He said he doesn't have the Volvo anymore, anybody know what he's driving, if he is here?

Grumpy, I think I remember from the twitter thread you do video editing, right? I've been using a trial version of "Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 9.0", is there anything else I should try before I plop down the money for it? I'm on a PC and I'd like to not spend much more than $100 (this is $85).

I am the audio guy. KiddSisko would be the one to ask. I use Imovie to edit my vids. If you want to know about soundtracks, I can help with that.

I guess I'll just get Vegas since I've already figured it out and it's only $85.

Now, soundtracks... I need good running beat music to use for videos with people running.

Now that the "real" thread is open (and I'm sorta glad I missed all of that) do you guys want to keep this one going?

Just asking. Makes no never mind to me.

I was going to pick him, then the first week kind of blew it for him, then he got into that split and is back in it to win it. He's #1 pick for me again.

yeah, but usually not until they start going up. the "flat" stages are usually really formulaic, but this year is different, if it werent may i would think i was watching the vuelta.

i'm still pulling for him. the guy has more heart than most in the peloton and is more interesting, to boot. I think he just auctioned off his rainbow jersey & rainbow themed shoes to benefit a friend who has a daughter with cerebral palsy. While not much compared what he pulls in, it's a lot more than what the other guys do.
