My 237s have been great, BTW. Still waiting/hoping that some Red/Black CX-1 come back in stock. Prolly not going to happen, though.

Envious, not jealous.. Just ask datlas. He'll tell you. But good thing I came back.

On our walks the mask does restrict air flow some. We breathe easier without it. But when within 20 feet of anyone, the mask goes on.

I really think about it all the time. The chicken pot pie tonight was not gross.

I wanted you to feel needed. You're welcome.

Forgot to mention I sold the steelie. $950. No shipping. I am delivering it near New Orleans when we go back in a couple of weeks. So two down and one to go. The Ti bike went up on eBay today. That Merlin CR Works frame is sweet.

I would have been tempted had they been available. Long-suffering spouse would have approved.

Aww, Jeez. So sorry. It's demoralizing, but the world is full of sociopaths and they all drive.

Probably the only good thing the lockdown gave us was that there were less of them driving. Now theyíre back :notamused:

I keep looking at the HV Giro Empire's though, dangit.

I’d like some Empires, too.

They would have hid the smudges pretty well. ;)

I feel like I need to get some semi-obnoxious shoes. I really wish my Ronald McDonald Lakes were in stock. :(

Oh, and Bah Humbug, there are some folks on one of the CK2G boards that are getting in their 240mm Kono Fuji FMs in W#1 and they're coming in lighter than (they) expected, but bang on with what I want. I've contacted the shop owner and told him to contact me if any get returned. Now I'm tempted to start nudging some people on the boards to return their knives. :lol:

It's not a flat course; they moved a LOT of earth to get that turn 1 hill. Less famous than Turn 1 is the esses going into... turn 12 I think, which are uphill and curvy and don't quite stop your heart like turn 1, but you notice the effort. A lot.

It's a really nice course where a high effort will reward you with 20mph. Love it. Miss it.

I'm not expecting perfection, but it's really unlistenable. Thankfully I figured out that audio is being sent to my main monitor over HDMI and there's a 3.5mm jack on the back of the monitor. Need to bring an extension from home to really make it usable in a non-annoying way. The headphone cable running across my keyboard isn't a sustainable solution :lol:

I've got a Focusrite recording interface at the house that I use as a DAC for my desktop, running into one of those cheap class D amps that drive a set of bookshelf speakers. I rarely use that setup but it's definitely a treat whenever I do. I'm sure some audiophiles would listen in disgust but it sounds great to me.

Sounds complicated.

Right, but you can't keep cases from going up by not testing, can you? I mean the truth is eventually going to out. Except for a few asymptomatic cases, the sick are going to a medical facility and will be tested. And by not finding the sick and isolating and or treating them, aren't you certain to get more of them?

I expect cases to go up because more people are getting tested.

Sounds complicated
