It's true! I started with just a simple Metallica album, and now I'm addicted to crack and heroin, and I always have my Glock 40 on me in case I need to kill cops!
..It makes me wonder if the movie will be like "Reefer Madness" or something. It'd be great to see "This man killed his family after torrenting an entire KISS collection over the internet. Now he is pleading insanity in court, all because that one song he P2P'd!"

define "ok". Will it sound like drop C#? Yes. Will the strings be flopping everywhere, buzz like crazy, and go out of tune every 3 seconds? Yes.
Drop C# is a half a step down with the low E string dropped a step from that. They aren't going to be flopping everywhere. I've gone as far as C# standard with 8's and they were fine. If they're buzzing like crazy and going out of tune it's your guitar, not the strings.
Eh, it's a coolish temperature. I wear t-shirts, cargo shorts, and a jacket pretty much no matter what temperature it is, so don't trust my judgment. People from California might think that's freezing.
My plan worked, as it turns out, putting 8-52 stainless steel Ernie Ball's on my RG7321 was the most ingenious thing I've ever done in terms of strings. I don't have to worry about corrosion, I can tune up to C#, or down to A standard, and the strings surprisingly aren't too flappy when I tune down. I'm pleased about that.
Just leave the nut unlocked when you play. I mean, if you really wanted to you could get a roller nut or something like that, but I don't know if that would really affect your tuning stability. I would invest in some better tuners, and get a tremol-no.
I've got a quick question for you guys. I bought my 7 string back in November of 07', and I love the extra range I can get. Unfortunately, the only 7 string sets that Guitar Center has are D'Addarios. However, no matter what I do, my fingers have some magic power that causes my high strings to rust after about an hour or two of playing, even after wiping down the strings and putting a coating of fast fret on them. So, I have decided to order some stainless steel strings from Ernie Ball for a few reasons.
1. I can specify what gauge I would like to order without worrying about if they have them in stock. 2. Stainless Steel won't corrode on me, and the strings should last longer 3. I can order sets of single gauges up to 60.
So what I'm thinking is ordering some 6 string sets of extra light (8-38) or light (9-42)'s, and ordering a set of single 52 or 54 gauge low strings. I figure, if I have the lighter strings, not only will I be able to play down tuned from B, but also either one or two steps up from B. So I figure it should give me a good range between A standard, up to around C and C# (six string tuned, with the high E ignored, or used for really high bends)
Huh... that's interesting, I never did much investigation into Loose Change because the first time I saw it I knew it was a bunch of crap. But I do find it quite interesting that his Marrs douchebag was their source. All these conspiracies about 9/11 are so ridiculous in the first place. They criticize Bush for being dumb and then claim that he had the intelligence to plot to attack his own country. Now, I don't think that Bush is dumb, I think he has a problem with public speaking. Every time he gets up there he's all nervous and starts speaking in half broken English, and that's why everyone thinks he's dumber than he really is. Thanks for posting this though, it will give some of these conspiracy theorists something to think about.
That's called a tailpiece wrap. You screw the tailpiece down to the body of the guitar all the way and then wrap the string around it so your action is lower and you get a kind of looser string tension effect.
