Fun at the Google Workshop: used the shear, bending brake and TIG welder to make a 16-gauge 6" steel cube to practice my corner welds.

MiataCage rollcage almost done. Dash bar is missing, as I made a critical measurement error and cut it too short. Luckily it's a straight bar so I just need to buy a fairly inexpensive length of suitable tubing and cut a new one--need to do that before final welding. Also will be adding a rear diagonal bar across the main hoop supports.

With regards to seat fitment I've eyeballed things relative to how my seat is bolted in my yellow Miata and the existing setup (OMP HTE seat) should transfer to this new chassis just fine, but I won't know for sure until I try it.

"Marriage may be contracted in accordance with law by two persons without distinction as to their sex."

Congratulations Ireland, once again saving--or at least leading--civilization. #marriagequality
The Republic of Ireland votes overwhelmingly to legalise same-sex marriage in a historic referendum.

Worthwhile content on Yes it is possible! Definitely worth a read. (H/T +Tim Nguyen for the link.)

"The problem is that we can't just collectively agree to make the context of history go away, any more than a bunch of leaves can get together and decide that there is no tree; the roots of history are still feeding us. Blacks are still stuck in neighborhoods with terrible schools and no job opportunities where they're being groomed for a lifetime in the corrections system. Women who want to get jobs as software engineers will find themselves in offices that are 84 percent male.

"So, while race is a social construct as are lots of gender roles, that doesn't mean they're not real -- the systems we're living under today were all built with them in mind."
What I am finding as time goes on is that we are all secretly Billy Joel.

Friendly service and the price of argon was less than half of what it was from the other "brand A" nearby. I wish I'd known about this place sooner!

Colleague of mine just went there and made a point of telling me first thing this morning about it. Prices were "insane" (in some cases 3x the comparable item at Fish Market Restaurant), and the food made him sick later that night.

A great little hidden neighborhood gem. The grilled chicken is succulent and perfectly seasoned. The pupusas and empanadas are great appetizers as well. The $6.95 lunch specials would be a deal at twice the price. Highly recommended!

My wife and I are regulars here. It's not as glitzy as the "other" place across the street but the sushi here is just as good if not better, and there's never a wait to get a table or a seat at the sushi boat bar. Great, unpretentious food served with a smile at a reasonable price, what's not to like?

Rotating pillar of buttered meat, what more is there to say? And their dolmades (grape leaves) were some of the best we've had too--plenty of meat and not overloaded with rice.
