Re: Clumsy computer related mistakes

in Milliways
I had this Toshiba T3100 with a plasma screen which had a few stripes across the screen. I thought of fixing it by checking the screen cable and applying some pressure on the screen bezel and that's when I cracked the screen. One time I hooked up a PC I got from recycling and made a visual …

Re: What do you drive?

It's interesting to see what comes standard compared to my wife's 2013 BMW 520D M sport. I've got folding mirrors and drivers seat with memory. 2 things I'd thought be standard on a luxury brand like BMW? She's got heated seats. Something I thought would be standard on a brand that prides itself …

in Milliways
A company's bankruptcy statement, assorted business mails, accounting info, full OneDrive with active phone sync (family/business photos) etc. Very strange that someone would just give away a laptop with all this and not even wipe or remove the HDD.

Those are good points, however you keep bringing up high end cars such as BMW and Mercedes. Those cars do not interest me, I have no need of such opulence :P You'll find that many people do not care about stuff like that. Even if I won the lottery, I likely wouldn't splurge on something like that. …

Re: What do you drive?

Having all the torques in the world immediately is not something I would consider safe - there's going to have to be sensors and logic to control wheelspin, especially where I live in the winter. I had an E-class diesel wagon which had enough torque to move it quite briskly and lots of different …
