Our IT company shut down the server to replace a drive yesterday. During the middle of the work day (around 2PM). WITHOUT TELLING ANYONE THEY WERE DOING IT.

I was in the middle of saving a file when my connection died.

The cargo cover in a 2009 Honda Fit is a real pain in the ass to install. I spent half an hour carefully stabbing my back seats with a pin finding the holes to screw the snaps to...

I went to the store to buy a new backyard open fire grill/marshmellow thing. Wife asked if I wanted to take one of the boys to help me lift it into the van. I said no, I was going to run some other errands and didn't want to listen to the kid that got tagged moan about how long this was all taking.

After a half hour in the parking lot trying to get the damn thing out of the cart and into the van by myself.... I wish I had listened to the wife.

[Note: I was finally rescued by a nice man and his adult son who gave me the extra hands to get it up and out. It was heavy but not TOO heavy to lift. It was just too heavy and too long at the same time.]

It doesn't lock into the sides? That's the way the ones I've seen work. Not sure how one that snaps into the seats would work.

It does both. Rigid part hooks on to a couple pins in the sides, and there's a cloth part that snaps onto the seats. It mostly works without that part, but I paid for it and I'm gonna use it.

I've been telling myself that I should get one of those for about 11 years now.

Yeah, they're a ridiculous price for what they are, if I'm being honest. I can see why so many original buyers skipped them. It's as much marking my territory as utility, for me, along with the cabbie seat cover. Which was way easier; position it, tie a couple strings round the head restraint posts, done.

The pdf install instructions work well: https://www.collegehillshonda.com/instr ... ocover.pdf

It's not the roller blind type like our Prius wagon uses, it's two rigid sections with a hinge between them plus a flexible bit to deal with the rear seats being mobile. The middle clips in, the rearmost rigid section is tied to the liftgate and gets pulled upwards when I open the trunk, and the flexible bit covers the gap between the rigid bits and the rear seats.
