  1. How do I delete my Account?

    Sorry for the delay; I just found this thread. Please send me a message, and I'll take care of it.
  2. General Chat/Time-Waster Thread

    Ukraine's currency. Sounds like you really had fun over there. Welcome back!
  3. General Chat/Time-Waster Thread

    The plug-ins are still enabled, and turning them off and back on again didn't get it to appear. I'd have to guess they're incompatible, and we just need to wait for the plug-in authors to update them.
  4. General Chat/Time-Waster Thread

    A small list of reactions replacing the likes, for one. I'm not sure whether I like it or not, and I haven't checked to see if it's customizable.
  5. The Name Change Thread

    Plants with one S wasn't taken, so it's now yours.
  6. What do you drive?

    If well cared for by a mechanically inclined owner and the Haynes book, pretty much. I wasn't as kind as I needed to be to the transmission, treating it like a closed system when it isn't. Also, in my stupider youth, I burned out enough clutches to make my family a bit skittish with me near a stick, which is why I have an auto while the rest of my family's Subies are sticks. That said, it's still possible for them to fail in catastrophic ways. At 195,000 miles, the water pump seized, and the symptom of its immanent failure was misdiagnosed. On Outbacks, it's driven by the back side of the timing belt, and when it seized, it got the belt so hot it melted the bearing cover of one of the idler pulleys. The bearings fell out, slacking the belt, and yet it still kept the crank and cams timed well enough to just walk off and melt a hole right through the front of the timing belt housing cover. The engine didn't quit until it came completely off a pulley and halfway out of the entire housing. The belt replacement was fine, but the replacement pulleys and and housing cover were a bit of a pain in the wallet. Also, unbelievably thankfully, the engine was designed to make it impossible for a piston to hit a fully open valve.
  7. What do you drive?

    At the moment, an ancient Mazda B2200 pick-up. My hailstorm-surviving '96 Subaru Legacy Outback may have driven its last. After 350,000 miles, the automatic transmission started acting up, and the torque converter clutch is telling the computer something's wrong with the solenoid.
  8. Is this thing on?

    Am I just imagining things, or are blog notifications finally working?
  9. SSD died

    That sucks, man. Admittedly, I haven't seen many SSD failures, but none of the ones I have died as slowly as a spinning-platter HDD. Even my old workstation's IBM Deathstar had more time (1-3 hours) between "something seems off" and total beyond-readable failure.
  10. The Name Change Thread

    I'm really sorry it took so long, but it has now been done.
