Manta Update



Since they said they'd have it running by now, I went over to the mechanic that's doing the shift linkage for my crippled Manta Montage. It still needs a little adjustment, but I saw it shifting through all the gears (a big improvement). A shift gate and some minor fixes and it should be OK. The right-rear brake needs to be replaced as well (it's been completely non-functional — and noisy — since I got it).

Anyway, when that's done, it's off to have a new interior installed, then some minor bodywork and a paint job. I'm putting a Basic Stamp powered interface on it as well so there will be digital gauges showing things like G-forces, downforce on different parts of the car, regional temperatures, and so on, with a USB port for data logging. I'm also putting in front and rear cameras…

Anyway, back to server programming now…

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
