Theoretically, I could use tape, but it isn't the best solution. Strapping would be much more secure.

Not local, but I've seen them in the Bellingham Bev Mo.


Well, Bellingham, I consider local, LOL.


Can also find them in, Blaine, Birch Bay, Bob's Burgers and Grill, etc.

For premium pop, I find Haggen's in Ferndale, WA to have a great selection.

They are not cheap... but the taste of properly made root-beer and ginger ale is to die for!

Any knows a decent Shaw reseller that doesn't charge modem/installation fee when switching from Shaw? I only need it for 4months.

I'm with Shaw, but I do have a spare Moto 6141 modem I used to use back in Ontario that I know it's compatible with Shaw resellers. But the few resellers I found (CiK, Surf... etc) seems to ask mandatory modem purchase/rental.

My student promo on Shaw's internet is coming to an end, the same Internet30 is a whopping 70+ dollars vs. 30 I pay now. I thought about just staying with Shaw until July when I will cancel the service as I'd be spending a lot more time overseas and I can just stick with my cell internet when I'm back, but maybe there's some other options? (yes, I'm Asian... frugality lives in my DNA)

Going to check with Suntel tomorrow, but if anyone has any suggestion, I'm all ears (perhaps someone who works for shaw )

Lightspeed.ca you can use a your own modem and the activation fee is waived if you're already using Shaw. But the modem is only good for up to Internet15. You will need to buy a new modem is you want Internet30 or higher. Their website looks like shit and old for an internet service provider but it works LOL.

I just checked their website and your modem is not one of their approved ones. You can pick up an old Motorola 5120 modem on CraigsList for like $10

Fuck me... 6141 is basically the best DOCSIS3.0 modem out there except it's not up to 3.1 standard.

Going to give them a call. If the modem they sell is a good model and not outrageous, I might go for it.

Thanks!

They sell the Technicolor TNTC4300 modem at $85 plus tax and you can save on the shipping cost if you pick up the modem at their Burnaby office near Royal Oak Skytrain station. Since you're only going to sign up for 4 months, it's better to buy a cheap modem on CraigsList. I've seen old Motorola modems for sale on there for as low as $5

Try Fabricana. They have all sorts of fabrics, sewing supplies, and zippers. You can call them and find out.

Ebay has them too. Check out this vendor that seem to specialize in Zippers.

I pmed a ebay seller who would do 20 for $119 USD(155 CAD) shipped or 10 for $66 USD(87 CAD) shipped

if you guys are interested in a group buy, PM me. maybe we can get a better deal lol. was gonna grab 10-20 for myself. these are the made in Japan ones

I bought a 16"x26" limited edition out of 10 print the other day and I'm wondering the best place I can get it framed from? I know Michaels does it but just looking for the best bang for my buck.

Where's a good place to buy a DSC RFK5500 keypad?

The display on the one I have has been dead for some time. It would be nice to be able to see what's going on without having to run downstairs to see what's happening.

Check Tri-Ed in Burnaby to see if they will sell to the general public. RP Electronics sells DSC as well but they are on the pricier side.

Not Vancouver, but this is definitely my preferred source. Quality is top notch, and the range of finishes is nice.
