Trying to see if I can pick up the Altair that's playing music through broadband RF interference. (I don't think it's playing right now?)

Two adorable things.

The Honda Motocompo, a 49 cc scooter designed to be folded up and put in the back of a Honda City subcompact (one size smaller than the Civic): youtube.com/watch?v=MvThDPjGtG

The Lasercompo, a 1/6 scale wooden model of the Motocompo: thekirkshop.com/

Not gonna lie, I want both.

Yay, found out that there's a keyboard fix out there for international ROMs on a RHOD210 (TMOUS), and found a stock 6.1 ROM for RHOD100 (European unlocked) - not the very latest, but it'll do.

Random fact that I'm highly amused by: the Gen 4 (2016+) Toyota Prius Liftback's gearing means that it reaches full engine power at 88 mph. (OK, 87.777 mph, but same difference.)

Oh jeez, Best Tours (who commissioned the 1992 Jumbocruiser) apparently had a bi-articulated concept coach.

What the fuck.

Compare to what I believe is the actual 1992 Jumbocruiser.

And then, equally insane is the Neoplan Jumbocruiser, a double-decker articulated coach, at 18 meters long.

Maximum capacity was designed as 144 passengers for the original version, although as I understand, the customers tended towards luxury instead, one version even being a sleeper bus.

The original 1975-1986 version was a puller, with the engine in the middle, only allowing pass-through at the upper level.

A later version moved to a rear engine, allowing pass-through at both levels.

Or, here's the Volvo Gran Artic 300 chassis, and what I believe is a rendering of a body on it, a chassis intended for 30 m long buses for the Brazilian market, with up to 300 passengers.

Oh, hey, finally booted and logged in. Not sure how long it actually took, I was doing some other things.

Holy hell, this is slow, BUT IT IS LOADING.
