noob12345: getting new disks, new volvo factory, brake system flushed cost me like $500
*new volvo factory pads
if i had just got my discs resurfaced, gotten cheap pads, not asked for a full system flush, maybe $300
and thats not replacing the calipers or the master cylinder
shit is expensive when you dont just do it yourself
well check the reservoir to see if the level goes down
if it doesnt theres prob a leak in the caliper seals or hose fitting or who knows
er if it does
if it doesnt you prob just need the brake fluid completely flushed and bled by someone who gives a shit

hed need loaded calipers so thats like $80 to maybe $200 each
you would need 2 or 4
then you need to get your discs resurfaced and new pads
yeah then you maybe had the pads swapped and hopefully the rotors surfaced
because you dont need as much rear brake and theyre cheap
i hate working on them
but for $200 i doubt he replaced the master cylinder or calipers
sounds like pads, resurfaced discs, and a bleed
not a full flush
mechanics hate do full brake system flushes it takes a long fucking time and two people\
so if you look in the reservoir for the master cylinder and its not crystal clean, thats another reason your brakes suck
yeah they charged me $80 just to do that
last time and i stood and watched and the reservoir still wasnt clean
when i do it i usually buy a full bottle just to dump through the system
noob12345: hand brake is just a cable adjustment
its not a hydraulic system
just pulls a lever on your rear brakes

mechanics are usually lazy about bleeding brakes
krill3: but the golf prob loved it

dude youre default rotate is like, each part dances around in circles trolling the user
and you have to do something to override retarded auto alignment features even when grid is set to like 1mil
yes
um of course thats what i did
did they fix the bug
obviously im talking about group rotate
not really
so its fixed
yeah but in the menus?

make r8 and r11, the pulldowns, 10K
oh they did that?
leds are 2v

and the higher the value is the more EMI will fuck with shit
its for prototyping or if you really dont give a fuck
you put them on the design if you dont need them you leave them out
its fine you can always change it
just have your machine put another 0402 on top
5.0K
can it do that?!
like is there some sort of z stop?
thats like something you try and get perfect while drunk or on drugs
you have a paste area on the edge of the board
and the machine drops the 0402 on the pasted pad
picks it back up and stacks it

depends but prob not
pullup for what
hi for what
is it for communication shit or buttons or what
comm shit you might be changing characteristic of open collector/drain drivers, and mismatching loads on two ends of a long signal path
yeah 10k is fine
well does it mean internal
or recommended
internal it just means its a normal internal pullup it sucks as far as precision
you do it just because internal pullups suck

ubuntu is like suse but less breakable thus less annoying
anytime i touched any config shit on suse *something* would happen next time some autoconfig script ran or i restarted wm or whatever
ranging from minor menu retardation to total system meltdown
hi i use that
ha
you prob use way more opensores than i do, being a code dev, and also ive never contributed any licensed opensores software like you have
thats trolling

`nico: hi!
so my last night i went out to bbq with the manufacturing guy and the buyer guy (hes got english)
and i dunno we went through maybe 3 bottles of soju
and i ate raw beef mixed with raw egg and sesame
and i tried to pay on my company, but they wouldnt let me
so yeah then i took them to my bar mad max
and spent like $100 on guiness and hogged the juke box for a few hours
and me and the buyer agreed to 1000 year spoken word contract between our companies
signed in guiness
we worked out the deal using beer bottles to represent our companies and the other guitar OEMs they do work for
so its good i went to the bar after work so many time to learn how to work the korean jukebox
