    Might be less of a UHALL and more of a different sub forum thread, but wanted to pass along a site that is great for tracking Amazon prices. I use this site for everything. For example, today I received an E-Mail alert that the processor I currently use (and plan to buy again for a second, future product), which is on sale for $159.99:

    http://camelcamelcamel.com/AMD-FD8350FRHKBOX-FX-8350-FX-Series-Edition/product/B009O7YUF6

    Using this site you can find out the lowest price of anything Amazon sells, from books to cds, to peripherals. What you do is copy the part of the address following the /dp/:

    http://www.amazon.com/AMD-FD8350FRHKBOX-FX-8350-FX-Series-Edition/dp/B009O7YUF6/

    Then you paste it in the Camel search section:

    For example, let's say you wanted to buy UO Samurai Empire ($7.88) because you wanted to read the Haiku by George P. on the back of the CD jewel case (for those who still don't know G.v.P are my initials ;P):
    http://www.amazon.com/Ultima-Online-Samurai-Empire-Expansion-Pack/dp/B00062VFGK/

    According to Camel, this product was lowest at $7.63 on June 8, 2012, and not offered directly through Amazon since March 9, 2013, theoretically. Therefore, $7.88 for a G.v.P poem is pretty good ;).

    By the way, I'm not sure if I've mentioned it before, but I ended up getting the "Official Strategy Guide" from a Goodwill for $1 last year. I didn't expect to find UO stuff at a thrift store, but you never know what you'll find.
