    Slide Scanners

    Mrs. Shamaal has run out of things to do with her time, so I recommended she scan 40 years of slides and photos before they decay any further. At one time I had settled on the Nikon Coolscan V @ $600. Looking them up now, it appears they are no longer in production. The replacement seems to...

    Anyone have any experience with these? Mrs Shamaal doesn't want her tootsies getting cold and even though she has a new titanium knee doesn't want to bend over to push the light button. What I'm looking for are fake logs with a remote igniter for vented natural gas. Right now they're...

    Differentials aren't only in calculus

    Well poop, it's always the stuff I know nothing about. Turn left at a stoplight outside work parking lot and hear a crunching sound in front. Pull into the parking lot at work, look under the car and a couple drops of oil are under the front differential. All in all the car had about two...

    1991 Ford Explorer Heater Bypass Valve Installation

    I thought of this several years ago and a recent post showed it could be done. On the 91 & 92 Mazda Navajos, there is no shutoff on the heaters.

    Broken seat part

    My driver's side seat hasn't been adjustable lately. Closer inspection shows the bracket is busted at the left rear at the point shown in the picture. The questions are: how do I go about replacing this? Do I have to replace the entire seat or is there something I can bend and remount the seat?

    Server Busy

    I suppose I'm not the only one receiving massive amounts of server busy messages. I assume it's either a software problem or we're under attack. Even the Smiley page says try again later. :eek: If there's a different IE6 setting now required, let me know.

    Rear Brake Lock

    Spooky! I was reading a thread last week regarding the ABS locking up under certain conditions. After a panic stop this afternoon, I couldn't move - I thought the clutch/transmission had given out. After stalling and restarting it went away. I was able to create the problem in my driveway...
