There and Back

For the second day in a row, I've had a buddy on the ride in. He must live in one of the neighborhoods along Newman Road, and he has caught me while I was waiting at a stop sign or light. We exchanged pleasantries about the traffic.

I had a 3:00 meeting at SSOF today, so I just rode home from there.

Cool! Another active cycling / commuter blog. I've linked you.

I'm an OpenBSD fan myself, but I won't hold Linux against you.

Hey Dan, I couldn't pass up making some kind of comment about your phrase "pleasantries about the traffic".

At first I thought, "Are there pleasantries about traffic?" Then it occurred to me that a lack of traffic would be pleasant. And then, I thought further and considered that a lot of bicycle traffic would be pleasant.

So, I've climbed into my brain, but I still am not sure what you guys may have been talking about that would have been pleasant about the traffic.

Noah, I'm running my site under Linux. I started with a Slackware release in 1995 and currently run a rather old Red Hat distribution. I hope you won't hold it against me either. I do prefer many of the BSD binaries I use on the Solaris boxes at the office if that makes you feel better.

Not to hijack the discussion, but is it mostly computer consultants who blog about their bike commutes? I run into lots of math professors on the road, but they don't seem to blog.
