How do you get to work?

Eagle7 Re:Motorcycle (887 comments)

Absolutely - I ride a "push bike" to work for at least half of my commutes. And for those of us on bicycles, the "local smog" element of the motorcycle is disturbing, since we are breathing in everything they are putting out. When even a fairly modern motorcycle or scooter goes by, the amount of pollutants coming out of the tailpipe is clearly more than a car, based upon the nose & lung test.

It's a shame that his motorcycle most likely puts out more emissions than that SUV.

"Are motorcycles a less-polluting alternative to cars? No, in fact, motorcycles produce more harmful emissions per mile than a car or even a large SUV. The current federal motorcycle standard for hydrocarbon emissions is about 90 times the hydrocarbon standard for today's passenger cars."

DTV Is Coming and I'm Not Ready

Eagle7 Re:Put your money where your mouth is (376 comments)

I have searched and searched for a DVD recorder that has HDMI output that provides the true HD (720/1080) signal to the TV. Every one I have seen first down converts to 480, and then provides that signal out. If there is one out there that doesn't do this, can someone please post a link? Thanks!
