Damn! :mad:
GO GET UM! :eek:

As for shows for us, heard alot about H20i (heard it is more of a party time then anything else)but I have got the one near Pittsburgh on Sept 12 and we always have a good watercooled turnout plus we got two of the fastest Watercooled cars coming. Autoxtrem and the Corrado!

I doubt we will go to FixxFest this year, really didn't do anything for me last year.

They're trying to play hardball at the property owner's office... this is about to get very bloody for them. They could reimburse me the $1795.00+interest on the escrow account my lease says they held the security deposit in at Park Avenue Bank they owe me - they refuse. To me that sounds like they want to tack on legal fees when I sue the balls off them. :banghead: They're lucky they have a woman at the office that I deal with or else I probably would have gotten real rowdy.

Yes Im alive. Typical snate diasappearing act. I have been fasting from the interwebz. Too much Pron temptation leading me to repent.

24v started acting up, radiator fans not coming on again, did this EXACTLY 1 year ago..weird eh?
no worries, ill just rebuild the entire engine when I get back this next year:p


Jason, you are quite the marine mechanic. AhoY! I sail, im sailing!

Matt Norf, awesome. If that thing has a choke on the carb try adjusting it, less sluggish response? mine was like that too, but with half choke in the thing actually rips, ok so maybe not rips but you can tell it has some sort of a powerband.

Matt, don't let Snate anywhere near that! I hear he's a chronic watcher or pronography!:rolleyes:

Tomorrow is the big day, I'll be a second term airman.

matt. that dual screen setup is baller. i had a friend in college who did that. he also ran a dual os on hist computer(vista and xp). but here is a question to you. why did you go with an ssd instead of a standard hdd? you have less memory for quite a pretty penny? just wondering, not bashing.

Speed and longevity. SSD has much faster read/write speeds. So I install just the OS and programs on that drive so it boots and loads programs extremely fast. Files are stored on my file server and linked to over the network via Win7's libraries. That is also much faster file access, b/c gigabit LAN can pull data faster than a sata connection on an internal HDD. Also, SSD have a service life of around 2,000,000 hrs.(228 yrs), so it shouldnt fault anytime soon.

I can honestly say that I did cannot comprehend anything you just said.

Snate - words from the ole guy....mind of matter. some Bruce Lee shiz I learned. It's like when I smash my hand with a hammer or something...my body is thinking "damn this stings." You gotta reprogram your brain to think..."is that all you got?" Kinda heavy for 8am in the morning:cool:

I'm off to my final. Cross your fingers for me, say a prayer, raise a glass, do what ya'll do.

TGIF,

Jason

Word, I will swing by tomorrow if we don't have to work. I've got multiple plans for that axle and it's parts..

No they don't have my ass for 20 - 8.5 so far. I'm most likely going to finish college in the next 5 yrs or get close enough that I'm not depending on the MGIB entirely for income. :thumbup:

This is what I live for.
Not a MINUTE has passed since my last duty day that I have regretted my decision. I don't regret enlisting and sure as hell don't regret separating.

Reserves is great cause it gives you 10% everywhere and you only have to do it 1 weekend a month/2weeks a year.

Matt Nurf - swing by tomorrow if you get a chance. I gotta show you Spare Parts:thumbup:
