Strange? If 0.1 % of the objective value per sq m results in a worst case of 1 Euro per sq m that means the worst case objective value is 1,000 Euro per sq m. Seems a bit high? Recently I asked our accountant, same as yours Filippos, and our lawyer what was the objective value of our house and they ...

I'm not sure why an outage or a brownout would have any effect on a laptop? The laptop itself is running entirely on its internal battery. You can unplug the AC adapter altogether, simulating an outage, and it keeps working for an hour or more if the internal battery is fully charged. Even if the ou...

If you have the document electronically have you thought about trying Google's translation service? I've only tried it from Greek to English but it seems to be a lot better than Babel. I wouldn't want to trust it in the reverse direction. If some of it sounds a bit odd you might then be able to sort...

Warwick,

It never did Gerald any harm (yet)

Yes, but modified, because I think it scans better, and Anglicised spelling, because I usually do.

Obviously I must bow down to your greater erudition, John and Andy. Clearly all the quotations used in the thread are your own original work and the various web sites and numerous books that also happen to contain them copied them from you. My abject apologies Warwick Plagiarise, plagiarise, let no ...

Why don't you guys just put http://www.vegard.net/about/one-liners.php in your tag line and then it would save you the trouble of doing all the cut and pasting? You could just put the number of the quote you want to copy?

How the hell would I know, John. I have always ascribed to the Groucho Marx philosophy of never joining any club that would have me as a member.

Since Tellas is owned by DEH, I'm amazed that they haven't tried to role out broadband over power lines. They could use fibre optics mounted on the grid system as a backbone with power line distribution for the "last mile". Personally I am against it as I believe it increases EM pollution ...

Deliberate contamination of petrol with water has been a problem for fuel distributors for as long as I can remember. Usually it occurs in the tanker en-route from the terminal to the garage. A friend of mine, working for Shell, was researching methods of preventing this in the UK back in the 1970's...

I don't usually pick up on grammar but since John's original post fitted into the category of "nitpicking" I thought I would make an exception. Now, John, just sit in a quiet corner and say out loud all the words you posted with I before E even though they are after C. Notice anything? Tha...

I do apologize for starting a thread on a subject of which you have no obvious understanding, Fortunately some people such as Kilkis do. Therefore it is still possible to have a meaningful discussion to benefit not only myself but others with a similar interest. Don't go round accusing me of unders...
