First it's Windows... Now it's your power grid. HAHA They must be running windows. Haha CA electrical problems are pretty bad. My electricity bill has pretty much quadrupled in a couple of months. $200+... That's normal these days. I'm never home when the rolling blackouts hit; I'm always at work, and the company has a deal with PG&E to keep power on. I mean... If power goes down, so does the internet portal side of the business. IT's a no-no. But in turn... There aren't any lights on in the buildings all day. So it's fairly dark/ >> HAHAH!!!!

I'm a jerk, I passed on the right - get over it! HAHAHA >> What do you mean by "Standard?" > Verses automatic, transmission. Automatic. I chose the auto because I thought the Manual was a little hokey. The auto's the smoothest that I've found in a while. Plus have a manual tranny in SF is ridiculous.
