While this post is a day late, I’d like to wish a happy and healthy new year to all you opponaughts out there. Y’all make up a special little corner of the internet, and I consider myself better for knowing you. Thanks for putting up with my musings on my own automotive (and doggo) shenanigans.

My actual New Year’s celebration consisted of hanging out with the dogs, doing some touch-up painting inside the house that is going on the market very soon and watching this season (so far) of the Grand Tour.

Tonight I’m having a fine sour after a trip to Spec’s, and I hope your beer may be at least as good.

DOTS, crowd funding? DOTS, crowd funding?

I guess this is one way to crowd fund. Don’t see many Corpus Chrsiti area code numbers in Las Cruces. Found in the vacant lot (that the university owns and really wants to sell to a developer) next to the best coffee shop in Southern NM. The state of the truck and towbar around here means this thing is...

Computerlopnik: The good Swedes Computerlopnik: The good Swedes

For those following my computerlopnik escapades of the last week, the new case came today. Amazon sent me a Fractal Design Define R6, with the USB-C front port and tempered glass side panel so I can enjoy staring at my future machine. I’m pretty sure I’ll have a use for a front USB-C port in the future, and I’m...
