I discovered a little Rialta hack for my Apple laptop that I wanted to share.
I'm lazy and haven't re-wired the stock wiring to the 12V outlet, under the desk. Because of the lightweight stock wiring, I was always encountering a problem where, whenever my Apple laptop was both turned on and charging the battery (i.e.
This also created a nasty scenario where, if my laptop battery wasn't full, I couldn't use my laptop in the Rialta (since my laptop would immediately start to charge the battery if I plugged it in, and turned it on... gah).
This seems kind of hard to nail down to get to a fair price for a used Rialta. Are these in the Bluebook? I tried finding comparable sales on RV websites or ebay completed/sold listings, but it's kind of hit or miss depending on milage, model, and year. I'm in the market and just wanted to make sure I'm not way overpaying. I've seen the 2000's and up models around 20k-35k with mostly the 2004 or 2005's fetching that upperward value...
Does anyone know what kind of price range would a 2002 FD (fullbed or even the twin bed model) go for with ~30k miles?
Any insight is appreciated...Thanks!
At least one reader bought this (amazing) laptop on my recommendation and wants to install Linux on it. It took me a while to figure out how to get it to work, so I'm sharing the method here. I'm hoping that people who know more about Linux than I do will find this and figure out how to make the battery life better.
To install Linux on the NEC LaVie:
1. Buy a USB->Ethernet adapter. I used the one that came with my Asus UX21A, so I imagine any will work.
2. Turn off UEFI in the BIOS.
2. Download the Network installer from here: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/alternative-downloads
Hey Tynan, I was wondering if it there is a way to write in latex in a sett blog. If not, is there a possible hack to perform?
I wrote up a quick diddy about getting free audiobooks with the new Kindle Unlimited. Could be useful to fellow tynanians:
Any tips on how to make the plane riding experience more enjoyable?

Some people - myself included - have a list of goals that they'd like to achieve some day. A "bucket list" perhaps, or maybe just a bunch of things you're working towards in work, hobbies and life.
I've had something like this for a few years, but what I've learnt is that in retrospect, some goals are much more useful than others in terms of improving your life. Looking back at the goals that I've set and achieved over the last couple of years, it's clear that some have caused lots of spin-off benefits and really added good stuff to my life. Other things have hardly been worth the effort.
Here are some of the goals I've set/achieved since 2012 together with an explanation of what made them worthwhile or not. It's helped me understand what will be worth working on in the future, and might give some readers some ideas.
I learned a lot on my first renovation and after living in the RV for a year I got a lot of scheming done.
I've started painting over that painful brown color using a light coffee palette. I'm putting a layer or two of satan water based polyurethane on top of the latex paint to give it better water/stain/scratch resistance.
I've pulled down the ceiling again (photo 1). I discovered that not all the bolts I used to hold my solar panels on were stainless and the high humidity/winter time condensation caused a lot of rust on them (photo 2).
I'm planning on replacing the ceiling with thin vinyl sheets painted using the above technique, glued directly to the insulation. I'm also considering using fiberglass reinforced sheet of some sorts, http://www.homedepot.com/b/Lumber-Composites-Paneling-Fiberglass-Panels/N-5yc1vZbqk5
It's as expensive as the solid oak sheets I had used, but has the perk of being synthetic, so prolonged moisture during the brutally humid winters wont be an issue.
I'm working on replacing my speakers, and wondering what everyone's experience has been?
The stock setup is weird: there's 4 wires going to the tweeter in the dash. Googling around suggest there's a weird, built-in crossover in the tweeter, and the other set of wires is what feeds the midrange in the door.
Also, there's impedance mismatches: tweeter is 8ohm, midrange is 3 ohm.
Bonus if anyone can describe how/where to hookup the headunit to the coach batteries. :)
As promised, here are a few pictures from the beginning up through the raising of the walls. Still have the roof rafters and roof to install plus a whole lot more, but it's starting to come together.
