  1. HACK ALERT HACK ALERT HACK ALERT

    (copied and pasted from Facebook)

     

    May I have your attention please:
    I recently received messages from some members of this group (and the LFC in general), who shall remain unnamed, asking why I sent them certain messages. I also received notifications that some people "accepted" my request to message them.
    After reviewing said messages, I do not recall sending a single one, and believe I have been hacked.
    With that said - if anyone received a message from me at any point asking for personal information, or if you're affiliated with (insert company, brand, etc.), it was not from me. I have never sent such a message, nor do I have reason to.

    I post here as, due to a reason or reasons I cannot explain, it seems mainly members of emergency-service related groups were sent these suspicious messages.

    I apologize for any inconvenience.

      My sincerest apologies for attempting to let people know there's hackers that seem to be targeting members of emergency service groups around. I'm not the only one.

      Are you insinuating that I kept the same password after being hacked? Thanks for your useless input

  5. So I am looking to get rid of about 30 rigs. I will be putting them up on EBAY in the next day or two.If anyone is interested in any before I put them up, let me know

  6. Difference between lot and item on BL? Help?!

    1. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      No. I'm trying to price out a rig for a friend and BL sellers' pages say they have x-amount of items in x-amount of lots, with so many matching lots. Not sure what the difference is.

  7. A Tisket a Tasket - EB's hit the trash basket

    or so it seems. This place is dead.

      Not sure where you're from but in my area we don't need Dr. confirmation to bag & tag

  8. What's the absolute most reliable way to get parts for new rigs? PAB doesn't have the necessary parts and BL is either way too expensive or inconsistent in both price and parts in stock

    1. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      Yeah that's what I've done with the wanted list. I've also got PayPal. It's just hard with all the inconsistent store stocks

  9. I need to get around to posting on here more

  10. So I did a check on the cost of an Ascendant and the 107 single axle model with a PUC runs just over the one million dollar mark. If the truck is smaller than a tandem axle, why does it cost more? I’m sure the PUC is an expensive upgrade as well but man!

    1. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      You also have to take into account that the aerial has as many as 7 feet on a tandem aerial. Also, the internal parts are probably much stronger due to the fact that the weight is supported by one axle instead of 2.

  11. Anyone know if Pierce could/would do a dual steer axle on a tiller?

    1. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      I'm less concerned with effectiveness of the tiller and more interested simply in whether someone would actually make it

  12. There needs to be a GoFundMe but for Lego.

    I simply have too much going on right now to spend more money on it and create new rigs.

    1. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      Exactly, so don't go assuming sh*t. I'll take my builds and my $24/hr elsewhere

  15. Finally got some time to pull out the bricks again! I've got 10 days off from college so hopefully I can put something together so Mike isn't hogging all the gallery glory! 😉 Lol I've also been remind that my collection is extremely unorganized, so I have a side project now as well.

  16. Was finishing up a meeting at work when a DUI MVC happened outside. Drunk guy fled, two victims got accessed by me before crews arrived. SO was all over the scene. JFRD kind of blew me off once on scene but whatevs. Busy night.

    1. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      @~JD~ does BrickOwl use invoices or can I purchase all 35 of my lots in one go?

      They are coming out with a tiller, a dual-axle tower, dual axle straight stick, and a single-axle tower.
