I'm over here working for REC's other solar cell factory.
I got like two weeks notice to get ready to go to singapore to work.
They say my expertise with silicon wafer inspection is next to none in the world, so I've been training some operators to do the work that I do in Norway.
I'll explain more in my "worst day of my life" thread when I get home.
Oh, and btw, I think this is the first time i've seen a pagani zonda cabriolet, 2 lambo gallardo's, and like 10 bentley continentals, a couple of maserati quattroporte's, two audi R8's (V10!!!) , a maybach, a couple of new Ferraris, numerous porsche's and a lotus exige IN ONE DAY!!!!!
And, its like one degree above the equator, so it's HOT!
Us vikings aren't used to this heat. 35 deg celsius every day and like 80% humidity. :aflac:

funky you arent going to oz are you? my moms 35,000ft in the air headed for melbourne. left this afternoon and wont be there till midnite friday. (left from london heathrow). bring concord back i say! :lol:

I'm going to frankfurt, then norway tomorrow evening unfortunately.
And the flight time is terrible. 12 hours from singapore to frankfurt is horrible in economy class. (cheapass company that wouldnt let me get business class)
But, fortunately it is singapore air, so the standard is pretty good.
I got a boeing 777-300 on the way over here, and I'm getting a 747 for the return trip. I just hope the standard is the same.

This is the factory I'm visiting btw:

The supercars were lined up outside the expensive hotels down that street. The stores in the malls (witch were innumerable btw) was all like prada, louis vitton, armani, zara, and so on.
Basically all the most expensive shops in the world was gathered in this street that was many miles long. It blew me away basically.

+1 regarding Mrs. Oggy. Hope it's a smooth and easy procedure. Is it simply joint deterioration or is it a case of osteonecrosis?

So, I'm investigating Kahler hybrid tremolos for my first four guitar builds, and there are reports that there is a serious tuning stability issue with them. (It's called a "hybrid" because it's lockable to act as a fixed bridge, too. Floyds don't do that.) Downloading YT vids asplainin' it. If this is the case, then it sucks royally. The Kahler trems appeal to me on a number of points. For one, they require a moderately shallow routing scheme - FRs require a route to go clear through the body with another huge pool on the back for the springs to operate. Another is that hybrid scheme where I can use it as a trem or a hardtail by just moving a pin. Thirdly, I can get Kahlers in 6-, 7- and 8-string varieties. FRs are limited to sixes and sevens. If I want an 8-string Kahler I have to find someone that can machine one for me, and that'll probably be a $1,000 tremolo. :nono: I don't think there would be much reason for me to build an eight unless it was an experiment, so that's not really a major sticking issue. At any rate, my hope is that whatever the perceived issue is that it can be negated or compensated for.

Now, if I had no choice but to go with a Floyd, I'd love to use the Ibanez variation called the ZR (Zero Resistance). They're made in six- and seven-string varieties, but the only way to snag one of those is to get it through Ibanez directly. Ibanezparts.com has them on occasion, and understandably they're not cheap. I also can't get them in lefties, and that's a serious problem for me. (I'm not left-handed, but my younger bro is.)

Had a cousin with that in her knee. I don't recall what they did for it. It seems like it involved arthroscopy and a bone-graft because she didn't have a joint replacement. The hip joints are structurally different. Quality of life is what's important. The good thing about the joint replacement is she'll be away from the pain. :nice:

Man Ebay just ****es me off, the people there all want everything to be in mint shape but they want poor condition pricing. I sold a guy a week ago a set of four RC4WD Crushers, I bought them from 1badxj on here for 20, I sold them and 4 NIB Losi memeory foams for 20 plus 6 buck for shippinf the friggin go nad emails me and says there are small wear marks and cuts in the side wall. No crap sherlock, I said they were used twice, here's the exact description from the listing.

Four 1.9 Rock Crusher tires from RC4WD, used twice, plus four NIB losi memory foams, not pictured.

Does that sound like they are going to be factory fresh to anyone? I told him the dumb idiot to send them back and I'll refund his money. I can't deal with stupid people anymore.:banghead: I hope hes a member here and reads this so I can give him a piece of my mind.

Speaking of tire cuts and wear, the tire on my truck today blew out the tread. I've never seen that happen before. I bought my F150 with these tires and they must have been re-treads because the tread just flew off. What do you know, I pulled my jack out of my truck this morning too. Luckly I still had enough of a tire to creep the next 2 miles the the Mobil station and use their's. I scratched my head for about 15 minutes trying to figure how I was going to lower the spare with no crank. That's when I remembered the crank is under the hood.

don't get me started on ebay, i've just sold my trail truck an hour ago on there, i was actually considering blocking the person who bought it.

the sent me 21 questions before buying it, they wanted me to tell them where to get a manual for it, well it's a custom build, there isn't a manual, they wanted the paint codes and where to buy the paint, even though i said it came without electrics, they want the gearbox shift servo leaving in, etc...

Crap. A 12' x 12' area for jus' me onesey would be more room than I have now. Unless it was sharing space with my bed, etc., then it's only marginally more than I have currently, and that's not enough.

Squeezed in here is my computer desk, the MS2k, guitar amp stacked on top of bass amp, V-drums, conga drums, a massive ball of tangled wires and cords. Somewhere in this mess is a mixer, 4 track, a peddle board and proccessors. As is I can't really use anything other than a place to stack these empty beer cans. Musically they've become nothing more than expensive paper waits and drink coasters. You should see my garage. It's amazing how I get anything done out there.

Hows it going guys. Good here, So in March my Brother in law, bought a DELL laptop 1500 series, not sure of exact model. Anyway he has been letting me use it at home for my College on line classes. Anyway, Thursday morning I'm using it, no problems, shut it down, then went to use it again Thursday Night and nothing, called DELL customer service, in India, of course. and they tell me the Hard drive is toast. WTF??? The Hardrive just goes **** up in the water for no reason, now that is quality there.

Tard Drives do that. The HD in my eMac did it. The only HD that's cacked on me that gave me some warning was the HD in my dad's computer. A good backup routine is the only way to deal with crises like this. Have you tried any recovery software to see if you can retrieve any data?

I have been a lot better. My brother is not doing well at all so. I feel it is just a matter of time. I just got another shipment from Tower in and I am trying to figure out how in the world I am going to make this all work in the Datsun. I have been very busy at work and summer is almost over for the kids and missus. The missus has been working on her masters degree so I have been having to wait until she finished.

On a much different story...My brother told my mom and her BF that he knew he was not going to be able to finish his jeep on the way back from a chemo treatment about 2 months ago. Her BF took it upon himself to go ahead and buy him a Jeep that would run so he could hopefully enjoy one for at least a little bit. Anyway, he bought David a 1975 CJ-5, and unfortunately, David will probably not ever get to ride in it. Anyway, the story takes a happy turn. David Asked me to bring the boys over and see the Jeep and take them for a spin in it. Connor and I went over yesterday afternoon and I showed him the Jeep. Mom's BF was out there and asked me "Did you know this thing has headers?" LOL Connor climbed in, I fired it up and rumbled the exhaust several times and we were off. I took him for a 5 minute ride (not registered) and we made it back to the house. David asked Connor if he enjoyed the ride and he told him all about it. Windshield down, spinning the tires, loud exhaust, the whole bit. I walked in and he had a big grin and asked how I liked it. I told him it would do and then asked if he could hear it. He said it sounds pretty good doesn't it?

MM,
He is really weak right now. He had a pretty bad seizure two weeks ago and lost the function of his right hand and right leg. After he left the hospital, he was walking alright. He would move his leg forward and would buckle his knee so he could put weight on his leg and not collapse. He then had to start using a walker while doing the same thing and as of last night, he needed to make the switch to a wheelchair. He can stand with assistance, but he can't shuffle his right foot to walk anymore. He does not have the strength to hold on and the Jeep is quite peppy. When he leaves this world, I don't want it to be from me going around a corner. I have to LOL on that one because he would do the same.

Thanks MM, I do appreciate it. I went over this evening to help David go from the chair in the living room to his bed (last few nights) and was surprised to see that a hospital bed was put in the living room. A home health care nurse come by this morning and I think after they got him his bed, they will be stopping by 3-4 times throughout the day from here on out. On the way out of the house, I spoke with his daughter and told her my idea about filming the run and she really liked it. So I think we are going to do that tomorrow afternoon.

I guess I may have to post it up on youtube once it is done.
