Forza Horizon 3 Coming To Windows!

One of my favorite casual racing games, Forza Horizon, will be coming to Windows! I’m so excited! It was one of the very few games that I played on a console and I was never able to play the second one as I don’t own an Xbox One and it was an ugly port for the Xbox 360.

Six (Plus A Bit) Years At Automattic

Today marks my sixth anniversary of officially being hired on Automattic. As I’ve mentioned before though, I had been on contract for 9 months before actually being hired.

Since my last anniversary, I’ve joined the VaultPress team (I can’t believe that’s nearly been a year too!) and have been enjoying the change of type of work that’s come out of that.

I’m still enjoying working for this company as much as ever and I don’t see myself ever leaving. Oh, and have I mentioned that we’re hiring? 😉

New Exhaust On The Viper

Over the weekend I installed new exhaust on my Viper. I’ve been wanting to do it for years but I had to wait until I finished paying off the car to be able to afford it. After making the last car payment in January, I splurged and went for it.

It’s hard to capture the sound and especially how loud it is, but here’s a video that my friend made to give you an idea:

The old exhaust had 4 catalytic converters, 2 per side. I replaced them with a pair of higher flowing ones and that had 3″ pipes instead of 2.5″. They’re made by Random Technology.

I also replaced the cat-backs (mufflers) with ones from Corsa Performance.

My friend Jim was kind enough to offer both his lift and a helping hand to get it installed. Installation wasn’t too terrible but there were a pair of hard to reach bolts to remove the side sills and one of the cats was a pain to get on due to fitment issues, but overall it went fairly smoothly!

Father & Son Cars

My dad swung by Cars & Coffee this morning with his late 1960’s Triumph TR250. I grew up riding around in it and he recently got it running again and restored. It was fun having both of our very different cars sitting next to each other, especially since his is one of the things that got me into cars in the first place! 🙂
