Review: Becker Tire in Orange, CA

Becker Tire 1100 N Tustin St, Orange, CA 92867 – (714) 633-1780 – www.BeckerTire.net Last month I took a trip to the Barstow area with a group of people, and we drove down a dirt, where I ended up getting a flat tire. I live in Orange County, CA – that’s over 100 miles away from me. And it was Sunday. So my tire repair shop options were limited. One of the only places open was “Frankie Tires”. I ended up buying four new tires. Once I got …

GoDaddy sucks again…

I don’t know why I expect different results when I have to deal with GoDaddy.com – even though they’ve proven time and time and time again that they do NOT care about customer service. And today was just another example of poor customer service, and an overall failure of the people answering the phones AND a supervisor. Here’s what happened: I got a domain renewal email, sent to an address I haven’t used for *YEARS*, about a domain that I haven’t used, touched, worked on for years. I …

Wow Google Maps…

I’ve never noticed this before… or maybe it’s a new feature that Google recently added. Click each of the links below to look at different satellite views of the Los Angeles area: https://www.google.com/maps/@33.9303766,-118.3701895,2379m/data=!3m1!1e3 https://www.google.com/maps/@34.0316144,-118.2216863,995m/data=!3m1!1e3 https://www.google.com/maps/@33.7829021,-117.8795468,1447m/data=!3m1!1e3 https://www.google.com/maps/@33.6732444,-117.8861655,491m/data=!3m1!1e3   What’s missing? Cars on the freeways! I can’t believe if missed this before! I looked all over the freeways around LA, and except for a few anomalies, it looks like Google has removed vehicles from the roads! Considering that they have a bazillion photos (not a real number, it’s just obvious …

Review: Petersen Automotive Museum

**To Petersen Automotive Museum: If you do see this, do NOT respond to *ME* – respond to all of the people who try to come to the museum who have to park blocks away** On Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at about 11:15a, we got to the Petersen Automotive Museum – with our internet-purchased tickets in hand – but were turned away from the parking garage. On a WEDNESDAY at 11 am. How is that possible? Because the Petersen Automotive Museum doesn’t hold parking for patrons of the museum. …

BTTF Numeral GRAFIX

The “BTTF Numeral GRAFIX” watch face is based on a promotional watch that was sold for the release of “Back to the Future Part II”.

It features the digital watch font, where the current hour is displayed around the face, and the current minute is in the center. The colors are taken right from screen-grabs of the time circuits in BTTF. The face is also pretty low power, with an OPR of just 2.3%.

Archer

The “Archer” watch face was inspired by the opening sequence of the “Archer” TV show. The font on the watch face is the exact same font that’s used in the video intro for the show, and the hands are cleaned-up screen-grabs from the video as well. There’s nothing special about v01 of this watch face. Download “Archer – v01” here.
