    I knew it was going to happen, I am just surprised at how quick it came. You might want to figure out where you messed up.

    925 is a California telephone area code that was split from area code 510 on March 14, 1998. It covers the inland portions of the East Bay counties of Alameda and Contra Costa in Northern California.

    It was originally part of the 415 area code, one of the first three area codes created in California in 1947, which originally covered all of central California. In 1991 the 510 area code was created to encompass most of the East Bay. The 925 area code was created March 14, 1998, when the 510 area code was split along the natural border of the East Bay hills. The number was formed by taking 415 and adding 510 which equals 925.

    The area code includes southeastern Alameda County (Dublin, Pleasanton, Livermore, Sunol, and unincorporated areas surrounding those communities), and all of Contra Costa County except the western part (El Cerrito to Crockett).

    You still need to go back and check your post on 6/17. There is a big problem with your countdown.

    And yes, I will continue this everyday as long as you do or until you edit all your posts to the correct info.

    Chronology


    Predecessor
    Porsche 914

    Successor
    Porsche 944

    The Porsche 924 is a luxury sports car which was produced by Porsche AG of Germany from 1976 to 1988. A two-door, 2+2 coupé, the 924 replaced the 914 as the company's entry-level model, and was the model that finally retired the 912. In production terms, the 924 was the first Porsche model powered by a water-cooled, front-mounted engine although the similarly configured 928 was designed first. The front-engine, rear wheel drive arrangement was normal for most other manufacturers, but it was unusual for Porsche having previously only used mid- or rear-mounted engines of a boxer configuration, all of which had been air-cooled. It was the first Porsche to be offered with a fully automatic transmission.

    The first official appearance of the 924 took place in November 1975 (as a press launch rather than a motorshow appearance) at the harbour at La Grande Motte, Camargue in the south of France. The model was a success with just over 150,000 produced (from 1977-1988), and it not only helped to take Porsche out of financial ruin, but created the revenue stream needed to continue building and developing the 911. The 924 was replaced by the 944 (also a successful model) in 1983 in the U.S. market, but continued to be produced until 1985 for other markets.

    For the 1986 to 1988 model years, the car acquired the powerplant from the 944 model and became the Porsche 924S.

    This thread has officially derailed. The sequence was thrown off. There was no 927. I hope none of you expect a call from Delta any time soon. How can you calculate Euler's Formula like a real Delta pilot when you can't even handle an everyday crackpipe countdown?

    There was a 927, but it was on the wrong day. UPS skipped a day and refuses to acknowledge his mistake.

    He must be one of those CA's that is never wrong, and when he is, he just ignores it.

    YEP. I guess he did figure it out and his dates were wrong from the get go.



    924 days from today


    Want to figure out the date that is exactly nine hundred and twenty-four days from now without counting?
    Today is June 21, 2015 so that means that 924 days from today would be December 31, 2017.
    You can check this by using the date difference calculator to measure the number of days from today to Dec 31, 2017.

    That's mostly what the crack pipe is. This post is a great example.

    What is NFPA 921?











    NFPA 921 sets the bar for scientific-based investigation and analysis of fire and explosion incidents. Referenced in the field, in training, and in court, it is the foremost guide for rendering accurate opinions as to incident origin, cause, responsibility, and prevention. It is intended for use by both public sector employees who are responsible for fire investigation and private sector professionals who conduct investigations for insurance companies or litigation purposes.

    920 is a nice cozy bar. They employ a top tier staff here. Well experienced, friendly, quick, and efficient. Their happy hour, which i believe is from ?-8pm is killer (beers are very cheap).

    Aside from the great service, the thing that usually gets me about sports bars are their terribly salty, flavor lacking, hardly edible food. 920 is one of the few bars that shatter this biased expectation with incredible food. The food is so good that i even tried and loved the alligator nuggets!

    With a few dart boards, private rooms, and a large open area for regular bar patrons, it makes for a great place to consider home base. Lots of street parking and lots of parking in the back.

    I feel right at home when i'm here. If you're looking for a new spot, to kick back and relax with superior food and some beers, this is the place to be.
