    As far as I'm aware neither one of the new systems do. I never thought to use them for that though. I usually just plug my phone into my headset and play music while I'm killing shit in multiplayer. Can't tell you the last time I ever used a CD.

    Fucking A / C is out again. It fucks up every 2 years. Talked to a friend of mine last night and he's hoping it's not the compressor. Every time before it has always been a capacitor but I took the cover off last night and the capacitor looks perfect and not blown. Price to replace the entire unit is around $4000 which I'm almost inclined to do because I'm sick of this piece of shit Lennox we have.

    Only silver lining is it is 49 right now with a high of 80 today.

    Nope. Perfect weather recently. It does this every two years since we've been here. The blower in the attic and the fan outside seem to be working fine. The insulated line coming into the house is the same temp as the outside temp so it is not blowing cold air. I'm hoping it's something simple as a capacitor but I've got a bad feeling about this since everything is running this time. Usually when a capacitor goes out one of the 2 fans stop working. I took the covers off last night and they looked perfect. All the wiring looks perfect also. If it's the compressor the I figure I'm about to un-ass a large sum of money.

    Lennox sucks, get a Trane.

    Morning guys.

    Went out with this chic I met on Tinder last night. Got there, sat down and she turned to look at me. I about shit myself, I swear I thought I was looking at my ex-GF. Here name even starts with a K, ex is Kelly, she is Kacie. WTF

    She's cute though so I will probably see her again.

    Other than that nothing new in ND. Still waiting on my shotgun. Having a hard time deciding if I should get these:

    Pro Comp 5001 16"

    [​IMG]

    Or this:

    Glock 19 Gen 4
    [​IMG]

    I need new tires soon, and I have been waiting for the ones on there to wear out. Although its not urgent yet, I have a bit of life in them yet and since I am not driving it much I have time for that.

    Morning. Had therapy yesterday so today is my lazy day.

    Always liked the km2 mud terrains. They always look beefier when they are mounted.
    Thought about them myself but I drive to indiana a few times a year so I would need an extra set for street.

    Edit: Love my Glock 36 but I miss my double stack G30.
    A buddy has an original G19 with the tupperware box.

    No ducking shit. I grew up watching that garbage.
    SUUUUCK. Amazing when our appliances go south on us, they totally disrupt out lives and go to the top of the list. It's a thin line between tolerable daily life and total anarchy in the wilderness.
    As long as she doesn't' sound or act like your ex....

    Kinda have to figure tires and wheels simultaneously. Not sure if you've done the research yet, but you can run into some frustrating size availability issues.

    And...will they fit? LOL.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I'm not done! Need Maxtrax!
    Never had them. However, I recall people talking about issues with poor ice/snow traction (maybe it was just ice), and the lack of siping being an issue. IIRC. Seems like this might be a concern in ID. Maybe you should ask those Idaho Not In the PNW Hillbillies for some regional input. They seem to have tried everything in the world, and then started inventing their own shit.

    Rims and tires will be a together purchase. I did ask the Idaho Campfire guys. Brady runs the KM2's, he said he has been through a couple sets, so if he has gone through them a couple times then he must be happy with them.

    Agreed... This has been a shit A/C since we moved in. When it works it works great but every other year it shits out on us.


    Compressor failure is my guess. If that's the case it's time for a new unit which will run.... Fuck who knows???


    It's hard to complain too much because I've had pretty good luck with everything else. I just don't want to spend multiple thousands of dollars on shit that shouldn't break every two fucking years. Fuck owning a home.

    Hmmmm.....interresting. Thanks Rob. Do you have them? Thoughts? The price is the same give or take $10 per tire, and I'm not one to quibble on that.
    I like the look, not quit as knobbered as the KM2's, I guess it just comes down to performance.
