    I'll be looking for this, Steele-Bike. (Are you whetting my appetite?)
    No worries

    The anticipation is killing me. What could the image be?

    Don't worry, I'll just sit here twiddling my thumbs waiting.

    (I think you've just hit on one of the most useful marketing strategies ever. Always leave people wanting more. By the time your image makes it to our screens you'll have the most popular thread this forum has ever seen. )

    I'm still waiting. I've run out of popcorn also, but i don't want to get up and leave in case I miss the big event.
    I'd rather be riding.

    I keep hitting refresh in the slim hope that an image will appear before my eyes. My wife keeps telling me to leave the computer alone. My boss keeps ringing wondering why I haven't been at work for the last couple of days. I just have to see the image.

    I've started and finished "War and Peace" waiting for this image. I'm starting "The Shining" next. If your image doesn't show up pretty soon, I'll have to go on vacation without having ever seen it, and then my vacation will have been ruined because I'd have spent all my time wondering what I missed.

    Gee, I haven't been here for two days, and the image is still missing. Maybe I should go an unbend a corkscrew with telekinesis or something.

    It must be one heck of a recalcitrant image. I usually manage to attach one well within 24 hours.

    What does "magage" mean? Does it mean you have decided to invent new words while we wait for this magical new image to appear. Maybe I'll go and cook some popcorn or something.

    [looks around sheepishly] I don't know what you're talking about.

    But that's not a bad idea. Let's make up some words while we're waiting. One method which I've seen recently is to make any word into a verb, even if it's already a verb, by adding 'ise' (or 'ize' if you're American) to the end of it.

    eg. Recently my rear tyre was puncturised.

    Should we minimize or maximize, penaltywise, members who can't realize, imagewize, an image?

    Well, if I know Steele-Bike, and I think I do, then he is outside playing in his garden because of the freakishly summer-like upper 80s F weather in Iowa this week. I doubt he even remembers he owns a computer. Sorry guys, you just can't compete with that.

    OK, OK, I have made everybody wait long enough. I just wanted to build some suspense and make this post so much more tantalizing than it should have ever been. That and I still haven't figured out how to post an image.

    So, here is the link. RobCat originally posted the link to bikereader.com. This is a page on that site. The cartoon I was attempting to post is the one titled "Car Free Zone".

    Enjoy! I hope the wait was worth every cyber-minute.

    Perhaps I can help.




    [right click on the pic on the website. select 'properties'. ctrl-c on the link to copy it to the clipbaord. select the 'IMG' button at the top of the posting page. paste the link into the box that appears. simple, no?]

    I was thinking of writing a book at one stage. It was going to be set in a car-free city. However, the city was completely enclosed in a concrete car-park that was perpetually full. Since it was so hard to find a parking spot, it payed to leave your car there as long as possible. Eventually, people forgot they had cars and never ventured out into the carpark, abandoning it to roving packs of motorists that were on an eternal hunt for the elusive free parking space.

    The story was to recount, as is traditional in these situations, the story of a fifth generation city dweller and his/her companions hearing tales of the Outside, and venturing out (by bicycle of course), but first having to pass through the Carpark of Peril, combating it's denizens, and eventually prevailing, only to find that all there was Outside was an endless wasteland of roads and traffic with the occasional city on the horizon identical to their own.

    Actually, that's a lot more detail than I originally conceived it. It's amazing the ideas that come once you actually start writing - maybe I'll do some more. What do y'all reckon? Good idea for a story?

    Maybe you can write something for Australian Cyclist. I haven't seen any of your contributions there for a while...
