Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer
So, the Service Engine Soon light turned off this morning as I was driving in to work. I called to see about making an appointment anyway and the guy I talked to said he wouldn't bother bringing it in. The cold weather we've been having can lead to those sort of lights coming on and then going off.

So, as long as the light stays off things should be okay. I still need to get around to getting the rear brakes replaced and the oil changed, but the engine is fine for now.

Oh, and the Dell Dude was busted for possession of pot.

That's fucking hilarious, about the Dell Dude. He always annoyed the piss out of me. Guess I've got something to talk about at the office!

I need to get my rear and front brakes fixed as well. Logan and I replaced the brake pads on the front (on a VW this is alarmingly easy), but the disks themselves were pretty shredded, so probably the pads will wear down faster than normal. Wish I could do this in warmer weather.

I kind of understand the basic concept (non-threatening dumb guy, if he can use the computer then even you can!) but I wasn't particularly fond of the ads.

I got the front brakes done a couple months ago. I needed to have both the pads and something else replaced (rotor sounds right). Supposedly the new pads should be more corrosion resistant.

What disturbs me is that brake pads are made of compressed asbestos. Everyone who drives and stops at all or even slows down is shedding microfine asbestos particles into the atmosphere.

Is that still true? This suggests they aren't asbestos anymore and it's from six years ago.

Maybe not all of them are, but the pair I bought last year said "asbestos" on the box. They're for a '97 VW Golf, and I picked them up at Checker Auto Parts, so I assume this is still in practice.

Maybe it's just some sort of German plot.
