    You guys are way too hard core for me. I was freezing! PJ also said thanks to PCFreak for letting her watch TV while Yrean and I talked shop.

    Durwood, don't believe anything Yrean says bad about the Silabs, hopefully, I'll have it fully integrated next month to prove him wrong.

    hey guys sorry I didnt make it to the meet today, I really tried. The wife and I left springfield at 12:30 in the afternoon and just got home about 10:30, not a good day. First I got popped for the tinted windows but he was cool and only gave the warning . Then I thought we would be on our way, OH NO think again. About 15 min later theres a tanker truck, an Envoy with a trailer, a Lumina, and then me and the wife in the Vibe. One of the tires on the tanker blew causing the fender that goes oner his tires to somehow fly off hitting the envoy and going under his trailer causing some damage to the side of his trailer and 2 flat tires on the passanger side of the trailer. The lumina was able swerve as there was noone beside him, and I didnt see it untill it was to late, tried to swerve almost hitting the car beside me nailing the fender between the passanger foglight and the center of my car sending it under my car also hitting shards of tire in the road, The damage caused by the fender is radiator, oilpan, front bumper, windshield washer bottle, and it tore a hole in the rear bumper, as well as 2 flat tires and alot of damage to the wheels on my passanger side (mostly scratches I hope). The passanger side also has scratches all down the car as well as I am missing the front fender flair and my rocker extension on the passanger side, as well as the passanger side mirror got chucked somewhere on I-55. I honestly think this was the most excitement I have ever had going 75mph!
    Luckly no one was hurt, If anyone sees a tanker trailer missing the right rear fender let me know cause Id like to beat him with a tire iron, since he didnt stop. When the police were called noone reported the truck as leavind the scene, but I got to see my trooper buddie that I recently met again.
    Hopefuy I can get the ins to cover it as a hit and runas the officer and my Ins. Both say that his company is at fault, but as noone recalls what company he works for cant get a claim from them. Had the car towed to the dealership and they should start to tear it down tuesday to fix it. Well at least there was no rainand the P.C. still works. See yall next month

    Well I did ask him f you had it wired to your external antenna and he said no. I don't think you will get any reception with that unless it's wired to your antenna instead of a wire.

    Damn, Aaron, sorry to hear that. That is crazy! Glad no one was seriously hurt. I always pictures cars flipping and such from trying to avoid things like that at high speeds. maybe I watch too many movies.
