It's really not that bad. If you do other repairs or modifications you can certainly handle this. It helps having another pair of hands though.

I helped a guy last year put a top on his car just to get the experience of it, and maybe (would be appreciated, but it's not owed if you read this Adrian) someday the guy I helped will help me when I decide to replace my own.

Car decided to become a diesel this morning. The mid pipe has loosened up and blown out the gasket that was installed... "Seems ok", just gotta take it easy.

Getting it fixed first thing in the morning along with valve cover leak and a coolant leak.

Also, finally watched "American History X". The night before that I performed whoomp there it is to a full crowd.

Pretty eventful weekend.

LOLOLOL

Watching a Citrix live webinar, presenter gets 30 seconds into the installation demonstration and then realizes he doesn't have a legitimate license key...been sitting here for 10 minutes waiting for him to find a key he can use.


EDIT: Second presenter emailed him a license key and it didn't work, presenter lets out a long sigh and says just loud enough to be heard "This is f*cking ridiculous".

It took me about 5 hours from first bolt out to last bolt in and i was stuck working in shitty chicago weather with only 2 solid hours of clear weather. That is the reason why it was so annoying. I did it by my self with no help and i did not remove any of the seats however if i had good weather i'd recommend removing one seat.

It's really convenient that, for members of a given society, we tend to have a standardized common language which allows complete strangers to efficiently communicate thoughts and ideas to one another, even without the benefit of a shared heritage and experience base.

I'm grateful for that.

**** me.

I know I live in bullshit middle America, I know this. I'm on business about at Joe P right now. Lucky me I get to listen to a wannabe SJW with 300k of loan debt preach to his professor/dad/old-timer about what is wrong with the country today's.

Poor old man is puked and so am I.

Edit* I'm 3 to 1 on Guinness with these fools. Drink yo beer.

I shouldn't have sat there all night. Not sure if my headache is from the atmosphere or the beer.

South Bend?
That's not too far from my hood.
What were you doing there, other than tipping generously?

I used to think smoking, texting, and drinking a cup off cofree while driving is impossible, until I saw a lady doing it this morning. Here's her trick: lock coffee into left elbow, lock cigarette between left index and middle fingers, clasp phone with left thumb and pinky, type with right hand, and rest your forearms at 11 & 1 on the wheel.

Seems reasonable, but only if driving a Suburban. Can substitute putting on eye makeup when done texting.

Turning off DSC/TCS livens up my Mazda3. With DSC/TCD turned off, the electronic manual shifter actually lets me shift at redline without cutting power a few rpm short of redline. Wish I would'be known this sooner and I wouldn't have bitched so much about the lack of power. It's just a case of Mazda electronically restricting fun.

No replacement announced for my Nexus 7. I am disappoint. Also unsure if I want to spend $650 on a 5" Pixel. :P

My wife would use the home. She's constantly asking me random questions that I don't know, to which I respond: "okay, google....." That, and it would replace our TV as the primary music player at home.

I was down for business. I am betting they will want me to go back eventually.

That's what I have. I usually end up closer to $30 a month.
