    You can't use "Mechanix" gloves while doing intricate work. Trust me, I'm a Jaguar mechanic...I know this stuff...




    Anyways, I wonder what I would do with these two powerbooks if I wasn't going to get my money refunded? I think they'd make some sweet junkyard warriors...
    Like one of them could be a privacy writing tablet/cupholder and the other a can opener...
