My 306 DT used to burn its headlights.
I moved away from Peugeot H7 bulbs (Philips) and replaced them with Osram bulbs.
Sorta halved the replacement frequency.

One of the few things I actively dislike about Britain (along with petty theft being treated as a sport) is what they do to tea. Shoulda never let it out of China.

Well, OF COURSE Linux supports CUDA. Where else would you use it? The idea of trying to do any serious compute-intensive simulation on Windoze makes me shudder... Sort of like trying to hypermile a Hummer, you know? (And that's basically what I do for a living :-))

Today's annoyance - there is a 'park and ride' bus stop on my route to work - don't get excited it doesn't work for me - and the entrance has traffic lights on it. These sensibly have detectors so the lights only change when someone wants in or out. The bad bit is that a butterfly expelling excess gas in Brazil is enough to set these sensors off. So we all stop and watch as nothing pulls out.

What is worse is that the detectors don't let the lights change back until they think everything is clear. Another butterfly parps and we wait longer - so I can't even time the light.

This is in Midlothian in Scotland. The only place that has a bus lane so short that a bus could not physically park in it.

Nnngaaa.

I enjoy coffee in milk, and I love tea of all sorts, Earl Grey is one of my favorites. (or is that favourites?) Anyway, I fear tea and milk is where no american has gone before.

Another of my big time favorites is Cosntant Comment. To me it is so sweet it needs no sugar, contrary to what my missus has to say about it.

Sounds like a man seeking favour with his wife the day before Valentines day for certain.

Not that I can blame you.

I suspect the national disposition of the bulb manufacturer may be coming into play. They get hit with a whiff of bad voltage and scream "we surrender!"

Might need a few Yankee and Brit bulbs to help them out

People who speed past a line of cars entering a freeway, and last minute try to jump into the line before the onramp. One of the things I missed about big vehicles was being able to say "NO" by nudging closer to the car you're following. People are braver when I drove the CRX or Miata, dove right in. Not so with the GC or CST10. A quick dab of V8 and hey! no room anymore!

Beyond that, I'm a very nice person to merging cars.
