Re: Hi travel advice to the USA

Sunscreen tip is probably true. We currently have 17C or 63F right now in the height of our "summer" We travel with rental car and airplane, and I have no intension of go exploring Death Valley. But it is something to keep in mind. I will load the car with fuel and water. I have a photocopy of every...

Might be that the disk is somwhat slow and have not booted up buy the time that post is complete.

In bios try to disable fast powerup or somthing like that, it is a uncommon error but I have seen it on sata and ata disks so worth a try.

Wii Fit

Hi all, long time no see. Just wanted to drop in and give my impressions of Wii Fit. I bought it on release day here in the great frozen north and I find it a great game and have actually improved my physique quite a bit. I am untrained and in no illusion of that wiifit will make me more than a casu...

I know I have been long absent and all that but this is my two cents. I am the head of the IT department, not in legal stuff but in Relestate. Most people that know about IT at any real level has a problem in communicating that information to other people, and in many cases have no desire what so ev...

deflect criticism by defensively lashing out at ... you guessed it ... the fact that people drive cars. First of I did not bring up a car into this you did.

Oh that's a great idea.

Of course, because when you take a taxi, you don't use any energy, unlike using your own car! :roll: Did you even think this shit through, or are you so busy sniffing glue that this actually makes sense to you?

My car is a four-cylinder model and is quite efficient at doing a job which cannot practically be done without a car at all, at least not until the public transit in this city improves.

Re: Threw avay my microwave oven

Suppose someone said: "Indeed, but I have a reason to drive a huge SUV. I do not like the way it feels to drive in a regular car. I prefer driving a huge SUV." Would you find that logic similarly convincing? It's still unethical to use energy (especially 10x as much as you need to) just for some va...

Re: Threw avay my microwave oven

You're missing the point. Energy is fairly cheap now , but the cost of energy has been increasing for some time, and will continue to increase. In any case, it's unethical to waste energy for no reason. Indeed, but I have a reason. I do not like the way food comes out of a micro. I prefer it to be ...

Re: Threw avay my microwave oven

Energy is plentiful. Cheap energy is not. Perhaps, I dont know the rates in Canada. But one kWh is 0.77kr here or $0.11us I can take the difference between a regular oven and a microvave, and I more than make up for it buy using a killswitch on my TV, WII, DVD and all other standbuy crap that goes ...

Re: Threw avay my microwave oven

I don't use the oven at all unless absolutely necessary, as it is highly energy inefficient compared with a microwave, and efficiency = life in the coming world. You will sorely regret your choice to keep your old inefficient oven instead of a microwave oven. Energy is plentiful, if we could just g...

Yes.

Bought it for 780 000kr ~$110 000us, not so long ago the sold an identical for 1 200 000kr or ~$167 000us, so I am a happy camper.

How fucking wasteful.

Threw avay my microwave oven

Okay, I just threw away my fully functional Microwave oven, because I newer used it and it was taking space in my kitchen. The last time it was used I heated some stuff that I can put in a regular owen and be done in 30-40 minutes or put it in the mico and be done in 7. But if I micro then it feels ...
