yeah seriously try to avoid the abuse. instead of ordering two seprate orders, you can just order two different 'packages' in one order (i believe?) there were 3 choices for the kind i ordered. its just minor varations in the size and shape of the thing.

eh, I used my gmail account and it worked....my company was...my school :P. but they say it should ship today, and with overnight FedEx shipping, it should get here monday, or tuesday at the latest.
Without games my life would have no meaning.
Well, I guess it would, but it would be a lot less fun!!!!!!!

You can use any email address, as they probably don't check them, it just looks less suspicious if they do have to check your account. I used my webmaster account from my school's website, and I had it shipped to my school.

well i figured out why the video got distorteted sometimes using this dc-dc convertor: it does need 9v to work properly. my battery is 8.4v. when it is fully charged it probably gets up to 9v or above. i tested it without charging and the video was messed up. then i fully charged it and it worked great. after playing a bit it got bad again because the battery was back down to 8.4v or whatever

The 233H's are backordered, I wonder how that happened...

I'll have to get a japanese address to send them to, they won't accept my APO box.
