Took Vlad with me to work today
Pretty quiet day all in all
Had to go to a client location at a local Wal-Mart because the fax machine was "broken", my diagnosis: it needs to be plugged in for it to work!
At least I got a little shopping done while I was there
So did you let Vlad have a go at that Dell server? I bet he'd wreck it in a matter of seconds, Vlad doesn't look like he has affinity with such stuff, but of course I could be wrong
Wow! Just read through the whole thread. What an amazing idea! I would love to be able to tour Vlad around Oahu. Maybe a trip to the USS Bowfin could be arranged. That is, if I am worthy enough to see Vlad.
Brought Vlad in to work with me again, rainy day out today, didn't get out as much as I wanted this week as I have been getting sick.
I figured it was time Vlad went on his next adventure. Jackrobinson is the next recipient, so I got Vlad ready for his long trip (not sure if Jack wants me posting where he lives, but it is pretty far away)! I used some extra bubble-wrap and Svorketter's box to prepare Vlad for a trip across the high seas (don't worry, I wiped down Vlad/cleaned my hands before packaging so no one else gets sick)
I enjoyed having Vlad for a bit, I think I can see myself buying a watch that is similar in the (near) future.
A big thank you to everyone in this thread, things like this are part of what makes this place so great!

Any updates on Vlads whereabouts?
Vlad's reception by compatriot brethren.
You couldn't imagine the noise they made with all the backslapping and Vodka toasting and heartfelt laughing.
Mind you, Vlad and young Aircraft Carrier got into a little fight, Vlad being a submariner the rivalry is intense.
As you can see here, young AC couldn't keep his liquor and is a bit offside.

Vlad arrived today at my place near Tel Aviv, Israel, after travelling for 51 days by ocean and land from Canada.
The box is slightly dented and had been opened by authorities from the bottom, slightly tearing a couple of flaps and the molded sponge cushion is missing. All that can be easily fixed before I ship.
Another thing is the minute and hour hands are not aligned. I'll give Vlad to my Russian watchmaker to fix that. I wonder how that happened in shipping.
