  1. no offense dude, but that car looks dangerous. Did you use a concrete nail for the axle?

  3. Good blog post. Things i would like to add is that computer system memory has to be purchased should your computer cannot cope with everything you do with it. One can deploy two good old ram boards with 1GB each, in particular, but not one of 1GB and one having 2GB. One should check the maker’s documentation for own PC to make certain what type of ram it can take.
