I have in my house one simple screwdriver and it's enough for all my needs (opening the computer case and changing cards :) ). My dad has a full set of tools and about 20 different screwdrivers, because that's what he needs. .

Obviously, you still live with your parents.
  No-one can manage with just a size 2 Phillips - you can't even open a can of paint.

I don't feel good about this. Whatever you think about Danowsky and his lawfirm, he actually did his job.
I don't like the idea that people wouldn't be able to find a lawyer, just because lawfirms wouldn't dare to be associated with Internet related stuff.
At first, I must admit I thought it was a great idea, though - I'm not a Danowsky fan...

" strikes Sony music deal connects users who share the same music tastes
Fans of the Foo fighters, Kings of Leon or Natasha Bedingfield will soon be able to listen to their music through the social music site The service, bought in May for $280m (£140m) by CBS Corporation, has signed a deal with the Sony BMG record label. The partnership will give the web 2.0 service's 20 million users access to the entire Sony catalogue of music.""

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
