based on the conversation erok and i had while driving across the state about the killer jams that would get you pumped up, i do believe that this “dj ez rock solid” is a force to be reckoned with.

It’s nice to know I’m not the only person who would actually be into prog nite at the roller races.

So, I’m psyched about this. The guys from OpenSprints that actually created the timing instruments and software are going to be in town this weekend. We should have newly updated software and more for the March 21st running.

I’d guess so. They’re computer nerds coming to town for some conference at CMU.

New software is here, OSX ready solving our projector concerns.

One day this weekend I am going to spend on some roller hardware fine-tuning and getting the bikes in good order.

It was a good time.
