Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I could turn 90 degrees and see my guitar equipment full-size, but I'm super lazy.

I've got no problem with scantily clad women, but I do have a problem with using them as decoration for bicycles. When I see a pretty bike I like seeing it ready to ride. When I see a girl on a bike I'd like to think she's actually gonna ride it, and is not just there as a decoration. The photographer apparently thought those bikes look better with the seats too low. so the girls can get their feet on the ground with their ass on the saddle. I think it looks ridiculous.

the fact that they aren't falling down while stradling a bike makes them better than 95% of the girls on America's Next Top Model, seriously anyone else watching that show? I haven't missed a season...

I kinda prefer command-shift-4 myself, but command-shift-3 gets the job done for this purpose. I'm not sure why you need a screen capture utility either.
