Computer Science is all about trying to find the right wrench to bang in the right screw. - T.Cumbo? @ 11:00 pm

Angie I just got back from a weekend at the beach. First time in a long time I've been to my grandfather's beach house. Seeing as his evil wife wouldn't let us go. It was a good time, and we even ended up helping out SOLV for a while on Saturday. The weather was so so, but it was pretty decent today.

We even ended up driving into Seaside to check out things. Angie and I played some mad ski ball and air hockey. We spent about $3 to win 43 tickets, which was enough to trade in for a postcard and two things of smarties. After we got back Jason and Ben helped me push Angie's car to the mechanic. Some belt came off her car and some gear/pulley system is messed up. I didn't want to pay for a tow truck so we just pushed it six blocks. Now I have to get up early to take the guy the keys and explain why the car is there. Good thing I had tomorrow off.

Oh the todo list for tomorrow is to install the 160 gig HD I bought for my XBox. So far I've used my XBox to play F-Zero. Oh yes!

Ya... I have an Xbox because I got it from a guy at work because it was broken. I had a guy mod it, and now it works fine and I can play games stored on the HD.

I got it just so I could screw Microsoft some more :)

"Some belt came off her car and some gear/pulley system is messed up."

Prolly either the Fan belt or the Timing belt. Would only take ya like 30min to get back on yourself. Just takes a prybar and socket wrench. Shoulda called me. Had whole day off on Sunday :)

I just dropped it off at the mechanic and he said it's her "serpentine" belt. It's the only belt in her car I guess. Anyway the tension rod/gear/pulley whatever broke. The bolt that holds it to the engine snapped. Sucks. He's gonna look at it and let me know.

Doh, that sucks.
Vehicles that don't have buncha belts(i.e. Fan/Water pump/Timing) just have 1 huge belt, Serpentine. Those are lovely mazes of fun tryin to get it on in the right pattern :D

That's great that you got to spend some time at the beach! What made your Grandfather's wife change her mind and allow you to go there?

Well it works for me :) I never really liked her, she was quite a mean woman.
