Choco-Santa delivered some more stuff this week.  My butane cooker, four cans of butane, two purple director's chairs, and some things I actually NEED for the project: bolts for the TV mount and little rubber booties to cover the big bolt-on electrical connections from the Continuum Transfunctioner to the Oscillation Overthruster... umm, I mean battery charger and isolator.


Oh, and I hung the TV Sunday... sort of.  I drilled some holes and poked bolts through them, then stuck the TV on to see if the size was going to be acceptable.  Hmm, "acceptable" is as good a word as any to describe the future TV viewing situation.  I'd like for it to be bigger (said the actress to the bishop) but it is what it is.

Stranger still, he has had multiple smart phones. But they each pissed him off enough to get smashed.  :rofl:

Yarp.  I have ZERO tolerance for technology when it doesn't work.

I come here for the technical and scientific description of work being done.

Trust me, you DO NOT want me trying to take/post pictures on... well, anywhere!  All I'm good for is finding a similar thing on the googles and linking a picture.  For example, this is the phone I use.  Pictures are not its strong suit!



Aaaand, I just realized that was NOT the part you were bustin' my balls over.

I went to the shop yesterday (Sunday) and had a look at that rear door which has been giving us grief.  The pokey-uppy thing which locks the door to the van was free to flop about and would get stuck.  I made a little guide thingy and installed it and now it works a treat... ok, it needs a bit of break-in to Clarence one of the sides, but it works better than before.  I'll try to remember to have someone take a picture of it in the near future.
