Haiku review of Star Trek TNG:
Teleport beams across the autumn night
the future is full of marvels
still no cure for baldness

With version 29, Mozilla Firefox caved to corporate and "social justice" pressures to change for the sake of change, forsaking its users, their opinions, and free speech. Do not use it anymore. Instead, Pale Moon gets back to core ideals of Firefox when it was born as "Phoenix": Lightweight, efficient, and user-focused.
www.Rotary13B1.com is a great shop that sells all kinds of Mazda Rotary Engine themed goodies, some parts and supplies, jewelry, t-shirts, and some stuff for other cars. I've bought a bunch of things from them over the years and have been very happy with both the quality and the service. Please consider giving them your business. (I don't get any compensation for recommending them.)
CommaFeed is the best RSS Feed reader I have ever used. Ive tried them all. Much better than Google Reader was. Simpler, cleaner, faster than the competitors. You can either use it for free by signing up at CommaFeed, or host it on your own server using the Free (as in speech) Apache-licensed code from GitHub.
Hitachi TRK-6700H Operating Guide
Original users manual for the Hitachi TRK-6700H FM/SW/AM radio and cassette tape recorder boom box I bought in 1985. It was red. Whatever they used to make the plastic red caused it to eventually become so brittle that it crumbled in my hands in 2009. Its in the trash now.
Corvette Chaser - The Mothership Has Landed.
"Wagons are built to haul things. This Wagon was built to haul ass!!!"
The coolest station wagon ever made was built by GM test engineers to keep up with pre-production Corvettes on cross-country shakedown trips. A few key Corvette components were transplanted into the White Whale, along with some beefier suspension bits from GMs parts bin. It foreshadowed the 1994 to 1996 B-bodies and Impala SS that got an even more powerful engine straight from the Corvette as a regular production option. Unfortunately the original Corvette Chaser was never given a proper VIN by GM, so while it still exists and is in the hands of a collector, it can never be driven on the streets again.
