Instant boot. Startup sound is at least as modern as my Mac.
I don't want to have swappable USB drives, I want all hard drives available all the time on my network.
I use daisy-chained FireWire 800 externals as I only have a laptop. Mine is good for 16 devices per port, of which I have one 800 and one 400. So I'm good for 64TB, although that'd be 32 little PSUs, and FireWire externals tend to be quite a bit more expensive per unit than USB externals and of course raw internal drives.
LOLcats? srsly? I guess you're one of those oldies who still says ROTFL instead of rofl or pastes a link to the roflcopter...
The plan is to have it feed the fish while we are away.
Dr Brown, is that you? The terrorists called, they want their plutonium back...
Seriously though, that opening scene put me off automated pet food dispensers for life!
I built a 1GHz Athlon Thunderbird for my Mum in Christmas 2001. She's still using it six hours a day and it still does everything she wants, except streaming video.

Through Top Sites I have a 6x4 grid of thumbnails of my favourite websites. Looked gimmicky first time I saw it, but actually I find it a quick visual way to start my browsing session.
Bollocks - misread the summary. I thought it was saying they're building a wind farm in China.
providing enough power to meet the electrical needs of around 150,000 American homes.
California really are getting desperate. Also, that's a long cable; they'd better crank the voltage to reduce resistive loss...
And what American advertiser is going to want to place ads for videos that are seen in countries where they may not even have an establishment?
There's a huge opportunity being missed here - international targeted ads based on your locality using IP geolocation. McDonald's could pay megabucks for generic worldwide ads, while Tony's Steak House could pay a few thousand dollars for highly targeted ads in Rochester MN. That would really throw the Internet cat amongst the TV network pigeons.
Metallica make music? When did that start then?
I thought they were just a copyright lobby group?
Me too. I was going to paste my letter here, but since I have sent it now, I am frightened of peer review
service generally also being taken to be a good thing.
Clearly you don't own a BMW, where service is generally considered an assault (on your wallet).
