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?

It's a fairly significant amount of glycol- you can see the puddle on the ground. I could probably hang a plastic sheet to redirect it, but that's not a good way to make friendly neighbors.

Gonna offer $220 and see where that goes.

The expensive Grainger solution:

You can use that as inspiration. We use them all the time at the hospital.

Denzel Washington takes plea deal in strangling of Aretha Franklin - Story | WTTG

Quote:
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.

Just for grins and giggles i'm going to try and decode that.

"yeah, that grainger idea .... work... redo it in a few years."

More may come to me as I look harder at it.

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.

Actual Acer design meeting:

How can we improve on the ultraportable laptop?

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.

Brilliant!





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...

Unless you're getting a rim job by Mr T, while being finger-blasted by Tom Brady, and scissoring Queen Elizabeth at the same time, how do you contain that much goad on you or your person?

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 2 cars deep, but the building's HVAC glycol system drips onto the back half, so that's essentially useless. 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.

You could. Redirect it to both rear tires and do a huge smoky burn out every morning

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.

This is Tombili, a stray that sort of "owned" a particular neighborhood in Istanbul.
Residents were taking care of him.



Unfortunately, Tombili fell sick and passed away.
Residents were heartbroken.
They put up signs that read "You'll live on in our hearts"...





Then, someone had an idea.
17000 people signed a petition. Seventeen thousand.

The municipality then agreed to commission a statue of Tombili, to memorialize the chubby cat.

Here's a clay model of the statue...




Installation with visiting dignitaries:



Grand opening ceremonies will be held soon








Another pose by the very Tombili himself, back in the day....

It looked to me like he got distracted by the car parked on the left side of the road (maybe worried it was a cop?) at 00:52->53 and messed up his setup for the turn (late brake).
