Naw, no ritual or anything. Just gotta take the old one off and put the new one on. It can be a little disorenting until you get the new one broken in, however.

It also give you a chance to wash the bloodsplatters off of the old one

An XTR≤ would make me happy but I'm sure I'll get a carton of Marlboro instead.

I got BF 1942 for my self for my birthday and I'm not normally a FPS gamer but WOW is it ever great, definatly the best game to come out in 2002.







I have no clue what I am getting for christmas, I'm hoping for the Logitech MX700 Wireless Optical mouse


but my parents and girl friends are not the most techy people in the world and probably didn't get me anything computer related.

oh well I will have to treat my self
