Heh.  I like his sense of humor in the final comment.

Thanks for posting.  I bought a can of Underseal 08883 today, but I've never used it before, so I wanted to get an idea of what it should look like when I'm done.  Your video helped.

I've long advocated a permanent, active, ever-expanding robotic presence on the moon.  Even with transmission hand-offs, there's never more than a few seconds of delay between Earth and the moon, so it could start with extremely small, simple robots that are much cheaper to launch and land.  The lunar bases would continually expand by using local materials, parts scavenged from previous moon missions (if approved), and occasional supply drops from Earth.  As we gain experience with safety mechanisms, some tasks should be simple and safe enough to allow even young students and the general public to help control the robots.  Allowing a wide audience to directly participate in construction and exploration missions should help publicize the endeavour, and hopefully help maintain long-term public support.

If it's impossible for anything to be impossible, then it's possible that it's impossible that it's impossible for anything to be impossible.  But in that case, it's possible that... wait, I need to count on my fingers or write it down now...

Funny that you should mention sending the Internet.  Are you aware that Vint Cerf has done some work on extending Internet protocols to handle interplanetary and interstellar distances?  Since he developed so much of the original groundwork for what we now call the Internet, you might want to look up that research.

My mod suggestion is to remove the hood. Big engines in small cars have heat dissipation problems anyway, and a visible engine is more cinematic. Now you can send your exhaust pipes up out of the engine and to the side, preferably with occasional flames. Finally, put incandescent markings on the exhaust pipes, so that the lettering glows only when they pipes are hot. Have the letters say something in the language of Mordor, because even in the post-apocalypse, there WILL be nerds (especially when you're that close to NZ).

Congrats, it looks like it will really make the job easier. Did you weld the framework entirely from scratch (straight bars), or start with something that was already partially done? I noticed a bar code on one of the vertical posts.

I remember the old removable pull-tabs.  My dad would open a beer, say "Eee-cology!", and slide the tab inside the can with the beer.  It was considered the ecologically responsible thing to do because the tab was kept with the can, but there remained a small chance that the tab would slip back out of the can as the beer was flowing out, potentially choking the drinker.  For that reason I was glad when the newer tabs were introduced, though it took a while to get used to it hitting my upper lip and blocking part of the opening.

Linus Torvalds posted a question on Google+ a few years ago (March 3, 2012), asking the community to help him optimize a short piece of code in the Linux kernel.  Many of the proposed answers were just a few instructions long, so the search space is small enough that it could probably be examined comprehensively.  If someone wants to try out Schkufza's code with a demo problem, I suggest looking up that post by Mr. Torvalds.  Maybe you can generate a piece of code that makes it into the Linux kernel.

I'll try to paste the link next, but if it doesn't work, just look for a post by Linus Torvalds on March 3, 2012, entitled "More bitwise tricks". https://plus.google.com/+LinusTorvalds/posts/7bKRjV92snH

The anti-fog is so cheap that it's worth even a little bit of saved time. Still, if I don't have any anti-fog around, it's good to know that I'm better off grabbing some shaving cream instead of a potato.  Thanks!

Search YouTube for a channel named "Jafromobile" and you'll find some excellent videos from a guy who fixes and tunes old engines for use in things like drag racing. In a recent (April 2014) video he spent 30 hours meticulously polishing and porting a 4G63 cylinder head. After all that time & effort, he then took the cylinder head to this shop for work that he couldn't do himself. In other words, this is a shop that perfectionist engine experts are willing to trust. If it's good enough for guys like Jafro, it's definitely good enough for me. Oh, and a word of perhaps weird-sounding advice: Jafro said that he always brings them a big box of Krispy Kreme donuts along with the engine to be fixed. Maybe he was just joking (personally, I'd get sick of donuts if customers did that every day). Still, if you're bringing over a big job to them, maybe it's worth a few bucks to give them that kind of tip in advance. I've never done that myself, but it's something that Jafro does, so I'll pass on the information.

(Note: the location has changed from 2510 s. 48th St. to 122 S. Antelope Valley Parkway) This is my preferred auto service station. I've been in Lincoln since 1979, and over the years have gone to several different places. I've never had a truly horrible auto-repair experience anywhere in Lincoln (except the one time that Sears forgot to tighten the bolts on a new tire). H & S, however, is my favorite of the bunch. They really do take the "honest" approach seriously. On several occasions they could have easily talked me into a more expensive repair, but instead told me (correctly) that I could get by with less money using a different approach. They're human -- one time they guessed that my old van would *probably* survive a trip to Texas, but it died halfway through Oklahoma. Nobody can be sure of that sort of thing, however, so I don't hold it against them. H&S is still my favorite auto repair shop, and I strongly recommend them.

We got a flat tire in the middle of a long road trip, and hobbled into Eagle Tire only because it was the closest shop we could find. When an out-of-towner needs car service in a hurry, they're pretty vulnerable to being overcharged, but Eagle fixed the tire quickly, helped us get the spare put away, and only charged us $19.25, which I guess is the standard rate. We left a $5 tip.
