And I Always Thought I'd Go Blind!

The best research Australia has to offer

Does it ever stop?

After we got back from San Francisco, while loading the bags in my car, I saw that I had a taillight out. The next day (actually, same day since we got in so late) I went to get Angus from M in Dawsonville. On the way aback I noticed my car wasn't heating up. I started to freak out because the head gaskets area rather easy to blow out in these cars and that could cause it to run low enough on antifreeze that the sensor wouldn't read. I checked it out and the fluids weren't mixed, but I did notice that when I stopped for lights, the car would warm up. Well, that made it easy to diagnose the problem: thermostat. Last night I replaced the thermostat.

On the way back from Dawsonville, there were a couple of times when I thought the clutch was slipping. But then it would run fine. Today though, it started slipping real bad and I could smell it burning (smells like hot brakes). So now I get to buy a new clutch setup. And who knows how long it will take long it will take to do this job. At least when I did all the work on the head I did a lot of cleaning, so maybe it won't be so bad.

Post Comps Push

Even though I took my comprehensive exams (part 1) in mid March, I won't here from my committee until the end of April. Many would think this is the time for a nice break. Umm, no. Now I have "time" to do all the stuff I didn't do while I was working on studying. Luckily, there has been time for non school related work, but there's been very little actual free time. But don't feel bad for me. I'm finally getting a chance to watch an F1 race without also working on school work at the same time. And I get to go to San Francisco on Wednesday for a conference.
