On July 29th Microsoft released Windows 10 and while most of the people listening to the podcast will have most likely upgraded by now there might be a few on the fence. In this episode Dennis and Darren talk about their experiences upgrading and even give a few pointers.
Per most “upgrades” there is a good chance things will progress smoothly but every once in awhile something will decide to take a side street to attain the final goal. In this case both Dennis and Darren had different experiences during the install including things like keys not getting accepted and monitor profiles not being recognized. Of course pure determination and strategic reboots tend to solve most problems related to Windows and Win 10 is no exception.
Chevy S10 Xtreme Project Update
Last year Dennis had hired a well known company to build an engine for the S10 Xtreme and shortly after new years Dennis had installed the engine and had it running a few days after returning from CES. Unfortunately the engine made a few rather strange sounds and pulled the engine to have it worked on.
As of this episode the engine is still out of the truck and with a local builder for inspection and parts replacement. It would seem luck is not with Dennis for this project and after battling with the original builder for the past couple months finally got replacement parts which happened to be not only incomplete but also incompatible. This got Dennis ranting about the importance of choosing “who” you hire to complete a project which can extend beyond the automotive field.
