We are going to have a lot of gear talk on these forums. Done deal. And gear changes over time, so we might get some information rot. I wonder how we will handle that information rot, especially with the most variable piece of information: gear prices. I myself have answered gear questions where I gave the prices for things.
But should we be giving prices for things at all?
Prices vary a lot by city and country. And even if I chose the Amazon.com price, that will change in a year or two.
On the other hand, even if the exact numbers for a price changes, perhaps the general scale of costs is useful. Or perhaps it is only useful if we just show the difference in prices between competing projects.
