Comment Centro doesn't sync now anyways. (Score 0) 290

I have a Centro. It doesn't sync on Leopard either. Go google around. You'll find a bunch of "Buy MissingSync for Palm" forum replies. Apple even makes an SDK thinger for making iSync plugins. I tried to use it to make something for my Centro go. I'm not expert at mobile phone syncing protocols, but I'm pretty sure Palm (or ACCESS?) is retarded.

Comment Re:Watermelon as a biofuel. (Score 1, Insightful) 160

Pretty sure it's better to just bury those unused watermelons back under next season's crop. More compost means less fertilizer. Fertilizer comes from natural gas. If you want to use natural gas to move your car, you can just get a car that runs on natural gas. You don't have to convert it into watermelons first.

Comment Re:and yet NYC still has traffic jams (Score 1) 882

If I'm in the left lane, going the same speed as the car that is in front of me by a reasonable distance, and I see some dickhead behind me going about twice as fast as me and moving over to the right to pass me, I will try my best to speed up and catch up to the next car in the right lane before I get cut off. I might even down-shift. Watching that guy slam on the breaks and shoot over to the right 2 or 3 more lanes frantically trying to maintain is ridiculous speed is one of the only things keeping me sane on my commute. That guy sucks.
