I wound up buying an rx7 that needed some mechanical work. Tonight, I got it to stay running, but not very well. I just need to figure out what’s up with the transmission and I should have it on the road.
Rotary engines are a pain in the ass and parts are expensive.
On a happier note, the garage is getting cleaner. I should be able to pull a car in fairly soon. Getting both in would be ideal, but realistically, it’s never going to happen.
Hopefully, I can get some decent coin parting out my old car. I’m not expecting much luck there either.
with my car shitting on, me, shortly followed by it shitting on me after $250 of the obvious culprits and a $50 tow, i find myself looking for a new car.
today, at long last, i got my w2′s, making me the last person in my office to get them…..i know some sadistic bastard is laughing somewhere.
but i may have an ultimately sweet can in my future.
im lookin at a classic tbird in great shape bodywise. im hoping the drivetrain matches the body, but ill likely find out tomorrow.
im hoping between the scraps i have saved and my tax return, i can get this beast.
if i can get this car, i will happily strip my current paperweight of mods for resto work.
“WITH THE FURY OF A THOUSAND SUNS”
but once I get my car situation squared away, I can come back here with a vengeance.
I got into the project of casing and labeling all of my pc games, driver and utility cd’s. It seems ink and paper wasn’t the only thing that i wasted, but boatloads of time too.
I still have a stack to go through, but I settled on a template for the drivers and utilities, so that’ll make the rest quicker.
For what I have done, it’s nice to see what they are without pulling out a stack of paper sleeved discs and sorting thourgh them.
Why is it that most companies have foregone cases nowadays? The Orange Box, Quake 4 and even some of my Everquest expansions came in nice double sized (why? better than nothing though) cases, but it seems that this is not the norm.
A simple single dvd case as the standard would be nice. You’d have the disc, manual, maybe just shrink wrap it as-is, there’s really nothing more needed. Then, the box it comes in would be the case….nice.
