I think most of us have had enough Fes-Spam. I'm sure they have a web
site. I think they even have a forum. It's sort of like if I visit
yahoo.com, they bombard me with a big top ad. This post struck me just
If you don't already feel like something of an advertising "victim",
then I guess you can't relate. No doubt our individual tolerance levels
are different. New in the recent (local?) news is that, this year, the
"Indianapolis 500" will be the "Indianapolis 500, sponsored by
Pennzoil". Chuckle over that.
Having an off day Bill?
Anyway, the biggest complaint about Festool is the price.
So the post started with, bracket hardware looks really good, but it's
Dave, the OP, owns quite a few Festool products. ;~)
And FWIW I will continue to make comments about Festool products when I
feel like doing so. I know that others appreciate the information
whether you do or not.
Now get out in your shop/garage and build something and we need
Actually, during my extended absence, my closest friends were looking

I'd swear there was a little extra saw dust on some of them. :)
Evidently, not everyone regards his mind as his own. For 100 years, the
"Indianapolis 500" was good enough. The accumulation of
"marketing-bombardment" adds up. One can fairly ask, "Which drop of

running fairly "close to full" these days. Funny this phenomenon seems
to peak about every 4 years, in harmony with the political process... YMMV
Bill, it's your choice to be offended. Really! I can't be bothered
by advertising. There are so many other things to devote my waking
time to (and so little of it). OK, the number of ads on TV does get

Really? Why? I don't choose to be offended by professional sports.
They can do whatever they want and pay whatever they want (it's not my
money). I ignore what I don't like and if it gets so overwhelming

Why are you so preoccupied with money? I would not have let the
Superbowl happen last year. It would be nice if the NFL had ideals like
the PGA. You make a mistake on your scorecard and you lose <period>. It
would have set a nice example for the kids.
Having been to the Speedway in Speedway and through out all public
areas of the track there have been marketing partners through out the
