Ok, so I'm reorganizing my collection for like the 10th time. And I have a handful of top loader binder sheets empty and laying out on my dining room table. So today when I wake up, I find that my wife has them filled with clipped coupons?!?!?! :shock: I think she's been watching that extreme coupon show a little too much! Squelchy and his wife ---> :fight:

Woman be taking your top loaders?!

Next thing you know she'll be using the storage bins for your SWM, for her scrap booking supplies!

Might be time to: :maul:

But, toploaders aren't expensive, I think I got a pack of 100 for about 20-25 bucks on ebay.

I think my LGS has 100-packs for $20.
I've easily gone through a couple of them between SWM and all my son's now-languishing CCGs.

:shock: Scrap booking supplies!!! :vader2: Nnnnooooooooo :!: Ggrrrr :maul:

Ya, my collection has gotten pretty big recently. Somewhere over the 2000 mark, might even be around 2500. I'm going to have to re-do everything. So I think I'm going to keep my R and VR in card storage boxes, and C and UC in the top loader sheets. Ya, they aren't too bad in my area. Walmart charges way too much for them here! I don't know who they think they are! My Microeconomics teacher calls Walmart "The Evil Empire." :lol:

Ya, that's most likely what I'll do here. My son has a decent sized Pokemon collection. Plus he needs some of the sheets for his Yu-Gi-Oh cards. However SW Minis has priority here. :ugeek:

Just sell some of his cards to buy more minis. As long as he's wired into Xbox live, he wont notice. ;)

BTW, did he even go to Egypt Wars 2 a couple weeks ago? I was expecting to see him around with the MTG crowd, but didnt see him anywhere. Didnt spend alot of time over on that side of the building, but still.

Nope. I tried to get him to come play the Hoth thing with me.
And he's like a set or two behind on MTG now.
Maybe if I dial his bandwidth back far enough on the router, he'll do something else out of frustration. :P

Most routers should have settings for QoS (Quality of Service) for specific applications, as well as per machine by hardware (MAC) address, or the ethernet port it is connected to.

I haven't actually changed his bandwidth settings from the defaults, but I have set the parental PCs at the highest priority, so we can actually surf and get e-mail at a reasonable speed while he is playing. :mrgreen:

The best part is being able to set the times of day during which he can even connect. It's great for setting deadlines later than I care to stay up on weekends. :fight2:
It's kind of a pain with the Linksys I have though. The manual should cover that stuff if your router can do it.

Awesome, thanks swinefeld. I'll look into that. Our games on X-Box live lag big time when someone else is online surfing. Thanks again dude. :D

I had no idea you were so techno-savvy, Dave. :P

Squelch, maybe your wife will save enough on groceries to cover the cost of more top loaders, and eventually, more minis. ;)

No, I'm not really. I don't even own a digital camera, I can't figure out newer cell phones, and most of my computer stuff is 6-10 years old.
However, I do like to tinker with things, in general. :P

Woo Hoo! Now that's what I'm talking about! :lol: I can relate to the new cell phone thing Dave. :oops: I picked up my brothers Droid the other day, and was completely and hopelessly lost in seconds. :lol:

Well, that is one use for them I guess. I still use mine for, um, well, um, baseball cards and um, star wars minis character cards. So I guess one of us is a bit abnormal, and I think it's not me.

Sadly we watch that show too and my wife raided my toploader sheets also, since she is in a major organization mode all I see on the table is my box of toploaders and halful sheets of coupons.
