I hope that everyone enjoyed their holidays.

Jimbo only released a short this week: https://www.youtube.com/shorts/MhJs5Df_RxI It is bizarre that shorts-form videos continue to become more popular when they continue to make significantly less money--despite invariably appearing like they require significantly less effort? https://youtube.com/shorts/MhJs5Df_R...CFdXv41CLln_V9

Season 4, Jimbo took a vacation, and tested Dragy

He said the weather didn't cooperate, but someone from the U.K. sent him Dragy.
Jimbo 3d-printed an iPhone case without a hole for the camera so Dragy just records data because for some reason he preferred a $40 camera he bought.

I would have used a sticky note.

He said that he puts more work into each video than some people do their entire lives.

I just blocked CashApp because I saw that someone I used to know sent me a friend invitation.

She hasn't held a real just since 2017, although she was just hired, and starts on the 17th.

I don't understand how people like her exist, although she was homeless, and keeps telling me that she is out of food.

I am still working on the research project that was due on 12/8 and my professor finally responded to the e-mail I sent her just after midnight on the ninth.

It is funny how angry and demanding she was.

Four weeks later.

This is all the other instructor's fault, she agreed to let me continue my clinicals until the 23rd, and I always get more done if I work or go to school.

Just this morning I ordered a toilet seat and weed and feed, looked into treadmill desks because my doctor told me to walk 30 minutes a day, and tried to figure out how to get rid of the floating toolbar in Acrobat.

I went all of the way from only having 21 sources for my project to a whole 23!

I only need 30!

This also needs to be 8 pages and it is almost 4--unless you count sources.

Anyway, there isn't much to watch this week, I guess about as much as in the short:

That's the way to go!

Curious how they replaced the Metro engine with a smaller one.

Our first class was through Zoom, I turned on closed captions, and saved the transcripts.

I never asked my classmates if I could pay one to copy their notes, but since my classmates tend to post on boring car forums during class, I decided to upgrade Otter.AI.

Eh.

Later.

I just wish that I knew about the Zoom class before I went in. The secretary sent an e-mail 3 days ago, but I received 18 e-mails since then, and I just saw "Research Methods and Design..."

I was still struggling to finish my research project a month late.

I just need to submit it before midnight because then it would be over a month late and that is right out.

Jimbo has released videos every week, I just haven't shared them.

I hope that everyone is well enough!

Only 67 mpg in a diesel Insight? Crazy Jerry is reading this and scoffing to himself. If you remember, he had the 100+ mpg Urba Centurion with a Kubota.

Jimbo bought a stock Insight, got it running, and said it was full of obsolete crap--twice!

Have you seen the rest of his fleet?!

Thanks for posting, it's been quiet around the old homestead today. Currently you, me, and 550 lurkers.

Insights are nice, what I was looking at today was:

General Motors nameplate shenanigans in the 1920s.

Jimbo installed a supercharger in the Insight

I will check out that video after class.
I am in the front row and there is a chain clanking against something and it is driving me nuts.
I hope that all is well with you.
