Introduction Follow the path of the independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the dangers of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of 'crackpot' than the stigma of conformity. And on issues that are important to you, stand up and be counted at any cost.--- Thomas J. Watson--------While aspirations to glory elude me I want to better my skills to be able to reach places I could not before. ****** Involved in the outdoor industry in the past as DH bicycle race mechanic and later manager of a bicycle shop these days I am a desk jockey, crunching away at the keyboard... Passionate about the stix, would that be water, land or snow I have gone through phases were mountain biking was my primary passion, followed by backpacking and lately sea kayaking (salt water). Not satisfied with the "off the shelf" offerings, you will find me tinkering and modifing poorly designed equipment. I have consulted to various manufacturers and I continue to test and offer them feedback. How do I find the time to do all this? simple: I got rid of my TV. That's right, I ain't got no TV! (PS recently aquired an HD TV to view quality movies but not waste time with broadcast junk)
