My truck is a V6 but it mostly runs on five cylinders. The CEL cycles from on, to flashing, to off in open loop mode. Basically, the ECU runs out of memory to store all of the fault codes and resets. I was driving across the I90 bridge today when it reset for the first time in a while. I kept it at about 4500 RPM all the way to the end of 520 and hit the smog check station. Guy plugged in the OBDII harness, shut it off, fired it up, shut it off, and said “you passed.” I got about a block away and bang, CEL light on. No matter. I’ve been sweating getting my plate renewed and coincidence took care of that hurdle. Here’s to two more years of sub-par gas mileage.
I finally dug in enough to get TF2 and DK2 working together. Of course, I had this bout of git-er-done while I was sitting around at home, sick. It isn’t a great idea to play 3D games that are known for triggering motion sickness when you’re getting over whatever it is. Ugh.
The weirdest thing about it is it takes about an hour for me to get over the feeling of playing about five minutes or so. I now must figure out how to get contacts in so I can play in focus.
I was reminded of the billboards Miller plastered the bay area with in the 90s:
“It’s time for a good old macro-brew,” was a Miller advertising campaign in the late 1990’s for their Miller Genuine Draft label. Figuring that people were becoming either tired or confused by the wide variety of choices between the major brands, the imports and the microbrews, Miller tried to remove the decision-making problem from the beer-drinking process. They mocked the taste and quality oriented ads of Jim Koch and the microbrews with phrases like, “it’s time for better beer breath.” “You know what kind of beer we are, we won’t surprise you,”
NovaScotiaRobots: Short of calling us Prius-driving, Chardonnay-sipping, kale-munching commies, I think it’s pretty clear what sort of image they’re trying to create around craft-beer drinkers.
If that’s the kind of thing we’re supposed to care about, though, it’ll be kind of an uphill battle for them to convince me it’s manlier to drink a Budweiser than a 120 IBU double IPA or a 13.9% barrel-aged imperial stout.
The_Pope_of_Dope: “IF YA DON’T DRINK BUDWEISER YOU’RE A GOD DAMN QUEER” –Budweiser
nuncprosunc: “WHY DON’T YOU GET THAT DICK OUT OF YOUR MOUTH AND PUT US IN IT?” –Budweiser
NoFuturist: “HEY DUNGEONMASTER, PUT DOWN THAT SNIFTER AND DRINK THIS UNTIL YOU PUNCH A GIRL” –Budweiser
CupcakeUnicorn: “People who drink budweiser are people who love to drink beer” is what had me laughing….jesus fuck why not just say “NOBODY WILL JUDGE YOU FOR BUYING IT LIKE THEY WOULD A STEEL RESERVE!”
I filed a bug in July 2014 that is caused by Xcode over-parsing output of build tools. This breaks our CI systems and creates load on developers asking for exceptions. The radar is 17839697 if you have access.
If you’d like to repro the bug yourself, try this:
xcodebuild is examining the output of build tools looking for errors. Strings with a distinct format will trigger an error, stopping the build.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install any version of Xcode version 5.1 forward
2. file->new project->OS X->other->external build system
3. take defaults on first screen
4. build tool is “echo”
5. arguments are [:13: 2] (no square brackets, no quotes)
6. build (clover-b)
7. clean build
7. build breaks.
8. examine errors: detects :13: 2 as an error, build is broken
