    I don't think the real issue is whether or not they killed him, it was more a matter of their attitude towards the insurgent before they did whatever they did.

    The guy was in a crashed air vehicle no? So in said air vehicle he could have easily killed many people. Also I don't blame them when they said "Is anybody going to do first aid for this ****?" and they all refused and said no. That I don't have a problem with.

    Their attitude was a little poor, and what they did may not have been justice. The logical person in my brain would have said to not kill the guy and hand him over to the correct people so he can seek true justice. But then when I hear about terrorists who are blatant hate-preachers who claim full benefits for their 14 children and preach anti-western Jihad teachings, claiming that their Human Rights have been violated, then escape from arrest dressed in a burkha, it wouldn't have taken me 2 minutes of conversation with 2 other marines before I put a bullet in his head. I don't condone what they did, but in the place they are and the situation they are in, I don't see it as murder either. In war you pick your sides. That's the end of it. He was on the wrong side.

    Thats just my point, with a straw I can only manage about 3/4 of a litre, it just makes you puke that bit quicker :)

    I cannot speak for anyone else, all I can say is in nearly 28 years of service I never witnessed any of it personally and I did tours in Iraq, Kuwait, Afghanistan, Bosnia, Kosovo, Falklands, and Rwanda.

    These holes seem a bit small for 1/4" barb tubing like 7/16" or 1/2"

    i think someone have messed specs. i havent seen plug&cool connectors bigger then 7/8 and they are sized by hose dimentions not by G1/4 thread used for screwing to other parts
    so those G1/4 has to be read as G1/4 to screw to cooler unit and 7/8 tubing at plug&cool side.
    RCoon says thanks.

    Seems like awfully tiny diamter tubing. Pump LPH isnt mentioned either -_- I can't imagine this thing performs very well unless it's a pretty powerful pump. And in every other case a custom loop probably performs way better anyway for less money.

    tube size shouldnt be problem with high flow pump on the other hand you will need extra fitings to go from 7/8 to 1/4 or 1/2 tubing.

    Well, I got my new EE phone contract as of the 11th, they sent the phone out (I ordered the HTC One 32GB in red) as well as the SIM. They also took it upon themselves to bar my old SIM so I couldn't make calls for 2 days (from the 10th to the 12th). Then when my SIM and phone arrived, they sent a HTC One Mini. Needless to say I was pissed I was paying £39 a month to get sent the wrong phone. Called them up, asked them why they sent a 16Gb Mini when I was supposed to get the One 32GB, and the woman said "What gave you the impression you were supposed to get a 32GB HTC One?". Oh I don't know, I ASKED FOR IT ON THE PHONE. Anyway, they figured out I was sent the wrong phone. Now they're asking me to send the wrong one back in a prepaid bag they will send in 3-5 days, then when that arrives at their depot, they will send the correct phone out within 3-5 days. So the first few days of my contract go badly, and I'm without the phone I ordered for a possible 10 days... Not to mention the fact I'm expecting them to send out the wrong phone again.
    I asked if I could just go to the local store for an exchange, but for some unknown reason they said no.
    This is Phones4U by the way, not EE specifically.

    I would never use EE or Orange myself.

    Best deal for me is the 3 £15 all in one, with unlimited internet, you can even tether it, and it is truly un limited.

    I stumbled across another brit Shinkueagle today, figured an addition to the imperialistic culture of TPU wouldn't hurt.

    Guys on the ropes a little here. I've had my 1TB WD black Raid 0 setup since 2009. Was thinking of swapping them out after having some glitches and since they are pretty much full

    I'm a little bit of a WD boy on my Main pc (Server has only Seagate Drives)
    So to reduce entropy as much as possible Looking at 2 of these...
    Toshiba DT01ACA200
    or
    Should i stop being a WD asshole and just buy a pair of Seagate drives....

    Trying not to pull the trigger, just if anyone has used them or similar, that'd nice to know these aren't unreliable.....

    I can vouch for Seagate with regards to single drives, but never used them in a RAID setup though.

    Just buy whatever is cheaper. I am using DT01ACA300 for my storage ("recommended" by Freedom) if you are interested, so far so good. Just keep in mind that drives either die young (within a few months), or they last for years.
