I just got notice they’re going to extend a final offer to me. It’s a 17% bump in pay and better benefits, and the commute is only another 5 minutes (so 20-25 total).
I’m looking for input from our more residentially-inclined Oppos, or anyone really. My hovel is terrible, and I’m trying to re-design the room layout 1) so it works better and 2) to sell it in about half a decade. Also, termites essentially removed the base plate in my East outside wall, so a renovation is going to be…
For the first time in like a decade I have nothing to do at work, so I’m using Sweet Home 3D to change the interior layout of my house. So far I still can’t fit a 2-post lift in the dining room, but I’m getting there.
Currently sitting in ball soup. AMA.
In KY. Drinking some Woodford Reserve Double Oaked. Good times.
Downtown Louisville has...a lot of hipsters. A lot more than I expected. Also, Feast BBQ is fantastic.
Starting a new job with the same pay but trading my hour and a half commute for a 20 minute commute. w00t.
This is a bummer. I always enjoyed getting their newsletter and ordering parts from them.
Do you like cars? Like, really like cars? To the point that close friends and family are concerned for your well-being because 1) you like cars too much to have any close friends and 2) your family has given up communicating with you through your preferred use of chassis codes and CEL hieroglyphics?
Looking at this tomorrow. Anything of note to worry about? It’s $1,600 which is directly in a friends budget.
Just got a phone call about a suspicious bag at a terminal in an airport. Luckily I’m not the cops, but I know their correct number and told the caller. Guess I should watch the news over the next day or two.
Level 7 with a whopping 3 kills to my name. This game is misery.
My friends 2000 Integra LS automatic is stutter-shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear, and takes a heavy foot and about 3,500rpm or 4,000rpm to get it to finally shift up into 3rd. Is this a pressure switch issue or a shift solenoid issue? I’m having trouble finding a clear answer online, and won’t be able to pull codes off…
Update on this. I finally received an offer for what looks like a 15% pay increase with oodles of (assuming) better benefits. Now comes endless paperwork and another waiting period. Hopefully I can get past their screening process (a myriad of mirror-fogging tests I’m sure) and land this thing before August.
oh jesus fuck why can’t the Kinja devs keep their dick-beaters off of our shit???
I’m replacing the rear pads and rotors on a ‘00 Integra LS tomorrow morning - any pointers other than the caliper tool to turn in the pistons?
What are the chances that three vehicles in a row all have nails in their tires, when all the owners happen to be standing at/near the service counter? Dad took mom’s Land Cruiser in for service and they found a screw in one of the tires, along with two other customer vehicles. I’m wondering if some bored tech is…
