Ha ha yea I completely understand that. I find my arm is the best place it "doesn't get in the way" but then its sooo noticeable with tight sleved shirts or short sleves....wth all things its got its pros and cons. I actually passed through goldsboro the other day on my way to greenville. If you ever wanted to meet up I would be up for that. We could always meet half way or something I am sure we would have plenty in common and to talk about

I have mixed feelings about it. I like it and I don't. The insertion is quick and easy, the wireless factor is nice but finding a spot where it doesn't constantly get knocked and snagged all the time is becoming annoying. I find I am changing it a lot because it keeps getting hung up on stuff or what not. Where are you located?
