I've washed him and have some notes.

Took longer than I wanted to get this done, but did my first drive way wash with the new Roadster this weekend. Nothing fancy, just a bucket and a hose. And I have some notes. The top is in desperate need of some 303. It acted like a sponge when the water…

Was a big week here. A HUGE week actually. At least as far as my current state of well being goes. First up, with hard work, determination and a sprinkle of whatever, I've managed to get myself back to what I will call pre-diabetes. At the same time, I…

*Short Version* There was an issue with dbmini.us that was causing pop-up ads and redirects. I have corrected this. Apologies for the trouble! *Nerd Version* From what I can tell, this was done via FTP. Just in case, I went ahead and did the…

Why all the damned science? Because reasons, but tequila is involved!

You might have been seeing that I have been doing ‘science’ with my exercising again. You might have also noticed that I have been exercising more than normal and at odd, or very odd, hours. [When last we…

To ensure no F bombs are dropped during the [show](http://www.whiteroofradio.com), I have taken to having a clearing out session just prior to recording. Thought it would be fun to share (plus learn some ways we use Slack!). It’s pretty NSFW, but I know…
