I went over to the dark side and bought a Prius today. "Open the pod bay doors Hal" ha ha. My plan is to still bike as much as possible because it feels good, it's fun, and it adds that extra training the other guy may not. But there are times ya just need to haul a bunch of oscilloscopes, or get to Livermore at 7AM, or take your bike to the velodrome and there's no bus, train, etc to get there esp. at night and weekends when the action's going on, and if I lived next door to it then I'd need a car to keep up my other stuff I do. Grrrr. Oh and I sprained my shoulder hauling stuff to the post office with the hand truck, turns out I chose the worst biomechanics possible for the shoulder joint and then subjected it to much abuse, gee I'm not smart.
I'm hoping I will not actually have to learn Java to drive this thing, I hate Java.
