With 2010 comes new bikes, new weather, new bottom bracket standards, and one more new thing here at Century Cycles world headquarters: new computers. Yes, gentle readers, I am finally putting the dear old TRS-80 out to pasture:
A calculator you can buy at the Dollar Deal$ store is faster than this old beast. Yet, I will always have a soft spot in my heart for the old gal. She has been my trusted friend for my entire 5+ years here in the bike bidness. So long, TRS-80! I will miss the hum and whirr of your bad-sector-ridden hard disk.
Meet Hal, the new computer. Nothing special about him, but just the ticket for posting these blog updates, eNewsletters, Facebook rants, Tweets, and other inter-web items with lightening-like efficiency. Dark as Darth Vader's helmet. Quiet like the deep of space.
"Open the rental barns doors, Hal," I say.
"I'm sorry, Dave, I can't do that," he replies.
So he still needs a little work. I'll start by teaching him that my name's not Dave.
