Actually I do Dan. There had been some minor interference coming through the amp occassionally and this cleared that up right away. And it is probably my imagination but I think my tone has improved as well, seems almost a little smoother. Can't really put my finger on it. But I am happy with it.

The whole smoother tone thing is what i described in my review last year, i think it's an actual "feature" rather then just in your head.
We need to get more folks on the smooth tone train  ;D

Another purchase I had to make this morning was my Political Science textbook which the campus bookstore said wasn't in when in fact it really was and I had to wait an hour for the building to open so I could get in and purchase it.  I also have to go buy goggles tomorrow for my Intro to Chem class. 

College is such stress sometimes. 

But I love the geek pit, as we call it.

Oooh, chemistry.
If you're in luck, you'll get an older professor, and he/she will teach you how to make some nifty little things, like nitrogen triiodide  ;D

Really?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    :D

I'll have to look up Nitrogen Triiodide.  I had chem at one point, then I chickened out and didn't want to take it in high school so now I'm taking it.  So far, I remember how to write scientific notation which is as far as we've gotten. 

Or I could ask my lovely sibling what Nitrogen Triiodide is.  She's in a higher chem class than I'm in. 

Can I guess?

Is it something highly flammable or explosive?

Ammonia + Iodine crystals.
It goes BOOM, and it's even more sensitive then Nitroglycerin.
Then again, you can make this stuff fine enough to be harmless for small pranks, like coating the surface of a table with it.
Then if someone puts something on it, it makes a small bang  ;D

WICKED AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have to keep that in mind for future pranks. 

I really should have taken chemistry in High School.  I won't learn about that stuff unless I choose to take a higher chem class.  But my guess was in the same ball park.

YOU GUYS WILL NEVER GUESS THIS ONE!!!!!!!!!

The vending machine that sold/sells the goggles that I need for chem class was broken so I had to go to the college book store and pay $9.95 but if you added tax to that it came out $10.90.  The goggles cost only $10.00 at the machine if was working.  I'm just really frustrated that I had to spend almost and extra dollar on goggles that I'm only probably going to use once in my life.

If you only use them once, you're doing it wrong.
Good practice during any chem test = gloves, protective eyewear, and a means to extinguish a chemical fire and treat chemical burns nearby.

Once as in just for this quarter.  Not once during the whole quarter.  If it was, then yeah it was a total waste of $10.90 that I could have saved.

They get you coming and going!

We bought one of my sons a laptop for Xmas and he just started college but can't use the laptop that we bought him.  College politics!  My hubby and I were furious.  What can you do though?  We had to rent one for him for the year.  NOT happy!

Ask your son if the the College has Wi Fi that he has to go register for.  That's how my college works.  You can bring your own laptop but you have to have it registered by the College in order to use the Wi Fi.  I haven't registered my computer because I spend more time practicing between classes than doing homework.  And my homework so far is to just read chapters.  No big assignments yet. 

How's your hand doing by the way?  Maybe should have left it for a PM.

Or he just could hack it.
Shouldn't be a huge problem if i look at how most people, companies and schools secure their w-lan. :D
