Re: Vehicles spotted in your neighborhood

Saw this lovely 356c on my ride home yesterday through london. I wouldn't take a car like this out in london's streets at the moment, but obviously this guy (or girl) felt they could risk it.

It was a lovely day, and it was next to a park, not really riot central.

Re: Nokia N9

so if you like the N9 have you seen this: http://www.zdnet.com/blog/gadgetreviews/sneak-peek-at-nokias-first-windows-phone-7-looks-just-like-the-n9/25774 It's basically a sneak peak of Nokia's first WP7 offering. It looks exactly like the N9... The problem with Meego is that everyone is unsure that ...

Re: It is just me..

I'd say that it is definitely not just you that used the dimensions filter but, when it was there it did make choosing the correct size slightly more confusing for people who don't care about pixel dimensions. It's just another distraction for a regular user and makes the side bar filters appear les...

Re: Students online presence

I landed my first job through an internship I got through Twitter. It's always good to follow people you don't quite know for that reason. Personally I started out with wordpress, blogger, issuu, coroflot, twitter and linked in and now have managed to amalgamate that into a Tumblr, which is perfect ...

Re: Vehicles spotted in your neighborhood

Saw this about 2001 on the street in Palo Alto and a friend happened to snap a few shots. Kind of akin to burning a pile of cash in front of a homeless person. The bird shit and leaves in the carbon fiber intake really drive the message home. Probably belonged to Ellison, but then again It is Palo ...

Re: Folding knives

Here in britain, if we're found carrying a blade of a certain length we can be arrested on the spot, and it'll be confiscated. For interest, I own a few victorinox pocket knives one of which has a lockable blade, but I only carry them when I go out camping etc. So here's a question to you guys who t...

The number plate actually reads "RYM4N"...For those of you in the know, Theo Paphitis is the Chairman of a stationary chain store called Rymans. Weird numberplate to have though.
