Bike to Work Day

It's another Bike to Work Day in Denver and I'm missing two key ingredients: a bike and an office to ride into. It's funny to look back at last year and see that my first day with OpenLogic was Bike to Work Day. This year, I'm again starting a new gig and working from home (much like last June). The good news is we'll be moving into fancy new offices (in the swanky Tabor Center) at the beginning of July.

I've been looking at new bikes, but haven't bought one yet because I'm going to be traveling so much in the next couple of weeks. NYC this weekend (wedding), San Francisco next week, followed by a week of vacation at the cabin in Montana. It'll be pretty cool to come back from that and move into my new office at Virtuas (yeah, a *real* office with a window seat!). I'll likely be forced to buy a bike then - driving to work in the summertime just isn't right.

Hi Matt, as TheServerSide announced Wicket web framework version 1.0, I was thinking whether you would give a try and maybe include Wicket in appfuse and/or equinox. Any plans?

Eduardo - I plan on taking a look at Wicket, as well as Ruby on Rails later this summer. Both frameworks seem to be winning a lot of developer's hearts.

Looks like there's a nice Gary Fisher Sugar 3+ out on eBay for around $800, but I think it's more my size than yours: 21 inch. :) I wish I could justify it, but I'll have to try and be content with what I have.

Looks like the ESPN Zone servers BIG DADDY, FAT TIRE. If you can ever get your hands on some 'Exported' beer, you should try Keiths and Moose Head. I got beer on the brain now. I'm lucky that I work for a company that keeps the beer stocked in the fridge at all times (currently MooseHead).

you guys going to be throwing an office-warming shindig, or what? ;)

Matt, You've been biled on!

Stephen - we <em>will</em> be having an office-warming shindig in mid-July. I'll make sure you are invited.

Brian - that makes it second time I've been biled (here's the first) - I must be doing <em>something</em> right! ;-)

It must be fun to be "biled". :) I read the Bile Blog like everyone else, but hopefully everyone understands it's a lot like the "National Enquirer" -- 1% of truth wrapped by 99% "creative writing". While I haven't used AppFuse personally, I bet Hani's issues are "pilot error" and not the actual app. And by the way, Elvis is NOT still alive, working in a Fargo, N.D. Walmart, and married to a space alien. Jay (
