The Old part is obvious. I actually wrote some of the code that went into the 1979 Lincoln Versaille.

The Wiz comes from my last job as computer admin (multiple non-Windows systems).

Happy to add my $0.02 when I can and happy to know I can still do basic repairs on my own vehicles (even if I tried to install my brake pads upside down) !

Oil Spill (My Own)

Did an oil change on my daughters 2007 Escape 3.0L today. I was feeling proud of how I put down some paper lawn bags before I started so as to not getting drips on the drive. I'll bet I was done in 15 minutes (I think it took longer to change the air filter !).

After transferring the oil from the catch pan to the windshield washer fluid jugs I always save, I went to move a couple of previously filled jugs when disaster happened. The jug split wide open and dump a full gallon of dirty oil on my shoes and the gravel next to the driveway. Of course some leaked on to the drive and I started leaving dirty oil footprints.

Sigh. Used about a whole roll of blue paper towels to mop up what I could. "Greased Lightening" and "Drive Up" are both good for cleaning up spills, but it will take multiple applications.
