The claim was opened

July 8, 2013

I got to work today and had a message from the other guy’s insurance company giving me a claim number for the accident on the 4th; so far, so good. All I want is to get the car fixed. I learned one thing; I’m not driving the ‘vette on holiday weekends anymore.

Catching up on things…

First things first; Dreamlinux development has ended. I closed the forum last January and that’s the end…No explanations and I may never know really why the devs gave up like that. I’m still running 5.0 along side Sabayon, Ubuntu Precise, Win7 Pro and Win8 and that’s enough hard drive madness for me.

It’s way too hot to be in the garage, so the trains have been out of the question. I did manage to get the backdrop positioned for mounting hardware and change the battery on the System One command station before the heatwave hit us. When it cools down I hope to finish the actuator setup I’ve dreamed up for the patio layout.

The ‘vette just recently went for a $1900.00 transmission rebuild and just the other day, I was read-ended on the way home from work! I’m getting a couple of estimates on the way home and I hope they don’t give me a hard time; it’s the second time “Flo” has paid a claim on this car.

WOW…has be it been a while since I’ve posted?

To be honest, it has..I could write a novel about the stuff that’s happened in the last year and a half, but this is not the time….I will update this again real soon and hopefully turn this into something useful.
