The invisbleshield feels weird. I kind of like how it adds some grip to it. However, it seems to like to attract fingerprints also, so I have to wipe my screen constantly when I haven't used it in awhile.
Overall, it's nice for only $7 (after shipping). I don't think I'll really pay $18 just for the screen. Maybe if I use it more, and adjust to it.
Is it normal to get a lot of glare when using it outside?

EDIT - Is it possible to play SCII offline without logging in?

Every time I go play as guest, it requires me to authenticate my copy. So the only time I can ever play offline is when I log in first, then log back out. Which is pretty stupid in my opinion. That means I can't play SCII when I go on a vacation or something similar.

Yeah, it does feel a little grippy. It's not bad, but just weird.

IMO this is the lamest part of SC2. I was at a friends house trying to show him SC2 and got that authentication crap. I installed and registered the copy of SC2 on my laptop but still got this message... "You are offline and SC2 needs authentication to play offline, please connect to the internet..." or something to that effect. Ummm if I'm trying to play offline I most likely don't have an internet connection durp! Good news though:

Soooo it appears that Blizzard is aware of the error in their ways and is addressing this in the upcoming patch. Let's hope for your sake that's before your vacation.

Replace the glass? It costs like $10 or less on ebay.

Cool picture. I've got an old 750x reflector telescope laying around. Maybe I should break it out sometime and get some photos.

Awesome. Yeah, it sucked when I try to play my copy on a place that doesn't have Wifi. Made me turn on my laptop a few times for no reason. I guess for now, I just put my laptop to sleep/hibernate after logging in.

Actually, it may not be configured for auto-merging yet.
