    The Random Things I Learned Today Thread

    The highest number of films made in any one series is "Wong Fei Hung" at 89. Apparently he is a Chinese folk hero.

    I was stumping for James Bond, but he only scrapes in with 24; behind Godzilla (30), Charlie Chan (47) and Hopalong Cassidy (66).

    I learned that an Octopus is pretty fast on land.

    We had my brothers 40ft boat lifted out of the water and put on a hard stand to cleaned and painted with antifoul.

    In the process of removing the muscles off the hull a octopus plopped onto the ground and "ran" of the end of the dock into the water, was funny as fark.

    Nah its an older model , and they are prone to running hot ... apparently overtime this kills the GNU bond to the motherboard , and when you fire up the lappy from cold its like a I in 10 chance your display will actually turn on Until it eventually goes belly up ... I did get it happening today after about the 20th reboot ... its currently downloading essential files onto a USB stick for transfer to the laptop I am on now ... Just purchased a replicator dock off ebay so if it does fully crap out I can copy the hard drive from it 2 5" 3 5" 2 Sata 1 IDE HDD Hard Disk Drive Dock Docking Station USB HUB Reader | eBay

    Ahhh you have to love gear failure ... at least it gives you a chance to get rid off all the crap you think you need over the years but dont
