I bought this bike for 30e so it's cheaper than taking the OV-fiets every day and it does the job perfectly. I take a train then take the "stationsfiets" and go to work.

I have 4 bikes:

- an old ('80s) batavus "racing" tandem; speedy and great for short weekend trips

- an old ('70s) Raleigh Sports, most comfortable bike but a bit too small for me, so rarely used

- *an old ('80s) gazelle champion mondial, which is my main bike

- an old ('00s) "stationsfiets", pedal brake single speed commuter to get me from the station to work and back in the town I work

You must be Dutch too. Ever tried OVfiets? Or is that what you meant with stationsfiets...

I like my Windows 8.1 more than Windows 7. To me it feels somewhat more snappy and some parts work better, I also like faster boot times. Also, as a long time Ubuntu user, I stopped using menus long ago in favor of pressing the launcher button (on keyaboard) and typing what I need. It's much faster.

I agree with the bit about launching apps. On Win7 I launched apps by typing into the start menu search, so Win8 was only a slight change in that regard. Otherwise most things seems to work as smooth as Win7. My only real complaint is that the integration between metro apps and the traditional desktop is garbage.

yeah, you cannot even get shortcuts on the desktop of metro apps!!! e.g. you cannot have the calculator on desktop or -as I do- in a taskbar shortcut toolbar

Under is very popular here in the Netherlands where i live now. I actually find it correct when the loo is very cramped. When the restroom is so small you are touching the TP roll with your legs, it's easier to unroll when the TP is farther from your leg.

Not possible to specify none as a gender.

Is this a problem?

Have you found a new job?

I have some contract work, but nothing permanent. At least I have the opportunity to improve my skills. I had gotten lazy in my last job; they're still using technology from the last century.

Hubskis.

It probably will.

The worst thing that can happen would be the demise of Reddit. Currently, Reddit is a sort of honey pot which is stopping all the mainstream hordes from entering Hubski and bringing mainstream hivemind here. Digg used to be that filter to Reddit.

I'm 34 and I used to play games but stopped ten years ago. I don't do it anymore.

I remember when mk first posted about hubski (I think it was on HN [1]). I wasn't interested then, Reddit was fine and HN was too much biased towards enterpreneurship and Apple. So I stayed with Reddit.

But now, seeing that Hubski caught on, I joined.
