Slept in this morning. I think I'm ready. Don't know what else could have been done.

I'll be thinking about you all, too. Every little bit of inspiration helps.

I'll be back Monday.

508 miles sounds like a bit too many miles for "fun". Maybe if I was riding it in a week's time, but in a day?

death march for you or me is going to be an adventure for Doug. Plus he has been looking forward to it for a long time. I got a lot of faith in the man.

If they didn't want us to screw up the board with useless HTML tags they wouldn't allow it in the first place....right?

What'd you fix?Kristin
Oct 12, 2001 10:45 AM
I don't see anything that's changed. Did I do something bad to your screen? Perhaps you're using one of those inferior browsers. :-)

text was all blue from your post in the subject line down the page--you changed the font in your subject line, but forgot to terminate the font statement. d'oh! once that was fixed, the time/date posted was in another format, can't remember exactly what it's called in the source, but it's roughly "message read" format. i just included in each subject line of two responses under your BOMB, returning our beloved message board to a readable state.

I remember that you work with notes (BT/DT),...are you working with html now, also? remind me to sell my stock in __________ (fill in the blank). j/k. ;-)
I wondered what had happened to my screen. Does seemMB1

fixed now. Maybe I'll start wearing nylons now too.

Did everyone see what J-Ku saw?Kristin

Everything looked fine in my end. I only apologized because my subject line was so beastly looking. From my vantage point, at least, this didn't appear to affect anything else. I'm running IE 5.50.4522.1800.

I thought about attaching an end font tag, but was aware that every subject line posted begins with a new font statement. This should have taken care of it. A new tag is supposed to cancel the last. It must be a bug. Doubly sorry! It will not happen again.

nope...looked fine to me (nm)ColnagoFE

Oct 12, 2001 1:10 PM
The tags I put out a while earlier looked just fine to me. I'm a web developer and wouldn't forget to terminate tags. The program must do it. Maybe only allows a certain # of chars?

her text looked just fine to me--no problems at all using IE 6 w/ did the marquee tags I had put out earlier. I think the program must truncate HTML code at random making using it even a worse idea than I originally thought.
Hope the weather holds up for you...DINOSAUR

Hope it doesn't get too hot, they are expecting warm weather this weekend. You have certainly prepared for this trek. I'll be watching your progress on that web site you provided.
Good luck

I think someone needs to kick my ass daily so I get get motivated and start getting some serious rides in. Who wants the pleasure of the first kick? I think half the problem is spending too much time on this stupid computer..
