    No real meaning, just can't sleep

    Its about 4:30 am and a combination of the tools that live below me and a wandering mind have kept me up. I'm mostly focusing on my big XC ride tomorrow(good ole Potawatami trail) and this upcoming school year. I really hate the feeling of insomnia, but it is, unfortunately a part of life. I just hope that I won't be too tired to ride tomorrow!

    I have been on summer break, working 40 hours a week with no computer! (well, we have a computer, but it has a 28.8K modem and is from the digital stone age) I just got this super fast wireless package, so now I'm catching up with everything

    no sleep for me = study some pre-calculus! That stuff puts you right to sleep I tell you, way better than any sleeping meds.

    Good luck on the ride tomorrow. I guess it's too late for you to go to sleep now anyway

    Super-fast wireless Internet connection here too. (well, fast anyway)

    The connection I am on is MMDS wireless. ~3GHz Licensed service. Burstable to 1.5Mbps!

    I feel for your trekkie! I have been having trouble sleeping as well. Mine is stress from work. I'm also stressing over if I'll get to go to the bikejournal.com "First Union" in Oklahoma for a Century ride. Awe heck. I better go to bed.

    PS: Hope your ride went well!

    The ride was awesome, 17.5 miles of pure fun! Endoed once, and busted up my legs with 2 miles to go, but ah well. I'm not sure of my internet, I think that it is Road Runner high speed. I remebered a few updates: I gave up smoking and it is now Trekkie4600, as opposed to 820. The two go hand in hand, as the money I saved by not smoking bought me a Trek 4600. So thats that. Later!

    I am glad to have helped in some small way, but anything like that comes from within! Congratulations, now all you need to do is quit the Nicorette!
