i am trying to "group" these as best as i can. transmission related stuff, lighting related stuff, FI light stuff and so on.. but i have ADD and i make no promises on organization.

you owe anyone who's info you use either rep points, money, or alcohol and/or titties. this is saving you a shit ton of money and taking money out of my pocket as well, since this is what i do for a living.

noobs: your reps are neutral for a while so.. i'll just take money instead..
