    You guys know about this?

    I just browse on it while at work, that's all. I'm sure it's still susceptible to whatever though. Once it dies, it'll get pitched...but it keeps on ticking. The battery life is all but gone and needs to be plugged in to function, lol. So what is Linux Mint? Replaces Windows or something? (I...

    Questions regarding spacers/lugs want to do it "cheaper" :rolleyes: I'm seeing the same price on ECS for either 40mm or 45mm bolts though, at $2.51/each:,_Studs,_-and-_Nuts/ It won't look "weird" if they're longer in the front, because you won't see...
