The car is coming back
I heard from Dan this morning: The intercooler is back in Austin, and is being put back in the car. It should be ready before lunch today. The total is under $200, which is far less than I feared it would be.

Between that and the great Molten Core raid last night (yes, that's World of Warcraft stuff, sorry), I'm quite happy today. It will be so great to be back in my wonderful little car. I've missed the thing so much.

Current Mood: jubilant jubilant
Current Music: Server fans

Bah, we got our butts repeatedly kicked by Baron Geddon last night. The guy leading the raid -refuses- to listen to reason and change his strategy. His strategy:

* Everyone stand on the same spot.
* 1 or 2 tanks keep the Baron away from the group.
* If you are the bomb, run away from the group.

... thus ensuring that any single dumb*@$ can wipe the raid. We are all saying that we want to form a circle to minimize bomb wipes. Anyways, just had to get that off my chest. :)

Wow that is impressive, considering shipping and all too.

I'm sure it doesn't include shipping. They have things they need to take to Bell every so often, and so John drives down and does the shipping himself (John is one of the two main mechanics at the shop). Or, at least, when the intercooler went down there, I know John hand delivered it. Still, rebuilding an intercooler isn't child's play.

I guess this means we won't see you for a week - you'll be out burning up the roads. Congrats on getting your baby back in one piece.

Yes, the cost is quite low. I suspect you'd pay more for it around here, like with everything else. Nice to see that you have your baby back! :)
