Hi, this is Allison Sheridan of the NosillaCast Apple Podcast, hosted at Podfeet.com, a technology geek podcast with an EVER so slight Apple bias. Today is Sunday, September 26, 2021, and this is show number 855.
Chit Chat Across the Pond
I have a love of numbers, and especially numbers that make sense. I was chatting with Bart and Mark Pouley about how much it pleased me when I found out many years ago that BMW model numbers made sense. The first digit (3, 5, or 7) was the body style, and the last two digits were the engine displacement, so a BMW 320i has a 2.0-liter engine. Then I explained I was distressed when they made that sort of a guideline. The 328i sedan now has a 2.0-liter engine, and the 335i has a 3.0-liter engine. It makes me crazy.
It’s a dumb reason to skip shows but it makes me happy.
Support the Show
I am amazed at how generous so many people are to support the podcasts through Patreon. I know everyone can’t afford to do it, and you know I don’t want anyone to stretch themselves if they can’t. But did you know that a very teeny percentage of listeners actually do support the show financially? It would make me really happy, if you can afford it, if you’d got to podfeet.com/patreon and find a dollar amount that shows the value you get out of the content we create here.
That’s going to wind this up for this week. Don’t forget to send in your Dumb Questions, Everything is Fiddly recordings, comments and suggestions by emailing me at [email protected], follow me on twitter @podfeet.
