Brett is a father, bicycle advocate, outdoor enthusiast, runner, critical thinker, and former employee of B&L Bike Shop. He knows entirely too much about canoeing for someone in the bicycle industry. He almost never talks in the third person.

Thanks for the expansion and correction... I quickly dashed that off this morning and plan on giving it a rewrite when I add links. With regard to the note about the 4th level of hell: True, but do you really think Dante knew what he was talking about? I mean, the man had never witnessed the horror of daytime television... the depths of the infernal realms were probably beyond his imagining. I've heard stories of the sixth level: Macy's on Boxing Day. Similar to the Seven Wonders of the World, perhaps the speculations on the nature of afterlife need to be updated now and then to modern settings. —gnomeEvan 'JabberWokky' Edwards

2009-07-23 20:24:35   Ah, I understand. I haven't worked on newer bikes, but the method which I described was the method for all the bikes that I've worked on, which holds true. I apologize if I offended you with my changes, but I did want it to be clear that if the bike seat is too high, such as to allow you to lock your knees, or fully extend your legs while normally riding (which is what I had meant, but realize I was unclear) could be hazardous. Also with the center of gravity being higher, you are more likely to go over the front of your bike if you have to make a hard stop. I'd rather see the Freshmen be overly cautious than make silly mistakes and end up getting hurt. —Jteeples

I have been considering getting a chair and umbrella setup, grabbing a small cooler, and sitting in the middle of one of the main roundabouts (the one by the silo) and chilling there all day, on the 2nd or 3rd day of classes. I figured it would be funny. But I'm not sure if I'd be breaking any laws or not, since it's technically not the road... —Jteeples

2009-07-29 20:37:55   Hey, its cool to see another Debian user. Have you been to LUGOD? Its pretty fun and I've learned a lot. —NickSchmalenberger

2009-07-30 08:08:00   If it makes you feel better, I've been using *nix for over 20 years, and I currently use Ubuntu (technically Kubuntu and Ubuntu Server). There are probably better distros for digging into the OS (usually more simple ones), but for a nice working system, I've been happy for several years. Even as a power user/sysadmin, I can tweak system files and be comfortable that it'll not break something due to strict (or just dumb) assumptions by the distro builders and packagers. —JabberWokky

2009-07-30 09:26:50   Nice integration. —JabberWokky

2009-07-30 10:51:11   Those name redirects are left over from a few years back. They are generally left alone because there are links on the web pointing to them. —JabberWokky

2009-07-31 15:30:36   Hey Brett, don't forget that you have to change that info on the bike page today! —Jteeples

2010-02-03 17:35:01   That is a much better name for the page. —JasonAller

2010-02-03 18:39:43   A subpage would be great, but I dont know how to make one, can you tell me? I would like the name of the page to reflect the fact that it is photos for both Dr. Johnson and myself, I was also planning on putting the photos of the office on there, but I think it would be even better to have a seperate page for those. my plan is to create tabs at the top of the page much like on the Summer/fall/spring/winter in Davis pages. —DagonJones

2010-05-30 16:34:13   I must admit, I would be slightly disappointed if nobody ran at that. —JabberWokky

2010-10-01 17:23:06   Haha, thanks for catching my mistake on the firearms page. —NickSchmalenberger

2010-11-09 16:11:49   Well put. —JabberWokky

2010-11-09 16:55:52   Brett don't be so lazy man. Seriously, look at apartment sites, look at the archives dude. I can't baby you man. —anonpincher
