If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

Lucky if you get to keep it!

Ah, question time!

Do reviewers have deals where OCC send stuff for them to review or are the reviewers independant?

That remote control looks like a 1:1 copy of that of the iMon display I used to have in my rig!

I guess I have no excuse for not being as awesome as King... - iKillSteal

Seriously, big credit goes out to King for maintaining this list. He puts a lot of work into this thing and he deserves our thanks! - Verran
