As I'm sure some of you have noted, EeeUser is down again. Last I got from the forum before it went belly up was that there is something not right about the database and/or server setup.
Wish I had the contact information for Ant - the Admin / Owner - so I could learn more what is going on, but I don't.
Oh well, life does go on... just as my Eee keeps soldiering on after several years of hard use, including a year in Africa.

Despite my somewhat funny tagline in the header of my other blog, traditional wetshaving can be had on the cheap without sacrificing much in the way of quality. To prove it, here is one suggestion for a starter kit costing less than 10$ (if bought from my favorite Turkish wetshaving webshop), consisting of items I have tried and enjoyed myself:
- A Racer razor, which is a good if slightly aggressive razor - 3.75$
- A Turkish No6 horse hair brush, which makes up in performance what it lacks in quality - 2.45$
- A tube of Arko shaving cream, which lathers easily and abundantly - 2.49$
- Ten Shark Super Chrome DE blades, which I've found rather well in the Racer razor - 0.85$
With a kit like this, and a steady hand, you can get about ten weeks worth of traditional wetshaving under your belt before you'll need to stock up on more supplies - and when you need more you'll need blades and perhaps more shaving cream. The razor and brush will last forever, if you take care of it.
So what you say? Is it worth a dollar a week to try traditional wetshaving?
