Or use the Ipod as a external drive (which is what i usually do, and i think that's what GP meant), download it to your friend's computer (if he doesn't have one his not your friend). Solved

Hey Sparrow, if you think IDing yourself is the same as "being tracked" or having to prove you are innocent of any given crime, you have issues buddy. I just said it as an example, as i, for one, have never had to proof my identity to the police, but if they required me to do it, i'd do it. That retarded way of thinking of yours is why there are so many problems of identity theft in the US, and so very very little here in Spain. I'll stick with our way of doing things. Thank you very much
That sounds like fun! What happens afterwards? Do you instantly die? If not I'd love to know how to do it (if you don't mind sharing). Thanx
That reminded me of the times I played Lemmings in my 386. Whenever i got bored or frustrated I would just put two lemmings in "guard" mode right where they came out into the level, and after getting them all packed into the 3 or 4 pixels left between the guards, I would hit the suicide button and watch all of those lemmings blow up. It was like fireworks! Pretty fireworks!
You REALLY must be new here.
Welcome to Slashdot and the Internet! (He must be new here, since he doesn't know about Google)
It might be so in the US or UK or wherever your are from, but in Spain everybody over eighteen is obligated to carry our national id (DNI) or similar. If you don't they have every right to take you "downtown" and verify your identity. I don't see the problem in proving you are who you say you are. Example:
COP: Afternoon sir, We are looking for a known serial killer named xxxx. May I see your ID?
RANDOM PERSON: No, but my name is yyyy, I'm not xxxx.
COP: Ok, thank you sir. Good day.
If you don't see a problem with that, you should go back to your cabin, Unabomber.
The thing about drug-testing (not alcohol) for driving purposes that always leaves me wondering is: how the they know I'm positively high? Maybe I shared a joint a month ago with my buddies, and since THC is fat-soluble it lasts longer than any other controlled substance in your system. Maybe it doesn't last for so long in your saliva, but still there should be a threshold just like there is with alcohol ( >0.23 = your are busted, 0.23 = you can go now). How do they legally state that you are not ok to operate a motor vehicle?? In my opinion the only way to assess this would be by legalizing, and then restricting. This way it's just nuts.
Half of the joke is only seen when you hover over the cartoon.
Man..., after all this time following xkcd, and i just learned that from you (I wondered what you meant, and i just checked it with monday's strip). I wonder what i've been missing all this time (not gonna recheck them). I guess i'll wait until i buy the book and hope they use the hover-over text as a bottom note.
I feel dumb. And judging by your +5 Informative, i'm not the only one who learnt something today.
IThe problem with the PS3 is not that it doesn't have software but
Let me stop you right there. The reason why the PS3 is not dominating the market is completely software related. It's related to the fact that you can't pirate PS3 games (hooray DRM!!). The very same reason why they made it so big with their first console (pirating games for the original PlayStation was the greatest selling point of their platform) is the reason they are not dominating right now. I noticed this a while back while thinking about purchasing a new console. If you do the math, xbos360 and a few pirate games totally wins over the PS3 and 50+ euros per game.
Just my 2 cents.
Seeing the results, it's obvious where most readers live. Me, I prefer CEE 7/16, which is the usual socket where I'm living right now (Spain), and I guess most of Europe. The French kind is the same but it's earth with a rod instead of a side connector, which makes it impossible to connect upside down. That's why I prefer CEE 7/16, the freedom; it's also very tough.

Time to take stock. Go home with some office supplies.
