So, the softball team is playing as well as can be expected. They’re 0-2-1, and they’re very proud of their tie, to them it shows that they’re improving. I can’t fault them for their enthusiasm. 🙂
The twins are doing great in Volleyball. I’ve had a chance to see part of one of Sofia’s games and toomorrow I’ll try to see part of one of Isabel’s games. Problem is her team beats the opponent so quickly I can’t get to the games in time. Wish me luck.
I think I’ve fixed the leaky transmission in the ’91 240! What a bear of a problem that I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy!
Haven’t had a chance to do any reloading or machining for a while, we’ve been very busy with the girls. Hopefully towards the end of the school year!
Wow! Over a year of no updates!
I’m still working at the same place – although that’s getting old and the subject of another post.
The kids are busy with school and now with sports. I don’t think we’ll have free time until then end of June.
I had the 262C running fine but something happened to the engine, it just wouldn’t start and stay running. I tried everything short of re-flashing the firmware on the MegaSquirt but it looks like I lost one or two cylinders. The wife and I started doing some thinking and after doing a cost-benefit we decided that the best solution at this time is to let the Bertone go. It helped that I got a bonus for some work I had done back in Deceber 2014 – it paid for the car.
I’m moving forward with metal work – welding/fabricating/casting – I think its fascinating. I’m also getting the reloading hobby off the ground as well.
More coming soon. I need a place to put eveything I’m up to, forgot that I had a web page! LOL.
So, the VirtualBox server is still up and running. The RAID did fail again a couple of days later but this time, instead of just rebooting and rebuilding the RAID, I shut it down completely and let it sit for an entire day or two. This time I yanked the drives and re-seated them, then rebuilt the RAID. It’s been running since then but I’m not holding out hope. I’ve been copying files over to a couple of emergency NAS boxes I built out of FreeNAS and some 1TB drives. So far so good. I still want to build a proper NAS with a couple of good drives in a custom box with a mini-atx board.
Finished the mini work table for the sander – came out pretty nice, details and pictures to follow.
I’m working on a roll-away cart for my shop equipment, i.e., for my band saws, grinder, and sander. I want to be able to move my tools around as necessary and to free up some space in the corner of the garage/shop. I hope to have adjustable shelves and an external shelf I can use to mount the big band saw for work. Hope it comes out the way I envision it. 🙂
Sadly, the work on the wife’s old Kindle Fire was not successful – couldn’t get it to charge. Plan B is a replacement board.
Lastly – Arizona is the #1 seed in the West Region of the NCAA tournament this year! Game #1 is Friday, 11:10AM. Go Cats!
