This wanker from England, no offense Scotty, basically said my statement about a Focus was invalid because they have the RS in England. Ummm...congrats douchebag?? I told him to "go back to your fish and chips w/vinegar" and to "sod off". Once again, no offense Scotty. This guy was a royal douche.

My car would miss like mad, and then drop power for a while, and all of a sudden it would pick back up and be fine. I chased my tail for months with it. Any hard 3 or 4th gear pull would make the miss start. I tried Chaney's COPs, new plugs, two fuel filters, datalogged rail pressures and shit, and came up with nothing.

Then the battery failed, I replaced it, no issue since, (over a year.) I guess uneven voltage freaked out some sensor I guess, and made the car freak out.

So I'm talking with a Citi bank representative because of an error on their site. The CSR asks me what browser I'm using. I tell her Chrome Version 24.0.1312.57. She tells me that Citi doesn't test or support chrome, but their site is "compatible" in Chrome. I laughed and said a huge company like Citibank and you don't test against Chrome? Her excuse? "We have over 100 sites and can't test them all in every browser." I laughed and told her I'm a web developer and our tiny little company tests in all current browsers. Then I explained to her that Chrome was the #1 browser for non-mobile web usage in 2012 with a 37% share. Hmm...

I usually do it once a month as long as roads are clear. Just went out a few weeks ago and blasted around there.

Didn't realize it was so popular. I was only using it to be trendy and hip. Now that I know everyone is using it I guess I'll go back to Firefox and kick it old school. :p

Yep, me currently messing with the live chat rep:

Rep: Is there anything else I can help you with?

Me: What's the capital of Liechtenstein?

Rep: I'm sorry, we are not authorized to make any comments accept the Citi bank account related issues.
Rep: I apologize for any inconvenience.

Me: Does Citi bank have any atms in Liechtenstein?

Rep: Let me check on that. Please give me couple of minutes.
May I please know the zip code of the region which you're referring to?

(Me looking up Liechtenstein postal codes.)

Me: 9489 is the postal code.
