    A favour from the techy designer types

    Right now I'm working on a design of sorts, and have hit a brick wall. What I want is an infinity symbol done in bicycle chain, but it has to be perfect before I can use it. Since I'd think someone handy with design software could knock it up really easily, I'm asking here for some help. My...

    A to Z of Sydney suburbs, just an idea for now

    Work cooked my brain today (too damn hot in the roof space), and to keep myself sane this idea brewed: Doing a ride covering A to Z of Sydney suburbs, as a social-orientated street ride (ie, moderate pace, SS/fixed friendly). Starting somewhere central such as the city, and cruising here and...

    Did anyone see Linkin Park in Sydney last night?

    If so, did you get the "come again" code? And could you share that with us please :cool: Ticketmaster are selling tonights gig for $50 if you have that code, as far as I'm aware it'll be generic not unique, and you'd do us all a favour as seeing Cornell would be worth that alone. As for...

    Who or what is Sub9? (Phantom Cycles, I'm looking at you)

    Instead of doing the smart thing and emailing those responsible, I thought it'd be more fun to start a thread which can deviate in to all sorts of rumours and innuendo on its downward journey :D Did anyone else receive an email from It was just a "test" but I assume it was...

    Advice on registering a Domain name wanted

    This is outside my scope of geekery, whilst I am well experienced with the basics of internerding going any further than forum whoring is beyond me. I need a domain name.

    How to Internet properly

    The internet is a wonderful tool, everyone uses it and having the power of information and communication at your fingertips should never be underestimated.

    My Italian supercommuter. update 23/09/07: SNAP!

    A while ago my old blue and yellow GT cracked, such a shame but the bike did have a solid 10 years of work done on it... conveniently enough I discovered the crack when disassembling it to swap components on to a new frame. This frame was bought off Gripsport, me seeing it and thinking "oh...

    My poor computer's been playing up of late, and I'm almost definite it's the motherboards SATA driver crapping itself. So a cheap PCI SATA card was bought.
