George, Brian, Luis, check your email for install party invite.

I bought the 32g wifi version the 3G version won't be out till the end of April. I filled it with a bunch of movies, it will work great on the airplane. the battery is incredible!!! my net book would die after 2 or 3 hours, but this thing just keeps on going, I have used it for two days and the battery is still at 90%

I have a feeling it's what it is... It's what I get for beating on an old truck that probably never saw more than 4,000 rpm. Stupid, yes. Do I know the truck's limit, yep

Rebuild is likely soon. It will allow me to solve some of the nagging 'old truck' symptoms it has as well as the nasty oil drip from somewhere. As well as rebuilding the trans, replacing steering box, alt, P/S pump, H20 and starter. Figure that the machine shop should be fairly cheap and Jason and I will build it once we get the parts back. After machine work, it shouldn't take too long to get it running again.

But I will replace whatever it needs just to drive it for the time being.

Gotta say, I still stand by my shop. Haters aside, there isn't anything that I've asked that they've not been able to do with a decent price and reliability. They built a kick-*** car with the 'aggresive tune' that I've been driving around for two years and almost 20K miles with no problems. The clutch decision was mine and it bugs me.

Only iPhone 3GS and the latest iPod touch will get multitasking. The 3G and 2nd gen iPod touch will get some stuff. iPhone EDGE is left out.

Um... yeah.....

Wanted to upgrade anyway. They'll likely announce new iPhone hardware before the OS comes out.

If you do the math when he talks about going 1 mile in 1.6 seconds, it's 3.92 mach, which at the altitude he was at, approx 80K, is 2,249.3MPH
I will be buying Sled Driver this weekend

Awesome. Any regrets or little things you don't like about it?

Dam man sounds like this car is turning into a money pit. You could've just went ahead and forged the stangs engine.

I believe you're thinking about Microsoft's Courier concept.

Microsoft Courier

From the rumors I've been reading online the next gen iphone will be called the iphoneHD. Announcement/Release date is supposed to be June 22. June 22 seems ways a way.

If that's the rumor, then it will most definitely not be called that.

You think June is a long ways away, how about the 2nd gen iPad?

Makes you just want to jump on board now, then sell it when the 2nd gen comes out.

Hopefully after this go-around you'll have a relaible DD that won't require alot of money to keep it going.

After all, wasn't that the original intent? An affordable, maintenance free DD?

Mustang news...

I'm still getting a little bit of oil gunk spooge coming out of my Pass. side breather even after installing the oil cap breather. Not as bad as before, but was hoping the extra breather would eliminate it.

Car seems to run great though, guess that's what counts.

If I don't get it within the next month I'll probably just hold out til the 2nd gen comes out.

What happened? I went to the last page and didn't see anything.

---------------
Anybody have a set of stock mirrors laying around? I really need to get my A47 mirros painted and would like some stockers so I can still drive around while the others are being painted.

SHR door handles are "out for delivery".

Sounds like some damage to the trans on your truck?

Nope, stockers are on my car.

Looking forward to the review on how easy they are to install, and fit and finish.

You need to get rid of those truck mirrors.

I'll try to take some pics and difficulty of install rating too.

The A47 mirrors look good, but not that good to me. If I wanted them, I could've beat Brian to the punch with Luis'.

My Tacoma mirrors are huge truck mirrors, those I wouldn't want on the stang.
