I've never of the use in the final quote (Pantyhose are so expensive anymore). Can anyone verify this use?

comment “Hardware-counter-based tools” or “hardware-counter based tools”?
I'm afraid I find Raven's and Doug's answers far more plausible.

So why did so many upvote @Peter's comment without deeming his answer worthy of such?

comment Why does “is” replace “has”?
@Rhodri all I know is that when I say this song has been written by... and this song's written by... they sound very different (there is enough space that the 'as sounds like a separate word)

I may be mistaken here, but would you not say hardware-based tool or counter-based tool? Besides, in the article you and the OP provided hardware counter does not have a dash.

comment Standard format for phone numbers?
@MT_Head I work for a company that does business cards and letterheads (in the US). The standard we see most often is 000.000.0000 (there's no need for the 1 at the beginning, as any person dialing would know whether or not they should use it). Feel free to add this to your answer.
