  1. At $80,000 I'd expect the band to come round my house and play.
  2. Scans? I just use FreeBSD, and Linux. No problem :thumbup:
  3. I can match the Prius mpg with my basic petrol car (no polluting batteries, or serious technology to go wrong). PLUS, I could buy three of mine for the price of a Prius, and still have change. Thus, if I was in the market for a Prius (I do not have that sort of free money) I could get a cheep car + solar panels for the house + donate towards electing more Greens!
  4. I got the train to work from our new railway station for the first time today: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corby_railway_station However, a weeks ticket to work costs £65, the petrol to drive costs just £30 - should not have such an economical car, then the train would not be quite so expensive :o
  5. One thing that always puts me of owning an electric car is recharging. We do not have a drive, so I would imagine that local kids would keep unplugging the lead out to the street, which would reduce range.
  6. I always thought it complete madness that work (UK) bought frozen packets of ready to cook chips from the Netherlands, but.... We are now getting frozen chips supplied by a Japanese company, which are made in China The brand name is Ever Green Brand, and they are supplied by the Shinyei Cooporation.
  7. If you are old enough to remember Roger Deans prog rock album covers............... http://rogerdean.com/architecture/index.htm :D
  8. If too many of them breed, it would always be the year of the rat Makes the ones at work look tiny.
  9. I read about this on the BBC about a month ago, and have been intending to post....
  10. Anything that encourages people to save energy has to be a good thing.
  11. Looks very much like the Carver ( http://www.carver-worldwide.com ), but then tilting three wheelers are bound to have similarities. A three wheeler can be very safe, if designed well, its a matter of positioning of the centre of gravity. Three wheeled electric, I like the Zap Xebra, a bit more utilitarian, which I like - don't do flash. http://www.zapworld.com/
  12. Makes you think about the effects of your activity. I try not to boil the kettle too often, and always use the correct amount of water. This time of year we do not use the kettle at all, but heat water on the wood burning stove. However, I Google profusely. We purchase our electricity from http://www.goodenergy.co.uk Although, I often wonder if this actually does save carbon dioxide. Plus, some days I go past our local wind farm, and the turbines are all stationary, yet we still have electricity in our home.
  13. Cup of tea or a Google? http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/7823387.stm
  14. Typical, lots of post while I'm selecting tunes on YouTube B)
  15. I think the reason no one has replied to this post is that its nigh on impossible to issolate one song as a favorite. On a day today level you have your favs of the current time - which you tend to hum a lot. Then there are the classic alltime song, but then there are so many gendres.... Todays fav song, which I've bugged everyone with at work today is Amish Paradise by Weird Al Yankovic ( http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=GsfVw9xxoNY ) As I walk through the valley where I harvest my grain I take a look at my wife and realize she's very plain But that's just perfect for an Amish like
  16. Point is, others should not be able to make what we have paid for obsolete.
  17. In every music collection there is going to be the odd duff CD. Shame you did not hear of the many great and glorious CDs/albums I have.
  18. That was very close!!! http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=qBm2J-gKeUE Sat here with head hung in shame.
  19. Why does it have to use a "specialist" application, whats wrong with .ogg, or MP3? I have a 2000 CD single (will not admit by who) which has a quicktime video on it. I tried playing it on the Mac once, it would not work in OSX, I had to open OS9 to run this "out of date" technology :o
  20. http://www.spotify.com/en/download/other/ If they can't be bothered to support Linux.........
  21. I got a USB turntable for Christmas, so I'll be going back to the record collection I have not been able to play for 20 years. Which should take some time, because I hardly ever get time to listen to my CDs; although I have started listening to CDs at work, when theres no one else around to moan about them.
  22. I went to work as usual and then we've been away to see family No more or less green than usual
  23. Think this article http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/4283117.stm sums up the difficulty for American car buyers, do you go for fuel Independence, or support American industry?
  24. I've always tended to think of Scandinavians as being ahead of the UK on environmental issues. In the UK at present there is certainly a stong feeling of mistrust against all politicians, and that things need to change. Alas, as this weeks Local By-election results show, in some places the British National Party are tapping into this feeling - close seconds in places with no history of standing are unheard of for minority parties.
