then fire up the replacement computer, as this one is 4 weeks old have locks up..(dells testing showed harddrive on way out) the send a computer but it was the wrong one.. so.. fingers crossed this one will be correct..
then load everything onto the new one.. and then I can built a build thread/journal ..
then get ready to .wire the gauges, and be clean and ready to watch, our pats, kill the N.Y. jets..

eliptical done,,
foul, honey doo list....added sneak attack
