    Re: Photo question

    Except the reviews talk about a lack of sharpness. This says "cheap glass" and "poor focus" to me, rather than a megapixel deficit.

    Re: Online job application

    I've noticed, through the last few years of job hunting, that the more inconsequential and low paying the job, the longer the online application process. Something in an office, doing payroll or AP?...

    I won't ruin it for others, except to say that the final five minutes or so are heartbreaking to watch.

    Re: Gulf Oil Corp.?

    Like most things in the American oil industry, it's kind of complicated. Both Chevron and BP (and Cumberland Farms) owned the rights to the Gulf name, in different markets. All three companies phased...

    Re: Who's at the top of the list now?

    I'm trying to say that there's no pat answer-you won't find it in the charts, because most people in the late Gen-X and Gen-Y generations don't base their listening habits on what's popular on the...

    Re: Fiat Cinquecento

    I finally saw one up close at the Chicago Auto Show. There's more room inside than you might think-I'm quite tall and fit just fine. Cargo space is on par with Das MINI, so fine for a week's shop for...

    Re: Need MIATA HELP!!

    These are for '70 and later MGB's but they may work for your application.

    Out of curiosity, are the seats you have tan leather? AFAICT the only U.S. market Miata with separate headrests was the...

    Are you sure you have Miata seats? You mention removable headrests and to the best of my knowledge no Miata ever had such a thing-the seats are all high backed, and often have speakers in the...

    Re: Winter driving

    Well, I live in a hilly area, and I will say that, when I have to stop at a stoplight on a hill, and it's snowy, I'd rather have front or four wheel drive rather than rear wheel drive. It gets...

    That's really the only thing I don't like about the show-the hosts are kind of bland. On the other hand, the only host of the UK version I actually like is James May-Hammond is kind of boring and...

    Re: Photography experts: b/w photo to color?

    If I were to hazard a guess:

    If it was shot on panchromatic, that plane is dark blue, maybe black, and white. I doubt it's green, unless it's particularly dark, and I doubt the light parts are...

    Re: Photography experts: b/w photo to color?

    As far as I know there is no magic software that will tell you the colors, so matching different shades of gray from known colors is the only way to do it.

    But, here's a wrinkle-was the original...

    You can't blame the networks for that, though. It's how the clients (ie, the advertisers themselves) purchase the ad time. It's not uncommon for an advertiser (particularly a large company with a...

    I'd totally buy one if I thought I'd fit in it. Same with the Mini Marcos-I really dig those cars but I doubt I fit.
