You can right-click on it and choose "view image" from the popup menu (at least, I can on my Mac, but I'm sure Windows does something similar). That photo was taken with my Centro, so it's not as large or hi-res as a real digital camera photo would be.

A very nice selection (brands, ring gauges) and a nice looking humidor that looks like it gives a good seal.

*sigh*

One of the things I miss on occasion, a good cigar.

Enjoying a Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur at the moment, purchased (most affordably) as part of a "grab bag". A very nice cigar. I've paired it with a dry martini, but can't help but think that it'd go much better with a good single malt Scotch. I'll have to try that next time.

OK, my humidor just plain sucks. I've tried various humidification devices, and can't keep it above 60%. Any recommendations?

Maybe dampen the ceder with clean rag, let sit for a day or so without cigars, check humidity and then add cigars. For the most part it is hit and miss with desk tops.

The thing is probably a bit drafty. Your best bet is to get a humidification device that is way oversized. I have a humidor I keep in my office which is a cheapy. I use a home made humidifier made from oasis foam in a plastic box the size of a brick. Most folks today seem to like the beads - a bowl of beads should work well too. To give it a test, set a bowl of water in the humidor and see if it holds humidity. If it doesnt then its probably hopeless.

This is a very late response, obviously, but I have been using the Boveda 75 packs and like them, whether in Rubbermaid servin'saver or wood humidor.
