Does paypal no longer charge a fee for receiving funds? Little Mikey Boy here wants to buy my Psexy PSIMET Powertap so I can upgrade to a Psexier PSIMET Powertap and I'm trying to figure out the best way to get this done, in investigating I found this:

If you have a personal account you can receive your payment without fees but there are stipulations. You get your money in the Paypal account but they only allow like 1 withdraw/month and/or have a limit on how much you can move out at one time or some such crap.

Dude. It's a training crit on a tuesday night run for fun so guys and gals can get out and race. There are 3 corners and one gradual curve. The winner gets a beer. No reason to duke it out in the rain, when it just increases liability.

It's just not worth it.

Then again, if you do 'training races' in the rain, the 'real' races in the rain would probably be safer because people would know how they should ride slightly differently.

I'm haunted by the fact that I've won the last two rain races I did.

oh, what's that you say?
yes - and since plenty of races here will have wet stuff either in the air or on the ground, we may as well get used to it.
I'm a huge fan of races in the rain, as long as I can stay warm.

I really liked working with Media Composer. Then. The older system we had used a Mac Quadra for the software, and a second Mac based slave with all the graphics cards, drive slots and memory. Two honkin monitors... system was like butter.

I wonder how long it will be before the heat in the house stops turning on for the rest of the season. They say it's 48 now, but I ain't buyin'.

Something about cold and humid that puts a chill in my bones.

Getting a Kurt Kinetic replacement soon. I wore out the Road Machine in 1.5yrs.
These people are great, kind, and expedient. I have had a couple of issues and they never hesitated to help me to the fullest.
