    OK so who DAS'd me as I was busy clipping a van's wing mirror with my backpack on Great Porland St this morning?
    Also one of the WNKRs and Norths lot heading East on Euston Rd this morning on some baby blue frame - Howard?

    I'll see your puny cells and raise you the 18650 cell.

    Hope District+ has two of those, I think. It lasts so long you forget the last time you charged it and goes from sensible to unsafely bright. Also has an interchangeable battery pack with some of their front lights (e.g. the now-discontinued Vision 2) which you can use with a splitter cable to power both from the same pack.

    hides the spinbox controls (the arrows).

    Not on Presto-based Opera it don't

    Also, links to updated conversations always take you to the top of the page in Opera rather than to the most recently unseen post.

    Finally, the fonts are kinda ugly in Opera on Debian Linux

    "upload a file" link does nothing in Opera when clicked, and despite accepting a file from the Gnome file manager via DnD, doesn't actually upload it.

    This is all using Opera Next:
    User-Agent: Opera/9.80 (X11; Linux x86_64; Edition Next) Presto/2.12.388 Version/12.16
    v12.16 build 1860

    Everything apart from the fonts works fine in Opera Developer, which is their new one based on Chrome, so you probably don't want to fix the site for Presto-based Opera.

    Explosions rock the Taiwanese city of Kaohsiung - looks like some kind of pipeline went pop. My cousin emigrated a few months ago and wrote up some stuff.

    BBC news has some pictures.

    So, should I use mortgage brokers or not? And what's the catch. Do they charge me?

    Get this. Read it. You'll still have questions afterwards, but they'll be different ones.
