Re: Hollywood Box Office Down 15%

I have never seen a survey that says piracy helps box office revenue. Indeed it's hard to see how that might even possibly work. But if it does, I will start a new business taking stuff off the shelves at WalMart and explaining to them how I'm [more]

Re: Hollywood Box Office Down 15%

Hollywood is sure to scream piracy, even though it seems as if most studies are saying the pirates actually help box office revenue. $8 popcorn (and similar captive audience price gouging) certainly doesn't help things, but the sad truth is, they're [more]

Perhaps he is an alien.

We did all this preliminary talk and their spiel got to the point where they said the windows would be custom made so I would need to set aside 90 minutes for measurement and discussion. I immediately assumed that this was going to be very [more]

Re: PS2 to USB adapters

It's likely that your USB port isn't supplying enough power to feed both the adapter and the keyboard. You can try passing the signal through a powered USB hub first (computer > powered hub > adapter > keyboard) to boost the available [more]

Re: Oil Mistake

I don’t know anyone that has a car that uses 5W 20 oil so I’ll probably use it to top off the oil in DW’s van.

Check your lawnmower ;)

Re: Oil Mistake

I drained it and replaced it with 5W 30. I now have 5-quarts of full synthetic 5W 20 that I would like to use up. How about mixing it with say 10W 40 or 50 and use it for future oil changes??

Re: Oil Mistake

Depends on the car... some euro makes, for example, will call for 50 weight oil and become quite upset if you feed it something lighter, while others will just wear the oil down faster. Since you're driving a rather large GM engine (quite possibly [more]

Re: OT Iraq again

I would expect they can tell which way water flows.

Knowing which way it'll go, versus how much there will be when it gets there, are two very different issues.

Re: OT Iraq again

Interesting that, reportedly, the Kurds took a beating.

Nobody's perfect, and you can be sure that unlike the Iraqi regulars, they're busy figuring out what went wrong and why so they don't take the same beating again.

Re: New defense fashion for women

I think it more likely that there is less of a cultural stigma associated with reporting the assault in the US and EU than India, making the Indian numbers look better, while hiding the truth.

I've had the same one since my junior year of college (nearly 20 years now, eek!), and it's great for things like DD's fish sticks and chicken nuggest, Costco spinakapita, or other little things (just a couple of cookies, pop tarts, etc). However, as [more]
