@ita97 That would be amazing - carry a mirrorless sensor and lens to slap on the back of a phone. Would have been amazing back when I could travel. Got tired of packing my DSLR so just resorted to taking meh pics with my phone most of the time.
@taylor-martin Yeah, its a nice fleet, and my buddy married into an awesome family. He himself has a Ford Raptor, Lancia Integrale HF, an Audi UrQuattro Rally car, a Volvo 940, and his wife rocks an S60. He recently sold a Peugeot 205 GTI, and before all these he had an STi and several Land Rovers. His dad and brother are both big Porsche guys and have owned various flavors of 911, a 944 Turbo, and a Cayman S. I am lucky to have friends with awesome tastes in cars.
It was great, Circuit Ricardo Tormo seems difficult to find passing places unless the chaser has a distinct advantage in edge grip. It was a solid plan from Miller but Franco was fast.
Yeah, some nimrods are going on about how Mir wouldn't have won against Marc, but Marc isn't there so "Winnings, winning".
He was great for that first part of the seasons. I firmly believe the Yamaha was the quicker overall bike for those tracks until they went to Austria x2 . Half way through both the Suzukis found some sort of second wind against Yamaha and Ducati. It's actually very strange.
We all love Vale but I think the sun is really starting to set. Tough year for him.
@skyfire77 Ok, so they're on orbit, but there's a couple of issues that they're working on: three of the four heaters on one of the Draco thruster pods are malfunctioning, regs say only two can be out of commission, so that may be a problem if they can't work it out, and the thermal control system was spiking on takeoff, and the primary and secondary systems faulted, leaving the redundant system to carry the load. Mission Control rebooted the systems, but they're still working an issue with the cabin temperature.
On the other hand: Screenshot_20201115-230708_YouTube.jpgBaby Yoda in space!
Agree. Great visuals, decent story, subpar acting. No chemistry between the leads.
I love Blade Runner. It seems that all dystopian movies and TV that followed irritatingly copy BR's take on urban scenes. Asian signs, 3D holographic building sized ads. I just started watching Altered Carbon and they do the exact same thing. They had a lot of money so it looked decent.
"the reason I like 5th Element so much is the LOOK" It also had better acting, chemistry, humor.
On the thread of copying things, I tried watching Dark Matter. They're copying everyone. They copied the Firefly cast without the wit and charm.
@Mazda616 Nice work! I had to replace the head unit on my brother's car awhile back....got one from a 2010 Accent at a salvage yard, his car is a 2009 Accent, so it was plug and play! ....2010 was the year they changed the color of the dash lighting though, so all his dash lights are lime green and the radio is blue 😛
@rallydarkstrike I've been running a 250 GB Samsung 850 EVO since I put it together a few years ago. The 500 GB Samsung 860 EVO that's now in it will be even nicer!
A 250GB 850 EVO is what I have as the OS drive in my Win10 desktop, along with a 1TB Western Digital mechanical drive (WD is by far my preference for mechanical hard drives....I have an ancient 80GB WD drive somewhere with over 11 years of powered-on time and not one error....they make good stuff!) 🙂
My Linux Mint 20 MATE laptop has a 500GB Seagate mechanical drive atm, but I have a 500GB Crucial MX500 SSD sitting to my right to install when I get around to it!
Any suggestions for a super cheap (...like $15-20) Nvidia video card with HDMI I could throw into my Linux HTPC? It's got a 1GB Radeon HD3850 in it, but older Radeon cards don't play well with Linux sometimes as AMD's Linux support for them was crap...I don't need gaming quality, it's strictly for watching TV and surfing the net on when I'm sitting on the couch in the living room! 🙂
@nomdeplume Working on it now. Couldn't figure out how to save a draft in order to work on it throughout the week, so here I am composing it at the last minute. Might publish a little later than the usual time. Still getting used to the post editor here, but it's better than DriveTribe, that's for sure.
I am super happy Mandalorian, Star Trek and His Dark Materials are back, I was an i09 visitor as well. I watched The Crown up to a point, I was more into the older period, I think the closer they get to now I lose interest. I do watch a ton of UK/NZ/Aussie stuff though. I really like Mystery Road, I saw the movies, I think they made the show branch off of that.
Well, it IS mundane. These were disposable (if expensive) cars and they don't have a great survival rate. Most of them got sold to cab companies and driven into the ground 20 years ago. Which makes the survivors kinda special, but frankly not all that special. The biggest Crown Vic message board has like 30 active members, and only 5 or 6 of them have the Box ('79-91) version.
But it's MY car, so yeah, I'm gonna care about it. Glad to see that others can care, too.
