Happy Friday

Well, still working away at the rebuild. And speaking of rebuilds, my poor truck gave up the ghost. A faulty seal caused my transmission to bleed dry, albeit with little indication of a problem until it was too late. 3800$ later and I have a rebuilt transmission and new clutch and the beast is back on the roads.

The hit on the finances is doubly strong, as I still haven't been paid for some extra work I did 5 weeks ago, and only learned today that my employer has restructured the special payment system, so I have to reapply to get paid, which will likely take another 2-4 weeks.

"Be patient, you'll get your money!" I was told. I wonder how many of our suppliers allow net 63 payment terms. I guess they can find someone else to spend 8 weeks of their life in a hotel next time.

Currently working on multiple swapchains. I had everything working the way I wanted to before, what am I doing wrong this time? windows not clearing to proper colors, present not failing but not drawing, blah! piss on it for now.

Just to keep form, I'll include a picture of something that is working again, my normal mapping demo.

Yes, rebuilds and the cost it is to rebuild something.  A system rebuilt because the transmission failed.  Hmmm.  A ghostly nudge to me.  (the transmission failed so rebuild it...)
Thanks for the story.  It means something to me.

You probably have a good truck spending almost four grand on the transmission that is almost the price of a used car.

Not really, but I've sunk enough in,( new battery, starter, plugs, wires, alternator, engine wireing, pcv) that I'd rather spend the money and stay with the devil i know, then to payout that much for the devil i don't. I need a truck primarily for work, so a car is out of the question, and as long as I get another year or 2 out of it, the ends will justify the means.
