Yea Andrew's looks like that too. Time to upgrade to one of the new water-cooled ones.

No work today, and it's not even bad out, just a little sleet and slush, with a chance of 1/2'' of snow tonight.

Weather unrelated, how the **** can a potassium and citrate medication be so damn expensive!!?? Just went to pick up the prescription my doctor called in for me Monday, and even after my insurance paid $100, I still owe $180! Goddamn kidney stones are expensive. My total is still adding up. Got another $350 bill a few days ago for the portion of anesthesia my insurance wouldn't cover.

It hasn't burnt-up after 30-hours, and the diaphragm is still soft.

You get any boost sag? When that bitch gets hot, we see a loss of ~3psi. Quite funny.

Nope. I out-idioted the idiotproof door locks, and locked my key in my car about 40 minutes from my nearest spare key. So I broke into my own car by unzipping the window from the outside.
Idiotproof systems rarely take into account the ingenuity of idiots.

I locked myself out of my car recently too, first time ever, with any car, and of course it was with a car with idiotproof system in place. I was distracted when the dog came up to greet me, and I forgot about the keys and stopped to pet her, and I got out and for some reason locked the doors, even though I was just going inside and coming right back out. Damn keys still in the switch! Used a coat hanger through the side window to top seal, and cranked the window down just enough to get my arm in and unlock it.

Been there, done that. Pretty easyto get a small object in the corner of the zipper and move it up enough to use a finger. Crawling into the car is the hard part. What would you have done if you had a NB glass window top that doesn't zip down? Hmmmmm
