Off to The Shop!

It's been quite some time since I last worked on the bus. Something about the spring weather around here motivated me to finish it up last weekend and get it ready for the shop. It only took a couple hours to pull off the remaining items I could, and then I called the tow truck. He showed up this morning, and now it's off to the shop for body work and paint.

With any luck, when it comes back it'll look like this one. I doubt it though - there's going to be quite a bit more work to do on suspension, electrical and interior. Estimated time at the shop: 6 months to a year. Below are some "before the shop" pictures I snapped.

Free Wireless along 16th Street Mall

First of all, I'm amazed that my Tips for Productivity and Happiness at Work generated so much traffic. It even ended up on for crying out loud. 800,000+ hits on Saturday alone. Yikes! yikes

While today's story won't help you get disconnected and enhance your productivity, it might enhance your happiness at work. If you work in an office like I do, where you can work pretty much anywhere, you'll be happy to know that Denver's 16th Street Mall now has free wireless. That's pretty damn cool - especially since our offices are on the mall. Hat tip to Greg, who sent me this article in an e-mail.

Update: I forgot to mention, I'm pretty damn impressed that Roller was able to handle all the traffic this weekend.
