Still Alive

Well, I’m still here, believe it or not. It’s been a hectic few weeks, both scheduling and emotionally. To be honest, I’m in a pretty crappy mood right now. I went through a whole emotional fly-high-crash-burn cycle yesterday, and I haven’t quite recovered. Damn, it sucked. P-Lo, thanks for dinner yesterday. I had a great time, and the whole crashing part has nothing to do with you. As usual for me, I started off pissed at someone else and eventually realized that I’m the one I need to be pissed at. *sigh* Hopefully I’ll get my head out of my ass and figure out what to do about all this.

Technical Note

Things I’ve learned over the last two weeks:

  • WRXs have boost guages marked in mega-pascals. I don’t know what a pascal converts to, but Pat claims it’s 100kPa = 1 bar.
  • When buying a torque wrench, make sure you’re buying one designated in foot pounds, not inch pounds. Even the sales guys won’t notice the difference when you go to return it. Twice.
