What are you one of those punch card babies? Just remember, all of your hard work is for some idiot to do this


How do those momentous years feel now? Unlike you, I spent my youth playing games and Log-writer, and Oregon Trail. No duck face can mess with that!

(For that matter, the Internet (as ARPANET) predates the Domain Name System by many years.)

I spent my youth coding and playing games as well. Nothing like spending your childhood doing something you'll be doing when you're an adult.

I always knew that computers were my thing. While being an astronaut would have been cool, I didn't aspire for that. While being a firefighter would be cool, I didn't aspired for that. I just loved computers too much. In college I realized that programming was not for me. But, I still loved computers. Now I am a program manager in software development

Well you know, that's uh, kind of following your dream. You're still there in the end.

And that's all that matters.

That evening I searched every thread on all the Corvette forums, and found that if you use cheap gas, this will happen to your car, and to fix it, get some Techron, or run a tank of Top Tier through it. I knew of a Shell Station close to my home so i did that early the next day. About 2 miles from the station where I filled I topped it off at, the needle awoke, and all has been fine ever since. I will run a 20 oz. bottle of Techron through every oil change which is about 5,000 miles. All my best wrenches swear by it!

Good to know that Exxon has made the list, but I'm not sure if we have any left in the Boston area.

Last time I saw the top tier list, Sunoco Canada made the list but not Sunoco. Shell is the only one we can get! Top Tier used to be Known as the BMW Standard.

Best,

Bluemill
