Dell x50v traded in for x51v. Thank you Dell and EA Austin B

Short story: I bought an x50v from a Pawn Shop. I bought the Windows Mobile 5 upgrade CDs off ebay. The upgrade stunk. Slow, locked up, mysterious battery discharges, you name it. So, I downgraded. Now, I hear that Dell is giving some people an exchange for a refurb x51v if your x50v is under warranty. Turns out mine is, and EVEN THOUGH I bought the PDA and CD through different third parties, and not from Dell directly, they are sending me an x51v. Thanks to Dell and 'EA Austin B' from the Dell chat technical support area! I chatted with him online on three occasions and he helped me transfer the ownership officially, and get the x51v. For what it's worth I have bought directly from Dell before. 1 desktop and 2 laptops. Maybe that helped. :)

Yikes again

Girlfriend Pillow

Don't have the real thing? Cuddly pillow is a real "friend."

Lay your head on your "girlfriend's" lap. Soft plush pillow comes complete with red miniskirt. Great for bachelor parties or actually quite functional for reading in bed. Polyester velvet with plump polyfill.

Free Slurpee at 7-11 today

They do this pretty much every 7/11 during each year. From comes this tidbit: …I just got off the phone with a friendly customer service rep from 7-11 (Jason) who let me know that, yes, in fact they are giving away free Slurpees tomorrow. He also let me know that if you go to a 7-11 who is not participating in the promotion, give them a call at 800-255-0711 and they will send out coupons for a free Slurpee.

I forgot to ask, but I assume that it is the promotional, 7.11 ounce version of the frozen drink, which is plenty of sugary goodness for me.

OPR / EPR Bullet database

It's bit crude at this point but it works. Like many of my inventions. Click here to download it. It has some data in there already for a couple of ranks and AFSC's. Instructions are included for the import file format. If you would kindly send me some bullets in the format in the .ZIP, I will add them to the database.
