My day so far…

Doctor: So my knee does not have a baker's cyst as many people suggested. It was kind of funny because I told her I though I had a baker's cyst and told her I'd noticed it swelled to about gold ball size at the gym (although it probably had been like that for 15+ years), and she checked, and couldn't find it at all. I insisted that it was still there and she thought it wasn't really very big and nothing to worry about.

So then I pointed at it, and I'm like, “no, this“.

It kind of shocked the doctor because I think she thought the swelling was just part of my joint or something because she seemed more than a little weirded out when she started examining it. It's not a cyst, is totally hard, and doesn't appear to be connected to the joint or bone, but it's not free moving either. Her best guess was that it's severe calcification of the tendon… Ack! Well, next appointment is an ultrasound, and then I guess they decide how best to treat it, if at all.

Camo Porsche: I stopped by the paint shop and was met there by a pile of experts… The shop had been talking to the paint manufacturer and they were pretty excited about the project and sent down their top guys to make sure the job went perfectly because they want to showcase it in their catalog. The car is currently matte black and the green and tan camo tones are going on as I write this.

I want to strip out the interior of the car and replace it with green or tan canvas with big rivets, and completely “theme” the car… Maybe I can find an interior place that wants to do it for free in trade for exhibiting the car at a few shows or something. I was actually thinking of asking some of the places that make custom S&M gear, because it's sort of a military-fetish theme…

Twin-Engine Mini-Tank: I also stopped by a big pocketbike importer and talked to them about the tank-drive go-kart project that I want to do. Because I really only need the driveline of the bike, they're going through their big pile of wrecked bikes so they can give me just the pieces I need so no money is wasted breaking down a perfectly good bike to build it.

Other than that, I'm going to start trying comment forums again. I didn't want to include them for a little while because I was watching IAM and didn't want to put extra load on the server, but it appears fairly happy so I'm going to start again…

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