Still mid-life crisis-ing.

Gonna buy this today:

And after a year or so of work turn it into something else. I kinda like the mods made to this one, but I want to do more with the seat and rear suspension:

Also bought this, to help me feel better about being a generalist, rather than a specialist: Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World by David Epstein. And I'll be re-working my LinkedIn profile to make it patently obvious I have read this cutting-edge must-have soon-to-be NYT Bestseller book.

And other stuff.

Last rugby game of the season is on Sunday, and we are in a 5-way tie for 3rd of 4 places in the Semifinals. Pretty much locked down a semifinals position, but how much we win by will help define whether we get a home game for our semifinal match... and a MUCH better chance of winning and going on the Championship game.

Not going into the post-season as strong as last year when we were the Champions. But other teams are starting to fall apart due to the extra length of the season this year, injuries, and just tired players. But we seem to be doing better and better.

The San Diego Legion are our big nemesis this year. We shall see what happens this weekend... it would be REALLY GOOD if we faced any of the other two teams in the Semifinals, and only had to go up against the Legion in the Championship game. That would be a great final.

Not that anyone here cares about sports, but... waves...

Hm. Image links not working for some reason. Oh well.

I think it's because they are http, not https.

Nope. It's about the extension. .jpg works, .JPG doesn't even if it's not https.

The last one (https, .jpg) won't load because their website doesn't seem to support it.

Fixed the links! Thanks for the tips. Surprised that there is some code that differentiates between .JPG and .jpg
