    I don't think American History X was about somebody joining the swim team, though.
    ‎"Is that suck and salvage the Kevin Costner method?" - Chris Matthews on Hardball, July 6, 2010. Wonder if he's talking about his oil device or his movie career...

    I can do better than that! I dropped my pre-VP VDX to the hard floor from 3 1/2 feet. After that, it wouldn't sync on USB, only serial. I opened the case and out fell a surface-mount crystal oscillator . A little web-search and I found it's the same oscillator used by the USB clock!

    So I took it to a sterio repair shop and for $5 the re-soldered the tiny surface mount item! It worked perfectly!! (You should try that with your capacitor.)

    I don't have that VDX anymore, as I got it replaced for my VisorPhone (which was in turn replaced by my Treo!)


    Are you on a swim team?

    Oops, wrong one! Here's the autographed Treo. Hawkins signature was etched in the back of the unit...
