I heard Windows 3.1 is pretty good. Also its best if you run it on old IBM hardware and only ever use a Model M on it. There we got that all covered and I saved some people some work to post, move on.

L4 was just a ľkernel. You could run Linux on top of it, with slightly faster context switching. But then, a lot has changed to the mainline Linux kernel since then.

One thing that I thought was useful, was the ability to choose from a Big (大) or Small (小) flush. Pretty much universally available on Japanese toilets, even the low-tech ones (no electronics).

Dual flush is pretty universal everywhere, no? I know it is common in Europe, and anything being newly installed here (in Canada) is DF.

I prefer the good, old-fashioned adage: "If it's yellow, let it mellow. If it's brown, flush it down."

the problem is with people who "let the brown sit around".

We have a dual-flush low flow toilet waiting to be installed, replacing the old toilet (which is functionally fantastic).

I do not look forward to it.


aahhh. wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more.

Don't know about you guys, but it's predominant in my country. And I think a good hose to wash it down is better:

- environmentally friendly
- promotes a good wash with your fingers to make sure you are 'truly clean'
- nice soothing feeling

Although I couldn't find a bidet in HK or Taiwan washrooms.. I think US generally like toilet paper more?
