    Just got my second stamp back yesterday for the SBR portion of my new toy. Took 28 days on an e-file form 1. Slowly accruing the rest of the parts needed. Just need upper, barrel, suppressor mounting things, and a lower parts kit. Hopefully have it done in the next month or so, then stocking up...

    What did you do to your MK6 today?

    Did a slightly overdue oil change this weekend. Also pulled off my o2 spacer since the code is tuned out, rather the inspector not possibly see that. Now I just gotta try to get past emissions with one monitor not set. My brake sensor wire also ripped itself out a bit so my car thinks my pads...

    I don't have any temp monitoring on my desktop (oops) but I do on my laptop. Highest i've seen it go was ~60C, but then the fan starts sounding like a plane ready for take-off. Usually i'm at 35-40C when just browsing or coding.

    On the rare occasions I use my computer for gaming and I open the door to leave the room, I realize how much heat it puts out.

    They come pre-installed. Only thing I did for install was physically put them in and plug them in

    The Random / "Stupid" Questions Thread

    I'll try this first. I think the ballasts may be on the bottom of the lights so it might be a bit of a project to get it all off and changed. I looked through all the connections though and it all seemed tight. Hoping just the ballast though so I don't need to find a replacement for the whole...

    The Random / "Stupid" Questions Thread

    So my drivers side headlight kinda shit the bed yesterday. When I turn on the headlights it comes on just fine, but then starts flickering and eventually just shuts off. When I turn on the highbeams the bulb flashes pretty quick like 10 times then stays on for about 15 seconds before shutting...

    The Random / "Stupid" Questions Thread

    Anyone else running a H&R front swaybar in an area where it gets cold? It's 9 degrees here today (Fahrenheit) and there was a lot of noise coming from my front end. At first it sounded like clunking but then I noticed it was more like a squeaky couch. I put on a lot of lube/grease on the...

    Just because I hate how much the term has been misused, 99% of the people (probably more) in this country don't own assault rifles. I agree with everything you said there, just hate when people call semi-autos assault rifles, or worse assault weapons, just because of how they look.

    I love my pi. Makes a good little makeshift NAS/torrent box. Also have it hooked up to my tv and just remote into it anytime I want to watch a movie. It's led to me finding the homelab subreddit and now I eventually plan on having a whole rack in my basement.

    Might be slightly off topic here but anyone use Arch linux? Getting a new thinkpad in tomorrow or Friday and i'm thinking of going with Arch, but having trouble on deciding on a desktop environment/window manager to go with.

    I like the suppressor height sights and the common thread size on the barrel, but in addition to being more expensive, i'd then have to spend more money on a trigger to get that on par with the Canik, and I think i'd rather have another 1500-2000 rounds of ammo than those out of the box.

    **Gun Enthusiast Thread**

    Anyone have any experience with Canik pistols? I'm debating a TP9SF Elite Combat or a FN509 Tactical for my next one. I've heard the trigger is a bit better on the Canik, but I also like the mag sizes on the 509

    My brother has a P320 and that thing is pretty nice to shoot. Also the whole modularity thing is nice, being able to switch out frames and such.
