    Quote from StalePhish

    Cars are expected to have 5 to 10 years of good performance before they start falling apart. It's pretty rare to see cars on the road (at least in the northeast USA) that are older than 15 years, and these guys are about 40 years old. I'm quite surprised that they have only 40,000 miles. My daily driver is a 2007 with 65,000 miles but I know numerous people with cars from 150,000-250,000 miles.

    Mid-engine RWD is fantastic. I've got a 1987 Pontiac Fiero for a weekend car. It's got a 2.8L V6 in front of the rear axle.

    I'm quite amazed too. My '97 Accord has 187,000ish miles on it - 2.2L 4-cylinder. Still pretty good but the transmission likes to slip from time to time. Though I guess that's what you get with an almost-20 year automatic transmission.

    And you said it. I'd love to have a "fun car" for the weekend. I've always preferred RWD, even if it isn't mid-engined, Though mid-engined is simply fantastic.

    posted a message on Where do you sit in the movie theatre?
    If the theatre is big enough to have those extra two rows on the left in right side, I'll sit there. There is typically only two seats per row on the sides, meaning I don't have to sit in between a bunch of people or have to be such a burden to everyone if I have to get up.

    Are you talking about an L-shaped desk? If so on the side

    Alrighty - if you were going to put your monitors in the corner, I would have suggested something with an angle, like this.
    I'd pick something that hides the cords/wiring well (so something with a 'backing'), but that's just me.

    I've been through the typical 'lock yourself out of your car' fiasco. Not fun and pricey to get your keys back from inside.

    not sure... does not say on posting :/

    Aw, shame. Well, the 914 will put you down the road faster than the Alfa, but they should both be really fun cars, regardless of which you choose.

    I would personally go with the 914, just because I prefer a mid-engine, RWD combo. They are similar cars - which engine is in the 914? Hopefully the flat-six.

    Would you prefer your monitors in the corner or along one of the sides?

    Build your own.
    Seriously. Figure out the dimensions and shape, draw it and mark all the dimensions, then go have somebody cut the boards for you and make the edges all pretty. Surely there are some companies that do that in your area. You can get back here with your first design and have us look it over and perhaps suggest some modifications.
    It will end up being a few times cheaper than anything you can buy premade.

    This is actually quite a good idea. With $100, I doubt you can get a decent 'L' shaped desk. You can also look at your local Goodwill or something like that. That's where I got my glass desk and leather seat both for around $70.

    posted a message on [Feature] Bumping
    Quote from cestislife
    The idea of allowing bumping is a no-no for me though, even if it has cool down. It should only be bumped if a genuine reply is there.

    Agreed. Even will a cool down, it still implies that bumping without any general information to add is okay. As far as I see in my opinion, it's not. As long as someone has significant information to add, I find a 'bump button' pointless and perhaps abusive.

    posted a message on How do you make a successful youtube channel?
    Quote from Hanji

    Man, youtube sucks.

    YouTube, I'm pretty sure, pays you 1/3 of a cent for each view. 1 view as a partner earns you 1/3 of a cent.
    A video with 1,000,000 views times the amount of 'cents' you earn per view - .0033 - will get you $3300 if my math is correct. Google has pages all about it here.

    I don't think 'they' suck at all - they actually pay very well to those who do very well.
