Like the hydrogen car could solve so much crap, but oil industries and all sorts of people would loose too much money. It's stupid and selfish

You do realize it takes MORE energy to get the hydrogen into a usable form, transported, and stored in gas tanks, than you would save over gas? It would be WORSE for the environment, until almost all our electricity is hydroelectric, wind, geothermal, and other nonpolluting renewable resources.

THEN Hydrogen cars would be clean.

I always turn off my PC. Even if it will be turned back on in 5 minutes. Only takes a little bit to boot for me though...

If anyone won't because your shutdown time is too slow, move all your virtual memory to a separate partition from your windows files, it doesn't even have to be a separate hard drive just a separate partition! (This helps mostly for shutting off not for booting up.
