What part of a car oscillates with a period of about eight seconds?

I wasn't feeling great this morning, but I managed to drag myself out... in a manner of speaking. By that time, the shop was open, so I went and picked up my car. It looks great, but it vibrates at high speeds - and a bit at lower speeds, but I only notice it now that I know it's there. The strange thing is that it rides smoothly for about four seconds, then shakes for a few seconds, and just keeps repeating. It seems to happen more regularly when I use cruise control, but it still happens without. I'll call the service center tomorrow to see what I can have done, but that trip that was supposed to be next week may be postponed to the following week, and it's hard to schedule things when they STILL can't get their act together enough to figure out what's going on when.

We got our E-mail and network folders back, so I got back to work on my document between the many distractions. The hardest part is yet to come, and I've got tomorrow to get it done. I can do it, but I don't expect it to be pretty. I just have to decide how to describe the functionality. Also, my network folder went down again at the end of the day - the whole ethernet connection did. I hope it's back tomorrow, or this week will have been a complete failure in every possible respect.

As of this writing, there's still about 19 and a half hours to buy a package of six great games for any price you name. The proceeds are split however you decide between the developers and two charities - go check it out - it can't possibly hurt. Unless you miss the deadline. Then it'll hurt when you kick yourself for missing the deadline.

I have ice cream I need to eat. I think it's cherry chocolate chip flavor.
