Re: Whatcha doing?

Went to BestBuy to pick through some of the leftovers. Managed to stuff a new tv in the back of the 97. 4k is nice Yes it is. I basically skipped FHD (well, the old 42" plasma did 720p, so I guess that counts). When it was time for a new one, figured I"d go to 1080p. Went and checked them out, no c...

Re: Mustang Mach E

On the drive home, I heard an interview with Hackett stating it's an SUV. A Mustang SUV.
They have officially sold out.

Re: Whatcha doing?

Put a rebuild kit in my impact gun. Rotated the tires on the wife's car. Today she comes back after leaving for work saying "there's a problem". Trac and power steering (!) lights are on. No idea why, steering is fine, internally I"m thinking "Don't tell me it's a wheel speed sensor!". Finally convi...

Rear end looks like a Honda Crosstour, side and inside looks like a Tesla.

For once I beat the gas price jump!
Filled up for 2.47/g. On the ride home it was 2.79/g.

Re: What did you do to your panther today?

Just got done smearing some special grease on all the door weatherstripping. Hopefully that'll prevent them from freezing shut.

Re: What did you do to your panther today?

After it warmed up and I could open all the doors, doused the latches with WD40. This morning I could open them all, so I guess that worked? Also discovered I have a fuel leak. Not sure exactly where from yet, tank, pump? Lines look good. Thought it was an axle seal, but nope, it's gas. Checked my b...

Eeesh, Pony! Not giving us much to look forward to! :whaaa:

Hope things have calmed down a bit. When it rains, it pours, huh?

Re: What did you do to your panther today?

Was hoping to get my brakes on over the weekend, but alas... again...that didn't happen. Also wanted to clean the interior. Weather did not cooperate. :( Did drive it through a lot of deep water over the weekend, courtesy of the sudden downpours we had. It performed flawlessly, and now the bottom of...

Re: Whatcha doing?

I had an Armada 7360DMT that I used for years, it only recently kicked the bucket. Refuses to power on. I thought about fixing it, people who have parts think they're worth their weight in gold, so that isn't happening. Now the plan is to gut it, install a Raspberry Pi, and turn it into a homebrew C...

Re: What did you do to your panther today?

It started making some noise, so put some oil in it.
Knew it'd be low since I hadn't for a few weeks, but didn't think it was that low! :oops:

Re: What did you do to your computer recently?

Welcome to the new business model! Everything is a subscription, and notice how it tries to push you to "the cloud" for everything? :chainsaw: If you don't have install disks for your old Word, download LibreOffice. You can download SMPlayer for audio/video files. It's basically a Windows port of Li...

Re: Where were you when...

Waking up for class. Heard something on the radio, didn't think much of it at first. Then clicked on the TV and realized this was big. The first plan had already hit, and had a sinking feeling something else would happen. Sadly, that was confirmed as I was making breakfast. Went to class, everybody ...

Re: Whatcha doing?

And I gotta get a shyt-ton of data ported over from my back-up... Well that's good to hear. I was just talking to someone who had a drive die, sent it off to a recovery place, they retrieved that data then asked for ~$1000. So much for that stuff. You can adjust the mouse speed in the control panel...
