@Rag, yes Cap had its cartoony, comic book camp moments but they were well placed within the movie and not just blatantly out there for attention. I really liked how they ended Cap.

Yes that has to be the most hideous looking minivan I've seen to date and that's bad considering some of the early to mid 90s minis were awful.

Nissan's current in-production monstrosity is pretty horrific, too. Yarr! In fact, their fullsize commercial van (NV) is even worse.

I still think that the generation of Chrysler vans (specifically Dodge's) previous to the ones made now was the best looking mini ever.

Yep I really liked the looks of my 2000 and 2001. I had a Caravan and a Grand Caravan. The Caravan was nice, I loved the way it drove in the snow and was perfect size for my family. The GRand was a little bigger still handled great but I could also haul full sheets of drywall and plywood.

We went and saw Tintin a couple weeks ago and it was a great flick. Last week, we saw War Horse. It is a really good movie, predictable, but a really good movie. I am still very busy at work and too busy to do much anything lately. I had a couple minutes, so I thought I would come in and say hi.

I definitely want to see Tin Tin, not too much into War Horse. I'll be going to see Sherlock Holmes next week.

WH takes place in during WWI England. The cinematography is excellent. There was one scene where Joey "the horse" ran into some barbed wire and I cringed. Other than that, sit back and enjoy the tale and excellent acting.

Just watched 'Real Steel', not too bad. Some very cool robot fights.
But its one of those movies that leaves a few things unresolved.

They want to leave room for a sequel. Here's the early preview I saw during the end credits of a movie I watched a while ago…

Don't overload though Spoon, else regular trips to the loo are in order!.



RS545 Cans, the last digit of "5" indicates it's a 5-pole motor right?.

What do you think this is, an RC site?

Yeah, I believe that the last "5" there refers to it being a 5-pole, 'cause that is a 5-pole motor.

-25°F at the house yesterday morning. High was -12°F. Not sure what today is.

You know of any other motors that are 5 pole by any chance? (540 size). I'm clueless on them tbh.
