    I liked this. A lot. And Search tells me it hasn't been shared here yet. Shall we dance?

    Fun Fact: If car event participants (Cars & Coffee, etc.) go ahead and park at the “A” chargers leaving the “B’s” open, they’ll actually be helping travelers avoid pairing conflict. Win-Win? (I know, urban-chargers the exception, but still...) Need a lot of goodwill on all sides before...

    Webster Rudy’s is becoming a regular meetup place for a “speed” car group. I don’t know if they leave any SC stalls open or just park in them. Rudy's BBQ Meet #20 STREET CAR NIGHT.

    Is it just me, or is there a different definition of Feature Complete (implying "Released") running around than the more conservative one I get from these:

    All the good ones will be ancient Vulcan wisdom eventually. Like, “Only NixElon could go to dance in China.”

    I think our very own @Curt Renz holds the record. Phelps never had a chance, with or without a tie. Here: one chyron, four (!) crawls, and an elusive schmoo smo sighting.

    Speaking only for myself - I do admit that there’s clearly a “protection racket” and eager participants utilizing it and enjoying the “primary benefit.” I do not feel it is possible at this point for Tesla to get the same benefit for any reasonable level of Protection Payments (the benefit...

    Here’s the opposite angle view, near the very end of the video for a split second. Notice the matching components facing the beam on the building’s south wall? The two doohitchies atop the transverse beam, would they make sense as “two of four?” Either for die crane(s) or something else...

    :rolleyes: High Five my sibling! ✋ I mean, driving the car got me to look into $TSLA but stationary storage got me excited enough to invest with gusto. “If their battery packs do so well on wheels, they’re going to rule in sitting-still enclosures.” I sleep with a copy of the Brattle...

    Those exist! Kind of. Where I work, even lowly IT desktop guys have to take the Series 6, Series 7 or equivalent and not flunk too miserably. Just so everyone knows reasonably the business. For the full-on license, you apparently now have to be sponsored by a firm. Don't know, it was a while...

    Are you straight "locked into holding," or are you (like me) obligated to "disgorge profits from closing a position under 60 days" to charity? Fortunately or unfortunately, it prevents me from day trading, week trading or even Month Trading... protecting me from my own damn self a lot of the...

    Tesla broke ground and started work on Giga Texas, Giga New Mexico(?) and Giga Nevada during final site selection. I never heard if they sold back the land for the 2 unselected sites or not. Your Daily Amnesia Antidote from your friendly neighborhood Fiddler.

    But hey, the need to assist Bolt sales gave the U.S. an EV income tax credit. The baroque algorithm was artisanally crafted to right-size the max credit to ...the capacity of the Bolt battery. Thanks, Mordor!

    Drying and then air-scrubbing for the wet electrode recipe, is the ickiest part, and maybe second largest (after aging/conditioning?). Dry recipe shrinks the production footprint in all four dimensions.

    I welcome the investigation (!) which will have NHTSA state a finding, to wit: a Tesla's acceleration schema (relying on dual, equal, opposite signals both being received from two Go Pedal potentiometers: one positive, one negative) is safer, MUCH safer than any single-source sensing. If the two...

    DaveT Interviews TrendTrader007 LIVE!!1! He did have help... On the other hand, TT literally coined the phrase "Not An Advice" so there's that :rolleyes: It is ...possible... to drive a car by looking in the rear view mirror at where you've just been. But you have to know the road already...

    Y’all please keep checking-in to PlugShare. It is a useful resource if updated. (I didn’t “get” the Van Horn reference either, but whatever)

    NOT AN ADVICE: I don't believe in time travel, but if I did I would look for small, standout coded signals. Like... the price of a Tesla Tsunami Survival Device

    Given lackluster service would you still buy a Tesla?

    Talked this week to the body shop that in 2017 had my S for four weeks. Shop manager said yeah, it’s a LOT easier and quicker now to get parts than it was then. They should know!

    What I did, split one coconut in half 30 cents! I lie. The coconut halves were a giveaway at a 2015 screening of Monty Python. But I love using them. Clip-clop!

    It says “units” - so, redefinable. :) Add in PowerPacks if the number’s too high for “cars.” Those are “units” :rolleyes:

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Modules go into packs (along with one penthouse per pack). Cells go into modules. Shipping modules from GF1 is a possible intermediate strategy, if "Pack production has begun" as we have been told. Sigh. Any of you kids who actually think "Cells gozinta Packs" (I see this in discussion of...

    EV charging around Fredricksburg TX

    There's a free, Chargepoint-networked J1772 in Kerrville (across from the tasty café Grape Juice) and a $2/hour charger in Fredericksburg on a funky one-off the MobileNOW network.

    Green Act EV Proposal Discussion

    A Flow Chart might be able to capture all the scenarios... would it be a helpful work product to present to the round thread (to save verbosity) and the TwitterVerse (who desperately need visual aid)?
  46. SW2Fiddler

    Green Act EV Proposal Discussion

    Not a criticism. End result is what you describe. I am only trying to keep the Legal Terms straight so the discussion can be kept somewhat focused: because of happening in the Exclusion Period... because of happening prior to the Effective Date. Remember that any one term is subject to...
