1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    yep, you and everybody else in the f'ing 5 boroughs flew up from their beds.

    it's mostly for drivers, and when when the whole program started a number of years ago, you'd hear radio warnings and highway electronic signs indicating the vehicle in question and license plate number. now most phones have these alerts built in (unless you're like me and turn it off).

    why somebody thought it was a good idea to do at 4 AM in a city where the majority of residents don't have cars and will not be driving to work is beyond me.

    There's a disgusting new commercial development by my parents' house.

    I am not OCD or anything like that, but there are some things I worry about to an irrational degree, such as fires. Today I got all the way down the stairs in my building when I decided I should go back up to my condo to make sure I turned off all the lights. (On account of the lights might start a fire if they are on.) It turns out I had turned the lights off. This happens fairly frequently, and is annoying.

    Just moved from my girlfriends place to a 663sqft 1br1ba place. I call it the Lonelyman Floorplan.

    Figured I'll do this for a year, save money, get a new car, then maybe move. But fuck, this sucks.

    I like living alone personally. Maybe I'll end up with roommates again (really can be a lot cheaper) but I am neurotic enough that it is difficult to live with others.

    Was your GF's apt a lot bigger?

    She had a townhouse, north of 2,000sqft. She was house broke, but it was a nice place in a ghetto neighborhood. Ghetto enough I wouldn't let her walk the dogs at night.

    Not sure if I'll like living alone. I really liked the last situation. I hate roommates, but liked the girlfriend situation.

    Any of you baltimoreites know where somebody could buy a used bike from a shop/market (not craigslist)? Preferably somewhere that actually has bikes available to sell.

    Wife and I have a place smaller than that, and it can be really good for prioritizing what you need and what you don't. Being in a place by yourself is going to suck right now, especially if the break-up wasn't your idea. But go out, enjoy yourself (maybe with friends you may have neglected during the relationship), go to the gym (if that is what you have neglected during the relationship), make yourself available for new events and opportunities, watch Swingers before you make any embarrassing phone calls, and just give it time.

    L'Inc, I've noticed that your posting seems to have adopted a new idiom (that is something that was not there before). To what do you attribute this change (that is what caused it)?

    Not too bad. Thanks, man. Wasn't my idea. She dumped me because she says I'm not ready for kids and marriage. I'm not, but I explained I could work on getting ready. She wouldn't even try it. I said, "So you're going to dump me and find some guy within two years to have a kid and get married? You don't think waiting a year for me is quicker and safer?" She didn't respond. I'm pretty torn up but, life goes on. She was the first girlfriend I had that I didn't want to slap every time she opened her mouth. That's something special.

    Thanks.

    Nah, just trying to advise someone who just moved there on how to buy a bike. People always assume that because I dabble in bicycle racing and ride a lot of bikes, I can tell them whats the best crappy hybrid they can buy at some overpriced shop.

    I don't know anything about those bikes. I haven't bought a bike from a retail bike shop...ever!!! Everything I have was either acquired used, built up from parts by myself, or a custom order from a tiny shop that doesn't even carry an inventory.

    My usual advice is "don't buy that" followed by some explanation on what to look for in a used bike (various marks of quality that can distinguish something good or identify something as not worth it). In chicago, I send them to a coop that usually has helpful volunteers and a good array of used bikes (priced a little high, but they warranty them for a bit and will have replaced anything that was broken or worn out). But when they aren't willing to make a list of potential craigslist bikes for me to ya/nay and still want my help....wtf do they expect?
