just don't get it.

    It could come with six hookers with no gag reflexes and it would still not get $13K out of me. Well, not all at once, anyway. Um... never mind. All I really wanted to say was the line ending in "... because I am a douche bag" was laugh out loud funny - much to the momentary bewilderment of my...

    Whats the website?

    Might there be a MacOS variant that anyone could recommend (other than Excel, which is what I'm using presently)? BWS

    patio heaters

    After getting tired of frequenting places with either patio heaters with no tanks or nothing at all, I finally took the plunge and invested in a $25 propane bottle-top heater - all of 1000 BTU and sufficient for one person if it doesn't drop below 50F much and if there's not a lot of wind - the...

    What a woman!!

    Now that's domestic harmony. I should be so fortunate as to find a woman that wouldn't freak out at the mere sight of a humidor, let alone have a true appreciation for the enjoyment that an occasional fine cigar can provide. Very nicely done, indeed. BWS

    Favorite Rocky

    Favorite RPs would have to be: 1) Vintage 1990 - Churchill - these after six months in the humidor have been verrrrry tasty with notably oily wrappers. 2) Indian Tabac Super Fuerte Maduro PB - these straight out of the box/bag have been consistently good also with notably oily wrappers...

    I think I am going to become a member what do you guys think????

    If I were in NYC and could rationalize $700-$1000/month for a membership, food, beverage, tips, and obligatory cigars, I'd consider it in the name of... business development - yeah, that's it. My $0.02 is to go for it - amortize the $5K over 36 months and give it a thorough 3-year trial run...

    I think I am going to become a member what do you guys think????

    That's $450/month *plus* food, beverage, and cigars, right? Sheesh - much more than that and they'll start keeping the riffraff out if they're not careful :). BWS

    I think I am going to become a member what do you guys think????

    666 5th Avenue? *LOL* LOVE IT! So I guess that means not a whole lot of fundies (fundamentalists) are members, eh? That aside, I wonder if 666 is as unlucky as 999 is lucky in certain cultures... I wonder what the west coast equivalent is. Then again, I suppose if I have to ask, I'm...

    Building a new humidor (pictures included)

    Must be nice to have that kind of skill. Thanks for the pix - keep 'em coming. BWS

    Line up for tonights game

    Looking forward to the Patriots making (more) history. Looks like you'll celebrate in style. The game tonight for me will be #18 Arizona at #2 Memphis. Memphis hasn't lost at home in something like 47 games and is a 9-point favorite (down from 12). Still, I like Arizona's chances...

    just one brand...

    Tough call... if c, then - Ramon Allones if nc, then - Rocky Patel, with 3 or 4 close seconds behind that if I had to stock the next 1000 cigars, 70% would come from the above, 20% from the field, and 10% for long-term storage. BWS
