Java master Bawan and a young monk in his charge were walking down a road, when they came upon an emissary of the Emperor.

After the usual greetings were exchanged, the emissary turned to Bawan and with disdain asked, “Why does your monk not groom himself according to the imperial edicts of professional attire? His face is unshaven, his footwear unforgiveably gaudy, and his robes are made of cheap cotton with a humorous slogan adorning the back. This is disrespectful to you in the extreme! Why do you tolerate it?”

In a haughty voice, Bawan replied, “This is not some lowly bead-pusher employed by a counting house, nor some tenth rank scribe in the Grand Bureaucracy! This is a monk of the Temple of the Morning Brass Gong, who practices the glorious arts of Java, C, and PHP; of Python and Perl; Bourne shell and Korn shell; SQL, JPL, XML, CSS3 and Javascript too. He can—with the merest flickering of his fingers on a keyboard—summon entire websites into existence, wherein horses and armor befitting the Emperor’s most august regiments may be purchased with two-day shipping guaranteed. He has demonstrated proficiency in both debugging and re-bugging: the yin and yang around which all blessed commerce revolves! He and his fellows cannot and will not be held to our generation’s trivial ideals of personal hygiene. The monks of his Temple are a breed apart!

Thus chastened, the emissary bowed coldly and continued on his way.

When the fellow was out of earshot, the young monk smirked at Bawan, saying, “That emissary was most assuredly an idiot, to need such things explained to him in this day and age.”

Bawan cast an eye over the monk’s stubbled cheek and irreverent garments. Without warning the master swung his staff hard into the back of the monk’s skull, killing him on the spot.

“I, too, am a breed apart,” said Bawan thoughtfully.

I like to think that Hustler has a special affliction called Internet Tourrettes.

Assume that I go into a competent auto A/C service shop, and say "Here is a 1990 vehicle originally equipped with an R-12 air-conditioning system. Several years ago, it was indifferently converted to R-134a by the use of a consumer-grade kit. A substantial quantity of the refrigerant has leaked out, and I would like for you to recharge the system without performing any additional service or repair."

How much would a person reasonably expect to pay for this service, and would that person be better off simply buying a can of R-134a with integrated low-side hose and gauge at the FLAPS and using the cheap little gauge built into the can to meter out refrigerant into the system without prior evacuation or regard for precise measurement of lubricants or actual system fill quantity?

I've always just bought the can. Three separate cars, no problems.

I think I heard somewhere that they may be "required" to test for leaks before they can recharge it. Because California. I would expect you to bring extra reproductive components to said refill appointment if that were the case.

To be honest, I'm embarrassed to even be contemplating this. I have only ever owned one car with (working) A/C in my whole life, and that's when I lived in Ohio. But it's possible that I may be moving to an area in which it occasionally rains, and I've become spoiled by driving rental cars in the rain which have a functional windshield defogger.

I know that's the case with R-12, and I think it may be EPA rather than CARB. Not familiar with the R-134a regs.

OTOH, I do have several cans of genuine R-12 still sitting around if anybody wants them.

Because supraforums is like the m.net of supras, and refuse to even give me a simple answer; do you gays think I can bypass my CEL for "stock o2 heater failure" (because im using the wideband) by soldering some high ohm ceramic resistors wired directly to the ECUs heater circuit?

My car recently developed the 7mgte code 21 which is o2 heater circuit/signal failure; I and I personally know its not the signal since its connected to the narrowband wire directly from my wideband and the car runs absolutely FANTASTIC.

I just wanted to know if you gays ever did a stock o2 heater bypass for other vehicles.

Too much foam in the beer bong, any advice? We removed the valve. 36 rake of bud light, I'd have gotten natty but drinking buddies are little girls.

So I'm stuck in Chicago thanks to a failed fuel pump.

Found a new one, paid out the *** for it, and swapped it in. While I was trying to connect the electrical from pump->tank, I broke the connector. Anyone have this happen? Am I fucked till I get to a dealer on Monday?

Pics at the top because I can't post good from my phone.

Maybe I'm failing to completely grasp the scope of the problem, but I can't imagine how some combination of a soldering iron, some solder, and the broken pieces could fail to produce a result which is comparable to success.

I mean, obviously if you screw it up then the car will explode and kill you, and that would be highly dissimilar to success. But if not...

Actually, I'm probably incurring some liability by even suggesting this from a position of assumed authority. Don't try to repair this with a soldering iron. It will almost certainly explode and kill you.

Lol you are in luck, I don't have one.

Looks like I can get a ride back to Indy, so I'll have a few days to get the parts before I drive back up and fix it.
