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?)

Major automakers to Trump: We want rule changes to address lower gas prices.
Gas prices: Hold my beer.
(Idea for the toot taken from https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/posts/2733186/, story about the major automakers taken from https://www.reuters.com/article/us-autos-trump/trump-to-sit-down-with-major-automakers-on-friday-on-fuel-rules-idUSKBN1IC0ZB)
Uhh, FreeBSD, what are you doing with those dependencies?
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): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvThDPjGtGg
The Lasercompo, a 1/6 scale wooden model of the Motocompo: https://thekirkshop.com/
Not gonna lie, I want both.
Yay, it's working, too.
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.)

Tesla stock discussion Show more
There are a *lot* of people betting against Tesla in the stock market. Over 40% of the TSLA shares in the market have been sold short, it seems.
(Disclosure: I'm holding a few shares of TSLA.)
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.
