Another weekend gone by, another Cars and Coffee attended. These are the combined pictures of all three we visited: Katies Cars and Coffee, Dulles Landing Cars and Coffee, and Fairfax Cars and Coffee. Enjoy!

Today was a big day in the +Petrol Pad "Lite" garage. While attempting to fix the exhaust on the Midget I broke another manifold. Fed up I decided to get a Pace Setter performance header, wrap it, and replace the old method of bolting in an impossible to reach place with this newer "snug fit" method. I like it so far, I wish I had better visibility into the wrap but ultimately it's there to insulate heat not look good (though I love the look). Also replaced the heat shield as the old one was warped, broken, and aging. New stainless steel shield cleans up the car nicely.

Only downside is the new headers are not compatible with the previous exhaust, they're a good 5-6mm wider than the outer diameter of the old exhaust system. For now I just have it dumping under the car, I'll rig up a reducer and retrofit the old exhaust onto this. Haven't started it yet, but I'm looking forward to hearing the Midget roar again.

The fervor around self-driving cars terrifies me. Too many people seem willing to give up their control. If you want a car that drives you, invest in better public transportation.

I'm interested in a world where self driving vehicles are the public transportation. Minibusses or cars which pick you up at your door, linked to trains for longer distance. I also suspect commercial operators are going to be much more insistent on getting security right, where as the goals of the current features being hacked are to sell more cars to ignorant consumers.

Busy weekend at +Petrol Pad front brakes on the TR6 have been pulled, rebuilt, new pads, reinstalled. While bleeding the brake lines we blew out the rear brakes. New part on order for drum brake rebuild next weekend.

Everything is in place for the header swap and front suspension updates on the Midget, but we're going to save that for next weekend.

Pulled the brakes on the TR6 today as they've been seizing up while driving. Seems like there's a blockage in one of them so they'll be rebuilt. Also spent some time on the upgraded headers for the Midget. This will be the third manifold I've had to put on the car, hopefully the last!

Should have all the cars running by the upcoming DC Sprint in September.

See how Cassandra stacks up on GCE and AWS. All this possible by using Juju! Bringing repeatable benchmarking to cloud platforms.
or how we created cross-cloud tunable, repeatable benchmarks for everybody. by Adam Israel. tl;dr - We achieved better Cassandra performance on GCE vs. Amazon, at close to half the cost. When we decided to start the process of benchmarking across different clouds, Cassandra stood out as a great ...

Step one - Build a Raspberry Pi Cluster Cloud fueled by snappy, docker, and LXD is complete. About 1/2 of the setup is done.

I've assembled the hardware, built out the docker services and attached swarm. Now to try and build LXD (or poke the lxd developers for some LXD snappy lovin) and see about running them in paralell off the same network bridge.

#lxd   #lxc   #docker   #raspiberrypi2   #namegrab  
The name "Clementine Box" is a bit of a namegrab. Let me lead with that. This is in no way affiliated with an official Canonical project, just something I'm doing in my spare time to experiment with mixing LXD and Docker services to prove that building a container based cloud in something that ...

Awesome song for this old video
 
VIDEO: Old Folks at Home!

This song was commissioned by Louise and Arthur Shelby, and features Kevin Kingsley on saxophones.

This is a selection from Kart Sticker, a new Catscan! album, out September 25, 2015, and available only at live shows.

Awesome editing chops on that.  I have the original version of the Fleischer cartoon called "Grampy's House".

It took over two weeks to complete this "oil change". New oil screen wouldn't fit, two of the 6 oil screws stripped on reinstallment, with over 8 days of waiting for new screws, cap heads, oil screen, and oil plate. Everything's all buttoned up and fresh oil in the VW with no more leaking from the seals!

We've got k8's ready for you to kick the tires. 
A big congratulations to the Kubernetes project and community on releasing version 1.0 to the public! Kubernetes (a.k.a. k8s) is an open source system for managing containerized applications across multiple hosts called a cluster.  Over the past six months we’ve had a small team of “container people” working to make sure that we could deliver [...]

This is some of the best prepared sushi I've had in my life, it's one of the only places in the area the comes close to the freshness I experienced in Tokyo

I've had the team at Vienna Gas & Auto look after several of my cars and my family's cars. In total they've helped fix and maintain 7 cars. Always great work, fast turn around, and friendly! I recommend them to all my friends and can't appreciate their work enough.
