You Shall All Covet The New Addiction

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

So I am getting a new computer at work tomorrow. Apparently they are locking down a lot of stuff, I may not be able to lurk during work hours anymore. How will I know what is going on with all of you...my online fake friends

everyone is also somewhat worried about doing actual work with the limitations, just a little.

Are you sure it was the cold temerature and not the cold fact that you are now 30.

Happy Birthday, Fred! Do not come by the forums tonight if you are ripped (as I would be) . . . . drinking and surfing is(sic) unsafe.
