People are definitely intimidated by tile but once you do it you realize it's hard to fuck up.  The only shitty part is cutting everything with a wet saw.  I won't waste my time with manual tile snippers...ever. 

I had a shitload of difficulty with the new toilet install in the master bath.  The flange was busted up and the old valve had a bad o-ring.  The sumbitch is good to go now, though.  Apack can attest to its difficulty.

I actually preferred Zima to cheap beer.  I'm not ashamed to admit it.

So, you're actually a lady, then?

Comment 20 May 2016

Whats going to make mine easier is that it's only a 36" alcove door.  Things can be hidden there and hidden well.

Comment 20 May 2016

See, this, this is a banter thread.  One full of life advice, ripping on Jumar and Zimas.  It doesn't get much better on a Friday.

Comment 20 May 2016

There's only a difference of 1/8" between the top and bottom of the shower in width but there is a point where the base sticks out about 1/4" from the tile on the one side.  It should be an easy fix with the Dremel when I trace it to cardboard.  But once you fuck up that jamb there's no coming back from it.  There's always caulk...

Yeah.  I bought the Delta semi-frameless.  There seems to be a bit of margin for error.  My biggest obstacle is going to be trimming the jambs to sit flush against the tile and the base.

Comment 20 May 2016

I was impressed at how much it looks like actual tile and at half the cost.  Plus I can cut it with a utility knife instead a wet saw.

I have to install a frameless glass door in the shower next week.  I'm pretty intimidated by it.

Comment 20 May 2016

I remember being my freshman year in college and they re-released Zima.  We drank a bunch of it just because it was Zima and we weren't the only ones.  I think if they brought it back in today's booze market it might do OK simply because of its nostalgia.

To be honest, I didn't really hate Steph Curry until the fanboy bandwagon started.  Similar to the way ESPN blows the SEC, they've done the same with Curry.

Comment 20 May 2016

Forgot to mention I'm also done with the 21 day fix this weekend.  I felt like a fat fuck so I tried it out and it's definitely legit.  I lost 14 pounds in 3 weeks.  Goes to show it's more about what you eat and drink rather than what you do.

Software/Application decisions being made by people who don't work with the software/applications.

I've had these complaints before.  The issue I've found is that the requirements for software/applications are not properly portrayed to system engineers/admins.  I make software decisions based on the user/customers requirements.  If you forget to give me a requirement then that's on you, not me.

I've often said "sounds like a PICNIC".

Not really being a smartass.  What you said essentially is the same as saying "well we didn't lose, they just scored more points."

It is often Curry is having a bad game

So, basically, he's never been stopped?  Mmmmk.
