    My K70 is acting up. I always have it on the mode where the LEDs of each key light up for a second or so when I hit a key (I forget what it's called) but a lot of keys are making the key in the middle row above or below it light up dimly but those keys still light up brightly like they should when pressed. I'm confused. It's about a year old too.

    Gonna do that the first week of August. I can't be the only one who actually is looking forward to it this year. (3rd year may be a factor)

    Huh Strange.
    My PC Seems to be constantly accessing my HDD even though i'm not trying to run anything.
    Is that a bad thing?
    Is that normal for a PC to do that sometimes?

    Edit: Nevermind i was being stupid, got some Windows 7 updates e.e

    How long have you been driving? I can't even count how many times I've been cut off (usually by rental cars, cars with out of state plates, or someone driving a lifted dually pickup with far too much ego) since I've started driving. I've easily been cut off three times in the span of an hours worth of driving in Austin traffic, and I'm usually not too easy on the offender. :p I'm really glad I have my dashcam in the case that someone decides to run into me.

    I've noticed that drivers in California usually cause close calls through sheer obliviousness, while drivers in Sydney are just out to get you; people behind will speed up when you indicate to change lanes and sometimes intentionally cut you off when they go for a pass at 20km/h over the limit, among other acts.
    As a result, my horn gets very liberal use on a near daily basis. Since basically no civilian carries a gun in Sydney, I keep heavy blunt weapons in my cars in case I get threatened on the road. At the moment, the Audi has an iron steering wheel lock, and the Subaru has a full seatbelt reel and pretensioner system, both car related items that can't be classified as offensive weapons. :)

    I have no complaints about the drivers in my area. In the 2 months I've been driving, I haven't been honked at or honked at anyone a single time, and I can count the number of "wow, that person is an idiot" moments I've had on one hand. There have definitely been a few times where most people would've honked but I didn't, though. I've had one or two people drift into my lane next to me and someone pull out in front of me, but I didn't honk at them. I'm a pretty forgiving and relaxed driver. I don't understand why people are so aggressive and in a hurry on the roads.
    I've stopped using my dashcam for the most part. I never catch anything interesting because it's in the crown vic and people are on their best behavior around it.

    Even when I'm not driving the crown vic people are generally good drivers. The occurrence of an idiot is just a lot more rare when driving the crown vic.
    Its nice.

    Aluminium bodied flashlight, drivers door storage pocket, with the batteries in has a fair bit of heft for some clobbering and if questioned on why there is a flashlight in there, its a fucking flashlight...

    If your car has a spare tire then a wheel nut wrench would probably do the trick. If asked then you can say in case you get a puncture and need to change the wheel.

    All cars with spare tyres tend to have a tyre iron underneath the spare tyre, this is where it should belong and it not being there will usually arouse suspicion itself. Although I have a proper torque wrench in a tool bag in my boot, that too would do plenty of clobbering, more than the tyre iron will do (which tends to be rather lightweight and short).
