I mean, you saw them blame a throttle stop on the issues...I think that gives you a lot of incite.

Seriously. He said the throttle stop was damaging it. I could understand (maybe) if they adjusted it to keep him out of untuned cells, but its not like letting it go WOT will keep it out of lower throttle positions. I mean its like extremely basic logic. Dude has no sense.

I have a feeling it was to make the gas pedal and altered linkage work together. But the TPS calibration in MS was certainly untuned.

I saw that but thought it would be funny to leave it that way.

Interesting article.

Very interesting article. I think most of it was pretty spot on.

Wait are you seriously thinking about marrying this girl you are dating now? Were you previously seeing her before you moved out east? I just think dating less then a year and then getting married is not the smartest idea.

You know me well enough to know that I tend to project outwards into the future for all possible scenarios. I am planning to get married in much the same way that I'm planning for WPIX-TV to relocate into five different buildings.

To be certain, nothing is going to happen in 2014. My tax return for this year is going to be hilariously complex as it is, without needing to change marital status midway. I just figured I should go ahead and run the numbers for a few simplified versions of the Fed and NYS 2013 returns again, but with the new status and her income (which isn't large right now) added in, to get a baseline feeling for how TY2015 ought to be computed, and what changes I might ultimately make to my W2.

Think bench dyno at this point.

We've known each other for about 22 years.

LOL.



You wouldn't happen to be the logical, planner type of person would you Joe? I think that is pretty funny. And I'm happy for you.


Life is just a series of ones and zeros.



And BTW, Joe, I believe you are a Gen X and not a Gen Y if you study the various differences:

I hate to see things like this happen to people.. But this guy and his whole fan boy posy, turned against me, when me and 2-3 other guys were literally holding that site together on our shoulders. On top of that, when the whole MS thing went down... It was a pain in my ***.



Still sucks though, tune looked like trash.

What REALLY pissed me off was that Tim Allen didn't sell it to Rick. He would have made me admin and I would have banned them all.

But he refused to sell it to Rick (we think he was hiding from the IRS) and then he still just turned around and sold it anyways.

Man I hate that I'm not the admin at CR... would have been so lol.

It would be a much smaller site than it is currently. The ban hammer would reach a genocidal level not seen in a long time.
