I am employee number ...

Mr_Dyqik Re:Waaaaay past 200 (342 comments)

My employer was founded at an unknown point sometime before 1096 AD, and currently has something like 25,000 members and employees.

My employee number is >2 million, but I don't think that numbering system has existed for more than 5% of the history of my organisation.

My Automobile Gets __ MPG

<10 MPG = <12.2 MPG
11-15 MPG = 13.2-18.0 MPG
16-20 MPG = 19.2-24.0 MPG
21-25 MPG = 25.2-30.0 MPG
26-30 MPG = 31.2-36.0 MPG
31-35 MPG = 37.2-42.0 MPG
>35 MPG = >42 MPG

FOSS CAD and 3D Modeling Software?

Mr_Dyqik Re:Several OSS CAD apps exist (413 comments)

So there aren't any commercial packages that you could use either. I'm pretty sure all the CAD software licences I have read explicit disclaim their accuracy.

Mr_Dyqik Re:No to Socialism!!!! (804 comments)

And during that time, the government run military prevented mexicans from invading and stealing back the land your home is built on.

Remember - if you're against socialism, you are against the military and social security for veterans. (from my latest guide on how to push right-wing buttons for fun and profit).

Mr_Dyqik The toys just get bigger and more expensive... (396 comments)

My toys include a 1977 MGB GT, a mountain bike and several guitars (one of which I've had since I was 17, so that just about counts as from childhood).
