MDRawk: what do you use to upload to Flickr? You should be able to specify a maximum size, like even if it's a 1280xwhatever pictures, you can say that the biggest size the upload should be is 600x800. Make sense?

Also, Tink, look how cute we are in that picture. Ha! These are great, guys.

Excellent ride everybody. Once again,another big up to the ladies for a very creative trip sheet. Really well done.

Poopn': next time you should ride gears. Then maybe I won't lap you so many times.

Let's hear it for the Warehouse...and for Borders.

So,did I hear polo next Wed?

yeah, that photo would be cute... if the "2,000 DEAD" on the table didn't make me feel guilty for having fun at all in the first place.

ps- Tink, i really want a cookie.

Sorry, didn't have time to do a photoshop on the photos, just resize and uploads. I'll do better next time. (Damn, those are skills, the cookies looked authentic).

Btw, MDRawk, you can also use MSpaint to resize, (called stretch/skew). I used something out of Office2003 called Picture Manager or something. You can make a whole directory of photos get resized in about 2 minutes.

What is this polo thing of which I've heard rumors?

Send me your email, and i'll send the full size. I seemed to have cut the top of their heads off with my brilliant photo skills.

And chimbly, i was being facetious in the caption. Your bike really is the nicest bike ever...sorry for confusion.

Hey gang,

That plundering was good stuff the other night. What's the plan for halloween? And when's the next polo game?

Hey, check it - I went and showed my singlespeed to W this afternoon...

jonny - congrats on running a fast marathon! that was really random... we only recognized you because of the tshirt in the picture above.

the pirates did indeed hone their skills last night... lbk, rincewind, and Sol all got their trackstands down, spud is well on his way, and spud's a great skidder! Rincewind kicks a*s at pickup, and we all learned that the ground is very, very hard.

what, you didn't know we were getting together last night? perhaps that's because you didn't look at the calendar, or because you're not yet a member of the email list. Check out http://groups.yahoo.com/group/dcpirates/

dont forget boogerbike demonstrating the controlled, though unintentional, 0mph fall, that was very unexpected.
