My Honda Fit six speed manual transmission 6MT has been very reliable these last 5 years. It is fuel efficient, the magic seats helps hauls stuff really well, and is very reliable. Recently when I’ve tried to start the car, I’d press the clutch, turn the key and the car would not start. If I fiddled with the clutch, up and down, it would then start. I’d charge the battery and even then the problem persisted. Pressing the clutch down before starting the car is a safety feature, so that if the car does start it does not accidentally lurch forward. This is a safety feature. The clutch interlock switch is depressed by the clutch, and the car starts. This is how to replace your clutch interlock switch.

Vans Hawaiian Ocean shoes. They have really thick tongues. We removed the thick foam.
Like, Little Weed did, his new Vans shoes. The box says they are the Hawaiianocean model. What he did not realize and regretted was the super thick tongue that came with the shoe. Here is how to remove it.
The Vans Hawaiian Ocean model comes with a super thick and squishy tongue. It makes it harder to securely tie up your shoe laces. Little Weed wanted this thick tongue removed, so I did.
My LG Optimus Net P690 is a small 3.2" 500 mb ram smartphone, which runs much better without bloatware, Google Play Store and the Google suite.
Sometimes certain things “outgrow” their welcome. This was true for the Google Play Store. When the Google Play Store automatically updates itself and take up precious internal memory, uncontrollably loading updates is also a waste of bandwidth and battery power, even when you’ve told it many times to stop, you wonder who is in charge of your phone. That answer, is decidedly Google. Yes, Google is in full command of your phone, and for the average non-tech person there’s not a damn thing you can do about it. I’m going to even the score here, for all the tech people out there.
Slowing down was Big Weed’s smartphone, a 2 year old LG Optimus L9 P769, V21D, from Wind Mobile in Canada. Bought for $200CAD unlocked, it only works with Wind, not Bell or Bully Red. Texts were being dropped and were glitchy. The phone obviously had some software issues. Big Weed was very hesitant to touch her phone, lest we damaged it in any way. When we did do something we did soft brick it, so there was valid cause for concern. Anyway it is now rooted, has the ClockWork Mod recovery manager, a T-Mobile V20D rom, and has been debloated. The phone runs better and faster than new.

What a pain in the buttocks. Flash is annoying me with upgrade notices, all without a way of opting out. I find that Adobe flash and Reader upgrades have a nasty habit of malfunctioning, requiring me to uninstall and reinstall the whole product. Newer versions have more bloatware than utility. I have opted to simply not upgrade, but the upgrade notices continue to come. Here’s how to end your pain.
