    heh that's what you think...cost me $30 to send a 3Lb video card to a place just outside of LA from here in the Vancouver area...international shipping is a killer man.

    I'll sponsor ya....kinda like AA right ? :) Seriously, that Butler car amp would be worth some extra shipping charges or a drive over the border to a fellow Polkie's house to pick it up.

    Actually, the withdrawals and whatnot didn't affect me that badly. It surprised me as I got through the worst of it ok and so did those around me...except for that one idiot at work that I managed to duct tape to a hoist a few times :D
