Man what a mess up week for me Wenday the storm came in. Funny I know calfornan dont know how to drive in the snow I seen a fourbyfour do 4 360 and miss my car by inches. and I could not back up there was other cars that was in my way. But My z took the snow like a 4 wheeler or could it be the driver remember when your in snow use your 2 gear not the 1 gear or u get stuck. faster tire seem to not move as well as the second gear in the snow.

day two wen and thr. My charging did not work in my car so I had the mannic put a button in my car so when I start it I push the button and it will charge right. Well with the cluch hitting this and makeing a bad ground the wire turn to flames.

that not a big deal realy I cut the old wire out and Use my CB wire to fix the problem you should have seen the cops face when I was working on my car and he asking if I need a tow truck I told him Nope all I need to do is fix this wire and my battery charges right. He look and look dumb founded. show him the burt wire and the wire and told him what heppen. Thing is I did not need a tow truck and I got home. Doing my own work took me 25 min to deal with my problem

Today I will get getting better wire and it will not get close to the cluch again.

**** of two days. but seeing a shock cop was funny

I will be getting the eletical fix soon

blood and bloody ashes

I got one. And who could say the same fixing eletric so u dont have to pay a tow truck driver and have a micanic tell u what wrong. Try 42 miles and pay money for the towing.

I done that with the Escort I will not do it with the z unless I turly dont know what wrong.. Or the motor blown..

I learn with doing. Teacher and them did basic teaching was crap. I Learn how to read by buying books that I liked and then I learn. Now spelling that another story I m still learning.

Most of my life I m self learn. working with fire and glass I had no book to learn it. Etching on glass I was shown once and Now I want my own buissness.

Re: blood and bloody ashes

Jeff,
I am not sure if you were thinking of me, but I build computers also, both for myself, at work, and on the side as a little business. I know exactly what you are saying about no drivers and NO NAME parts. When buying computer parts (for all those out there that care), save yourself a couple hours, even weeks and months and just buy a good component, ie. not the $10 sound card, rather the SB $50 card. Yes it is more, but you will definitely be much happier. If anybody needs helps with their computer and what brands are good, let me know, I can suggest brands to buy and other NOT to. I have been around computers for only a few years, but know the ins and outs of a ton of stuff, as far as hardware goes. Now networking, I have limited knowledge, but everything else I do at work, upgrading, formatting and reconfiguring, etc.
Laters,
Joshua L.

Sorry this was not about z cars, but since you use a computer to read these... I am not advertising for a company, but extend any help as friends...

Re: blood and bloody ashes

Yes I m the one that build computers. try a dual p2 300 with 108 gigs of hard drive space that 9 hard drives scsi 3 card. two cdplayers one for game one for music and dual voodoo 2 cards. I m happy now i m doing a z hehehe wonder what I can do then. Why I need so much speed and power well games for one and if I can show the people how my glass blowing was done or etching would that be better then selling it like a catalog?

I m thinking ahead alway and the Zs may be in the past but Look at the z and the other cars out there. one Mustangs look like escorts yucko. Z are not made anymore. it bad for nissan but long run good for us.

Hmmm I first I was thinking Sever something this board needs=) have a question for you
one, only a dual 300? you can do better hehe =)
and they other how are you running games with it?
win 95 and 98 do not work with dual CPUs do you have a little thing I should know=)
Im running a AT board with APG and Sdram I have a P200 MMX its all I need right now 64 megs sdram,
Diamond SpeedStar A50 8 meg AGP 2D/3D card it was $45 and I can run falcon 4.0 at 800+600 with no problems, only 6GB hard drive 336K modem and if you can't tell Im into music so I have a SB AWE64 I think it sucks for midi so I use my Yamaha PSR520 keyboard and I think the piano on it sounds better then my real one. I going to put a link up of a song I did down at the bottom...
if your ever on Quake 2 tell me I would like to get killed by a Z owner=)

Re: blood and bloody ashes

Ok win 95 and 98 will run the dual computer but only see one cpu. that where Nt come in. Games will not work with dual only program that are design for dual p2 will work. So what u would do is have your computer the dual system have it ask u what operating system u want to run Like dos, win 98 or Nt.

Thing about Nt most of the time Nt dont like games. That why U would need a menu system

Re: blood and bloody ashes

Basically you need to make your machine a dual boot, like what lestat is talking about. That is what I did to mine. Caution: It takes up a lot more space on the hard drive. I run NT for business stuff, CAD, etc, and 98 for games, etc. NT does NOT like games, and is very hard to get some things working sometimes, but it is VERY stable. It is easy to do, but I would recommend having at least two partitions, on drive for 95-98, the other for NT.
