Re: Merry Christmas everyone

I've been wondering if it'd be sensible to get one of those as a graduation present to myself Rather depends on what you value in a car, and how you intend using it. I think it's a great car to drive but, if you tried one, you might find it not to your liking. I've put a slightly wordier version of...

Re: Survey

I thought the reason Douglas Adams came up with 42 was because it was the ASCII code for a space not in any of the usual bases: Oct Dec Hex Char 040 32 20 SPACE 042 34 22 " 052 42 2A * 102 66 42 B So depending on whether you're using Octal, decimal or hex, it could be a quote mark, an asterisk...

Re: 20 mph limits - safer?
