    Is that a legal vehicle? I only see the frame. Need to get back on the normal carrier. Roaming at 3g is not so good.

    Not a legal vehicle. Almost certainly a full race car with a tubular chassis and lightweight shell. But on that note my current daily isn't entirely legal in this state anyway....

    We are a family of three (Wife, kid, me). Therefore we only need one car that can seat 3, and one that can seat my kid and I. Bolting a child seat into the back of the cage seems entirely legit.

    I hung 18500 lumens of LED lighting in my garage on Saturday. It took about 10 hours to do all the necessary modifications, wiring, installation, and cleanup.



    Now it can be really bright for working on projects out there.



    The switch on the wall can control power to all of them. The 4 lights over the cars also have pull chains on them so they can be powered off even when the wall switch on since most of the time I don't need all that light when I step out there for a minute to put something in the trash or recycling bins. It's a big upgrade from the single bare 60W incandescent bulb that was on the ceiling before.

    Indeed. Typically, for me, me spending time in the garage is productive time. Anything that encourages me to spend more time in the garage is a good thing. Making it bright certainly helps.

    I ran into an issue with my desktop over the weekend which I found annoying. The issue related to Windows 10 not booting because the motherboard could not find the boot partition. Roughly about a month ago I did a clean install of Windows since it had been a while. My desktop had gone through a cycle of upgrades ranging from Windows 8 > Windows 8.1 > Windows 10 > Windows 10 updates, etc. I backed up all my stuff and did a secure erase on my SSD. Everything went fine and I did a clean install without issue. Fast-forward to Sunday, I was going through my files and I've migrated my data off of my last-remaining Samsung 1TB HDD. This drive has been giving me periodic SMART errors and the drive is long past it's prime. I forgot to check but I'd recon it has between 7-8 years of power on time so it owes me nothing.

    Once I removed this drive and rebooted, Windows would no longer boot and my system would go into the UEFI BIOS to help me located a boot drive. Long story short, when I did the clean install, windows chose to put that system partition on my 1TB drive so now I was fucked after removing this drive. I tried a bunch of the various boot sector repairs and and built-in repairs from Microsoft. I eventually gave up and did a clean install on a new SSD...this time with all other drives disconnected. I read several suggestions that recommended disconnecting all other drives because this situation can happen. I could still see my original boot drive after I reconnected it to the new OS install. I then copied all the data over and it wasn't a big deal but still very annoying. At least with modern CPUs and fast SSDs the Windows 10 install doesn't take that long. Restoring the data from the other SSD was also amazingly fast which was nice.

    I saw something similar when I was clean installing Windows 10 on a few systems with Windows 7 keys back before the free W10 upgrade expired. I learned quickly to install to the SSD with all the other drives disconnected.

    +1. You can never have too much light.

    I converted my workroom to LED about two years ago. 5000K, CRI 90+, 1800 lumens per tube, 10800 lumens total.

    I actually need this much light when I'm working with tiny surface mount parts. The rest of the time, I just have one fixture on.

    Nice job in the garage. Looks like more than enough light for anything you might need to do in there.
