How do most people afford this? Seriously, I've drop 2-300$ over the last few months and am no where near the control panel that I'd like.
My wife is gonna toss me out if I keep buying misc. stuff from eBay and amazon.
Well.......time to butter her up.

I don't have a wife. It's that easy.

Right now I'm deciding whether to stop by the Apple store on the way home and buy an airport express as a wireless access point for my BCS box I'm building. (neener neener!)

Some people live in expensive houses, wear expensive clothing, drive expensive cars, and make expensive children.* I choose to spend my money on beer and brewing equipment

* According to the WSJ, a child born in 2009 will cost, on average, $222,360 to raise to maturity.

Piecemeal! I'm gathering pieces and parts and just putting them on a shelf for now. Yeah, it's going to take a while but with warmer weather coming, I'm going to want to brew outside...

Actually, as hobbies go, brewing is a pretty cheap one.

Although I am fast approaching my other hobby, paintball, I am still under that price. Although I have not gotten into building an entire rig yet. That's hopefully next year.
