Jason,
Enjoyed both videos.  I like the chrome handles but I do understand your point, and I agree that body color handles should be available.  I had chrome handles on all my pasted cars (starting with a 1970 Chevelle) and never been burned (I've lived Hoston). Possibly the old fixed in place handle with trigger/button were able to dissipate heat better to the surrounding sheet metal vs less heat transfer via the retracting handle hardware.  Maybe I was just quicker opening the door back in the day. Who knows.

I've watched a ton of Tesla Model S videos and your's is the 1st one I remember that alerted me to the rear cup holders option.  FYI - another video I once saw did mention that there are no shirt hanger hooks over the rear doors...

Congratulations Bjorn,
Why not have a 'Name Bjorn Model X' campaign?

FYI - If I was in an better economic position I would buy a Tesla using your link.  Hopefully come Model 3 time they'll have another referral program and I be able to use your link then!

It's not very fancy but here is a video of my Android app I'm submitting for my course project.  It basically has one activity that has 5 colored rectangles that change color when you drag the slider.  It has a menu that will open a dialog box and tell you about the app and will let you visit a museum web site for more information.  This took me ~20 hours to write (from scratch).

aloha don

we dropped off susie's car on tuesday morning and i put her on the
plane tuesday afternoon.everything went fine. we had a good time at
the grand canyon (we drove in the back way and missed all the traffic
coming from LA.) haven't done much at chris's except help him with the
three sound systems he has and we've been setting them up every day at
the little league parks for the tournament they are having here in
brea. I think i'll be all baseballed out by the time i leave on the
8th. I'm just not used to the fast pace any more.It's great to see all
the cousin's kids coming out well so far in their lives. Uncle Jack
has been a great help to stabilize everyones life here in brea.

I wrote up the install of my dehumidifier I installed last week.  Be sure to click the photo to see the album and read the captions.

what are you sitting in the recliner for? You should be working out in
the new gym you're going to build so you can keep lifting things like
the dehumidifier. lol

Project Help  - 
 
I have a Alamode and it's been working fine mated to my Raspi B+ board.  I got a Raspi 2 loaded a new SD card with raspban and setup the Alamode per instructions at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1HBvd3KNmcs632ZgO6t_u37B-qwV6P9o9FQe62lGkumM/ but when I compile/download Blink the compile is clean but download completes with a red message "avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding".  

I got a 2nd SD card and loaded Raspban on it and went through everything a 2nd time and got the same error.  I've not tried my working SD card from the B+ but I will try that shortly.  Any ideas?  Thanks,
Drive

Oh forgot to ask.. The Dual motor has a smaller front motor.  Could you tell which motor was being used most of the time?

+Don Miller We had Range Mode activated. That uses the front motor most of the time.

Echo has potential.  Some things like talking reminder to me should have been there from the get go.  I sort of scratch my head wondering why they didn't do that.  After all Echo speaks what's on your shopping list when asked.  Anyway I agree with Maryann.  Echo is an investment in the future, with limited near term dividends.

Last year I did it in 34:48 (gun), so I cut 3 minutes off this year. I did try this year. Last year I just ran. My goal was under 30 minutes (chip time) so I didn't make that. Maybe next year. I did however break 10 minutes miles. My pace for the 5K was 9:58 per mile.

AlaMode  - 
 
I'm trying to run the AlamodeTester.py after cloning git@bitbucket.org:wyojustin/my-pi-projects.git using the Adafurit WebIDE.  I get the "IOError: [Errno 2]'No such file or directory" on line 12 which is a def init(self, address, bus=smbus.smbus(0), debug=false):

I'm not a python expert but the smbus is/was imported so I don't know which 'file' it is looking for.

Any insight would be appreciated.  I'm running on Raspi 2.

I called Abel Septic and made an appointment to have my septic tank emptied. Philip the driver/owner showed up on time. Philip pumped the tank using the inlet inspection port (easy to access). Then he took the time to locate the outlet inspection port (which required a bit of shoveling). He opened the outlet port to examine the output Tee since my concrete septic tank is 25 years old. He suspected my output Tee was also concrete, and if so, it would likely be deteriorate. Sure enough the output Tee was in bad shape, so with my permission he installed a new plastic output Tee that includes a filter screen. The new plastic Tee should last the life of the tank. I appreciate Philip at Abel Septic for asking me the right questions and then taking time to make sure my tank was in good repair. He saved me the hassle and expensive of digging up a blocked drain field ($5000+) since the output Tee job is to block solids from exiting the tank. I highly recommend Abel Septic and will follow his recommendation for cleaning. Their fee was fair for both the pumping and the new output Tee installation. I feel I got good value using his service.

These people care about you and your family. Dr Greg and Dr Emily spend time with me and explain everything and always answer my questions. The staff are super friendly, and helpful. Dr Greg posts great videos to youtube which I watch and really appreciate. They conduct seminars to educate and make sure me and my family get the most out of their care.
