Update on my vehicle/home trouble. I had to drop $400 for the registration this month, and the check engine light is still on due to a glow plug needing to be replaced. The CHEAPEST estimate I've found for the labor is $350+tax, and that's with me already having the replacement part and no guarantee of that actually being the final price. Any mechanic in this area who will work on an older diesel vehicle wants you to sign a paper that says you are paying for a repair ATTEMPT.

Glow plug replacement is a process notorious for "whoops I fucked it up and now need thousands in repairs" types of problems, so most mechanics won't touch it.

As a reminder for perspective: I live on $900/month in one of the most expensive locations in the country.

SorO being banned means one of the few campaigns I'd been playing in here has lost a DM. Shame, too, I was having fun with that one.

Nooooooooooooooooooooo he's like one of my favorite people here Soro was really nice and great and helpful and knows shit and I'm so mad at him for this  :banghead

That damned lovable idiot needs to learn to just suck it up and not respond to something sometimes :shakefist


Well, I'm done ranting. I hope I'm not in trouble for ranting about banned peeps in the angry thread -_-'

To quote Agita "You can tell SorO that if he doesn't consider literally every interaction with me other than the one time I fished some deleted posts out of google cache in the entire last several years sufficient warning that's part of the reason he's out."
