you must have missed the beginning of it all.. This is the tail end of
what for us is a pretty minor OT thread (good job guys! We kept it
under control). Someone, I forget who and it doesn't matter, made some
analogy to bicycles going against traffic in what was otherwise an OT,
but linux related thread. That errupted into a brief
shower of fire about bikes vs cars and subsequent OT ramblings about
all sorts of bicycle related issues. We're now down to maybe 1 or 2
messages a day in the thread and it looked to be dying... until you
brought it up again... ;)
