    You mean I wasted five minutes studying the one for what was bad about it?

    Nonsense. I'm going to keep looking.

    Going to try a third time, but I ain’t as old as I used to be.

    I used to hunt from a stand but got tired of hanging out in the breeze.  As for the squirrels, if they aren't playing in my yard I don't bother to pick up the rifle because the deer aren't going to cooperate either.  Since I hunt on my own property it's not like I lost an opportunity.  Understand completely if travel, money or time is involved in the hunt.  I am retired and pot hunt only.

    I'm pretty sure this is why God invented service stations. You don't even need to go to VW dealers. Life's too short anymore to spend it doing things you don't want to, and re-inventing the wheel every time. Let a workin' man earn a living!
    I have no problem getting my hands dirty. I actually enjoy it at times. Plus if it can save my parents $600 I'm all game. It's usually a 3-4 hour job. Except VW uses some not very common tools.

    I was a Volkswagen guy for the first decade of my driving.  With 6 kids, VW is not an option. It's a love hate relationship. To replace an alternator on one,  I had to loosen the motor mounts to jack up the engine so the alternator would have proper clearance for removal.  The alternator cost was 10x that of a previous Ford alternator I had replaced.

    Ouch. That's not fun. The Chevy Lumina was the same way with spark plugs. The best way to get to the rear spark plugs was to take a strap to the motor and remove the rear motor mounts. It sounds like VW and Chevy hired the same guys who've never picked up a wrench in their life.

    I bought a '77 VW bus my first year in Albuquerque, and it was a dream to work on.  I did have to pay $850 to have a new clutch put into it, but otherwise was trouble-free.  Sold it 5 years later for what I paid for it, $2,000 (I was PCSing to Grand Forks and wanted a real heater).  I miss that thing.

    @JohnInCarolina that 14 hour tine zone deal is quite a challenge.  Hopefully your participation and presentations are slotted around that deal.  Enjoy!
    I just gave the opening remarks Frank.  It's just after 9am there.  

    My semi-plenary talk later on today will start at 9:20pm locally here.  Safe to say that's the latest I've ever given a technical talk, anywhere. 
    Mind DM the zoom login and passwords?  Would be fun to watch.  Then we can discuss on Friday.

    I think everyone is a bit more cautious about who they let into their calls after all the recent Zoom sex-bombing and that insider job by Jeffery Toobin..... 
    I'm kind of disappointed that "Toobin It" hasn't become a thing in the parlance of our time just yet.  

    I audited a clients site recently that was complaining about some WiFi performance. I discovered that there was quite a bit of streaming traffic to "camjackers"dotcom from her husbands laptop.

    @SonVolt Very nice. I'm anxious to see what kind of food you crank out of that oven.

    Just ordered a 50lb sack of this. Apparently, from what I've gathered over at the pizza forums it's essential for true NY style pizza, with a higher protein % than King Arthur bread flour. 



    ...and a case of this. I've spotted 7/11 tomatoes in numerous pizza joints around the US, but never in a grocery store. Today I lucked up and found a local restaurant supply cash 'n carry that stocks them by the case.

    Hopefully, I will get back to posting on the forum pretty regularly, and, hopefully, making fewer folks angry in the process.  

    Peace, y'all.

    This got flagged. Can't please everyone all the time. Ok, no more trying.
    No worries Mr. Ron.  Every post I make gets flagged, and @The_Buffalo has let me stay.  In less than 150 posts I have managed 80 flags.

  • Finally started to put my Large back together after the hurricane. After taking the bands completely off I figured out that one hinge spring has been stretched too much. About to go waste my time seeing if ACE has one in stock. Also decided that I will have to talk to Ron soon, all these years and BGE is still using those cr@ppy gaskets. 
  • Well I am surprised , they had the springs for $7.74 for a pair.

    Attempting to make the brown gravy from “the last time” according to my wife. I really need to start writing things down. No clue what I put it this magic gravy last time. We talked about this briefly on a Friday night not long ago.
