Re: OMG - I Can Buy My Childhood

Bought my WADOT transfer permit and going to check it out tomorrow. Either a waste of 10 to 12 hours or pure giddy joy

Re: OMG - I Can Buy My Childhood

I'm wrestling on where to put it - we don't "need" four cars but this is a good deal.

Re: iPhone 6 sets sales record despite glitches

Let me cautiously say, the iPhone 5 was a bit ... meh ... from a differentiation from the 4. Now I know some will translate this as M46 sad the 5 was a failure.

No.

But there wasn't big huge compelling reasons to jump from a 4 to 5 [more]

Re: Apple store still down at 00:48

Verizon site is completely unusable and the Apple store is still down at 12:52 AM PDT.

Absolutely no luck with a chat session on Verizon to order.

Big ball of suck - I'm getting ready to go to bed.

So Which To Get 6 Or 6 Plus

I'm a, "I need to touch it first" kind of person - and I'm looking at the dimensions of the 6 Plus - and thinking it is roughly the size of a dollar bill (stress - ROUGHLY) - a bit wider and a bit longer, but close.

Camry

We bought it - $1800 - seriously, I've driven 6 month old rental cars with 20K miles on them that handled and rode worse.

Agreed To Work Not Completed As Part Of Closing

So some work as agreed to by the sellers was not completed on the house we jointly purchased. Seattle may be known for rain, but people don't realize we have very dry summers. This year has been odd in that we have had two major rain events (not that [more]

Looking At A '97 Camry To Buy

No, this isn't a troll post - for real. I never said all Toyota's were bad, I have said that '97 was the last year of the Toyota's deserving of the Toyota reputation of value, content, AND reliability.

Re: Seriously, Toyota?

For what ever it is worth, there isn't a bad car in the D-segment and I would strongly recommend to cross shop other brands.

In this case, it was easy to get past the user's own passwords, and it might have been from other accounts that they got the information. I'll bet those that had their photos exposed, have had some other assets exposed as well.

Re: Potential Security Breach - Celebrity Photos

Re: Oil change

Our last car was an '07 Corolla

Curious on why you went from Toyota to Hyundai - and went from '07 to '03.

I get the Sonata is bigger - but curious if there was any other thought process here.
