Apparently, if you took off the plastic casing and baked it properly in a medium oven, you could enact a more permanent fix. I haven't been game to try it, though.

Comment issue here is simple (Score 1) 286

If I ask a grocer for 2kg of potatoes, and he gives me 1kg of potatoes and charges me for 2kg, I think I have a right to complain. Why do we let computer people get away with that sort of nonsense?

Comment anti-Russian bias (Score 0) 667

I had previously suggested that RIAA was just a disguise, a mask used by the Big4 companies behind RIAA, and suggested that we actually refer to them by name: Warner, EMI, Sony, and Universal. Together they form the acronym WESU, as in "We sue! Yes, we do!"

That's for the US, though. This is the Canadian affiliate, WESUC.
