Seems that skilled positions are hard to get into these days. People are over qualified or something. I know quite a few people with lots of experience and education who cannot find a decent job.

You might check out Zenfolio. It targets people who are pretty serious about photography.

My wife hosts her stuff there. http://kathybresee.zenfolio.com/okavangodelta/ec83b004

With a good set of snap ring pliers, the smaller ones are a breeze. Take no time at all, I can have the bearings replaced in 2 minutes. But the compressor snap ring is a bitch. I have yet to find a pair of pliers big enough that is also strong enough to take the force. I have smaller ones that deal with the force just fine, and bigger once that bent when I tried to use them.

THE GREATEST DAY OF MY LIFE - $50 (Brandon, Ms)

Quote:
This original painting is a place I visited many years ago. This location is where my wife left me for another man. I call the plainting "PARADISE REMEMBERED". As priceless as it is, it is time for someone else to enjoy this location of such a wonderful day. I also have another masterpiece titled "TELL THE EX MOTHER N LAW WHERE TO GO". Call 601-955-5913. I will deliver to the Brandon or Pearl area.

I was looking at some wheels somebody had for sale on specmiata.com, they where white, $400, I think they where Enkei, and they looked like wheels you'd see on a WRC rally car (yes, I google'd wrc rally car wheels). There gone, and I didn't save a picture. I know it's a long shot, but does anyone happen to know what they where?

In not Enkei, there is a good chance they could be O.Z. Racing as they do a ton of rally wheels.

If someone could recommend some easy *** gallery software that rivaled imgur's drag and drop capability, I would slap that **** on one of my cray XMT LPARs in a hearbeat. I do not like FTP clients.

Agreed, but then I guess we keep posts around for reasons.

I'm on a super chill bass guitar forum, I mean super chill. You can delete posts, threads and you never get bitched at for thread resurrections. However, you cannot swear or use any fowl language at all. I was warned because I wrote, "pissed" in a paragraph for a review thread I was hosting It really is the exact opposite of MT.

Kinda, I think it had a similar amount of spokes, but they went from the rim of the wheel all the way in, and (I think) they had a ring in the middle.
I'll check out O.Z. racing too, thanks.

The OZ wheels posted above are the Superturismo WRC, the ones on my car.

The no-name wheels below are Compotive, IIRC.

Edit: Yup, Compotive TH2-1670.

The sales rep arrived with 2 boxes of Krispy Kreme donuts and it's KILLING ME. I'm trying to console myself with some dry-roasted peanuts, but it isn't working.
