Very little unix since school for me, glad vi(m) goes everywhere!

Flatballer, there's two dev openings at my work. We park our bikes inside.

It would be really cool if you could work with Lennard and hack up that frame after your tests so it's got more flex than anything else on the road, then run your tests again. I've posted questions to him about frame flex and power transfer in the past, and never heard anything back...

Fallout: New Vegas is the buggiest game ever. Stay away. Seriously. And instead of patching the constant crashes and lag and studdering and game breaking quest glitches they patched mostly exploits...

in a single player game... who the hell cares if some guy has infinite money or life or something? Does it hurt my playing experience one iota?

no hacking required, just build up one of these... flexiest frames ever.

Ergomo? BB based, but not sure if you can fit other cranks with that.

my guess would be iBike. It's the only other legitimate one (Polar doesn't count, unless you just want to show how far off it is from a real PM).

So how do you make the background on a png file transparent without a good image/photo editor?

Paint.net is a little easier to pick up from first use than Gimp. Not nearly as powerful, but not bad at all. Just select the background with the magic wand, lower the threshold until it selects what you're looking for, then invert the selection. Then copy. Add a layer, and paste. Hide or delete the original layer and save as/flatten the png.

Working on a site in Joomla! Pretty straight forward too. But I have zero web design experience.

I like GIMP, especially the color balancing/enhancing tools.

Spawn2 will turn 15 on Monday. He wants a Black Forest Cake as his birthday cake. Why?
