Green Bicycle

Name: Bicycle 808 Green

Date: 5.30.2009

Cost: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○

So, buying direct from Magicbox.uk , located on the internet, the pricing per decks is quite cheap. Unfortunately, shipping to the US kills it. As in shipping matches the price of a deck. I picked up a brick of these for about 45$ = 3-4 $ a deck. But for super bikes, that’s a good price.

Available through magicbox.uk, or ebay retailers, depending on where you want to pay. Personally I’d support magicbox, so they can continue to provide them.

Top quality bicycle brand. Only negative comment was the first deck I opened had a click bend in it. Probably from the 1 month ship time it took from the UK to California. How depressing. Though the second one I opened a week after it settled was near perfect. So near perfect. If bicycle brand is your tool of choice, you should consider using this deck. Deck box doesn’t mention a finish, but it’s a safe bet its air-cushioned bicycle.

Why did I even pick this move. I dunno. Probably the thing I was working on at the moment. As you can see either the deck isn’t perfect. Or I’m not perfect. Shrugs. Still,,,green fans are always neat.

If these were readily available in retail stores, that would be a good idea. Please don’t confuse these with the Bicycle Eco that’s currently in retail stores and such.  But. They’re only available from magicbox. Which also carries other neatly colored bicycle decks. Yay ;–; If you’re starting out in cardwork, there might not be much here to distinguish from a regular bicycle deck. The faces are all the same for that matter. Except the texas hold’em rules are printed in black and green. Smart. Save on printing. If you’ve been at it for awhile, you can be assured this deck will have a longer life in use. In pricing, you should pick these up in sets of more than 1, or the price will kill you. Also makes a good holiday or St. Patricks day themed gift or part magical assistance.

Macro Enabled.

Welcome back. Its Friday the ….29th. Yea. Because remembering dates and what day it is isn’t really important to me anymore. Going out of town again for the evening, so … a different post of sorts. Yesterday, I ‘mentioned’ finding a camera with macro. and I did. What? How do you just ‘acquire’ a camera with macro in under a day?!?! Anyone want to call shenanigans? No, I is just resourcefuls. haha…yeaa….I now have macro under my list of tools for blogging.

Well. There it is. The camera that didn’t have macro. Its a good 18 months old. With scratches and scars all over the back. photo count is sitting in the 5000s. (lol my youtube video watch count is sitting in the 10000s) Still my camera of choice for casual photo taking due to quick boot up time.

and there we go. a stronger piece of ‘hardware’ longer boot time. odd focusing. user interface is a little trippy. focus settings include standard, macro, super macro, pan focus, infinity, and manual. blah blah blah. more than enough zoom at 16.3 standard and 5.4 macro. its the Pentax Optio A30 from however long ago.
