I remember when +Altin Ukshini  came to the US and hung out with us (I'm in the group pic of the +LVL1 HackerSpace folks) and he inspired us to start MOSSCon, which was a great opportunity.  I'm excited to see what they can do in Kosovo with their hackerspace:
Cyrus Farivar is raising funds for Let's build a Hackerspace in KOSOVO on Kickstarter! Prishtina Hackerspace is a community-operated creative lab in Kosovo—Europe's newest country.

I did not fix the overall problem but I did get the leaking gaskets to stop leaking coolant into the intake.  Hopefully it's either the top O2 sensor or a problem with low fuel pressure.  I've been working on getting it fixed all day and i'm exhausted.
 
Epoxy all the things! Trying to fix my Buick again.

I did a "wrap" with a second round of epoxy.  Seems to be holding.
 
So close!

I think the landing speed was too high for adjustments to be feasible.
Slower might work next time.

Sorry dude that sucks.
 
Yup!

Not too worried about not making the top 4 in tonight's competition; we're still pushing forward.

If the doors are still open, it's a win.
 
My partner +Kartik Kamat​ pitching our startup Fuelytics at the Venture Connectors #VentureSharks semifinals. Sadly we did not get into the final 4.

We're building an app to help solve fuel slippage (theft) on company cards; interested in seeing how we could help your company save money on fuel costs?
