I played around with qik for about a week. Then last weekend I put it to good use:

Update:Somehow this last video wasn’t uploaded the day I took it. Instead it showed up on qik 2 days ago.

Winter is here!

This is what your car will look like after you’ve driven for 3 hours in a snow storm.
But if you’re like me, you probably enjoyed most of the drive!

No more nightly updates

I was very busy with packing for a trip last night, and couldn’t do my nightly update. I gave it some more thought and came to the conclusion that in all likelihood I couldn’t keep it up anyway. So, I’m going to stop calling them “night cap”s and just put a random post on whenever I get a chance – I guess this is no different than before!

After buying an espresso machine recently, I thought I was all set for my caffeine fix. But I realized today that the other half of the equation is the grind otherwise you just can’t make good espresso. I got some stuff from a cafe nearby and the difference from the stuff I bought last week is like night and day!

Following my problems with the battery, I bought a new battery and went about installing it. Here are the simple steps (that took me about 45 minutes to complete):

  1. disconnect the current battery
  2. unmount the current battery
  3. mount the new battery
  4. connect the new one

And now: Car 1 – Khosrow 1

update: here are some links where other people have chronicled similar battery problems they were having.
