I work in the industry for the last 13 years and I start every meeting with "I hate computers..."



If you need help let me know...

F-U-C-K Honda! I don't care how drunk some of you have gotten at past events, that's no excuse to not give you bikes anymore. I think I might invest in a Ural next time just to ***** Honda off.

Don't be so hard on Sean. Heck, we had one customer whose network started crashing every night at the same time, only to start working again about 40 minutes later. Since we couldn't find anything wrong with our equipment, we'd page the customer, who would drive to his office only to find the network up and running just fine (and, he naturally assumed we had a screwed up network). Long story short -- one night, the customer stayed late to see what was going on. Lo and behold, at the appointed time, the cleaning lady showed up with her vacumn cleaner in hand. Since all the power plugs were being used, she reached down and unplugged the closest (which happened to be the router) so that she could plug in her vacumn cleaner.



So, maybe Sean really did have a 'good' reason to yank that cable. Maybe he just couldn't find the cable stretcher. Or, maybe he just wanted an excuse to go riding all over town visiting all the computer stores. But, if you are still po'd at him, send him out for 50' of landing strip, and some extra sailboat fuel.

Oh yah, that'll really pee Honda off and no doubt adversely affect their quarterly profits as well.



I've heard that Iraq needs to hire a new Information Minister...your complete grasp of unreality would make you perfect for the position!

Well I'm sorry to say that the outage didn't do wonders for me as Tuesday morning I quickly ran out of things to do at work and decided to go for a quick jaunt on MO and see what was new. Iwas a bit diasppointed when it wouldn't come up, but in the end its not really a big deal because I have gotten mmore than my money's worth out of MO...and you were back up in the afternoon. Keep up the good work, hopefuully Honda will have a change of heart and you guys will able to flog a CBR600RR and see if they are as good as they look.

Don't forget the two quarts of Elbow Grease needed to lube every bridge and router in the building.

As for me, I already know, thanks to MO, that the Yamaha R6 is the best street 600, so I'll be looking for one of those with a salvage title or stolen.
