Joe's post on the difference between dynos should end up in the FAQ. Best explanation I've heard so far!

Probably longer than my employer would care to know.

I think it helps to imagine the text being spoken aloud by E.B. Farnum from "Deadwood", though for some reason I can't seem to help slipping constantly back and forth between Shakespearean English, Victorian English, and King James Biblical English.

Publish that on any other miata site and I doubt anyone would notice the changes in context. It has no gangsta lingo, so that limits its skope methinks. So don't be jockin' they steez, please. I agree this to be one of the greatest posts of any car site I've ever posted to. Makes me glad to be a newbie subscriber. Now, I'll go home, re-read the FAQs, and Corky's book twice (just bought it today,) before I ever ask my first question.
Best Always

Yesterday I spent like an hour or more playing with tapestry generator, making quite the awesome comicbook of your adventures, stealing or adopting many of your lines....

And the computer ate it. Damnit damnit damnit.

And if you don't invite me along when you go tune I'll drive to your house and put a flaming paperbag on your doorstep - it won't be empty but it will be fresh.

Absolutely hilarious!! One question though, when does "his wife" enter the scene?

Sounds more like "The Comedy of Errors". May Providence guide thy search.
