I suspect the old-timey bicycle will be like the limo and we will see it a few more times.

I saw the special thanks in the credits to Will at Experience Cycling and thought, huh they must have ended up talking to them about the the conversation earlier about advantages of new/old bikes just before the stinger and then just so much wow.

Notes: I used Crosstalk on Windows 3.1 to log into the library computer and put books on hold.

Also if you liked DOS commands check out Linux or Unix command lines, the are much nicer and more powerful.

They say the next big thing is here; that the revolution's near. But to me, it seems quite clear. It's all just a little bit of history repeating.

(Many thanks to Past Graham for turning me on to that song.)

Hitting the preview button is what breaks the link. phpBB is weird, always put links in [url] tags.
