Seeing the topic The Story of Stuff brought to mind a TV series I saw a couple of years ago:

The Secret Life of Machines



For any of you with a mechanical/electrical/electronic/engineering interest or you're just interested in how stuff works, I can recommend this TV series which is available for download here.

They cover the history of the device and then go on the replicate it using common low-tech apparatus.

Are you saying you don't trust us here?   huh

Fixed - sorry about that.  Wasn't a typo, just copy/paste from address bar.

The reason I use SSL on DC is because for reasons I haven't looked at yet I cannot attach multiple items, (or a really big one), to any posts using plain HTTP.  I get a burst of maximum upload rate then it will sit there twiddling its thumbs for ever and a day, (or until I cancel).

HTTPS is a simple workaround until I can motivate myself to find the cause, (which will be unlikely - the motivation part not the cause smiley ).

of course not :p smiley I know I can trust here
but for visitors it could give the wrong impression - I was just reporting it (more to mouser I guess) simply in case it was important - I know nothing about these things so I never know what's important Wink

He already knows, discussed back here and explained by Gothi[c] back here.  Wink


Dear visitors, please don't be put off by my laziness in changing a DC HTTPS link to a HTTP link.  You have nothing to fear, we are all honest Used Car Salesmen.
