$7(was $12) w/shipping Bluetooth OBD2 Adapter

For youz having trouble, what happens if you post a link in your own post, then try and follow it after it's been posted and parsed?

And/Or what happens on very short URLs like http://www.cbs.com


After I just posted the above and previewed, I not that - I originally entered (spelled out so it doesn't trigger the parsers) www dot cbs dot com. I did NOT include the ht** or colon, slashes. Previewing it added the htt* and other prefix characters.

Here's five versions of the same url -

http://www.cbs.com

http://www.cbs.com

http://www.cbs.com/

http://www.cbs.com/

[url]cbs.com[/url]

Each one above entered differently. The server apparently modified all of them to the same format except for the last one, which it sensibly doesn't recognize as a url.

Surely there are geeks here who look at that and know right off the bat "Oh that's yer parse encode trifectul arsolator - perfectly normal".

STILL not working for me (not even the CBS links above). I remember the site threw a tantrum like this about this time last year actually. I'm guessing someone eventually straightened it out.

If I click on the link, I get two new tabs that open with the homepage.

If I right-click on the link, I get one.

Either way, it opens the homepage.



However, if I click on the link in Will's signature, it opens properly.

These are now down to $7 w/shipping. I already gave mine away, going to have to order a couple more.

Trolls take away from productive work, best to starve the troll of attention by ignoring it and going about your business.

I was going order one of these things until I remembered that I would like to stream music from my tablet/phone over Bluetooth while driving. Since this OBD2 adapter uses Bluetooth, I'd have to choose one or the other, but not both. So, I found this one on Amazon for admittedly more money, but it works using WiFi thus freeing up Bluetooth for my music. As you can see, it looks pretty much the same other than the label and the fact that it uses WiFi instead of Bluetooth.
