Christopher,

I see commercial applications. You could make some $$ with this.

Absolutely. Cadillac is a rare bird indeed. I know lots of "old school" hot rodders and a few techno-geeks...but he is the only person I have ever encountered that has mastered both ends of the spectrum. Just wish I could follow his techno guidance once in a while.

Frankly, I have no idea as to what Christopher was talking about.

As the years go by it seems as if all of the knowledge and experience I have is going to become less and less valuable. While the knowledge and experience of people like ECB and Christopher will become more and more valuable.

Which means they are becoming extremely valuable and precious to behold.

Thanks for you input guys!

Technology advances. If you don't, you'll get left behind. Story of the ages.

First with the trains at the breakneck speed of 25mph. Then those funny horseless carriages; they'll never last. And who the hell needs a computer at home???

oh wow I forgot to update my thread...

first off the bus is doing fantastic with the new transmission.. ive been driving it everywhere.. a friend ands I even took it to the Junkyard yesterday so he could get parts for his Lincoln he is resotring... what better thing to drive than my bus full of tools and with vinyl seats that can be wiped clean with a towel!

I put new shocks on it all the way around just because it seemed bouncier than it should.

out with the old

WELL SORRY FOLKS.. EVEN THOUGH IM A PAID PHOTOBUCKET MEMBER THIS FORUM NAZIS HAVE DISALLOWED MY PICTIURE LINKS SO NO MORE PICS FROM ME!!!!!

and in with the new


no more bouncey bus.. well Ok its a school bus.. it still bounces.. just feels stiffer than it did.. potholes still do give a good bang.. but doesnt send me all over the road now..

so the next project has bene seeing how to integrate better to my ECM.. running an allison purely on TPS doesnt give the fully integrated experience im going for.. when on cruise control it doesnt handle downshifting on hills properly as the pedal stays at 0%.. so im working on emulating Pedal position by use of parameters on engine loading and injector demand that come from my Bus ECM.. a micro controller can do it easily.. but I may use a raspberry PI so I can use it as a single point of display for all things drivetrain computer...

my MPGs are definitely higher, oil temps for sure lower.. coolant temps never out of line.. in fact the fan doesnt run much on the highway... and do to the decreased RPMs when the fan does run.. it doesnt eat up tons of power and is alot quieter..

im going to run it down to cincinatti i think tomorrow or weds and do the climb out into northern kentucky.. its a nice long grade to pull out of after going through downtown southbound.. if I hit traffic at the right time i should be able to run it at a good speed and see how it does.. on the flip side.. turn around and run it on the downhill and see how the holding power of the 1000 is as I tap shift it down.

I want to run Monteagle.. I may do that on my next trip to florida, slide over nashville way and back across..

I ordered a fully tuneable TCM to play with which is likely not a permanent solution, however it lets me create a fully custom tune using my EFILive that I can then send to the folks at CAC to see if they can incorporate it into my A53 (late gen) TCM... the A53 cant be tiuned with EFILive.. so i have to swap the computers to play with shift points and shift qualities..

-Christopher

What is this about? I know the A-holes at Photobucket are holding everyone's pix for ransom...but what has that got to do with this forum?

Well of course I'm not affiliated with and cannot speak for the forum ownership/management, but I'd view it a little more charitably.

A significant chunk of the forum's value was unfortunately built on the foundation of a 3rd party: photobucket. When PB decided to "take their ball and go home" by disabling images shared by free members, that significantly undermined the value of the skoolie.net site. It makes some sense that the skoolie.net ownership might say "hey, it was our mistake to allow this situation to grow as it did, but going forward we don't want any more of the value of our site depending on the good will of others."

Perhaps it's painting with an overly broad brush to disallow all new photobucket links. But maybe there isn't a reliable way for the forum to determine which PB links will work (paying PB member) and which won't (free PB member). Forum members who are free PB users could become frustrated "why aren't skoolie and PB compatible?" not realizing it's their free PB status that's at fault. And even if the PB member were paying at the time a link is entered, they could stop paying PB in the future -- those images would then break and that would undermine the value of skoolie.net too.

So no, I don't really like it. But I'm sympathetic to skoolie.net ownership perhaps feeling burned by PB and deciding to protect against pain in the future from what may well be a dying image hosting service.

I'm still not clear on what PhotoBucket just did.

Is it Kidnapping...or simply Extortion.
