I texted that info to Harry.

Is this procedure helpful for jumping out of a moving vehicle before it goes over a cliff?

EV Gatherings are scheduled for the 6th at GC and for the 20th at HTB in October 2018.

Holiday EV Gathering Schedule:

3rd and 17th November
1st and 15th December

Then a 3-week jump over Christmas and New Year to:

5th and 19th January, 2019

Of somebody wants or "needs" a Special Gathering during the holidays or the 3-week gap, please suggest something, and I will talk to the management about getting it on the schedule, or ... just having a "custom" get-together.

Cheers to All, Gary

I just installed received and installed Version 9.0. I have not tried any new features yet.

To Gary and Gene: I had previously reported that my Cat6 cable in my new sealed wall could not pass signal although it passed continuity tests on all 8 pins. After replacing connectors on both ends, I now have this Cat6 cable running at 100BaseT level. It will not run at 1000BaseT, but it connects to my solar inverter that only has a 100BaseT port, so 100 is perfectly acceptable. The cable run is about 30', A much longer run, about 65', runs fine at 1000BaseT in the attic. In the future, this experience suggests running Cat6 cable through a wall is tricky, and should be tested before closing the wall. It also suggests it is risky to reuse a Cat6 connector.

We had really nice Gatherings at GC and HTB this month, with about a dozen people attending each event. More and more M3s are showing up. Nancy even let me drive HER Model 3!

Our next Gatherings are at GC on 3 Nov 2018 and at HTB on 17 Nov 2018.

We will add a December Special Event:
Lunch & Dinner at HTB on Wednesday 26 Dec 2018 to close out the 2018 year.

Arrive 3 to 3:30 pm if you want to get in at the lunch price. Then, the HTB dinner starts at 4, with Turkey (normally carved on Wed and Sunday for dinner) and other meats carved.

I realize that many, who have real lives and floods of family (fof) would already be committed on the 26th, but at least Tom and I plan to be there. You/We might bring ffg (friends, family, or guests) just to experience something different.

Ho, ho, ho ... Gary

For Tesla drivers, here's a video of the new "navigate on autopilot" in action. 2018.42.2. Really exciting stuff! I just downloaded the new software tonight and can't wait to try it tomorrow. If I weren't so tired right now, I'd go take it for a spin.

Tesla's v9 software for the Model 3 is up to 2018.42.4 now.

Version 2018.42.3 includes
1. possibly ?? attempting to handle on-ramp merging, but not sure how well, or what it will do, if many cars are blocking you.
2. doing a fairly good job of allowing others to merge onto the freeway if you happen to be in the slow lane, at least slowing your car if necessary to let the other car merge ahead of you.
3. On a "freeway", if activated and on a Route, the Steering Assist attempts to change lanes (or suggest lane changes) as necessary to navigate freeway interchanges and getting onto the routed exit ramp.

For cars with AP hardware, even without AutoPilot purchased or activated, there are still significant safety advantages. With AP Gen 2.0 or Gen 2.5 hardware (multi-camera), the display trys to depict surrounding vehicles.

HOWEVER, please do not get over-confident in the "AutoPilot" functions. Maintain full control at all times.
