Lastly, when paying, use PayPal since they cover your ass if/when a seller doesn't come through. It has happened to me before twice in like 7 years and PayPal has helped me out and refunded my money both times.
I would have to disagree with that. My mileage did vary.
A couple of years ago I used Paypal to buy a product that was never shipped. The vendor ignored my complaint, and Paypal equally ignored my complaint. And I mean IGNORED.
Where is the outrage directed at Infiniti?
I remember my many happy hours spent using 6600 serial 13. Especially because they were much fewer hours than I would have spent doing the same work on the CDC 1604 it replaced.
Other countries also have much better public transportation. Which the US lacks unless you're in a major city.
NZ does NOT have better public transportation than the US, sad to say.
New Zealand converted to metric in 1969. Many people still alive remember the Imperial units used before then (and there are lots of UK immigrants and lots of UK and US television and movies), so references to older units are still understood by most people in everyday conversation. For instance, fuel efficiency in automobiles is still referred to commonly as "mileage".
