    yes

    Actually, I haven't had any security issues with either one in a long time. Several years in fact. I am heavily guarded by other software.

    I'd just rather not have the Google folks looking over my shoulder while I'm browsing.

    I see your point now. I suppose privacy does matter. I just haven't ever let it bother me. I'm just a molecule in the ocean to them. They probably think now Suzi has something to hide I'm going to have to send the men in black after her for using firefox. 😛

    I promise if I am ever up to something dastardly I will use firefox. 🙂

    When traveling for long distances in the summertime in your automobile, tires have a tendency to overheat and you can get a blowout on the tires.

    One way to help keep this from happening is to stop and let the tires cool off and to keep your tires inflated properly. But it's also a good idea to give your tires a little shot of liquid nitrogen. It will help to cool that over heated tire wile driving. Just don't add too much.
    This one is hardly parcticable and serious dangerous.

    DON'T mess around with liquid nitrogen unless you know exactly what you are doing.

    In case of tyres the deep freeze can damage the rubber rapidly increasing teh chance of a blow-out. Plus, never touch anything which has been treated with liquid nitrogen. It will cause freeze burns on your skin. (Of course after a while it has warmed up)


    Oh and Cash, where do you get your suppyl of liquid nitrogen for your travels?

    At just about any new car dealership. Or in truck stops where the professionals do it all the time. Costco will do it for free. Actually it isn't liquid Nitrogen that should be used though. Just Nitrogen. I have used it in my vehicles for years and haven't had a blowout since. I check my tires regularly though. many people say there is little advantage but what do they know if they haven't used it. And there is no damage to the rubber. In fact air leaks out of tires. But less Nitrogen will leak out because the molecules are larger. If you want to worry about something worry about the water that is in air tanks and inside your tires that expand and turn to gas when heated. And the rust damage to wheels from the water. And what about freezing. What do you think happens to your wheel balance if water freezes inside the tires? With nitrogen you will have a smoother ride which will allow more even wear on the tires.

    Using Nitrogen instead of air is standard practice in racing.
    The point was the "liquid".

    The problem with oxygen is the power to oxygenate (make rust). The difference in diffusion coefficient through rubber is negligeable.

    Agreed it was a mistake to say liquid nitrogen I wasn't thinking.

    Here is another hint. Everyone has been separating their egg yokes from the whites wrong.

    Although it would be a blast to see a tire filled with LN2!
