Amazingly it has NVIDIA graphics for the navigation system so it can do things in 3D which is nice. I wouldn't expect Xonotic to be portable to it though!

Even though I suppose my Nvidia GPU is faster, I won't ever get a speeding ticket with mine. Tongue

You know that sort of looks like a car actually from the rear 3/4. The DVIs are the exhausts and the rear bracket right angle looks like a spoiler. Plus given the size, cost, noise and power consumption of recent gaming cards you're probably on a similar scale as a car too.

Surprisingly it'll play FLAC files but it won't play OGG Vorbis so I'll need to change that to get Xonotic running... Lol. Performance wise I'd expect it to be on a par with a net book so really not worth investigating. But it will hit 100kmh in the same time as a Lamborghini Countach so I don't care!

no, come on, you shouldn't brush your teeth too often, it's not healthy!

Ok, when then? After driving? To wash all road dirt of? Or before, to drive with clean teeth and be cool?

The Bronco was $25 per day when gas was .97/L Right now it be closer to $35. This use to be my daily driver for a few years. It would cost me around $900+ per month in gas Big Grin

THe F150 is about $30 per day 100KM to and from work but now I mostly use it when I have to pick stuff up at the whoesalers other wise I use my Toyota Yaris which is about $10 per day.

Nothing says America quite as much as a jacked up Ford Bronco with flames down the side! Big Grin I'm guessing the jacking up does hit fuel economy and it must be a bit of a handful to drive!

Did your company pay for the F150 (and the fuel)? Is it the 'economical' V6 or the V8?

I did 1000km this week, no stress and virtually all driving on the paddles. Have never been a fan of automatic gear boxes but this one is better than any manual I've driven as you can put it into a PROPER manual mode. It's got 8 gears which helps and I just find it better to keep the enginer gently turning over 99% of the time at low revs. When you want to go for an overtake just hit the left paddle a few times and it's pretty effortless. I did burn off some pushy kid out of a roundabout this afternoon as he was getting a bit too close behind and needed to be shown who was boss!

Fuel economy sucks but back then my job paid enough I didn't have to worry about it. It handles ok for a lifted truck although with the tires its a bit crazy on fresh/shallow snow, basically get the fuck out of my way I'm stopping. On deep snow it kicks ass.

No the F150 is not a company truck but I do have to use a few day per week to pick up stuff for my business. The F150 is a 5.7L its not bad on the highway if you don't drive like me Big Grin Ido write off the gas for car usage so instead of paying myself more I just use the gas write off which saves me on taxes.
