Ah, yes. Pure bliss. Something everyman
wants needs in their garage. The all-mighty: MAN-FRIDGE. Since I've reorganized my garage with the addition of a garage attic access ladder, I've had the chance to open up the garage for my workbench, stereo, tv and now the all-mighty beverage cooler (aka refridgerator)
I picked this up this fridge made by Danby dirt cheap at one of the local ApplianceSmart warehouses. This 11.1 cubic foot of cold-keeping contraption is the perfect man-accessory. For just a few hundred bucks, you could add one too!

After disconnecting the hard drive, re-seating it, slapping it a few times, I had given up. Working with computers as long as I have, I know the sound meant something bad. In my research I discovered getting a replacement drive is actually pretty cheap. I found a reputable place (www.santechusa.com)to purchase one from and ordered it up. $40 and a week later my iPod is a good as new! It even has a slightly bigger drive that it had before!
Not bad for an iPod I never paid for to begin with! (I got the iPod unknowingly when I purchased a 2004 Jetta TDI a few years back)

This podcast is called Tekzilla. It's a tech/gadget show which runs about 30 minutes in length. This podcast features Patrick Norton whom I watched for years on a different podcast called DL.TV. Well, he recently left that show to join the Revision 3 cast of characters and co-hosts it with Jessica Corbin. This podcast is fresh, hip and covers some cool technology gadgets and how-to's that will keep you entertained. (plus its nice to have a podcast thats features a woman for once; most podcasts consist of techno, geek guys such as myself)
Check it out!

The whole replacement process took me about 2 minutes! Sure beats sending it in or paying someone else to do it. With this new battery, my battery life is actually going to be longer than the OEM battery that Apple supplies with it.
I can do things like this, but can't lay bricks; go figure.
