Unfortunately, This was the modified satellite launch vehicle and not being used for it’s intended purpose: To deter Nikita’s opposing missile forces, and if unsuccessful in deterrence, to hurl a nuclear present into space only to reenter on someone’s (Usually with the Atlas, it was a coin toss where it would land) doorstep-
Oh Hello Queen Elizabeth II, Perhaps you can use my car later, I’ve a lot to do today. You’ve got a Diamond Jubilee to get to? Well, that’s just dandy and all but…Wait, don’t wave goodbye, How am I going to get to work!
(The Queen’s was actually a 1984 Daimler, an Upgraded version of the Jaguar XJ12)
I did some rewiring on the Queen Mary today. Because some of the wires were corroded, this led to the wire rotting and overheating. In turn, this stopped my fans from functioning (And that’s NEVER a good thing.) So I rewired the fans, headlamps and other items stashed under the fuse box. And if you noticed, that’s not the Standard Jag inline 6 or V12, it’s actually a 1988 Camaro V8 that the original owner swapped in after the old one blew it’s master cylinder along with a Turbo-Hydramatic 700 Transmission.
Sorry but I just have to let this out:
GOSH DARN IT, BANNANA-RAMMA, JIM-JAM, FIDDLESTICKS! The Integrated circuit was first used in 1962 on the Minuteman Missile, and highly popularized in 1968 on the Saturn V, so why does an automobile built 15 years in the future still use relays? The old fuel injection system used IC’s, but this doesn’t. BAAAH. At least they could have made it organized.
(Directors Note: No Jaguars were harmed in this series of photos, I love her too much)
My New (well I say new, but it’s only new to me) Keyboard came in, a 1982 Commodore 64 keyboard replica. The keyboard has mechanical “bucky” springs, which is easier to press with the fingers, and makes a nice “click” sound when pressed.
The key caps are double shot spherical key caps that conform to the finger’s natural spherical shape.
I plan to take an Arduino unit to power it, and make a nice case for it (Well, at least when I get home, Right now Finals are pitched faster than I can bat at.)
And Plus, it just looks pretty cool. (Click the picture for the Arduino Tutorial)
So, My Dad finally figured out the problem with the leaking in the Cabin (And I wish I would have thought of this) But, as you can see right below Prince Charles’s head, there is a drainage vent. These vents lead to drainage pipes in the motor bay and have a pinched end.
If small debris and pine needles get caught in the pinched pipe, it will get backed up and drain into the cabin (To which ever side the car is leaning.)
So, in order to quell this anomaly, one must clear the pipes and the problem will not occur again.
