You could use Apache Open Office. It’s got all the stuff Microsoft Office does except the online backups and other cloud features. The reason I use it is it’s open source, so you get compatibility with every other office software suite without getting screwed over by proprietary extensions. The community develops Read more

The hood of that truck comes up higher into the windshield than the waistband of an eighty year old man out to get his morning paper.

Seriously, just make the fucking things bricks with two square headlights at either side. It’s just as stupid.

They have absolutely no restraint inside or out. They just said “Can we do that? Okay, add it in.” Wow.

I’m not saying they’re doomed, I’m saying they’ve suffered a punch to the gut and are pooling up money to pay for the recovery.

They’re losing a lot of money due to the recent controversy with that one particular movie that I’ll not mention the name of. People have cancelled subscriptions, their stock has started to drop, and there’s an investigation and multiple lawsuits that are doubtlessly eating up money. They’ll be cancelling small scale Read more

Monorails aren’t necessarily a worse idea, but they’re a more space efficient idea in the case of static routes. Roadways for cars can be built above, and monorails can be hung from below. It’s just a matter of planning.

Sadly planning is something American traffic and civil engineers seem to have forgotten about since Read more

“Bowser” was the surname of Nintendo Of America’s landlord for their headquarters back in the day. So they named the character after him in English. Just like how the English names of the Koopalings are based on musicians, or Kirby’s name is to honour the lawyer who defended Nintendo as a whole against Universal in Read more

Packing the court means abusing a technicality in how the Supreme Court works. As a gentleman’s agreement there have never been more than nine judges. But there is no upper limit written down. So packing the court would mean appointing two or four more Supreme Court Justices so we have eleven or thirteen. The problem Read more

Intel’s 11th-gen mobile processors are a system-on-a-chip (SoC), which integrates the CPU, GPU, and RAM soldered onto a single circuit.

It seems like every time they make a new road course, they just make it as straight as possible with loops at either end to get back to the straights. I mean, Rome had this F1 proposal in 2009 that everyone hopped on right away before Bernie Ecclestione told Rome to fuck off because they didn’t want to line his pockets

There’s also the factor that there’s almost nothing left for them to eat. Insect populations have dropped over 70% since 1980. The birds are starving to death.

That’s the thing that most caught me off guard. The steering’s accurate, and it’s fast. There’s no play, no lead-in. The throttle had no delay, but didn’t feel like it pulled any harder after the initial kick from launching or upshifting. The car stuck no matter how hard it was thrown, but I could still feel that slow Read more

When I was visiting a friend recently we saw one of those busses with the names of Orangino and Ghost Creep plastered on the side in ten foot tall white sans serif text. We passed by it, thinking it was just some dumbass who got lost and was trying to turn around in the gas station parking lot to get to the next Read more

The Z34 370Z feels very... The best way I can describe it is “fat” when you’re driving it. You can tell it has very high limits, but there’s so much getting in the way that you get fed up before you reach them. From the slow lazy way the tachometer drops after a shift, to the way you slowly feel the car lean over in a Read more

The angular almond shaped headlights are what make the grille look out of place. The cowards wouldn’t commit to round headlights like the S30 and S130 had. The way they explained it, they wanted to have S30 ZG front end, but hated the headlight covers. It’s like they don’t get the details that made the S30 look so Read more

Digital gauges. Yep. Nope. Nuh-uh. Why digital gauges if you have mechanicals in pods on the dashboard?

What’s sad is that the Dreamcast had a bunch of features Microsoft... Uh... Let’s politely say “took notes from” regarding online play, Windows CE multimedia capabilities, and onboard data storage. Then they shoved it all in the Xbox. The Dreamcast was really just a transitional console, stuck between the fifth Read more
