Looks like we're all suffering. I installed a new soft top on my NB today and i had to rush because chicago weather is ****. Its been raining all weekend and we got 3 hours of clear weather so in that time i had to take out the old top swap the new top on the rails and get it back on the car before it starts raining again.
One thing i fucked up was i put the head liner over the last bow instead of around it. Any ideas if I can fix that without pulling the entire top?
On Wednesday, a New York man named Denzel Washington took a plea deal for strangling his mother, whose name is Aretha Franklin.
The attack happened inside the mother’s apartment on West 93rd Street, according to the criminal complaint.
“I am informed by Aretha Franklin,” the complaint says, “that she observed the defendant place his hands around her neck and apply pressure, thereby causing redness, bruising and substantial pain to her neck.”
Washington’s plea deal means he will have to attend an anger management program, and he’s also been sentenced to a conditional discharge.
Franklin, nor Washington, are actually related to their namesakes.
Holy hell, the InScribe app for Win10 is completely ******* worthless. I swear, I wasn't deliberately trying to screw that up.
I gotta find my Android tablet. I have no idea where I left it, but I need it. This Acer is the absolute worst mobile computing device I've ever used, and I'm including my 80s vintage Casio Databank watch in that assessment.
I was concerned that maybe Joe was having a stroke.
No **** I had an episode like that a few years back. I could talk fine, no signs of stroke, but I couldn't read. I could see the letters, even tell you which letter was which, but if you asked me to pronounce the word it just wouldn't work. It lasted about twenty minutes. I walked down to the Emergency Room from my office reading every sign as I walked down there. I told the nurse at the desk what was happening and she asked if I wanted to check in - I told her that I would wait in the chair directly across from her and if I had ANY other stroke like symtoms I would immediately walk over and check in. Luckily, the issue faded away and it became a migraine of medium intensity. I have had migraines like that since (maybe two or three a year) but never with those symptoms. Diet seems to help.
Take away the user interface. And make it heavier. And awkward to hold. And reduce the battery life. And charge twice as much for it. And install an operating system whose application base is principally built on the mouse-keyboard paradigm.
I was trying to say that, yeah, I remember how the PanAm worldport terminal at LaGuardia had those all over before they tore it down, and then remembered that it was JFK, not LaGuardia, so maybe stroke after all...
Except in one regard- the treatment of the Chris Hemsworth character, Kevin. Now, I get the beefcake joke. And I even found it amusing. But try to imagine if this were the original (male) cast, who hired a beautiful but incompetent female secretary and constantly made jokes about her, lusted after her, and made it clear that her sole function in the office was to act as eye-candy. The SJW scene would have gone prompt-critical (physics joke, look it up) and demanded that Columbia Pictures be burnt to the ground and the writers tried for War Crimes.
So it's an interesting look at the double-standard which has evolved.
The difference is that men are Iron and women are U235. The double standard exists because one sex has been oppressed and objectified for so long and the other has not. Toss a neutron at Iron and nothing happens.

It's close to the stairwell, but doesn't offer any place to store a bicycle, toolbox, etc.
1. agree to redirecting the drip to the intersection of painted lines or maybe to the nearest column.
2. What if you got a large toolbox or cage that was Hard to break into and chained it between the two posts nearby? With big chains.
I offered $220 and am waiting to hear back. I could easily anchor a toolbox to the floor using JBweld on a piece of steel plate, but it's a bit of a bummer that the space is so narrow, that'll make things like brake jobs rather intimate. And I really need to fix this ******* caliper rattle...
On the Acer Win8/10 tablet front...
The device works well for the one specific thing that I obtained it for, which is to run a piece of software that connects via USB3 to a device that functions as an HDSDI vectorscope / waveform analyzer. With some Velcro on the back, it's absolutely perfect for that.
But dear sweet tap-dancing baby Jesus, this thing couldn't be worse as a general-purpose computing platform if it leaked boiling cobra venom onto your hands as you were holding it.
