I'll take a new video flying over my rough patch, if I took the gauge hood out it would be about damn near silent.

Super creepy...

I'm glad I made these things, they reduced the rattles a lot, the really big obnoxious ones that make the thing feel like it's coming apart.

I FOUND ICE CUBES ‘GOOD DAY’

CLUE 1:
“went to short dogs house, they was watching Yo MTV RAPS”

Yo MTV RAPS first aired: Aug 6th 1988

CLUE 2:
Ice Cubes single “today was a good day” released on: Feb 23 1993

CLUE 3:
”The Lakers beat the Super Sonics”

Dates between Yo MTV Raps air date AUGUST 6 1988 and the release of the single FEBRUARY 23 1993 where the Lakers beat the Super Sonics:

Nov 11 1988 114-103
Nov 30 1988 110-106
Apr 4 1989 115-97
Apr 23 1989 121-117
Jan 17 1990 100-90
Feb 28 1990 112-107
Mar 25 1990 116-94
Apr 17 1990 102-101
Jan 18 1991 105-96
Mar 24 1991 113-96
Apr 21 1991 103-100
Jan 20 1992 116-110

CLUE 4:
Dates of those Laker wins over SuperSonics where it was a clear day with no Smog:

Nov 30 1988
Apr 4 1989
Jan 18 1991
Jan 20 1992

CLUE 5:
“Got a beep from Kim, and she can **** all night”

Beepers weren’t adopted by mobile phone companies until the 1990s. Dates left where mobile beepers were availible to public:

Jan 18 1991
Jan 20 1992

CLUE 6:
Ice Cube starred in the film “Boyz in the hood” that released late Summer of 1991, but was being filmed mid-late 1990 early 1991 and Ice Cube was busy on set filming the movie Jan 18 1991 too busy to be lounging around the streets with no plans. Ladies and Gentlemen..

The ONLY day where:

Yo MTV Raps was on air
It was a clear and smogless day
Beepers were commercially sold
Lakers beat the SuperSonics
and Ice Cube had no events to attend was…

JANUARY 20 1992
National Good Day Day

Good grief, what a day. MobileIron decided to release massive simultaneous updates to the admin console and device apps. The device app updates automatically, which necessitated doing the server update mid-day which should never happen. Then the combination of the server update and the device app update broke some critical functionality which meant I spent all afternoon testing and retesting and retesting to see if we're going to make it through the weekend.

I just hope they take our support ticket seriously and get this fixed.

Well that's horseshit. Was it at least a "critical security update?"

I feel your pain though. Earlier this month I spent 6 hours unfucking one of our file servers because one of the owners children unleashed Cryptolocker 3 on us.

Got a ding on the front fender. Looks like a rock flew from the street and hit it. There is a dot thats missing paint and a small scratch but its a deep sharp dent. When it goes bellow 85f i'll give it a shot and knock it out from the inside if i can get a hammer in there.

My miata has been suffering through some problems because its my DD and I can't take it apart long enough to fix all the things that need attention and still get to work. So, I decide I'm getting an 04 RSX Type-S for a DD. Found a great deal on one two and a quarter hours away. Called yesterday at 4:15. "Yep, still here." Showed up today. "The 04 RSX? OK here are the keys. I'll go pull it around." Wait five minutes. "Uh, someone just wrote a check for it as I was walking out to get it for you. Sorry." MFFail. Wasted my 5 hours of my weekend for nothing.

You don't like reliable torquey motors?

I'm in the minority that actually likes YJs. Mine was great.

What's the best hole saw I can buy for a reasonable price, somewhere in the range of 2.5 to 3.5", which will make >5 cuts through raised floor tiles consisting of about an inch of concrete sandwiched between two pieces of steel?

I don't know much about exotic saws. Seems that there are two reasonably-priced choices; diamond-grit and carbide-grit. Both are advertized as being suitable for use with concrete, stone, porcelain, GRP, ceramic, etc. Neither specifically denotes suitability for use with metal.

Reviews of the various blades seem to tip somewhat in favor of diamond, but these reviews are all from people using them to cut brick, floor tile, etc. I have no problem paying $50 for a good diamond saw, I just need to make sure it'll do a reasonable job of getting through the steel on both sides of the tile, in addition to the concrete within it.

Good lord, are you drilling holes in a bunker? Are you cutting through rebar in a slab or are we talking steel plate? I'm more puzzled by the combination of materials you've listed than anything else.

These are raised-floor tiles of the sort you'd find in a large datacenter or a TV station. Each one is 24" square, consisting of a concrete core around 1" thick sandwiched between two pieces of sheet steel which are maybe 10-12ga. They're pretty sturdy.

This is not the exact tile we use, but it's close: Concrete Raised Access Floor System - Pro Access Floors



In the past, we've used bi-metal hole saws. On the average, we get one hole out of a 3" bi-metal saw before it's completely dulled, and I want to buy something that's going to last a little while longer. I don't need to drill a hundred holes, but if I could get 5-6 holes out of a saw I'd be happy.

Haha. Yeah, the building itself is pretty old (1929) although this floor was installed about ten years ago. It's pretty standard stuff for large server rooms and other technical facilities.

The people who build the floor tiles sell saws to cut them, but they're unreasonably expensive.
