Looking now, Sneeky's FS thread had a Naos 8200. Sounds like this mouse is a different (albeit similar) one. (Sneeky basically does reviews on stuff, right?)

Do we have a date planned yet? Are we still thinking mid-Feb?

Yeah sneekypeet reviews stuff, and I like his reviews alot. I always go to his reviews for stuff he's selling too to get an honest opinion about it.

Dates should be 2/15-2/22, which will be coming up soon, so we need to get our rigs in line and see if we can get anyone else to join us.

Holy crap!!!!!!! That is sooooooooooooooooooo awesome of you Mike!!! Very nice pair of prizes for sure. I am assuming these will both go out as a package prize?

And, as always, Sneeky is sooooooo generous. :clap: This is working up to be a sweet contest!
