Yeah, I'm not going to mess with $2500 of driver and controller electronics with a two week lead time if I can avoid it.

Lots of older very kinky yet still well dressed people doing their thing (shows, walking the gimps, etc) and a bunch of young students going WTF. best behaved night ever. Apparently these don't just get turned on by dicipline, they inspire it as well.


I'm having flash backs to the first time I walked into one of those fetish clubs while I was in Germany...


Well you can't just leave us hanging like that! What happened?


I gawked for awhile, met some interesting people, had some drinks, and after about 3 hours I think? We bounced on to the next club.

I've gotten a couple of surprises when changing out receptacles. Also got a pair of pliers with a couple of holes in them. :lol:

Electricity is FUN.

In the dwarf fortress sense, of course.

It's not that bad. It hurts enough to make you jump back. I much rather get shocked than take punch to the gut.

Fist exam came back, literally one point away from getting an A-, glad to have passed but still a little under the weather about it.

Uber has made a lot of questionable decisions behind closed doors, and today, yet another one emerged. According to The Information, between 2014 and 2016, Uber used secret software called “Hell” in order to track drivers from its biggest rival, Lyft.

What the fuck Uber? A program named "Hell"? :lol:

Interesting how they can monitor who is driving for both Uber and Lyft though. Pity Lyft wasn't here when I first started for Uber, I would have liked a bonus.

We had giant hailstones yesterday, it was beautiful on Monday and today is looking nice too. It's been pretty weird lately.
