" its not like the 18th century when finding out the time was a chore,"

Wrist watches were invented so that gentlemen would not have to reach into their pocket to pull out their watch. We've regressed back to that point.

Re: Right, $50 of bars will stop a 4000lb car going 74mph.

@Schultz

Downvoted because link is to article regarding removal of Mansfield bars for agricultural trucks. Has no applicability to side-impact collisions.

IIHS has tested aero panels as under-ride protection, they are worthless:

Enhanced panel (more expensive) can prevent side impact underride, but may complicate ground clearance, access and other actual trucking related issues.

How did you all miss this?

"We sold your contract on" he admits with the smugness that only comes from a watertight signed contract. "We had another more important customer who wanted your existing printers and these were the only things we could lay our hands on at short notice.

Which can only mean, the other customer didn't want these POS printers, so we have to come steal yours!

Need a what?

"It seems obvious that people building digital home movie collections on external hard drives will need a comprehensive labelling system to show the contents,"

Isn't that what Explorer/Finder/File Manager/insert favorite program name here is for?

I mean, when I want to see the contents of my external drive, I click on My Computer, and click on the drive. I don't stare at the case, hoping to divine the contents like Carnack!!

Tossers!!

Ubuntu One?

"Sadly, in our limited testing the Ubuntu One site continually timed out and threw proxy errors so we never able to login and sync our files. If nothing else, we take that as a sign that the service is popular with Ubuntu users."

If you replaced "Ubuntu" with "Microsoft" it would read like this:

Sadly, in our limited testing the MicrosoftOne site continually timed out and threw proxy errors so we never able to login and sync our files. If nothing else, we take that as a sign that the service is COMPLETE AND UTTER BOLLOCKS, AND MS CAN'T CODE THEIR WAY OUT OF A PAPER BAG!!

Really, why can't you just tell us Ubuntu One isn't working, or do a little actual investigating to find out why it isn't working, instead of MAKING THINGS UP?
