Everyone seems to be making big purchases in the form of living Congrats to you all!

Mines not moving into a house but I'm going to school in January finally after so much thinking and dragging my ass. Although it means moving back to Toronto. So we'll have to have a meet before I leave so I can say farewell and good to everyone

Yea. It's time to focus both of us on schooling. She has 1 year left and can transfer her credits. As for me, I'm going to focus on networking and get my certs so I can become an CCIE or something of that nature so I can net some nice $$ later on in life and work from home (not to mention being able to buy a home). But I believe at some point, we will move back here as Ottawa is to beautiful to leave forever.

I really like Manotick, beautiful little town. Too bad I can't buy a house there too...

On another note, idler pully came off while driving, timing belt snapped, and I pulled over just as the car started to heat up and power steering was lost... thank god for large country road shoulders!

The guys at Autovation mentioned I might need a new timing belt tensioner...not sure yet if that was the cause of the idler pully coming off, but the belt was brand new. Driven it less than 200kms since I had all the work done, kinda discouraging

I doubt its the actual tensioner. It happened to me on track and it was the bearing that blew up

Although a new tensioner isn't that expense and is good peace of mind. Pm scotch an he'll order you one!
