March 23rd, 2011 — Linux = Freedom
I’ve not done a Linux post in a while. I thought that Firefox 4 deserved it.
Modern Ubuntu releases have made this whole process incredibly easy.
Got bubbles in your coolant system? You need this. This awesomely-huge funnel is designed to help you burp your radiator without fluid overflowing everywhere.
March 14th, 2011 — Sharka pix
After a year and a very long winter, I finally took Sharka’s hardtop off.
This is one of those items that’s been on my to-do list for quite a few years – swapping out Sharka’s stock tie rod ends for the 93 LE / 94 R-package ends. They help address the bump steer issues on a lowered car and it’s one part of a Miata that I’ve never replaced. That second reason alone is enough to justify the job.
Sharka gets a new Classic Instruments boost gauge to replace a tired “modern” one. The result is this post and far too many pix of a single gauge.

The newest member of the revlimiter.net fleet: a pewter MK1 MR2. A very very small MR2. Smaller than a US quarter. Check it out!

This is the 2nd helmet I’ve ever owned. I’ve suffered along with the same uncomfortable bargain rack KBC helmet for all of my racing life. It finally expired, so I treated myself to something a bit nicer.
Installing a Suzuki Cappuccino washer fluid bottle into a left hand drive Miata? With parts found in an abandoned train yard? Sounds like madness. But then again, I take pictures of toys in public like it was perfectly normal.

This is my Miata. There are 900,000 like it in the world, but this one is mine. I call it Sharka, and it is my best friend. It is my life…

I picked up the latest Transformer from the Masterpiece line this past weekend, MP-09 Rodimus Prime. And I just had to put him on my blog. Come inside, Transformers fans. The energon is on me.
