Doesn't matter. The motor sucks on both.

So, for those with LPLOs on Chrome -

When I've gotten one lately, I've:

1) Hit F12
B) Clicked on the mobile emulation mode -
https://cimg7.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...a90a12e1a8.jpg
iii) accessed the last page without problem.

Strangely, just accessing the last page in the mobile mode seems to be enough to get around the lock-out. If I go immediately back to the desktop mode, I'll still have access to the last page, even without having made a comment on said page.

Maybe ​​​​​this would give ​Bah Humbug a clue as to the nature of LPLOs, but he seems to be on hiatus.

They installed a pump yesterday for intravenous antibiotics.
. Dad went back in after blood work on Friday showed he has pneumonia, and his hearfailure is active. His legs were alarmingly swollen.

The TV is a 65" Sony OLED 4K, but I will say that the quality of the TV really adds nothing to Zwift. It just happened to get moved to that room when we redecorated the family room. Laptop connects to it via HDMI.

I'd like to get rid of the weight machine and get something like a Tonal.

My first impression was that there seems to be a guillotine to the left of the TV.

That's there to remind me that fidelity to my wife is very important. :thumb:

Actually, it's a water rower.

Link?

Good accident stats aren't easily found.

Not really. You'd just then have a bunch of idiots driving around in cars that kill or maim their occupants in a crash.

Just like the good old days.

Horse proximity, obv.

Trainer has arrived and has been physically set-up (cassette and TA endcaps installed - it was otherwise ready-to-go). Folds up and tucks out of the way nicely, better than expected. Don't have time to play with it, though, so I'll have to see about Garmin and/or PC integration tomorrow or Thurs.

Does winter come early at Lake Wobegon?

Not always. I live in a suburb of Los Angeles. Technically, we are in an unincorporated community of Los Angeles County, not a City. As such, residents are allowed to keep animals that are prohibited in the surrounding cities, including chickens and horses. It is not uncommon to see people riding horses along the streets in my 'hood.

Where all FTPs are above average? No, but going-out-of-business sales don't typically cater to my riding season. As it is, this one wasn't too badly timed, though I do hope to get in another month and a half or so of outdoor road riding.

There are horses two blocks from our house as well. We live in the middle of the city.

I've mentioned this before, but when my kids were in high school, there were some kids that would ride their horses to school. They'd just tie them to a tree for the day.

On her first day, her new boss was walking through the kitchen at the Pepsi Center and ran into some dude wearing a mask making food. Boss went up to him and introduced herself. He said "Nice to meet you. My name is Joe Sakic."

The former Pepsi Center?
