1.0 out of 5 stars Lowest quality socks possible, June 6, 2012
The only stretchy parts of these socks are the tops with elastic. The rest of the body of the sock is just a big terrycloth bag with no elastic at all. After one washing all of the "soft" inside part of the terry is hard and uncomfortable. I had 6 pairs of Hanes Fit that I bought in the store that I was trying to get more of. These definitely aren't them. If I hadn't washed them already they'd be going back. As it is will use some for staining wood.

4.0 out of 5 stars Assembled easy, January 3, 2012
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:2.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've seen some reviews that say it's hard to assemble. I'd agree if I didn't read all of the steps to see what was coming next. It's just molded plastic, so the tolerances aren't super tight.

The back axle and the brake lever are hard to install if you put in all of the other screwed-down pieces first. Put all of the pieces that are supposed to go on the axle and brake level first so that it's easy to get the axle through the holes, then do the screws. Not in the order that the instructions show.

We got it for my son who is 3.5 years old and 40 inches tall. He couldn't reach the pedals. I put 1x3 blocks on the pedals to turn them into big squares and moved the seat as far as it would go forward by drilling new holes 2 inches in front of the closest ones that they provide and he can just barely reach them with my blocks on them. If you're kid is around 40 inches or less I'd advise getting the smaller model which is also sold on amazon and wait until they're bigger to get this Big Wheel. I think it won't fit a kid until at least 46 inches in height. At age five or so he or she will still have plenty of time to enjoy this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars go from nearly impossible to nearly easy, April 5, 2004
If someone is paying you to make their Windows and Linux machines play nice with each other, this book will make it easy enough that you may feel guilty for taking their money.
This book has almost every keystroke you need to type to get a Samba system doing what you need it to do. As someone who frequently gets frustrated trying to make useful configuration files by reading the documentation I appreciate the fact that every scenario he describes in the book comes with a complete set of configuration files which implement the scenario. Even if your situation isn't covered exactly in the book you will find that the examples here a great starting point that you can modify to do what you want.
For example, using this book (and the online references it mentions) in an afternoon I was able to go from a new RedHat 9 machine with no Samba or LDAP installed to a system which was a member of a Win2k3 Active Directory domain, allowed local login using Windows AD credentials and kerberos, used full Windows ACLs for the domain user files on the Linux machine, and unified the Windows SID->Linux UID/GID mapping by installing an LDAP backend to store the ID mapping for consistent numbering across multiple Linux machines. There were some quirks along the way, like setting up the LDAP schemas and initializing the database, and compiling ACL support into the kernel (RedHat 9 doesn't include it by default), but in each case the book pointed to an online resource where the tools could be downloaded.
Very cool to go from (from my point of view) nearly impossible to nearly easy in just one book.
