Wrote up my 1st impressions of my B'day present.
I got a new car gadget for my birthday, and I wanted to share my thoughts on it with you. I've used it for just two days, so my opinion is subject to change. Take this as my 1st impression AND keep in mind that I've not rea...

checked this tank out on internet. sounds like it saves 10-30 dollars
a month on electric bill. what is it actually doing to save the money.
did you already have the tank and the tank booster is something extra
to the tank or is it all part of the hot water heater.What is actually
saving the electricity? did you buy it at sam's?

Finally got my photos together will send them on. Thought you might
let me know how killed the robocalls. supposedly also removes your
number from their lists. having fun making my boxes and building my
new shed. finished the refinishing of the kitchen and bathrooms in
newberry. came out beautiful. Under 100 dollars for all the materials
needed. definitely great way to spruce up cabinets and furniture at
negligible cost and looks great when you're finished and real easy for
diy.
let me know a little more about the water tank booster thing.

Oh forgot to ask.. The Dual motor has a smaller front motor.  Could you tell which motor was being used 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.

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).

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 got a 2015 Pixel LS for Christmas. I wonder if anyone with Linux running on the Pixel has tried using Android Studio? I use Studio on Window currently and before I try this I'm wondering if it will perform. Thanks!

Was wondering myself. Thought about using a cloud-based IDE like Nitrous or codeanywhere as a substitute.

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!

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.

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.
