    Thanks, @drevil. I'm going to print that out and keep it on my bike. I'm sure some cranky station manager will hassle me someday (if he/she accidentally wakes up).

    I had a locker at East Falls church. Dealing with Metro convinced me they'd lost accountability for their lockers long before I got mine. I was originally assigned a locker with a bike in it, then I...

    I understand this was a huge deal to you, and that you were upset. 911 is for emergencies where a serious crime is in progress, or there is an immediate threat to human life, though. In other words,...

    Thanks For Arranging the Meetup

    Thanks for arranging the meetup. That was an incredibly information-dense session. I left reenergized, and ready to take a deep dive into some of these datasets, APIs, and data visualization tools.

    I was a US Army scout platoon leader in a former life, so this topic is near and dear to me. Go to some place like REI and get yourself a map case. If you have PX privileges, the uniform sales store...

    ...an added benefit of the Crank Brothers pump I have is that it has a high volume/low volume twist adjustment at the bottom.
