Wait, I'm not supposed to boil the rice with it in it? It's been simmering on low on the back burner since Sunday. I even put a little Thai Sweet Chili sauce in there because it looked so plain.

And so it begins its weeklong rice bath after a nice baptism by distilled water. I'll post the results in a week.

And perhaps the lesson here is take only the mechanical key to the beach and lock the fob inside the car once the key is removed from it. The key can go swimming.

Of course I have to blame her. She should have known it was in my pocket. :tsk:

I'll give it a try, since it's no good now other than for starting. And I'll test the battery as well.

+1 for this. Couple drops of silicone work great. It's waterproof, won't hurt the paint, and can be broken if needed. And the piece won't go anywhere.

Same here. I also reversed the center switch action so pushing down opens the roof and pulling up closes it, similar to the regular windows.
