    Half the company here uses Mac and the other half uses PC (which often presents its own set of problems)...over here in the studio its all Mac based, back when we had an actual creative team that consisted of more than just me. Mac is generally more user friendly with Adobe and other design programs.

    The other side of the building mostly uses the same programs but they are all PC people so that's what they get.

    I really just think it boils down to what you're familiar with more than anything.

    The only Snap-On tools I own are their ratchets. I always have a need for the extendo 1/2 drive one, I have this total crap Chinese one I found laying on the floor pan of a 1985 Cadillac DeVille. Was thinking of buying the Snap On one but might see if Icon has one.

    Some programs we use here are PC only, so I have to use a remote desktop system to access them via PC on my Mac. I dunno, it's weird. But at least I'm able to do it, god forbid you ask someone on the other side to do something on a Mac and its like the world is ending.

    Yes. There is a group that is trying to get other states to adopt the policy but unfortunately, too many people are so ignorant about motorcycles and the benefits of lane sharing or filtering, that it's very difficult to get people to listen.

    These are the same people that refuse to update their OS because they are afraid of change, so they are stuck on a 5+ year old operating system and programs that get glitchier by the day. But because they have some kind of pull with the company they get to keep doing it their way. I'm starting to think some of them have blackmail material or something.

    I'm glad I don't have to deal with those kind of people. All mine are pretty security minded.

    I’d be afraid to do that, people are way too stupid and will change lanes without checking their blind spots and mirrors.

    I have never broken a Harbor Freight socket. I have broke a Stanley socket though, really stubborn bolt on a front differential.

    That's filtering at a stop light or sign. Just being able to do that is huge and I'm glad to hear they allow that in UT. Not allowed, at least yet, here in AZ. It's so much safer for motorcyclists to be able to do that instead of lining up with cars. And most motos will line up directly behind cars, which in itself is super dangerous.

    Lane splitting or sharing is while traffic is actually moving, although at slower speeds, and a motorcycle can go in between vehicles.
