    Haha well, it was slightly different on the Thunderbolt, but it only took a few days to get used to.

    Nice phone :). That reminds me, I should get a Bluetooth OBDII reader and Torque for my phone, I got my first legit check engine light a few days ago and it would have saved me some time when dealing with it.

    You can get them for $10 - $15 on eBay. Just look up "bluetooth elm327". The cheap ones are ELM327-compatible knockoffs, but they generally work perfectly well.

    As a note, don't get any advertised as "V 1.5" because ELM327 1.5 doesn't exist. I own this one and it's worked with every car I've tried: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ELM327-OBDI...316?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c60e69584

    Kinda funny that a $5 app can do the majority of things that used to require thousands of dollars of equipment.

    I could have sworn you had more....did you sell them all?

    A few weeks? That looks like it's been through a year or two already....what did you do the poor thing? Used it as a replacement hammer when you couldn't find the proper one?

    Haha yeah, I put my phones through hell, but my camera made it look far worse than it does IRL... You can't really see all those little tiny scratches or the crud in the seam IRL.

    Without flash on, the picture looks a bit more like it does to me, though for some reason the picture comes out blurry without it. (My business cellphone camera sucks, hah. Or more accurately my business phone sucks entirely.)

    My mum just informed me she is sending this over to me as my late birthday present.
    I plan to put it away until EARLY next year when I can get a CPU (Hopefully a 6 core one) to match with it.

    That seems like it would be an awkward item to try to ship.

    This laptop is fantastic. It's built like a tank, looks great, and has decent power. Best of all, I got it for $80 (sans upgrades) of Craigslist. :)

    Why go to all that effort for an ancient hunk of junk? especially when I know you can afford much better (as the SSDs prove)

    Ah, a quality case. A bit more than you need but a great choice if money is less tight.

    I kind of liked the case after watching some reviews on it on youtube, plus the case is good for cable management as well.

    wow... everyone is buying new computer stuff, Even I got my salary but I can't buy any desktop stuff cause I don't have any place to keep a desktop. I bought a PS3 game but that's all I'm buying this month.

    I started playing left4dead2 again. but I get no forum members playing the game anymore.
