| Outdoor Board|| The tune-up thread - Hammertime on 8/19/14 at 8:45 pm|
I got the new truck Saturday, and have been slowly going through the process of tuning it up and fixing broken things. I just did this stuff today, but will add more to the thread as I get money to do them. I have some shocks and bumpstops coming in tomorrow, so I'll update it when I get that done.

Finally the BFPS F250 saga is over. That thing was a nightmare for 3 years.
New truck that I picked up from Houston yesterday:
| O-T Lounge|| Backup camera options for truck - Hammertime on 8/17/14 at 9:52 am|
I just got a new-to-me truck yesterday that sits pretty ass-high, and am wanting to get a backup camera system on it. I back up to trailers multiple times a week and back into parking spots almost all of the time. I will probably connect it to a double din touchscreen radio in the near future, but h...
| O-T Lounge|| KBB, NADA, or Edmunds - Hammertime on 8/11/14 at 1:06 pm|
Which one do yall use or find most accurate? How do they calculate the values?
For my truck, NADA and Edmunds are within $1000 of each other, but KBB is $10,000 less. What gives with that shit? I personally find Edmund's the most accurate, but people always want to use the blue book value. Every ...
| Food and Drink Board|| How should I heat up this arancini from Fausto's? - Hammertime on 8/11/14 at 12:53 pm|
Gf went to Fausto's Saturday and brought me my favorite appetizer home. I haven't ever had leftovers, so I have no idea how to heat it up and eat it for lunch.
Basically it is a big ball(softball) of cheese, meat, and peas that is fried. Microwave is gonna be a soggy mess, so what temp and durat...
| O-T Lounge|| Someone broke into my mom's car last night - Hammertime on 8/3/14 at 8:17 pm|
Car was sitting under the carport. They broke the window, rifled through her CDs, and the only thing they took was her parking pass. She had a brand new TV sitting in the back, but they left it. Parents weren't even at the house.
Wtf kind of stupid robbers steal a parking pass for a garage downt...
| Help Board|| White blocks showing up on chrome mobile - Hammertime on 8/2/14 at 11:31 am|
I get these white blocks that randomly show up in threads when I use Chrome on my Galaxy S3. Has been going on for the past week or two. They only happen on TD, and I can't read the threads when they do. Happens on both Wifi and 4G. I can zoom in and out and they sometimes move, but when I zoom back...
| O-T Lounge|| What setting do you keep your Sonicare toothbrush on? - Hammertime on 7/29/14 at 12:16 pm|
I've had the thing for 2 or 3 years, and the clean setting just feels like it takes way too long. Been on refresh since the first month. I had two wisdom teeth taken out and don't need all of that brushing now
I haven't ever used any of the other settings because they just seem useless. It is a ...
| Outdoor Board|| Do you have to practice pulling back your bow? - Hammertime on 7/28/14 at 2:46 pm|
I've always been amazed at how many guys just can't draw a bow back. I was doing it at 15 while my dad's buddies couldn't do it at 45. I still have friends that work out all of the time who can't pull a bow back.
Do you guys need to practice, or is it just a natural motion? ...
| O-T Lounge|| How stupid are the owners/managers at car dealerships? - Hammertime on 7/26/14 at 2:28 pm|
Twice this week I went to go look at different trucks only to find out that the owner of the dealership took them to a meeting or out of town on vacation. Come to find out, they used them as everyday vehicles. I mean, if you're gonna have a dealership and cars for sale, at least have the damn things...
| O-T Lounge|| I have officially lost all interest in Dynamics - Hammertime on 7/24/14 at 10:10 am|
I liked it for the first half of the semester, but the teacher just makes it boring as hell and teaches directly from the book. Probably doesn't help that the class is 3 hours long either. Made a B on the first test and a D on the second, both un-curved. Doesn't look like this one will go so well.
| O-T Lounge|| Good jewelry shop in New Orleans/Metairie to bring Rolex - Hammertime on 7/23/14 at 4:23 pm|
My clasp needs to be tightened, face polished, and I need a tune-up on my Datejust. Are there any places that'll do good work and not rob me blind around Metairie or New Orleans? I know they have to be certified, but don't know how to find out who is without calling every jewelry shop.
I am expe...

And now Metairie
Only other place I'd consider living would ...
| O-T Lounge|| Do you ever find yourself amazed with today's technology? - Hammertime on 7/21/14 at 12:19 pm|
I turned 30 a month ago, so I grew up during the developmental stages of everything, but as I was driving yesterday, wifi tethering my phone to a touch-screen laptop, looking at traffic in another city, and I was thinking,"Damn, this is crazy where we are now"...
| Outdoor Board|| Do you enjoy watching hunting shows? - Hammertime on 7/15/14 at 8:20 am|
Fishing shows are cool because they do the same exact things that I could. I woke up this morning to a dude deer hunting on a pristine farm with a guide right next to him. After that, a guy was in Africa hunting antelopes, and now they are hunting a cape buffalo.
I just think this shite is ridicu...
| Outdoor Board|| Anyone replaced all steering/suspension joints on a GM truck? - Hammertime on 7/14/14 at 10:29 pm|
Test drove a 04 2500 4wd with a 6.0/4L80E in it today. Motor and tranny were absolutely flawless. Ran just as good as a brand new truck and pulled hard. Truck was straight as a carbon arrow. All panels aligned perfectly, etc. Only had one problem though(well I guess a bunch).
All of the joints w...
| Outdoor Board|| Don't leave your GD blower out in the rain - Hammertime on 6/30/14 at 5:13 pm|
My Stihl blower is from 2000, and hasn't given me a lick of trouble. Wasn't completely under the carport this weekend and it rained. Well, I get done cutting a yard today and the bastard wouldn't even come close to starting.
So I go back to the house, and spend a damn hour troubleshooting it. Wa...
| O-T Lounge|| Why do hipsters want to act poor? - Hammertime on 6/22/14 at 6:14 pm|
I saw some the other day walking through a shitty neighborhood looking at a map like they were actually reading it, but they both had their iPhones in their hands. Is it northern white guilt? Is it cool to be poor now? Is it cool to act/look trashy?
I understand that they wanna act poor, but it i...
| O-T Lounge|| Is the guy at the 4-way by Seigen Lowe's actually working for Wounded Warriors? - Hammertime on 6/21/14 at 11:43 am|
Just drove by and had to stop at the 4-way in the middle of the shopping center. There is an older guy out there saluting every car and handing out those little plastic American flags. He has two small Wounded Warrior signs, but his uniform looks like he got it at the Army Surplus.
I don't mind ...

I work in some pretty poor neighborhoods around the New Orleans metro area, and probably 20% of the houses have solar panels on the roof. It's weird as frick and I can't figure it out
My parents got and estimate for solar panels on their house for $40k. I know people in the shitty hoods don't hav...
