Q: Rollout of new network site themes

Joe FriendAs promised (albeit delayed), we are posting site themes for our first group of network sites for comment. The goal here is to allow the community in general and users of these sites specifically to see how the new theming will be applied to these sites. Again, we acknowledge that this is a pai...

@Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 looks like I'm not the only one with AC problems to deal with ;)
 
@Zaid Hi, welcome back!
 
@Myself Hey there
thanks
What's new?
 
@Zaid not too much: The family is well, work is as usual, holiday was nice.
How about you? How is your family?
 
I'm good, as is the family. I split my holiday into two halves this year.. the second half is next month
I had a very unexpected failure over a week ago... the AC blower on the LR3 just stopped working. Thankfully, getting to it doesn't require ripping out the dashboard
 
12:52 PM
@Zaid will you be abroad?
 
I replaced the blower with a new unit and threw in a new blower motor resistor as well. Went to crank the engine and click-click-click the battery died
 
@Zaid From one thing to another, eh?
 
Yeah, Murphy's Law in full swing
@Myself I'll probably visit India
 
@Zaid Yesterday I found out that my wifes car is suddenly eating oil..
 
@Myself All of a sudden?
 
1:03 PM
@Zaid All of a sudden, but I have to admit that in recent times I neglected maintenance. Yesterday I found out that there is a drop of pressure while driving around curves..
 
How low did the oil level go?
 
I put in a litre of oil and the level is still below the dipstick
I do not think that the engine got damaged, that was the first time that we saw the oil light. And the car is not in heavy use.

@Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 @Ceshion First autocross in the GXP yesterday. We did a mirror course - two courses next to each other, mirror images, with a "drag race" start (mostly because the club president has a Viper, I think.) fun fact: I kept up with a C5 Z06 during the drag race section, which was about 1/8th of a mile. And his was an automatic.
Got my butt kicked through the rest of the course though.
@Myself Burning, or leaking / blowing out the exhaust?
My wife's high-mileage (160k) '07 Escalade is seeping some oil around the oil pan gasket and rear main seal. It's about a quart every three months. I'm not super-worried about it.
 
3:20 PM
@3Dave I don't know yet. I am not aware of an leak, but it was already dark when I realized the mess. I am also not aware of blue smoke coming from the exhaust.
