Not as common as the CS, but the Style PS is about to lighten my current carry -- mostly because it's easy to unclip but keeps the pliers and scissors that I find are the most-used tools for me on a Squirt PS4. It's also possible to use small (4mm) screwdriver bits with it, wedging them into the carabiner section: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDsYphq5klg [not my video]

Graffiti and predictive typing isn't bad with a stylus, actually. Feels a lot better than constantly pecking at a solid surface.

"Not ripping to FLAC or WAV is just plain idiotic. The cost of the space is nothing compared to the time it would take to re-rip everything. In 5, 10 or 20 years," In 20 years time I'll care even less about audio quality. Meanwhile, the likelihood is high that lossless copies will be around for future generations because someone else will have cared enough to make them. 20 years ago I was mostly using computers that didn't have hard drives, but -- as far as music goes -- things have been at the 'good enough' stage for ages.

Agree that we should be encouraging automation, so that time doesn't have to be wasted on repetitive admin tasks. It's a lot easier to deal with specifying IT stuff if you have some appreciation of what's involved, and there are many improvements that would never be made without someone understanding existing solutions well enough to adapt them. Knowing the basics of plumbing is also very handy. Solutions vs code is a fair point, but it's like maths/English/science/etc... some of the basics have to be learnt by rote. Make it as fun as possible, but give people that opportunity to learn something they can build on later.

"readable" is bad, horrible English and you should be ashamed of yourself. The word you are looking for is legible. "Legible" is understood by most people here in England as the opposite of illegible, and usually used to denote lettering that's clear due to the writing or printing. It's also rarely used except to castigate handwriting. Or in short, words change (horror!) and often only one meaning carries through from the languages we steal them from.

Nice idea, Anthony!
