Returned the Echo, and picked up a slightly nicer car for the next few months. It ended up being cheaper to get a long term rental through the Hertz at IBM than buy something (and have the hassles of insurance, rego, and then reselling it). I paid for a small car, but because they don’t have small cars at IBM got a “medium” car, which seems pretty big to me: a
Chevy Classic. It’s got lots of power bits and goodies, so I’m pretty happy.
Also did the ironing. Boring.
