Sorry to continue the Hijack civic, I hope the re-calibrate-in-dollars suggestion in post 5 does what you want.

But speaking of clippy, I saw this and thought of Frank of course

I always found that clippy annoying

As far as Windows 7 goes its a vast improvement over Vista. It does have a few handy things over XP, but I do miss knowing exactly where to go to get something done. And with my computer having dual cores and 64 bit processing, XP wouldn't be able to take full advantage of its capabilites. I think ole Microsoft is finally starting to get close to Apple as far as user friendliness.

I think having an analog guage for the instant MPG would be cool, especially if it would adjust to put your average MPGs at the 12 o' clock position. At a glance you would be able to see if you are doing better or worse than average. Maybe even have a digital readout of iMPG if you need more than just a hint of how youre doing.

FYI, I use Linux for as much as possible, Ubuntu for desktops, and got a couple 64 bit centos boxes right next to me.
