I have spent approximately eight seasons of available Frontline episodes converting this into an excel spreadsheet for market research purposes. Having seen the price on that page I'm a little taken aback; I bought it for $7.

I am down to "Harry Winston" "Xemex" and "Zenith", approximately fifteen pages of ingest left of 377.

According to Quicken I spent approximately $21k last year in pursuit of horological goals. I have 51 college credits towards this. I guess it's real.
