  1. Windows 7 recognizes more - XP would cap out at low RAM. I recently got a Samsing Galaxy Vibrant. Adroid Phones FTW. My froends mostly have iPhones and brag about them... then this morning 3 of them were late for work because iPhone alarm settings failed yesterday and today, a problem that happened back in November but Apple didn't patch. Also, they show off apps they bought, but get upset when I go into the Android market and find similar apps - often the same one but for a different platform - offered free of charge for Android phones. iPhones look nice, but I gave up on Apple a lo
  2. Thanks Lotus4s and Molemot! Molemot - glad to hear you're doing better! If you want to give to Strong And Free to help ensure it goes off without a hitch, please do. There's a 'donate' button in the upper right corner of the website, but that's specifically for the campaign expenses so when I perform my ride, 100% of the dollars raised go directly to Prostate Cancer Canada. If you're more comfortable giving directly to Prostate Cancer Canada, they're setting up an event page on their site to collect donations during the event, but that's not 'till summer. It seems a long way off b
  3. some of you may remember when I starved myself this summer to call attention to the dangers of poor eating habits and fad diets. As part of my recovery from the dangerous stunt (don't try this at home), I was given a bike to ride around on by a locak bike shop, building muscle back up with a low impact workout. I hadn't been on a bike since I was about 9, but I was quickly hooked. Within 5 weeks I was up to 50 km/day. So... I've partnered with Prostate Cancer Canada (since they only get a fraction of the funding that the pink ribbon bunch get), and will be riding my bike from coast to
  4. Citroen has been making those commercials for years, long before this current movie came out
  5. yup. Nice to be able to add GPS, 120 GB of MP3 sound, etc. whilst replacing the ugly factory stereo...
  6. added a carputer system to my RX-7. Carmen, my current 1985 GSL-SE, had originally received Pamela's Sony CD/ MP3 player. A gorgeous unit that, when set in orange illumination mode, looked high-tech and yet factory at the same time. But after 6 years and a lot of use, it's speaker output began to fail. At the same time, my interest in carputers was growing. And so I contacted Chris Wood at Mobile Computer Solutions in Pennsylvania, and had him create a system within my specs.

  7. Received my copy today, the third printing with additional pages added at the end - this book is brilliant!
  8. I loved it both as a good story and as a technical accomplishment. You may have noticed these scenes too, but as a film maker I was particularely drawn to the 'extended' scenes shot in one continuous take - like when they're playing that game in the car, the mob attacks, they escape, police follow, etc... all one shot, non-stop camera without cutting away to another angle. Similar one-take scenes near the end but I won't describe them for fear of posting spoilers for those who haven't seen the film.
  9. My auto-login seems to be working once again - thanks B
  10. In another forum people were posting links to music videos. I posted this one as "Ferrari - musica di motore"
