    What beer are you drinking RIGHT NOW?

    No yachting, just juicing.

    New laptop time.

    I recently got a Lenovo. SSD is nice. It has a touchscreen, which I wasn't sure about, but I dig it. It's better for navigating than the touchpad for some things, like maps or other graphics. Not a fan of the gold-ish colored keyboard, though. Wish I got black for the better contrast when typing...

    Coronavirus

    Apologies if this was already posted: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-020-19802-w?fbclid=IwAR1kLB9oZh6RVfir62xl82ivcb0iVdeY2eGR8jFKhU3JfB15aBnX3U0GOqs Appears to challenge the ideas about asymptomatic spread. If true, how do we explain the current surge of cases?

    The DIY thread - DIYourself

    Yeah, that happens. Possible causes for that are: leaving the tape on too long, insufficient surface prep before painting wall, or wall paint not completely cured. I've only tried the green version, but they also sell the "sensitive surfaces" version. I don't recall seeing it in the stores, though.

    The DIY thread - DIYourself

    Have you tried this stuff? Pricey, but works better than the standard blue tape. I smooth the thick end of a shim and use it to press down the edge of the tape.

    It ain't MTB without the occasional OTB.

    Coronavirus

    Hard to picture them doing it. Distributing 2-300 million doses (twice) will be challenging enough. My guess is that they will ask people to self-certify that they didn't test positive. Imperfect, but should weed out a good number. Either way, I'm sure they'll check in with everyone on this...

    Coronavirus

    Have they ever done this for other vaccines? Pretty much every infectious disease has an incubation period where no symptoms are present. Maybe not 10 or more days, but still. I'm guessing the reason for not giving the vaccine to people who've already had it is that it's unnecessary because they...

    Have you ever regretted spending extra money up front for a better build?

    I think this response is probably more reflective of the majority on this board. However, the main downside to this approach is depriving yourself of the pleasure of upgrades. If you bought a complete bike that was perfect, what would you do with your spare time and money?:p

    Xpedo mforce ti pedals?

    I'd look elsewhere to save weight. Back in the day, I had a titanium bottom bracket spindle fail. Granted, it lasted a number of years, but it's not fun when it happens. A pedal spindle is way thinner than a BB spindle, especially inside the pedal where you can't see it. And it's most likely to...

    Coronavirus

    I've stayed away from this thread because it reads more like a discussion of a fantasy sports league than of a deadly pandemic. But in light of the news about vaccines, which presumes that the end is in sight, I think it makes more sense than ever to lock things down until the vaccines are...

    Real Estate Attorney & Home Inspector Recommendations - North NJ

    I used Joe Judge for my inspection in Newton. 908-889-0022. Responsive, thorough and professional. Used my Monmouth County attorney. He's fine, but it's probably better to get someone who knows the local flavor.

    What beer are you drinking RIGHT NOW?

    One of my all time favorites. Tempted to get some more while it's still around. Which Wegman's?
