When the big picture is to big, look for a point you can start at and build from there.

LOL!  While it does seem to be a mandatory requirement for owning an H-D, I didn't get a pickup truck. :D  I only got a small '09 Kia because it was in great shape, the price was right, and the gas mileage suits my needs for my commute to and from work each day.  Perhaps I will need to get a hitch and a small trailer for it so I can tow the Harley when it breaks down. :P

Enjoy that stage while you can.  There will come a time when he won't want to cuddle any longer and you will miss it terribly.

y'know, that's one of the things that's really upsetting me about whats going on with our expected little one.

I'm likely to not have a cuddly little baby to enjoy this time, the prognosis is getting really bad now and its finally sinking in for toni.

the baby is now exhibiting clover leaf skull syndrome, along with all the other issues, like the chest barely being big enough for the heart, let alone the lungs and all the bits that are currently not in there.


We had a tour of the special treatment ward last Thursday,  they were polite enough not to say its likely we wouldn't be there for long, and not in a good way either, but that was the underlying tone of things. The doctor also point blank said "we can still stop the heart if you change your minds" he's pretty adamant that would be for the best, I don't think he realises it would be the worst thing for us with regards to actually dealing with the inevitable tradgedy we are going to experience.

I got a 6xSRK that I ordered from e-bay today. Meh.. I wish I had know that Fast Tech was going to have one with XM-L2's. I got mine for $34 so the price was right and they shipped it very fast. Those e-packages show up fast. It's wired parallel and the driver isn't too bad. It's not a triple teroid driver. It's one teroid and a  large capacitor. Different than I have seen before. I'm waiting on XP-G2's that are going to go into it. I'll also be adding some heat sinking.

All in all it's an ok light the hot spot is huge but not overly floody really and there is a pretty bad ring in the middle of the beam profile. If not for the ring I would have really liked it, but that is the one thing that puts me off of lights more than anything. I'm almost tempted to put an MT-G2 in it instead. I have a reflector that fits it so if the XP-G2's don't give me a better beam profile then that is what I'll do.
