We got the first delivery today for our bookshelf on the back wall of the dining room. Under the window will be four file drawers (delivered), a storage bench (78 3/8" wide) between the cabinets with two drawers underneath (next week), and bookshelves over the top of the whole thing, beside and over the windows (probably a few weeks down the road). They're all done in hickory, like the herb garden.

Our Infiniti's AC compressor clutch died. Since it's equipped with a variable displacement compressor, the clutch is only disengaged when I specifically turn the AC off on the dash. I figured since I never do that, I might as well just bypass the whole fucking thing.

There, I fixed it. Lol

RE: Attention whore thread
Is your Infiniti old enough that this shit is not covered by warranty? Damn dude, I didn't realize you were in such dire financial straits.

Now I feel guilty about all those tax hikes my communist Democrat brethren have foisted upon you.

Heh, the car is from 2006. Had I not just spent $1500 for two new wheels and four new tires, I'd have just replaced the damned compressor.

For now, my Presidentially-approved™ engineering solution will have to do.

It's got a variable displacement compressor (when the pressure is too high, the compressor reduces the stroke of its piston, thus reducing the pumping). It won't do any worse than it did before.

I've got 280 of them to compensate with. Not like I'm driving some little rinky-dink Ford Fiesta with about 12 HP to play with.

The new fiesta is nothing like the old fiesta. It is much more zippy than the old one which was atrociously slow and even dangerous when overtaking other car on the freeway.

My mom's Fiesta is a 2011 model, and it's slow. The new three cylinder turbo model has and extra 20 pound-feet of torque, though, so I feel I could recommend that model. And of course the ST has almost 200 HP, so it's not slow.

But the vast majority of Fiestas out there on the road are neither the three cylinder turbo, nor the ST model.

And they are slow.

I taught myself how to solder by building a tremolo effects pedal. It's from a kit, but I'm pleased with the result. More the results of my practicing soldering than the chunky soldering job I did. But it's hard to see the chunky bit from where I play, so I'll get over it.

DOES THIS MEAN SOMEONE SITS ON YOU ALL DAY?

I bought some solder and a gun and never used cuz I wussed out. I keep it in my toolbox as a memorial to failure. And just maybe, someday.…

That is a very original thought. I haven't heard anything like that before.

Anyways, today is my birthday. Since Easter Friday is when we do the traditional easter egg hunt in Banff we'll be celebrating it then.
My logic is infallible. Resistance is futile.
