    Re: Cost of car.

    Try owning a 2003 5.7 R8. $100 per week (400km) petrol, and go from there. $180+ per week is easily imaginable.

    Orcon USA connection pitiful

    First of all, a disclaimer. I am quite happy with Orcon over all, and their ADSL speed within NZ is fine, better than most.

    However, I am on their max/max plan and only care about connecting to...

    Hi all,

    I would suspect that the persons responsible for dropping the first bomb on you would quickly be back with another and the point would be moot.

    My distrust of the police comes from personal experience. I was not directly involved but witnessed an unprovoked assult by the police on a teenager that was clearly not resisting.

    Indeed. But generally, for most modern high capacity harddrives, you can partition them and put your OS on one and store oft used stuff on the other.

    If you partition into 3, you can then put OS...

    Re: amd duron (1.3ghz) is equal to pentium?

    At the time that P3 hit the market, it dominated AMD.

    My point was that this gap did indeed close up, but not until near the end of the P3 era.

    There are always going to be AMD supporters...

    The basic premise is zero traction between wheels and surface. Ask yourself if the plane could take off on a long flat stretch of oil covered ice, and most people would say yes. No difference.
