I tend to not follow most music (except the stuff done at renaissance faires, which is mostly irish inspired), but many of my steampunk friends think Abney Park (http://www.abneypark.com/) is one of the main steampunk bands.

I had a listen to them.  Definitely nothing like the Myst soundtrack, which honestly, I only correlated based on the website art.  (sigh -- judging music by the album cover)  Ren Faire is definitely a better description.  Interesting stuff.  Not quite my cup of tea though.

That latest Rush album, Clockwork Angels, is strongly influenced by steampunk. It's pretty good.

A lupe (or loupe) for magnifying:



The clear sides let light in, and keep the target the correct distance away. This shows the detail on a LM358 chip:

I need one of those!  Those 0.1" ceramic caps and SMT parts can be hard to read.

I had a loupe prior to getting into electronics.  They used to be very useful for slides and negatives when used with a light box.  Haven't had to use it for that purpose for 10 years so it's now in the electronics lab.

Given the picture of the internals I'd be a bit nervous making a purchase.  They seem to have a misunderstanding regarding the word "solid-state".

Check warranty terms. See if they have a factory warranty. What they had last time I bought was a dealer warranty. Once of that was enough for me. The company won't back their own $#!+3 directly.

My experience with Seagate laptop drives that have a platter: they are noisy; they run hot.
