Re: On the verge
Thanks, I was wondering where the Volt fans were. I live in Michigan and my driving and gas prices are about the same, but if I charge from 11 PM to 9 AM (completely programmable through web pages that connect to the car), Detroit Edison Electric Company charges me 7.75 cents/KWH. Less than a dollar for 20 miles in February, 40 miles in July, and if my battery goes flat, I still have 200+ miles worth of gas. The only 'range anxiety' Volt owners get is that using real gasoline screws up their statistics.
Detroit Edison has the smart meter, the Department of Energy gave me the charger (chargepoint.com), and OnStar coonects to the car. I've got more energy usage data than I can print on a whole loaf of Koch Industries' Wonder Bread. I didn't have to wait to buy the car either... the factory is in a Detroit suburb (they're made at the Cadillac plant) and they are for sale today.
There are many like it, but this Volt is mine... right down to the "Is it still called the gas pedal? This one goes to eleven" bumper sticker.
Another 30K hours to go before half of their rated lifetime!
Does it go titsup at 8k hours? I do not care for Seagate drives because of their incredibly short lifespan, but hey, fanbois who only use a drive for a year usually don't care. Report on the MTBF, *AND THE METHODS USED TO DETERMINE IT*, please!
Look at gyft.com . Gimmick or not, it's money.
Yes, BitPay will pay in dollars, euros, or British pounds, and 5 other currencies.
Yes, your bitcoins are worthless...
so send them to me. This bitcoin mining thing is crazy and weird, obviously it's a sucker ploy to rip-off your money, no need to find out more about it. Oh, and I would like to thank all the Chinese persons and MDMA junkies who recently helped me put a downpayment on a new Chevrolet.
LARGE please... not all of us are built like overweight circus midgets.
Re: This is just stupid
As an owner installed option, we shouldn't have any trouble suing them if they cause an accident. Texting while driving is illegal over here in some of the states, I'd guess just having it plugged in while moving would qualify for a citation.
Is that the best you can do?
You better make it quadruple within 4 years or your competition is going to clean your clock.
that's a shopping cart I dumped in a mud puddle behind the store. I was gonna go back later and steal it, but now EVERYBODY knows about it.
Does it work on beer cans?
Screw semiconductors, can I snap a battery on the bottom of a Barr's Irn-Bru and keep it frosty for a few hours?
Runtime Error: #define MAX_MARRIAGE_MEMBERS 2
I personally think marriage should be limited at 2 to 7 primates, and at least 29.0% of those with only one sex must be the other sex. Call me old fashioned.
Some of us in the US think it's a pretty strange place too. I enjoyed the reference to Luke. Not sure who said it first, but "I think it would be nice if someone would create a religeon based on the teachings of Jesus".
AMD support this time?
Can you run the server on AMD CPUs with Linux this time? Why am I not excited?
Never buy EA anyway
I will never NEVER give EA any money ever again. This is just one more example of why, but my permanent boycott of their stupidity started a long, long time ago.
>> If he didn't trust them for something like 'they're Republicans and I voted Democrat' then that's a different story...
No. It's not. It's also a good reason to open fire.
Black just got blacker. Can I get a leather jacket that does this?
Bad news... they're back ordered already :-)
Mandantory in the US
Bitch all you want... they absolutely demand the right to send you incredibly irritating garbage in the US.
They sent a 'Support Haiti' all points bulletin 9 days after the quake... it appeared to be a cheap afterthought that late.
If there were *any* other choice for a no-contract paygo provider here, I'd dump them.
That's why things are like mammals, they have mammaries. I love operating systems with big bouncy honking teats.
That's a helluva paper. It would appear that recent articles hailing the Joojoo are now additional evidence. Go, Mike, go.
Nope, they won't create a paywall...
They'll destroy the web site completely.
How about 1991?
Is glennbeckrapedandmurderedayounggirlin1991.com taken?
Does it have a plug?
Can I plug it into a power outlet? No plug, no buy!
