An open letter to people with convertibles

(viewed 1383 times)

If you don't want a convertible car, give me yours. I will appreciate it, and treat it right. That means putting the roof down on sunny days. On modern cars it's only a matter of pressing a button (and maybe releasing two catches), there is NO EXCUSE.

I'm bitter, because I have to drive a very boring* car and I suspect now that I may never be able to afford to buy or run a dinky little sports roadster like I've always wanted.

* so boring I often feel like crashing it just so something will happen. It's a diesel 206.

actually surprisingly scary when your hand is within pecking range.

phenom-on-om do-doo-dododo

New hardware. Screenshot is from the (crashed) old-new hardware which was sent back after a day or so last week. Don't buy xx00-series phenoms, they are buggy as hell! In this pic, one of the four cores had crashed. Various parts of the system would keep running until they tried to run on the crashed core(s). Weird. Unfun.

Those copper tubes in the first shot are what the internet goes down.
