How do y’all feel

How do y’all feel

About people parking in front of your house? I’m in the camp of if they’re not blocking the driveway or mailbox during the day, couldn’t care less. Our neighborhood FB group has blown up today with a neighbor complaint about someone parking in front of her house. Her husband is a cop and she was threatening to to block that persons car in (using the cop car I assume) and not move till they...

GF’s PC officially done

GF’s PC officially done

I had put it together with a 2400g to get things updated (turned out to be unnecessary but whatever). Had to wait for the Noctua L9a to come in since the cooler for the 3400g is too big for the case. The Noctua is actually lower than the Stealth that comes with the 2400g and cools better than either stock cooler.

Special kind of jerk

Special kind of jerk

Extra wide spaces and they still think they’re BMW is so special they need two extra large spaces. The Hilton Head sticker really sums up what kind of person they are.

It’s been about a month

So time to build another PC. This one will be a surprise for my gf. We are/were both in the old laptop situation. Mine is 7 years old. Still gets the job done but I’ve wanted to build a gaming pc for years and finally did. She’s a grad student so has a school laptop that’s 6-7 years old and a personal one in the same age range. It gets the job done except when she needs to run models it takes...

Bad news and good news

Bad news and good news

Bad news first: my car got hit in a parking lot. Didn’t think it looked too bad but I got an estimate done yesterday and it’s over $1600. The lady that hit my car doesn’t speak much English so I’m gonna have a friend do translating for me.

The good news is all my parts for my new computer finally came in and I got it put together. Took hours and several different methods to get the bios...

This configurator ran slow on my computer. Not sure if it was my internet or computer.

My tv is dying 

My tv is dying 

My nearly 11 year old 32" tv is dying, I think. The past few weeks I’ve notice diagonal static looking lines on dark backgrounds. The picture has gone crazy and then black. Not sure if it’s the 1 hdmi port acting up or the screen itself. I’ve tried 2 different hdmi cables and I’ve swapped the PS3 and Apple TV.

Any ideas on what could be happening ?

I’ve started looking at larger replacements so...

Does Diesel-gate mean no new Phaeton?

Does Diesel-gate mean no new Phaeton?

I think so or at least not by the 2018-19 timeframe suggested.

I figured the new Phaeton would flop like the last one because no one sees VW as a premium brand, especially after they pushed so hard to be a cheap brand chasing numbers instead of quality and value like the rest of the market.

Now they have this whole diesel thing to deal with marring their image. The fines and recalls will put...

Burning question....

Burning question....

So I’ve been a bad car owner. I’ve never bothered checking the oil in the Mazda between oil changes because I figured it’s a new car and there should be no need. But, between the past two oil changes I have. I didn’t check right after the oil change but I have between and leading up to and feel it’s going through oil at an alarming rate. I’m getting it changed tomorrow morning but it’s on the...

So I'm almost 12,000 miles into my Mazda3 ownership. Outside of a couple small scratches and temporarily losing my key in the seat bracketry I haven't had any issues. I was able to put in my Christmas presents yesterday: all weather mats, cargo mat, and storage shelf.

Lots of fun. Haven't really pushed it in any real sense but I haven't been disappointed.

Great mileage....

So sad

I think this used to be my car. If it is it's good and bad. If it is I'm glad its out on the road and not in a crusher after the deer I hit. However, it's a Lexus, not a 94 civic.

Finally got the time to vacuum out my car so I could put in my new all weather floor mats.

I learned you can access the frame vin number by lifting a flap under the passenger mat.
