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.

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.
