    at work it's just getting harder to spend time here since the red and white doesn't blend in very well...

    my only recent news, is that after about 32-33 years of regular to heavy use, i've given up caffeine. last sunday was my last day with any caffeine. the withdrawl has been nuts. still suffering a bit even after a week.
    It will be over soon. I don't know, I drank pop forever growing up, but I quit drinking it, switching to water right away. But for some reason, I didn't feel any sort of withdrawal like every said I was going to have.

    You should be ashamed... on the other hand, $188 for that is tempting.

    Well, to avoid getting yelled at, I emailed her at work. Her response was not what I would call pleasant, but at least she's prepped and I won't get the brunt of her initial reaction personally

    I just couldn't pass it up. Apparently I had good timing too - about 2 hours after I ordered, Dell pulled the coupon code. So, now it's $209 from Dell Small Business. I got it for $188, free shipping, $11 PA Sales tax, put it at $199 out the door. Not bad for a 24" monitor! This will replace my 17" standard ratio, analog-SVGA only, AOC LCD.

    I can't wait as this will be used mostly for gaming - it should be a lot more immersive. I was pretty satisfied with the 17", but after playing CoD4 at a computer store on a 22", I was really lusting after a 20"+ monitor. I think this one should suit my needs.

    Apple keeps insisting on sending me to the Apple Store to have them look at my MacBook. I wish they could just tell me what's wrong.

    The upper lefthand corner of my MacBook (by the magsafe plug), is making this weird buzzing noise. When I plug it in, the noise gets louder and sounds like a worn out bearing spinning.

    Sounds like a PSU issue. Is it only when you are connected to AC power?

    No, it was at home.

    And I hope it's not a PSU issue. That would put me on my 4th adapter.

    so, i just dropped nearly 1800 bucks on my 98 Forester yesterday.

    needed a clutch. it's always grabbed high, i think the lady who had it before me wasn't very good to it.
    had a torn cv joint boot, though no labor for that since the front transaxle was torn apart for the clutch.
    they also found a weird access panel on the black behind the clutch that was leaking. for some reason Subaru thought that it was a good idea to bolt a plastic door right to the block, sealed only with sealent, no gasket. the new part is metal, and thankfully cost about a third of the next part...

    had a "clock spring" in the steering wheel that had gone. took out my horn, airbag and cruise control for the last year or so. not having a horn was really annoying, but i had no idea about the cruise until they told me about it. that stupid spring cost $299 by itself, never mind the labor associated with working near a live airbag.

    had 'em do oil and lube too, but that was a relative drop in the bucket.

    runs like a champ now though. of course i still want to put new front struts in. it's a bit soft. it'll have to wait now, however.
