Same goes for regular speed bumps. These are for low speed streets, not the highway.

I may be talking out of my hat, but the cars I've had all had the same procedure so maybe it'll work on your Sequoia:

Hold the window up button until the window is fully closed. Keep holding it for 2-3 seconds. Do the same with the window down button, keeping it for 2-3 seconds after the window is fully down. Repeat it again up and down. Do the same for the other window.

It should teach the system where the limits are.

An upgrade like this is going to cost several millions / tens of millions of dollars. This is not a small project. Unless you have the cash to do it yourself and be your own ISP, you'll have to wait for Windstream to do it.

If it's a straight run, with brand new conduits and no other cables in there, you might be able to do it with a single pull or maybe a single pullbox in the middle of the run. If there are bends, occupied conduits / other cables in there, you'll need pullboxes every 100m or so.

First step is to fish a pull line in the conduit. Then, you can pull the cable through with the pull line. Ask whoever is supplying you the cable to put a pulling ring on one end. If you go for a longer distance, use plenty of lube when you're pulling the cable.

The most expensive thermostat on Autozone is $36. It looks to me like a big ripoff.

What model of EX switch do you have? How is the port configured on the EX?

You know men can talk to women, and vice versa, right? Go somewhere with your boyfriend/girlfriend, then ask them what it's like on their side.

Or, in most places, look at the fire evacuation plan displayed on the wall, should show you exactly the layout of every room in the building.

Have you replaced the bulbs? Bulbs lose intensity over time as they age, so if they've never been replaced it could simply be that.

Alright I will try that. An what bulbs would you recommend that are brighter but not get pulled over bright?

I've had good experience with Osram Silverstar bulbs in my Grand Caravan. They were brighter than the OEM bulbs, but not obnoxiously so. They don't blind people and you shouldn't have any problems with cops.

It was not burning oil (to the best of my knowledge, and I take very good care of it) BUT I was contacted by Toyota to say that there’s some kind of warrantee that’s about to expire. Basically, if it is burning oil and it fails the oil consumption test they will take the engine apart and give me new pistons and piston rings. I thought “free stuff!? Sure!” But after dealing with them face to face and being left feeling like they’re trying to screw me over, I think I’ll decline any of their offers and stick to my local family mechanic. Who has been working on my families cars for 30+ years haha

They get you in the door with an offer of "free stuff", then try to bullshit you with a $700 bill.

Classic bait and switch scam.

At a minimum, get a second opinion before doing anything to that water pump.

McMaster-Carr invented teleportation and can magically take parts from their warehouse and teleport them onto a UPS truck. That's my guess.

It's crazy how quick they can ship you obscure and random parts.

Pushing from inside the truck is not helping, for sure, but his weight might contribute to the grip of the rear tires.

A frame is a Layer 2 construct, a packet is a Layer 3 construct.

In common modern Ethernet networks, you have an Ethernet frame containing an IP packet.

In older networks, you might've had a serial frame containing an IP packet or an Ethernet frame containing an IPX packet, etc.

When a basic Layer 2 switch acts on a frame, it only looks at the frame header and trailer, not at what's inside the frame. When a Layer 3 router acts on a packet, it looks at both the outer frame header and trailer, and the inner packet header.

Taking our common Ethernet/IP network, the Layer 2 switch looks at the Ethernet frame data, source MAC, destination MAC, etc. The Layer 3 router looks at both the Ethernet frame data and the inner IP packet data, source IP, destination IP.

Sorry for being so slow, but isn’t that redundant? An address within an address?

Let's take a small network as an example:

[Device A] --- [Router B] --- [Device C]

A wants to send data to C. The network stack takes the data stream, and it has to construct an IP packet :

Source IP: A / Destination IP: C

Then it has to construct an Ethernet frame. For this, it looks in its routing table to find where it should send its data to reach C. To reach C, it has to send it to Router B. Then it looks at its ARP table (or makes an ARP request) to find the Layer 2 address of Router B. It can then construct the Ethernet frame :

Source MAC: A / Destination MAC: B
Source IP: A / Destination IP: C

When B gets this data, it looks at the frame destination (himself!) then it look at the packet destination (C). It then knows it will have to forward the packet to C. it then builds a new frame around that packet:

Source MAC: B / Destination MAC: C
Source IP: A / Destination IP: C


Along the way, the inner IP packet didn't change, but the outer frame was replaced at each Layer 3 hop. This is why there are multiple addresses on the data. The outer address indicates the immediate next hop, while the inner address indicates the final destination.

You cheated on T. Then you asked your ex to dump his gf to be with you. Then once he did you dumped him.

It's just a trainwreck at this point.

Walk away from both. Take some time to reflect on why you got yourself in this mess in the first place. Maybe some therapy is in order.

At this point, you've really hurt your ex by playing him, and when T realizes that you cheated on him and were ready to dump him he'll be hurt as well.

Cut both of them out of your life and move on with it.

If you don't want drama in your life then it's up to you to remove it. You've already screwed the pooch with both guys, proverbially, so just cut your loses.

I'm thinking the same. She was emotionally cheating on T and ready to dump him, made her ex dump his gf, then told the ex to suck it because she wants to be with T instead...

Maybe taking a break and thinking about this whole mess might be the best outcome.

Voltage is different on RS232 vs Ethernet. The chip driving your NIC cannot physically output an RS232 compatible signal. It's not a software problem, it's a hardware problem.

That would be great. The 42069 is neat with its V8 and 4x4 drivetrain, but I would love to get a model with a transfer case.

I'd argue both. Lots of Corolla models out there being driven, and drivers buying the Corolla are likely folks who aren't very... er... good at driving. I don't really expect someone buying a Corolla LE, for example, to be someone who's much into driving/cars at all, but rather just looking for cheap/reliable transportation (not that there's anything wrong with that).

Although, if that's true, I have to wonder why the Honda Civic isn't closer to the Corolla in losses. The Civic is definitely costlier to insure due to its younger demographic of drivers (i.e., appeals more to younger drivers than the Corolla does), so how has it managed to accumulate less losses than even a Toyota Camry? It's not like the Civic struggles to sell a crap ton of models either.

Maybe because you've got young drivers in the Civic, and young and old drivers in the Corolla. I've never seen a Civic driven by an elderly driver, which might skew the stats a bit.

Similarly, most people I've driving a Camry were rather old.
