I just got word that a project I worked on needed an Excel file loaded into SharePoint. But the file contents were large and the file size was 100+ MB and could not be loaded into SharePoint because of some obscure restriction. So what did the project manager do? With several programmers and tech support personnel at their disposal they came up with the great idea to pay a temp person $200 to split the file into files of manageable, uploadable sizes.
Now, I'm just going to imagine that because you're commenting on

Meanwhile, hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) saw a dramatic rise of over 309 percent during the reporting period. Although the US and China recently agreed to reduce HFC production, the two countries accounted for the bulk of the increase in HFC emissions over the reporting period.
HFC use and emissions are rapidly increasing as a result of the phaseout of ozone-depleting substances (ODS) and growing global demand for air conditioning. Although safe for the ozone layer, the continued emissions of HFCs – primarily as alternatives to ODS and also from the continued production of HCFC-22 – will have an immediate and significant effect on the Earth’s climate system. Without further controls, it is predicted that HFC emissions could negate the entire climate benefits achieved under the Montreal Protocol."

Heh... There's levels of "intrepid Linux hacker"
Hell yes. I have an old laptop that connects to WiFi over the an Intel PRO/Wireless 2200 802.11bg AND print to a printer. When I looked in the mirror the next morning I had a full neckbeard.
all they could do with the brakes is turn off and on any "skid control" systems, the brake system on cars is STILL a mechanical/hydrochloric system , link from steering wheel to steering rack is not fly by wire in the EU, and cars still have "butterfly" valves for air intake, that is linked to pedal postion
Wow, the EU must be a pretty backward place. From a performance stand point, I know when they unveiled the new 2005 Mustangs in America a lot of people griped that the throttle is electronically controlled, there is no direct linkage. Not to mention, luxury brands like Lexus, Range Rover, etc all use electronic throttle control. Hell, do you remember all of the "unexplained" acceleration problems that Toyota had? It was because of electronic throttle control. PS, they lost the lawsuit that dealt with a 2005 Camry.
What next? Complaining about hidden compartment in desks?
I was thinking that the court can just order all paper to be made un-burnable. Because what's to stop me from writing a juicy secret on a piece of paper, handing it to you and when you're done reading it, you burn it? Sounds like either candles should be outlawed or loose leaf paper should be made out of asbestos and kevlar.
