thats why we need le bige make instead of a quarterpounder with cheese.
Please refer to IG's First Law of Everything for the explanation of why the USA has not gone metric yet.
I think I mentioned this somewhere else recently -- since food packagers always seem to be slyly reducing the size of their packages in order to avoid raising the price, they ought to take the opportunity to go metric. An 8 ounce can of tuna now contains only 5 ounces (barely enough for one sandwich). The next time they shrink the can they could go to 100 grams (3.527 ounces) and most people won't know what hit them until they need to buy two or three cans just to make lunch.
Er... I've used Skype before.
Unfortunately, zooer, I do not, though I'm hoping to get some practical experience, as some things have been happening in my neighborhood which have given me cause to start investigating such a system.
are plenty of cheap cameras available, but the quality is lacking. I have fooled around with "motion" using web cameras, but wanted something better. I
could not get Zoneminder to work on my older machine but I didn't put too much effort into it.
I would like a decent outdoor IP camera, not necessarily for security but it could be used for that
whew, didn't know one would have to watch basic instinct to listen to a nail-printer once again...
Now this is relay cool.
watch the video.
Does anyone have experiences with IP cameras, wireless or otherwise. Commentssuggestions appreciated.
I'd be interested in knowing if anyone has located a *cheap* IP camera. I'd love to deploy a few of them in and around my house -- partially for security but mostly for the fun factor. :)

One snowstorm the entire season. Looks like you lost this round.
So fucking cool:
/me needs to start manufacturing a reprap.
Samsung NP305E5A-A03US for $479.99: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=176
There is also a Toshiba and Gateway lappy with similar specs (either Core i5-2450M or AMD A6-3420m).
Comments/suggestions/s? How do Asus/Samsungf/Gateway/Toshiba stack up against the other? Longevity? Durability? etc.?
Wow! I like it.
Dell Inspiron 15RN-3647 15.6" Laptop - $499.99
But as I mentioned elsewhere, I think my next laptop will probably something more like the Asus Transformer than a traditional laptop (once the prices come down of course).

Check this out.
I'm so excited about devices like this starting to become available at super-low prices. Eventually the SoC's will become so commoditized that they'll simply build them into every new monitor and television. The specs on this one are quite reasonable for running Android, which would make it perfect if you wanted to combine it with a monitor and make a nice little Internet terminal, or if you wanted to plug it into your TV and use it to watch YouTube etc.
I was going to buy a Raspberry Pi when they became available, but now I might change my mind.
