    beertokens to @Phoenix? He doesn't use alcohol...

    I can't say whether a reasonable donation to his Gratitude fund will persuade him. You will have to tag him again to ask about that.

    Phoenix, Congratulations on your new laptop order. I think your new laptop deserves a stand alone thread once you receive it. Knowing you, I am sure it will be full of images and information that will be very useful to everyone who is interested in this new hardware and other potential buyers !
