    Firefox issue

    I've had this problem before. Open NOTEPAD Start --> run --> NOTEPAD (enter) Enter the following in notepad: XCOPY %1 "C:\" (replace the "c:\" with a different path if you wish) Save it as "savefile.bat" or something .BAT and then close Notepad. When the Firefox box comes up, select the...

    Web host went belly up - how to rescue my domain name?

    Domain registrars are agents of the root servers (internic.net, operated by Network Solutions), and in the event they go out of business, Network Solutions takes over and you simply have an account with Network Solutions at that point, and you can transfer your domain from NetSol to anywhere...

    Web host went belly up - how to rescue my domain name?

    This happens all the time. Enom will probably have you complete, sign and notarize a form that releases them from the liability of granting you the transfer, and then you move it wherever you want.

    Airbag IED

    There are two problems with using an explosive to protect your property from being stolen: 1. In a legal system where a person is "innocent until proven guilty" it's impossible to prove intent to steal the rims if the perpetrator is unable to carry out the crime due to the crime prevention...

    Next on the chopping block: Knifes

    Cobra's fine. It makes my garage look nice. But I hardly get to play with it much anymore. I've been travelling all the time on business and read the forums during flights that have Internet access.

    They might as well ban stupidity, except the entire government would have to go to jail.

    Old TG series: was Tiff a good presenter?

    I agree with what you've all said, but I think he used to be a lot better. His review of the McLaren F1 a few years back was really entertaining. I don't think FifthGear is helping him improve his presentation skills. It's sortof pushing him downhill.

    Which is the greatest car review ever?

    The Porsche Carrera GT review was my favorite. I work with a lot of German engineers and I still smile when I think of JC's "point of view of the Germans" when I have to listen to their seemingly endless engineering presentations in meetings.

    Since it's illegal in most countries to sell a product at a manufacturing loss, and there are no where near enough parts on that car to account for $5 million, they are obviously bragging about the entire cost of the project, including development costs, divided by the number of cars they plan...

    [07x05] December 11th, 2005

    TopGear is a scripted entertainment show, not reality. They are carrying along with them a huge production crew, and they have to stop and setup for staged camera shots all along the route. I can't imagine the camera crews loading up their gear, speeding past the Veyron far enough ahead to...

    [07x05] December 11th, 2005

    I had to go back and watch that part again, and I extracted a few clips. There's certainly a difference in the number of people, but the stadium wasn't empty. Considering TopGear probably didn't have access to the track until after the real race, most of the audience probably left before the...

    I know it has already all been said. I'm disappointed in this episode because we never actually got to see the car do anything other than zoom past the camera. It was like listening to someone describing how good a porn movie was.

    Announcing the FinalGear.com Torrent Feed

    I travel about three weeks of every month right now. The dune buggy business is still paying its own bills, but I'm spending most of my time with http://www.sunturbine.com right now. Finalgear is a good way to deal with airplane boredom. I receive the RSS feed on an Outlook desktop and it...
