Loopia raised their prices! Again! Just recently they lowered their prices on domains, and I thought all was well and swell, when out of nowhere they shell a yearly fee for using their DNS services. The bummer of summer.
In other news I've been hooked on Team Coco, or as it may be more popularly called by those who watch segments of the show in full: The Conan O' Brian show. I visit the YT page every once in a while and surge through twenty or so entertaining clips on all forms of random and/or interview. Canada Dry humor. There's probably enough clips left to last a lifetime, but probably not the most productive passtime either...
In more important news: 190 scientists from all over the world have gathered together to urge FN to do something about the dangerously uncontrolled levels of radiation pulsating through the populace. Here's a video presentation (feat. Martin Blank, PhD Spokesperson).
In life I've been at work at work, at work at home; unintentionally working on my tan during a very sunny fun but tiresome session of bike testing with a buddy. I've looked at and tried so many models I don't remember what most of them felt like. Apollo, Asapnäs, Sjösala, Crescent, Yosemite, Kayoba, Pilen, Stålhästen, Occano, Merida... there's so many choices, so many prices, so many opinions and options. And why are there no hybrids that combine a comfortable seat and hub gear with the lean mean frame, wheels and steering of a sports bike? Why do all sports bikes have a ridiculous amount of external gears susceptible to dirt and trouble, and thin seats, and no foot brake, and no packing rack or basket? And why do all standard bikes that do have such things have such a clumsy frame? Why is there nobody building this perfect build that'd suite the common traveler: one who wishes to work out, cycle short or far, comfortably, at decent speed, and not have to carry their bag on their back or lean forward as a battering ram when they go?
Well, anyway, I'm on my final phase of contemplation and research now... hopefully the bike buy awaits in a promising and foreseeable future... on Tuesday!
The weather's been great this week. Except when it rained. I've done a bunch of a stuff. I've summoned lunches much. I've plundered lunch abrupt and thundered back to something rushed. I'm feeling good but tired. I feel I could perspire. Maybe should drink more water. The sun it sinks but smolders. But nights aren't growing colder, and soon I'll lose my blanket, type slow and flow like banquette folks when they eat more than they can fit. And I should speak more Spanish. I really need to practice. And I should eat more Spinach. I don't why but that is. Good stuff and season has it.
