I like my iPhone. It does what I want it to do. I'm sure I'd like the droid just as much if/when I decide to switch. I'm not all crazy into electronicy things so it does what I want on a system I'm familiar with. End of story

Waaaaaaaaat!!!!! Wtf happened to car bradley!??!??!

I will be ignoring any apple discussion from here on out. To me they are still overpriced, and honestly after 5 years both the pc and mac would be paperweights and owners would want new ones. Also Ive heard both ends of the apple warranty spectrum. That being said, im done, it was started as me teasing andrei as bradley said. I guess no one understands that on teh internets anymore.

Ah a mac vs PC battle.

Macs are overpriced for the equipment, by FARRR. You can build a more powerful PC for less than half I'd imagine.. And if you have any computer knowledge at all it's hard to actually GET a virus. I've never not once had one from MY doing on my computer. My parents on the other hand... they click on anything. All you have to do is use common sense and a good program to scan torrents and other files you may download on the internet that could corrupt you - oh, and never use IE because you're begging to be backdoor'd. ;)


That said, Mac OS system is nice, it's comfy and easier to use IMO. Linux > Mac, thus PC > mac.

Also side note, I cant remember the first time I did my trans if I left the trans in there and was just able to separate the engine from the trans to just do the clutch or if I pulled it. I dont remember dealing with the axles and the gear oil the first time... I know I did second time b/c I had trans rebuilt...

Exhaust leak like a mofo you remember this from when we did brads t-belt?

I finally decided I was sick of it enough to have a shop do it but they want $600 to put a new turbo to dp gasket in along with 4 new turbo studs.

I said eff you I'll do it myself on a saturday afternoon once it stops being so GD cold out.

Good call Klod

Heard back from .:R guy. Will be stopping by with my dad on Sat morning.

Hoping car is in good conidition, my dad sounds like he's gunna be ok with me getting it.

I asked him if timing chains / water pump were done yet.

Also asked if he was willing to go lower on price if I didn't want any of the extra bits he was planning on giving away with the car. If not I'll just turn around and sell em myself so thats w/e.

Waiting for comfirmation on Sat morning and answers to those questions.

therefore PC > Linux?

also by your own logic a power user of a Linux box could run circles around any windows user on the planet.

ever sorted 10GB of music by id3 tag into folders in under 5 minutes using 1 command?
