  1. Sunday funnies........

    I've already informed my wife that I'm writing a will... just so I can put this clause in it.
  2. Here it is!

    You spun the front main after 5000 miles on a rebuild? I believe I would have exercised the warranty. There is only one cause for a spun main. Lack of lubrication. Oil pump should have been checked during rebuild. Therefore, the bearing was either installed misaligned or improper clearances. I know of no other options. Unless you ran it low on oil (which is ridiculous 5000 miles in from a rebuild), I know of nothing you could have done when "driving it like you stole it" that would cause a spun main. I suppose that if you were doing an inordinate amount of cold starts, and your oil pump was minimal... perhaps you could be partially to blame, but not "working" the engine. Engines need to "work" from time to time to keep them running clean. Idling all the time can allow carbon buildup, acidity in the oil, and other issues over time. Ok... back to the regularly scheduled topic.

    Temp here was 63F Saturday. Went down to 4F last night. It would appear that winter has returned. Therefore, this commercial seems appropriate.

    Favorite Clydesdale commercial:

    OK. Not nearly exactly, but similar. Let's go with it reminded me of:

    Clean up what? It looks to me that he has some of the essentials within easy reach so he doesn't have to lug that "stuff" around. I find it funny that the vac looks nearly exactly like my old cellular bag phone I've got sitting on the end of my desk.
  7. I hate to be a nag... but you should really consider keeping Ubuntu or make some other choice for your operating system. Trying to run XP, at this point in time, is, perhaps, worse than playing Russian roulette. There is nothing secure about it. You are going to find sites and programs that will not allow you access if you are running XP. The browser you are now using is extremely unsecure. You should never even consider using those computers for anything that contains personal information. That means no banking, no online purchases, etc. You probably shouldn't even use it for email. You are now a danger to the whole World Wide Web. I know that sounds dramatic... but it is the truth.

    Congrats Tx. Oops. You specifically thanked ladies. Probably even implied that they were of the female persuasion. I feel certain that harassment is involved there somewhere and therefore you are no longer qualified. Sorry.
