A10 Thunderbolt

My question is who on your staff has an A-10 Thunderbolt/Warthog as their wallpaper?

Good choice.

WTF?

WTF are you reading El Reg at work for anyway.

Sarah is probably going to want slap me upside the head (no, pictures of that will not be in the public interest), but do you people really need to read El Reg during your work day?

Thumb Down

Prius

I drive up and down some hills between home and work. Almost every Prius drives the hills the same way. Driving slowly up the hill to conserve energy, then heavily braking all the way down the hill.

Reminds a little of the old VW Beetle out in the West of the USA. Only difference was no braking going down the mountain passing everyone then slowing to a crawl going up the next.

Which pretty much means Priuses are just like Beetles in that you see 'em, you get around 'em before you're stuck behind them.
