Batch Utility

Smarter Traffic?

Motorcycke Riders...curious who else rides>>>

what they ride and if they have a GPS onboard:

To start off, I have an '05 Road Star with a TT340S XL in a Ram Mount and a 1982 GS1100E bare bones.

Anyone else care to share their ride and rig?

Update my car DVD for $149 or not

I have a 2006 Odyssey and I received a letter asking if I wanted to buy the GPS DVD update for $149. The car navi is not as easy to use as my handheld but I know I always have it in that car if I do need it. Any pros and cons would be helpful. Thanks.

Bell System Technical Journal Archives

For the techies in the group.

Bell Labs was the birthplace of many technologies and scientific discoveries that virtually define our understanding of the modern world and The Bell System Technical Journal (BSTJ) was the record of those achievements.

The entire archives of the BSTJ were placed online by Alcatel-Lucent and can now be accessed here.

Will you use your GPS more now, with higher gas prices for a "cheaper" route?

I think I will start using a little more my Garmin when driving locally and running errands. So far I just used it when making long trips or driving to unfamiliar areas. I have the feature for making routes so I will start planning a little more before leaving the house to make sure I'm using the best shorter or faster route depending on the destination.

Suggestion: Forum Search Enhancement

Hi Miss Poi,

I'm wondering if we could get an enhancement of the search function for sites's forums, etc. Right now, the search results seem pretty random.
I'd like to be able to sort the results by date and/or relevance, for example (mostly by date.)


You get what you pay for (magical hard disk)

A 500GB external hard drive purchased in China for an unbelievably low price doesn't work as it is supposed to. I LOL when I saw the internal parts.

I'm sure many folks on here played with one of these in the 70's like I did. It's back !

Subject line

I am curious as to why you need to include a new subject title for each post here at the factory. If you are following along on a particular thread about the same subject why the need to add a new subject for each post?

Texas House backs plan to allow 85 mph speed limit

AUSTIN, Texas — The Texas House approved a bill that would allow the speed limit on some highways to be raised to 85 mph, which would be the highest in the nation.

AW_Root_Beer.csv problem?


Hey probably don't know what I'm doing, but here's what I found and I don't know what to do to fix it.

I downloaded this file and wondered why it didn't work.

Then I looked at the file and it looks a mess compared to other files I compared it to.

I hope someone has an older version of the file sitting around.
