Initially, brass and copper. Steel, aluminum, and other materials (including composites such as GRP) came into use during the 20th century.


Also, Foghat:

Joe, since you like Timberlands, I have an alternative for you that scores very high in style.


http://shop.timberland.com/product/i...uctId=12295795

barring that price of entry, I've heard good things about Blundstone boots (in terms of comfort), though my personal style thinks they're a little to boring, frumpy, casual.
http://www.blundstone.com/

Another option if you prefer your boots made by an old crusty horn-rimmed glasses guy with that 1950s filmstrip vibe on seafoam green machinery in Wisconsin is Allen Edmonds. You can get them rebuilt when they wear out or resoled as necessary and they're classic awesome.
http://www.allenedmonds.com/







Bonus points for them: they have a story: U.S. Shoemaker Allen Edmonds Regains Its Footing - Businessweek

I like them, but there's one small problem:

I will check out the other two places.

On that particular line of shoes, the reviews suggest they run a size too big. If you can find a free ship / free returns kind of deal, it might be worth the effort...

People often ask me what it means to be an American. I tell 'em it's triumph. Triumph. Triumph when we nuke our enemies. Triumph when when peer down from the moon and laugh heartily at Russia. Triumph when we depose one dictator after another. Triumph when we break into the homes of terrorist kingpins on the other side of Earth and shoot them in the face. Triumph when we use flying robots to bomb other terrorists in Afghanistan, and other nuclear robots to explore Mars. Triumph when we free Europe from *****. Triumph. Triumph. Triumph.

But it's not just the the big things, see? It's the way I can set up lawn chairs at my friends house on the Texas Rio Grande and share a toast to freedom while watching Mexicans charge into gunfire to enter my country. It's the way an Italian cabbie sits up straight and floors the gas when he hears my accent. It's seeing the wide eyes and bead of sweat running down the forehead of a German customs agent when he opens my passport. It's the way a French waiter hangs his head when I refuse the wine and ask for Coke instead, in English knowing full well he understands me (and that they have it). The way an Aussie blushes and leans into the urinal next to me in the bathroom, or the scowl that meets my smirk when I tip an English waiter in US dollars covered with Washington's face. The way small mobs of Canadian school children follow me from a distance to see what a free man looks like, or how heads timidly rise and women gather when my accent stops the music in the clubs of Amsterdam.

Triumph. Every bit of it, triumph. That's what it means to be an American.

Mate’n, Drinkin’, Bashing yobbos across Europe, .... ...people often ask me what it means to be an Australian. I tell 'em it's “Maaaaaaaaate ‘av anotha beer”. Beer. Beer when we drink our enemies under the table. Beer when we **** on the streets of Russia at 200am in a drunken stupor. Beer when we install one “democratically elected” leader after another. Beer when our crack SAS forces bust into the homes of terrorist kingpins on the other side of Earth and shoot them in the face. Beer when we can’t afford flying robots to bomb other terrorists in Afghanistan, and other nuclear robots to explore Mars. Beer when we free Europe from *****. Beer. Bash’n pooftas. Sheilas.
But it's not just the the big things, see? It's the way I can set up lawn chairs and sofas at my friends house in the 100HA back yard and share a toast to beer while watching Boat People charge into detention centres and cliff walls. It's the way an Italian cabbie is somehow related to me. It's seeing the wide eyes and excitement of a qt 3.14 German customs agent when she opens my passport. It's the way a French waiter hangs his head when I refuse the wine and ask for Beer instead, in English knowing full well he understands me (and that they have it). The way a Seppo blushes and leans into the urinal next to me in the bathroom, or bantering with the English waiter while we discuss the joys of a minimum wage. The way small mobs of New Zealand school children follow me from a distance to see what a free man looks like, or how heads timidly rise and women gather when my accent stops the music in the clubs of Amsterdam.
Beer. Every bit of it, beer. Thats what it means to be an Australian.

I started jacking with idle again today and was stuck in traffic for 3 hours with a car that wouldn't idle with the AC, lol. That was awful. I'm now trying MATxRPMM initial duty tables to get this ****** working. No more 1600rpm idle.

So it turns out that 2TB is the largest hard disk partition which can be natively created under WinXP-32.

This annoys me greatly.

Do I use a proprietary third-party tool (eg: Seagate DiscWizard) and deal with a non-standard format that will cause me trouble down the road if I ever migrate that disk into another machine? Do I bite the bullet and upgrade that machine to Win7-32, then deal with the contortions of GPT?

Or do you stop your digital hoarding and realize you almost never bother to watch/readl/listen to a majority of the media you have saved?

Alternatively, you need to invest in some seriously fire-proofed storage if you intend to serve as some sort of unofficial entertainment archivist after the fall of man.




Unless that is a work question, in which case, ignore me more than usual.

Nope, it's the home media server. And I hate deleting things. First, I have to remember to do it. Second, as soon as I delete something I'll immediately get the urge to watch it again ten years later.

I delete things that are easy to find and download again later if necessary. Things like popular shows and movies, especially those with a cult following, will always be readily available.

True. But it's quicker to just own the largest hard drive money can buy.

I've never understood saving movies/shows/etc that you're never going to view again.

I said the largest hard drive, not the largest array. At the moment, 4TB is the largest commercially-available capacity on one spindle in any category.
