    you see.... it's the spare bedroom that was more a tv room for when hubby didn't want to watch what i was watching in the computer room.... (which USED to have the best tv in the house since it's the most watched)... he'd go in there to watch tv sometimes...... (we only watch tv in the living room when we rent or watch a movie) well when he got the x-box.... he also got an HD tv for it (yes... ROLLS EYES) so it's been renamed the xbox room! it has the best tv in the house now... but is rarely watched (again... ROLLS EYES) AND when we switched over to directv from dish... we even got a dvr for that room so he could pause and record things he wanted to watch (i still do the important stuff like heros in the computer room!) (and more importantly no more excuses for not letting brie out when she rings the bell!)

    Wireless speeds are rated in letters... A, B, G, N just go for the highest letter available but make sure that it is backwards compatible.

    Is the laptop a 15.4 inch display? I have a Toshiba that looks almost identical.

    yes.... it's a 15 something.... he was looking at 17's but decided to go with 15 for portability (and the 15 had better stuff!)

    he was looking mainly at toshibas and HP's... the HP won out (obviously)

    it has N wireless, i believe.... if i remember correctly (and it listed b and g, too)

    so i guess i need to look into N routers and a card for my computer (do they make combo ones that i can plug my desktop in and use the laptop and xbox as wireless? or is that a dumb thought to even ask about?)

    I don't know about the xbox, but it's simple to get your desktop wireless. But assuming you'll have your wireless router where your current one is, there's no benefit.

    I don't like wireless...The connection is awful and if you try to do something that requires constant bandwith it always seems to pause at the worst moments

    You can buy a standard wireless router and it will generally have 4 wired ports and the wireless capability. Put the router into the room with the desktop computer and the modem (cable or DSL). then the XBOX and the laptop can connect to the router wirelessly (or wired if you want)

    A is faster than B, and N has compatibility issues between the different flavors.


    Isn't N still draft?

    Is that like the 10MB hard drive which, in 1987, was "bigger than anything I would ever need"?

    Crankset, no question assuming you have the stock Roleur. You might actually notice smoother shifting and better stiffness. Not sure the fork would improve things that much. Besides the DA crankset has more bling

    yeah i have the Truvativ Roleur. ive been leaning towards the crankset for a more overall performance gain. but the Easton fork looks freakin sweet too. its only 290g!

    ...which saves you what? 60 grams? Switching to the DA crankset saves almost that much. Which means you get to eat one more cookie.

    You should have held out for these:

    Pearl Izumi has just introduced bike shorts that are Bluetooth compatible and have an integrated Mp3 player with 16 hours of storage. The Vertex MP3 Bib Short sells for $500, and if you can afford that you can probably afford the hospital bill. Just think -- drivers will no longer be the only people on the road distracted by a cell phone in one ear and music in the other. Sounds risky to us. Pearl says $100 from each pair of shorts sold will benefit the Davis Phinney Foundation for Parkinson's research. We say forget the shorts and send that C-note to Davis via http://www.davisphinneyfoundation.com

    I thought those were kind of interesting, but cost too much and aren't iPod compatible. Besides, my shuffle works great for my rides.

    I agree, though, send the money to the Phinney Foundation instead.

    The back of the video ipod also doubles as a mirror...for us self absorbed women who need to even check ourselves while riding

    Just get a little helmet mirror and mount it in the middle so you can look at yourself while you ride...

    Or, get one of these: http://www2.oregonscientific.com/sho...cid=77&pid=709

    Then you can look at yourself later, as well.

    Not a bad idea -- but then others are gonna want to borrow it But I do like the fact that it's waterproof and can handle ACTION

    Speaking of mirrors. Does anyone know where to get the small bar-end mirrors? They are of the small type and don't really seem to allow much adjustability but I like the fact that it is out of the way and looks somewhat secured to the bar end. These are not to be confused with some of the larger bar-end mirrors that are about the circumference of a soda can.
