    I hope not. I used to have a maytag front loader (Around 2004 with a touchscreen which was fairly new technology for washers and dryers), cost an arm and a leg and it SPEWED water all over the place. Upon further inspection they installed all of the seals incorrectly and there were some minor gaps. I will stick to Whirlpool now (Although I think whirlpool owns maytag now).

    Top. I know front loaders are more efficient but I have enough trouble getting clothes out of the back of the dryer.

    My house is old so I run 6' s/s water lines from a deep sink to the washer. I like to stay for the first load to make sure the hoses and drain don't leak.

    I took a short ride this morning and went over a pretty big hill I'd been meaning to try. On the descent I was really letting the bike fly; no idea what my speed was but it was higher than I've experienced in many years. Naturally, this is the moment a squirrel decides to sprint across the road and, as squirrels do, turn midway and try to run back. I laid on my front brakes HARD as I shifted my weight over the rear wheel. As I'm doing this and still probably going 25+ mph, my rear wheel lifts off the ground and just hovers there until I finally released the front brakes. So I (barely) avoided the squirrel and also got to do a high speed reverse wheelie. I also learned that my old Dia Compe cantilevers are plenty adequate.

    Yikes!

    So will you be trying the reverse wheelie again now that you know how to survive?

    I got super-wet on the way in, but we need the rain, so I find it acceptable.

    Dealing with an issue on the support cluster while doing a full upgrade of the dev cluster. Hopefully I get everything done before my next meeting.

    Yeah, I figure if I practice regularly I should have it mastered in a year or so.

    Recompiling the kernel on a slackware VM and watching a load-testing exercise from the safety of our APM system. Also waiting for the managers to decide when to upgrade the other app server environments... they can't decide.

    I am trying to get an adhoc report run for someone on the west coast. The database is not co-operating.
    Technically, I think it's more of a LAN issue than the database.

    It couldn't possibly be the database.

    We had major network issues on Tuesday....things haven't run the same since. My pipeline seems to be about 1/10th the bandwidth it was prior to Tuesday's event.

    Procrastinating getting ready for a business trip tomorrow morning. Still have to pack, and pick up my computer from work. Work lately has been all-consuming, and I feel like my summer is quickly slipping away.

    Don't hold your breath. We only got 0.10". Could've used a couple inches.

    Haha It ends up we only got a small drizzle overnight...Chilly morning (55 degrees in Michigan) considering it is usually around 70 by then. I would rather have that than being soaked

    About the same here in Chicago. It has been oddly mild so far this summer. I like it. Knock on wood.

    I'm off the next three days, so it's job search time for me. The current job gets me by and is easy money, but it's about time I get something a little more my age.

    I'm second in command at a small retail shop, mindless work. Very little room for advancement, and no chance of full time/benefits. Hoping to get a job at a greenhouse or nursery to get my feet wet in that field while I'm going for my degree.
