As is typical of Russian electronics, that's just a copy of a 300 million year old American design.

Let ?er drift: Ford?s hot hatch may be best yet - MarketWatch

Now, I wonder if its going to be 40K+

Probably.

Awesome though. Its sad when a Focus is the main competitor to the STI outside of pro-rally purpose built race car land. ****** Evo X. The Japanese never learn that the people who want their cars in North America are in it for light-cheapness, not heavy expensiveness.

My guess is around $35k to start, just like the STi.

I'm excited about the RS3, but I bet it will start near $55k. That's just too much for me.

Certain aspects of my life would be so much easier if ATT would let me run my Uverse gateway in bridge mode.

I tell you what. I double bridge my Fios router so I can run whatever I want.

This reminds me...

The old WDTV Live box I have in the living room (the one with a hard drive and component video) doesn't mind the fact that I'm using both Peerblock and PIA on the media-server box, however the newer one in the bedroom (HDMI only, no storage) loses its mind every time I turn it off, requiring me to disable all security on the server and re-establish network credentials before it'll see the media.

I need to create a second WiFi network in the house, consisting solely of the server and the crappier of the two WDTV boxes. And then figure out how to bind PIA and peerblock solely to the "real world" connection and not to the secondary connection. Not sure if that's even possible...

Yes, it is a real tattoo. Done by a shop called T'Ink Tank in Denver.

Braineack gave me this avatar a while back- it has no significance other than the duck.

Been thinking of changing it to something more befitting my position of authority mixed with egomania and penchant for random acts of savagery...

Hey Joe, how is the security at your station? Hacked French network exposed its own passwords during TV interview | Ars Technica

Most of the humans have been stranded on a planet which was subsequently conquered by the Cylons. They've attempted to revolt, but are taking heavily casualties and facing annihilation. Just as it appears that all hope is lost and they've resigned themselves to their fate, the building-sized Galactica jumps the planet's atmosphere right above the most intense of the action and starts falling like a whale, launching every fighter it can muster and taking massive damage in the process, then jumping away just moments before becoming a very large crater.

There's a shot where the camera pans down to a small group of humans on the ground who have been pinned down by enemy fire, They look up at the fighters screaming overhead, raining down death and destruction upon the enemy in one of the most visually intense scenes of close-air-support ever filmed, realize what's happening, and get this look on their heretofore shellshocked faces that basically says "I'll be damned. Looks like I'm not going to die today after all. Well, let's get this **** done!"

It's moving.


(much of the emotional impact of the scene is lost without the buildup to that moment- it's been a desolate, exhausting, hopeless, emotionally draining time for all involved.)

Ahhhh... that's why I didn't recognise it.

Too many people came up to me and gushed about it, so I've avoided it like the plague. I take it I should reevaluate?
