I guess I should start watching tv and movies so I understand what 1/2 the postings are about.

I thought you purchased a pair and were waiting for delivery. I got a pair on sale at a local bike shop and had them custom fitted. They charged me $50 for the custom fitting which I thought was ridiculous. I have the R300s which are wearing out. The new ones fit nice and IMO look better but they are warmer.

I was given a couple of pair of the 315s. I may like the old ones better and they are cheap on close out.

Can I get banned and see quirky quotes about me in people's signatures and such?

Here is a very cool active graphics time line showing the building of the space station. I did not realize how large it is. https://i.usatoday.net/tech/graphics/...line/flash.htm

The history channel had a show on last night about Extra Terrestrial visitors and those that claim that the moon is their base of operations. They live inside because its hollow. They laugh at our space station.

the other night they had an interesting show on: "The Prophets of Doom". It was two fun filled hours of different experts talking about the threats to America and ways to avoid calamity for the country as we know it.

Was supposed to record a conference today. Showed up and the computer was not being cooperative. Took me an hour to figure it out. The first lecture was missed but it seems to be recording fine now. Thank goodness!

Oh, and cool pics Mikey. How does your family know the folks in Jamaica? Seems like there's a good story in there somewhere.

Mmm yeah, why are those things so good? They are so bland and buttery, and have a disturbing lack of chocolate. My co-workers bring them into the office a lot.

You answered your own question. You could dip cardboard in butter and it would taste good.

Just doubled the lumen output on my light for $11 delivered to my door. It's amazing how far LED tech has advanced in just the past 3 years.
