Tesla Roadster

The Tesla Roadster is a battery electric vehicle (BEV) sports car produced by the electric car firm Tesla Motors in California between 2008 and 2012. The Roadster was the first highway-capable all-electric vehicle in serial production for sale in the United States in recent times.
Since 2008 Tesla had sold more than 2,400 Roadsters in 31 countries through September 2012, and most of the remaining Tesla Roadsters were sold in Europe and Asia during the fourth quarter of 2012. Tesla began producing right-hand-drive Roadsters in early 2010. The Roadster had a 2010 base price of US9,000 in the United States, GB£86,950 in the United Kingdom, A1,888 in Australia, and €84,000 in continental Europe. As an electric vehicle, the Roadster qualified for several government incentives in many nations.

How to #1: Fix the Vertical Line on your Vizio LCD TV! Works or Not?

How to #1: Fix the Vertical Line on your Vizio LCD TV! Works or Not?

This is the current TV and wall mount I own now

This is in response to this post online:

This is a Vizio VA370M 37″ LCD TV that has a Red horizontal pixel line. Yours might be Blue or another color. This is my test of a popular “fix” online to tap the line up and down until the line goes away. Other people report tapping has fixed the line. In my case it did not work.

There are a few really good suggestions and many people have
commented that user comments helped them fix their own issues!

I simply returned the TV.

Minivan Heater Hose Leak at Y pipe 2008 2009 2010 Chrysler Town and Country Dodge Caravan VW Routan

Minivan Heater Hose Leak at Y pipe 2008 2009 2010 Chrysler Town and Country Dodge Caravan VW Routan

See full instructions here, click the “show more” button! Think your radiator needs to be replaced on your 2008 2009 or 2010 Chrysler Town and Country or Dodge Caravan minivan? Think again! It might just be this plastic Y pipe on the heater hose! With about in parts (including new antifreeze) you can fix this. It will cost you 0 at the dealer! The dealer part is over 0 alone!
Parts needed:
2 feet of 5/8″ heater hose from Lowe’s, home depot or auto parts store
Brass 3/4″ T-pipe from Lowe’s Part #APXT34 Part Description: 3/4″ Crimp Tee Apollo PEX
1 Gallon antifreeze,
1 gallon distilled water,
drain pan,
6 hose clamps.
Step 1: This step is OPTIONAL. You don’t really need to do this, only a small amount of antifreeze will drain out if you just cut the hose. Optional – Drain the aintifreeze from the radiator. There is a drain on the drivers side of the radiator, turn the red knob with a screwdriver and take off the radiator cap and the antifreeze will drain out.
Step 2: Remove the hoses from the existing y-pipe. This can be difficult and its not necessary to take the hose off the firewall, you can cut it and use it as-is. Use a tree-pruner scissors tool is easiest for cutting through heater hose or use razor blade utility knife.
Step 3: Loose-fit the new brass T and cut pieces of the new heater hose to fit. LOOSELY fit everything together, with the clamps placed also! When you have it all looking good, put some antifreeze on the connections so the hose slips on nice, and push it all together and tighten the hose clamps.
Should take you about 1 hour all together not including the trip to the hardware store.

Don’t use a Plastic T! I did that at first and it cracked after 9 months. Use a Brass T.
The one from Lowe’s or Home Depot was .59

Buick Dimensions 1990 Computer Program on a Macintosh SE/30

Warning: This video contains flickering and animating patterns.

Last night (10/05/2011), just ten minutes prior to my BlogTV show and before I had any idea that Steve Jobs had passed away, I found my long lost (since 2005!) Macintosh SE/30 while looking for a scan converter. I rescued this machine from work back in 2004. As found it was mostly dead. Call me silly, but I didn’t have the heart to leave it that way. I resoldered much of the analog board and it sprang back to life. Some folks might call my rediscovery of the machine more than just a coincidence!

Here is a long-lost (almost totally lost, at least from my personal collection) something for all you Buick fans out there. GM commissioned the so-called “1990 Buick Dimensions” to show you everything their new 1990 Buick models had to offer, alongside a few “fun features” such as a reference atlas and a geography game. I rescued this from a disk box at work and thought it lost forever when the disk disappeared in the 2004 basement flood and I could not find my Macintosh SE/30. I feared it had been lost, along with the last vestige of this program.

This program will run on a color Macintosh, although it looks completely wrong, with funny colors. I know it will run on a Power PC machine with Mac OS 9.2.2, and seem to recall that it also ran well in the Classic environment of Mac OS X as provided on PowerPC systems running Mac OS X 10.4 or earlier.

Despite all this program does, it fits into approximately 780 kilobytes of disk space. That’s really something to think about even today, when even the smallest of programs may consume a few megabytes of space. The disk actually said “feel free to copy and pass on to your friends”, so that is what I will do. I will get this program off of the computer, though it’s probably going to require pulling the hard drive. Woohoo. It’s been a long time since I had any of the “original” Macintosh computers apart. Hopefully I can find my case spreader and long screw drivers.

I’d love to know if GM ever did this for other model years, what the first year these were offered might have been, if there was a PC version, and if the other GM divisions had something similar (other than the CD-ROMs offered in the 2000s). I’d like to save any other examples that there were.

Rather amazingly, it would appear that the Inmar Group is still in business.

Entrance to Octopus Garden
Honda Recall

On Explore/Flickr Top 500, Dec. 4, 2008

This is not really Octopus Garden. The noontime’s heat was at its peak, so it is wise to get to a shade. Looking at the view, I wondered about a place called Octopus garden, a fictional place in a song Octopus Garden. I just recalled a song, by Ringo Starr(Beatles, 1969). It goes like this(excerpts) :

…I’d ask my friends to come and see, An octopus’ garden with me
I’d like to be under the sea, In an octopus’ garden in the shade.

We would be warm below the storm, In our little hideaway beneath the waves
Resting our head on the sea bed, In an octopus’ garden near a cave
We would sing and dance around, because we know we can’t be found

I’d like to be under the sea, In an octopus’ garden in the shade…
