It means I get an error 1005 page that says the owner of this website has banned the autonomous system number (ASM) your IP address is in form accessing this website.

It means I have to use my phone until this fixes itself. This has happened before.

Huh. That sounds kind of janky. But also just outside of my knowledge base so I cant say much.

I had emails rejected today sent to a gmail account but I was able to send to those same addresses from my phone, same return email, same server, same everything.
Trying to commiserate with you. Hope it helps, lol.

wow, HPI cars are now being sold at AMain again! COOL!
that makes owning a nitro Savage X 4.6 seem like a good idea.

don't think iv shared this and im bored so here's a past project. did this idk, a year ago (?) swapped speakers cause i liked the enclosures and i think they're from the 70's. from 5 watts to 180 watts. the speaker is only 4". also added the terminal cups.






and then hung them up in the garage

Cool project.
There used to be a guy near me that repaired old speakers - if it was worth it. I only used him once many years ago but noticed his shop is gone. It's a shame certain craftsman are kind of disappearing.

is it safe to assume you'll be moving the guages to the dash at some point?

saw a big ass wing with a subaru attached to it



also found a pic of a truck that (based off 30 year old memory's) looks (almost) exactly like a truck that was in my neighborhood 30 years ago that i thought was one of the coolest things on the street at the time

yeah, it's the power wire for the headlight switch. runs from the switch to the fuse box. i was wiring up some gauges and had to make a y harness to tie into the dash lights (white/red wire) the y harness swung over and bridged something and threw sparks and melted all the insulation off the red power wire before blowing the fuse. what was fun was i was sitting in the trunk when it happened. it was like 18 inches from my face. and in between me and that wire was the gas tank with about 3 gallons in it.
luckily it only torched that one wire. lightly (cosmetically) damaged 3 others (i "fixed" those with shrink tubing). and it's already been repaired, i made a new wire and have the headlight switch reinstalled. hopefully i can finish up the job tomorrow.

man i have been having major issues with that "error 1005 access denied" IP ban page. however i figured out how to "fix" it. all i have to do is restart my laptop. so it's a mildly inconvenient annoyance. but no joke, iv had a problem with it 3 days out of the last week and a half. like what the hell you know

i also flew my quadcopter at work today.
