I’m trolling my Cul de sack today and going to get the rumors started. Them bitches can’t get rid of me that easy!!
Call the number...
Hello. XJDano because of the name sake for a Jeep Cherokee XJ I own, which is in pieces…. Still. I’ve been around Oppo since some early days before the reset and then then shut down, 08 maybe?
I’ve had some fun automotive adventures I would still like to do a write up on. Like the time I was an honorary pit crew for Morgan Shepard, or being a pseudo safety car observer for the WEC 2016 Texas lone star race and getting a ride along in the Audi R8 safety car with 4 Time LeMans winner. And my most recent Tennessee & Smokey mountains motorcycle weekend.
I daily drove a Chevy Metro for almost 10 years, and sold it for a plane ticket home.
I still own 2 - 1984 VW Rabbit GTi that are also both in pieces or in need of repair that seemed like a dream, until I got them and lost interest.
I like beer. Beer is good.
There is a lot going on there.... A LOT! No garage, no deal though.
Well, it’s begun. I’m on my way to the Smokey mountains along with Uncle Les. He is on his Harley that pretty much new, and I’m on my 39 year old Honda.
It’ll be a bit challenging because I’m the kind of driver who will stop for gas, but Hippie Les stops at every rest stop. Oh well. Depending on what kind of mileage we are getting, we may just go for the Iron Butt challenge while we have the weekend. 1,000 miles in 24 hours.
Cheers oppo! Happy Independence Day weekend.
Our factory radio was holding cds hostage and being finicky about wether it would read/ play the cd or not. So I upgraded to something made a few months ago (tag said Feb, 2021. And since we are still oldies I got another cd player.
The Bluetooth will be nice, radio still works, bought the do-hicky that retains the steering wheel controls, so that’s nice as well. The usb stick has some files that I probably got in the Napster days, and some work. It’s interesting to go through on random.
In other news:
I tested negative for my first covid test. I was actually in close proximity of my dad last Saturday who started getting symptoms Sunday. Apparently he had been getting worse and went to the hospital today. They are some anti-vaxers so we’ll see how it goes. My mom was even trying to “advise” is not to get the vaccine Sunday before we left. ( I was there doing some labor work for her goat area). Im not against it, but I’ll be looking to sign up for it soon.
I ordered these Star Wars glasses from eBay to replace one I had found and had been using for a few years until my wife brought her alcoholic drink outside and tipped the glass and it broke.
What’s interesting is these glasses came shipped in what was likely the original bags from Burger King and it looks like they were made March 1 & 2, 1983.
Plan is to ride motorcycle down With Uncle Les the Harley rider Friday to Nashville, then to the tail Saturday and stay somewhere around, The my wife will come down Monday after and we’ll spend the week in the Smokey’s and probably trailer the two bikes back with our van.
We are still in preliminary stages of planning, but my wife’s uncle doesn’t do much planning. So this may be in interesting trip.
Should be interesting. Dude has had some funny content in the past.
@rallydarkstrike ok, so here is some crazy. I guess I’m swiping too quick.
As a right handed user I’ll scroll / swipe with my right thumb. Being the back swipe is too quick and and then it gets stuck. Like placing the thumb on the left and forcing it back like it’s a piece of paper, I don’t know it’s a habit. But if it’s slower it drags the menu out. I checked safari and clicked a bunch of links and profiles to get a history built up. Then stated swiping, and does the same on Safari.
Once the menu is stuck I can’t click / tap on anything other than the menu. Even if I select something from the menu, it loads the page and still stuck. Until I go like all the way back to one of the first pages I vied, then back to the main oppo header to get on the FP again.
I’ve never said anything because I didn’t want to be a bother. I can’t swipe 55.
@rallydarkstrike I don’t know I don’t use safari. It seems to be spastic, works sometimes and doesn’t other, but once it’s stuck, every time I swipe back the page will load but the menu is there and I can’t swipe it away. Hmm.
@rallydarkstrike ok, so I may have situated it myself, selectee the swap menu sides tab in settings and seems to be fine. It was annoying enough I’d just get frustrated and close the browser and spend time elsewhere. Sorry it’s been so long. (My XJ is still in pieces, so not much is changed anyway)
Edit, nope. Now it seems the chat gets stuck. Hmm.
@rallydarkstrike is there a way to disable the left swipe menu on mobile (iPhone with chrome) ? It seems that once I swipe to go back, the menu gets stuck and I have to go to swipe back until it gets to the oppo main page. It’s pretty frustrating. Wasn’t sure where else to ask this.
@hfv I don’t know that electric would be great for American rally. There are only 1-2 service and they are driving all day, and have a certain time to be at the check in for the next stage. It’s like a Timed distance rally, but the stages are raced everything else gets a set time to get there and penalties if you are late.
The concept is great, they’d have to make some quick change batteries & be able to swap in the same time to fill up ata gas station… I don’t think they’d be allowed to change batteries though in transit without calling it a service & taking a time penalty.
@Dusty-Ventures would be able to clarify
@hooker my son & I are playing through SMB3 as one of the NES games, and he just showed me a “cheat” of sorts. You can Hold the L&R buttons down and select how far back you want to rewind. Dang man. !
He says it works for the SNES games as well.
@hooker I have a switch for the family. Online cost was $19.99/year. Included with that are some select NES & SNES games.
I’d assume that the N64 games will be apart of that (free to download). As far as I know the NES and SNES games are not for online play. I’m not sure you’d be able to play the N64 games online vs others either.
What I play most is Mario Maker, where people create levels and you play those. I think if I didn’t have the online subscription, I wouldn’t be able to play the other levers besides the story mode.
Get a separate controller, they are about $30.
The exposed brick looks nice. I recently did a lead job where the client only wanted the “Loose and flaking” removed and encapsulated. https://imgur.com/gallery/CEmFQbI
It actually looked pretty good when completed. Used a clear so the old paint would show.
