I have a 2004 non turbo forester. I Pulled the transmission off a 99 legacy GT at a wrecking yard for $420 and the fucking axels are different. Got home to swap and realized they're different. Anybody know if I can put the 99 legacy GT axles on my 2004 forester? I would appreciate any help. A call would be rad too im in panic mode. 661-364-5329

How to Get the Marble Out of Ramune
Fri, 21 Oct 2022 20:20:12 +0000

I found one brand, Genki Ramune, where the plastic top is actually a twist cap. So after you finish the drink, you can just twist the top off and the marble comes out. Also makes it possible to actually recycle the bloody things. I thought there was some physical or manufacturing reason why they made tops that don't come off, but apparently there isn't, it's just that most brands don't care. I will only buy Genki Ramune from now on…

"Printer drive was not installed" on Windows 11
Wed, 01 Jun 2022 07:28:04 +0000

Looks like I had some apps open, which prevented new printer driver from being installed. Strange a running software could do that. But after closing all the running programs, I was able to install the printer driver without a problem.

Logitech G HUB Installer Won't Launch
Sat, 21 May 2022 19:19:09 +0000

It's happening again on my freshly wiped Windows 11 gaming laptop. Logitech G HUB installer wont launch again. But this time, there is no "Windows installer" processes in Task Manager.

I was trying to install version 2022.02.18. So I went to Logitech G HUB download site to get version 2022.5.263319 that was released on 2022-05-11. But it didn't launch either.

Mozilla Firefox can't find VCRUNTIME140_1.dll
Fri, 20 May 2022 18:18:54 +0000

There is a "vcruntime140.dll" in the "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox" installation directory. But there is no "vcruntime140_1.dll". Uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox doesn't help.

Funny thing is if I run "dir VCRUNTIME140_1.dll /s" on drive "C:", "vcruntime140_1.dll" is littered all over the place.

Copying one of the "vcruntime140_1.dll" into the "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox" installation directory fixed the problem. Firefox runs without any issues after that.

Backup and Restore (Windows 7) - Windows could not find a backup for this computer.
Thu, 19 May 2022 21:07:09 +0000

That's a very common misconception and one that had taken me all night to figure out. I experienced it with Windows 10 and Windows 11, but I'm sure it'd be the same on Windows 7 and Windows 8. The reason Windows 10 and Windows 11 doesn't show the backup is because I've boot into Windows normally on that PC laptop. It can't restore the backup onto the hard drive or SSD while the drive is running the current Windows instance.

To restore the system image, you'd have to boot the PC from the Windows system repair disc that it asked whether you wanted to create after creating a system image.

I didn't have a Windows system repair disc, but I happened to have Windows 8 and Windows 10 set-up disc on USB flash drives. Booting up either of them allows you to restore the system image onto the hard drive or SSD by following these steps:

  1. Choose "Repair your computer" rather than installing Windows.
  2. Select "Troubleshoot".
  3. Select "Advanced options".
  4. Insert the system image drive into another USB port.
  5. Select "System Image Recovery".

Voila! You should see your dated backup image automatically selected for restore.

Lumber Selection: Nominal Size vs. Actual Size
Tue, 01 Mar 2022 08:21:01 +0000

You ever wonder why you bring home a 2x4 lumber only to find out that it's about 1.5" thick and 3.5" wide?

That's because lumber is identified by its nominal size in the stores. The nominal size, which is the rough dimensions before trimming at the lumber mill.

To make your home improvement job easier, refer to the following chart for the nominal sizes and their equivalent actual sizes.
