Pre Gotham Rally

Gotham II Scooter RallyTomorrow, we get out of work a little early, and load into the Saab for a trip down to NYC for the Gotham Scooter Rally. From everything we’ve heard, Brooklyn will be burning by sunday night.

Presley and I are relatively new scooterists, and this is our first rally. Jason and Kim of course are responsible for this… so a special thanks to them for all their help getting Lisa’s ’63 Lambretta Li125 on the road. If all goes well, next week I’ll be riding a 25-year old Vespa p200… sadly I won’t have it for Gotham, but I’m psyched, nonetheless.

Sooooo, look out NYC. Can’t wait to see you Kunta, Renee, Jenna, and the rest of you Yankee-liking swine.

Terminal blog

I stumbled upon an interesting blog design in my referralsklypso.com. Paul used “Terminal” for his blog’s typeface. It’s quick-loading, lean-and-mean, but Paul chose to forgo the CSS trend, and build it with old-fashioned Tables.

As soon as I saw it, I had a flashback to college and X-Windows, Lynx, Emacs… And then back to high school and 9600-baud connections to BBSs. We’ve come a long way, no?

My Powerbook is on vacation

Forgive the silly title — I had to send my 12-inch PB away to Tennessee (or wherever Apple does their heavy tech support), because the slot-load drive was locking up.

So this is my first Apple hardware issue…

In 4+ years with my Dell, the only hardware issue I ever had was my Dell Trinitron monitor (which went bad at 2 years, 11 months).

Is this an indication of what I can expect in the future?
