thanks alot, i posted pics and a vid in the whad did ya do thread the day after.


last night i went to plug in my phone, and no charge light. i shut it off, popped the battery for 30 mins, tried again, nothing. called sprint they sent me to their store to get it fixed and they said the charging port/usb outlet is busted off the motherboard and they cant fix it. long story short, i just paid sprint'* insurance company $100 to get it replaced. i bought the damn thing in october. i never charge it but at night on the nightstand or in the car slid up under the center console. i never even talk with it plugged in. so from where im standing, it looks like bad solder joints on sprints part. oh well. it is what it is. i told them to just bill me in the hopes ill have the $206 the 27th to pay the bill and the deductible. im considering getting one of those charging pads that use a case that constantly stays plugged into your phone to avoid this happening again.


ps. contracts suck!

I have never driven through one. Haha. My tires just have a tendency to pick up basically any piece of metal on the roads. I've gotten a piece of a utility knife blade, a part of a lock mechanism, screws, nails, and even an angel pendant stuck in my tires. Too bad they don't pick up anything of value. Haha


It looks like I need a new tire. There'* 3 small holes that are too close together to plug. Just great..

Well, I didn't need a new tire after. I got it plugged at another shop.

I had Torque running yesterday on my way back from my parents'. I was surprised by this:

Over the 450+ kms, I managed 33.6mpg. I'm not exactly how sure that is, but usually when I make that trip, I average 24-27mpg with a little more "spirited" driving..
