    carshopping with klankymen - cheap to buy, insure, fuel up & repair - and rwd??

    OK, here's the deal. Since I live in the city, I don't need a car. I can reach everything using bike, public transport & bumming a ride from other people. I've done so fine for quite some time now, and I could surely continue to do so. But I kind of want a car. Just for fun. So here's my...

    DAW / Music Sequencer programs.... what's the big difference?

    In the interest mainly of a friend, but partially my own interest, I've been trying to research MIDI / music sequencer programs. As far as I can tell there are plenty of big names out there, all of which I can find good reviews on. To name the biggest I've come across, Cubase Ableton Live...

    Volkswagen Mk4 Chav 1.6

    Well, since I've been on these forums for over a year now, and the car is gonna get scrapped soon, I figured I'd post it up before it's too late. It's an unreliable piece of crap, but I kinda like it. All modifications pre-purchase, I wouldn't bother spending money on exterior modifications...

    What car is truly "indestructable"?

    Well, since Mk4 VW Golfs are fragile pieces of crap, I've been thinking... what's better? This isn't necessarily a buying advice thread, since I don't have a huge amount of money, but I can't afford to fix the problems with the Golf, and my parents don't feel like paying for it either. So while...

    No 56k: Classic Jaguar(s)

    Sorry for the shitty pictures, I only had my cell phone handy. Racing spec (IIRC) E-Type, still has the original british license plate on it :D The owner of this car has several other classic jags, amongst others an E-Type Coupe V12 with only 9000 miles on it. I may get the chance to go...

    Getting rid of these stupid icons?

    Hello. I have 2 icons in my windows taskbar which serve no purpose other than to annoy me: One of them is telling me to stay up to date, the other is alerting me that my computer might not be safe (thanks for the info, i have enough pop ups telling me that!). I'm certainly not going to pay...

    Microwave

    So, I'm twenty years old, and have never had a microwave before. Today I came across one cheaply (read: free), and I gratefully accepted. However, what do I do with it? Having never had a microwave before, I have no idea what I can make with it (apart from warming up leftovers). I figured it...

    No 56k: klankymen makes some gourmet shiznit (for a student that is)

    OK, since I was so epically amazed by my BLT yesterday, I decided to make myself another today, and document that shiznit abit. It would be so much better if I could make some proper pictures, but unfortunately I only have my cameraphone now. First off, you need some basic ingredients: Start...

    Hitting on a girl that has a boyfriend?

    OK, I was just out eating with a couple mates, and we started discussing... Is it OK to hit on / flirt with / try to pick up / try to hook up with a girl that has a boyfriend? Anyways, we came to the conclusion, that it's sorta OK, assuming that you don't know the dude, and that obviously there...

    Car doesn't start - sometimes.

    OK, I've been having some weird problems with my car, maybe you guys can diagnose it - seem to be some pretty knowledgeable people here. It's a 2000 Mk4 Golf, with a 1.6litre petrol engine, I bought it used last year. Anyway, here's the weird thing, some times it won't start. Usually after...

    Hangover cures...

    So, given the current relevance, I thought I'd ask if anyone has any good hangover cures.... My main strategy is to stay/get as hydrated as possible, preferably with the side effect of some vitamins. Just drank a whole bottle of 100% fruit juice orange juice and now my stomach seems to be at...

    Am I the only one disillusioned by voting?

    Well, it's a leap year again, which means voting time... And yet.... I don't feel the urge to vote. I mean, sure, voting is a great concept, and it's supposed to allow you a say in how your country is run. BUT, the thing that I can't get my head around is the fact that, whether I vote Obama, or...

    ACK! Thats what you get for 'upgrading' OS - controller won't work

    Well, this is partially a rant thread, partially a plea for help... I have a wired xbox360 controller that I use (or rather used to use) to play computer games. It's a great controller, and I used it very successfully in the past. This year my computer was going crazy, so I had to format it...
