Just had a nasty hailstorm hit Jackson. Hail up to the size of baseballs.

They claim they'll fix it (for free), but I also need a muffler and inspection. I fully expect they'll bend me over the counter for whatever crap they can.

I've bought two vehicles from them in the past. Tomorrow (or whenever they get it done) will determine whether I continue to do business with this particular dealership in the future.
Tomorrow will determine this ... why? Sounds like the determining has already been done. Just move on.

Good lord, those are big enough to cause property damage to permanent structures.

For the last 6 months I've been told my job is in jeapardy for no good reason other than politics. For the last two months I've been given a verbal "you're going to get a 2-week lay-off notice tomorrow" that never came then management changes their mind.

I don't know how much more of this I can handle before I go totally insane. Is this something I should learn to deal with or is it a little too dramatic?

Kill a manager. Not your own. It will cut costs.

Maybe you should transition into the higher paying IT job doing that Access database **** that you already designed and work with daily that is currently above your pay grade.

My god damn Lenovo X220 just went **** up, no bios post when I went to start it for absolutely no damn reason. Lenovo EZ-Serv Warranty does not expire till 11/2014 so Lenovo gets to fix it but now I'm without my work laptop for the week

I returned my Lenovo T400S something like 6-8 times while it was still under warranty for various issues. The X220 has been solid since purchased in 11/2011 but now I'm freaking out. I really REALLY miss the honest-to-god IBM built T61 and X60

So for the past couple of days I've been getting emails from a saleswoman at a dealer I contacted about 6 months back. I requested info on a certain vehicle they had advertised. Never got the info. Today, after learning that my Jeep is a bigger pile of crap than I had known, I get another email. What? More spam?

Oh, and If I am to spend thousands of dollars at your place of business, I expect to be addressed as Mr. Leete. You can get all chummy later, but your pseudo friendliness just makes me more uncooperative and irritable than usual.

Here is my reply:

Several months ago I requested very specific information on a particular vehicle you had advertised. 2 day later, the sales manager sent me a form letter espousing the benefits of your dealership. He neglected to provide the information requested. No salesperson ever followed up, and I never received the information I had requested.

Now, months later, you spam me. Am I supposed to consider this good service? Yes, I happen to be in the market for another vehicle. I doubt my purchase will be from you.

My new hobby:

got a Cannondale mountain bike frame with road tires for cruising pits and picking-up dudes.

reinstalling the shoddy wiring of my LC-1 in my supra. I am running of the stock ECU; should I use the stock o2 sensor signal for narrowband or use the emulation wire? I am redoing everything just because I hate not knowing what other people did.

I will eventually have a standalone but the stock ecu is going to have to cut it for now, but it is a turbo ecu.

If you leave the stock narrowband attached to the ECU, that gives you the ability to cross-reference them against each other. When the car is in closed loop and running stoich, and the LC-1 is displaying around 14.7, you know they're both good. If you start getting a discrepancy you know to re-calibrate the LC-1 or to replace your narrowband.

So I'd vote for both, that's how I'm running mine.

Can I use TS on my laptop for two completely different ECUs?

I mean, is the ini file specific to TS, or the project you open with TS?

each project has its own ini.

example: my desktop has 25 projects ranging from ms3's to MS1's

just make sure to open the correct project before connecting to the ecu
