  1. Today
  2. I've stopped watching them. Bad juju.
  3. There’s only so much that you can watch on the internet you can watch before wanting the real thing.
  4. My sentiments exactly, especially towards Barney Bike Boy and his sidekick.
  5. Thanks for the info, but the wife decided we should to fly down and drive it back over a long weekend. Chicka, chicka, boom boom.
  6. I try. For the record, I'm not really offended. I'm just bored. The wife and kids are out of town, and I'm stuck painting my daughters bedroom. Interacting with you is slightly more entertaining than watching that paint dry.
  7. Tell you what, I’ll take a small portion of my life and sketch out a researched one page overview of what I think would work for a local Austin mtb magazine. That work for you?
  8. It’s no wonder Bezos makes the kind of remarks quoted in the article about him.
  9. A printer’s thoughts... http://www.gpsaustin.com/archives/tag/sxsw
  10. So, the difference is that you only asked him to waste a smaller portion of his life on the article? I think I get it now. You feel that the context of your posts doesn't carry any weight. When you start a thread about a local print magazine, you aren't even considering starting to publish one. When multiple people (including your own stats) suggest that it is a bad idea to enter the printed magazine business, and you respond with stories of publishing moguls on yachts and billionaires buying newspapers, we shouldn't infer that you are posting those to validate the idea of a printed magazine. When you ask someone point blank to research and "sketch" and article in a thread about producing a published magazine, that article is obviously intended for other purposes. Makes sense.
  11. Interesting. Printers must be up in arms... And going out of business.
  12. Wonderful... You and most every member of this website... Even the sludge boys, Barney Bike Boy and his sidekick boy, Old Man Wants Attention. Progress.
  13. Had mack_turtle written an article on trail building and maintenance, with a focus on unauthorized trail cutting, and it was a well written article, I would certainly have suggested Albert make it a sticky on this website, and that ARR do the same. I would also have suggested that some sort of handout be made to give out at trail maintenance work day participants, and possibly get bike shops to carry copies next to their checkout counters. Maybe also use it to get local coverage in newspapers... And possibly cull parts into a short read that could be placed as signage on trails. See, notyal, unlike you and a few others here, I’d be thinking asset to use... Not problem to whine about.
  14. Haha. There’s the “take a chilly pilly, mon” deflection. You’re funny.
  15. So, here we go... What I actually said to mack_turtle... “Hey, mack_turtle... Since the matter of cheater lines is kind of where this started... Would it be possible for you to take some time... Unpaid at this time... To research and sketch out an article on the matter of trail building and maintenance... Perhaps with a highlighted section addressing the creation of cheater lines. And perhaps including something on IMBA's thinking behind alternate lines on trails. I came across a comment you made on an mtbr thread on "B" lines. Most discussions on alternate lines focus on these being lines around more difficult sections, but it can be the other way around. So maybe you could approach the matter from the point of view that all levels of riders want lines suitable for their preferred riding... But there are negatives to cutting your own unsanctioned lines.” That’s... “...research and sketch out an article...” Absolutely nothing there about writing an article. So no, I most definitely did not literally ask him to write an article for me. But maybe you don’t know the difference between sketching out an article and doing the basic research needed to do it competently, and what is required to literally write an article. Regardless, your above speaking is again yet another straw man.
