Got tunes again

I reinstalled the car stereo last night. Yippee! I got to drive to work today with something other than my inane thoughts bouncing inside my skull (I cranked up The Decemberists).

Since this doesn't fall under health or safety, I couldn't buy anything new (as per the compact). I had lost the screws that secure the mounting plate to the amplifiers, and didn't have anything in the spare-parts bin that would fit.

As luck would have it, zip ties work just great for non-structural applications! Two zip ties later , the amps were secure (which is one more point of security over the last install. Those screws get lost so easily).

You don't buy things like screws for repairs?? What if you get a hole in your clothes, are you going to buy thread to repair them? I think repair items ought to be exempt. (a stitch in time saves 9)

Also, i think screws are more eco friendly than zip ties, but i guess that depends on how long the zip ties last. screws are forever, sorta.

i dunno. i'm in an expansion phase. i'm going to go buy a tweed jacket. maybe i'll look at the used store by my bike parking, though.
