I believe we have a formerly perma-banned member in our midst.

I liked it but the last bit slowed some. Looking forward to next Sunday.

Happy birthday btw!

I gave up Strava long ago. I was doing RideWithGPS for awhile after that. A far superior platform.

Do walks count?

I watched most of the first night. Definitely worth watching. I remember that sprint that he lost to the Russian on the Polti team. ďAnd Uchikov has everything!Ē When I was sort of fast I used to say that to people I would best.

Oh.

How did my bad taste get into your mouth?

No, but I remember those days from my college years. Drank a lot of Cuervo back then.

that is by far the worst taste you can wake up to. IMO

... unless you smoked a cigar too, at some point in the evening.

But it didn't work - people didn't want another social network site. If I wanted Facebook, I would have signed up for it. Really people just wanted to keep track of their workouts, but the venture capital people aren't interested in that because it doesn't lead to the explosive growth that they need in order to cash out.

Well yes, if you mean that shortly before they turned into social media (non-linear feed, non-activity posts) they wanted to be another Facebook, absolutely. I don't think they started that way, and I think their possibly-fatal mistake was plowing a bunch of money into those features only to have most of their users still put pictures and posts on Facebook or Instagram. It didn't make them valued like Facebook, but apparently it soaked up their dev resources. A gamble, and a bad one, since "let's build another Facebook" doesn't work.

It is, and they are, though no word on this year.

I found it informative but it could have been more riveting. Maybe in part 2.

I looked around the forums yesterday and was surprised there was no discussion whatsoever about it. Maybe in part 2.

Ohhhhhh donít remind me. And I was in Texas at the time too. Our sign of quality was the brand with the little worm in it, I doubt they still allow that nonsense.

I guess perma is all relative, eh?

I don't even know who it is. Hint??
