Gibraltar scooters
Apr. 22, 2002, 8:41 PM

First we take Istanbul, then Gibraltar:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SUBJECT: over the moon

Hi, I have just received the parts in Gibraltar, having not ordered from you before I was a bit suspect of the quality but now I have them you need to know that this will not be the last order that you will get from me, the quality is superb and the finish is absolutely great even with the transport charges I would not have been able to get these parts at the prices that I have paid.

Great Job.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

OK, who's next?

Istanbul scooters
Apr. 18, 2002, 6:38 PM

The Internet, Part 1: we just got a parts order from Istanbul. Cool. Hmmm, wonder what's up in Istanbul today...

°°

The Internet, Part 2: how is it possible that there is a single human being in existence who thinks we will even download, let alone read, let alone respond to, an email that is bcc'd to us in the form of:

Garden City Rally
Apr. 15, 2002, 11:55 PM

If you are somewhere on the Left Coast, plan to make it to the Garden City Rally 2002, May 17th-20th, in beautiful Victoria, BC. (And, if you've never done it, the ferry ride over is spectacular.) Take one look at the CCSC homepage and you can tell this is a fun bunch to hang with. Check out the school photos. -Hmmm, that's quite a moustache for Grade 9...

New blog system
Apr. 14, 2002, 5:07 PM

Well, everything appears to be working according to plan. A sunny Sunday was sacrificed to writing and setting up the new blog system, and we can now blog our little hearts out from wherever we want. Given the evident mediocrity of our posts, that is not necessarily a good thing. Nonetheless, it is all easily managed now and, yes, soon to be searchable. (Check the archives.)

Then again, consider this: we could be in your very own living room, with our feet up on your ottoman, drinking all of your Guinness because we don't have any here, and have the sudden urge to blog about your hospitality. And, if you were kind enough to lend us your computer - and no doubt you would be -, all the world would know about your kindness and feel just a little bit better that day because of it.

Thus, we could easily blog right from your den:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
She is kind and has frosted mugs. Big hugs.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Later, if the mugs grew warm, we could easily edit that entry the next morning to read:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
She's got hot mugs. Woohoo! Love bugs!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Oooh! Exciting possibilities, huh? Damn he who dares claim that the internet will not lead humanity to utopia! OK, back to the “content.”

Calling Tokyo
Apr. 14, 2002, 3:54 PM

This is the one where we test the new system and say lorem ipsum blah blah blah, lorem ipsum blah blah blah, I don't know Latin but there are some Latinas I'd like to know, know what I mean, know what I mean?

Calling Tokyo, come in Tokyo...
