As they say..
How can anything bigger be called a Mini?

several Minis, I'd always choose one over a Bini. Driving one always gave me a smile on my face. Working on one not so much (spare marigolds anyone for the dizzy)
Not as big as driving my Pug 205 1.9 GTI. Easier to work on, and more like a go-kart in the linear throttle response.
The Smart Roadster we own is also good fun - 700cc rear engine rear wheel drive - coupled with good all-weather tyres, makes it also fun to drive. Similar to work on to the mini - removal of the back panel usually needed.
The problem is that I as a allergic rhinitis sufferer had a twat change his vape substance on the train in front of me, and I can assure you the bloody sinuses as a result weren't the same as a coffee fume.
I agree with the idea of getting people to stop, but a vape should be treated with the same process as a cigarette - not indoors, in cars, or in public areas. Then you'll get the inconvenience of smoking and actually want to stop...
Google Geowall - uses twin projectors, two sets of polarising filters and a fairly bog-standard graphics card.
We use it regularly for teaching purposes here at UCL, and did an amazing 3D fly-through movie of Mars for the Royal Society a few years back, complete with War of the Worlds style scaffolding mounting the projectors.
Yes, needs 2 DLP projectors, but for thirty or so studnets the cost savings in the cheaper glasses is immediate.
Rsync over SSH to your remote server. You can use a free system such as rsnapshot - have your backup system offisite so your data can be considered safe in terms of local site disaster, and do locally at your secondary site backups to disks in removable caddies for archival purposes. You can even have multiple archive copies if you wish for those broken drives that inevitably happen. You can also have your last x days backup accessible live so your users can recover their data automatically without tape insertion etc.
You'll find that a lot of companies block messages sent to more than X recipients as it is often a common indicator of UCE bots mas mailing your system.
Simple really, use a mailing list manager (eg Mailman) that allows you to throttle the number of recipients sent out at a time.
And as a university IT manager, I'm fed up of the number of students whose quotas on hotmail/ other free acounts get exceeded stopping important course related information getting to the student. They get a university email account, and it should be used for this purpose.
