A/C issues

My A/C went out back in Sep 2010 and thought the worst as far as repairs but today i got it fixed for $1.42. My A/C orifice tube filter was completely clogged and after replacing the filter and recharging the system I now have cold air. This is a photo of my problem.

Looks like your system needs flushed or didn't get flushed when the comp went out..

Hahaha! Makes you sick when you find out it wasn't that bad. But glad it was cheap.

Here is a "general" schematic of an a/c system. Shows the order of parts.
