Spitfire


Alright, well since I missed my Monday update I was going to surprise everybody with a Tuesday one early this morning. However, for some reason or another I was having problems getting my SQL Client to establish a connection, so I just gave up...

Biggest news right now, the Supra is dead. Yeah, my flashy little sports car fried itself late Saturday night when I managed to drive it for a long time with very, very little oil. The problem? Leaking valve cover gaskets. I knew they were leaking and, in fact, I was planning on having them changed the next morning which would have averted the entire problem, but instead I neglected to check the oil on Saturday (assuming it would be alright as it had never really leaked that fast at all), and with my stereo on most the night also didn't notice the knocking in the engine until it was too late. Needless to say I'm pretty pissed off, its likely going to need all new rod a main bearings, and the crank itself is going to need grounding or replacing. Cost? With a mechanic friend of the family doing the work I hope to keep it under $2500, but could easily be more. Sure feels like a kick in the nuts to me! Donations are welcome.

Blue4130 sent me the picture to the left of an actual candy dispenser (sold at WalMart!) that actually 'craps' out brown colored candies for you. It even says it has moooooving parts :). Click on the picture for a larger copy.

Miss Jay B's old tech support calls? Well you can stop sulking because once again Blue4130 has come to your rescue with a link to some hilarious tech support calls. My personal favorite is the guy who phones Apple for software support. Damn that guy gets really worked up! I have to say I've never come across a situation THAT bad before.

Speaking of the office, has anyone caught that new Dilbert cartoon? I saw it the other day and thought it was pretty good. The comics are still better though...

Haven't had a video on here for awhile, so here ya go...the video of Randy Johnson pitching a fastball which managed to kill a dove in mid-flight. Amazingly enough, this isn't the first time this has happened...you can read more about it here.

Lastly, Doctor Razor sent me a link to some fun flash videos called "StoneTrek". Check them out also.

By for now, keep checking back for exiting future updates!
