    That looks like a sick computer.
    Would you mind giving us some specs, and close-ups of the rig itself? :)

    VERY cool. I want that computer. :)
    What kind of CPU is it? By 7700K, you mean an i7/i9 Intel core, right?
    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks everyone. I use to do some track days in a MINI Cooper S I use to have but had to stop due to neck problems with the g forces and the weight of my helmet. I've had three neck operations. So it's the next best thing to driving on the track.

    Here's a link to a Pro Race in iRacing which is the service I use.


    They are much faster than me. The best of the best. The top Pro Series F1 driver for the 12 race season (best 8 races) wins $10,000 for the Championship.
    The tracks are laser scanned down to 1 mm, they are so accurate that real life racers use them to practice on.

    You see that lady walking across the paths of them getting ready to start? Also, look how many kids are cheating on the start line already! :#

    I NEVER did like those TOE pedals! I tried them and thought, who thinks these are a good idea?

    I believe this cat's name is Dan Quinn.

    It reminds me of the various Wack-A-Mole-Game attempts Quinn has tried to fix the Atlanta Falcons not realizing how one thing can affect another.

    If you have a favorite team that is not doing well, maybe you can give him a name.

    I use clip-in pedals on my road bikes. Steady state riding, they keep your feed in the optimum position over the long haul. They do require a bit of technique to clip out, however, not good if something sudden happens. Yep, I've fallen because I couldn't get my foot clipped out in time!
    tqefy1x4hrdd.png
    I've tried but abandoned clip-in pedals on my off road bikes. Too many instantaneous changes in terrain on the trails. I now use BMX style platform pedals with threaded studs on them for grip. Kinda a compromise, but it allows for my feet to fall off the pedals and brace from falling if needed.

    Saw Jorma & Jack (Hot Tuna) Thursday night in Randolph, VT.
    Kind of a laid-back show (compared to other times we've seen 'em) but good -- and, I've gotta say, Jack Casady is a heck of a bass player. I have seen 'em before but I never really appreciated how good he was. He's in the echelon of Entwistle (my own personal rock bassist hero), which I hadn't really appreciated until this week.

    7wbo1xfjbbw0.png


    So, the deal was -- for an extra 30 bucks, one got a seat in the front two rows, a copy of Jorma's recently-released memoir, and a "VIP" :p meet-n-greet with Jorma after the show. I sprang for the "VIP" tickets to get good seats... the book was a bonus :)

    h0l2qb5b2qq3.png

    Interesting factoid; Jorma Kaukonen is left handed. I did not know that. As a fellow, sinister south-paw :) I asked him why he played guitar right handed. He said, "There was no way my father was going to spend the extra money for a left-handed guitar!" So right handed it was. :|
