Garage door remote

I used some copper wire to bridge two connectors where a transistor had broken off.

Nook Color restoration

I found a great deal on a used Nook Color on craigslist. It had a screen protector on it, so the screen was perfect. However, the edges were a little beat up. I used some 400-grit wet/dry sandpaper to take off the chipped paint and level out the dents, leaving a clean matte black finish all around.

Happy autoversary!

Sure, it's Valentines Day today. But it's also exactly a year ago that I bought my 2000 BMW 323i. Autoversary!

I've been keeping track of how much money I've spent on the car since I got it. Repairs, maintenance, upgrades, everything except gas and oil changes. The costs have leveled off and the car has been running great.

The big jump in the middle was when I got new rims and tires.
