    the fedex guy just dropped off my computer, a 2010 15" MBP, from repair this morning. I do live near a lot of applestores, but the mail-in option is so much more convenient and actually can be faster.

    I recieved the mail-in box on Tuesday and sent it off on Tuesday afternoon and got it back Thursday morning. All the repairs, express overnight shipping both ways were free - the best part is not having to deal with the "Genius Bar" standing in line in a crowded NYC applestore, and wasting my time.

    The battery was replaced, a screw on the under panel replaced, and a rubber foot replaced. Applecare was a good deal this time. The 3 year warranty ends in July so I may be selling it off. It was my first time with a 15" MBP (coming in from the old 12" and 13" versions) and I hated its bulkiness.

    when it comes to dealing with warranty for an iPhone - its better to go to the applestore (because they can just replace the thing on the spot if necessary), but anything computer hardware related - just do the mail-in/fedex option if you're in the USA.

    Aww shucks Neo, that's not me! That is a lady (which is suggested by various clues). Genevieve didn't know who she was either.

    I figure you two weigh about the same.

    I'll be honest, I would never have guessed that I'd be the best evaluator of feminine beauty on the whole Styleforum. And yet it's starting to look like I am. I expect Genevieve's judgments to be a little off, on account of she's a cat, but you guys don't have that excuse. (To the best of my knowledge, of course.)

    @Pio: Genevieve weighs in at about 7.5 lb. Neo has to weigh more than that because otherwise he would not be able to wield the scalpel as well as he does.

    also looks like the woman in the pic you provided before (without out horror movie make-up).

    you were asking who we thought the woman in the picture you provided was. I was making a hypothetical guess to it being linda blair.

    Ahh, I thought you were comparing her unfavorably to linda blair's character in the movie. It's Pia Zadora, whose beauty many SF regulars were refusing to acknowledge a couple of pages ago. I was hoping the picture I attached would prove me right conclusively. I don't think it had the intended effect!

    I've been dicking around with this fiber optic setup all week, trying to optimize it. The problem is that there are way too many different things to adjust: gotta get the lens in the right place, the fiber in the right place. It's about 12 degrees of freedom to optimize and no good way to control several of them.

    Today I found a little adapter widgit that removes five of those degrees and gives me good control over a sixth. Ought to make my job about 50x easier. Huzzah.

    I didn't like his second one, but I love the first one -- building it off Viva La Vida (one of, if not my all-time, favorite songs) was brilliant and worked perfectly. I didn't like the second one so much because he used really long phrases from the songs. It's also why I really like his latest one -- he uses < 1second audio from songs in most places, and blends them together perfectly.

    That said, I haven't explored his other music -- I'll have to do so. I only know about his billboard mixes. Any ones you'd recommend beyond the one you linked?
