New NB has a clunk from the front end. Gets bad at low speeds and really bad when I'm backing in the garage with the wheel turned.

Time for ball joints? If so, anything special that MT recommends?

Only had time for the driver's side, but I didn't see anything loose off the bat. Jiggled things around and couldn't replicate the sound....hmm

The end link is busted. I have a video that explains better, but the video up-loader on this site is pure aids. Why does it hate mp4???

Edit: converted to mov and still won't work....

My son's FTC Robotics team had their first qualifier match this weekend. Our middle school (7th & 8th grade) kids beat out teams of high school kids, with years of experience. We crushed them in qualifications, and then went on to take the final.

I was awestruck. Never thought we'd make it past mid field, with some of the impressive robots there. But my drivers worked together like a Swiss watch to decimate the competition.

Launched a few days ago, CryptoKitties is essentially like an digital version of Pokemon cards but based on the Ethereum blockchain. And like most viral sensations that catch on in the tech world, it’s blowing up fast.

It's a good thing I only moderate MT's FB group. Some of these other miat groups may give you an aneurysm.

Wish I was in front of a computer more...I miss regularly posting in here and it doesn't feel like I've been on here for 10 years, but such is life....errrr......work environment at times.

Speaking of work, I find humor in that while in Portland, a place that constantly preaches to "buy local" and brags about giving big companies a MFR, I worked for a massively huge company.....and upon moving to Charlotte I now work at a tiny privately-owned business. The new job is nice and hands-on though.....running production of a proprietary plastic-weld material filling/packaging station using a custom designed tool. They seems to be growing decently and I hope they follow thru on their promise of pay once my probationary period is up (though it's obvious by the owners reaction that he has an employee he needs to hold onto).

Nope. The current issue is companies being unwilling to pay employees for their experience. I work for the 2nd largest software/IT company IN THE WORLD..../clarkson. (But I actually do).

I get messages all the time for job offers through Monster, LinkedIN, etc. "Do you want to do Technical Writing for these people at $25/hr?" That's why you have to ignore people like Scott and his anti-government rantings (as he collects a paycheck from the Feds).

And I'll keep my benefits that allow me to do things like put my girlfriend on my insurance without being married so she can have access to what I do for super cheap.

Last week I flew home for an award ceremony, was supposed to fly back to the UK tonight. 2" of snow and my flight got cancelled, so I'll be spending two more days here at least.

BWHAHAHAHA YOU'RE FUCKED

edit after my initial laughter: Congrats. Seriously it's not as bad as it initially is after the first few years.

In for priority readjustment.

You finally slipped one past the goalie!
Congratulations?
You'll be great at it, I'm sure.
