    Remember it's winter for us drivers and Michigan gets winters comparable to Southern Ontario. I'll take my time driving down there, as I'll be in 4' of blowing, drifting snow across the portion of Canada's busiest highway that is known as "Carnage Alley" for the sheer number of fatal accidents that occur (Highway 401 between London, Chatham & Windsor). :)

    How strict are the cops in Michigan? Do they get cranky about speeding 5-30 MPH over the limit? I'm used to cruising @ 145 KMH in a 100 KMH zone (90 in a 60 zone for those Imperial folks). :)

    Pretty cranky, but once you cross the border, you're only 3-4 miles from my office, so there's not gonna be too much driving to worry about.

    IF you declare it on the way into US and have no illegal CDs, Canada\US border is pretty good. Tell them you are going to a friend's place for the weekend. Sometimes they want to see hardware receipts if you have them, usually not-- easier if you have proof of purchase in Canada just in case(for US side). You MIGHT get a customs receipt or end up with the computer customs tagged and you might end up showing what they give you to customs on the way back.

    They should NOT open your computer, that would normally be illegal search, for BOTH sides of the border. Yuo CAN call Canadian customs (and local RCMP non-emergency number can tell who to talk with probably), they will tell you what you should need to do this, just tell them you plan to go to a friend's place or a computer mini-convention that trades computer knowledge for weekend to work on straightening out computer (gaming can get sweaty, that which gens sweat is WORK in physical sense) glitch because he is\they are helping for free. And all computers have glitches of one kind or another, right???

    Update:

    From here on out, I demand that everybody pay their registration fees via the "Folded Napkin" method, which is how I just got Leishi85's registration in the mail:

    u gotta understand, i had 40 dollars cash in it, who knows if someone will try to look and see what's in it, and take it, better be safe than sorry.
    so i stuck the money inbetween napkins.

    Good thing prime was paying attention - if he was reading his mail during lunch your registration $$ could have been used to wipe the mustard off his face, then tossed in the trash!

    :doh:

    I have done something similar before. I just used two envelopes instead of a napkin.

    Leishi was kind enough to include two napkins, so I'll use his extra napkin for your payment :)

    That would involve convincing my parents to let me go to Detroit and spend a weekend with people I don't know.

    I don't see a problem, but I anticipate that they will.
