    Rant, Return shipping sucks.

    After they've received the item / sent the replacement, complain to customer service about the return shipping. I've done this in the past and have had success getting the amount refunded to me. If you don't ask, the answer is always "no".

    DAC to match something on the order of PPAv2

    You could always get a HagUSB to feed into it.

    Anybody want a Wii?

    Showed up at Toys R Us this morning hoping to score a GBMicro. Got lucky and was greeted by a manager handing out tickets to people that wanted Wii's. Yay!

    Burning CD's with a dual Core CPU

    Same here. With buffered cd/dvd writing, it's not much of a worry (regardless of cpu). The only time I've had to "ease up" with my dual core system was burning a dvd from the same SATA drive that I was both unraring a RAR archive on and parity checking another set of files on. The buffer meter...

    Refuse / Resist

    Saw this the other day. If it's real, the kid is awesome (He also has a video of him doing some Iron Maiden). ...and yes, that is pretty accurate. If you're into that kind of music (and I am), Sepultura is awesome.

    Ipod users (need suggestions on cases) (Ipod Photo)

    I recommend the iSkin Evo2. I've had one on my 4G 20GB since day 1 and have never regretted it. I recently jumped on the 189 60gb photo deal and have already ordered a Evo2 to go with it. I will say that if you have the money, the Vaja case is also quite worth it.

    Help me find these Jacks please

    DC Jack looks like Mouser P/N 163-4022 (look at page 887 of the current catalog). Mouser sells the other jack too (or the last time I ordered one, they did) but I'm not sure of the part number. They do carry the NYS215 that firefox mentioned.

    $189 Refub 60gb Ipod Photo back for 3 days !

    Thanks for the heads up! I've been looking to upgrade my 4G 20GB for a while. I was looking at the new 80GB models but given the price difference, I'd rather get the refurb 60gb photo for 189.

    What's with these Elna caps... ?

    Any update? I'm sure they are genuine but I, too, am curious why they are brown/white. I recently ordered 100uF/25V from digikey and got the brown/white caps.
