  1. Pedant/OCD/Autistic Alert....... Pretty well "anything" would be easy to use ONCE it's been set up....... It's the setting up that provides the challenge.... Plug & Play - doesn't mean "Switch on (plug in/power up) a stand-alone device and you are ready to go....." Plug and Play means you can swap/change various peripherals/internal/external equipment (on some form of "computer") which will "automatically" configure so that you don't need to have technical knowledge in order to set up for use... "In the old days" even plugging in something as simple as a keyboard or a printer required the "configuration" of the peripheral and/or the computer before it would work (sometimes "physical" switches/connections and/or software settings) sometime even the physical installation (and config) of an additional "card" to even give you a place/way to plug it in......... Nowadays such stuff as "Windows" etc has many (many, many) "device drivers" built in - so that all you need to do is (literally) plug the new kit in and it will work...... (and in the background it will even sort out most conflicts with existing kit)... When I were a lad - I remember sticking staples into connectors (to join specific terminals) on "Expansion Cards" that then needed to be fitted into the (relevant) expansion slot of the CPU..... and manually editing "driver files" in order to get printers & keyboards to work!!!
  2. As a bit of fun (inspired by DFK's questions thread - and a similar thread on another forum). A Word Associations thread. Rules: 1) Quote previous post/word 2) Your word has a link to previous word (*) 3) Different poster each post (don't just post an uninterrupted string of words) This could go on............... * the link can be as tenuous as you like :-) Examples: Green ==> Grass ==> Rye ==> Whiskey...... all pretty obvious/direct Green ==> Bean ==> Flick ==> Subuteo.... "less" direct If you have a "target" (punchline) word you are aiming towards - a "(kerching)" or "(Boom-tish)" when you hit it is fine!! I'll start:
