Even if he was not scared, why did you pick a fat one?

Do i need to pull the engine to do an oil pump on a BP? I don't want to, but I think my relief is getting hung up.

Yes you need to pull the engine.


Theoretically you can just lift up the engine off the frame with a hoist and then remove the oil pan, fix pump, reinstall oil pan upside down perfectly. I think the amount of effort to do that is far more then just pulling the engine, fixing pump, then dropping it back in.

Oh, sure. Accuse the guy who has a reputation for extreme sci-fi geekery. That would fit quite neatly into your little plan, wouldn't it?

Hokey religions and ancient forum titles are no match for a good ban-hammer at your side.

Why, just because I'm a giant chicken dressed like Boba Fett? I'll bet all giant chickens dressed like Boba Fett look alike to you.

You, sir, are a racist.

I know that feel bro.

Software or firmware? Things get a little harder when you don't (by default) have spinlocks or semaphores since, you know, no multitasking .

Both.

Software running under WinCE Embedded on an ARM9, communicating bidirectionally via SSI to 18 Xilinx FPGAs, and interacting with several other similar devices in a distributed-recruitment environment via a combination of TCP and UDP (multicast) over Ethernet, in addition to the archaic OC3-based TDM network that we are still married to.

It's a ******* complex system, is what it is.

The FPGAs are doing their job. That part of the design is about 8 years old, and quite thoroughly debugged. (Yes, I know- famous last words.) I'm confident that this just is a textbook example of a race condition in a distributed, multithreaded software environment where dependencies exist not merely within the local system, but across a network of many devices which, for all intents and purposes, function asynchronously. And like all great race conditions throughout history, it's proving to be a real bitch to reproduce and isolate in the lab. On average, it occurs about once every three months in the field, in live systems consisting of 20-30 nodes, operating continuously 24/7.

Yes, what is going to be even sadder is when you realize that to get the TV you want you will have to wait in line for 2-3 hours.

I thought Friday was Cheap TV Day?


I learned my lesson back in 2003 when I lived just north of Cincinnati. I was driving along on the Day After, not even realizing what day it was, and I missed the turn-in to the place I needed to go. "No problem," I said to myself. "I'll just turn into the parking lot of this mall here and whip right around."

Nearly an hour later, I was finally out of the parking lot and turned around. It would have been faster for me to get onto I-71, drive all the way down to Kentucky, and turn around there.

I now avoid retail establishments on African-American Friday.

I actually went up to HF today to pick up a tool chest. It is on sale on Friday for $150, normal price is $199. I used a 15% off coupon and it came out to about $180 out the door for the chest today. It was honestly worth the $30 to not have to try to get it Friday.

Thursday is the new Friday.

waiting for 2-3 hours is fine. Doors open at 8 p.m., and the sale price for it is only between 10-11 p.m. so we'll see how it goes. i have no life anyways, you know this, and I'll be on a lull from all the food anywayz. For $30 I wouldn't do it, but for $300 off something I was about to buy 2 weeks ago anyways...I'll give it a shot

It is waiting 2-3 hours in line at Walmart on one of the busiest shopping days of the year with everyone in society that I know you hate. $300 is not worth dealing with Walmart in the next 3 days.
