shouldn't have to spend 3 to 5 minutes clicking the "OK" button on script errors and .dat/.dmn load errors
That long? how many add-ons have you installed?

Use Lucas gear oil...

Reduces slipping and grinding and lubricates better than standard conventional oils.

When you spend ages fixing one thing on your bike only to have something else break. Repeat, add nausium.

My throttle cable snapped on the way to work today. I've made it to work but now my bike is inoperable for at least a week. GOD DAMN IT. :x

what grinds my gears? when my computer crashes and my parents spend 200 bucks on a bbq, I mean THAT MONEY COULD'VE GOTTEN MY PC INTO A SHOP AND FIXED FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!!

then my dad says, oh well it's not a priority but as soon as enough money is saved (AKA the money u blew on a gas grill) we will THINK about it. that's my school computer and my flightsim rig, am I being ripped off or what?

Go get a job and get your own computer. :P

My gears are being ground down by the fact that OYS crashes randomly during serverbot checks. I'm thinking about taking my server off the list.

I like building models.
But it's ridiculous when I go into the modelling shop and 80% of the models there are Revell Tornado ECR's in different scales. The other 20% are planes that I have alerady built.

You know what grinds my gears right now?

My router keeps dropping the connection at random times. It sucks, especially when I'm trying to run a server that my friends can hang out on.

Use Decaff's method, projection, or divide up the 3 unto multiple srf's and shrink wrap each (adjusting each new pieces angle relative to the curve of the aircraft.

Irresponsible people grind my gears. Some advice: If you're going to open carry, I'm fine with that, but be responsible for crying out loud. I saw a guy last night at McDonald's with his pistol hanging in a holster that wasn't very well attached to his belt and had no thumb strap or retention system. On top of that, there were four of us standing behind him and he wasn't even paying attention to us. Not surprisingly, I was the only one who actually saw the gun (I just pay attention to that sort of stuff), but if some kid had seen it he could have easily grabbed it from the guy.
