I almost closed out my comment by saying that I was channeling you.
C'mon, to a Yuropeen, Ohio and California are exactly the same thing, but Scotland and England are totally different.
Now this is better commentary than that which you've been putting out of late.
Unfortunately, isn't this laziness vs. strongman similar to the ignorance vs. evil-genius dichotomy pushed forth under Bush II by his opponents?
How do you fuck something like that up?
All too easily it seems; my first MacBook Pro power lead caught fire a few years ago as well. This was the low-voltage (hence high current) end, though: in their quest to make everything thin and light, the cable was thin and flimsy, so one of the braided conductors frayed after a while. More current going down a thinner wire meant more heat - which softened the remaining copper and made the problem worse, until arcing started and I got a micro-firework display on my desk. (One of is successors managed to melt the plastic in the plug, that didn't make me happy either!)
On the mains end, even a hefty (for laptops) 300-odd watt PSU is only 3A from a US outlet, half that on the higher voltages elsewhere - usually easy enough to deal with, but one sloppy connection and you can get a tiny point getting very hot indeed. It's worse on the low voltage end: a single cable possibly carrying 20 or more amps, while getting rolled up, folded and stood on in transit, designed to be very light weight - yet also done on a budget. As soon as you start trying to shave weight and cost, I suspect it's all too easy for a wire to be just slightly too thin for the current, or a connection to be a little bit too weak for long term mobile use.
If you were building a high school or college electronics project and said you planned to run laptop currents and voltages through such thin wires and tiny connectors, you'd probably be told off or marked down - but commercially, thin, light and cheap trump safety margins and robustness.
Must be marketed toward the old geezer crowd or something.
No, you've got it exactly wrong. He's lamenting that they stopped marketing tape drives toward the old geezer crowd.
The Beretta 92fs is a dream. The 96, not so much. Much preferred is the Glock 22c. That little c actually makes a difference to me. A big difference. YMMV, and those suckers stopped making them, IIRC.
That's not his base; that's his owners.
The worst of the violence seemed to also coincide with the presence of out of towners showed up to join the legit Ferguson protests to their own pet causes.
He was apparently 293 lbs. That's bigger than me and i'm huge. (6' 7" and 265)
Unfortunately, we'll never know. Oh, sure, we'll get an answer of sorts that will alienate a good chunk of the population of the US, but it will be about as reassuring as the Warren Commission report.
All that hockey hullabaloo and that bitch Anne Murray too!
Or... and this may sound zany but hear me out. Maybe 51% of people did a risk/benefit analysis and decided that giving someone there password was actually beneficial for them.
Not possible. Only people who use devices in exactly the same manner as that proscribed by a
The rate increases when looking only at the subset of the population who post as AC.
I found another source that put the average at 2700 in 2009. So saying a 2400 sq ft home is huge is like saying, "My six-inch penis is huge".
It is, if you are measuring the radius.
And there was much rejoicing.
