Rationality and Circuit Checks · 2:05am Dec 19th, 2017

Failure Management

We've got a two-parter here! Mostly because it occurs to me that there's some groundwork that y'all need for the Intrepid to make any sense.

Unfortunately, this one's gonna be heavy on theory, which means that I don't have too many topical pictures. Luckily, Present Perfect and I are having a little, uh, disagreement at the moment, and so I happen to have lots of batpony pictures cued up.

Blathering About Semicolons · 7:28pm Jan 27th, 2016

Howdy, folks!

So, semicolons.

It’s been a while since I’ve written any blogs about writing advice or whatever, but I’ve been thinking a lot about semicolons lately. Why? Because I’m the most interesting person on the planet, obviously. Marvel at how much I have going on in my personal life. Marvel.

Vehicle Computer Networks · 1:43am Sep 29th, 2017

I've promised this blog post and then I kinda forgot about it; luckily, one of the vehicles I got to work on today was a nice reminder. Like a sharp stick to the eye.

Rationality 2: the Mustang and the Intrepid · 2:33am Dec 27th, 2017

Y'all remember last week when we talked about rationality and circuit checks? Well, now we're going to be putting that knowledge to use! :yay:

I didn't get really in depth in failure modes, because it depends on a lot of factors, and often times the manufacturer doesn't tell us in the aftermarket what those modes are. Sometimes we have to learn by experience. Luckily, other times the manufacturers are pretty good at it.

Footnotes*! To do them right, enclose (2) the number (c), and use exactly the same format in-text and at the footnote (4). Asterisks are right out*****.

Fun with pulse-width modulation, and bare wires · 2:16am Feb 7th, 2018

What follows is the diagnostic procedure on three different vehicles, with three different results.

We're going to start with a Cadillac.

Y'all may remember from my network blog that various computers on the car are networked together, and how if there are communication problems, you can have issues that you might not expect?

I can't say for certain exactly what symptoms this car presented with.

A New, Strange Story · 9:36pm Apr 24th, 2017

I wrote chapter one of a new story today called The Many Sparkle Interpretation. It's a sci-fi murder mystery involving Twilight and Spike traversing the multiverse.

This is probably gonna be weird, and it probably won't be updated too regularly. Still, hope you enjoy.

Check it out, will ya?

Some of my automotive screwups. · 8:37pm Aug 11th, 2017

I was just passing the time watching some YouTube videos, as one does when they know they've got lots of things to do but don't really want to just yet. Anyways, besides all the other fun people I subscribe to, there's this grizzled mechanic who works on Audis and VWs and other fancy furrin cars that occasionally gets my interest. Mostly when he talks about improvised tools or why you should save money and buy your tools from Amazon instead of the tool truck, that kind of thing.

So I still can't get over my new keyboard... · 10:56am Jun 25th, 2016

Maybe in a month or so I would, but for now I am loving it, more than a week after I have bought it. Why I haven't discovered mechanical keyboards earlier I'll never know. Maybe it's because they're expensive, and they are. That's one caveat for those who might be thinking they can just go out and buy one. But it would be all worth it, let me assure you. And you will feel the difference right away as well if you have been using membrane keyboards for so long.

Driving a Wrecker: Fun with Radios · 3:38am Dec 12th, 2017

We're gonna go way back for this one—almost twenty years.

Damn, I'm old. :derpytongue2:

Anyways, back about 20 years ago, I drove wrecker.

This was back in the days of Netscape and digital cameras costing about a zillion dollars, so sadly I don't have very many pictures, and the few that I do are scans of actual photographs. Like this one, which is the truck I normally drove, #15.
