the fact that he appears to have wasted a perfectly good pair of shoes

Any news on whether he got his shoes back or not ... ?   :huh:  :D

Power Supply question:
How much watts do I need?  I know I'm an electrical engineer, but I have no idea how much I need.  I currently have a PSU from PC Power & Supply, who make elite-quality units.  I want to get another one from them.

I have found this PSU calculator to be very handy for that. Make sure you check it out, especially with the amount of different components you're already considering.

Here I go again, with yet some more music from my corner of the world (and you thought it was over already ...  :P)

But this time it's a VERY different kind of music. Forget Tango, forget Folk music. This is Juana Molina (who?????  :huh:)
She's a difficult artist to classify. See what a review of one of her albums at the No Ripcord website says about her:

Juana Molina is hard to put into English terms. Maybe if Elvis Costello's daughter had grown up in exile learning music from Fergal Sharkey and Billy Bragg, been a bit-part musician round London in her teenage years, taken to being a bit-part actress in TV comedies to finance guitar lessons, and then almost accidentally become a kind of young Latin American Tracy Ullman, only then to return to music and start recording the kind of aural balm you'd expect from Mira Calix or Múm, then you'd perhaps be getting there. As it is, and as you'll read elsewhere on this site, JM is uniquely Argentine, while producing beautiful, soothing melodies that cross borders like nomads.

You can read the rest of the review here

Video clips from her are not too numerous, but I found this on YouTube:

Juana Molina - No es tan cierto (Not so true)

This is her website: , where you can listen to (and download!) 8 tracks from three different albums

She's sometimes also compared with Bjork, though she sounds more like Portishead to me (that may be due to my total lack of musical ear, though  :D). Anyway, listen to her and decide for yourself.

Aaagghhhh! My brain!

 ;D ;D

I know, if that's "very simple", I don't want to see "moderately complicated"  :D

But please notice that we can actually "cheat" and just download the template that the author has published at the bottom of the webpage, did you see it? It doesn't have great formatting, but both macros are already there, so you can add your text and formatting around it and use the button(s) he made. Just an idea.
