  1. It's time

    I've been an admin here for a number of years. I've been a member for longer. I've had lots of great times on here and have made quite a few friends. Upon taking the Admin position I tried to distance myself from most of the central discussions as I thought it would make me biased against the situation.

    Also, you know you've picked the right one when this was your anniversary present!

  4. My own Holy Grail

    It took a bit of wheeling and dealing, but I managed to snag something quite important to me.

    The old connector is off. However, before we put the new one on, we're in prime position to take care of that pesky lockout chip. Turning the motherboard over will reveal it.
