Popped a P0523 code on the way home. Drive to work (18 miles), drop off at dealership in the afternoon (9 miles) and hopefully they can get the recalls done at the same time. Oil level is fine, no metallics in the catch can, as long as it doesn’t go into limp mode it should make the drive……..right?
It’s still the oil level sensor. Had same issue on my 12 Tahoe, it died (code for pressure too low, yours is pressure too high) and then came back to life, never did change it, just assumed the screen got clogged somehow. If it’s not knocking it’s fine.

Comcast/Xfinity is down nationally which means every assclown in Glenn Ellyn is stopping to ask me when it’ll be fixed. I point at one of the 5 logos on me and the giant white truck with more Death Star logos on it.
One Idiot “Is something you’re doing the reason my cable is down?”
Me “I don’t work for them (pointing at Death Star logo). Comcast is having a National outage, I have no idea when they’ll be back up.”
Irritated idiot “That’s BULLSHIT!! None of this happened until your dumbass started working on that pole!”
Me rolling my eyes. “Dumbass? Do you always start conversations by insulting people? Ya see this here pole? This here pole doesn’t have ANY cable companies on it other that mine which is a PHONE COMPANY! Not ComEd, not Comcast, not wide open west, not MCI, not Nicor JUST US!”
REALLY angry idiot “BULLSHIT, I’M GONNA KICK YOUR ASS!!! I’M CALLING YOUR BOSS AND YOU’RE NOT COMING DOWN UNTIL MY CABLE IS FIXED!!!” (He starts tugging on a rope that’s attached to my belt, if he upsets my balance I’m taking the express elevator down. It’s maybe ten feet but it’ll still hurt)
Me, screaming while climbing down the pole and detaching the rope from my belt “GET YOUR FUCKING HANDS OFF THAT ROPE OR I’LL CRACK YOUR FUCKING SKULL OPEN!!!!! ARE YOU TRYING TO FUCKING KILL ME BECAUSE YOUR FUCKING CABLE IS OUT?!?! CALL MY BOSS YOU ASSHOLE, NOW I’M CALLING THE FUCKING COPS. (I start free climbing/speed dropping down the pole) You can talk to my boss while I call the cops and tell them some jackass won’t let me come down the pole, is trying to yank me off the pole and you’re threatening me. In case you’re wondering it’s not a good idea to threaten a man that has metal spikes attached to his legs, a 3 lbs hammer and a chainsaw. OR you can listen to me when I say Comcast is having a National outage and I don’t work for them!”
Once angry now scared looking customer looking up at me while I’m standing on the ground (he’s maybe 5’5” I’m almost 6’3” in my climbing boots). “So….Um……so you don’t work for Comcast?”
Now REALLY pissed off me, chainsaw in left hand, right hand resting on hammer “No I don’t!!! That was the first fucking thing I said to you, they’re having a National outage. Now FUCK OFF!!!!!!!”
And away he went.

One of these days I’m going to catch this kind of stupidity on camera and show you all just how unbelievably dumb people are. They always seem to get me when I’m on my climbers or on a ladder and I can’t get my phone out.

Goddamn I fucking hate people!!!

Without going into too much detail, this chunk of milled steel is path for high pressure calibration fluid. At least least it used to be until it went boom with a few sparks. It scared the poop out of the machine operator. lol

Had that with comcrap this AM. 15 minutes to get a person to bitch about the frequent outages (including this AM, twice), they say "oh we'll give you a credit. Let me see what I can apply to your acc.... click". FUUUUUCK!

Just in time for Black Friday and cyber Monday deals!

i had to give up on my 6s. The newer iOS just liked it. Back in January got a SE 2020 since it fit all my cases and mounts.

Fuck. My blood sugar is low again. Getting off Keto and back to eating some carbs makes it much harder to maintain a smooth BG line. Carbs push my blood glucose way up compared to the Keto diet. Gotta hit the right insulin number or I go low. Daily struggle to keep it in line. Worth it to live a "normal" life but it's a pain. At least I don't have the nighttime leg cramps that I had with Keto. Sucks to wake up at 4 A.M. with leg cramp pain.

Looks like I forgot to post here. Woman ran a stop sign & tried to kill me:
Front Dash Cam
You can see where I saw she wasn't going to stop and started slowing, from the door of the street
Rear Dash Cam
I've been dealing with my insurance & letting them deal with hers... They are 90% sure it's a total loss...
I had the dealership look, they cannot find a 19 with bucket seats in the back w/ 401a package, so I am probably going to end up in a 21 ST Explorer

No one was badly hurt, but my neck, shoulders, and elbows are very sore.

That second little "bump" just to make sure any pieces left dangling would be able to fall off?

Factory dash cam?

The second little bump proves she never even hit her brake pedal, because if she was freaking out hitting her break she would have hit my truck and stopped.

The body shop was correct, the insurance is considering it a total loss. They say that I should hear something tomorrow or the next day about the offer that they're going to give me for my vehicle so that I can purchase a replacement.
I've got the dealership looking for a 21 ST with the 401a package now

They are not going to get it not many dealers are trading. You might as well start looking yourself and be prepared to pay up for a ST
