Looking Back

by on Mar.30, 2011, under Mindless Banter

Yes, this is a newer post and to a new blog format. After many years, I decided to move away from Joomla and onto something that can “get with the times”. So, WordPress is the new format and it gives me the ability to update and post from various devices, such as the iPad and even my Android phone. Kind of cool. We’ll see just how much I actually utilize it. Just one stat that I need to bring over, since it will be reset. The original had over 2,000,000 unique visitors.

So I have a decision to make. What do I do with the years of old posts in Joomla? There is no convert utility, so I have to manually move every old post. This is not an easy task and though I have started to do it, I am not sure I want to continue doing it. We are talking about hundreds of entries with pictures and videos. Some of them have files in different locations. That means I have to read all of the old posts. In doing that, I have become pretty depressed. I am reading stuff about how great things were and some of those things are not all that great anymore. Friends who are no longer friends, bands who are no longer bands, and activities that are not quite as good as they used to be. Sure there are changes in my life that are better and I should look to that as a positive, but sometimes it’s hard to relive the old times. I spend a lot of time thinking about what happened to cause the change. Some of them were totally my fault, yet others anger me because of the unnecessary bullsh!t I was put through.

After this post, the future will be back to biking. Video’s pictures, and stories will once again fill these pages. How I will get the old stuff in, still needs to be figured out.

My New Bike

by on Dec.07, 2009, under Mindless Banter

So the weather has turned nasty here. Snow has been on the ground for a while and it has pretty much shut down riding with the occassional road ride exception. A big chnage from last year, when we were still riding in shorts.

So, I had a custom Ti bike built for me. Today, I went to Steamboat Springs and picked it up.

Trail Building at BC

by on Jul.24, 2009, under Mindless Banter

You couldn’t ask for a nicer weekend. Beautiful weather, good times, playing in the sand, and a lot of feature rich trail was built. Here’s my recap.

We set up camp on Friday night. Just a few of us came out, but there was food, beer, and conversation to be had.
