Bike Racing

Well, I was going to try to enter a few bike races this year, so I went to go watch a criterium this morning.  It's supposed to be one of the safest criteriums around, so I figured that I should be okay to race in it.  (Don't want to get hurt and miss my trip to France!)  Well, there was a nasty crash midway through the race; someone flew into a telephone pole.  No one was hurt too bad, but I think that's too much excitement for me! :)  The race director told me they should call it a crashterium.  I'll probably do some time trials, though.

Back in Business

Well I just wasted the past 2 days re-installing all the software on my laptop.  For some reason, it was just rotting away.  My sound output was really low through the built-in speaker, and the hard disk access was painfully slow.  Perhaps there was some driver I installed that caused these problems, but they're all fixed now.

On the plus side, I got to update all my applications with the new MSDN subscripiton we just got.  Outlook 2003 is quite nice; I think I could get used to it. :)

Back to work!
