Greased the grease fittings on my sway bar end links for the first time. This is my first grease gun. Put it together on Thursday. It comes with this $30 locking grease coupler. It's always good to learn something new. It's definitely improved my noisy suspension.
I was opening up my case on the main rig to swap in a DVD drive. Nothing is easy about that in today's cases. The Lian-Li made me uninstall the bracket from the case that housed the DVD drive even though I could release the DVD drive and slide it around. Same thing with the Fractal Design. Couldn't easily take out the BluRay drive and put in the DVD drive. Ended up just laying the DVD drive on the spinners in the front. I was trying to read some DVD concert discs that wouldn't read with the BluRay drive. Turns out the DVD drive couldn't read them, either. I'll see if they play in the stand alone player in the living room, tomorrow. If they do, I guess I'll get some stickers I can mark the spine with to note their status.
Look how much dust had built up on the fans. Yes. I had to do some cleaning. The home server looked fairly clean. I did blow some compressed air there. I think tomorrow, I'm going to see if I can configure the XArcade controller to work with the M.A.M.E. emulator in the HTPC in the living room.
Got in my car to go to work today. Check engine light came on and the engine was rough. Grabbed my dongle. Ignition coil A was bad. Luckily, my friend was working from home and could take off to take me to the stealership, I mean dealership. $140 later, I now have a compatible ignition coil. Lame. Got home, installed the coil. Car starts up. Totally normal. No problems.
Decided to replace the plugs since I was off. Yeesh...
