Okay, so I have actually had this car for a little over a year. But it has only been until recent that things were settled down enough to allow me to work on the thing.
The following posts in this category will detail everything I do to the car and (hopefully) shed some light on any questions people may have facing a similar project.
Yes, it can be done.
Over the years it has been asked: is there a way to retrofit a glass sunroof onto a W201 (190e/d). The answer has always been “perhaps” or “maybe” or “I don’t know”. Well, here is your official answer: YES.
So chances are, if you purchased a set of Dahlquist speakers and they have never been re-coned – they almost certainly need to be.
So eventually, I plan on recapping the entire crossover. For now, I plan to merely bypass the variable pot that adjusts the treble. I did this by using 2x 12 Ohm sandblock resistors and now have the midrange/tweeter permanently “centered”.
So as a continuation of my Dahlquist DQ-10 rescue project, it is time to build the cabinets.
Here, I will document the entire construction of our new cabinets.
This will be the first of several posts that cover the restoration/rebuild project of my recently acquired Dahlquist DQ-10 loudspeakers.
Here I will cover the details about these speakers, outline the specs and show you what I am starting with.
Here is a simple but very effective backup script I have used for years.
It handles filesystem and MySQL backups, performs incremental filesystem snapshots, allows commands to be executed before and after each proccess, etc. It performs the backups via ssh/rsync and uses mysqldump for the db backups.
So I was tasked with setting up backups for our Percona database servers this week and it had to be as follows: full backups Sunday night and incremental backups the other 6 nights of the week.
Of coarse, I could have done something creative with 7 crontab entries, but where is the fun in that?
So I took a peek online and there is very little for handling such a task with innobackupex. The couple I did find were rather clumsy or over-complicated and just did not work the way I thought a rotational backup script should.
So here is the first release of my database rotational backup script.
