If only I had seen this before plunking down all that money for a PRO sled. I knew the mark-up was high but this really opens my eyes. :blink:

As a kid I had a copy of blueprints for the starship Enterprise. Who knew all it took was a trip to the hardware store.

Excuse me, which aisle for the dylithium crystals?

This reminds me of a Monty Python skit where they promised to teach you how to play the flute. "You blow in one end and move your fingers over the holes".

The way it was explained to me, you're doing nothing harder than riding a bicycle while playing flawlessly upon a violin.

Piece 'o cake.
