    LeVeL's UK trip 2019

    As far as shifting with the “wrong” hand goes, its not that big of a challenge. At least for me, it took about 5 minutes in a city enviroment to get comfortable enough with it and another 5 minutes for it to become practically 2nd nature. I’d imagine remembering which side of the road to aim for...

    Rental Car Roulette

    Its not a Camaro. Challengers never had visibility issues for me.

    Rental Car Roulette

    Won roulette last night. Selection in the Hertz President's Circle zone was pretty decent. Couple of convertible Camaros, a few Caddy CTSs, a selection of Intinitis (QX30, QX50, Q50), a Dodge Challenger STX, a Chysler 300S, but I picked this: One of two Challenger R/Ts available. Picked this...

    Random Thoughts... [Automotive Edition]

    FYI, look at city center Sixt locations rather than airport locations, its usually significantly cheaper.

    Mars rover Opportunity - Mission status: Complete

    Hmmm, I know Voyager uses thermoelectric generators for power way out in deep space. I guess that would've been overkill for such a short original mission duration to include on Opportunity.

    Mars rover Opportunity - Mission status: Complete

    Seeing as how future wind patters are unpredictable and there is still chance that the solar panels may be blown clean enough to generate power eventually, why not set up and automated process to send recovery commands once a week or so.

    Random Thoughts....

    Just got a call back from them. 25 and a half hours after I first called them. Missed the call again, but they left a voice message leading off with "sorry I wasn't able to get in touch with you today, feel free to give us a call back at your earliest convenience." BITCH YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO GET...

    The Music Thread

    Just came across Amaranthe via my Youtube recommended videos..... Probably because Minniva just dropped a cover on Friday. Haven't listened to anything else yet, but I'm not so sure about this. Its like metal meets hip hop (at least thats what the vocals in this song remind me of) and I don't...

    Random Thoughts....

    Anyone else find it interesting how its easier to get customer support via Twitter these days than going through traditional support channels (phone, email, chat)? A service I use just overcharged me by $100 for my 2019 renewal for whatever reason. Tried to call them on Friday afternoon, 50...

    Rental Car Roulette

    Meanwhile I had a Ford Ecosport Titanium with the naturally aspirated 2.0L for my ski weekend in Colorado. For political reasons, probably shouldn't elaborate, but holy shit is it bad.

    Random Thoughts... [Automotive Edition] $10k cheaper than the next cheapest one I've seen. I'm tempted to go test drive it.

    The "Things that annoy me" thread

    That's the way it goes pretty much everywhere. I took this photo of a crew doing something similar near my work. And the result of their fine work... Fast forward a year, and the road is in worse condition than it was. I'll try to get a photo later.

    Airplane or airport experiences...

    I’ve seen multiple definitions, but I’m referring to itineraries that require multiple tickets. Could either be one airline to get to Paris and a different one to get back, which carries no risk, or the riskier option is one airline to a layover and a different airline from there. After that...

    Nitrous Blue 2018 Focus RS

    That orange warning light. I see you pressed the fun button. Have you tried drift mode yet? Also RS certificates are now available if you're interested in that kind of thing...

    An Aussie in Texas, March 14-24, 2019.

    Still looking for flights, but trends are looking unfavorable. Shame too because I'm seeing DTW-DFW flights for peanuts on random weekends in other months.
