Packing home theater gear?
The only way to pack and ship them with insurance is to use a pack and ship place and have them pack it for you, it is expensive! I sold an old pair of B&W 802's (the original ones that are really 803's now) and think it was a couple hundred d... 
Powerconditioners for digital?

I moved to New Zealand a few months back and the best beer I have found here is Yeastie Boys His Majesty's Ale. Beer is insanely expensive here though......
