| O-T Lounge|| Color laser printer recommendations? - Korkstand on 5/23/14 at 3:47 pm|
We have a Brother that prints ok, but the damn thing has a couple problems every week. Either one of the cartridges starts shitting color all over every page, or it complains about low toner in an almost new cartridge, or it won't print because it's bitching about some phantom error and I have to re...
| Money Talk|| TSLA update - Korkstand on 5/13/14 at 4:55 pm|
I told Vols&Shaft that I would bump the old TSLA thread this month, but it is locked. Last May, I projected that TSLA would double in 1 year. Of course, it doubled within 3 months, and it was more than triple last May's price at one point, but I promised to check back in after 1 year anyway.

I'm only bad for about 6 weeks in the spring, and I've tried all of the different daytime stuff and none of that shite works. The only thing that works wort...

The wife was looking through thumbnails on G+ and something looked a little hoff about one of them, so she opened it up and there he was. The actual improvements AutoAwesome does are a nice feature, but silly little things like this make G+ my favorite photo backup option.

I was waiting in the drive through at McD's (I know, I'm trashy), and it was a single line that splits into 2 order lanes, then they merge again after. A car skipped 4 of us who had been waiting and squeezed into the outer lane. I got out the truck, walked up to their car and knocked on the window. ...

It is small, lightweight and fast, but has features out the ass. (I'm a poet and didn't know it)

Pilot light won't stay lit. It will stay lit as long as I hold the button (I held it for about a minute), but it peters out once I let go. Does this mean the thermocouple is bad? I googled how to check it, and I'm not getting near the mV I think I should. But then I might not be doing it right.
