I had this computer table before, a gift from my mother when I am still in college, it looks sturdy but after a year or two the drawer slide came off. Imagine how much weight it can hold off? Just a keyboard and mouse maybe plus the weight of my arms – it just didn’t lasted that long so I took a photo of that and search the nearest hardware for replacement because during that time I don’t know what its called or the size that I should buy. I found several brands that are heavy duty and by just looking at the material, I found one that can be a good replacement. Call me a handy man in the making that time, ha-ha! Anyway, I took the old one down and replaced with the new slide and lucky enough it is still doing fine after around five years or more. I even turned the whole computer desk to my sister for her college use and still looking tough today. I should have realized that before that some furniture bought from malls are not that reliable because some furniture makers is cutting cost at the very least.
Call me rude, but I made the right decision. I had our vehicle checked for repairs and after a day, the shop mechanic / painter painted the tire rims saying that he thought I like it painted. I deliberately said no and for the record, I did not instruct them to paint it. Although, I admit that it looks good, I am not obliged to pay since that painting is not within my budget for maintenance and it is the shops fault for doing so without any confirmation. I guess its their loss and a gain for me. Not completely satisfied though since them painting the rims costs them labor and money however, they did it on their own judgment not from a customer. Anyway, it is still nice for a good reason.
About years ago, a friend of mine bought a pedal – the thought it was a pedal because he i not yet aware of the analog pedals before and bought a Peavey 6505 footswitch. I laughed hard hard but somehow felt bad for him because he thought he can make a good crunch with it as a standalone pedal without any compatible amplifier. But of course, since I own a peavey amp, I bought it from him because of its compatibility with mine. Oh how I love to use this footswitch in a raw direct amplifier setup. So for enthusiasts out there, specially guitar and module users, please do some research before buying an item since these gears are not that cheap from normal guys like us. So buy what you need and what can be used to fit your own sound and style.
