    Blog Musk Says Tesla is Working on ‘Grief’ from Collision Repair

    Yeah, besides service being a sore point in general, it seems to me that parts are the main issue. My right repeater camera stopped working in early December and I'm still waiting for it to be repaired. First mobile service showed up with the wrong part (guy expected to have a replacement...

    Blue Origin - New Shepard

    They really do seem to lack a sense of urgency, probably because they lack a sense of urgency. It's not like their founder is going to run out of money any time soon, so slow and careful probably works for them. Might as well be extra careful if you can afford it since this will carry people...

    Tesla Working on Driver Monitoring System

    I find at times the scroll wheel no longer works, and I'm forced to torque the wheel to satisfy the nag.

    Going down for maintenance this weekend

    Sorry, I had been planning to rename those and just did. Elastic is the more native search which is much improved over the previous native search since I set up an elasticsearch server. It also powers some features like Similar threads. ThreadLoom search is through a search partner and does...

    Push notifications

    I have to say, though, the push notifications are much improved. If you later want to disable them, you can do that in your preferences here, rather than struggling with your browser settings. Also they contain much more useful information and the preferences give a lot of granularity as to...

    Going down for maintenance this weekend

    Hi folks, Starting around 9pm EST tonight we're going to start working on some much needed upgrades and maintenance. During that time the site will be in a read-only mode, so you'll be able to browse but won't be able to post to the forum. If for some odd reason, you do manage to post, that...

    I dug into it last night and this morning and didn't see anything obvious. Let me know if the issue comes up again.

    Hmm... this is a feature I never use. I'll poke around tonight to see if I can see any issue. @4SUPER9 Some screen shots illustrating the problem will help with the troubleshooting.

    Charging fault at supercharger

    Do you know which software version? 2020.48.5 seemed to have caused a problem with one of my cameras on my Model 3. I'm hoping 2020.48.10 fixed it.

    Right side camera not working

    I've had this issue since doing the 2020.48.5 update. I let the update install on the night of Nov 30. The next morning, Dec 1, I set out for a 6 hour drive and got a warning that said "Autopilot cameras unavailable. Features may be restored on next drive." I noticed that the right rear...

    Autoweek question about battery longevity

    We got a question from Jim Montavalli of Autoweek. Anyone care to comment? Can someone at the Tesla Motors Club comment on how long they expect to be able to drive on their battery packs? I see 300,000 miles bandied about. This is for an Autoweek story.

    Does the posting modification duration get changed?

    On forum posts that are not the the first post in a thread, current settings are you have to hour to edit (or delete). For the first post in a thread, most members have 10 minutes to edit. This is to thwart certain types of spam and other forum abuses. Supporting members, however, have...

    Blue Origin - New Shepard

    I don't know what they need to do to decide it's safe for passengers. This was their 13th launch, 7th with that booster. No mishaps as far as I know. It seems pretty safe. Definitely safer than Virgin Galactic which has a much more dramatic launch profile, is at least a decade behind...

    Blue Origin - New Shepard

    I think it's significant for comfort, and probably helps the margin on safety. Soyuz has done it for years. In this case it not just acceleration but also the jerk (time derivative of acceleration). Apparently they also have some shock absorbers in the seat mounts.

    Blue Origin - New Shepard

    Definitely. That ring of dust around 47:32 is from the quick burst of the retros just before landing.

    Tesla Working on Driver Monitoring System

    I'm fine with the cabin camera, but would like access to all that data. I not only want access to the video feed (which should be included with Sentry and Tesla Cam recordings), but should have access to the labels the AI is placing on me and want to know what is being done with that data. If...

    This was a alluded to above, but doesn't Tesla need to ask permission to use that interior camera, or is it something we've already agree to somewhere?

    Base vs Founders

    Historically, Founders/Signature versions of the cars have primarily been a way for Tesla to capitalize on folks willing to pay to jump in line. Practically, though, given how production ramps it's not that much more of a wait and the first cars tend to have issues.

    SLS - On the Scent of Inevitable Capitulation

    I've probably said it before, but one of my complaints with SLS (besides the huge cost) is their single use of the previously flown reusable RS-25 shuttle engines. Given the cost of refurbishment and that they expect to produce new ones, they should just use the new ones and reduced their unit...

    Netflix series “Away”: the journey to Mars, chock full of personal drama

    Raised by Cosmacelf. I'm up to date on the show (ep5). I find it pretty interesting. The visuals are fantastic. The first episode is on YouTube, if you're curious and don't have HBO.

    Netflix series “Away”: the journey to Mars, chock full of personal drama

    Yeah, the hardest part about dealing with a vacuum leak is locating it. Here they were creating it so they know exactly where it is. Patching such a leak isn't very difficult, particularly from the high pressure side. If they had started with a small enough hole someone could have literally...

    Netflix series “Away”: the journey to Mars, chock full of personal drama

    Yeah I thought it was nuts they didn't start with a smaller hole and have a bit of epoxy (or even duct tape or chewing gum) ready to patch it immediately.

    Netflix series “Away”: the journey to Mars, chock full of personal drama

    Away makes me wish the rumored "play at higher speed" feature would hurry up and come to Netflix. What's interesting to me is how they seem to be trying to get the physics right in some places and just fail in other places. They make a big deal about having centrifugal pseudo-gravity in the...

    "Best Posts" feature not working correctly

    That feature has some other issues that won't be fixed until some other major upgrades are completed. As to the particular post you mention, that thread is entirely excluded from the feature because otherwise nearly every posts listed in all categories would be from that single thread.
