    Elon Musk

    I've updated my shrine. The Ayn Rand one was getting a little dated.

    Elon & Twitter

    Long line today at the Twitter shredders.

    Should I talk my wife out of an X and into a Y?

    I own neither an X or a Y (M3) but a couple of years ago a Tesla mobile service technician was lamenting about how bad the X reliability was (in the context of saying how thrilled he was with M3 reliability). Breakdowns or extended service visits does not equal happy wife. But, maybe X...

    California bans small gas engines including gas generators

    I've switched from "gas" to electric three times: * with model airplanes * with power tools (including chainsaws) * with cars I was at first skeptical about each of these transitions, but would never consider going back to gas with any of them. Now boats, please.

    Mobile Connector no longer included with new cars [posted 04/16/2022 - Tesla confirms adapter included with cars ordered before 04/17/22]

    This is a win-win. My car came with the mobile connector, increasing its resale value, and now I can get another one for $200 cheaper. ;)

    Mobile Connector no longer included with new cars [posted 04/16/2022 - Tesla confirms adapter included with cars ordered before 04/17/22]

    I suspect that these became unobtanium due to the chip shortage, and were hence removed. Same as the passenger seat lumbar support and the radar.

    My first accident

    That's encouraging about the pants. The NHTSA guy here showed up in a wrestling singlet. ;)

    My first accident

    I'm no expert, but I hear that those skilled in the art can locate people with an online presence in about 15 minutes. :) That said, you're probably right about the guy just seeing the car. Will be interesting to hear how it turns out - assuming diplomat33 decides it's our business ;)

    My first accident

    Diplomat33, sorry to hear about your crash. I enjoy your posts and hope you will continue posting even if your car is out of commission for a while. Here are a couple of thoughts: Insurance: in my experience, it's common for insurance companies to send you a check for their (always absurdly...

    Tesla ranks 2nd worst in Consumer reports reliability survey

    No, I don't have any more details. Note that the breakdown I posted is visible by clicking on the manufacturer bar graph in the OP link.

    Tesla ranks 2nd worst in Consumer reports reliability survey

    Not sure if it's been mentioned, but the Model 3 does relatively well - on par with some of the cars of the top rated car manufacturers. The other models bring the score down dramatically.

    Wiki FSD Beta 10.4

    I've been wondering the same thing. With "traditional" product development, typically you iterate on releasing to an audience just large enough to uncover bugs, then fix those and and expand the audience as appropriate. But, NN training is (at least to me) a dark art, so who knows how much...

    I messed up my new Tesla Model 3 LR !

    I did something similar to my pickup truck. Since it was an out of pocket repair, I had it bondo-ed and sprayed at MAACO. Very inexpensive, virtually unnoticeable, and it can easily be replaced with a new bumper later - after a few more dings, maybe, This feedback may (and probably...
