    So I am driving back in the night and the check engine light comes on....and based on the behavior of the car it is probably another ignition coil....So far it would make the 4th bad ignition coil. I have replaced three before. On Monday I plan to get the one bad one fixed and am probably going to trade this damn piece of junk in. I am so mad at Toyota because apparently it is a problem with this particular model but they will only fix one bad one at a time rather than replacing all 6 ignition coils....sorry for the rant...long story short I had to rent a car for the weekend trip, there goes some extra money down the drain on top of the cost to fix the bad coil on Monday...grrrrr...

    I wonder what it's like getting a car as a present.... or anything of that level of value.

    At work I would like to have one or two more displays. The two I have are not enough. :/
    The guy sitting next to me has 4 monitors, all of them 24"!!

    Good luck with the car issues. I hope you either get them sorted or get a more reliable car!

    I wouldn't mind a car but our Swiss friend might want to chime in....I wouldn't mind a Vacheron Constantin wristwatch either:-)

    That really sucks. I've been reasonably lucky with cars lately. Even our cheap used one we bought here in the UK has been pretty good. Only some minor issues. We're planning on getting a newer one in the near future as the car doesn't really suit us but it does the job. :)

    I just ordered a radioactive labeled molecule for 600 Swiss Francs. Science is expensive. It's twice the price of my new screen, and it has a much shorter half-life... I hope ;-)

    But I feel very motivated right now. Not for what I have to do today, it's mostly just doing tedious standard lab work, but I have planned some nice experiments ahead.

    Thanks, I am eyeing a slightly different Toyota with double the gas mileage of this guzzler:-) I am pretty sure the dealer is asleep right now but I sent in an email, so likely they will call me around 9AM local time.

    The most expensive thing I've got was my watch. I got it for my 20th birthday, as a last (big) gift from my parents.

    I wear it every day since almost 10 years.

    The speakers are wonderful on the HTC one by the way. The worst part about the phone is the camera. I know megapixels aren't everything, and 1 Ultrapixel is 4MP, but it is still quite awful.

    Thanks it was the main area I was interested in the device.

    The camera seems to be the worst out there, ultrapixels will properly not be on the next version of the one.

    I have a 24" Dell. It's more than sufficient for what I'm doing at the lab. At home I always have 2 screens, I am just used to it.

    The trick is to buy a slightly used car from a luxury car dealership. For instance I am eyeing a Toyota Camry Hybrid. New ones are about $26,000 + tax etc. I found one that is 2 years old with 29,000 miles at a Mercedes Benz dealership for $20,000. That is a nice chunk of change lower....Toyota dealers want about $23,000 for the same car!

    My older Toyota should get about $13,000 in trade-in. So I am hoping I get the newer car for about $7,000 + tax etc.With the money I expect to save in gas or petrol I will recover the difference in about 4 years of ownership, long before the loan is paid off:-))

    We're thinking of a used BMW or Audi. Not sure what yet. It will probably be around 5-7,000 for it.
