As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I'm in the market for a set of electric hair clippers, primarily for use on my head in the apartment I'm moving in to shortly. I will potentially be moving around every 3 months or so and don't want to bother finding local places everywhere I go- besides, for the past year or so I've just been paying people to use clippers on me anyway, and that money can go other more important places.
Brands I know of:
Wahl, remington, conair, etc. - consumer-level sets that are mostly identical but vary in terms of accessories and such. Quality inconsistent, lifespan inconsistent.
Oster- professional-quality, very noisy, long lifespan, no accessories.
If I plan on doing my own hair, say once every two weeks, in my single-bedroom apartment, using only a #3 guide, what is the best fit? I'm looking to keep initial expenses down- I don't know for sure if this is something I'll be doing for years, and I already have to make several purchases that are large-cost-years-of-benefit, this being my first apartment (appliances and such). Anyone have experience / recommendations?
also, I've only ever known the guide I prefer as a #3, but different brands seem to have different systems- what is a 33 in inches or in whatever other systems there might be?
