Sounds more believable than what really happened

Liquor caught up & got the best of me. Originally planned to goto another bar to just have a beer & check out the scene... Woke up in a parking lot 2 blocks down from the bar in someone else's unlocked truck that had the window cracked open. It was raining. Found my msm in the same parking lot but it was locked. Don't remember parking or getting out of my car... or finding this unlocked truck. I ended up prying my driver side window with my hands, reaching down and unlocking my car. Found my keys still in the ignition.

Now I'm at work!

I think it's best I take a break for a while... Or at least just stick to beer.

Sounds like I need to head down to Austin.

We'll take uber home though.

Any tips on differentiating 37 from 45 degree flare? Here are some markings.

Life hack: If it leaks when mated with a 45 fitting, it's not 45.

Another life hack: Don't waste money buying expensive binoculars. Simply stand closer to the object you wish to view.

Well 1 is about 8 degrees flatter than the other one.

From all I've read JIC can come in both 37 and 45 (SAE). I don't know if I can accurately differentiate 8* with my nekked eye because the flare seating surface is only ~2mm.

Update: found out my Parker fittings accept both 37 and 45.

Early sign of wheel hub bearing failure?

Seems to only happen after the car sits over night. When I first start moving on cold start. If I turn left, I hear a noise coming from the right side. Turn right, the noise goes away

Noise goes away after driving.

At the very least, dry. Repack those suckers!

Guys.... when I aerate our lawns I need ballast on the 4' "plug" aerator to make it do its thing really good.... My solution was really simple.

My son and daughter in law live next door so when I want to "punch" the hell out of the yards I just have my daughter in law sit on a foam rubber cushion smack dab on top of the tines and .... well let's say I finally found a use for a 300# couch potato.

The best thing is that I face forward during the operation.... not much to look at for sure!

OOPS. My bad. Wrong forum.

I hate to say it, but with your luck it'll be a rear axle CV. :(

Get it up on a set of sturdy jack stands and start shaking/pulling on things. Don't kill yourself though, because that would probably suck.

Easier to replace than a hub. And not much more $$$

Any chance this is just a little "overnight rust" of the brake rotors occurring on the more exposed side of your car?

It has been raining Though I tend to notice it more after it's been cold.

I have a strong feeling it's the front passenger side wheel hub as that's where it sounds like the noise is coming from. But like I said it goes away after driving. I probably won't hear it when I leave for work today.




Getting a meteor gray ND club sounds better by the day...

The only reason I want to keep the msm is because 'racecar' and start taking it to the track someday.

Easy enough to park your car in an opposite orientation to eliminate the possibility. I always notice more rotor rust on the side on the car that faces the predominant wind/weather direction. If I back in, it flips to the other side on the car.

I'll keep that in mind.

Thing is, last time I noticed this noise was over a year ago while living at difference place

I normally don't see rust build up when dry, but definitely rust spots all around after a rain.

So I'm planning to purchase management software for my 2 computer office (notes, photos, financials, appointments, etc) and is recommended to be installed on a dedicated server running MySQL. All the installation notes that I've read state not to install on NAS (TOO SLOW). In this day and age, does this still ring true? If so, any recommendations for a good reliable server?

My mother recently purchased a nice refurbished samsung tv, but doesn't have any HD programming through her cable service....

Watching normal 480 SD Stretched TV:


Watching 'The Martian' in 1080p:


She says she can't tell the difference...
