    The rest pales in comparison. I am a huge fan of '60 2 door GT designs, British or European.

    My first computer IIRC was a secondhand (or third) 'Turbo' XT with a 20MB MFM drive.

    As you might know, I teach IT and was telling students about this a while ago. They laughed at the size, but said to them how I recall it being enough. Had an OS, games, word processing files, etc. Not too much space...but enough.

    Reminds me of a Sandra Bullock movie called Gravity.

    Dr Ryan Stone, an engineer, and Matt Kowalski, an astronaut, are on a space mission together. However, when they are hit by high-speed space debris, they must find a way to return to Earth.

    It takes a lot to stand out in today's crowded super/hyper/uber/mega car market, but famed F1 designer Gordon Murray has found several ways to make his upcoming T.50 supercar a true contender without bothering to chase speed or power records. In new details released today, Murray expanded on his claim that the T.50 will have the most advanced aerodynamics of any road car, with its fan-forced system that literally sucks the car down onto the road, while pushing pressurized air out the back to reduce drag.

    Personally I like the design cues from the McLaren F1 you can see on the design. The side windows, the roof, etc. Some definite family lines there.
    Side note, it is officially launched now.
