I envision our apocalypse having a very good chance of having limited technology, such as an EMP or solar-event.
Now if the ECU and and semi-conductor based sensors were in a Faraday cage or similarly shielded; this may not be a problem.
Mechanical systems would still function naturally, and old school points/condenser ignitions should be good too.
The thing about those diesels, is its easy to rip the computer out of them. You basically just have to replace the injector with a manual injector, and then it's a non E version of the engine. The E was just a retrofit to begin with. =)
Steve Wozniak is the only thing at Apple that isn't evil.
Two apps. Notification settings for both are configured the same. When one app gets a "message," it's icon is overlapped with a number. When the other app gets a "message", it's icon is not overlapped with a number, yet you can open the app and see the new "message." It did not used to be this way (i.e., the overlapped number used to display for both). Any idea(s) as to what is going on here?
