You win the interwebs!
I generally just ask "how much is this?" and see if they think it is a mistake.

Personally I think most people will opt for multiples of three when it comes to multi-monitor setups. This permits one screen to act as dead center, with the others in the wings. If you're a gamer, you want your crosshairs...
The most formal and most romantic possible way to propose is to take her to Universal Studios and pop the question right when Jaws comes out of the water.

I've seen and been involved in accidents where a chain reaction occurs because some jackass hits the last car in a line at the light and then 5 cars get smashed as a result. Also, sometimes cars don't get traction and start to slide back down hills. It can happen suddenly. If you...

And obviously, bit torrent technology is only used for the sharing of open source, publicly licensed, types of material. . . e.g. linux ISO images and other such software under licenses like GPL.

This would be a serial distribution. One page at a time, in order to each person requesting the book. A torrent splits the book up into pages as well. But instead of requesting only one page at a time from one person, a torrent requests one sort of random page from every person...
