A few months ago I fixed an issue where the sunroof on my H3 Hummer wouldn’t properly drain the water. Which would make for a surprise after a particularly heavy rainfall. The problem was from going off-road with the Hummer and flinging mud and debris everywhere with the sunroof wide open. By design, all sunroofs leak which is why they have tubes to drain the water. If the mud and debris is forgotten about and never cleaned out, it tends to get jammed in the tubes. Once the H3 Hummer sunroof tubes are clogged, the water has no way drain Continue Reading
After some research using the internet on PCM’s and Tuning, I found out that I don’t have the latest tune / reflash from GM for my H3’s 2006 3.5 L (211 CID) L52 I5 cylinder engine. I was able to check my vehicle by using a simple OBDII sensor I have and cross-referencing numbers using TIS website by entering the VIN number. I compared the tune number from my previous post P0455 & P0442 ECU Fault Log H3 Hummer where the Vehicle Calibration ID on my vehicle as 12606370. The tune 12606370‘s description mentions that it is for “New software Continue Reading
About year ago in my dashboard a light bulb for controlling the vents went out on my H3 Hummer, making it difficult to see which setting I had the ventilation on. A few months later, I had two light bulbs that didn’t illuminate on my HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) Control Panel which began to make choosing the setting on the instrument panel difficult at night. I called up GM about getting it fixed but all they want to do is completely replace the GM Part No. 15840354 CONTROL, A/C Instrument Panel, or with the part ACDelco 15-73909 GM Continue Reading
In my opinion, the movie corporation needs to wake up to the 21st century and realize that formats like DVDs and Blu-rays are dead. When it comes to Google Play and iTunes the prices these companies charge for movies is bloated at best in my opinion. I can compress Blu-rays down to 1.6GB on average with a nearly unnoticeable quality loss. As far as I’m concerned, there is no reason not to compress data. As a proof in point, the newer HBO series Silicon Valley is a company that has some extremely good compression logarithm. My final point that they Continue Reading
Just the other day, while driving back from a weekend of packing parachutes at Skydive Alabama, my H3 Hummer crossed over the 130,000 mileage mark on the odometer. I think that my H3 has entered it’s proving grounds now. This mileage period from now on shows how well built the vehicle really is. With a goal of 250,000 on the odometer, I want to reflect back on the vehicle’s performance so far. While I wish I had more power from the engine, however the 3.5 L (211 CID) L52 I5 has never let me down in all those miles. The Continue Reading
About year ago my ECU light came on in my H3 Hummer, noticeably after some fun off-road. I grab my cheap Chinese OBD-II to Blue Tooth scanner from eBay, it doesn’t work with Fords, and open the Android application “Torque” . The scanner had no problem grabbing the code and I was able to see the error report in the computer. Fault log report generated by Torque for Android —————— Vehicle VIN: 5GTDN136X68227871 Vehicle Manufacturer: Unknown Vehicle Calibration ID: 12606370 12601134 1260 Current Fault Log —————— P0455: Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (gross leak, check fuel cap, piping etc) Continue Reading
In with the new, and out with the old. I’m dumping my old shopping cart software in favor of the more popular WooCommerce. If you’re interested in why, well I have my reasons. I’m theme developer, and I don’t need some shopping cart software attempting to do what I can do better. I would rather the shopping cart software use as many of the well polished built in WordPress features, instead of reinventing the wheel. Some other odds and ends also bothered me too. However those details are rather boring to explain. I’d like to make things fun for you Continue Reading

I’ve been hard at work for the last few months or so on how to introduce a new direction with website menus. Touch screen devices are every where, even my laptop has it, and I want to develop a menu that didn’t leave behind the old mouse and keyboard. This has been difficult for me to figure out a solution that I felt like it really worked. This is why development on my themes has tapered off lately. Been stuck on, “How” to include both devices and make it look good. I saw other websites get close to what I Continue Reading

The Spartan Chin is a skydiving camera mount for use with the G3 Cookie Helmet and a GoPro Session or a GoPro Session 5. Instead of mounting the camera on top of the helmet which most skydivers traditionally choose, I decided to change directions and mount the camera as close as possible on the chin for some key benefits for myself. Before exiting the plane when I'm fun-jumping, I can read the screen on my GoPro and see that it is recording without taking my helmet off or bothering someone else to check the recording status. The extra headroom is quite helpful for the muscles in my neck and also helps reduce the number of scratches to the GoPro's lens. When I happen to jump on a Pro-Rated Skydive, or perhaps land off, I have handy a packing tool with me.
