    ...a laptop has too many chords out the side...

    Tell me about it. I had an Autoharp like that once.

    @Jackie - Hi :-)

    Re. places to buy bikes, I'm not sure if they do finance, but I've always found Planet Cycles near the top of Dominion Rd. to be very helpful.

    Thanks AllanM.

    Actually the EPH and roundabout are the least of my worries (I have no compunction about approaching the roundabout in the centre lane, sticking my hand out and rolling around at 20km/h - it's not like the traffic is going any faster). The bad bits are the bridges over the inlet, the dastardly 3-lane Panmure bridge being the worst; having to cross Harris Rd to get to $JOB (OK I admit it, going south I ride on the footpath); and coming home, the narrow stretch of Balmoral Road just before Mt Eden road.

    My commute. It's mostly pretty yuck-looking, which along with the heavy traffic and being just a bit too long for comfort, goes some way towards excusing me for only cycling once a week or so. Although now that my wife can drive, I may need to leave the car at home more often...

  • Hard News: Public Address: Technical Profile,

    I see I'll have to read PA from my FreeBSD box more often if I'm to beat your Solaris (SunOS) user. Consider this a challenge, unnamed unix user!

    Also from Grizzly Man:
    "I believe the common character of the universe is not harmony, but chaos, hostility, and murder."

    I admit I'm looking these up for accuracy, but I did remember them, honest.

    Re. TV quotes, "Money be green!" from The Wire, s.1 ep.1 is surprisingly useful.

  • Field Theory: Settle a bet,

    Even the Lord of the Rings trilogy didn't have a decent quote.

    "...And my axe!" doesn't do it for you?
