Damn, I'm sunburned.
Anyway, the correct answer to my "brakes" quiz turned out to be "add more fluid and ignore it". I checked and my brake fluid was running low. See, my drivers side front caliper has a verrrry small leak in the cylender from when my brakes failed entirely about a year and a half ago. The rubber gasket around the cylender took some damage when the cylender extended too far as a result of my brake pad falling off the metal holder, and while I got it to maintain a seal again, it's never been the same. It's been a year and a half since the last time I screwed with it, and leaking that tiny bit over the course of 1.5 years isn't bad, all things considered.
Currently there's a dead tie for first direct-connect between
I got a few sealed lead-acid batteries, and a hook up for some more of them. If you have a use for them, they're 13 amp hour alarm batteries. Hit me up and I'll see if I can get a few more if you're gonna actually use them. :-> The cost is free, but it would be my recommendation that you actually use them, because disposal is technically illegal.
My ISDN ISP is being a pain in the nuts today. I ended up temporarily connecting to my old ISP until I can brow-beat my current ISP into fixing their crap.
My shower still wasn't fixed when I got home. I made a point of leaving one of the most vitrolic flames I have ever made on the answering machine of the complex. I truly pity the person who has to listen to the message, which contains several instances of "fucking pissed" and "bullshit", as in "I've gone without a working shower for 2 weeks now, I've made 3 support calls, only one recieved a response, and the person who came fucked it up more than it was before. That's bullshit. I'm fucking pissed, and I want a working shower. That's not too much to ask. Come and fix it tomorrow. Make sure the repairman actually checks to see if his repair worked, because he didn't last time."
Anyway, enough of my long ass post. I had an awesome weekend at field day.
